swatches, nails, bottles oh my!!!

So it was a dark and windy night..... whoops wrong story! Well its true but not exactly what you want to hear about. It has been nice and cold in Illinois recently no Indian Summer for us. I worry what winter holds weather wise polish wise i've got lots of plans. On to our swatches and a guest set of nails.
Borghese- Campanula Bell Flower - Middle Finger Alot lighter than I expected this is 4 coats. nice color though. Sort of a lilac.

Nicole - Fanatical Fuchsia -Index Finger Pink/purple 2-3 coats

OPI - Miami Beet -Thumb More purple and deeper in person 2- 3 coats

On to our guest nails that you will be seing alot more of these are my mom Sylvia's nails. She is my favorite nail client minimal bitching and she lets me do pretty much anything as long as it looks good. So this is China Glaze Free Love with Color club nail art Black Glitter. I really like Free Love good formula nice color a great fall shade. I put a little spider web on the middle fingers. I was going to get more in depth and do a spider too but she was getting tired of sitting so maybe another time.

I also have another look on our guest nails- These are those Fall Promo colors from massini I love them they are great polishes. The brown rust orange color is a duro chrome it reflects such awesome color. The purple one is glitter amazing the color is a wonderful fall/ winter shade. If you have availability to get these grab em up. i have only heard of them at meijers. If anyone ever finds these elsewhere or wants a bottle and cant find them anywhere let me know I will gladly pick one up for you. All I ask is ya pay for it and shipping and it will be done.

Then we have China Glaze Fortune Teller. Amazing color I know by now its made the blog circuit but i've got to add my 2 cents. Also I spoke about it in my last post but these are the pics! The last 2 are with the matt top coat I was so excited I missed a couple spots but now that I know what to expect I cant wait to use the polishes again and again. Have to come up with a great halloween mani just havent figured it out yet still in the brain storming stage. Gotta work fast though its almost here.

This pic is fuzzy but I wanted to show the orange sparkle that the polish has and this is the best pic I could get to convey it.
someone on a blog said this was like lava and I agree 100% that or embers from a fire it is amazing quite the conversation starter.

These are some more swatches of my recent haul. I will re swatch sweet and earthen opal cause they are way prettier than what came out and they are not dupes they just look like it in the pictures. there were more opal polishes at big lots so i think ill have to look for some more great color just need to take some better pics.

Thumb Borghese- Solaro Sunshine 4 coats again great color but needs lots of coats

Index Sally Hanson - Earthen Opal very pretty a sparkle 3 coats

Middle Revlon Talk Dirty dark with a hint of gold 3 coats

Ring Sally Hanson -Sweet red with sparkle 3 coats

Pinky OPI Miami Beet (again just to show with other colors)

Finally we have my current mani Sinful Serena and Chloe. Awesome orange with sparkle. I love Sinful polishes and have been a fan for years. Plus at a $1.99 a bottle you can not go wrong. I do wish they would boost there formula for a quicker drying time other than that no complaints. 3 coats I love the spakle it throws.

Gizmo calling the shots from my office chair.Have a great day polish lovers and I hope you enjoy my picture heavy post.
