Zoya Wishes Collection Swatches

So I realized as i was going through my photos that I somehow forgot to post my Zoya Wishes swatches! Silly me. So here are my very late swatches. The Wishes collection was released for Winter 2014, it consists of 2 metallics, 1 creme and 3 Magical Pixies. 

The metallics have excellent formulas, they apply smooth and easy and are perfectly opaque in two coats. They are the perfect thickness, giving you excellent control so there is no flooding the cuticles or sides. 

The creme formula is a bit thinner, I required 3 coats to get it even and opaque. There was minimal flooding but you do need to be more careful with it than with the metallics. 

The Pixies were a little bit of a disappointment for me. I love the original Pixies and I love the original Magical Pixies but these jelly based ones really don't do it for me. They never get very textured, like the glitters just sink into the jelly base too much so they dry too smooth in my opinion. All of the Pixies are shown as 3 coats 

So let's get on with the swatches...

Zoya Naturel Satin Swatches

Hello all! I hope everyone is well and ready for some beautiful Zoya swatches! Today I have the Naturel Satins. Now I know a lot of mixed feeling have been had about these but I honestly think they are great! They all had lovely application and each of them complimented my skin tone perfectly. I think they would all look fabulous on anyone really! 
I have each shade shown as 2 coats no top coat. They all dry down to a semi-matte "Satin" finish and have a slight egg shell like texture. They are nice and thick, but not to much, so you have great control with application to reduce flooding of the cuticles and sides. Dry time seemed pretty excellent as well.

SinfulColors: Flirt With Hearts, partial collection swatches

Hello all! I have a few of the SinfulColors Valentines Day shades to show you today. The "Flirt With Hearts" collection consists of 8 shades, most of which are usually available all year long, as far as I know Decadent and Love Sprinkles (which I will be showing you) are the only new ones to the bunch. These few that I'm showing today are ones I didn't already have in my collection. Like I've said before, it's hard for me to find new ones sometimes since I have sooooo many Sinfuls! What can I say? I'm a sucker for their polishes!

Chirality: El Amor De Mi Vida Colección (The Love of My Life Collection)

Hello loves! Today I have a new to me Indie brand, though they have been around for as long as I can remember blogging. This collection is a Spanish themed VDay collection that consists of 5 holographic polishes. 

They all have excellent formulas, opaque in just 2 smooth and perfect coats. There was no dragging or balding and they were all self leveling. The formulas are in the medium-thick range, perfect for good application control: no flooding the cuticle or sides of the nail. I have all five shown in this post with no top coat, I ran out of my HK Girl and my NPB Digital Flash and didn't want to dull the holo with any of the other top coats I have. 

These photos were taken in my light box using daylight bulbs except for every 3rd photo for each  polish, those were taken without filtered light under my Ottlite to show the holo better. So let's take a look...

Hello everyone! Today I have a review of some items I was sent from Live Love Polisha new online nail polish shop with great brands (both indie and mainstream) from all over the world! Today's post will be about the well known brand Seche. I know most of you know and love Seche's fast drying top coat Seche Vite, but did you know that Seche also has a line of beautiful lacquers as well? I have seen them before but just haven't gotten around to trying them out, so I was thrilled when I was asked to review one for you all. So let's jump into it, shall we?
