Cheeky Monkey Review & Swatches!

Happy Hump Day, what better way to celebrate a day with that kind of name than with Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Nail Polish! I can't exactly remember how I came across Cheeky Monkey, I think most likely on another blog but I was drawn in by the outrageous names. I have a weird sense of humor and with polishes named "Camel Toe" and "Party Whore" I could not help but want every single one. I have to admit, I am praying for some stranger to ask me what the name of the polish I'm wearing today is just so I can see the look on their face when I say that I am wearing Raunchy Bitch!

Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics is the brain child of Andrea Pahn, who was bored with what was out in the market. I am so glad she was because seriously guys this polish is pretty awesome! All of Cheeky Monkey's polishes are 3 free which means no yucky chemicals like Formaldehyde are lurking in their formula, all their polishes are also non-toxic and a 1 on the skin deep cosmetics safety database. If you are like me and have no idea what the skin deep cosmetics safety database is click here and read about it, it's actually pretty interesting!

Okay, enough talking onto pretties! First up is Bite Me, a light rosy pink, now if you read my blog you know that I have a bit of a light pink phobia. Thankfully, I am getting over it...I think blogging and opening myself up to shades I would usually scoff at has helped me. Bite Me applied sheer at first but built up very nicely. The bottle suggests 2 coats but I chose to use 3 just for a little more opacity.  The formula was great, not too thick or thin and the brush was easy to work with. Check out the super cute bottle too, they are to die for. Kudos to whoever designed the bottles, they are great!



Next up, Hot Slut! I love the name of this polish probably more than I should. Hot Slut is a blue toned red, it looks like something Gwen Stefani would rock... it reminds me of her trademark red lipstick! This color is definitely hot, dare I even say SEXY! I can say with absolutely certainty that I have never in my life called a polish sexy, but this one deserves it. I don't have a lot of reds in my collection so I'm happy to add this one to it! This is 2 coats of Hot Slut, I think the color looked the best in the sun but unfortunately it gave my camera a seizure when I tried to capture it that way :(


Lamp Light

Last but definitely not least, my personal favorite Raunchy Bitch! Raunchy Bitch is a dark blurple base packed with blue shimmer. It is awesome! It's one of those colors that glows! I'm so happy I beat the sun and was able to get a picture of how fantastical this one looks! This is 2 coats of Raunchy Bitch!

Shade w/Flash
Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Nail Polish retails for $15 and can be purchased directly on their Official Website

So what do you guys think? I'm adding Camel Toe, Nympho and Hangover to my wishlist!

BONUS CONE HEAD DOGGY PIC! Poor Degen is still a cone head, he has been for a while. It breaks my heart, he seems okay with it though. I took him to the vet (again) last week and $250 later (almost $700 in the last month or so) they have decided that he probably has a Hay Fever Allergy. He's on a bunch of pills and I have to put a gross cream in his eye (he got conjunctivitis from rubbing it). So for now, he wanders around like this only answering to Cone Head The Barkbarian. He was following me all over the backyard while I was taking pictures of the Cheeky Monkey polishes!

  1. i need hot slut just for the name!

  2. lol I know right! I love the name of that one so much!

  3. OMG, I love all three of those! The first one is my favorite... I've been looking for a really good light pinkish color. I had a bottle of chanel polish that was perfect but I used it too much and ran out and I'm not spending that much money on nail polish again! haha

  4. Bite me is a very pretty color! Aww and poor pup!

    BTW, Thanks for subscribing :)

  5. Lol, crazy names. I really do hope someone asks you the name of your polish!

  6. unfortunately no one did :( But I took the bottles to work and all the girls got a good laugh out of the names! I believe Hot Slut was the favorite!
