Zoya Cassedy

 Hey guys! Today I've got swatches of a beautiful metallic polish to show you!

Two coats of Cassedy by Zoya.
One of those fancy hand poses, lol.

Zoya describes this polish as a full-coverage, celestial pewter metallic; I think that's pretty accurate.
I picked it up from Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago and it's stunning!
I always have high hopes for Zoya's metallic polishes because they seem to do those best in my opinion, and this one doesn't disappoint.
It has a pretty good formula; It only needed two coats and wasn't streaky at all, like some metallic polishes tend to be.
Another lovely metallic polish!

Thanks for reading! Xoxo

Sephora Formula X Vortex

Hello, everyone! Today I have swatches of a lovely textured polish to show you.

Two coats of Sephora Formula X Vortex.

Fancy shot, lol.
I love textured polishes...

Vortex by Formula X for Sephora is a textured cobalt blue with metallic golden flecks of shimmer.
The formula is quite thick but still easy to work with; it was almost fully opaque in one coat, and I can't forget to mention that is dries very fast.
Aside from its beautiful color, finish, and formula, I don't really know what else to say about it!
It's just an awesome textured polish. I love it.

Thanks for reading! Xoxo

L'oreal Masked Affair

Hi, everyone! Today I have swatches of a legendary nail polish I haven't worn in over a year!

Two coats of the legendary Masked Affair by L'oreal.

So pretty. ♥_♥

Masked Affair by L'oreal is a scattered holographic gray with slight purple undertones.
This polish has such a nice formula and only needed two easy coats to become fully opaque.
I love this polish, and I think it's very easy to see why it was so popular; It's just an all around awesome nail polish in every aspect.
Unfortunately, this nail polish was limited edition and is now very hard to find.
So sad. :( It was such an awesome polish!

Thanks for reading. Xoxo

Wet n Wild Lay Out in Lavender & Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy

Hello, everyone! Today I have a springy manicure that I did a few months ago to share with you!

I'm pretty sure this was two coats of Wet n Wild Lay Out in Lavender, & three coats of Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy.

Yeah that seems right...

The main problem with posting old photos of manicures is that you tend to forget what you did. Haha.
I'm really trying to remember if I used two coats of the Lay Out in Lavender, or three... I'm pretty confident it was just two, and I know for sure that I used three coats of Sugarplum Fairy!
Anyways, Lay Out in Lavender is a nice, simple lavender cream, and Color Club Sugarplum Fairy is a light purple-based holographic glitter.
Lighter, more pastel colors can sometimes be difficult to work with, but I'm happy to say that Lay Out in Lavender is totally not like that! It has a very creamy, easy to work with formula, and Sugarplum Fairy has a pretty nice formula, too; It dries very fast and is very opaque, as you can see. My only complaint is that it's one of those top coat eating glitter polishes! I'm sure I had to apply like three layers of top coat, and it's still not really shiny.
But yeah, I love these two polishes, on their own and together.
I'd have to say Sugarplum Fairy is an all time favorite glitter polish of mine, and Lay Out in Lavender is one of my all time favorite pastel polishes, as well.

Morgan Taylor Sweetest Thing

Hello there.
Today, I have swatches of a Morgan Taylor polish to share with you.

Three coats of Morgan Taylor Sweetest Thing.

It's definitely on the sheer side...

Look at those bald patches, haha.

Sweetest Thing by Morgan Taylor has rosy-pink glitter with holographic glitter sprinkled throughout it in a clear base.
As you can see in the photos, it's a bit sheer to wear by itself (see the bald spots?)
It's one of those polishes that are a bit too sheer to be worn alone, but too opaque to be layered over nail art without smothering it.
Overall, I really like this glitter polish; it has a very easy to work with, fast drying formula.
I'm noticing Morgan Taylor's polishes have really good formulas, and they have a pretty broad color selection to choose from; I'm certainly becoming a fan.

Thanks for reading! ^_^

Kiko Pistachio

Hello, everyone! It's been awhile... I'm sorry I keep disappearing at random for like, two weeks at a time.
I swear I don't do it on purpose!
It's just that I think I haven't posted in like two or three days, and then I check and it says I haven't posted in two weeks, and I'm like, what!?
The year has been going by so fast for me! I can't believe we're past half of the year already!
Anyways, today I have a Kiko polish (which I don't really like that much) to share with you! ^_^

Two coats of Kiko Pistachio. >_>

Kiko Pistachio is a pastel green polish with sprinkles of dark green, & orange glitters, and as you can see, it dries with a textured finish as well.
It's not a terrible looking polish, but I just don't think it looks good on me.
The formula being a bit patchy and difficult to work with doesn't help anything either.
Overall, I don't like this polish, unfortunately. :(
But even though I don't like it, I thought I'd share anyways because someone else might love polishes like this!

Thanks for reading!

Sinful Colors Surreally Sweet

Hello, everyone! Today I have a swatch of another textured polish from the Sinful Colors Live in Color Land collection to show you!

Two coats of Sinful Colors Surreally Sweet.

Surreally Sweet is a textured deep magenta with pink & bluish-purple micro glitter.
It was a very easy two coater, and like most textured polishes, it dried fast.
Although this polish is really pretty, it's still my least favorite textured polish that I've tried, so far from the Live In Color Land collection.
It's just not as pretty as the others in my opinion...

Thanks for reading!
