Hi everyone! Today I have the most difficult polish to capture on photo ever created, or MAC Rain of Flowers, to show you. I bought this polish ages and ages ago, right when I started collecting nail polish, and was blown away by the beauty in the bottle. When I tried to take photos of …

Swatch of OPI – It’s MY Year

It’s MY Year is a gorgeous warm purple polish with a very prominent gold glass fleck shimmer. I’ve had this polish for quite some time and never gotten around to swatch it, but here it is finally! I love warm purples and I wish they would suit me better but I think they clash with …

Swatch of NYX – NPS220 Gold Glitter

Gold Glitter is a gold flake topcoat polish in a clearish base (it gets a slight yellow tint after a while). This is one coat on black underwear but it is stunning on top of most polishes. Gold Glitter är ett överlack med guldflingor i en klar bas (som kan bli lite gultonad med tiden). …

Swatch of Max Factor Max Effect Mini – 17 Green Bronze

Green Bronze is a black based polish with golden tiny flakes, and is actually neither green nor bronze. I absolutely love black based polishes with gold in them, like China Glaze – Cast a Spell or W.I.P – Supernova but what I like about Green Bronze compared to the other two is the amount of …

Swatch of NYX – NPS205 Manhattan

Manhattan is a blackened purple shimmer polish with large shimmer particles in blue and purple. It’s rather sheer, I needed three coats for it to reach full opacity. The amount of coats give it a nice depth, though, so I think it’s definitely worth the extra work. Manhattan är ett svärtat lila skimmerlack med grova …

Swatch of NYX – NPS184 Enchanted Forest

Enchanted Forest is a lovely green glitter polish, the base is a cool green bordering on teal with green and gold glitter particles, which makes it look slightly duochromatic in certain lighting. It’s been a huge lemming for me and when CherryCulture had 40% off all NYX products I just had to get it. Enchanted …

Swatch of ORLY – Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is a blue based green polish loaded with tiny golden flakes. It’s slightly duochromatic in its bottle, but I wasn’t expecting any of that effect to show up on the nail. This is three easily applied coats, and even though this is a Christmas polish, I love these kinds of …

Swatch of MAC – Rain of Flowers

Rain of Flowers has a dark, warm purple base with large purple and blue shimmer particles, and is officially the most camera shy polish I have in my collection. The camera goes absolutely bananas and only picks up a fraction of the shimmer, and what is does pick up looks over-saturated and blurry. It is …

Swatch of MAC – Biker Blue

Biker Blue is a dark teal based polish with large blue shimmer particles, and is absolutely stunning. The shimmer is however more visible in the bottle, like with most shimmer polishes, and it was a bit of a let down when I bought it, but I love it regardless. It takes about 2-3 coats to …

Swatch of Lancôme – 011 Piha Black

Piha Black is a black based polish with silver flakes. Regrettably, the base is rather thick so the flakes get covered by the base. It looks so lovely in its bottle, because much of the silver flakes has stuck to the inside. It has such potential, and now all I want to do is get …
