I WON!! :D / icing - runaway - swatch and review

You guys! I am one of the winners in the Bundle Monster contest!
Big thank you to everyone who voted! I'm positive I couldn't have won without you guys!
I can't wait to get the plates and start playing! :D

I'm delighted.

Now I'll show you the nail polish I am currently sporting!
It is pretty rare that I end up posting something on the day I am wearing it, hahaha.
I got this polish on Monday and put it on that night because it was too pretty not to.

Runaway is a magenta glitter polish that can't really decide if it wants to be purple or pink.
I found it hard to photograph the same way Senorita Bonita was - always too pink or too purple.
But I think I got a good one!

More details and pictures after the jump.

For this swatch I used 2 coats of Runaway over 1 coat of Revlon Violet.
I hauled out my handy wheel of purples and decided that Violet would be the best match to wear underneath it! Hahaha.

The above picture is a bit too purple.
And the next picture is a bit too pink. (But under certain artificial lights it does look this pink.)

Now, I did wear this over another color, but that isn't necessary.
I was going out to dinner and didn't want to possibly have on 4 coats of glitter because it wouldn't dry in time even with Seche Vite, so I chose the safer route.
However I did swatch it on a wheel alone, and it can be opaque!

That is three coats. The base is tinted a bit so even if the glitter doesn't cover fully, you won't have naked spots.

Love this polish. Happy I bought it. And despite the glitter it wasn't AS gritty as I expected.
You know it must be a cool polish when I wear it, alone, for 2 full days (and counting.)

Another cool thing that I noticed today as I was being distracted by the sparkly-ness is that where the base is tinted, the first layer of glitter looks darker than the second, where it has the tinted polish over it. Cool!

One more picture for good measure.


Thanks again for the votes you guys! :D:D
