Some Random Lemmings Fufilled

Hi there folks! I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for new places to shop for nail polish, both online and brick & mortar shops. A while ago I was approached by BeautyStopOnline to review some polishes from their store. I got a few polishes I had been wanting for a while but had not gotten the chance to pick up anywhere else. These aren't necessarily "hard to find" polishes but their stock is varied and they carry some older polishes from Essie, Orly, and China Glaze.

First is China Glaze Oh How Street It Is, from their 2009 Summer collection Kicks. I am in love with this collection and will be in rapture when I complete my collection. This is a super sexy hot reddish orange jelly crème that really pops. Fantastic formula, no issues and it dries surprisingly shiny! I'm so obsessed with orange these days. And believe it or not, I was before the Pantone color of the year was announced haha :) Two coats.

Next is Essie Sand of a Beach, cute name and beautiful polish. This is an older Essie that I had my eye on for a while, so I'm glad I finally have it. I can't find a release date for it, so if you know please tell in the comments. The color is a sheerish sandy beige with heavy iridescent pink shimmer. It reminds me slightly of Demure Vixen from Essie, but this is definitely a nude while DV is lavender. The formula was thin and a bit bubbly, in need of TLC application wise. This is three coats.

And last is Orly Coquette Cutie from the Pin Up collection of last summer. I completely bypassed this collection when I saw it in stores but had regretted it after they disappeared from shelves. I am happy to have snagged this baby, a bright/medium slightly coral pink crème. I really wanted this because it's beautiful and slightly dorky, but it reminds me of "croquet" and that reminds me of one of my favorite movies "Heathers". Silly I know, but the heart wants what it wants ;) Two coats, thick but manageable formula.

So if you're like me and always poking your nose about for new ways to spend your money, check out BeautyStopOnline, they have some great deals on polish! Do you have any of these pretties? How do you like them?
