Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Tease

Hey everyone!  Guess what!  I have another new brand to show you tonight.  This is Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Tease, a light concrete grey creme.  I grabbed this as part of a 3 bottle set a little while back after hearing that I needed to try these polishes.  I am slightly disappointed that I have to report this wasn't the awesome experience I was hoping for.  I am going to say that my disappointment stems from the light coloring.  I find that all polishes that lean towards the pastel range of colors have a streaky/gloopy formula.  This was a pretty gluey polish, but was still workable. 
2 coats Tease, no top coat, artificial light
Cheeky Monkey is a 3 free brand that comes in a bottle that is almost identical to Cult Nails cylindrical bottle.  The difference here is that the top has the grippy material like the top of the Orly bottle.  The bottle has the polish name in various fonts plastered all over the glass.  It's actually really cute packaging.  I definitely want to try this brand in a brighter formula to see if this is just a fluke.  The other color in my trio is similarly light and I don't want to try that before I grab a brighter color.  I am worried that I'll give myself a bias against a nice polish brand!

Has anyone else had this type of experience with Cheeky Monkey?  How cute is the brand name?



  1. I hate greys. They all look horrible on me. Bleh.

  2. Even dark ones? I am not a fan of most light greys on me, but I do have a weak spot for dark murky greys. I will have to post a few soon!
