This first polish, Maybelline 'Bronze Beam' I had hoped would be a fine copper glitter in a mid-copper base, but instead it was a very grainy glitter..... with ALOT of texture, While it is a very pretty color, I think I needed 3 medium to thick coats of T.C. to get it smoothe, it really is a weird texture. I do not foresee myself doing a full mani with this any time soon.
This polish is Sally Hansen 'Peanut Shell', which belonged to a collection of polish's that Sally Hansen named after " thing's underground", or something like that. I have recently used all of this in my purple batch of frankens, it came in handy. It was a very pretty color but just too close to my skin tone.... and I would likely never wear it. I purchased it for $ 1.25 at a small pharmacy in my town, I have already used all of this polish, and the bottle & ballz in my recent Franken polish's.....
Goodbye 'Peanut Shell' Thanks for everything.

This polish, 'Emerald Water' is one of those super-duper sheer polish's from Maybelline that came out in the late 90's. I purchased it in anticipation to thin out my 'Antique' Maybelline polish's, if necessary. So far so good. I remember painting my nails with these in the store ( yes, I did that ) and was mystified as to why anyone would paint there nails with this.... this looks so sheer...... weird, I wonder if it co-incided with some Earth Day or Green Peace deal = That was big in the mid to late 90's.
I saw on a few other nail blogs that using these ridiculously sheer polish over a rich silver looked really, really pretty, and I did try that but after 4 COATS there really was not enough color to make a difference.
Also, I find this looks blue, not at all emerald. Maybe someone fell asleep at the nail polish labeling masheen, again ?

Finally, we have Ghetto-Ghetto Fabulous. I have this 'Viva' brand polish in black as well, and I am certain that this is Auto body paint just in a tiny bottle. Sometimes it gives off the aroma of standing water in a creek or bog, but mostly I can detect the scent of an Auto body paint booth. Of some photos I have seen , this sorta looks like Misa Ghetto Fabulous, though I have never seen that polish first hand. These photos of Ghetto-Ghetto Fabulous were taken during an overcast day. Definitely a polish that should be used out side. I think it's a pretty color and plan on a full Mani soon with some Sunshine Pic's .
