Hot Pink Nails :)

Ahh.. the story of my life :p
I am not the risk-taking style so once I settle on something, I love buying the same (or almost same) products over and over again. I was looking at my recent purchases and nail polishes I already had, and I realized that I have way too many hot pinks!

Here's the line up
All five look similar in color - hot pink!
So I'll try to compare them

here's how I compared them. I took one dip and tried to utilize each nail color using that given amount.
(Full hand swatch - From left to right: OPI, essie, VOV, VOV, NYX)

* OPI - Don't Know... Beets Me!
- It's a more berry-magenta color compared to essie (status symbol) & VOV (Barbie Pink)
- Application is smooth and buildable
- Once applied, the formula spreads out to create an even smooth surface (very good!)

Color : 8/10
Texture : 10/10
Drying Speed: 9/10
lasting Power: 10/10
Overall: 9.5/10

* essie - Status Symbol
- It's a brighter pink than the OPI
- Very buildable
- A bit more watery than the other polishes
- Creamy shine after drying is the best out of all

Color: 9/10
Texture : 10/10
Drying Speed : 9/10
Lasting Power: 9/10
Overall : 9.75/10

* VOV Barbie Pink
- The best "neon plastic pink" color
- Truly lives up to its name
- Not buildable at all
- Clumps and doesn't even out
- Takes the longest to dry out

Color: 10/10
Texture: 6/10
Drying Speed: 2/10
Lasting Power: 7/10
Overall: 6.5/10

* VOV Pastel Red
- Sheer texture with tons of shimmer in it
- Doesn't even out
- Hard to build

Color: 8/10
Texture: 7/10
Drying Speed: 8/10
Lasting Power: 8/10
Overall: 8/10

* NYX Dolly Pink
- hehe.. didn't even know I had this color :p
- Drying speed is fast but the formula runs a bit
- Darker berry tone than even OPI
- Quite Sheer

Color: 8/10
Texture: 8/10
Drying Speed: 9/10
Lasting Power: 5/10
Overall: 7/10

I didn't even know I had the NYX polish, but glad to see that it has a different tint than others :) All in all, I still love pinks and hot pinks so I am not going to discourage myself and I am going to continue buying hot pinks :p
What's your favorite shade? :)

  1. my fave shade is hot pink! I keep buying loads of hot pink nail polishes. I really have a huge collection of nail polishes. I think I own at least 80+ nail polishes of various shades. I'm really a nail polish fanatic~

  2. haha, you should do a show and tell post of all your babies >.<) what other shade do you like? I'm still in the exploring stage so it'll be nice to see what others like to wear :p

  3. yay hot pink!!! i actually liked the vov barbie pink's shade the best among the rest :)

    hmmmmm. i love really funky colours like mint green, pale yellow....... but i can't wear that on a daily basis! :P one of my fave polish is Opi's You Don't Know Jacques (it's a greyish colour!) :)

  4. I'm into the hot pink shades too, but I also love purple. There are some pink shades that are on the purply side I love. I will have to dig through my OPI to find the shades >.< I like wearing deep purple. OPI makes a gorgeous sparkly deep purple shade that is one of my faves.

  5. black of course hehe
    anyway i think that the OPI looks the nicest =)

  6. ooo! Hot pinks, I love the essie and VOV ones the best!
