Essie Fall Into Fashion (Mini) Collection

To be honest I wasn't completely thrilled with this new collection with the exception of Sew Psyched and Merino Cool, and since the mini pack included both I just got that. So here are some swatches... well three but you get the idea. All had great application, two coats, no topcoat. My favorite was Merino Cool by far. Sew Psyched didn't drive me crazy.

Avon Swatches

Hey Guys!,
I'm back to posting this weekend, I'm home sick so I had some extra time to swatch.

I bought all of these colors with my own money during a sale where I got them for around 2-3 dollars I think. GREAT DEAL. Watch out for their sales!


two coats, no top coat, thin yet great BUTTERY application. built up beautifully by second coat

LUXE LAVENDER. (not as blue as it appears in pictures)
two coats, no top coat. same as jade in application, thin first coat but perfect by second. And I forgot to mention ALL of these dry VERY quickly and don't even need top coat as you can see

After swatching this one I was messing around and put OPI The Color to Watch (comment and tell me if you want a full swatch of this color-from OPI Swiss Collection) and with China Glaze's Grape Juice. I thought this was great because alone both colors are very sheer and take several coats to build up, so instead I could just put the Luxe Lavender under it and put one coat of the GJ or TCtW on top.
The pointer and middle finger are the color to watch and the other two fingers are grape juice
^sorry I messed up the ring finger.
same as the last two, great application, two coats/ no top coat, dry's fast and glossy

Okay, well I will have a few more posts coming to you but please tell me if you guys want a certain review on something, pleasee! I want you guys emailing me at with requests, opinions, and what you think about the blog in general. Also comment below telling me if you like that I am putting lots of pictures lately, or if you prefer less, or if you want them bigger....

okay well that's about it :) hope you have a great weekend

Soon I will do a full post on my collection but here is a sneak peek. My collection is VERY small considering some of the bloggers out there with two to even more helmers but here is my small part in the blogging world. I have another few in boxes but here is my main stash. Not including top coat, basecoat, and mini polish.

please send me requests, comment tell me what you like hate etc.

Avon Vintage Blue Swatch

I will just bombard you with pictures today. Sorry It's been forever! But I am back for today and let me just tell you I LOVE AVON. If you have the chance buy every color you can get your hands on. I don't regret one color I bought. In my last post you can see that I bought four colors and I am beyond pleased. This is the second time I wear this color (Vintage Blue) as a full manicure and I want to order buckets and buckets of it I love it so much. It's like Essie Mint candy apple almost but this is a pastel blue, not as turquoisey. I will do a comparison soon but on the bottom I have a brief side by side comparison with OPI What's with the Cattitude? another favorite of mine. The formula is amazing this is two coats with out topcoat and I could have easily just done one coat. The brush is amazing, and... AHHH I LOVE EVERYTHING. And in one point of these pictures I am holding a Nail Hardener I recently got and I love it, my nails are like iron, they are so strong and grow so fast, I highly recommend it. Okay, well enjoy the pictures :)
