China Glaze Towel Boy Toy Swatch

Towel Boy Toy is a very bright blue with subtle shimmer. It is a neon but it’s not as bright as most neons. The formula is a bit thin, so three coats are definitely required to get an opaque color. Because this polish is a neon a shiny top coat is definitely required! I used […]

The Hungry Asian – Sea Creature..

Sea Creature is a mix of dark emerald micro glitter and medium blue holo hex glitters with a sprinkling of small violet glitter. I’ve seen a few random pieces of medium silver holo hexes as well in there, but they’re kinda rare. This is all in a clear base, but it covers almost completely in […]

Zoya Charla Swatch

This is Zoya Charla, and she is outstanding!  Magical!  This is sort of similar to Color Club Metamorphosis, but they are definitely not dupes of each other.  Charla has large glass flecks and a duochrome in the base that flashes green (not blue/purple like in Metamorphosis).  I love blue and teal polishes, so I am […]

Layla Hologram Effect Ocean Rush Swat..

For my base on this I tried out Essie Matte About You. I’ve heard from a lot of people that matte top coats are good bases for difficult holos. While that may be true for some holos it is not true for these Layla’s. It completely killed ALL the holo, like it just ate it […]

China Glaze Some Like It Haute Swatch

That’s why China Glaze Some Like It Haute is such a great glitter for me – it’s sparkly, with round holo glitters, but the charcoal microglitter tones it down. The holo glitters are also always obediently weather appropriate, looking muted on cloudy days and blindingly bright in the sun. This is two coats over one coat […]

Butter London Lillibet’s Jubile..

Today I have a gorgeous new Butter London polish to show you called Lillibet’s Jubilee! It’s a beautiful silvery lilac foil! According to Butter London‘s website This commemorative color honors the international celebration marking the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne. I have a lot of silvery foils but nothing quite like […]

Color Club Metamorphosis Swatch

Today I have a very pretty glass fleck polish from the Color Club Take Wing Collection to show you!  This is three coats of Color Club Metamorphosis with a top coat of NYC.  Metamorphosis is a beautiful teal with blue and green flashes, as well as a subtle purple/blue duochrome that shows up in the right […]

AquaDaisy Shazaam – Swatches an..

Shazaam is a creamy, smooth, opaque-in-one-coat, violet-based purple with a very tightly scattered holo. The application was a dream. (Think a-England Tristam/Dragon/St. George – formula and holo properties.) View full post at AquaDaisy Shazaam – Swatches and Review | Pointless Cafe

Color Club Summer 2012 Sparkle and So..

Sparkle and Soar is a beautiful golden orange! I love love love this one, for some reason I always grab for orange polishes like this during the summer. Usually I gravitate towards a couple of Zoya polishes but this might take their place! The formula was nice, a little sheer though. I used 3 coats […]

Color Club Summer 2012 Fly with Me Sw..

Fly With Me- is an awesome lime green! Ahh love, I’m a big fan of all things green and I love this yellow toned lime! The formula on this one was a little bit sheer but very nice, I used 3 coats for the photos below. View full post at The PolishAholic: Color Club Summer […]

Orly Dark Shadows Mysterious Curse Sw..

Mysterious Curse is a dark bluple with very strong blue shimmer. Look familiar? It’s pretty much a dead on dupe for another shade Orly gave us last Spring called Royal Velvet. The formula was okay, a little on the thick side and it started getting a bit goopy and hard to worth with on the […]
