Swatch watch!

Hello, lovelies!
I've been doing some swatching lately and I'm so impressed with most of the colors so far.
Unfortunately, I chipped a nail, forcing me to trim down the rest. :(

Here are some swatches before the trim down!
This is three coats of Color Club Holiday Splendor with OTD top coat.
This is absolutely beautiful, but it takes a lot of shaking up or else it doesn't apply too well. 
Everything about this polish is lovely, the color and the glitters. This picture doesn't do it justice at all.

This is one coat of China Glaze Foie Gras and one coat of Luxe and Lush with no top coat.
I was really happy to see this polish was a one coater. I am a little disappointed that it looks so similar to Street Chic, however. Nonetheless, it's a lovely brown and great for fall.
I'm very much impressed with Luxe and Lush as well. The flakes are so beautiful!

This is one coat of China Glaze Foie Gras and one coat of Luxe and Lush with BK Super Matte top coat.
Once again, I'm loving using this matte top coat. It's so fun to experiment with!
Which do you prefer, the matte or shine?

And now, after the trim!
This is one coat of China Glaze Brownstone with no top coat.
I was worried about this polish looking too brown and dull, however it surprised me. I really like the color of it and I think it suits the season quite well. It has a nice shine, even without a top coat.

 This is one coat of China Glaze Let's Groove with no top coat.
I am love-love-loving this polish. It is so gorgeous and it's a one-coater as well with great shine. I didn't have any polish like this before now and I am so pleased with it. It has beautiful micro shimmers throughout it that show up so lovely in light. I fell in love with it when I first used it on my galaxy nails.

  6. Great swatches! I like Foie Gras + Luxe & Lush both matte and glossy. I kind of like the matte version better!
