2014 Makeup Empties : nails

I'm starting my empties series off with nail polish. These are the nail polishes I used up in 2014, and I want to tell you what I thought off them and if I would repurchase.

O.P.I. Nail Envy Dry and Brittle nails base coat - I don't think this base coat helps my brittle nails, but it's a good base coat. It's quite expensive if you buy it in store, so I don't think I will be repurchasing this one.

Ciaté Speed Top Coat - Not the best top coat I've tried and did not dry my nail polish as fast as Seche Vite, so will not repurchase.

Ciaté Underwear Base Coat - Again a good base coat, but it didn't help at all with my brittle nails. So would probably not repurchase this one either.

L'Oréal Top Coat Matte - This is the best matte top coat I've found so far. The nails get really matte and it lasts long as well. Would definitely repurchase.

2 x Seche Vita Dry Fast Top Coat - I've gone trough two of these and am on my third bottle. This is the best top coat I've tried so far. Nail polish dries super quick and it gives nails a glossy finish. You can find this one for a really good price on ebay. I will continue repurchasing this one.

Ciaté 'Amazing Gracie' - This is my favorite pink nail polish ever. This one is a small bottle that I got in my christmas calendar last year. I've already repurchased this one.

Make Up Store 'William' - I couldn't find a link, so I don't know if it's discontinued. I really liked this color, but don't like the formula too much. I have another nail polish in the same color, so I won't repurchase this one.

Make Up Store 'Petra' - Again don't like the formula too much and it wasn't as dark of a red as I wanted it to be. So won't repurchase this one either.

This was the first round of empties, I hope you enjoyed. And have a great day! xo


  1. I love the OPI Nail envy, it has helped my very brittle nails


  2. Yes? It didn't do much for me. It's different how products work for people :) xo
