Bongo Nail Polish Sweet Cheeks Swatches




I rarely shop at K-Mart but I was there a few weeks ago and saw that they had a new display of BONGO nail polishes. Every time I see new displays, I'm always checking out if anything interesting gets my attention and the only thing that stood out for me was Sweet Cheeks.

Sweet Cheeks is a sheer jelly pink with pink and blue shimmers that gives it a bit of a duochrome appearance. Surprisingly, I got a fairly decent coverage with just 3 coats. The formula wasn't too thick or thin and was really easy to apply and work with. The brush is slightly flat and just the right size for me.

I think it looks pretty on its own but I've swatched it over other colors. The duochrome effect looks much prettier and noticeable over a darker base.

My main complaint would be the drying time. This polish seems to take forever to dry. I thought it was $2.99 or at least that is what I remember seeing on the display but when I looked at my receipt, they charged me $3.99. Hmm...I'm annoyed when stores don't get their prices right.









What do you think of this polish? Is this something you'd want to try?

  1. I never would have thought to pair a polish like this with darker colours underneath! I've never heard of Bongo before but this looks so pretty.

    1. It's new so I guess that's probably why not too many people know about it. Layering polishes can be fun and creates new looks.

  2. I love it over pink! Bongo jeans were the bomb when I was in junior high :)

  5. This is really pretty on it's own and swatched over the other colors. I can't deal with polishes that take forever to dry though.

    1. Me too. It messed a few of my nails cause it was taking too long to dry.

  6. I found this at Kmart on clearance yesterday for .74 cents. So glad to see it swatched. I was going to give it away as a gift in a grab bag. Thanks for the review. :)
