All I did for this look was begin with the green base, and I used a dotting tool to create two different sized gold dots at the base of my nail. I loved how this turned out, and I am really happy with how simple it was. This one would be great for both the fall, and the holiday season.

I hope you have a great day!

China Glaze All Aboard Collection for Fall 2014 | Review & Swatches

China Glaze All Aboard (Fall 2014)2 China Glaze All Aboard Swatches China Glaze All Aboard Swatches1

Hello Everyone! Today I have the China Glaze fall collection! The All Aboard collection is full a deep tones, and rich shades.   It is a gorgeous collection, and one of the more unique fall collections I have seen this year.

Swatch - All Aboard

China Glaze All Aboard

This is a gorgeous purple crème, with a dusty grey tone. It is opaque, and even in just two coats. Most purples just don’t agree with my skin tone, but I absolutely love this one. I find the grey tone to add a really amazing colour for fall.

Swatch - Choo Choo Choose You

China Glaze I Choo-Choo Choose You

This is probably the most unique polish that I have seen from the fall collections! It is a purple base, and it is packed with a ton of bronze shimmer, that does translate onto the nail. This polish is opaque and even in just two coats, and has an overall amazing formula.

Swatch - Conduct Yourself

China Glaze Conduct Yourself

This deep oxblood, crème shade is a classic for the fall. This shade is not particularly unique, but it is a very popular shade for the fall. The formula for this polish is good, but it does have some staining once you remove it.

Swatch - Don't Get Derailed

China Glaze Don’t Get Derailed

This dusty, green crème shade is so gorgeous. I love the grey undertone that is in a lot of the colours form this collection. It really adds a wearable factor to it, that a lot of shades don’t have.

Swatch1 - Loco-Motive

China Glaze Loco-Motive

I love a good glitter anytime, and this one is gorgeous, and unique. This polish has an opaque purple base, and is packed with orange hex glitters. It is opaque in just two coats, and has an amazing formula.

Swatch - Lug Your Designer Baggage

China Glaze Lug Your Designer Baggage

This polish is a brown jelly polish with some gold flakes dispersed throughout the polish. This is an incredibly unique polish, and unlike anything I own. It is even and opaque in just two coats.

Swatch - Mind The Gap

China Glaze Mind The Gap

This is another super unique polish! I am not really even sure how to describe the colour of this polish. It is almost like a light grey/green or gold with tiny gold shimmers dispersed through the polish. It applies evenly and opaque in just two coats.

Swatch - Nice Caboose!

China Glaze Nice Caboose!

This is another fall classic, but it has a twist of some shimmer. This deep plum, has a brightness effect to it, and a light copper shimmer dispersed throughout the polish. The shimmer definitely adds uniqueness to it, which I didn’t expect when I first looked at the polish.

Swatch - One Track Mind

China Glaze One Track Mind

This is a bright, royal blue shade, and opaque in just one coat. I used two coats for good measure, but it definitely was opaque in one coat. This one also left some staining, but it was nothing that some acetone couldn’t get rid of.

Swatch - Stop That Train!

China Glaze Stop That Train!

This is another unique polish from this collection! This bright orange/red is packed with orange shimmer, and opaque in just two coats.

Swatch - Well Trained

China Glaze Well Trained

This deep, teal is another fall classic. There are a ton of shades that are similar to this, but nonetheless this one is beautiful. It was opaque and even in just two coats, and also didn’t leave any staining behind.

Swatch - What Are You A-Freight Of?

China Glaze What Are You A-Freight Of?

This is another great fall shade, but this deep purple crème has that same grey undertone I was talking about before. It is even and opaque in just two coats, and has a great formula.

Overall I loved this collection! I felt as though it was a great mix of the classic shades, and brand new unique colours that we haven’t seen before. This is probably the most unique fall collection I have seen this year, and I am really impressed with the colours China Glaze is releasing recently.

I hope you have a great day!

- Jaimie

Essie Dress To Kilt for Fall 2014 | Review & Swatches

Essie Dress to the Kilt (Fall 2014)1

Hello Everyone! Today I have swatches of the Essie Dress To Kilt Collection for fall 2014. This was a gorgeous collection, full of cult classics. All of the polishes have absolutely amazing formulas, and are overall gorgeous colours.

Essie Dress To Kilt Swatches

Swatch - Dress to Kilt

Essie Dress To Kilt

This is the classic red for the fall/winter. This one has a phenomenal formula, and I am totally in love! This polish is not unique, so if you have a few reds you probably don’t need this one. However, if you are on the hunt for a good one I would recommend this one.

Swatch - Fall In Line

Essie Fall In Line

This is a gorgeous dusty green shade. This one has a grey undertone that I find a ton of the polishes released for fall have this year! It is opaque in just one coat, but I did do two to ensure the nail line was covered.

Swatch - Partner In Crime

Essie Partner in Crime

This is a gorgeous hot cocoa crème shade. A gorgeous fall shade, but nothing we haven’t seen before. It has an amazing formula like the rest of the colours in this collection.

Swatch - Style Cartel

Essie Style Cartel

This was the talk of the collection this year. It is super gorgeous, and another great formula. This bright cobalt blue is an amazing way to switch it up for fall.

Swatch - Take It Outside

Essie Take It Outside

This polish was the one that surprised me the most from this collection. This light grey crème is gorgeous, and just turned out really nicely!

Swatch - The Perfect Cover Up

Essie The Perfect Cover Up

This is a gorgeous teal crème shade, with a hint of green to it. It is opaque and even in just two coats. This is another fall classic, and would go amazing on most skin tones.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with this collection. I thought it had some gorgeous colours, and a few fall classic shades. If you are all about the classic fall shades, and great formulas you should check out the colours from this collection.

I hope you have a great day!

- Jaimie

Zoya Ignite for Fall 2014 | Swatches & Review

Zoya Ignite (Fall 2014)

Zoya Ignite (Fall 2014)3 Zoya Ignite Collection Swatches

 

Hello Everyone! Today I have some swatches of Zoya’s latest fall collection. Zoya Ignite is an amazing collection full of rich, jewel-tones.

Swatch - Autumn

Zoya Autumn

This is a shade that just screams fall to me. The light bronze tone reminds me of the colour of the leaves changing. This polish applied evenly and opaque in just two coats, and overall had an amazing formula.

Swatch - India

Zoya India

Next up, we have India which is a very rich, raspberry colour packed with shimmer. All of these polishes have an almost metallic finish, which I love for the fall. Again, this one has an amazing formula, and is a great polish overall.

Swatch - Remy

Zoya Remy

Can we just start off by saying how much I love the name Remy! This is a gorgeous teal shade, packed with blue shimmer. I cannot even with this one, it is amazing, and you need this one.

Swatch - Sansa

Zoya Sansa

Sansa as the same formula and finish as the rest of the polishes, but this one is purple with gold shimmer. It is opaque in just two coats and has an amazing formula like the rest of the polishes.

Swatch - Teigan

Zoya Teigan

This one is red with a ton of gold shimmer. I don’t find this polish as unique, as the rest, but it is gorgeous nonetheless.

Swatch - Yuna

Zoya Yuna

This polish is different from the rest of them. It is a green crème base, with gorgeous light golden shimmer in it! It applies evenly and opaque in just two coats, and is totally amazing!

Overall I feel like this collection is a must have. All of the shades are gorgeous, and unique to my collection. The mix of different colours of metallic, and then Yuna at the end is phenomenal.

I hope you have a great day!

China Glaze Apocalypse for Color for Halloween 2014 | Review & Swatches

China Glaze Apocolypse My Colours (Fall 2014)1

Hello Everyone! Today I have some swatches of China Glaze’s most recent Halloween collection! They always have the best colours for Halloween, and it is one of my favourite collections of the year from them!

China Glaze Apocalypse Your Color Collection

I absolutely love these colours, and they are unique, unlike anything I have ever seen before!

Swatch - But Of Corpse

China Glaze But Of Corpse

This is a gorgeous green shade with some black, matte glitters throughout the polish. This polish has a very similar formula to Deborah Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream with the gorgeous metallic base, and matte glitters through it. It has an amazing formula, applies evenly and opaque in just two coats.

Swatch - Don't Let The Dead Bite

China Glaze Don’t Let The Dead Bite

This polish is very sheer, but I applied it over a white base, and it worked very well. If you wanted a more true to colour look, you could apply it over a light pink base. It is a very sheer, jelly pink base with different sized red glitters in it. This polish was a little on the thick side, so make sure you try to apply thin coats to build up the colour.

Swatch - Getting to Gnaw You

China Glaze Getting To Gnaw You

This is an amazing polish. It has a black jelly base with a ton of copper glitter. It only took two coats to be completely opaque, and had an amazing formula.

Swatch - I Love Your Guts

China Glaze I Love Your Guts

This polish has a very similar formula to But Of Corpse, but is a pink version. It is an amazing formula, and a super unique polish!

Swatch - Rest In Pieces

China Glaze Rest In Pieces

This polish is dispensed in a clear base, with different sized copper glitters, and matte black bar and hex glitters. I applied this glitter over a white base, so you could see the different effects of the glitter. This is two coats of the polish, so it is definitely not going to be opaque on its own, but it would be a great topper.

All of these colours are amazing, and super unique. Not only are they unique, but I am loving the names of the polishes. This collection also came with the Ghoulish Glow polish, which is released every year. This is probably my favourite Halloween Collection from China Glaze in a long time, and I would definitely recommend you check it out.

I hope you have a great day!
