Swatch of IsaDora – 776 Crown Jewel

Crown Jewel is a rich purple shimmer polish with hints of pink and a slight duochromatic effect in the right light. It looks much warmer toned in the bottle, due to the pinkish shimmer, but the base is such a royal dark blue it comes out a lot cooler toned on the nails. This is …

Swatch of nails inc. – victoria

Victoria is a rich dark red crelly polish, and so, so pretty! I received this in the Swedish December Glossybox, and I was so happy when I saw that it was the full sized bottle! The formula is rather syrupy, but not at all stringy or sticky. This is three coats without topcoat, and as …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 160 Licorice

Licorice is a cool dark grey cream polish and one that I bought and swatched last fall but didn’t get the change to write about until now. It’s a very nice autumn shade, but also a good winter shade I think, when you’re all red-and-green-ed out after Christmas. This is three thin coats without topcoat, …

Comparison of Chanel – 509 Paradoxal, MAC – Anti-Fashion, Max Factor – 145 Noisette and Sephora – 97 Drive Him Crazy

Like I said, I have plenty of this kind of nail polish – I just love so much! These four look very similar, I’d even go so far as to say that Paradoxal and Noisette are dupes. They were very similar in coverage, finish and appearance, whereas Anti-Fashion was a bit sheerer, and Drive Him …

Swatch of Chanel – 509 Paradoxal

Paradoxal is a cool brown polish with a lovely purple shimmer. The shimmer is very rich and deep in the bottle, but flattens out slightly once applied. Very much an autumn shade, which is a shame since you need that sunlight that summer brings to truly see the beauty of this polish. This polish was …

Comparison of Gina Tricot Beauty – 149 Sea Bug, IsaDora – 720 Beetle Green and KICKS – Jewel of Denial

Well, I couldn’t help but notice how similar Sea Bug was to IsaDora’s Beetle Green – a polish I praised greatly back when I bought it. I would say that Sea Bug and Beetle Green are dupes, and I threw in KICKS’ Jewel of Denial since it looked similar in the bottle. Jewel of Denial …
