Essie Da Bush and CVS Nail Polish Remover Pads Review

As I type, the rest of my family sleeps. The internet in this hotel is very slow tonight. I'm not sure I'll be able to get my two pictures uploaded. At least the 5 or 6 women who played twister above our heads last night are gone...or out for the evening. 

Today I used these  nail polish remover pads to get the daisies off my nails. It took 2 pads. Each pad is thick, slightly nubby, and soaked with nail polish remover. $4.19 for 10 pads. The box claims that one pad can get polish off of 10 nails. Maybe so, but I had probably 4 or 5 layers with all nail polish to paint the daisies, plus that was back in August so the polish was really old.  However, the pads did get the polish layers off, and I was able to paint them today.

This is 3 coats of Essie Da Bush. It's a light mossy green. At first, I didn't think I'd like it too much, but it's grown on my now. The first coat is really streaky but the next coat evens it out. The 3rd coat completes the smooth look. I thought this was similar to Essie Sew Psyched but *click here* I see that one is a really dark moss.

I bought this in a minis set at TJ Maxx a couple days ago. Not really crazy about the mini brush that comes with mini bottles.

What do you think of Da Bush? Do you own it? Do you like it? Do tiny nail polish brushes bother you?

Ok. Crossing fingers this will upload. If you see it, that means I was successful. Take care and see you soon!

I actually don't mind the tiny brushes, they tend to make me paint a little more accurately! That green is gorgeous on you!

I can see what you're saying about the tiny brush. I like this green too. Thanks for your comments Emily!

Erin that sounds fab! I feel Da Bush needs something because under fluorescent lighting I really didn't care for it.
