Nail Polish:    ColorMates Nail Polish in Hot Red





Day Applied:    4/29/13

Cost: (Without any discounts)    $1.00 at the Dollar Tree

Coats until same color as the bottle:    Two coats and all nails looked the same color as the bottle.

Cream    Yes
Shimmer    No
Glitter    No
Other   

Drying time:   

Five minutes to touch dry, although I would give it a good 20 to 30 minutes before you try and do anything because I had to redo my nails after taking pictures of the Color Mates nail polish bottles because I accidentally hit my glasses with two of my nails and they smudged.

Day Two:   

Left hand nail, index nail has a tiny right side chip.  Right hand nails more chipped but that is my dominate hand.  Thumb nail has a a complete white strip showing along the top.  Index nail has the tip showing pretty well as well.  Pinky nail, there was a small tear that occurred while doing something and so there is a medium sided chip, but I do not blame that on the nail polish.  Did take longer than normal to get the top coat on due to an unusually active day today.

Day Three:   

Looks a lot like yesterday, with some light tip wear starting to show all nails.

Day Seven:   

Looks basically the same as yesterday, although I do think the chips on a few of the nails may have gotten slightly larger, but at this point it is hard to tell.
