Review: Dearlee Candy Color Nail Polish in Apple Green from Born Pretty Store

Yay finally an apple green nail polish that feeds my craving for pastel and summer-ish nail polishes. A big thank you to Born Pretty Store for offering me to try out and review this Dearlee Candy Color Nail Polish ♥ . If you happen to check this nail polish on their shop, you'll see that its part of a nail polish kit or collection, with a total of 8 candy colored nail polish.

These nail polishes are really perfect for suuummmmmerrr! Haha. Anyways on to the nail polish that I got, here is an honest review and some swatches for you guys :)

This nail polish has a bright green shade which resembles that of an apple, thus the name Apple Green. The bottle reminds me of those nail polishes from OPI and I find it adorable. But I got confused about the nail polish after a while because the brush handle has a design similar to that of the crackling nail polishes. But then again, it isn't one of those crackle thing, its just a plain nail polish. The brand I guess is Dearlee, which seems so asian to me (specifically Korean-ish. Lol I am thinking of Lee Min Ho now haha).

At the back the ingredients are written as follows: Butylacetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite.

Haha crackles? NOT

The shade is very very much the same as the ones in the photo, and its really an apple green. Consistency is thick and can be applied in one or two coats to reach the desired color. The brush is thick which made it easier for me to apply the nail polish (but still I am not good at doing it :| )

And here it is on my nails. It looks somewhat different in color as I am only using my mobile phone and the setting is in night mode.. But you can clearly see that its a bright apple green shade and I love it. Green used to be my favorite color before purple came to view but now I think I am going to be using this nail polish a lot =)

And because I am a noob at nail polish application, mine turned out to be streaky and just ugly so I had to go for three coats to achieve my desired shade.

Overall, I am really happy with this nail polish. It is sometimes difficult to look for nail polishes that has the same color as the ones on the bottle as some can be confusing and turn out to be sheer, but this particular one isn't because what you see is what you get.

This nail polish retails for $4.39 on Born Pretty Store. But if you buy all 8 shades you'll only be paying $30.43 which is a huge saving of course. And if you want to save an additional 10%, just use the coupon code JELW21 upon checkout to receive 10% off your total order. BPS ships worldwide for free and that's another saving :)

 I am really happy and glad that I got the chance to receive this product. I am hoping to get my hands on the remaining 7 colors soon so that I will have a complete collection of all 8 summer nail polishes which I am really looking forward :)


  1. Lee Min Ho *____* <3 haha. I like that color. Kinda weird that it's a crackle top but the polish isn't though... I am seriously loving pastel colors lately!
