Zoya – Maya, Paige, Penelope, & Joy

Here is another Zoya comparison swatch of some more I got from the Earth Day promo! I think I have a couple more left after this still!

Maya is very jelly! This was 4 coats. It is a nice coral hot pink that isn’t too neon!

2 coats for the rest of the 3…
Paige is a dark mauve purple, I actually love this one and it is the only one of these 4 that I’m keeping.

Penelope is a light rose mauve, and it is just a little too light for me.

Joy is the bottle that I’m holding. It has a really warm shimmer to it, its very pretty! I think it was just too light for me as a purple-ish color?

OPI – So Many Clowns… So Little Time & Step Right Up

I had to do a side by side swatch for these because they were so similar! If you put them side by side, you can see that So Many Clowns is a warmer-toned eggshell white and Step Right Up is a very light pink.

Both go on like sheer jelly polishes, so I wanted to show you what it looked like with 2 coats and what it looked like with 5 coats.

From Left to Right, So Many Clowns 5 coats, So Many Clowns 2 coats, Step Right Up 2 coats, and Step Right Up 5 coats:

I will probably only keep Step Right Up because if I’m going to wear a sheer jelly white, I’d rather it be pink toned because the warmth of the So Many Clowns kind of enhances the little bit of yellow stain I have from wearing dark polishes a lot of the time.

I Juggle Men was my favorite from this Femme De Cirque collection though, which do you like the best? 🙂

I made Easter cupcakes with the Peeps! I’ll post a picture tomorrow with my comparison of my newest pastel blues!

OPI – Dutch Tulips

I grabbed this one for my Spring Giveaway and had to swatch it really quickly! It is a really pretty pink red that is like a half jelly.. you know those that are jelly-ish but opaque in 3 coats still, if you prefer to wear it that way?

I finally took the Zoya – Kate off last night, but before doing that, I wore it all day stamped with Sally Hansen Insta Dri – Mauve It! It was pretty cute! I used my new Chez Delaney XL stamping plate B.

Deborah Lippmann – Razzle Dazzle

Okay, this is the last Lippmann polish I had to get. (I think!) I’m so glad I did, I LOVE it! It applies a lot easier than the other larger glitters, and the base color matches the glitter too so after 2 coats, it is nice and even!

Deborah Lippmann – Razzle Dazzle

It does kind of dry a tiny bit gritty though.

China Glaze – Stroll

It took me so long to finally try this one because I always thought it was going to be so dark that it looked black… and then I’d see those gold glass flecks in the bottle, which didn’t help.

Its actually so gorgeous on the nail though! It looks like a dark berry, and the gold glass flecks are underneath the dark jelly base, so they don’t look gold at all, they just really catch the light.

I’m really glad I tried it, now it’ll be one of my favorites. 🙂
