A Few Swatches

Swatches today! So we have Barry M - Black Multi Glitter, Paris Memories - 228, and a nameless FCUK polish that I got a while back, which I really want to try with stamping as it's so opaque.

First up is the FCUK polish. It's a gorgeous deep purple with blue shimmer. It looks a tad bluer in these photos than in real life. Two coats; no top coat:


Next up is a single shot of Paris Memories - 228. It's such a runny polish I decided to layer it over black as it would never be opaque on its own. This is 2 coats of black, and one coat of Paris Memories on super-shorites! I love the effect this polish has.
And lastly, a polish that slightly disappointed. I thought Barry M - Black Multi Glitter was going to be amazeballs. Looking at the bottle, and the one swatch shot I found at the time of purchase I was expecting the micro glitter to be more visible on the nail. But I guess macro shots make glitter prettier. That being said, my swatches suck. But I have some better sparkle shots from my batman nails that i'll be posting soon :]
It had a slightly gritty texture before top coat, and the glitter didn't shine at all
This is two coats, no top coat, the other two pictures have a coat of China Glaze - No Chip Top Coat
My ring finger, you can see more of the colours.
Ah! Look at the party in the bottle, shame about it not being so much of a party on my nails. But it's still pretty, even though it's subtle.

Well there's today's swatches :] On Saturday you'll be graced with the presence of my friend Vicki's nails, or maybe tomorrow, depending how much concentration I have left in me :P

I hope you're all having a good Thursday ^-^

    1. I've found it comes more to life with a different top coat, but that shouldn't really be the case, should it.
