Royal and navy blue nail polish swatches and comparisons picture heavy post Disclosure: This post contains an affiliate link. Left to right in natural light: This inspired me to do a mega-comparison of blues. I have so many blue nail polishes, you guys. Almost as many as I have greens or teals or purples. I didn’t swatch all my blues here – I decided to limit this to just the ones in the royal-to-navy range. I hope this will be useful for some people in deciding if a blue you have is actually almost the same as something you are lusting after. None of the ones I had were dupes, other than the three mentioned above, though some are sort of similar. I’m not going to review each polish in detail; I’ll let the swatches speak for themselves.
OPI Lisbon Collection Swatches & Review
As always I have a lot of photos. I am not affiliated with Orly. Really smooth, easy to apply first coat, no streaks. I used two coats plus topcoat. Not dull per se, and not matte, just not really glossy. A good glossy topcoat made it shine though.
Hook Up by Orly – lovely fresh spring time yellow Sexy Silhouette by China Glaze – gorgeous jewel toned pink that gets darker and darker with your number of coats, it is a very rich shade Black Mesh by China Glaze – crackle nail polish.
Shellac vs Gelish – which is best? To keep things simple, I’m concentrating on these two, however there are a number of gel nail polish brands available. To be honest, apart from reading a few reviews and comments on internet nail forums, I don’t know as much about these other products. I’ve listed some of them here with links if you’re interested: Gel polishes have become popular in the last few years for good reason. They dry instantly, last at least a good two weeks, and are relatively easy on and off.

Mar 05, · Revlon – Chic – Swatch I’m not too keen on green so I apologize if I’m offending anyone out there by not wearing green today. I actually kind of forgot it is St. Patrick’s Day.

Connaught Square Swatch Hello once again! I apologize for my temporary hiatus. Unfortunately I’ve been having a bad week, but what do you do? In my opinion life is a cycle. Bad things happen so you don’t take the good things for granted. Today I comforted myself by buying a new polish and hanging out with some old friends. It’s a target exclusive and I love it! I just painted it on my toes: However, today that is not what I am showing you guys!
Today I have a polish by Nails Inc. It is a gorgeous 3D glitter. The base is primarily a bunch of blue glitters and then mixed with that is a bunch of larger, purple glitters. Application is rough and gritty, but it’s supposed to be 3D, so that adds to the texture. It had pretty good coverage, but was not opaque in some spots so I used three coats.
Polish Pick: Orly Hook Up
What are you hooked on? Someone is hooked on stinky fishy stuff. This polish is a beaut, smelly name notwithstanding.
So here you have it, $20, and a hook up of product that includes 30 Eyeshadows, 15 Lip Colors and Glosses, 3 Cheek Colors, 2 Bronzers 1 Lip Pencil, and 1 Eye Liner Pencil. You can’t get a palette with this much for that little with quality to back it and in this case it does have a certain amount of quality to it.
Haha, also, people will notice it from far away! Finish My experience with neon nail polish made me expect to see Glowstick by Orly dry down to a matte finish. It had a sheen that perhaps you could wear without a top coat, but I love to dry the polish fast with my Seche Vite. A lot of times neon yellows dry to an almost-chalky finish. This one looked fairly shiny by itself! Lots of yellow nail polishes are a streaky mess, and when you have a neon finish, usually that makes the formula more difficult to apply.
But, I found that with 3 medium coats, I actually got great pigmentation. With the first and second coats, I could see streaks — I expected those. The third coat gave me better coverage, and it was only if I looked reallllllly close could I see some minor streaking. But, remember my motto is that happiness is more important than perfection!
Pros Less streaky than most yellow nail polishes Dries with a sheen, not matte like most neon finishes Cons From an older collection, so some may find it more challenging to track down in a physical store Final Verdict: When was the last time you used a glowstick? Have you ever tried glow-in-the-dark makeup?

N Lacquer 1st Anniversary collection! I’m back from vacation, and in more than one way.. New York was super awesome and we loved our stay, though a week was enough because this city is overwhelming! We also visited a lot of musea and other touristy things, along with just browsing the city, enjoying the parks and such. Obviously I brought home some polish, would you guys be interested in a haul post? There are 4 different shades, 3 of them are a duo with a “regular” version and a holographic buddy, and then there is Pay Day H which is the holographic version of the earlier released Pay Day.
Image source The lacquers are poured in the brand new bottles which are 12ml in size, and have screenprinted logo’s opposed to the stickers that were on the old bottles. I really like the new bottles, they are so elegant!

Jul 07, · Well, I recently picked up Sinful Colors Endless Blue, which I would also put in the near dupe category – and it’s even better than the other two! This inspired me to do a mega-comparison of blues. I have so many blue nail polishes, you : brutally honest beauty.
I mean, they had me at holo… glitter. What surprised me is that the colors are even more bold and saturated than the bottle shade implies. Orly polishes come with the fan fave rubberized cap. That signature easy-to-grip topper makes it easy to control the polish. The brush is long and thin with flexible bristles. I personally would like it if there were more bristles to get more coverage in each stroke. The three cremes and peach sparkle are not technically neons, but they apply like them.
I suggest loading the brush and using as few strokes as possible. That being said, I needed three coats with each to avoid VNL visible nail line.
Sunday, August 30, Dove Summer Glow Review I had been feeling a little bit pale recently so I decided it was time for a bit of false tan. I’ve never been in to tanning so I was a little bit nervous to go straight into a proper tanning lotion or mousse. I thought I would start off with a tanning moisturiser because, to me, it seemed a little more foolproof and I could definitely do with the extra moisture.
Jul 12, · Color Club Sweet Pea Hey guys! Post number , amazing. Today I have another work mani/swatch to show you. Color Club’s Sweet Pea from this Spring’s Blossoming Collection. This was the only color I got from the collection, because I don’t really have another color like it. LE LACQUER HOOK UP – LAC LAC -.
Today I wanted to share my first Scofflaw Nail Varnish with you: I’ve ordered from Scofflaw before, but it was for a secret Santa exchange and not myself, so this is the first ever Scofflaw swatch for Polish Hound. I am a massive, massive Tom Waits fan he’s really a hero of mine , and Rain Dogs is one of his best albums- if not the best- so, this polish had to be mine!
I don’t know if the name of this polish is really a reference to the album or not, but either way Rain Dogs is a warm-toned purple that looks cooler-toned when built-up. It’s filled with beautiful holographic microglitter and shimmer particles that shift blue-green. The base is more of a creme than a crelly. Artificial light, three coats: You can see that it’s totally opaque and non-streaky at the second coat, but the color stays at more of a warm-toned plum- so it just depends what you like!
I hate to say it, but my expectations for this polish were super high, and I don’t think it quite lived up to them.

I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death. Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy.
The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read? Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems?
Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, there are millions of suns left, You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.
