2007-2008 Top 20: #14-#11 Vignettes

#14: Hot Topic Iridescent Purple

I love this color despite its inability to be photographed properly. Almost all pictures of this color appear blurple, which it is not. It has some blurple glitter, but it is a true purple. It's kind of jelly with gorgeous glitter flecks that resemble glass. The bottle and brush will definitely give a user fits due to its inconvenient shape and cap, though.

#13: Chanel Antilope

After the disappointment of Black Satin and US Vamp, Antilope turned me to the dark side known as Chanel. I loved the neutral tone, especially during summer 2008. My favorite application of Antilope was for French tips. The main problem with Antilope is the dreaded streaks from metallic polishes, but I feel like the gorgeous neutral shade makes up for it.

#12: Essie Wicked

I turned to Wicked after my purchase of Chanel Vamp turned to be a bust. This was my first crème vampy, which I loved immensely. Of all my Essies (with the exception of a certain mini bottle), it is the only bottle close to empty.

#11: Hard Candy Sky

Hard Candy Sky takes me back to the days when quoting Clueless was "in". This color was popularized by Alicia Silverstone when she name-checked it on Letterman. I remember the bright pastel colors and of course, the ubiquitous jelly ring. I didn't get a chance to own it until very recently; their website had them for sale at $1.75 a bottle. The shipping cost more than the two polishes I ordered. I found Trailer Trash and Tantrum at TJ Maxx for $2.99 each along with a lot of their other makeup products on the cheap.

I like that Hot Topic Iridescent Purple as well. I love really bright colors anyway. I have a black bottle of polish from Hot Topic and I had the same brush problems.

Vanessa--sadly, Hot Topic doesn't ship overseas :(

Nessa--YES! I have a lot of trouble with purples and blue/greens.

The Pretty Brown Girl--That brush is just a pain! Hot Topic's color selection is pretty good, though.
