Hello my dear fiends!
I had so much fun swatching my newest additions, the only turn off was the beyond crappy weather *yikes* Especially the last couple of pictures are really dark, sorry for that!
Well, what did Auntie Charis pick up this time?
I picked up 4 Scherer Chameleon polishes, Sinful Colors "Merlot" a really pretty bordeaux red and Essie's "Nude Beach" a pale pink with opal shimmer
OMG those Chameleon polishes made me almost faint when I laid my eyes on them! They are 4 wonderful shades and all, I repeat, ALL of them are DUOCHROMES!!! Can i get any more goodness for only 2,99$ per bottle? I guess not!
I am just really sad that I had no sunlight at all (all grey, dark and rainy here in Munich), because those babies show their real beauty only in sunlight. So from my swatches, you can only guess how beautiful they really are. As soon as the weather will be decent, I will re-swatch them, promise!
All the swatches are 2 coats, on my bare, naked, short and stumpy nails, no TopCoat. The Formula of these is RUNNY, I mean really liquidy. I like thicker polish, but hey, that's personal preference. The first coat was a bit streaky, but fortunately the polish evens out when you apply the second coat. The brush was beyond crappy, it lost it's hair faster than I was able to apply the polish...darn. But I just used another brush, fine by me, I can live with it for the price.
But now on with the pics...
Scherer Chameleon "Dreams"
This is a beautiful, pale pink with opal duochrome shimmer. It makes me think of light pink pearl necklace in the sunlight. The first coat was pretty iridescent, so I might do some layering experiments with this polish
Scherer Chameleon "Blue Frost"
Lovely, light frosted blue with pearl pink duochrome shimmer. Makes me think of ice crystals.
Scherer Chameleon "Calypso"
Metallic lilac with rainbow colored duochrome shimmer. Absolutely awesome in my book, only turn down is that the lilac has a good portion of a dusty rose color in it, which is too warm toned for my skin. But hey so what, the polish is awesome.
Scherer Chameleon "Blue Sky"
My personal winner. A dark, lilac-blueish base again with rainbow colored duochrome shimmer. It makes me think of Nubar's "Peacock Feathers" polish.
Again, I feel kinda sad that none of the pictures I show here do the colors full justice. But I promised to re-swatch them as soon as the dun decides to return to Munich. So see you back soon!
