Saturday Random Swatchfest 1/31/2015
Hello Loves! Time for another Saturday Random Swatchfest. I hope you've been having a great day and week. Today we're going to look at ten polishes I swatched this last Saturday that came from the untried portion of my collection. As always, if you'd like to see a live application review of these polishes so you can see formula, you can do so here:
Let's look at the polishes:
First up we have two coats of OPI Just Beclaus from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday collection. This one is great and even though it didn't really look like anything special in the bottle, the formula is impeccable and I'll be pleased to wear this all year round. A
Our pink polish this week is Spoiled Cotton Mouth. This is two easy coats, and is a slightly warm medium pink. For the price(under two dollars) this is a great pink polish. A
Next up we'll look at China Glaze Elfin' Around. This is a red/orange/pink metallic that has a heavy silver base that really clings to the nails. You're looking at just one coat here and I really enjoy how easy it becomes opaque, but it does stain the nail a bit pink, which isn't as bothersome as when a blue or green stains, but nonetheless, it's a factor. B
Our yellow polish is Julep Lexie. You're looking at two coats here, and this one was not easy to get smooth on the nail. Due to its tricky application, I can't recommend this polish to you- even though it is so sunny and pretty. C
For green, we'll look at Misa Catch a Flick. This is a lovely dusty sea green cream that has an easy application. I'm showing you two coats. A
This super bright blue cream is Sinful Colors Why Not. I'm showing you two coats and it doesn't really have a superb formula, but more importantly it stained my nails. Even though this is a brilliantly bright blue, I wouldn't bother picking it up. C-
Our purple polish for this week we're looking at Nicole by OPI Back in My Gloria Days... This is three coats and I'm so in love with this gorgeous plum shimmer. I don't mind the three coats, this one's divine. A
Sally Hansen Bare It All is a lovely tan nude that reaches this level of opacity at two coats. I think it's great for the price and you'll probably be able to find this in one of the newer displays from the Xtreme Wear line at Walgreens. A
For glitter this week we're looking at China Glaze I'm a Go Glitter. This polish comes from the SURPRISE! collection and is a combination of yellow, blue, medium pink and fuchsia hex glitters in a clear base. This applies pretty well without too much dabbing needed. B
And now, for our A+ polish of the week I have Zoya Dream to show you. This may be one of my favorite polishes I've swatched in a while. It's absolutely divine. If you love polish- you need this polish. It's amazing.
Well that's it for this week. I hope you saw something you liked. Have a great week and I'll see you next Saturday :) xoxo
