Sephora + Pantone Universe swatches

Thursday, August 23, 2012

There are some amazing colors in the new Sephora + Pantone Universe Jewel Lacquers. But I will tell you the colors are completely camera shy. It was hard to catch the true color. But they all have super shimmer to them and applied well in two coats.

The polishes had a great formula and the brushes were good. They also had a relatively quick dry time. But my favorite part is the sensational shimmer to the polishes.

Let's start with Evergreen. A deep, rich, shimmery, metallic forest green.

 Next up is Parachute Purple. It is a gorgeous, vibrant purple with tons of blue shimmer.

My personal favorite is Reflecting Pond. Of course that means it is blue. A deep metallic, navy blue that simply lights up in bright light.

 Another favorite for me is Violet Quartz. Although I have to say I don't see the violet in the polish. It is a deep burgundy metallic polish. Very vampy and quite classy.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Jewel lacquers can be purchased for $9 for 11 ml. These great polishes are available on Sephora.com An OPI is 15 mil if that helps you make the size comparison.

Bottom Line: These polishes will get used quite a bit as the weather cools and we segway into Fall and Winter. I will definitely be watching this line to see what other colors they come up with.

Hits Preciosa collection swatches

Monday, July 9, 2012

I love the Hits brand of polish. So I really enjoyed swatching these polishes for you.

Hits polishes are available at Llarowe. Llarowe is a one-stop shop for specialty nail polishes that aren't available in stores.

These polishes provide great coverage. I had one really wonky brush, but the remainder of the brushes were good.

I know you want me to just skip the babbling and move on to the swatches. All of the swatches below are two coats and no top coat. Oh, and in case you had any doubts the blue is my favorite.

Pedra Do Sol is a gorgeous bright blue polish. It is my favorite of the bunch.

My second favorite is this lovely sea foam green - Agua Marinha. It's a very soft color that has a wonderful sheen to it.

Hematita is a soft silver shade. Not overly silver - but just the right amount of metallic silver without being too much.
