Saturday Swatches

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm back with another flurry of Saturday Swatches. I apologize for the lack of content since the holidays, I thought things were settling down around here, but baby, sleep, molars, ai-yi-yi...

Anyway, here we go!


First we have one of my favorite neutrals, Butter London All Hail the Queen, this first picture is actually an older photo, from my reindeer nails, I didn't retake it before taking the next photo.


I've been on the hunt for the perfect neutral holo, so I decided to try holo-izing AHtQ with my holo topcoat, Girly Bits Hocus Pocus. I absolutely love the way this turned out!


Next up is a gorgeous matte glitter topper. This is Kawaii Poodle Pink. I LOVE this glitter! Look at those pink squares! This is Poodle Pink over NYC Sidewalkers.


 Seriously. Square pink glitters. Yes.



This one is Emily from Different Dimension's Pretty Little Liars Collection. Emily is TONS of matte micro-glitters in periwinkle, green, and white. This is packed! It only took two coats to get this full coverage you see here. This is similar in nature to Floam, but this is SO much easier to work with, and the colors suit me so much more.

Here's a close-up. I don't know where that one random red glitter came from, so please ignore that :p




Here is Butter London Two Fingered Salute. I have lemmed this polish for so long, and I am not happy with the pictures at all. This is a lovely green creme with copper multiglitter, but the copper just did not show through very well in the photos. I'm working on building a lightbox, and when I get that finished, I will have to re-swatch this. As with every Butter I've tried, the formula was fantastic, so smooth...well. like butter!


Here's a close-up so you can see the copper microglitter a bit better. Lovely, no?

And there you have it, happy Saturday, I hope you've enjoyed the swatches!
Til next time!

    1. I love the AHtQ + Hocus Pocus Manu, there is something fabulous about a nude holo, and you don't see them very often at all!
