Another quick one tonight as I'm ridiculously pooped today.  I still haven't gotten back on my work sleep schedule, so I'm going to bed at around 1 and waking up between 5:45 and 6:30.  It's not very enjoyable, as I'm sure you could imagine.  Today, we're going to take a look at Sinful Colors Cinderella.

Cinderella is a powder baby blue jelly with a gorgeous pink flash.  The flash is pretty prominent in the bottle, and, luckily, it's prominent on the nail.  

Application is a bit tricky.  The first two coats are very streaky.  It also clumps a little and thickens the longer you keep the bottle open.  This is three coats, and, as you can see, it is patchy in spots.

Here's the pink flash on the nail.  I really love this effect.  It's like the polish is glowing on my fingers.  Simply gorgeous.  

Despite the application issues, I really enjoyed wearing this polish.  It was one of those polishes that I just sat and stared at all day.  Unfortunately, Cinderella has been discontinued, but you can still find it if you dig around the bins at Walgreens.  While I liked Cinderella, I have another baby blue polish with pink flash that I like much better.  Girly Bits Arctic Sunrise is everything Cinderella isn't.  It has the gorgeous color and the perfect application I've grown to love from Girly Bits just a little bit darker blue.  I'll try to show that one to you guys sometime next week.

Do you have a baby blue with pink flash polish?  Which one and what do you think about it?

Comparison Thursday: Vampy Reds/Purples

I apparently have a million vampy red (and purpleish red) OPIs...  I thought it might be a good idea to check them out tonight!  I decided to toss in a China Glaze and an Essence for good measure.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Top Row (top picture) right hand: Black Tie Optional, Have You Seen my Limo, Int'l Date Line, Fateful Desire, and Mat-adore Red

Bottom Row (top picture) left hand: Prey Tell, Germanicure by OPI, Every Month is Oktoberfest, La Boheme, and Painted Desert Crimson

All of these polishes applied really well.  They're all two coats and perfect, except for the smudge on my right thumb...  Here's the finish breakdown:

  • Cremes: Prey Tell, Int'l Date Line, Fateful Desire, and Mat-adore Red
  • Color Shifts / Multi-Chromes: La Boheme, Black Tie Optional, Have You Seen my Limo, Painted Desert Crimson
  • Shimmers: Germanicure, Oktoberfest

There's not really much to say about these, other than Germanicure and Oktoberfest are similar enough to not have both.  Prey Tell is pretty much the creme, non-chrome version of Black Tie Optional.  They both have the same rich and deep red that borders on purple.  My La Boheme doesn't have the strong gold and green flashes on my nail, but I think it's because I really need to shake the crap out of my bottle to mix it up a little better.  It's gorgeous in the bottle.  The black label OPIs smell pretty terrible, but they apply much better than the green labels.  I wish I got home with enough sunlight to show off the gorgeous shimmers and color shifts in these polishes, but I got home well after the sun had set.  I'll try to take pics again on a weekend so you guys can see how pretty these polishes truly are.

Pretty much every single one of these polishes has been discontinued.  I'm not really sure about the Essence, but the rest can only be found in salons or supply stores that have older collections.  Prey Tell, Germanicure, and Oktoberfest would be the easiest of this grouping to find in the main chains like Ulta since they were released only a few months ago.

Which is your favorite?

New email address!

Just a quick post to let you guys know that I've updated my email address to  I finally realized that I needed a dedicated blog address.  If you need me for anything, that's the best way to contact me.

I'll have a real post for you guys tonight.  In the meantime, check out the most terrifying book covers I've ever seen in the children's section of a book store...

Expectooooooo Patronum!!!!!!!!!!!

The nails are still on the mend.  Super short.  Super sad.  I'm dousing them with cuticle cream constantly and applying my Rejuvacote based on the box's instructions.  I am a little skeptical about the whole "apply one coat every day" instruction.  Loodie makes a very good point here.  (By the way, if you have any questions about nails, how they work, or what they're made of, Loodie is a genious, and you should definitely check out her blog!)  I added the extra coats last week and my nails grew crazy fast - before they started tearing on the edges.  The past few days, I decided not to add the extra coats, and so far, it's been 4 days and they aren't showing much progress.  I'm going to go back to adding the extra coats tonight.  Also, I found more bottles of Rejuvacote at my Bed Bath and Beyond for $9!  I'm so glad I found them close by so I wouldn't have to pay shipping.  I hate shipping costs.  Always.

Tonight, we're going to take a look at Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum.  It was one of my first Dollish lemmings, and I was so glad when I snagged it!

Expecto Patronum is a milky white based polish with two sizes of teal holographic glitters and orange/green flakies.

This is three coats with 1 coat of top coat.  It needed a little thinning to get the right consistency, but after it applied well.  I was much luckier this time in getting the flakies than the last time I wore it because they're a little hard to get out of the bottle.  It dried smoothly and only required one coat of top coat.  This was one of the first white creme polishes that I actually liked on me.  I think the teal lends itself well to ghostlike whiteness.

Here's a sort of blurry closeup so you can see the flakies.

Expecto Patronum is currently available in the little gift pails on Dollish's site right now.  It will also be available in her restock next Wednesday, the 5th.  You can purchase her polishes at her store, Llarowe, and Overall Beauty.  Stay in the know by following her blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

Do you have any Harry Potter themed polishes that you adore?

Game plans!

I don't know about you, but I always feel better when I have a goal in place and a plan to reach that goal.  This past weekend the hubs and I sat down and set up a monthly budget with goals for savings for emergencies and vacations.  My bank has a pretty kick ass online banking tool, so I was able to set up a goal through them that would either tell me how much money I need to save to hit a certain target by a certain date or how long it will take to hit the target amount when only depositing a certain amount per month.  I'm feeling pretty good right now!  Plus, I've pretty much gotten all of the prizes together for the holiday giveaway.  I can't wait for the rest to be delivered so I can let you guys in on the secret!  Until then, let's take a look at some polishes!  This is an oldie but goodie, Pahlish Train Underwater, since my nails are the nubbiest they've ever been...

This is three coats in the sunshine.  

Train Underwater is a navy blue based polish with navy blue, light blue, and fuchsia holo hexes and giant holo  hexes.

It applied really well, with the glitters spreading evenly, and the large hexes coming out easily.  Look at that color saturation!  This is one of my favorite polishes of all time and my all time favorite Pahlish.  It's pretty similar to a few other polishes I have, so I plan to do a comparison post sometime soon.  Maybe this week if you guys want!

You can purchase Pahlish at her Etsy store and Llarowe.  She restocks every Friday night on her Etsy store, which is cheaper with faster shipping.  Nothing against Llarowe or anything, but just sayin.  Check out her Facebook and Twitter for updates on restocks and new collections.

What's the last goal you've planned that you were truly excited to reach?

Fantasy Fire!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, otherwise, I hope you all had a great Thursday!  It appears that this week is a multichrome week!!  With the exception of my Thanksgiving mani, at least.  Let's take a look at Max Factor Fantasy Fire, shall we?!  I received this in a swap, but it is unfortunately only available in Europe.  Another sad thing about it, it comes in a tiny bottle.  Only 9 mls versus a normal sized bottle of 15 ml.  Conservation is key here, people.

Fantasy Fire is a purple based polish that shifts between purple, gold, red, and green.  It was really uneven on application, so it needs three coats.  I only used two, and there are visible bald spots in places on my nail, which isn't really noticeable in the pictures.  This is one of those few color shifting polishes that is just as beautiful on the nail as in the bottle.  It is a near duplicate of Clarins 230 (Unicorn Pee) and Urban Decay Toxin.  Those are super hard to finds, so I don't have any to do a dupe comparison.  I can't justify spending that much on one bottle, no matter how much I want it!  So, without further ado, here is my Max Factor Fantasy Fire!

Check it out in the bottle - gorgeous color shift!

Here are a few shots at different angles to show the shift on my nails.  This is two coats over a SOG I frankened a few weeks ago (pics of that will come later).

Man, I miss my longer nails.  They are super nubs right now due to massive damage I inflicted on them from peeling polish and peeling SOGs.  Even the Rejuvacote hasn't kept them from tearing on the sides just at the free edge.  It's been very sad around here because of that.  I mean, they're so short that there isn't a free edge to be found right now.  The Rejuvacote was working wonders on the length, but I still have too much damage to keep them long for a decent amount of time.  I'm just going to have to wait until all of the damage grows out.  Le sigh.

Anyway, back to Fantasty Fire.  Here's a closeup shot to see the color a little better:

Lastly, here's a blury pic from my iphone to show what it looks like in the sun:

Do you have any of the mythical Unicorn Pee polishes (Clarins 230, Urban Decay Toxin, Girly Bits Shift Happens, Max Factor Fantasy Fire, or Nfu Oh 51)?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has had a fantastic holiday!  This one will be super short so I can spend more time with my family.  Here is Girly Bits Crunchy Leaves with Hit Polish Thankful as an accent.  Crunchy Leaves is a redish brown with a diluted jelly brown base with brown, red, and orange glitters.  This is three coats.  It's a little hard to apply but fills out well with the third coat.  Thankful is a clear base with brown, gold, and orange hexes and bars.  It spreads really well and worked perfectly over Crunchy Leaves.

What did you wear on your nails for Thanksgiving?

Just Spotted the Lizzard

My contract gig is pretty cool in that I don't have to do anything other than read people's emails and other documents saved on their computers all day to determine whether they are responsive to requests for production from the opposing party in a lawsuit.  I've been doing contract work like this for quite some time, but I only recently discovered that I can listen to an audio book and work at the same time!  Honestly, I do have to stop my book once in a while to make sure I am completely focused on a tricky document, but usually, it's not an issue.

I had been subscribed to Amazon's audio book service Audible, but I was listening to so many books in one month that it just wasn't worth the price for me.  Instead, I switched over to, which has an unlimited streaming option.  Basically, you pay $24 for unlimited streaming of any book in their repertoire.  When I'm working, I don't really like to listen to anything that's too academic because then I wouldn't be able to focus on my work.  I try to listen to potato chip novels instead, since they're so easy to follow without using too much brain power.  The term potato chip novel came from my 12th grade English teacher and is used to describe those easy books that can be devoured in an afternoon.  I always liked that description, so I still use it.  Some may think potato chip novels are a waste of time and energy, especially those people I went to college with...  Having a literature degree has its perks, but sometimes it gets annoying, lol.  Anyway, I'm currently listening to the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong.  It's pretty good if you like fantasy and supernatural stories.  Nice and light with some pretty good humor.  Anyway, that's just what I've been up to the past few weeks.  Do you use an audio book service?

Today, I'm going to show you OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, which comes from their Spiderman collection released earlier this year.  You may luck out and still be able to find these shades at salons, Ulta, or even Kroger (a grocery store in the south).

Just Spotted the Lizard is a green chrome that flashes gold, teal, and sometimes purple at a certain angle.  Allegedly, it's a dupe of the famous Chanel Peridot.  Since, back then, I wasn't really into polish as hard core as I am now, I don't own Peridot and can't compare the two.  I probably never will, either.  I was interested in Just Spotted the Lizard because of its similarity to Peridot simply because it's my birthstone!  I have tons of Peridot jewelry, so of course I needed Peridot nails, am I right?!

Just Spotted the Lizard applied fairly evenly, but you can still see some brush strokes.  The other colors flash more in the bottle than on the nail, which always disappoints me.  Here, I've tried hard to capture the gold and the green.  The other colors didn't cooperate with my camera.

I wasn't sure if I would like Just Spotted the Lizard because I don't usually do gold tones.  It just doesn't really look right with my pink-toned skin.  Once I had it on, though, I was pleasantly surprised with it.  I know that several other companies have a polish just like this since everyone is trying to jump on Peridot's popularity bandwagon.  I chose Just Spotted the Lizard because, not only was it the easiest for me to obtain, but I also love OPI polishes.  They last the longest on my fingers than any other brand.  So, I chose this Peridot dupe out of brand loyalty.  I'm a bit of an OPI fan girl and have been since I was in high school (going on 13 years!).

What's your favorite brand of mainstream polish?

Recipe Tuesday? Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Cake

Preparing for Thanksgiving has been a bit hectic.  We aren't hosting this year, but my parents are staying with us, which means I had a lot of cleaning to do.  It took me most of Sunday afternoon to get my polish room organized and tidy.  Our Thanksgiving with my family is always a pot luck style lunch where each of us brings a predetermined dish.  I'm making some Brussels Sprouts and a gluten free Meyer lemon cake, while my hubby plans to make his famous cranberry dressing.  He also makes sausage stuffing for his family who usually celebrates Thanksgiving with a mixture of traditional American dishes and Syrian food.  He's 1/4 Syrian, so I am lucky enough to get some super tasty food during the holidays!  One of my sisters is providing ham, a fried turkey, and a few pies.  The other sister is providing a twice baked potato casserole.  It'll be a nice mixture of healthy and not so healthy dishes.  Hopefully, I'll be able to make a decently healthy plate without too much gluten or fatty deliciousness.

Because I am on a clean eating diet, I decided that I wanted to make something that I could eat for dessert.  My sister is making two pies that are AMAZINGLY delicious, but they are both chock full of sugar, gluten, and fat.  I'll still probably steal a bite, but I can't eat a whole piece without getting sick or ruining any weight-loss progress I've made this week.  Last week was a disaster where every piece of food I saw went directly into my mouth, so I'm doing major catch up this week on the whole dieting thing.  Don't worry  I don't starve myself.  I always get between 1400-1700 calories a day!  Only 11 pounds to go!!!!  That being said, I made the decision that I needed to find a dessert that would suit my needs so I wouldn't feel left out or deprived.  Last week, the hubs came home with a Meyer lemon, which I quickly claimed as mine.  [Side note: I LOVE baking, and even though I bake a little less than I used to, I still bake quite a lot.  The hubs is an amazing cook and loves to create unique dishes that are both tasty and healthy.  Sometimes, we battle over ingredients, which is what we did for the lemon.]  Once I knew I had secured the lemon, I had to find a gluten free and no sugar added recipe to try it out in.  I searched around and found this little recipe.  I adapted it to use Xylitol instead of sugar and part skim ricotta instead of the fully loaded stuff.

This recipe is SUPER easy to make and only required minimal dish use, which, in my opinion, is the sign of a good recipe!  I'm sharing it with you guys today in case you're still looking for something to bake for your family.  Let's get started!  First, preheat your oven to 350*.  Next, gather your ingredients.

2 cups almond flour/meal [You can find Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal at most grocery stores in the organic section.]
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 cup cystalized xylitol or sugar [Xylitol can be found in the dietary supplement section at Whole Foods.]
1 tsp vanilla
1 15 oz tub of part skim ricotta cheese
Zest of 2 Meyer lemons
Juice of 2 Meyer lemons

1 2 cup measuring cup (or medium bowl)
1 large bowl (or stand mixer bowl)
1 stand mixer (with paddle attachment) or hand mixer
1 9 inch deep pie pan or springfoam pan, oiled

First, combine the almond flour/meal, baking powder, and salt in your large/stand mixer bowl.

Next, wash, zest, and juice your lemons.  Then, combine the eggs, xylitol/sugar, vanilla, ricotta cheese, zest, and juice in the 2 cup measuring cup. 

Take a whisk and mix the ingredients until they are well combined.  You may want to add in a little ricotta at a time to make the mixing a little easier.

Then, pour the wet mixture into the large/stand mixer bowl.  Mix on medium-low until all of the ingredients are combined.  Do not over mix or the cake will fall and crack.

Lastly, pour your batter into your oiled pie pan and toss it in the oven for 50-55 minutes.

Bake until the top is a golden color and the center is no longer jiggly.  The original instructions tell you to refrigerate it for four hours before you eat it.  I, however, like my cakes hot, so I dug in just after it was cool enough to eat.  So, the refrigeration step is optional.  This recipe makes 16 servings.

I was SO surprised with how this recipe came out.  I see cake and assume moist, fluffy, cake cake.  This, however, was a cheese cake but without all of the richness that comes with cheesecake.  Also, because I used xylitol instead of sugar, the cake wasn't overly sweet.  If you're looking for the type of cake that makes your tongue tingle with sweetness, I'm sure that could be achieved by using sugar instead of xylitol.  I however, found this cake to be delicious and refreshing!

For those of you looking for the health information, here's what I got from a calorie calculator using all of the ingredients in the picture above.

Later on in the week we topped it off with some High Road Aztec Chocolate and Caramel ice cream, which was AMAZING.  The coolness of the ice cream with the warmth of the cake is always a nice dichotomy.  But what I liked the most about this pairing was the how the ice cream had heat from the chilies but the coolness of the lemon helped keep the heat from being unbearable.  It was delicious!

Please let me know if you decide to make this recipe.  I'd love to know what you think or if you made any changes and how they went!

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, what are you making for dessert?

Black Tie Optional

Tonight's post will be short.  I hate doing short posts, but I feel bad skipping a post, too.  I guess a short post is the lesser of two evils?  As I mentioned before, I'm not painting my nails as often as normal right now because I'm testing out a new treatment, which requires you to leave the treatment on for 7 days with a fresh coat every day.  I was able to keep the same color of polish on for 4 days before they started chipping and flaking off in sheets.  I think that the additional coats are making it so thick that it's chipping and flaking pretty easily.  I am skeptical that you need to apply a fresh coat every day, but I'm going to follow the instructions to the letter for now to see how it works.  So far, it seems to be working pretty well.  I can tell a noticeable difference in length and strength, which is saying something because my nails grow at a snail's pace.  I'm going to track my progress every week for the next four weeks, and I'll do one big post with the outcome and my review sometime in December.  I didn't want to wear paint this week, but I have had so much to do and hate having nekkid nails.  I've already done my Thanksgiving mani, which I'll show you guys on Thursday!

Anyway, tonight I have OPI Black Tie Optional for your viewing pleasure.  I found BTO during a dusty hunt, and I snapped it up immediately.  Unfortunately, this guy has been long discontinued.  BTO is a vampy purple multichrome polish that flashes gold and green depending on the light.  It applies really well like most OPI black labels, but it also smelled pretty bad.  The multichrome shows up as well on the nail as it does in the bottle, which, I feel, is atypical for most multichromes.  I tend to feel let down after realizing the bottle is so much prettier than my manicure.  BTO did not disappoint!  This is three coats.

Like I said before, Black Tie Optional is a discontinued shade, so you'll only be able to find it where really old polishes are sold (like at salons).  I love it and think it's well worth the hunt if you decide you want to dusty for it.

Do you have any duochromes or multichromes that show up just as well on the nail as in the bottle?

Friday, November 16, 2012


Tonight's post will be wicked quick... I apologize for any weird formatting as I'm writing this post up with the horrible blogger app. Anyway, I'm in the process of chopping off my nails, which I'm doing for a few reasons. Firstly, I'm trying to chop off as much of the previously damaged nail as possible. Secondly, I want to test out a new treatment I just received in a swap, Duri Cosmetics Rejuvacote. I've heard that this stuff works wonders, and my nails need a miracle... So, for the next 7 days at least I will have naked(ish) nails (this treatment without any color). I'll make sure to take pictures of before and after for you guys.

So, with that being said, I only have my week's haul to show you! This week is way atypical for me. An awesome new friend gifted me all of those minis when I swapped her for Candeo Sour Grapes. I also swapped for the Rejuvacote. Lastly, I purchased the Hares and Elevations with my monthly budget and for a weightloss goal gift. Granted, that was way before I realized how broke I was, lol! Anyway, I have plenty of nail mail to sate my need for pretties for a little while. ;)

What are your plans for the weekend?

Comparison Thursday: Light Purples

Today's Comparison Thursday will be quick and dirty.  Since we're looking at cremes, there aren't any macro shots.  Hopefully, though, you can see how these four polishes compare to one another.  Let's take a look at Revlon Charming, OPI Rumples Wiggin', OPI Done out in Deco, and Essie She's Picture Perfect.

Three of the four are straight up cremes: Charming, RW, and DoiD.  SPP is a shimmer.  This is three coats for the cremes and 2 coats for the shimmer.

I made this guy giant so you can see the details a little better since I don't have any macro shots tonight.

Charming is the cheapest alternative to the four light purples.  It's a Revlon, so it does have a bit of an application problem generally.  You know, it's sheer in some spots but clumps in others.  Luckily, it didn't give me any problems with this swatch, so it looks pretty good.  It's just a hair darker than RW and a bit lighter than DoiD.  It's a pretty good substitute for the other three polishes as it's close in color, not discontinued, and not ridiculously expensive.  Charming is available where Revlons are sold.

Rumples Wiggin' has a pink tint making it lighter than the others that all lean a little blue.  It has the best application of them all.  Unfortunately, it's discontinued, but you can still find it at salons both used and new.  If you decide to get a used bottle, make sure it hasn't been sitting near the window as the color can quickly grey out.  I've seen some RWs that look blue because they've faded so much.

Done out in Deco is a dusty lavender that spreads evenly and smoothly.  Unfortunately, it is also discontinued and goes for quite a bit of money on ebay.  However, again, you can find this guy at salons if you look hard enough!

Finally, there's Essie She's Picture Perfect.  SPP is a light purple with a pink shimmer that makes this polish glow.  Unfortunately, it applied the worst out of the four tonight.  Usually, I have the most problems with the Revlon, but for some reason the Essie was being a major pain today.  You can even see the clumpiness on the right side wall. 

Since these are cremes, there's not a whole lot to say.  The OPIs applied the best out of all of them.  If you can't find RW or DoiD, I think that Revlon Charming would be a pretty good substitute.  What do you think?

Which is your favorite?

Oldie but Goodie: Nfu Oh 61 and 62

Wearing the same polish for longer than a day is so BORING.  Am I alone in this?  Ugh!  Luckily, I'll be changing my polish tomorrow for Comparison Thursday, which will be light purple cremes (i.e. Rumples Wiggin, Done out in Deco, and the like).  Until then, I've been in the same polish for two days.  It's very dull.  I do have a few recent swatch photos that need editing, but I'm saving those for later.  I'll soon be nekkid nails for a week or so as I'll be getting a new treatment to try out later this week (thanks to a swap from a lovely lady!).  I'll definitely make sure to show you guys how they look before and after to see if this stuff really works.  Tons of people I know swear by it, and you can see its handy work over at the Polish Monster whose nails are looking long and luxurious these days!  Anyway, that's for next week.  For now, let's take a look at a few old holos!

First and foremost, let me take a moment to discuss my skin in these photos.  It's awful.  Unfortunately, I have pretty bad eczema that flares worst during allergy season.  Almost nothing helps with the cracking and flaking when it's in full on flare mode.  It's not enjoyable in the slightest, but I'm glad that it only flares twice a year.  I really liked this polish combination, so I took pictures despite the horrible skin.  If you have skin that looks like this, and you weren't sure what was wrong, you're not dying (or rotting as I like to call it).  It may just be eczema, which can be prevented with a steroid cream at the first signs of flare-up or by lathering yourself in lotion CONSTANTLY.

Go to a dermatologist to have it checked out as there may be a simple solution to fix it!  ANYWAY, back on topic.  Try to ignore the terrible skin up in here, if you will, and take a gander at these gorgeous polishes!  Nfu Oh is a brand that I had never heard of before this year as it isn't sold in stores near me.  In fact, I'm not really sure if they sell them at brick and mortar stores in the US, as I purchased mine at Fabuloustreet.  I found out about this brand when I was searching for a comparable duplicate to the hugely sought-after China Glaze OMG.  They had also been sold out for a long time, so when I saw they were on sale, I pounced!  Nfu Oh 61 is a silver linear holographic polish and 62 is a nude-ish pink linear holo.  Unfortunately, you pretty much have to use their Aqua base or they will clump, wrinkle, and drag.  The application is terrible on both.  You really need to move quickly to have any hope of a decent end product.  I decided to top off my accent nail with a tape mani technique of China Glaze Liquid Leather and the gorgeous holo glitter topper China Glaze Fairy Dust.  The lobster had photos are shot with my super vivid setting to show the rainbow best.  The others are shot with normal photo settings.  Just look at that rainbow!  The terrible application is worth the end result, so be patient if you decide to purchase these guys.

Check out the intentional blur here for the gorgeous holoness of Fairy Dust!

What do you think?  Do you like the tape mani art?  I was pretty pleased with this mani, but the wear time wasn't that awesome on my non-accent nails.  I topped the rest off with the lightening bolt later in the week once the tip wear got on my nerves.  Like I mentioned before, I purchased the Nfu Ohs at Fabuloustreet.  You can purchase both China Glazes at Sally's, Ulta, or where other China Glaze polishes are sold.  Neither are discontinued.

Which of your polishes has the worst application?
