China Glaze Fancy Pants Swatch

Fancy Pants is from the Avant Garden Collection.  It’s a blurple with fine pink shimmer.  The shimmer is more noticeable in the bottle than on the nail, but it’s still a gorgeous color.  With a smooth formula and no streaking, two coats was enough to be completely opaque.

Sally Hansen Golden Conduct Swatch

Magnetic polish has been such a big trend in the last year.  I didn’t jump at the chance to try it because it sounded too time consuming. Golden Conduct was on clearance at Target for $2, so I decided to buy it.  If I didn’t like it, I was only out 2 bucks.  Well I am definitely pleasantly surprised.  The color is an antique copper and becomes slightly more golden after the magnet is applied.  The magnet creates a wave pattern.  The picture below shows two coats.

Pure Ice Rio Reswatch

Pure Ice Rio is a very sheer pink jelly with purple undertones and blue micro glitter.  Four thin coats resembles the look of Butter London’s Disco Biscuit.  It’s formula is a bit sticky even after it dries, so I recommend a top coat.

Chanel Taboo Swatch

Taboo is from the Revelation de Chanel Collection.  I couldn’t keep my eyes off of this every time I saw a swatch of it online. I have never wanted a Chanel polish so badly! But $30! Crazy, I know…. But I dare say this is worth it! I wandered into Nordstrom to try it on, trying to talk myself out of it. But with just one coat, I knew this was going to be my first Chanel polish. I can’t believe this is a one coat polish, but it is. All the pictures below are with one coat.  Taboo is hard to describe, but I’ve heard it called ‘galaxy in a bottle’.  It shifts from purple to maroon to blue with stunning shimmer of purple and red.  I would recommend two coats for maximum color.

OPI Spy Who Loved Me Swatch

OPI’s The Spy Who Loved Me is from the Skyfall Collection. It’s a bright red with gold shimmer.  I would describe this red as as a fire engine red.  It’s formula is typical OPI, smooth and easy.  Put two coats on and it’s a stunner!
