Nail Pattern Boldness - Tin Man swatches

Saturday, November 10, 2012

The gold flake polishes are quite common now. But the silver flakes have been harder to find. Nail Pattern Boldness has released a silver flake polish called "Tin Man."

This top coat is packed full of silver flakes. I am not sure exactly what the metal is or even if it is truly silver. But it is a pretty flake regardless.

The flakes are large silver flakes and appear crinkly. This makes application a little harder as they don't always lay flat. But I didn't have to fish for the flakes and they applied evenly.

I applied Tin Man over Venique Wrapped in Jewels.

China Glaze Holiday Joy Collection swatches - part one

China Glaze has released its Holiday Collection for 2012 -  Holiday Joy. This collection is full of glitter and festive colors.

"Our unique lacquers contain China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish. These glossy lacquers work in perfect cohesion with our professional nail treatments for lasting strength, durability and overall gorgeous nails," China Glaze website

These polishes have a wonderful formula and they dry to a wonderful shine quickly.

There are 12 phenomenal polishes in the collection. I will highlight six of them in this post and share the rest with you in a separate post.

Let's move on to the swatches. These swatches do not have a top coat applied.

Champagne Kisses - is a wonderful gold glitter polish with tons of holographic flecks. It will stand on its own easily. I used three coats to get full coverage with this polish.
