Saturday Swatch Spam

Hello again readers!

It has come to my attention that after so many makeup reviews and swatch posts, that I haven't gotten to a nail polish post in quite a while. To top it off, since I've been working on organizing my files, I have found a lot of photos just begging to be posted! So I hope you enjoy. :)


Downtown Brown is a green shimmer in a brown base. I am recently obsessed with duo-chromes, and this is pretty good. It isn't as impressive in the shade, or in fluorescent lighting, but it looks so beautiful in the sun. This requires at least three coats.

Finger Paints

It Comes Easel-y To Me is a dark violet berry creme shade. I really enjoy shades like this, and the pigmentation was wonderful. Two coats for full opacity.

Chromatic Creation is a silver holo! I was really excited for Finger Paints to be releasing a holo in their permanent line, and I was decently happy. It isn't the most impressive holo shift, it's sort of subtle, but it's there. This polish requires two coats.


Timeless Rubies is a rose polish with pink and copper shimmer. I'm not overly fond of this polish, but it applies so nicely. It applied in two coats.

Wine Stain is a deep wine, or an oxblood crelly, whichever tickles your fancy. It applies in three coats, because it's a little sheer. It is one of my fave polishes that I've bought recently, and it looks really beautiful.

Non Stop Stone is a taupe grey creme polish. It's pretty light, but it applies in two coats. I do notice that it pulls away from the tips of the nail, so you need to wrap this polish.

Amethyst is so pretty. A nice taupe with a violet shift. It's a lot like Downtown Brown, where the shift is really  only noticeable in direct lighting. It applied in 2 coats.

L.A. Colors

I bought both the gold glitter, and the multicolor glitter. They both have medium and small hex glitter suspended in a clear base. I'm really impressed with them, but I don't love them nearly as much as I love the silver. One coat each over Wet n Wild - Ebony Hates Chris.

Charlotte Russe

A nice light teal creme shade. I wasn't expecting the formula to be as nice as it was, but it was really great. Two coats for full opacity.

A light aqua creme shade. So beautiful. The first coat was a little thick, but it evens out beautifully.

A really unique hot pink large and medium hex glitters, and white bar glitter suspended in a clear base. One coat over Penny's light violet polish.


Deep Sea Baby is a super dark, blue-toned teal green crelly. It looks almost black in certain lighting. I dig it, it's murky and really beautiful. Two coats for full opacity.

Oh My Glitter! is a blue-violet with a pink shimmer. I used two coats for this swatch, but it would be better with three instead since the nail tips are still visible.

Over the Rainbow is a gorgeous is a light, blue-toned lavender with a blue shimmer. In most lighting it looks blue, but sometimes it pulls violet. A really beautiful shade for any collection. Two coats.

Space Queen is an iridescent shimmer. Love this one, and glad to have it. Swatched over Milani Ink Spot.

That's What I Mint is a standard mint creme. I cant' get enough of them, and this was a really great one. Applied in two coats with no issues.

Hard Candy

Blue Lagoon is a cobalt blue creme. I can't get enough of this sort of shade either, and it was a beautiful addition. It dries into a rubber finish, so I prefer it with a top-coat (like my pinky) and it is really intense in the best kind of way! I used two coats.

Bitty Blue is a really bright metallic blue. Two coats.


Softouch Effect 12 is a black that dries to a rubber finish. The formula isn't bad, but it's not my favorite either. Two coats.

Ceramic Effect 39 This is the third Layla Polish I've ever used, and it's by far my favorite. It's a deep grey/plum metallic polish packed with glitter. I wasn't liking it that much at first, but it's quickly growing on me. Really enjoy it. Two coats.


Masked Affair is a polish you need in your life. It doesn't look like much in the bottle, but it has such a beautiful holo on the nail. I was really impressed and blown away. Two coats.


Teal Unreal is a teal cream polish. I couldn't resist it, and it looks fantastic. Such a great color. Two coats.

Rimmel London

I Lalac You is a lilac cream polish. Two coats.

Wet n Wild

Yo Soy! is a nude creme. I love the new packaging for these polishes, they look really amazing. Applied in two coats.

Funky Fingers

Elsa is a light blue hex glitter with white medium, small, and snowflake glitter suspended in a clear base. I like the idea, but I hate the execution. In order to get any snowflakes you have to fish them out, and it's a hassle. Two coats.

Let the Beat Drop is a beautiful blue with a violet/pink shimmer shift. Breathtaking, and only needs two coats.

Glitter Explains it All is green, blue, and white hex glitter in a clear base. Clarissa Expliains it All, remember that? Nostalgia... Two coats over Let the Beat Drop.

Saved by the Glitter is a hot pink, blue, and white glitter in a clear base. Two coats over Penny's Pink Polish.

Pep Rally is such a unique glitter. It has large, medium, and small hex glitter, and bar glitter in neon shades; blue, green, violet, orange, yellow. It's really attention grabbing, and so so gorgeous. One coat.

Teen Spirit is a fushia , black, and white glitter in a clear base. It looked really unique, so I picked it up, and I was really impressed with how it looks on the nails. One coat.


 Snow Globtrotter was a polish I didn't even think twice on. It has white, and iridescent glitter in a clear base. I haven't paired it with too many polishes yet, but it looks fantastic over lighter shades. One coat.

  4 in the Morning is a black satin that's packed with silver shimmer. I'm not wild about it alone, and I pair it with a top coat. Two Coats.

I Sing in Color is the dark red crelly. I thought it'd pull darker, but in direct sunlight it's definitely a red. In some lighting it looks almost black. Two coats.

 Piggy Polish

Tic Tac Toes is a polish I picked up from clearance, and it's pretty nice. It doesn't do much on it's own, but layered over another mint shade brings out the gorgeousness of the polish. A mint base with a green shift. One coat over Orly Gumdrop.

Pure Ice

Lavan-Dare is a grey-toned lavender. It's pretty light, and can make my hands look pretty warm, so beware of that. Two coats.

Party Hard is actually darker than these pictures show... It's a dark royal blue. It can be a little streaky, and I used two coats, but three would have been better.

Moonlight is a grey taupe with blue and violet shimmer. Really impressed with this, and I think it's a must-have. I used two coats.

Thanks for reading!
