4 Spring Peaches!

There are only 18 entries in my Spring Giveaway guys, so your chances are really good. Just FYI!

Illamasqua Purity was my first peach polish, and I loved it, so I wanted to do a little comparison of the others I picked up recently!

Here is American Apparel’s Summer Peach. I think pale Peach is much more springy than summery…

I compared it here with Illamasqua Purity. You can see how Purity is more glossy and a little darker of a shade. Both are very pretty!

Then I added another two so I could compare them all side-by-side. The two I added are Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Lulu and a new one that forever21.com had, which was Feminine Wiles by love & beauty. (Their polishes don’t really have names on the bottles so I labeled it as love & beauty’s peach but when I went through to find my old invoice, I saw that on the site, it is named Feminine Wiles. They describe it as baby pink but to me its pretty peachy!?)

Oh, and don’t miss out on Zoya’s Earth Day promo! It is SUCH a good deal! My color spoons should get here by tonight so I’ll be filling my cart before I go to bed. 🙂

Butter London – Teddy Girl

I LOVE this baby pink! Its one of my new favorites now for sure. Its the only Butter London I own because the other colors I tried just didn’t really work for me.

Love the application and love the pretty color. Its more glossy than my other pastel pinks but its so opaque that it works for this color. This is just 2 coats with no problems at all…

It looks yummy enough to drink! (I won’t try though.)

American Apparel – Butter

If this color doesn’t say Easter and baby chicks, then what does!? 🙂

This is the prettiest pastel yellow color I’ve found. I don’t like yellow nail polishes at all, but this one is so cute and pretty, I had to have it! I bought a 2nd one to give to you in my Easter Giveaway too, of course!

Its a really opaque pastel and only takes a coat or two!

I want to show you the difference between this and China Glaze – Lemon Fizz, because I used to think that Lemon Fizz was a cute baby chick yellow until I found Butter.

It depends on how bright you want your yellow I guess, but I prefer the pastel shade of Butter. I hope whoever wins the giveaway likes it as much as I do!

Hello Kitty – Bubble Gum

Oops, I almost went the first day of the week without posting a pastel Eastery color like I said I would. I’m in California so its 10pm and I technically made it. 😉

This is one of the Hello Kitty Sephora polishes. I had the mint green one and had to just get the pink one afterall. I’m not even into Hello Kitty and I just have to have them because they’re so cute! (If they had puppy shaped bottles of nail polish, I’d probably buy all of them… Or llama shaped bottles!)

I actually really liked the application of this one too! This picture shows off the cuteness of the bottle the most…

It is almost as blue toned of a pink as China Glaze – Something Sweet, so if you’re a fan of those kinds of pinks, don’t you have to have it in this cute of a bottle?

I’m almost wanting to buy that perfume bottle and decant my favorite perfume in it, because have you seen how cute that bottle is with the vintage puff thingy and everything!?

Turquoise Pastel Creme Comparison

Another polish I custom purchased last week for a swapper was Essie – Turqouise and Caicos. So I did a quick swatch and compared it to my Essie – Mint Candy Apple and Orly – Gumdrop.

Mint Candy Apple is one of my favorites, mostly because it is the most bright minty blue-toned of the other greenish blues I compare it to.

Pinks with hot pink shimmer…

I saw the new Spring displays that Maybelline just put out and wanted to swatch the pinks because they both have the hot pink hidden shimmer inside! Pink Halo and Pink Glimpse.

I picked up both from these:

Then I grabbed my Zoya – Barbie and Nicole by OPI – You’re an Angel to compare them since they all have hot pink shimmer in them.

Since the hot pink shimmer only shows in the sun I had to get that photo in direct sun. It was still hard to show the shimmer inside of Barbie, so now I feel like I don’t like it as much… her hidden shimmer is a little too hidden.

You can see the hot pink flash the most with Pink Halo, that one is more of a sheer. Pink Glimpse is my favorite though, the bottle that I’m holding. It is a nice white and pink frost with the hot pink shimmer inside and leaves no visible nail line. It is the prettiest to me! I think I’d wear that one with the Pink Halo over it to intensify the pink flash… sounds perfect to me. 🙂
