Ulta Chic Peek

xoxoJen's swatch of Ulta Chic Peek

Application was ok, the polish wasn't very fluid so I had a little trouble with coverage on the side edges of my nails.

Pure Ice Mint Dream

Application was very smooth, however; I think this is around 5-6 coats an I still have VNL. Eh, its alright though sometimes its nice to see that. ;)

OPI DS Extravagance

xoxoJen's swatch of OPI DS Extravagance

Application was quite globby, I nearly gave up on it but when it dried I couldn't even see the brush strokes. Go figure!

Sally Hansen Purple Pizzaz

xoxoJen's swatch of Sally Hansen Purple Pizzaz

A very fun jelly glitter! It was easy to apply, though the brush tends to hold a lot more than needed. So if you get this, watch for drips! Went on smooth, and I think this is about 3-4 coats.

Pure Ice Dreamy

xoxoJen's swatch of Pure Ice Dreamy

I took two snapshots and had to use this one because of the bling factor from my flash. I giggled when I saw it!

Dreamy by Pure Ice is a coral colored jelly like polish with iridescent glitter in it.
