Random Swatchy Spam Part 3

Hello hello!

  You guys like these random swatchy posts right? Anywho these are swatches of the colors I wore under my recent swatching session of  Color Clubs Fractured collection. I deliberately picked colors I had not worn in a while but really loved and had been wanting to re- swatch. 

I'll get started with one of my all time favorite colors. Barielle's Decadence. This stunner has the most incredible formula. It is a solid Two coater and it dries insanely fast and shiny. Not to "toot my own horn", but you see how pretty the application is? That is a clean-up free mani. That is an indicator of just how easy this formula is to manipulate. I love everything about Barielle polishes. I wish I had more in my collection. Two coats, no top coat.

This is another of my beloved baby Blues. This is the uber pretty Havana Dreams by Sephora by O.P.I. The formula for this one is a little tricky but not terrible. I love the dustiness of this soft baby Blue. It's so soft and squishy looking.  This is Three coats of color and a coat of SV.

This is O.P.I's Manicurist of Seville. This one did not photograph well at all. It is not this Reddish. It is far more Berry toned. Think of like a glass of Red wine and you have this color. It has a great, typical O.P.I two coat formula.

This is another one of my favorites. Finger Paints Aren't you Gladioulous? I loooove this color. It is a very cool tone Lavender Purple. It applies like butter and is practically opaque at One coat. I did Two to give my nails a more glassy look. Here I have Two coats of Color and a coat of SV.

This is Orly's Green with Envy. LOOOOOOVEEEE. Let me tell you about this polish, This is one of my first "official-collection" buys back from when I first started blogging. I love the formula on this baby. It is a Three coater but the formula borders on being jelly- like so it is a dream to work with. It glides like a dream and dries very quick and shiny. This is slightly Greener than the photo shows but it is very bright and beautiful. This is Three coats and no top coat.

This is the instantly recognizable Frostbite. Amazing electric Blue shimmer that packs an amazing color punch! The pigmentation on this polish is superb. After I was doing swatching I was tempted to go back and put this on again because I could not stop staring at my nails. This is Two coats, no top coat.
Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

  9. @Em- They are close in tone but they are really different. Celestial is more metallic and a little brushstrokey where Frostbite is really smooth and a little draeker.
