Hey guys! I've got a little afternoon snack for you today -- Pretty and Polished swatches! These aren't a part of any collection (I don't think anyway...) but all came out around the same time.
Heist is a micro gold flakie topcoat. I've shown one coat of it here over MAC Hyper. It's subtle and lovely, a perfect way to add a little refined bling without going over the top.
Clouds In My Coffee is a brown shimmery base with medium and small blue hex glitters. This shows three coats. The larger glitters in this polish had curled a bit by the time I got to swatching them. I have pretty curved nails though, it might be less of a problem if your nails are flatter. You could also put in a bit of extra effort and flip all of the larger glitters so they followed your nail's natural curve.
Mardi Party is a rainbow explosion of medium hexes and shredded pieces. This is one coat plus spot filling over black. It's a lot of fun and I love the fact that it is in a clear base. It has a lot of versatility that way. I bet it would look awesome over a nude polish...
Power Cosmic is a mix of orange, green, and blue glitters in a gray jelly base. This is three coats of it alone, though I bet it would also look great if you just put one coat over a dark creme base. I absolutely love the look of this one. Super beautiful for fall and nicely complex. It is a bit of a topcoat eater -- I've used two coats of Seche Vite here.
Private School is my favorite out of this bunch! It's warm grey with black and white glitter accented with lots of micro red. Chelsea's inspiration for this was an argyle sweater, and I can totally see that! I love the "buried glitter" look in this one -- the base has just the right opacity.
