Zoya – Mimi – Summer 2010 collection – Sparkle

Wednesday, 14 April, 2010

Such a gorgeous shade of PURPLE! LOVE LOVE L O V E it. I swatched the whole collection, but I have to put it up…sorry for the delay. I get waylaid by my other colors. I promise they’ll all be up soon.

This shot best represents the true color of this polish. You can see the awesome flecks of gold glitter. Very subtle, but overall makes it’s such a beautiful color when worn.

The sun washes out the color a bit, but makes the glitter pop. It’s stunning, yes? YES.

Some OPI Suedes

Two things:

1) click the thumbnail you want to see, then click the same thumbnail again after it’s taken you to another page

2) Please excuse the badly mangled cuticles and lack of moisturizing on them…OPI said don’t use a base coat, don’t use a top coat, don’t use any lotions, etc while wearing this. Blah, blah, blah. I followed it for the most part…except on a few where they said “NO BASE COATS!!!” I used one. Bite me.

For the most part, I won’t be saying anything really because the pics really do speak for themselves. 🙂

IMO, it looks best with a top coat…don’t you agree? It just makes the color so much prettier!

Again, I like it better with the top coat…it just brings out the prettiness of the color.

Hm. Jury’s out on this one for me.

Random China Glaze Swatches

Wednesday, 3 March, 2010

I found these random China Glaze swatches I had done…don’t know when, but it seems like it was a while ago. 🙂

China Glaze’s tribute to Audrey Hepburn. They made a Tiffany blue just for her. As some or most of you know, Tiffany’s holds the patent for the blue so you can only get close to replication, but not the actual blue…or green. Or whatever color it is.

Secret Peri-wink-le

Indoors, no Flash (Top) and Indoors with flash (bottom)

Oddly enough…I really liked this color. It is a true periwinkle. While this color never looks good on me in reality, in my head I say it looks fabulous and keep on wearing it. 😀

Lubu Heels

Indoors, no flash (top); Outdoors (bottom)

Not one of my favorite colors. I thought this was the ghetto cousin of Midnight In Moscow. Yea, I went there.

MAC Cosmetics, Fall 2009 – Beyond Jealous nail polish swatch

Yea, this was lovely. Indoors I was having a flashback to OPI’s Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow but I was wrong.

This polish is really, really pretty. Added bonus? It’s a creme! No shimmer, no glitter…just a pure, gorgeous green creme with wonderful application.

I thought that OPI had nailed a great dark green with HT…AT, but this…wow. This moved that right out of my way. I love how in the sun it looks almost like a grey-green thanks to a tiny dose of blue.
