Savina Merlot, OPI Catherine the Grape, China Glaze Gamer Glam, and Milani Hi-Res

When I got OPI – Catherine the Grape, I loved the color, even though I don’t usually like purples… so I went and got the other 2 purples I had gotten recently and left the Savina – Merlot on one nail from last time so I could do a comparison.

I don’t have Gamer Glam anymore, but I kept the other 3!

I have so much to type but my wrist is still a little screwy… it looks really bad actually! I wanted to try the Shellac formula so I got myself a little UV lamp and the base, top and color coats. I put it on this weekend since it is supposed to last for weeks and I’m having such a hard time painting my right hand right now since my left one doesn’t want to work right just yet!

I’ll post about that soon with a video… and I’m going to do a tuffscent.com giveaway of a bottle or two!

Savina – Merlot

I picked this up at Nordstrom rack because it reminded me of OPI – Meet Me On The Star Ferry.

I love it so much! It is more opaque and just a perfect mauve-ish plum color that has a lot of shimmer to it.

I see these on 8ty8beauty.com too.

BB Couture – Eternity

I love dark plummy brown shimmers like this! How did I miss out on these BB Coutures for so long?

Look how pretty this one is!

I just made a video of my whole polish collection for you guys in case you’re curious what I keep and swap away… I’ll upload it tonight and post it!

Zoya – Blair, Kalista, Mikka & Rihana

I was doing a lot of Zoya swatching today! I wanted to compare all of these dark jewel-toned shimmers.

All of them are so pretty and they come alive in the light because of how rich the pigment is. All of these are only 2 coats too!

Blair and Kalista are my favorites. Before doing this comparison, I loved Rihana but now I think the others are better on my skin tone because they are a little warmer.

It looks like their tones from left to right are red, brown, purple, and magenta! The bottle is Blair, by the way.

Zoya really knows how to make some awesome polishes!

Dior – Lemon Balm

Another lemming bites the dust! (And did NOT disappoint!)

I’m loving this one! It is basically a brown with a tiny hint of plum or mauve at certain angles. It is SO much more dynamic than Aztec Chocolate.

The application was smooth and lovely, and it has a rich shimmer that kind of looks different at different angles. I tried to capture that, but I’m not sure if you can see what I mean…

This one is definitely a keeper!
