Romantic Valentine's Pink Swatchapalooza Part II

Helloooooo and welcome back for part II of my Swatchapalooza!

So hang on tight, we'll get started right there where we left off yesterday, more pinks, pinks and even more pinks, yay!


First up we have OPI "Princesses Rule!

This ones a real stunner once you wear it on your nails, I swear! In the bottle it looks like a pretty average sheer pink with shimmer. Wrong! The shimmer is so densely packed, it looks more like a crystal coat! Awesome!

It is one of the very few polishes I love to wear just bare, but Princesses Rule! is sooooo beyond perfect if you layer it over dark cremes for example, be sure to get stunning effects! Try it!

The formula is a no fuss works well one. I applied 3 coats, so you can keep layering on more for more crystal shimmer, or just apply 1 coat for a barely there look, whatever works for you!


Up next is OPI "Royal Flush Blush"

No we're moving on to the more covering pinks. Royal Flush Blush is almost a creme, with a warm pink shimmer. I would say it's MAC's "Dainty" Mineralized Blush in nail polish form. :-)

It gives good coverage after just 2 coats. If you like the pink to be a bit bolder, apply a third layer. The formula was fine, no problems there.

So if you are looking for a more covering, almost creme like finish, this pink is the one for you


Up next is China Glaze "Chiaroscuro"

This is a difficult one. Light pink, with a golden peach shimmer,and a slightly light green duochrome effect

It looks very interesting in the bottle. Too bad it doesnt work 100% with my skin tone. If I just look at the pink part, it's fine, but the golden peachy shimmer makes it a bit too warm for my taste. Still gorgeous though, totally depending on the light you have, you get a bunch of different effects with this one. So if you need a "not you everyday pink" go grab this one!

The formula is the regular China Glaze one, I needed 3 coats for enough coverage.


Next we have China Glaze "TTYL"

I just had to include this, even though it leans more towards peach than pink. But hey, works for me. Get it, wear it, love it, the end :-)

I am still in love with the China Glaze OMG Collection, those were some of the best holo's out there

I can just keep staring at them...

Bilder hochladen

oooops, yes, now that I am done drooling over this, back to business...
So for all those girls who havent used one of the OMG holos before, the drying time of these is very short and in my opinion, they are best worn without a base coat, somehow that makes the polish last longer

Make sure youre putting on some Topcoat though, since they dry to a somewhat matte finish and Topcoat really makes them shine!


So next we have China Glaze "Admire"
Bilder hochladen

Pink metallic. This ones just one coat! The formula is a lot like the polishes from the Khromes Collection.

Bilder hochladen

Similar to the holos, this one is best worn bare. No Base or Topcoat. It dries fairly fast, but have to be cautious to apply with just one stroke, otherwise this polish get's streaky in no time and it looks like you got all sorts of dents and bumps in your nails

Bilder hochladen

Still this would be my top pick if you want a no sheer but still romantic pink polish


Last but not least, our final polish, China Glaze "Jetstream"
Bilder hochladen

Since I love layering so much, my last polish here just needed to be a sheer :-)

Bilder hochladen

Nice cool pale pink base, with a pink/purple shimmer. Love this! It looks awesome layered over purple or dark polishes.

No fuss formula, easy to apply. Too bad I had no sunlight, it makes the purple sheen come out a bit stronger.



So that's it :-)
I hoped you ladies liked my pink swatchapalooza. Did you find a polish you might consider for Valentines Day? I would love to hear from you!
