Confetti Blue Bombshell Swatches

This a gorgeous color. It absolutely GLOWS in real life. It was pretty sheer, but I still love it. The pictures are with 4 coats. Any green you see in the pics is from the flash. =( It's a deeper blue in real life, no green in it. I wish I could show you how pretty it really is but once again my camera just won't capture it.

This is the most color accurate picture as far as the type of blue it is. It's much deeper and vivid in real life.

These next pictures are washed out a bit but look how glowy it is! Imagine the glow you see in these mixed with the deep blue above.

I am going to try this color again soon using the syrup/ombre technique. I think this color would look awesome like that!

MAC Bad Fairy Swatches

I was lucky enough to snag a bottle of Bad Fairy! Normally I don't buy MAC polishes because they are absurdly overpriced for what they are but this one had me wanting it so bad I actually had multiple dreams about it before it was released. LOL!

I tried my best to capture all of the colors in this polish but once again my pictures aren't the best. I managed to capture most of them but the awesome rusty red color eluded me.

If it weren't for the sheer awesomeness of this color I would HATE this nail polish. The formula sucks so much. The first coat made me cringe. It wasn't the sheerness that bothered me but the awful streaks and bald spots. The polish also seems very dry you have to really glob it on or else it dries midway through painting the nail and creates drag. The 2nd coat helped the streaks but the bald spots were still very visible. Luckily after the 3rd coat it was pretty much opaque but I did have to go back and touch up some bald spots a 4th time. Also, after just one mani, my bottle has a noticeable amount gone. Since I paid $13 for this puny bottle I'm going to have to save it for special occasions. =p

Anyway enough babbling, on to the pictures! This was with Gelous base coat 3-4 coats of Bad Fairy and Color Club Vivid top coat. Please excuse my wonky pointer finger, it broke and is growing back all weird!
