Someone asked me "What polish is that?"... and I was a little embarrassed to reply. It's Tramp Stamp by Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. Cheeky Monkey is a funky, fun, edgy brand, not to mention their 3-free formula. Moreover, browsing the website and reading names like Nail Me, Dirty Secret , and Spank Me are bound to make you giggle.
I purchased this polish at the Blush Pretty Beauty Board for $10, a good discount from their regular price of $15. I bought this mainly because I don't have anything like this in my collection.
I'm guessing because this polish is new for Spring 2013, the bottles do not have the names in the white graphics. The bottle size is that of a typical full sized polish (15mL). The lid is rubberized and the brush is thin near the handle, fanning out slightly (comparable to that of an Essie brush). The larger lid is attached to the brush which makes it a little more finicky to hold when applying the
The colour and formula of the polish stand out (even more so than the name). I'd describe the colour as a HOT red-toned purple with a cream finish. The formula is slightly watery but extremely pigmented. It's opaque in 2 coats and ultra-bold in 3. The lasting power is impressive at 4 days without chipping with Revlon's no-chip top coat.
While the cheeky names are gimmicky yet hilarious, the actual formula, colour, and staying power of the polishes are beyond what I had expected and even surpass the price point. I'm also currently wearing this colour on my toes... it's amazing! It is said that you should live life with no regrets; if there's one thing I regret, it's that I should have bought more of these polishes.
I'd highly suggest looking at the Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics website if you need a little pick-me-up and don't get offended easily. What's your "hottest" colour of polish for the summer?
