Swatch Sunday – Essie Collection

Hello all! Long time no talk…it’s been a busy few weeks on our end, what with moving in and waiting for the internet to be installed etc.

I also have some sad news, which is that the majority of my nail polish collection was left at home and I won’t really be able to see my pretties until December đŸ˜¦ So much for attempting to swatch everything! However, I did bring a good enough amount with me so that I can continue doing nail art!

For now though, this is the last of the swatches (unless I buy some new pretties…which I undoubtedly will).

I present to you my collection of Essie polishes!

Swatch Sunday – Julep’s Favorite Things

Julep had a warehouse sale a couple weeks ago, and as I’ve never tried their polishes before, I jumped at the opportunity! I found a couple single colors I liked and then stumbled upon the Favorite Things 2012 Nail Color Jewelry Box, which contained all the colors I had wanted and more! It also contained two special polishes named Audrey and Charlotte, which is obviously cool for Many Manis đŸ™‚

This is going to be a very picture heavy post, so bear with me and enjoy!

Swatch Sunday – A England Collection

First stop on my personal collection tour is A England! I absolutely love everything Adina produces, and have spent countless hours drooling over polishes I’ve yet to get my hands on. Pretty much every A England polish no included in this post is near the top of my lust list.

Swatch Sunday

For my birthday, my lovely mother got me the three metallic Bond polishes released by OPI. I used Bond…James Bond and Morning, Moneypenny in previous manis, but didn’t get very good pictures of either đŸ˜¦ So I will be doing all three colors again!

We’ll start with Is That Silva?

JB - Silva 3

 

I really like the magnet that came with the polish. Most other magnetic polishes have their magnet in the cap, but this was completely separate. It has a ridge on the edge so that your nail doesn’t touch the magnet, and is very easy to squeeze with other fingers in order to achieve perfect distribution of the effect.

The holographic sparkle in this polish is incredible, and the magnet was super strong! I seriously can’t find a bad thing to say about any of the three colors, but I think this one is my absolute favorite!
