Hi everyone, it's been a few days since my last post and honestly, should've posted these a while ago cause they came in the mail a while ago! In my defense I didn't get to swatch them properly till today :D
This will be quite pic heavy since it's 2 hauls worth and I purchased 3 bottles over the past couple days.
I kept the rhinestones from last time and replaced it with China Glaze's Nova polish. I love the reflective holo bits in this <3 This required 3 coats for decent coverage. I had a jolly time removing all of this on BOTH hands >.>
OMG I absolutely love this colour! This is OPI's Stranger Tides from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. This became opaque after 2 coats.
This colour is elegant and minimal but quite sheer. This is probably about 3-4 coats of OPI's Samoan Sand. Even after 4 coats you can still see my nail, but nevertheless, nice colour :)
I really like this purple! probably my most favourite shade out of the whole spectrum of purple. This is China Glaze's Grape Pop and in the pic I've only used one coat because after swatching several other colours, I got lazy. Needless to say after 2 coats, this would be opaque.
I bought this 2 days ago and hadn't originally chosen this colour but my brother picked it up and said that it was a nice green and I figure it is too, so I bought it haha. This is 2 coats of Orly's Green Apple. Formula is thinner than China Glaze so I needed to apply a third coat on specific areas that I kinda balded on my nail haha
This colour is very nice, it's a grey-blue with tiny shimmer particles. I hadn't noticed these had shimmer particles when I purchased it but nonetheless, it's a very pretty colour and the shimmer is very subtle. This is 2 coats of China Glaze's Sea Spray.
This colour is so pretty! Like Sea Spray, this also has shimmer particles (from the same collection). Goes opaque on 2 coats and complements my skin nicely!
This was a lot different to what the online pics showed when I researched it. I was expecting a light green-blue but turns out it was like grass green! That was okay since I don't really have a green in my collection. This is 2 coats of China Glaze's Four Leaf Clover. I photoshopped the pic cause when I took the pic, it came out exactly the same as the pics online. This is more of a closer colour indication imo.
Same reaction towards this colour, in reference pics this looked like a light blue! In this case it wasn't. This is a teal-like colour, probably a few shades darker than CGs 'For Audrey' imo. This is 2 coats of China Glaze's Flyin' High. This has also been photoshopped to correct the colour. Similar but not exactly the same!
As much as I loved this colour (in the bottle), I was kinda angst about buying this colour since I thought it'd look absolutely tacky on my hands. I decided to buy it anyway since it was cheap and the result isn't too bad! This is 2 coats of BYS's Army Chic. Will drag/bald if you brush over the same place twice, so I had to do 3 simple strokes and just leave it no matter how it looked and repeat.
Alright, not as 'picture heavy' as I might've thought, but oh wells! I think it's time to paint something new and simple on my nails since I haven't done them nicely for about a week now (very reluctant to take the rhinestones off!). Keep reading to find out what I do next :)
