Mint Polish - Dirty Shirley

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday!  I have today off work and I'm loving it.  Today I have one of a new to Polished Cousins line, Mint Polish Dirty Shirley.  This is one of three we have coming up but when I saw this color I knew I had to review it.  It screams ERIN COLOR.  This polish gives me a heart attack.  It's a heart attack in a bottle.  I love it. 

Dirty Shirley is described as:  This bright and sugary pink has fruity hints of maraschino and a gorgeous pearlescent sheen in the sunlight. Inspired by a best friend's cocktail of choice, Dirty Shirley is a classic pink with a kick. Bottle color in one coat.  All true.  I would call the "pearlescent sheen" a blue violet pink shimmer.  Cupcakes!  Hearts!  Stars!  I love this polish.  I could have easily left it at one coat but I love two coats and it just made it even better.  Let's talk about formula.  Like butter.  It's the closet I've ever used to the perfection that is RBL's formula.  I also really love the bottle.  It's very easy to hold between my knees when I polish my nails, hunched over, on my lap.  What?  You don't polish your nails on your couch?  I used one coat of CND Sticky base, 2 coats of Dirty Shirley and one coat of HK Girl. 

Are you kidding me with this shimmer?  I die.

Best bottles ever

  1. Augh, that shimmer--it literally glows! This is such a sweet pink, and the finish is amazing. I love!

  2. Wow! That shimmer looks gorgeous together with pink!

  3. Reminds me a little of OPI Pompeii Purple (my very, very FAVORITE polish). I love this so much!!

  4. I recently got four Mint polishes and this is one of them- now I cannot wait to try it! Your swatches looks amazing. I also agree, their bottles are the best. :)

    1. Let me know what you think of the formula. I was so impressed.
