Swatch of OPI – Sprung

Sprung has a sheer pinkish base and filled to the brim with coppery metallic foil flakes, and is the warmer toned sister of Warm & Fozzie, and as such it’s a perfect autumn polish! The base gives it a warmer tone that Warm & Fozzie, but as far as I can tell, the flakes are …

Muir Muir on the Wall is a dark, vampy duochromatic polish, shifting from warm purple to dark gold (to green in some lights). I was expecting a stronger duochromatic effect on the nail, since it’s fairly strong in the bottle, but it is still very, very beautiful. This is three coats and topcoat. This polish …

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? …
