Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Review

Tuesday, March 23, 2010
Hi dear reader!
I received three polishes of Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. These were sent to me by Alice & Jo's. They received these polishes as samples and they asked me for an opinion about them.



All lined up! Here you see Pop My Cherry, Man Chaser and Virginal Pink. I love the names Cheeky Monkey gives to their polishes, they crack me up.



There is a little motivational card attached to each polish. They make me smile and I have to say that I agree with them! Very cute!



First up is Virginal Pink, a sweet, light coloured pink. I'm not sure how virginal looks like in colour but I guess this comes close haha. I'm wearing four coats in the picture, yes, four! This polish wasn't covering at all and applying it was awful: too thin and streaky.

I know this polish is ment to be a little sheer, but I dislike sheers and I wanted to build it. Didn't work, too bad.



Here you see Pop My Cherry. Jelly goodness! Unlike Virginal Pink this applied amazingly good and for a moment I was in polish heaven. I'm wearing three coats in the picture. Pop My Cherry is a really bright, vibrant red, and it's super shiny.

I tested this polish in the weekend and I must say that I was impressed. Normally I change my mani every day (chipping and tipwear - I'm too clumsy for long nails) but I wore this one two days. No tipwear, no chipping. Wow. (Sad how impressed I am when other people wear their mani's for 3 days or more, haha!)



Last but not least: Man Chaser. I love this one, seriously I do. I'm not a pink fan but this... It has blue shimmer in it and that makes this pink special! This polish was also great to apply, not too thick or thin. I'm wearing three coats.

What to say? I'm not disappointed by these polishes except for Virginal Pink, but hey, there's a rotten apple in every collection right? ;) If you're interested in Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics you can always have a look on their site. Please pay attention to the polish names, they're funny!

Oh, and in case you were wondering: I had a file accident, that's why I'm having a bloody line on my pinky.

That's it for now, happy polishing today!

Pop My Cherry! Wat mooi!

Andrea said...

Hey thanks for reviewing our products! I am glad you liked Manchaser and Pop My Cheery. The virginal pink is suppose to be a barely there pink. It will never be the opaque colour you are after- next time I will send some Born again Virgin (a creamier formulation and I think a cheekier fit for you!)
Cheers

I loved the red and the pink one. I also dislike sheers! I wear the same polish for 3 days!!! LOL

I'm still waiting for my samples :P It's been a month now *sigh* i guess shipping to India takes time. Or it might just be the corruption here :( Whenever these customs and fedEx dudes see a nice looking package, they label it as 'suspected hazardous' and takes the contents home for their wife,lol. And I've heard Cheeky Monkey comes really nicely packaged.
I might be wierd, but I wish they had sent it in a plain old cardboard box. I always receive those packages. I hope Andrea from CheekyMonkey finds out what happened to the package.

rhea, apparently the package had some of our nice stickers on the outer carton and the shipping guys contacted Andrea about it being undelivered... she is sending out a new one today... with a coupel extra bottles to make up for the trouble and share with your friends ;)
