Happy Saturday! I have lots of swatches to show you today, I have been stashing the pictures for a couple weeks :) So let's get right to it :D
This is 2 coats of Bondi NYPD that I received in the very first month of their subscription boxes. Honestly, I could have got away with only ONE coat, but I put the second on for good measure! The formula of this polish is PERFECTION!! That is the only way I can describe it! I also love the brush of this polish. It applied so smoothly and evenly. The colour is a touch darker in person, but it's absolutely gorgeous and will definitely be a go-to blue polish for me :D You can sign up for the Bondi subscription box here. So far I have been nothing but pleased with Bondi :D
This is 2 coats of China Glaze Naked. This is a PERFECT Barbie pink! It's shimmery and girly, and perfect for any occasion! The application was really easy with this polish. This is the second time I have worn this polish and I fell head over heels for it when I put it on again :D (The first time I wore it was with this mani.) I highly recommend this polish for anyone who is looking for "that perfect pink"!
This is 2 coats of Gel II Deep Ocean gel polish. I put this polish on so that my polish and nails would survive a weekend of camping for the Canadian Civic Day long weekend at the beginning of August. I put it on the Thursday before we left, and unfortunately it was starting to chip and peel by Sunday afternoon. Keep in mind that I was camping in a tent, and not staying at the Hilton, so we were living pretty ruggedly for the weekend. Normally the Gel II polishes last at least a week for me, if not longer. I usually get bored with the colour before it needs to be changed :) I did notice with this colour that you can really see the VNL through the polish. I wonder if doing 3 coats of the gel colour before applying the top coat would help with this??
This is 2 coats of Julie G Tangerine Dream. I LOOOOOVE textured polishes. I honestly didn't think that I would, I thought they would be too weird for me but I actually can't get enough of them! The polishes from the Julie G Gumdrops collections are my ideal textured polish though because the grit is very fine and SUPER sparkly! I can't stop looking at my nails when I have these on! The formula was perfect for this colour and the picture above shows my nails with NO clean-up :)
This is 2 coats of OPI Suze & the 7 Düssledorfs. This polish is a touch more red in person, but it's still really pretty! Purple is one of those colours that all cameras hate to capture properly :( This polish has a beautiful shimmer through it that flashes indigo and blue. If you are a purple lover (like me) I recommend you try this one out! The formula was great and really easy to work with :D
And there you have it for this edition of Swatch-It-Up-Saturday. I will try to be more constant with my posting. Things are starting to slow down for me with summer soon coming to a close. Moan and groan if you want, it's happening, and the snow will be here before you know it (thank goodness!) :)
