This polish is a bright purple creme with a slight shimmer. When it dries, it is supposed to have a grape scent.

This polish was fairly thin and  3  coats are needed to reach opacity (I only did 2 coats for the photo). When it dries, it is supposed to have a scent and I found the scent to be rather generic. It smelled similar to other cheap scented nail polishes I  used when I was a teenager. It didn’t even smell like grape which was a disappointment. However, the color of this polish is amazing!

One drawback to this polish is that it seems to like to chip and wear off the tips, even with a top coat (I used Seche Vite Fast-Drying Top Coat).

Overall, I love the color of this polish but the longevity and scent didn’t meet my expectations for the price.

This polish is part of the Katy Perry Collection from OPI. This polish is a top coat that dries with cracks in the polish. It looks like the polish was “shattered”.

This top coat was easy to use. This polish dries fast so you have to be quick. Just be sure to use a thick coat or the shatter effect isn’t as good. It dries matte but I added a top coat to make it shiny.  Also putting a bright or neon shade underneath this top coat looks really cool! I did mine with Revlon Grape Icy underneath.

Overall, this is a really fun top coat to play with and I would definitely purchase this again. It’s also cool to watch this dry, and being able to see the cracks forming.

Price: $8.50 (Ulta Stores)

This nail color is a very delicate, light pink. The consistency was a bit thin and I had a little trouble applying the color and making it look even; but I quickly adapted to the light touch I needed to use with this polish.

Overall, this color is a beautiful nude pink for everyday wear. I actually wore this to an interview yesterday and I love how subtle it is.
