Finally my pink nail polishes. I was afraid of this post because I'm a pink girl and I wasn't sure how many dupes I will find. In the end it wasn't too bad but now I'm sure that there is no need to buy any "medium" pink nail polish for a year...at least :D I probably don't need any pink nail polish for some time but let's not make fake promises :D
Here we go! I sorted them by shade, most realistic color is in the bottle. Nail wheel refused to cooperate, but here it is anyway. You can at least see diversity among the colors side by side. As always I added short description to the pictures if you are interested in that :)
Basic Beauty number 43 - This is the lightest pink nail polish that I own. Very shimmer and very sheer. I like to use it for nail art but it is also good layering.
Rimmel Star Kissed - This one is also very light, cream base with holo glitter. Very nice!
Catrice Miss Piggy Reloaded - I like this color a lot, it is soft pink with multicolored shimmer which is very subtle. Unfortunately it is discontinued.
Essie We're In It Together - This is a true beauty! Light pink with loads of purple / blue micro glitter.
Essence Flamingo Roses - Light pink with silver shimmer. Just a little bit darker from Essie and Catrice.
p2 Flirt With Me! - This one is light cream pink. Since I have few nail polishes very close to this one I didn't wore it a lot.
Catrice Sweets For My Sweets - This is one of my favorites! It is perfect for nail art because it has great opacity and it looks very pretty on it's own! Like a lighter version of Barbie pink. The base is cream with loads of darker pink shimmer which is very subtle.
Deborah Milano Ballerina Tutu - When I first saw Ballerina Tutu I knew I'm gonna buy it but I only wore it once or twice. It looks gorgeous in the bottle but on my nails is just little bit to light for my taste.
Oriflame Clover Hate - I'don't have much to say about this one except that this is my oldest nail polish and I'm afraid it will end up in trash very soon :D
Maybelline Mauve Diamonds - Hm...this one was a disappointment. It looks stunning in the bottle, so shimmery and beautiful but when you apply it on your nails there is nothing. The color isn't that pretty and it is very, very sheer. You can look at the bottle in the picture above and believe me when I say that I used it only once. You probably need million shades to make something of it!
Basic Concept Open Air Kiss - I'm not very familiar with the brand Basic Concept but I like this nail polish.This one is the darkest so far and it is very pretty. The color is very interesting, dusty pink and silver shimmer. Perfect for winter holidays.
OPI My Address Is Hollywood - This one is not light and not too bright, it is right in between. The base is cream but there is loads of golden glitter which looks very pretty especially in the sun.
Golden Rose number 268 - This one is a cream, light but much brighter then the polishes on the first picture. Very beautiful.
China Glaze Pink Plumeria - Another favorite! The color is coral pink, it is very bright even though it is light pink. Pink Plumeria was part of last year's China Glaze Summer Neon Collection but this isn't neon and I don't mind at all because it is so beautiful and it draws a lot of attention.
Color Club Space Case - Now this would be light pink neon with loads of multicolored glitter which is not sparkly. Weird I know, but truly beautiful.
Uma Psychic Pink - Uma is another brand I'm not familiar with. Psychic Pink is bright shimmery pink. It looks nice on the nails but I have to admit I prefer how it looks in the bottle.
Deborah Milano Love At First Sight - I was obsessed with this nail polish when it came out, so obsessed that I have a backup bottle :) I love glitter nail polishes and this one was the closest to it at the time. The base of this nail polish is pink shimmer with pink and golden glitter!
Bourjois 1 Seconde number 15 - This one looks a lot like Deborah Milano LAFS, the same shade of pink but different formula. Instead of glitter here we have shimmer. You can guess which one I prefer ;)
Here is the wheel with all the colors so far where you can see the difference.
Next group of polishes is the problematic one :) These are my "medium" pink nail polishes. They are not light and they art not dark, also they are not too bright. The colors are very similar so I will just add their names bellow because anything else would be too confusing. Pictures of the bottles are realistic so click on them to see them more closely. The wheel looks little bit darker then in real life but you can look at it anyway. I added numbers for each bottle and nail wheel so I hope it helps.
Basic Beauty number 18
BeYu number 334
Basic Concept Miss Piggy
Avon Viva Pink
S-he number 462
Bourjois 10 Days number 15
p2 Brilliant Cosmopolitan set
Douglas number 143
Essence Naughty And Pink!
Catrice Hot Or Not?
Sinful Colors Boom Boom
Golden Rose number 322
Sinfil Colors Folly
Essence Roy's Red
Catrice Raspberry Fields Forever
Classics number 28
...and the same picture without flash...
Essence Let Me In Pink - Dusty pink, cream and very beautiful but somehow I always forget about it. I wish I reach for it more often.
Essence Princessorize - The only difference between this and the next one is the shimmer. Base micro shimmer is the same in both polishes, but Essence has pink, purple and blue larger shimmer while S-he has larger silver shimmer. Both look beautiful but I prefer Essence.
S-he number 467 - Look at previous description.
Sinful Colors Cream Pink - Even though the name is Cream Pink this isn't cream nail polish. The base is cream pink but there is also loads of golden micro glitter which makes this nail polish very special and beautiful.
Basic Beauty number 467 - One of my darker pinks, very nice shimmery color!
Essence Bright Alert! - with Bright Alert! we came to the bright pink group, which is my favorite. Essence Bright Alert! is a nice nail polish but probably my least favorite in the picture above. The reason is that it is too sheer and it would look the best with white base but I'm always lazy for that.
Golden Rose number 66 - This one is also very pretty but same as Bright Alert! too sheer on it's own. I bought it when I was on the mission to find perfect bright pink.
China Glaze Hang Ten Toes - Absolute favorite! I love everything about this nail polish. Gorgeous purple pink color, neon shimmer...perfection!
Color Club Ultra-Astral - This one also goes to the group of my pink favorites. Bright, bright pink with glitter. Like I already mentioned Color Club glitter is not sparkly but it looks amazing!
Golden Rose number 328 - Just like Golden Rose 66 this one is not very opaque but I like how this one looks on it's own. Cream with gel like finish.
Julep Samantha - This screams summer. Just a tiny bit darker then ultimate summer neon China Glaze Pool Party.
China Glaze Poll Party - When I bought Pool Party my mission to find perfect bright pink was completed. I adore this nail polish, perfect summer color with matte finish.
So that's it! Tell me what do you think of my pink collection? Is it too big or just right
Do you have some of these nail polishes in your stash?
