ORLY - Space Cadet
i have no idea why it took me this long to swatch this but holy mama this polish could be a sports event all on its own—
"And she shifts! AAAND SHE TURNS AGAIN! Look at her dodge that light! Her colours are moving so fast! She shimmers, she sparkles, SHE SCORES!!! *crowd goes wild*"
im not crazy i promise
maybe just a lil bit
OPI - 4 In The Morning
HOLD ME BACK GUYS. THIS POLISH IS TOO SEXY TO BE LEFT ALONE. ALSO I’M PRETTY SURE THIS WAS JUST ONE COAT. ONE. COAT. CAPS LOCK DOESN’T CONVEY MY FULL LOVE.
My Ten Friends - Pew! Pew! Pew!
HI THERE DO YOU SEE THAT ALMOST HIDDEN GREEN MICROSHIMMER? I DO, AND IT’S GLORIOUS.
3 coats by itself! potentially a thin 4th.
My Ten Friends - Close Encounters
mmm polish so pretty and delicious i’d eat it if i could :>
2 coats by itself!
Lacquerhead Polish - I Believe
i had so much hope and belief in this polish :( but i dont know why its holographic goodness gets covered up so much when on the nail! i hardly ever find disappointing polishes, but this, i must say, i was pretty disappointed :’(
omigosh, i’m so excited to share this polish with you today!!
Indigo Bananas - 2% Butterscotch Ripple
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL.
index and middle are a coat each over black, while the ring and pinkie are two-three coats by itself!
BUT LOOK AT IT. JUST LOOK AT IT.
Hit Polish - U.H.F.
what did i say about her colours being so unique right? :D i’ve never seen a polish like this before! i don’t wear greys too often, but there’s no denying that this polish isn’t one of its kind.
Hit Polish - Euphoria
snagged sometime last year, i finally managed to swatch it the other day! Hit Polish is definitely rising in my favourite indie brands list; her formulas are beautiful and her colours stunning and unique!
Glitter Bunny - Blue Pill
one of the very last polishes she released before she closed her shop :( the flakes in this are gorgeous.
Dance Legend - Knight
this is such such SUCH an interesting duochrome. it doesn’t suit my skintone all that well but i LOVE it regardless!
comparison swatch of Ozotic 528 and Indigo Bananas - We Are The Music Makers!
from far, it merely looks as if their differences lie in their coverage, and it is somewhat true as their main glitters are the same. however We Are The Music Makers have more depth to it, and is tinted green. it doesn’t show over black, but you can definitely wear it on its own whereas 528 is definitely just a topper.
quick comparison between OPI - DS Extravagance and Elevation Polish - Haleakala!
i thought they could have been dupes in terms of colourwise in their bottles, but i couldn’t be more wrong (and happily so, too!)! double yays all around for double the pretty polishes :D
Haleakala is more blue-toned and has a linear holo while DS Extravagance is red-based and has a scattered holo effect!
Lynnderella LE - Berry Earthly
there wasn’t a lot of swatches of this polish so i decided i should try and contribute! :D hehehe. while i didn’t reaaally like this polish, it waaaas kinda pretty!
two coats each over itself (middle and pinky), and over black (index and ring).
Elevation Polish - Haleakala
two coats of this delicious beauty!
comparison post between a-England Merlin and Illamasqua Harsh!
they are pretty much dupes, except for their consistency.
Merlin has more coverage than Harsh does, but they both consist of the same micro silver bars! As such, Harsh is not at all that harsh against Merlin, but depending on which you prefer, you definitely don’t need both! :)
