I gotta say, when ELF announced that they were coming out with new nail polishes, I was extremely excited! I have a few bottles already, and I thought they were great for the price~$1.00 each! When they released a picture of the new colors, I was even more excited! They had a nude & mint colored nail polish that I couldn't wait to try out.
Earlier this year, I had my very first ELF haul & was not disappointed with the items I bought, especially the Eyeliner Pen & their mechanical eyelash curler . I bought 2 eyeliner pens this time & another eyelash curler for my sister since she loved mine! haha This time around, I bought the HD powder & can't wait to try it out on top of my Skinfood BB Cream. I've read many great reviews on it!
I bought all 5 new colors. Onto the nail polish swatches!
The name of this one is INNOCENT. It's a bit sheer, so I put on 3 coats. This is a nude nail polish color -aka mannequin hands- Application is very easy & not streaky. I love it
Next we have DESERT HAZE. At first glance, Desert Haze & Innocent look very similar. Desert Haze is actually a light brown color. I applied 3 coats.
Here's a comparison of the two:
This one is SMOKY BROWN. When I looked at the bottle, I was expecting a light brown, but was surprised to find a nice, chocolate-brown color! It applied very smoothly. It only took 2 coats to get this nice, vibrant brown.
This is LILAC. It's a nice pastel purple. I applied 3 coats~application was not streaky. One of my favorites! It reminds me of OPI's Do You Lilac It?
THIS is the one I was most excited to try~MINT CREAM. I have a bit of an obsession with Mint nail polish at the moment & can't put down my China Glaze Re-freshmint, so I was itching to try ELF's version of Mint Green nail polish. I applied 3 coats & I LOVE THE COLOR!
Here is a comparison of China Glaze Re-freshmint & ELF Mint Cream. Mint Cream is darker than Re-reshmint. I love both colors!
All in all, I thought these nail polishes applied easily. They were not streaky & they dry fairly quick. I love the little black boxes they came in too! A huge plus---On the box, it states that these nail polishes are Three Free, meaning no Toluene, Formaldehyde, & Dibutyl Phthalate in their formula! Probably the best thing about these nail polishes is the price. Nothing can beat gorgeous, $1.00 nail polish!
