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 …

Comparison of the yellow Gina Tricot Beauties – 92 Must Have, 17 Aspen Gold, 131 Lemon & 63 Sunny

Here’s a quick comparison between the yellow Gina Tricot Beauty nail polishes. They are all quite similar in formula, and they all need three coats to reach full opacity with the exception of 92 Must Have which is opaque with two. Här är en snabb jämförelse mellan de gula Gina Tricot Beauty-lacken. De är alla …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 131 Lemon

Lemon is a soft pale yellow cream polish, but not quite pastel. It’s rather milky and needs at least three coats to reach full opacity but even then I can still see some bald spots in this photo. It has a slight greenish undertone which isn’t really working that well with my skin tone, so …

Swatch of Nordic Cap – 18

18 is a bright yellow crelly polish, and I hope I got a dud bottle because it was rather thick and tacky. This is two coats because I couldn’t bring myself to add a third coat due to the stickiness. I hope some thinner can sort this one out, but I hate having to use …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 418 Sunny Yellow

418 Sunny Yellow is a soft pale yellow cream polish, bordering on pastel. Three coats to reach full opacity, easy cleanup and removal. This polish is also part of the first five, and seeing as it’s half empty, I have used it quite often. I remember wearing it to the climbing gym I used to …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 92 Must Have

Anyway, it is a very well behaved polish (two coats, easy cleanup), even if it’s probably rather difficult to wear for most people. I think however that …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 17 Aspen Gold

Aspen Gold is a nice warm bright yellow cream polish, and a relaunch from Gina Tricot. I missed picking this one up when they first released it so I’m really happy they decided to take it back in. It’s a perfect yellow polish, it covers nicely with two-three coats and dries fairly quick. Cleanup was …

Swatches of LAKA – 84, 78, 149, 76 & 89

Don’t they look yummy? Perfect shades for spring and summer, and even if they’re not perfectly unique, they are perfectly wonderful. They are quite different from one another in formula, which I have to admit was unexpected. And it is such a shame that they don’t have names, only numbers. The drying time on these …
