100th Post – Cheeky Monkey

I know its been a whole week with no post, I was super busy planning out the next few blog weeks. And I really wanted my 100th post to be a good one, so it was finally decided it would be a review of Cheeky Monkey polishes. These polishes were sent to me for review by the company. Cheeky Monkey is proudly Big 3 Free.


This brand has stood out to me for a very long time as an extremely unique company. Each polish has a spicy name, a little message, and on the website there are reader’s stories to go along with the names of the polishes. It is hard to explain in one post, so go to their website, here, and check it out yourself, I promise you’ll be glad you did.


With names like Hot Slut, No Bra, and Camel Toe, I knew I was in for something exciting when I got my package. The three polishes sent to me for review, with great appreciation, from the company, are Romp, Man Chaser, and Wet Dream. The photos above show the colours in their bottle with flash (first photo) and without (second).




This first polish is Romp, a dark purple with awesome reflective-ness, if that is even a word, of different shades of that purple. Its looks really cool in real life, and I tried to show the colour in the three pictures (first = LED light on camera, second = no flash natural light, third = flash). Overall, really good deep purple, nice shine, this was two coats and it had a pretty good application too.




Next one is Man Chaser, a lighter pick shimmery colour, with the same reflectivity as Romp. This one was also two coats, but I still could see a little bit of VNL, which bothers some people but I can deal with it. The pictures are in the same order, and the most like real life is definitely the one with flash. Its so shiny that some spots can appear bald at some angles. Again, could bother some people but not me.




This one is Wet Dream, which is actually my favourite of the bunch. It looks like it has a lot more pigment in the bottle shots, but it really is pretty close to clear. Again, two coats, and the most lifelike shot is the first one (camera LED). My nails are a little yellowed still (I just switched base coats a few weeks ago) but you can see the slightest teal/green hint to the polish. This one applied like a dream (haha like the name) and I really liked it overall. Can’t wait to wear it when my nails look better.




These little messages come on the tags of each polish, and they make me laugh. I really enjoy the sassy feel of Cheeky Monkey and how they push the envelope with really unique names and ideas. Using real life reader sorties that relate to each polish name, and cute little messages on the bottles. Overall this company is really different and pretty high up there on my list.
