Swatch Spam, baby!

(Nothing to disclose)

Hello!

Yes, it's that time again--time to clean out the vault of all the swatches that haven't yet made it to prime time, for one reason or another. So sit back, grab your coffee, and enjoy a stroll through a bevy of bold beauties. :)

  4. Love me some swatch spam! :) These are all so wonderful, but of course China Glaze's VII is the bestest -- although, other swatches show it more red-ish? (me no likey red-ish leaning purples).

    1. This capture how it looked to me on my fingers (at least on my screen it does, lol). I found it to be really, really vampy, dark purple, almost black. Not what I would see as red at all, really. But I also don't know that I'd recommend it, it was a little patchy.

    2. Um, just a thought: you sure this one isn't "VIII"? Because VII is a more maroon-ish red (or whatever; I'm awful at naming colours), while swatches of VIII show it as a dark plum (in that case, no worries, my stash is definitely not lacking it!).

      ..or maybe my display's calibrated all wrong, lol, and I just see it all differently.

    3. I just double checked, and you are right, it is VIII! Darn my eyes! Thanks for catching that--I'll go change it. >.<

  5. Oh my gosh, I love them all! The first green I think might be my favorite though!

    1. Starboard is one of my classic favs, too. :)

  6. Brownstone is so striking on you! I love Julep's Joanna! I've been looking for a grey-purple like that for so long after one of my similar nail polishes ran out!

    1. Thank you! I love reds, and the darker, vampy reds are my favs. :)

  7. i love the zoya demi best! i was gonna ask.. do you use a brush and polish and remover to clean up afterwards or do you just happen to apply clean every time. i'm trying to figure out what kind of brush to buy.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I totally cheat with a clean-up brush, lol. I do try to make it as clean as possible to start, but I don't think I've ever done a mani that didn't need some clean up. I just bought a little one at Michael's, the size of an eyeliner brush. I have a slightly bigger one that I use for cleaning up nail art that gets onto the sides of my fingers...you can see pics here: http://lacquerorleaveher.blogspot.com/2013/11/my-basic-stamping-tools.html

  8. Color Club Revolution is my fav, it reminds me of my fav Zoya shade! It's funky and glam and special, all at the same time. :)

  9. These colors remind me of FALL! :) Gorgeous! I've never tried the Zoya nail polish, but I only hear good things about it. Maybe it's time I tried it out!

    1. You know, I didn't even do that on purpose, but it does have a fall feel, doesn't it! Zoya is really great. They also have really great sales, follow them on twitter or get on their mailing list. You can regularly get them for $4 a bottle, often with free shipping. :)

    1. China Glaze was the brand that seduced me into my polish addiction, lol. I was a normal girl, about 20 different bottles of polish, and then the China Glaze Hunger Games collection came out. Let's not talk about how many bottles I have now...>.>
