Swatches of OPI – 50 Shades of Grey Collection

Hey guys! Long time, no blogging again! There’s just so much you can do when your nails break off, you know… Oh well. Onto the swatches! A few weeks ago my friend Tina over at Beleza gave me this entire collection since she had already swatched them and needed space for more polish. Oh poor …

Swatch of OPI – Can’t Find my Czechbook

Oh, OKAY, I’ll show you something a bit more in season, then! Can’t Find my Czechbook is a gorgeous swimming pool blue that I could only wear if I’m wearing a bikini for two weeks straight. I have a hard time wearing bright colors when the weather is dull and I still have to go …

Swatch of OPI – Green-wich Village

Green-wich Village is a medium pea green crelly polish and was a bit of a lemming of mine for quite a while. Just by chance I walked by Sephora last fall and they had this polish on 50% sale, so I gladly picked it up. I really have no idea why it took me until …

Swatch of OPI – Elephantastic Pink

Elephantastic Pink is the perfect medium pink cream polish. It has a hint of a yellow undertone (that made my camera go ballistic and capture it as a peach, so I had to color correct it a lot), and as such it suits my skin tone perfectly. This is two medium coats and no topcoat, …

Swatches of Estée Lauder Travel Exculsive Collection

The red and berry red polishes are not color corrected, see below for accurate colors. My husband and I went to the Canary Islands last week, and I picked up a few polishes while we were there. This cute little travel collection from Estée Lauder I picked up at the airport on our way home. …

Swatch of OPI – OPI…Eurso Euro

OPI…Eurso Euro is a medium blue cream polish with strong purple undertones. You will have seen this polish all over the nail polish blogiverse, but I think it deserves a post on my blog as well. The formula is okay, a bit on the thin side if you ask me. This is two medium thick …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 161 Classy Red

Classy Red is just what it says, a classy red. This is two flawless coats without topcoat, it has an amazing formula and dries glossy. It’s richer and darker than the other two bright reds I have from Gina Tricot (might do a proper comparison), but I’d say the closest polish I have to this …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 178 Peach Coctail

Peach Coctail is (first of all, misspelled) a coral crelly polish that I’m just dying to wear! This is three easy coats, you will need the third since you’ll be able to see the nail line if you only use two. The formula is very nice and easy to work with, cleanup and removal was …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 139 Purple Mint

Purple Mint is a pastel purple with blue undertones and a very classic color for spring. The formula is good, but a little bit milky, so I’d say a third coat is required to make sure no bald spots are visible, here I’m wearing two coats and no topcoat. It dries fairly quick and with …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 176 Power Pink

Power Pink is a dusty peachy pink cream polish that I am surprisingly comfortable in. The photos don’t really show that the polish is slightly pinker than my skintone, but it is. This is two coats without topcoat, it applies slightly uneven and not so self-levelling, but the second coat sorts that out. Very office …

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 …
