seven random swatches for your viewing pleasure!

Hey guys! Tonight I'm gonna just post some totally random swatches I have had laying around in my folders for a while. They don't deserve their own posts, but they deserve to be seen!
(Two of them are pretty old and bad but don't hate.)

I still aim to one day have posted swatches or manicures of my entire collection... It will probably never happen but a girl can try!

Let's start with a cute OPI.

OPI - Panda-Monium Pink
This is an older color but I think it is in the core line. Maybe. Can't remember. I picked this up in a clearance sale for two dolla!
It takes three coats to cover fully but the color is really cute.

Orly - Shockwave
This is one of the colors from a recent collection, Electronica. I didn't pick it up originally but when I found it on clearance at Sally's, plus an extra 50% off, it came home with me.
I'm glad it did, because the formula is great and I don't think I have another royal blue like it really! 2 coats.

Essie - Pretty Edgy
Picked up this one in a blog sale recently. 2 coats for full coverage. Fun green. I love green nails.

Sation - Love At First Lavender
This is a new-to-me brand that I found recently at Winners. They were just $3.99 a pop so of them followed me home. This one is that color between pink and purple that I can't seem to resist! Formula was good, no complaints.

Sation - Periwinkle Princess
Shown over Love At First Lavender, this is a glitter topcoat with fuchsia and blue glitter as well as some short holo bars that are kinda hard to see in the pictures, but they are there!
It looked more fun in the bottle than it did on the nail. Not really satisfied. But it's okay.

Sinful Colors - Cinderella
This is a color from SC that got really popular, but I can't really understand why because it is soooo sheer and annoying to apply. I put on 4 thick coats and it was still sheer, not to mention too thick to dry.
I gave this away. Not a fan.

Savina - Purple Hologram 
This is an old swatch, sorry for the crappy pictures. Cute pink polish with pink glitter and holo glitter. I think this is three coats.

There you go! That gets some clutter out of my swatch folders. But there is still a lot of unposted crap in there... Ah!
Have a lovely evening!

Do you love my holiday blog layout?! I sure do!!


  1. These are all pretty colors!! Sorry about the formula of Cinderella :(. The layout looks great!

  2. very pretty swatches! :) love the layout! ^.^

  3. I agree on Cinderella. It is pretty but not pretty enough for the trouble. I wore it one time and never again. It was SO thick by the time I got it opaque and I hate how my nails looked like tiny flitted up pillows lol

  4. The first thing that caught my eyes when I clicked on this post is Your Holiday Layout!!! OOoh oOOH so pretty!!! Love it so much holiday mood in it!! Kinda got me thinking I might wanna change my background for the holiday mood too - but I know i'd get too lazy and leave it as it is.

    Anyway great swatches! I took a particular interest in Essie Pretty Edgy. Kinda a green shade I'm looking for. Such a lovely green. I don't get names that don't match the colour of their polish *looking at Purple Hologram* o.O

    1. go for the layout! it's so much fun! im glad you like mine :)

  5. I think most people layer Cinderella over a similar color. The pink shimmer really makes it nice :)

    1. That's my suggestion, I thought it worked really well with ChG Kinetic Candy.

  6. I need pretty much all of these, but Purple Hologram is particularly awesome!

  7. Thanks for sharing these great swatches, the colors are all great! I enjoy your blog so much that I nominated you for a Sunshine Award. Thanks also for being an inspiration!

    Have a great day!!

    Leslie (*^_^*)

  8. Love Purple Hologram and Panda-monium!

  9. I love Panda-monium Pink and Purple Hologram! Try sandwiching Periwinkle Princess if you aren't really feeling it... I think it could make a pretty glitter sandwich!

  10. Panda-monium Pink is one of my fav pinks from OPI! I can't wait to wear it again in the spring :). The Orly and Savina polishes also look very nice. Cinderella is one of my untrieds, but not I'm not sure if I really want to try it or not.

  11. I had the exact same feeling about Sinful Colors Cinderella!!

  12. uhh LOVE the layout ;)
    these are cute. pretty edgy is a fav.

  13. Loving the holiday background you have going on!!
    These swatches are making me drool! I have a whole new wishlist now!
    This post is a good way to show pretty polishes that don't need a whole post to themselves, I might need to start this soon. Thanks for sharing the swatches Rebecca!

  14. None of these pics are crappy- I wish my pics looked as good as these! Panda-Monium Pink is one of my favorite OPIs and I almost bought Savina Purple Hologram and put it back. I am regretting that choice...

  15. Loving Shockwave and the classic Cinderella for certain occasions

  16. I love the Sation one, it's beautiful! Reminds me of one of my first nail polishes by Rimmel back in the 'day. Great swatches!x

  17. Yes, the layout is ADORABLE :) I was so excited to see that one of my favorite nail blogs went Christmas-y! Love it!

  18. Love at First Lavender reminds me of Essie Splash of Grenadine (one of my favorite colors EVER). They're in the same pink-purple limbo.

    And I love the Christmas look! :)
