Charme Sunset


I got this beauty as part of Charme Box from the Daily Charme shop in Etsy. Definitely check them out if you are interested in cool indie nail polish, and beautiful charms for reasonable price!

This nail polish is really dense, and is packed with lots of glitters. There are at least three types of glitters that I can identify, one of which is holographic hexagonal glitter. It truly looks like the content of a treasure box. 🙂


Orly Sparkling Garbage Swatch


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!


Julep Ginger Swatch


I got Ginger through Julep’s February Maven Box and I finally got to try it.


Ginger is a sandy, holographic nail polish. I have been wanting a holographic nail polish for a while. I was kind doubtful if it would be really holographic. I haven’t tried any other holographic nail polish, or seen it in real life, so I can’t give a comparison. This nail polish is champaign-colored micro glitter shimmer when not under bright light. But you can see a light ‘rainbow’ under intense light. It doesn’t get as intensive as some of the holographic nail polish I have seen on the web, but I am very content with this pretty nail polish!

Here is an example under fluorescent light.


And here is an example under cloudy light.


And here is a photo under intense fluorescent light.


All of these photos have not been edited and is close to how it appears under different lightings!

Yup, I need to practice taking nail photos and posing for nail photos.
