French Pink Comparison CONTINUED!
Polishes used in this test (from pinky to thumb) are Nailene French Manicure, Essie Pink is the Link, Sally Hansen Persistent Peony, Sinful Colors Dozen Roses, and Zoya (this is an old one) Demeter. On their own, they all look pretty good, Demeter is a bit yellow for me but it is a duochrome.
With a french tip, most of them look nice, the exception being Dozen Roses, Persistent Peony does look a bit pale, though.
Finally, completed, Demeter is too yellow for a tip, Dozen Roses is too streaky and opaque, Persistent Peony is just a touch too pale (for my tastes at least). French Manicure and Pink is the Link look wonderful!. I'd buy EITHER the Essie or the Nailene, the advantage to the latter is that it comes with a base coat/top coat, tip guides, and a white pen. The Essie came in a mini pack with Ruby Slippers, though!
I used Nailene White French Tip Pen, it seemed to crackle a bit, maybe because my base polish wasn't all the way dry :(. Some items used to make this manicure were sent to me for review. These products have been fairly tested with no bias on my part.
