Hi everyone! I changed my layout a little bit, what do you think?
Since I decided I need to swatch all of my (ever growing) stash, it's been a big nightmare to get organized over here! But I have a few swatches for you today!
This is Wet N Wild Spectacle. I picked this up after how much I loved Sparked (which is now my new header :)). But I was disappointed. This is much less opaque and here i used 4 coats.
You can see through much more in this picture. It applied really terribly on me. I think I might pour out some of the clear coat in in it so it becomes more opaque.
This is Essie Click It or Ticket. It is a frosty orange color that was opaque in 1 coat, but I applied 2. I think this color looked good with my skin tone but is too much of a grandma polish for me. This polish applied well and dried quickly.
This polish I am not sure of the name. I know it is an Etude House part of the LUCIDarling collection. When I bought this color online the site said it was Ruby Purple. If that name is wrong, please correct me! I'd like to know! This is 4 coats. It looks very opaque in the bottle but it didn't apply that way. It is a purple glitter with holographic hexagrams and stars. I didn't even know it had stars it in until I applied it!
Close up of the star glitter. This is definitely unlike other glitters in my collection and I'm glad I have it.
Now I have some swatches from the China Glaze Holiday Collection.
This is 2 coats of Naughty And Nice. It was a bit difficult to apply because the it tended to pool in certain areas.
It appears very very dark in the shade, almost black. But in the light you can see it's a dark burgundy.
You can see how dark it is here. I love this color though. It is very vampy.
This is 3 coats of Mrs. Claus. As soon as I saw it on Katrina's blog I knew I had to pull it out and try it!
Isn't it pretty? It has a pinkish red base with glitter than shines silver and pink. I love this color.
I think this color looks nice on my skin tone as well.
This is 2 coats of Phat Santa. I think I had mentioned before that I never really wore red polishes, but this polish I love. This is a very pretty, very opaque red.
I love how shiny it is. it looks like car paint :).
This is 2 coats of Jolly Holly. This could have been a one coater if I had applied more carefully.
This is a really pretty emerald shimmer. And I didn't have a similar color in my collection.
This is 3 coats of Party Hearty over Jolly Holly and Phat Santa. I drove everywhere to find this polish. I had seen it early on Black Friday, but passed on it because I was already getting my Zoyas. Later in the day, I stopped at a couple beauty stores looking for it- they were all out! So the next day I went back to the first store and bought it.
I was really disappointed! I couldn't get nearly as much glitter as I wanted on the nail :(.
I also took some time today to organize all my untried polish into one drawer.
I have so many to try! How about you ladies? Do you separate your untried polishes from your used? What is your system?
