Your Weekly Dose of Random LTHP Swatches!

Happy Sunday! 

Anyone else sad about the Olympics coming to a close today? I kinda am :(. Anyho, I have some utterly random swatches for you guys today. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to this post other than I've had these sitting in my folders for a while so I figured I might as well share them, right?
To see close-ups just continue reading!

O.P.I Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear? Delicious Tangerine Orange jelly. Three coats. Make sure to wear a base coat with this one as it does stain!

Nails Inc- Stratford- Golden- Rose duochrome metallic. I've lost count of how many dupes there are of this color at this point. I personally Own Two and it's not even a color that really appeals to me. Two coats.

L'oreal VIP Status- An amazing deep Steel-y Blue shimmer. I really liked this color. It's a different take on a "classy" polish. Great formula, Two coats.

L'oreal Safari Chic- A beautiful muted Sage Green with a hint of smoke and shimmer. Great two coat formula.

L'oreal Greyt Expectations - Your standard Greige Putty creme tone. Colors like these never get old for me. Great palette cleanser, two coats.

China Glaze Liquid Crystal over Zoya Natty: Blurry shot to show the insane sparkle. I only bought Two polishes from this CG collection and they were total impulse buys. These really didn't blow me away like I was expecting and they are impossible to capture in photos. Layered it does look prettier than by itself.
Liquid Crystal is a Blue Based/ Purple duocrhome micro glitter base with multi clored small hexes thrown in. The effect is kinda cool and in the picture below you can kind of see the color shift. Overall I still feel very "meh" about these glitters.

Barielle Pink Diamond- Small light Pink glitter suspended in a clear base. Very densely packed, I only did one coat of glitter over my base color, Zoya Toni. This glitter has a very nice spread. I wish it was more Pink.
And that will do it for this week's Sunday Spam post! Tomorrow Zoya Week starts so I hope you guys will stop by for that!

Happy Sunday!

  2. I agree, it is sad the Olympics is ending- I think this is the first year I didn't watch all the track events, which for someone who ran for almost ten years is surprising. I hope to do better next time around. Lovely swatches as always- it's great to see someone with shorter nails rock them so well.

  3. Yes, it is a shame the Olympics is ending, I barely got to watch the track and field events, and as a person who ran track for at least ten years, it's saying something. Oh well, I'll do better next time :) great swatches as always, and I love your nails- it's nice to see someone with shorter nails have nails that still look amazing.
