Swatches of Ciaté Haute House mini collection

Hi everyone! My mother gave this cute little set to me for Christmas, and since I regrettably couldn’t get my hands on the Ciaté advent calendar this year, the Haute House set was a perfect little replacement. Overall, I’m very pleased with these polishes, the formulas are very nice, two of them are one coaters …

Swatch of MAC – Rain of Flowers

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 – You’re Such a Budapest

Yay, more summery colors! You’re Such a Budapest is such a beautiful pale purple cream polish. I LOVE pastel purples, and is probably the only non-office friendly shade I would wear in the office (haha breaking the law, breaking the law!) because it’s subtle in its colorfulness. What really surprised me, though, was the fact …

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 OPI – Every Month is Oktoberfest

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to swatch and write about this polish. Naturally you will probably find Every Month is Oktoberfest on almost every nail polish blog out there, and I’ve already shown you two dupes! And it’s so not a summer shade but I don’t care – it’s just so …

Swatches of Mavala Delicious Collection

Spring is in the air and pastels are on my nails! This collection is two years old, and I bought it as it came out. I did swatch them all back then but I thought I’d reswatch them properly because they are definitely worth it, and I didn’t really do them justice last time. You …

The red and berry red polishes are not color corrected, see below for accurate colors. My husband and I went to the Canary Islands last week, and I picked up a few polishes while we were there. This cute little travel collection from Estée Lauder I picked up at the airport on our way home. …

Swatch of OPI – Muir Muir on the Wall

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 …

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 …
