Review: Canmake's Peach Cream, Butter London Teddy Girl and Etude House Jelly Pop top coat

Hi guys :)

So as you guys already know I've been a bit on a nail kick lately. I just wanted to share some swatches of the polishes and top coats I've been trying out for the past few weeks.

As far as my review of Butter London Polish "Teddy Girl" its described as a "bubblegum pink". I think of it more as a Barbie doll pink, as you can see it leans pretty strongly towards white. It takes 3 coats to become opaque. As far as chipping goes it usually lasts 2-3 days without chipping, but after that its chip city! It looks a lot better after you paint all the coats and then add a top coat. I'm not a fan of the brush or formula however. It can be a bit thick and has a skinny brush much like Essie (and I'm an OPI fan)

Canmake Peach Cream 46 Etude House Jelly Pop top coat review

So here is a picture of Canmake #46 Peach Cream polish with Etude House Jelly Pop top coat.
Canmake Peach Cream review: I LOVE the color of this polish. Its a beautiful almost jelly like coral. Its a bit lighter than Chanel's distraction, which I mentioned that I loved before! It takes 4 coats until its acceptably opaque...but if you look closely you can still see through the polish. It lasts about 3 days without chipping, but doesn't seem to chip off in huge chunks. Its also a bit annoying to apply because it can get very thick and the brush is skinny. Gorgeous color and great formula, horrendous application.

As far as the Etude house jelly pop top coat...this has to be one of my favorite top coats ever! It applies quickly and easily and is a bit thicker than seche vite...BUT it doesn't have as strong fumes and doesn't tend to thicken in the bottle as seche vite does. It has the same chip-resistance as seche vite but I will admit that I think seche vite is a tad bit shinier.

And thats all for now :)
Sorry I've been so out of touch...I've been moving, attended many friends graduations and went on a very small trip to Catalina Island recently. OH! And I've been swimming :) Which takes up a lot of time (and energy) hahaha.

PS. Please ignore the stupid horribly outdated camera is being stupid since I dropped it and I haven't fixed it yet -_- My apologies!

In case you want to watch my video review you guys can see it below:

I also talked about the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray, Benefit's Hervana blush and an awful top coat called "Hong Kong Girl"...yes that was really the name. Hahaha!

Take care :)

In the top picture, Teddy Girl looks EXACTLY like Borghese Angelica Blush, which is my favorite :) but in the second it looks pretty different ><

I'm always surprised at th big difference that lighting makes (~_~;)

The second color looks like it suits your skin very well~
It's warm and bright :)
