Saturday Random Swatching: 8/3/2013

Happy Saturday and welcome to the world my new baby niece and happy birthday to another special niece.  It's a great day to be born because well it's gorgeous outside and all the coolest peeps have their birthdays in August- duh! :) I have 10 more shades for you today.  Lets look at em and see who made the grade.

Red: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Cherry Red is a great basic red cream.  This brand is ever-budget friendly and so if you're looking for a cheap, smooth two-coater red cream, this would be a good choice for you.  A.

Pink: NYC Radio City Rose is a really lovely soft rose on the deeper end.  You're looking at two coats here.  Not quite as smooth maybe as some other brands, but still very nice for the price.  A-

Orange: Savina Orange Blast is a mega-watt orange neon.  You're looking at two coats and it dries matte.  this color is so crazysauce and it's not even over a white base polish.  It wasn't streaky or thin like some neons and it was seriously out-of-this-world bright like I wasn't expecting.  Definitely unique and didn't give me a Halloween vibe so it's versatile in that way.  Love it. A

Yellow: Pure Ice Show Stopper is a medium yellow cream.  This is three coats for full opacity.  This one was slightly finicky as yellow polishes can be.  I do love the color though; it's a very happy shade for me.  I do have easier-to-work-with yellows though, so I give it a B.

Green: Julep Courteney is a breath of fresh air.  This is just the perfect shade of green- cool, soft, creamy.  So lovely!  This was an easy, two-coater.  A.

Blue: Avon Forget-Me-Not-Blue is another from the glass shimmer collection and it is really interesting cuz they went with a darker base with the really gorgeous light blue and silver reflects glitter/shimmer inside.  It really adds wonderful dimension to this dark creamy blue color.  This is two coats, and Avon polishes aren't the easiest to work with, but I wouldn't call them difficult either.  They just don't glide like Zoyas is all I'm sayin'.  Love the color still though. A.

Purple: Ulta Plum Perfect is just as the name indicates- perfect!  The color is rich and delicious!  The formula is creamy and easy in two coats, and it's super glossy with no top coat.  This was the base to my coral and bubbles mani a while back.  So gorgeous!  A.

Neutral: OPI My Vampire is Buff is all over nail blogs right now because it is such a delicious neutral and off-white that it works really well for your nail art if you don't want stark white on your nails.  As most OPI creams are, it was smooth and even in two coats.  I love it and it's worth the price in my opinion.  This would be a good one to pick up if you enjoy nail art.  A.

Glitter/Texture: Pure Ice I'll Behave over Cosmetic Arts bright green is a multi-glitter polish in a clear base.  You can see that there's a lot of tiny green glitters but also some larger silver hex glitters.  This glitter is just ok for me.  It doesn't really do that much or stand out from the crowd, but it might be a real pleaser with your daughter and her friends :)  I give it a B-

Featured Polish: Sinful Colors Sail La Vie has been begging to be featured for a while now.  The thing about this polish is the bright periwinkle just glows for me, almost like a neon polish does- but this is a pastel shade so it blows my mind.  I absolutely adore this polish and it's a special release that came out with a sailing themed collection a few months back, but if you still see it in your Walgreens somewhere, don't pass it up.  You're looking at two coats for this sweet cream polish.  A+
