I saw these polishes up on the Charlotte Russe website awhile back & knew I had to try them. They were on sale 2 for $5 (regularly $3 each which still isn’t bad) so I picked up 4 in varying finishes. I liked the last polish so much that I actually wore it for about a week!
All swatches are without base or top coat. Each brush had some kinda wonky going on like above. I use tiny sewing scissors & snip without issue & then the brushes were okay. They’re thin & not very dense so not my favorite but I quite like the bottles. These shades don’t have traditional names so I went ahead & linked each to the Charlotte Russe site that is still available & numbered them. Online they have names…kind of so I’ll add those if I can. Note to anyone creating or selling a polish: Name those suckers! Affiliate links are below!
#1 isn’t available on the site currently but that doesn’t mean you can’t find it in store! The photos are somewhere between 3-4 coats so clearly I thought it was going to be a bit more milky. I love the mix of pink & blue glitter in everything so this wasn’t an exception. Next time I’m using a base shade though or opting to use this as a topper.
#2 is called Mint on the Charlotte Russe website. This is a nice soft but brightened grassy green. I like this shade in person quite a bit but the formula was meh. It went on uneven & chalky. I think this would have vastly improved with topcoat. This is 2-3 coats.
#3 was called Purple Glitter or something but it isn’t up on the site currently. That’s a real shame because this polish is absolutely gorgeous. This is a mic of chunky purple, blue, opalescent, & holo glitters that just look gorgeous in the light. If you can find this shade in a store I highly recommend picking it up!
#4 is called Light Mint on the Charlotte Russe website. The name doesn’t really fit this polish right? I think it is easy to see why this is my favorite…it is fabulous. You can visibly see this metallic pigment in it that shifts a bit especially with the additional glitter. It is just a showstopper. I had a few people ask what I was wearing for the week I wore it which is pretty rare here. People just don’t usually care about polish. I love it. & it is completely unique to my stash.
