OPI - Tease-y Does It + Color Club - Wild and Willing

Why did I wait so long to buy this polish? It is gorgeous! Application was good. I used 3 coats but I could have used 2.

Tease-y Does It

Avec 2 coats of Color Club Wild and Willing (amazing!)

I failed a little in the cleanup as you can see on my pink if you click on the pics :\ Does not stop this shiz from being amazing!

Cover Girl - Mystic Peacock + Love & Beauty - Blue/Green

Cover Girl Mystic Peacock is a shimmery teal in a blackened base. It reminds me a bit of Barielle Blackened Bleu. It was fairly sheer but this is 3 coats which built up nicely. No topcoat.



I then added Love & Beauty Blue/Green on top (thanks Amy!)


Aaand back outdoors.

It was really hard to catch the duochrome on camera. Blue/Green is amazing! A true duochrome it is very very sheer. This is 2 coats over top of Mystic Peacock. It flashes between blue, teal/green and pink. It is gorgeous! I imagine it would look good over most dark colours. In the sun (which was incredibly fleeting on swatch day and for days to come I imagine) it is a foily awesome blue/teal. It does not get all spangly duochromey in the sun. The sun is not the best friend of duochromes I find, which is why I am ok that the fall is upon us! Holos for summer, duos for fall and Reece is a happy girl :) Pin It

China Glaze - No Name Yet

I like this one. It does not know if it wants to be blue or grey or purple.. blugreyple?

This is 3 coats with no topcoat. It was quite thin. I couldn't think of what to layer over it.. any suggestions? Pin It

Dark & Glittery! China Glaze - Meteor Shower & Skyscraper

These are both beautiful. Do love!

This is skyscraper. 3 coats? Not too chunky. No topcoat here. Sorry for my messy pics. I had been swatching a lot and there were glitter herpes everywhere.

Meteor shower. I adore you! Dark and vampy blue jelly base with many square glitters of rainbow awesomesauce. 2 coats no top. Maybe 3 coats? I should really write this down if I am not posting on the same day.

The weather blows today. Perfect for duos! Perhaps today will be a duo swatching day ;o) Pin It

OPI - Sapphire in the Snow & NOPI - Canadian Star

Sapphire in the snow is gorgeous. Moxie I lurve you! It does not look as dark as it is in these pics.

This was 2 coats with no topcoat. It makes me want Roadhouse Blues. I know they are supposed to be relatively similar. I absolutely love this polish. Smooth, creamy perfection. So deep! I cannot wait to rock out the jewel tones this fall.

Canadian Star really took the panties and twisted them though!

Here she is in full sun

She likes to skulk around in the shadows though. Look how frigging gorgeous she is in the shade!!

Canadian star is sheer. You need to layer it. Layer it over something dark and pull it into the shadows and make love to it with your eyes! Pin It

Once upon a time I went to Edmonton. It was my very first flight! Trufax!

Miss Moxie was a most gracious hostess. Here are her lovely nails!

And here are my grubby paws sporting Revlon Modern Grace & Nfu-Oh 50

Hmm it almost looks matte!

I had an amazing time and I have a lot more swatching to do with the spoils of my trip! Pin It
