Review: Essie Clearly Matte with Love and Beauty Nail Polish

All I have to say is I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Essie's Clearly Matte Topcoat. Its really hard for me to find a nail polish that actually stays on. It seems to make the polish color you're coating more saturated, in this case, it made Love and Beauty's Neon Pink, more neon! Essie polish can get a tad pricey to collect but I grabbed this one off of Hautelook's Rock and Republic Cosmetics sale. The ONLY con about this topcoat is that the layers get heavy, and it'll chip with a quickness once you wash your hair out or do anything around the house where you're putting more pressure than usual on your fingertips. 
It gets 3.85 out of 5 Moxie kisses LoL, I'd recommend it more for some fab weekend nails! 

Personally, OPI and Sally Hansen polishes have never worked out, they've always been a one way ticket to Chipsville. The only color on my nails that I've loved have been by MAC, Confetti, Wet and Wild, Island Girl, and Sinful Colors. In my opinion, in the 'nails did' department, you want to spend the big bucks on your topcoat and/or your base coat if your nails need it. When I was shopping the other day, an electric hot pink caught my eye. Forever 21's dabble in the cosmetics department has been getting pretty positive reviews. So far I've tried nail polish and faux lashes from them and love them both! With only two coats the color was vibrant. I would suggest everyone to check them out, at only $2.80 a pop, you can afford to have a whole rainbow in your bathroom cabinet!
It gets 5 out of 5 Moxie kisses, they come in every color and can last about a week!
*don't mind the choppy application, hahaaha*
