Saturday Random Swatchfest 10/18/2014

Happy Swatchfest Day everyone! :)  So glad you're here with me today.  We're going to look at ten random polishes from my "untried" bin and I'll tell you what I think about it.  If you'd like to see the video review of the polishes, you can find that here:

For red, we've got Orly Merlot Mist which is a frosty warm burgundy.  Not really my favorite, I have to admit but it did apply nicely in two coats.  B

OPI All That Razz-berry is our pink polish today.  This is a lovely medium pink that feels just a tad fuchsia to me.  The application was lovely and I had no issues getting this to opacity in two coats.  A

This lovely peachy pink is our orange polish today.  For the price, you really can't beat this one.  It's Pure Ice Happy Hour and it's smooth and creamy in two coats.  This one's a perfect example of why we don't need to be paying $10 plus per bottle of nail polish!  A

For yellow we've got Spoiled Mind Your Own Beeswax which is a really sunny yellow shimmer. Unfortunately, this one doesn't become opaque enough to be worth picking up.  I wish I could report better because it's such a budget-friendly brand, but I'd say pass on this one.  B-

China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener is this very vibrant, almost neon green pastel.  This one has kind of a funny formula which isn't my favorite.  It dries fast and so you have to hope it will level out ok at two coat, but when it does, it's lovely!  A-

Sinful Colors Rain Storm is a dusty navy one-coater.  I love this one so much and I've shown you two coats here, but ya it's a great go-to for Fall, or anytime if you love blue creams like I do!  A

For purple, we're looking at Nina Ultra Pro Purple Xing.  This is a plum jelly and it is packed with holographic glitter in many different sizes.  I needed two coats for this level of opacity.  A-

Revlon Sequin is a super vibrant silver metallic or perhaps foil.  You can get away with one coat but I've shown you two.  I think this line, Colorstay, is really nice but they are being clearanced many places so you can snag them rather inexpensively.  A

For my glitter polish today, I'm showing you China Glaze Don't Be a Flake.  It's comprised of bright turquoise, black, and rose holo hex glitters in a clear base.  I've shown you two coats here and I kind of had to work with it to get them placed on the nail.  I really feel kind of meh about this one. It's only ok.  B

My A+ polish of the week is OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid.  It's an absolutely fabulous turquoise that leans green.  This is two smooth coats and I really feel like it's a must-have from the Nordic collection.

That's all I have for you today.  I hope you're well and I'll see you back next time.
