Finally, as promised, here are some of the swatches of my latest nail polish haul (with the exception of the MAC one). I still have some more polishes to swatch, but I really want to do this during the day so my photos can use the benefit of natural light. However, my schedule doesn't permit me to do that most of the time. I will really try to make swatches during the day.
Love this color that was created with Mary J. Blige. I was a little surprised that this wasn't as flamboyant as Ms. Blige sometimes is, but I am not complaining. This is a beautiful light milk chocolate with bronzey shimmer that can be used at any occasion.
I was a little iffy about this color but it turned out to be such a beautiful shade. Love how clean it looks on the nails.
I have several holos and this is a pretty one, and reminds me of my China Glaze holo in Tickle My Triangle (don't you just love the name?). This is a pretty mauvey-pink color with lots of bling-bling, so if you like glitz, this is for you.
I am in love with China Glaze's Rodeo Diva collection, and Golden Spurs is one of my favorites from that line. Yellow gold shimmer on my nails makes my nails and hands look sick, but this one doesn't because the gold is infused with a warm bronze.
I swear, this is SO much prettier in real life. I love the dark brown-bronze-copper nuances, and it looks so classy.
The phenomenal star of the Rodeo Diva collection. Everybody has gushed about how gorgeous the black with gold iridescence is. Absolutely beautiful.
Finally, here is MAC's Whirlwind, a widely acclaimed, highly coveted limited edition nail lacquer that is hard to find. The reason nail polish addicts are going ga-ga about this is that it is one of the prettiest teal polishes ever, especially when it's under natural light. It's very beautiful and makes the hands look clean and fair. Too bad I am not into blue/teal polishes on the fingers, but would totally use this on the toes.
Which are your faves? Mine would be the Lippmanns, Opulence, and all the Rodeo Divas I have. Haha, I actually enumerated everything I swatched in this entry (except Wildfire), but those are my favorites among my newest polish hauls. China Glaze really has a winner collection in Rodeo Diva.
