For the most part, Basix polishes are solid colors with a decent, if thin, brush – something that polishes in the $1 generally have problems with. All of the swatches are two coats and (even though this is loosely tied to the top coat testing) no top coat. I don’t think that there are any “blow your socks off” colors, but they’ll meet your basix needs (get it? get it? oh I just tickle myself!)
Sheer Pink Opal is another irridescent that flashes blue with just a little more pink base color than the previous ones, the rest are your typical shimmers. I did notice that these polishes lean to the frosty side so thin coats are a must else you end up with a streaky application.
Joe: Another batch of them. How many freaking pinks can a woman put on her nails?
Earl: Eh, my new girlfriend, Jessie, says the numbers are infinite.
Joe: I’ll just call the first one Pink Opal.
Earl: Still on the opals, Joe?
Joe: Aw, can it. You’re not the one stuck naming them. And Pink Ice and Ice Raspberry. Oh yeah and Crystallized Pink.
Earl: You’d think that you lived in a jewelry store, Joe. You ever think of giving Edna a gift certificate to the WalMarts instead?
