Cult Nails Hypnotic Collection Swatches

Hello! Today I have swatches of the Cult Nails Hypnotic collection. I’ve read good reviews of Cult Nails polishes so I ordered the whole collection during their preorder period. I’m so glad I did because I love all four of these!


In A Trance. Normally I don’t go for these olive/green/gold colors, but how could I not like this one? It’s beautiful, full of golden shimmer! This is two coats, and the formula was perfect on this.


Enigmatic. This one is full of shimmer too, but it was a little sheer. I did three coats on index and pinky, and two coats on middle and ring finger.
And a closer look at the shimmer:


Awakening. Dark teal creme, this was a little thin and sheer. I should have done three coats but the sun was almost gone and I wanted to get this done, so I did just two and you can still see my nails. Love the color though!


Hypnotize Me. This a very very sheer green full of blue and green glitter! This is the only one that was hard to apply because it was very thick. From index to pinky I did one coat, two coats, three coats and one coat over Awakening (sorry about that peelie/chip on my index nail, also my nails are still stained from OPI Swimsuit…Nailed It!). I wouldn’t wear this on it’s own, but I think is a gorgeous layering polish, I love the blue/green sparkle!
A couple more pics:

Overall I’m really happy I gave Cult Nails a try, I love all the colors in this collection and I’m already planning on getting some of their other polishes. 😀

Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Swatches

I want to start by saying that I don’t really like fall. I don’t like it because it means summer is over and winter is coming soon, and I hate winter! The cold and the snow are just very hard for me to deal with. It’s much warmer where I come from and there is no snow. Now, if I could just stay at home all winter by my fireplace with my kitty I wouldn’t mind, but of course I have to drive and driving in the snow really scares me. I’m always very nervous and anxious all winter.
Anyway, I still like all colors, so when I saw the new FP fall collection at Sally’s I grabbed the three I liked the most.

Cordur-Orange. I think this is the perfect fall orange! It’s not as bright as my picture makes it, it’s a little dusty but still very orange (if that makes sense). I did one coat for my index and pinky, and two coats for middle and ring finger. Formula was great, a little thick but it applied well, and even though I did two coats on two fingers to compare, this is easily a one coater.


Vintage Velvet. This is another one coater! It’s a dusty teal creme, and I love colors like this! I did two coats on index and middle, and one coat on ring and pinky. Once again, the formula was good.


Purple Pinstripe. This is dusty purple creme. This was a little sheer on me so I did two coats on all nails.

Like I’ve already mentioned the formula was really good on these, and the colors, even though they may not be terribly unique, are still pretty and very autumn-y. My favorite is Vintage Velvet! 😀

NOTD: Grape…Set…Match & Servin’ Up Sparkle

Yay, I finally found the OPI Serena Williams Grand Slam England, I’ve been wanting it since I started seeing pictures of it!

I did two coats of Grape…Set…Match. It’s so gorgeous!! It’s a reddish grape purple with tons of pink, purple and blue shimmer. I couldn’t stop looking at it and I took lots of pictures!

I took this one after four days of wear and there are no chips and only minimal tipwear, my right hand shows a bit more tipwear since I’m right-handed.

I added one coat of Servin’ Up Sparkle, I almost didn’t want to because I like Grape…Set…Match so much, but I wanted to see what it looked like with the holo glitter.

This is sooo sparkly!! I love this look as well, so I’m glad I got this set! 🙂

Finger Paints Peaceful Purple

Hello! It’s so hot out today I just want to stay in my room with the AC on! Luckily I’m done working for the day and hopefully I don’t have to drive anywhere else today.
Anyway, here is something sparkly for this sunny day, Finger Paints Peaceful Purple:

This is between 2-3 coats, and my camera messes up purples so just imagine this more purple and less blue.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

China Glaze Grape Pop and Chunky Holo Black

Hello! I recently got Grape Pop and since I’m a purple lover, I couldn’t wait to give it a try:

Beautiful!! I think this just became my favorite purple! It’s a bright deep purple creme, much more purple than it looks in my pictures, my camera kept turning this blue. I did two coats, because that’s what I normally do but this could easily be a one coater.

And I also got some Kleancolors so I layered Chunky Holo Black on top

This looks so pretty and it flashes so many different colors like gold, orange, green! I can’t wait to try it over different colors. Several pictures because I couldn’t pick just one!


A blurry one to show all the different colors and sparkles! 😀

Wild at Heart with Black Tips

I wanted to get a couple of more days out of this one so I used tape and added black tips to cover the tip wear:

I couldn’t find my scotch tape so I tried using the blue painters tape but it didn’t work and I messed up my index finger. I had to redo it after I found the regular tape. I really like this purple/black combination! 🙂

And here are bonus pictures of my kitty!
