Morgan Taylor Summer 2021 Feel the Vibes Collection

Image
  Hello folks I'm back with the conclusion to the two-part mini blog-a-thon. This one is for the Morgan Taylor summer 2021 Feel the Vibes collection. I ordered these polishes, along with the entire China Glaze summer 2021 Havana Nights set, on Polish Pick on Saturday and they arrived with today's mail. The polishes and the swatch photos match up more closely than the other ones did, so I'm just going to go with the original description. Ready? Here we go. All Day, All Night This is a beautiful berry pink with tons of silver shimmer. This polish was perfectly opaque ON THE FIRST COAT, though I did a second coat just in case. In the Lime-Light A bright lime green creme. This one was two coats for opacity. It's My Moment A light peachy coral neon creme. This one was three coats for opacity. Keepin' it Cool A slightly warm, cornflower blue with tons of silver flakies, shown cooler in this photo. This took two coats for opacity. Orange Crush Blush A coral neon creme, sho

China Glaze Summer 2021 Havana Nights Collection

  Well, hello again and welcome back! Today I have six polishes from China Glaze's Summer 2021 Havana Nights collection to share, along with six swatches. These are all neon polishes, so none of these pictures looks anything like the polishes I swatched on my nails. ( Thanks, stupid camera freakout ) Therefore, the description I give will not match what's shown in the pictures.  Here we go, everyone. Cuba Diving A balanced turquoise/aqua neon creme. This picture is bluer and cooler than the actual nail polish. This took three coats for opacity. Guava Mama A warm neon pink creme, though this picture shows it as cooler. This was three coats for opacity. Head to Moji-Toes A cool, bright emerald green, but you wouldn't know it from this picture. This one took two coats for opacity. Left My Heart in Havana A slightly dusty, deeper medium purple creme, though this one shows lighter and brighter. This one was three coats for opacity. Takes Two to Mango A bright orange neon loaded

My Second (and probably last) Nubar Polishes: Nubar Prism Collection 2009

Image
  Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today's new post is about the Nubar Prisms collection of 2009. Now, I'm not sure whether this was intended as a holiday collection or a fall collection or what. I just know that I bought this set of eight polishes from a seller on eBay for $49.99 back last week and today I received them through the mail. I finished swatching them more than two hours ago (but not quite three), and so now I have the swatch photos for you. Being that "Prism" is in the name of this post, these polishes have micro holographic glitters in them (some more prominent than others, that's for sure). I will note this: three-quarters of the collection set required three coats for opacity. However, one "jewel" and one "prize" each were perfectly opaque in two coats. So without further ado, here are the eight shades. Absolute A baby blue base loaded with micro holographic glitters. This took three coats for opacity (and unfortunat

Misa Spring Collection 2009

  Welcome back to this blog of mine! At this point I'm just using this to document nail polish collections. This one by Misa is perhaps the oldest complete nail polish collection that I have. Most of these were perfect in two coats, except for the one that required three coats for opacity. Let me show you the swatches! Dirty, Sexy, Money A slightly soft turquoise creme. Perfect in two coats for opacity. On The Edge A bold navy blue. Perfect in two coats for opacity. Push Upon It A deep berry pink creme. Perfect in two coats for opacity. Right Here Now, No More Later A slightly softened sky blue creme. Perfect in two coats for opacity. Speed of Life A macaroni cheese orange. Perfect in three coats for opacity. Stop Rewinding, Just Fast Forward A bright, tomato red creme. Perfect in two coats for opacity. So there was the collection. I actually loved it and how just about every single color looked on me. The only bad thing about this was the original tone of the pictures: dark, dark,

My First Nubars! Nubar Get Hot Collection

Image
Well, hello again and welcome back! This is only my second post today and this time it's about my very first Nubar collection: the Nubar Get Hot collection. Now, I don't know when this collection originally came out but I do know that I ordered it from Nubar's website in March (or was it April?) of 2014. I will tell you before I show you the swatches that all three of these eight polishes required at least three coats. Some of them were perfect in the three coats, but the thicker ones could have used a fourth coat for opacity. Still, however, I stop at three coats. Okay, here they are! Hot Red A warm, spicy candy red that looks a bit textured Hot Orange A bright orange that looks either like a carrot or like orange juice Hot Yellow A bright, egg-yolk like yellow Hot Lime Green A light, bright lime green, the kind that looks like the inner flesh of the lime. This one could have used the fourth coat. Hot Green A bright lime green, this time the color of the outer skin of the

China Glaze Spring 2015 Road Trip Collection

  Hello everyone and welcome back. I have a new post for you, but the collection I'll show you today won't be new to a lot of you. It's not new for me. Meet, the China Glaze Spring 2015 Road Trip collection. (I ordered this from either Trans Design or Head 2 Toe Beauty, or one of those other places. They were $3.29 each.) All of these colors took three coats and at least half of this collection could have used one more coat for four coats opacity altogether, but I stop at three. So, let's get started. Boho Blues A light cornflower blue creme Dashboard Dreamer A baby blue with a slight bit of copper flash. You can barely see it in this swatch picture. I Brake for Colour A bright candy red creme, just missing the bar for a crelly formula License & Registration Pls A near primary blue crelly More to Explore A nearly neon, icy coral creme My Way or the Highway A near perfect turquoise creme, also an almost-crelly Pack Lightly A pinkish peach with that slight copper flas

Morgan Taylor Spring 2021 Out in the Open Collection

Image
  Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I have a wonderful collection of polishes to show you. In the post below I'll show you six nail polishes from Morgan Taylor's spring 2021 Out in the Open collection. Four of the six nail polishes (two-thirds) in the collection used two coats for full opacity, while the other two took three coats. Ready to get started? Be Free The first color in the collection (and the fifth one I swatched). A salmon pink creme with a touch of brown for grounding. It showed more vivid on camera than it does on my nails in life. This is the first of four polishes that only required two coats. Dancing in the Sunlight The second color in the collection (and the first one I swatched). A whitish-silver sparkle with a bit of a blush base. I like this one as a wash of sparkle on the first coat but this also looks good built up on its own. Removal, however, was messy because of those damned sparkles.😉 This is the first of the two polishes that needed
