Butter London Fiddlesticks Swatch

Standard

The polish on my middle finger is OPI Serious Sparkle, and I will write a review on it later! But for this entry, I’m going to write about Fiddlesticks.

I think many girls know that London Butter make fantastic nail polish! I got this as a London Butter nail polish set deal from Zulily, gave some away as presents for friends, and kept some for myself. Not to sound selfish.. but I am glad that I kept this polish.

Fiddlesticks is a raspberry-glitter polish mixed with raspberry gel-polish. The finish texture is little bit rough, but can be modified with a good top coat.

Doesn’t this polish remind you of fruit preserve?

Anyway, below photo is of my nails with base coat, two coats of Fiddlesticks, and top coat. 20140101-211324.jpg

Orly Sparkling Garbage Swatch

Standard

I haven’t updated this blog for a long time, but I realized that nail blogs can be extremely helpful when one has to decide whether to buy a nail polish or not!

Let’s start with Orly’s Sparkling Garbage. I have seen pictures of this polish in Pinterest and always thought it was gorgeous. Few weeks ago, I visited T.J.Maxx and I couldn’t believe my eyes! This beauty and one another Orly nail polish were available as a duo set at the nails rack for $7!

Sparkling Garbage is lots of aqua green & silvery glitters with lots of holographic glitters. It does dry little bit bumpy, and I prefer when my nails look smooth and shine… so I applied a coat of top coat to even things out!

 

This one was, I think, taken in door. 20140101-202457.jpg

This is under sunlight (I think).20140101-202539.jpgI currently lent this to my cousin and haven’t gotten it back yet… But I hope I will get it back soon! Definitely one of the best purchase of 2013!

 

Zoya PixieDust Solange

Standard

I got to try Zoya for the first time at a friend’s nail party! Now I can say I see what the hype is about.

Solange is part of Zoya PixieDust series. This one is mostly straight up yellow glitter (really yellow!), which feels ‘textured’ and rough. In this example, I applied two coats of Essie Good to Go top coat, but it’s still kind of rough.

First one is under shade, and second one is under sunlight.

Okay, I might be making a Zoya purchase soon in the future!

China Glaze Running in Circles

Standard

Cheers to my first emerald color!

I purchased this nail polish for $5 on Amazon. Do you notice me expanding to other nail polish brands? ^^ I’m realizing I really like shiny, glittery nail polish. Running in Circles is a micro-glitter nail polish similar to Julep Cindy, except this one is a true-green. The base glitter is silver, not gold, so the glitter gives the polish a cool base, not warm, and doesn’t add extra color like Julep Cindy does (which is not bad, by the way). I am loving this nail polish because it seems so rich in color and literally glows!

This nail polish puts on super well. Here’s are photos of my nail with two coats of Running in Circles, finished with Essie Good to Go top coat, under shade, and under indoor light, respectively.
