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 …

What I got and what I wore for Christmas 2014

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 …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 182 Turquoise Dust

Turquoise Dust is a very sheer, golden teal foil polish with a couple of blue small hexagon glitter particles and slightly larger (and fewer) holographic hexagons. This is four coats, and I still think I could have done better with a fifth, and no topcoat. The drying time is however very good, so the many …

Swatch of H&M – Mermaid

Okay, hold on to your socks because this polish might just knock you out of them! Mermaid is a stunning teal glitter polish, blue and green tiny hexagons in a clear base. This is two coats on a black cream with one coat of Seche Vite. The glitter payoff is fantastic, and it dries only …

Swatch of China Glaze – Meteor Shower

Happy New Year every one! This is what I’m wearing tonight, even though I’m not going out, China Glaze Meteor Shower. This is one coat of Meteor Shower on two coats of OPI Eurso Euro and one coat of Seche Vite. This polish is a blurple based glitter polish with opalescent hexagons in two different …

Quick comparison of OPI – Magazine Cover Mouse vs The Impossible

Here’s a quick comparison between Magazine Cover Mouse and The Impossible. Magazine Cover Mouse is a cooler red, like a hibiscus red, and The Impossible is more of a coral red. The bases are vastly different, but you can only really see it when you look at them next to each other in back lighting …

Swatch of NYX – NPS217 Dark Glitter

Dark Glitter is a red glitter polish in a black jelly base. The glitter particles are bright red hexagons in two different sizes. I tried wearing this on its own, but ended up with four sticky coats that weren’t opaque so I decided to layer it over black underwear instead. I should probably have done …

Swatch of NYX – NPS210 Blue Glitter

Blue Glitter has a pale, extremely sheer blue base and thin, opalescent hexagon shaped glitter particles in different colors. I’m wearing one coat over Nina Ultra Pro – Sailor, because this polish is so sheer you won’t be able to get it opaque, and I don’t think you’re even supposed to. I love the way …

Swatch of NYX – NPS208 Moonwalk

Moonwalk is a charcoal jelly based polish with hexagon shaped holographic glitter particles in two different sizes. I’m wearing one coat on black underwear in these photos, because there is no way you can build this polish up on its own to full opacity without ending up with a thick goop on your nails that …

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 Color Club – 848 Tru Passion

Tru Passion is a soft purple glitter polish with a clear base and two to three different sized glitter particles – just like Object of Envy, I find it hard to tell. I’ve paired it up with OPI – Planks a Lot, one coat of each. I’m sure you’d be able to build up the …
