Saturday Random Swatchfest 3/29/2014

Hey ya'll! Time for some random swatching!  This wasn't necessarily what I had on my nails this week, as you will suspect from the differing lengths of my nails, but some of them were on my nails this week and specifically the last polish I will share was- as it was my favorite polish of the week.  Let's get random; let's get started:
Color Club Style Icon is from the Fall 2012 In True Fashion and in my light box and under the camera lens the finish looks rather splotchy but on the nail this was really gorgeous.  This is two coats and applied with no problemo.  It's a deeper red so if you're in the mood to be a little siren, this might be just right for you.  A

Sinful Colors Eva So Bright is going to be perfect for Spring and especially Summer on your tips and toes. Really, really bright coral pink cream polish, you're looking at two coats and I think you can find this in the core collection at Walgreens or Walmart.  If you're not a fan of Sinful Colors yet, you should be- they have great formula for the best price out there.  A

Sephora by OPI Give Peach a Chance is a really great color in theory, but I didn't end up loving how it looked on my nails unfortunately.  I do really like the color though, it's pretty to look at, but I didn't wear it very long.  I need to try some Spring nail art with it and see how that goes.  This is two coats and took a little work to even out, but I got it to work in the end.  I give it a B-

Ooh, I love OPI Sand on Your Own Feet and I was wearing it in the March Polish Haul video I posted yesterday.  This is two coats, but you can even get away with one.  This comes from the Spring 2012 Too Haute to Handle collection and it's a perfect formula for a light gold, delicate metallic.  Love it.  I think I found it at a Marshalls.  A

Revlon Colorstay Bonsai is a really fun color.  As you can see, it's this lime green with gold shimmer running throughout.  This really brings a lot of depth and play to this color and I was so surprised that it was on red tag clearance at CVS.  Loove it.  You're looking at two coats.  A

Pure Ice In the Mood is a little polish I picked up forever ago and its just finally making its way to my swatchfest.  It's a great light blue shimmer that has so much silver shimmer in it that it almost looks like glass fleck to me.  This one was still a bit sheer after two coats so you might want a third.  I did still like it though for the price.  B+

China Glaze Lotus Begin is so gorgeous and comes at you from the City Flourish 2014 collection.  This is two coats, and is the medium purple of the collection- not the darkest, not the lightest.  I love purples so much, and this one is just such a luminescent pastel purple.  One of my favs from the collection.  This is two coats, and while it doesn't have the perfect cream formula, I think it's worth it.  A

Fingerpaints Snow Crystals is a fabulously-blinged textured polish.  As you can see it's packed with silver shimmer and even some pieces of silver glitter.  It's like a chandelier in a bottle I love it!  This was runner up for my polish of the week and this is two coats.  I found this in the clearance bin at Sally's- it may still be there if you take a look!  A

Orly Gravity Bound is one of the six polishes in the Galaxy FX collection that released earlier this year.  As you can see- it's a blackened base that suspends the micro blue, and larger purple glitters, with large white hexes as well. I really enjoyed all of these glitters, even though I'm not much of a glitter lover- at least compared to other finishes.  I think these are being clearanced out at Sally's so you might wanna go check. This is two coats.  A-

For my A+ polish of the week, I give you Sally Hansen Complete Salon Formula Pique Side.  I picked this little baby up with some extra bucks rewards and I just love how softly shimmering this dusty sea green is.  The formula is perfection of course(Sally Complete Salon Formula is a dream to apply- but it is pricier for drug store).  This is two coats.

That's it- all 10!  Did you find anything you like?  What have you been wearing on your nails this week?  Maybe pull out a bottle you haven't played with in a while, or take a walk on the wild side with a neon orange??  Lots of love to you all and I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
