Recently I went to Nordstrom Rack and found some Lime Crime products. The only thing that interested me were the polishes. I decides to purchase one.

Thoughts: I've been looking for bright yellow polish and Lime Crime is known for opaque, bright colors. For that reason, I decided to try it.
Here's a closer look at the color and it's brighter on the nails.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the length is shorter and the width is thinner. I would say the width is in-between thin to medium.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Lime Crime in Crema De Limon, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is in-between thin to medium. I found it difficult to paint around the cuticles. It could possibility be me since I am not the best when it comes to painting my nails. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. While applying, I noticed the polish got thicker. For that reason, it made me paint quicker than I normally do. It went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, this is the perfect bright yellow I've been looking for. It's great for spring/summer weather. Lastly, I found the polish a little bit odd. I've been wearing it for a week now and there's no shrinkage whatsoever. When it comes to chipping, there's barely on my left hand. I see one chip on the side of the tip on my left hand, and that happened on the fifth day. On my right hand, there's a lot of chipping at the tips. It happened after second day. After that, it didn't chip anymore. It's possible I use my right hand more than my left, but too that degree I don't know.

Pros:
* Medium consistency.
* It went on smoothly.
* No streaking.
* No bubbles.
* Bright yellow polish for spring/summer season.
* No shrinkage.
* Vegan.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* In-between thin to medium width brush.
* Polish got thicker with usage.
* It lasted two days before I noticed chipping.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
