Happy Easter! And some pastel blue comparisons…

Here is Eyeko – Pastel Polish!

The bottle shows a lot of hidden shimmer like Hard Candy – Sky, so they are very similar but I think Sky has more white in the base. They are both really pretty though!

I compared it with 2 other pastel blues I’ve gotten recently.
From left to right, Eyeko – Pastel, Color Club – Take Me To Your Chateau, love & beauty – Pearlescent Aqua, Eyeko – Pastel

The bottle in that one is love & beauty – Pearlescent Aqua from forever 21. That one has a lot of shimmer and is more sheer than the others.

Color Club’s Take Me To Your Chateau is SO opaque! It looked like that after ONE coat! No streaks, no bald spots, no cloudiness, just completely opaque. I felt like I was brushing on acrylic paint. Its a must-have!

Oh, and here are the cupcakes I made for Easter! 🙂

I was going to do American Apparel Butter with some black chickys stamped from the Konad plate with the chick, sheep, etc. but I totally ran out of time since I had to make so many cupcakes, so I’m wearing Butter London – Teddy Girl again. I love it so much!

Lots of light blues! (Part 2)

Part one is here: click if you missed it!

This is the part of the baby blue set that seemed to be a little more greenish-blue.

Ginger + Liz – Boy Toy
Looks more blue in the bottle, has some shimmer to it… I love it, its a cute color.

Essie – Mint Candy Apple, Orly – Gumdrop, China Glaze – For Audrey
Since you’ve seen so many swatches of these already, I just put them side by side.

China Glaze – Metallic Muse
This one works with Konad so I usually stamp with it!

OPI – Sea Ya Later Sailor
This color is so pretty I just want to paint everything with it, look at this closer up…

AQmore – Mediterranean
I’ve talked about this one in the last few days, it is just SO pretty.

Now tell me your favorites! 🙂

Lots of light blues! (Part 1)

The color I’m picking for my wedding is light blue, so I’ve been looking at light blue invitations, flowers, well… everything, of course. My step-sister’s wedding was Tiffany’s blue, and my future sister-in-law’s wedding was periwinkle blue. I’m sure they know how it goes when you know you want light blue but you have to pick the exact light blue you want!

Anyway, although I’m not sure I’ll have any of these on my nails on my actual wedding day, it had me really wanting to compare all of my light blue polishes! (I’m excluding Chanel Riva since I no longer have it and already swatched it in here.) So here we go! 🙂

Don’t those look so pretty all laid out like that?

I’ll start with the two that are my least favorite just because they look too smurfy blue to me.

Color Club – Blue Light

petites – creme blue

I was able to place the rest in 2 shade categories… baby blue and baby green blue.

Here are the baby blues!

Sephora by OPI – Havana Dreams
This one is a really pretty shade of baby blue. It is a creme and it doesn’t have any dinginess to it.

Nubar – Baby Blue
This is a really opaque and chalky creme baby blue. Unlike the others, you can probably get away with 2 coats on this one. It almost looks like acrylic paint as you’re putting it on the nail!

Hard Candy – Sky
This is my second most favorite nail polish ever, I could just go on about it forever! haha

Look at that shimmer that comes out, it is just the prettiest thing!

Essie – St Barths Blue
I’m not big on this one. It is really sheer and probably takes about 6 coats to be opaque. It is a shimmery grey-ish blue.

OPI – I Vant to be A-Lone Star
Although this one is a little too grey for me, it is actually really pretty. Its nice and shimmery and applies a lot better than the Essie St Barths Blue. I’d like to compare this to China Glaze Sea Spray, but I don’t have that one yet!

Whew, that’s already a lot for one post, I’ll continue on the next post with the baby greenish blues!

To be continued…
