some delayed birthday swatches

Good evening everyone!
Today I'm going to show you some pretty polishes that I got for my birthday.
These were sent to me by a lovely gal named Caroline who you all may know as Shadow's Nail Art.

Caroline bought these three polishes for me from my wishlist! She is the sweetest, and we share a love for all things Hello Kitty. Check her out!

Sinful Colors - Forget Now. This is a hot hot pink jelly, jam packed with very sparkly shimmer.
Super pretty!

And this is how it looks with China Glaze - Techno over it!
Techno is large and small silver holo hex glitter in a clear base. OPI's Servin' Up Sparkle is a dupe for this.
I wanted this polish for a while and I thought I would get it next year (because it is being re-released with the Electro Pop Collection) but then Caroline beat me to it!
I love it. Great glitter topper.

I took this so you can see the glitter better.

Sinful Colors - Daddy's Girl. This is officially one of the most difficult polishes to photograph.
I did these swatches about a month ago so I don't even remember which picture is more accurate.
I know it is not as sheer as it looks in the photos - and I know it is really pretty! It's quite purple and has great fuchsia shimmer. It is a jelly but not as jelly as it looks.

In the bottle, the shimmer shows all those great colors but you don't see that on the nail.

And here is how it looks with Techno! I promise that Daddy's Girl is actually great but I am just not capable of showing that, apparently!

Thanks again, Caroline! You're awesome.


  1. Daddy's Girl is a really strange name for that colour I think :P otherwise the colours are all amazing, even the glitter! I didn't like glitters so much but lately I've been developing a crush on them :P and that one by China Glaze is astounding! :)

  2. I just got Forget Now and I can't wait to try it out! :D

  3. :-) love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your very welcome!!!!!!

  4. pretty! and happy "delayed" birthday

  5. Nice color combos!!! I love Sinful Colors. I think I'm well on my way to owning them all.

  6. I don't like it when there's shimmer in the bottle and not on the nails. I'd much rather have the shimmer on my nails, and not in the bottle :D
    It's a pain with the colours that are hard to capture on camera. I think it looks great though. :)

  7. oooh i really love the purple!!! gorgeous!!

  8. I have this and love it !!!
    Is one of my favourite!!
    I had the same problem to photograph it, but I got it! I share with you some pictures :)

    Cheers :)
