Reader Alyssa requested swatches of these yesterday when I posted my haul. Today was a crazy busy day at work so I wasn't able to do it until now. I am sorry for the delay!
BTW... I am not a fan of swatching on nail wheels. I feel like its "cheating" and that's why I don't usually use them. But Alyssa assured me that it was OK so here it is! I hope you don't mind. Swatchathons and I are a rare event. I am so busy with work that one polish change a day, perhaps two is the most I have time for. Thank you for understanding!
As mentioned in my haul post, I only picked up 8 of the polishes in this collection. These are the ones I felt were most interesting or worthwhile. I do not remember how many in total there were. I should have whipped out my phone and took a picture of the display for you. I apologize that I didn't. I am not sure what stores will carry these, but I found mine at Walmart.
Onto the bottle shots!
|Platinum, Glass Slipper, Aisle Be There|
|Something Blue, Pulled Sugar, Princess Cut|
|Wedding Chapel, Black Tie|
I applied one coat by itself and then one coat over black on the wheel. These are great for layering, they are all beautiful. I highly recommend this collection!
Platinum looks like a pearl in the bottle. This one was a pleasant surprise. I really like it over black! I see green, pink, and purple... does that make it a multi-chrome? (Nevermind the speck of black on the left swatch! OOPS how did that get there LOL)
Glass Slipper is another favorite of mine. Who can resist a white flakie? Not me, that's for sure!
Aisle Be There is a very pretty pink shimmer that also flashes bits of gold. I think it looks great by itself as well as over black. (Looks like I put a fingerprint on the right swatch! OOPS how did that get there LOL)

Something Blue is a shimmer with glitter, hooray! The iridescent glitter is sparse, so it's just the right combination of sparkle and shine.
Pulled Sugar looks to me like a teeny pink glass fleck. It looks more interesting in these photos than it does in person. I am a little disappointed with it.
Princess Cut is the other flakie of the bunch! It is pink in the bottle, but ends up looking very similar to Glass Slipper on the nail.
Wedding Crasher is a magenta jelly with lots of small pink square glitter. I love it over black!
Black Tie is another disappointment for me. Good news is, it seems to be relatively opaque, so layering it over black is not necessary. On the nail it looks like a frost with a slight duochrome. I see pink, purple and blue when looking at it in different angles.
What do you think of the eight I chose? Which are your favorites? Do you plan on getting any of these?
