Cosmetic Arts - Pink

Hi everyone!!

This Pink Wednesday, I have a no name polish by Cosmetic Arts.  When I was in Vegas this past June, I picked up a few colors in Ross for $1.99 each because I'd seen several nail enthusiasts talk about this brand.

The formula for this polish was not the greatest.  It had a streaky application and was a bit on the thick side.  Honestly, I'm not sure how  I feel about it on me either.  Anyhoo, I used Sally Hansen Diamond Strength as a base, 2 coats of polish, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Do you see how chalky it looks around the cuticle?  I wasn't happy about that.


This is a pretty color, I'm just not sure that I like it on me.  Also, I wish the formula was easier to work with.  I hope the other ones I have, have a better formula.

What do you guys think of this one?  Have you tried it?

  2. Sucks that the formula wasn't so great, I wonder if a little thinner would have helped. I don't see the chalkiness, and I think it looks just fine on you!

    1. Not sure if the thinner would help. It's not very thick at all. Thanks!

  3. I've tried a few; got them at Ross for around 3 bucks and figured since this is color club's cousin it could be good. I got a peach and a lilac and they've been okay. I don't like the thin brush but it's manageable. I used thinner to work around some of the issues. The colors are pretty though, I wish I could run into more.

    I compiled all the displays I could find online which were the only ones with names as far as I can tell.

  6. Such a bummer about the formula. But it does look good on you! Maybe you should thin it a bit. I hope the other ones are better!
