Warm brown flakie

Barielle Elle s Spell 2

This beauty is Barielle Elle’s Spell. A red flakie that shifts to gold and then blue/green. The flakies are suspended in a burgundy jelly base. Since the base is sheer, I decided to layer the polish over black. It is kind of a prerequisite for me to test a flakie over black since in my opinion that is when it shines.

Roasted

If you’ve been on the Bootie Babe storefront lately, you might have noticed some familiar looking nails! I spent several weeks swatching their entire polish line, which is around fifty shades. Fifty shades of Bootie Babe … now there’s your book title! Badum tss.

Anyway, I thought I’d show you my absolute favorite polishes!!

Bootie Babe Rump Roast is a deep brown with a vibrant purple shimmer.  The formula was rich and easy to apply.  I really love this one!  The purple shimmer really makes this shade stand out! Shown is two coats of Rump Roast.

Brownie

Colores de Carol Fall is in the Air is a medium brown shimmer with a subtle scattered holo.  I like this one too!  The scattered holo is a nice accent to the shimmering brown. Shown is two coats of Fall is in the Air.

Burnt caramel

Serum No 5 Love Preview 1

Serum No. 5 Love, Preview is a black base with various sizes of gold glitter. This also glows bright blue in the dark! This is such a great representation of all the gorgeous polishes Victoria makes, it’s beautiful in every kind of light and I really enjoy the glow in the dark! The formula was good, it was easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.

So Tasteful

Glamour Purse is described as an “almond taupe” which I’d say is a pretty good description however it translates slightly darker on the nail. There are quite a few colours out there which are similar but I’m still digging these shades for the cooler months! 2 coats is pictured.

KBShimmer Sand In My Stocking 1

My shade is called Sand In My Stocking and it was inspired by the beach. Specifically it was inspired by a snowman made of sand, because it doesn’t snow here :( I was going for the look of taking the sandy snowman and putting all his colors in glitter form then stuffing it into a bottle…there are also some pops of blue glitter in here to represent the ocean! Sand In My Stocking is not a typical holiday shade and it can really translate into any season depending on what you layer it with. It’s packed with small white, gold, tan, grey and brown glitter, larger gold hex and circle glitter, orange hex glitter, aqua blue circle glitter and gold holographic star glitter. Formula wise this is very glitter packed so it can be a little thick however it’s easy to apply…no dabbing required.

Brown Sugar

Contrary Polish Tiger s Eye 2

Contrary Polish Tiger’s Eye is a golden brown base with a strong golden shimmer. This is my favorite of the collection, it’s such a gorgeous brown and I don’t feel like I really have anything quite like it. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 

Cocoa

Pixi Nail Colour Classy Cocoa Swatch 2

I’ve seen good reviews of Pixi Nail Colour on the PolishAholic and Vampy Varnish, so I was eager to try it. But the price tag was a bit of a deterrent. At $8 for 7ml, it’s pricier than what I would expect to pay for a polish at Target. So I decided to splurge for one shade and picked out this gorgeous brown called Classy Cocoa.

Pixi Classy Cocoa is one of those shades that is classic, but also complex. It’s a rich cocoa brown with a warm shimmer and cool-toned/taupe undertones. It’s one of those shades that is hard to describe, but hopefully my swatches capture some of the depth of this polish.

Pahlish So Not Married! is a gorgeous blackened duochrome shimmer that shifts from dark pink to gold and is filled with gold flakies. I love the look of this polish! It is so unique and the light really catches it beautifully. Shown above is two coats. It dried to a slightly matte finish, which I really liked.

Natural

Zoya normani 

Hi guys today I have the Zoya Natural Collection to share with you all. I didn’t think I’d like this collection at first because it looked pretty boring but I ended up really liking the whole collection!

For some reason I had a hard time coming up with accurate color descriptions for these shades so I will be using Zoya’s color descriptions!

Zoya Normani, 2 coats A sauble mauve cream. So pretty although I think I may have a color or two that is very similar to this one!

Collaboration

PiCture pOlish bewitch 1

piCture pOlish Bewitch is a purple/brown back with a strong golden shimmer and a sprinkle of holo. This is a collaboration with Aire of The Obsessed, you can read her post about Bewitch here. I really like this one, it’s complex. It builds up to looking brown but it starts out looking purple…it was a surprise on the nail which was fun! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
