Elizabeth Arden Nail Polish Review

I know I've mentioned in the past the large amounts of time that I've spent on the Makeup Alley Nailboard. As a result of this time, I have bought massive quantities of nail polish. I own nail polish from OPI, Essie, China Glaze, Jessica, Zoya and so many other brands that I can't even mention them all here!

One of my favorite brands is one that you may not think of very often- Elizabeth Arden. Nail Polish is one of the best products that Elizabeth Arden makes, and I love it!

Elizabeth Arden's Polish applies like a dream, incredibly smooth and easily spreads across the nail perfectly. All of the shades are well pigmented, and I've only had to use 1-2 coats for full, even coverage.

The wear has been just as long as my OPI polishes. Last week I wore my EA Notting Hill Rosebud while working at the hospital, I had 5 days of wear without a single chip! I use Orly Bonder Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat for best results with my Elizabeth Arden polishes.

I usually buy my EA polishes at ULTA, if you're lucky you will catch a buy 1 bet 1 free sale!

Those look great on you. I love your nail shape.

I can't add another brand to my arsenal so it's probably a good thing we don't have ULTA's here. One of the few times I've visited one, the EA polishes were BOGO but I had to resist.

your nails look picture perfect- the colours so much like opi that the christopher street cappucino I almost mistook for opi midnight in moscow. I have never worn ea nail polish but after reading this will most certainly go get some. sharon

Years ago I used only EA polish. The product was discontinued. Now the product has been back for sometime is there any way to obtain the color I always used, if not can you recommend a color that may be close? The color was Ginger Jam, one of the favorites of many.

Thanks,
I. Wylie

I haven't seen Ginger Jam and can't find it online, so I'm not sure. The best place will be with the ladies over at the Makeup Alley Nail Board, some of them have amazing encyclopedic knowledge of polish colors. Here's the link: http://www.makeupalley.com/board/j.asp?bid=10

Thanks Christine,
I've been looking for a couple of years for the Ginger Jam and can't even find one that is close. I thought OPI would come out with something close, but they haven't yet. I will check with MANB.
