Products I Regret Buying 3.0

I said this before and I will say it again.


I do not like E.L.F nail polishes and I will not purchase them ever again.


I bought loads of products from E.l.f such as their bronzer, blushes, glosses and lipsticks. I was really impressed with all of them, but definitely not the polishes.


I'll give you SIX reasons why I hate their polishes:


> bad quality nail polish brush (it sheds and it's too thin)
can u spot the ugly brush hair sticking out of the pink nail polish brush?
> too watery or too goopy consistency(what I mean is that I bought3 polishes from them and when I tried them on, the pink and lilac are too watery and the blue one..well..too goopy!)
> the lids/caps won't close properly(I have a photo below to show you what I mean)

> streaky when applied
> needs at least 3-4 coats or sometimes even 5(yikes!)
> and the worst part is that they will have this white base if you do not use them. I tried shaking the bottle several times, but nothing happens. I have couple of Revlon polishes that I haven't used for a year now, but they don't accumulate white stuffs underneath. Can someone explain this to me?

NOTE: all three of them have white stuffs accumulating underneath


The only good thing about these ELF polishes is that it is only a DOLLAR.

So, my conclusion? No more ELF polishes for me.

Do you have ELF nail polishes? What do you think?

Have a good week :)

  1. I've always been skeptical of ELF's nail polishes, people say they are good, but I am not convinced, for $1... I actually ordered their Teal one recently, we will see how good it is. Love this post! :)

  2. ELF products are cheap, i never understood why people were raving about them, but i might be missing something. When i see their stuff it reminds me of the drugstore makeup kits you get for little kids to introduce them to makeup. if that makes sense.
    pretty colors though.

  3. I agree, I bought the trio of polishes during Christmas and I hated them all. They all had no shine and looked matte when they were not suppose to be. UKKK....I will never buy them again either.

  4. @Justin- Thanks hun. I love elf products tho. They have good lip products but a big no no fr these polishes.

    @Alexis- I know what you mean. Some of their products might be too kiddy, but most of them are okay. I recommend their lipsticks and blushes.

  17. @Alexis - Try the ELF studio powder brush, that's all you need to know to believe how great their products are! :)

  18. I've always wondered about the ELF polishes. It's a shame they're not too great as some ELF products are brilliant for the price. Also, I'm jealous that you can get them for $1 - they're double that here in the UK! x

  20. I definitely won't be trying these. At least they are fairly inexpensive.
    If you haven't already have a chance to check it out, I have a makeup competition going on right now:

  22. What a coincidence! I recently just got my package and I bought 3 polishes from them. I gotta agree with you on everything you said about these polishes. Eeek! >_< The only thing I like are the wide variety of colors and the cheap price, but the quality is BLAH! I will make my review sometime when I'm not so busy. Hehe. I love the colors you chose though!
