Swatches of some recent purchases with names I could tie together in a funny way...
First up is China Glaze Paper Chasing
This one is outdoors in natural light. I decided to add a coat of New York Summer Lime Glitter on the ring finger just to see how it would look. I flippin' love Paper Chasing and I can't believe I didn't buy it before now. It's a little bit brighter than primary green, super shiny and the formula on this one was perfect. Not too think or thick, two coats was adequate but I went with three cuz that's just what I do.
Next up are Nina Ultra Pro in Mermaid and In A Tiff:
Mermaid is an odd color. It's extremely sheer and the color is a yellow green shimmer that flashes gold, green, yellow and pearl. I put 5 coats on my pinky.
In A Tiff is Ultra Pro's take on the Tiffany blue polish trend.. It has a slight shimmer which makes it different from all of the other polishes I have in variations of the same color. This is 3 coats no top coat.
You can kinda see the shimmer and flashes of gold and pearl in this picture but it was very difficult to capture on the camera.
Ummm yeah, I screwed up the polish on my index finger trying to make my hand not look so damn awkward in this picture. I always feel like I don't know how to place my fingers on the bottle and let's just say I'm not the most graceful of creatures so yeah, this is my awkward hand pose : )
There you have it, a paper chasing mermaid in a tiff!
