Swatch of China Glaze – Atlantis

Hey everyone! This here was my number one unicorn for quite some time; Atlantis. I had a period when I loved everything green and blue, but then I must have grown out of it because I went back to reds and purples before long. However, regardless of your color preference, Atlantis is absolutely stunning. It’s …

Comparison of Gina Tricot Beauty – 188 Million Chances and ORLY – Space Cadet

Like I said in my previous post, Million Chances really reminded me of Space Cadet, so I decided to do a proper comparison. They look a bit different in their bottles due to the different shapes of the bottles – the light hits them in different angles. But, on the nails, it’s nearly impossible to …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 188 Million Chances

Million Chances is a beautiful shimmer polish with a very strong duochromatic effect. The base is a sheer teal, and the shimmer particles go from pink to gold to green. This is two coats on black underwear, since it’s much too sheer to wear on its own, and no top coat. Remind you of anything? …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 175 Violet Glims

Violet Glims is a warm purple shimmer polish with hints of cooler purple shimmer particles. This is three coats (but you could probably get away with two thicker coats) and no topcoat. It has a nice depth to it, I think, but the shimmer would have been even better on a slightly darker base. It …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 159 Purple Nights

Purple Nights is a dark purple shimmer polish with tiny specks of red and blue. I found it very hard to capture on photo, it really has a lot more depth to it than what the photos show. This is two coats without topcoat, it dries rather quickly but with a semi-satin finish. I just …

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 – 173 Green Mint

Green Mint is a dusty pastel green crelly polish, slightly warmer in tone than its sister Pool from last year. Green Mint isn’t a true jelly though, like Pool is, so you can get it opaque with three coats no problem. This color is also so classic for spring, and the kind of color I …

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 – 152 Minty Lavender

Minty Lavender is periwinkle blue polish with a hint of a frosty shimmer. The formula is rather thick and a bit tricky to work with, plus it needs 2-3 coats to reach full opacity which makes it dry slower than the others from Gina Tricot. My guess is the added shimmer, but I could also …

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 Gina Tricot Beauty – 167 Shimmer Fudge

Shimmer Fudge is a fantastic, slightly duochromatic polish; a deep copper with hints of a vibrant warm gold, which in certain light shifts to green. The formula is fantastic, so easy to apply, clean up and to remove. This is two coats without topcoat. Sometimes Gina Tricot just gets it so right you can’t pass …
