Comparison of ANNY – The Answer is Love, OPI – Every Month is Oktoberfest and IsaDora – 744 Ancient Ruby

I’ve been planning this comparison ever since my husband and I came back from our trip to the Canary Islands, but I couldn’t find the time until now. I bought the ANNY polish in Gran Canaria, and I’ve had Every Month is Oktoberfest and Ancient Ruby for quite a long time already. ANNY 047 The …

Swatch of IsaDora – 748 Peacock

Peacock is an azure blue frost polish with a slight duochromatic effect in the bottle, a hint of purple, that doesn’t show at all once applied. The formula was rather good, but slightly on the runny side, and ends up a bit streaky. This is two coats without topcoat that dried rather fast. Cleanup and …

Swatch of IsaDora – 776 Crown Jewel

Crown Jewel is a rich purple shimmer polish with hints of pink and a slight duochromatic effect in the right light. It looks much warmer toned in the bottle, due to the pinkish shimmer, but the base is such a royal dark blue it comes out a lot cooler toned on the nails. This is …

Comparison of Gina Tricot Beauty – 149 Sea Bug, IsaDora – 720 Beetle Green and KICKS – Jewel of Denial

Well, I couldn’t help but notice how similar Sea Bug was to IsaDora’s Beetle Green – a polish I praised greatly back when I bought it. I would say that Sea Bug and Beetle Green are dupes, and I threw in KICKS’ Jewel of Denial since it looked similar in the bottle. Jewel of Denial …

Swatches of IsaDora – 194 Jugend Black, 645 Deep Burgundy & 707 Hunter Green nail polish

These shades don’t really belong together, but they are three new shades in my collection that I picked up at the Christmas sale a few weeks ago. I do rather like dark shades most of the year, and although I have to admit it’s starting to get a bit much by now, these shades are …

IsaDora’s trend nails collection for fall 2012 is called Jewels of the Orient. I only bought the polishes that intrigued me, because they are astonishingly beautiful.

Comparison of Calvin Klein – Opus & IsaDora – 189 Black Rose

These polishes are also very similar in their bottles. The shape of the bottles make Black Rose look more duochromatic than Opus, and Opus looks slightly darker, but on nails they are strikingly similar. In this photo it looks like Black Rose is the darker one (and not Opus as it looks like in the …

Haul: IsaDora & Gina Tricot Beauty

More nail polish! I know it’s a lot of hauls on top of one another now, but it’s a good way for me to actually write the swatch posts in time, because I feel a bit under pressure to write them. And because it’s fun to show you guys what’s coming up, of course! So …

Comparison of W.I.P – Jubilee & IsaDora – 732 Papagayo Blue

I am a bit upset about the fact that most of the red and purple in my photos disappear as soon as I upload them on the Internet. I’ve tried finding a plug-in to WordPress that solves this problem, but no luck so far. Anyway, here’s a comparison of W.I.P Jubilee that I showed you …

Swatches of IsaDora – 719 Forest & 720 Beetle Green

Dessa två lack köpte jag i höstas men swatchade dem aldrig. Beetle Green ångrar jag att jag inte köpte fler av, för det är så otroligt vackert. Dessa tillhörde trend-kollektionen hösten 2011, och jag hoppas att få återse Beetle Green igen – jag lär köpa minst två flaskor till!
