* Rating key:

 = excellent color – gorgeous and mesmerizing on the nail; excellent formula – not too thick, not too thin, no more than two coats

 = excellent color; fair formula – either a little too thick, too thin or requiring more than two coats for full coverage

 = good color – pretty, but average; fair formula

 = good color; formula is hard to work with – way too thick and uneven or too thin and streaky, even with multiple coats, but color is good

 = doubt I’d wear it again – disappointing color or horrible formula or bad brush or chips immediately

Note: I can’t judge long-term wear, as I usually only wear a color for two days.  If you’d like me to test a certain polish, let me know and I will do so.
