Zoya – Kotori

Swatch: Zoya - Kotori (layered over black)

Zoya – Kotori looks gorgeous in the bottle. Black with irregular shaped blue shimmer. Very pretty! BUT unfortunately this beauty is very sheer. Even if you put on like 4 or even five coats, you wont get a deep black base with blue shimmer. That’s why you should ALWAYS layer this beauty! See, what I mean? It’s way better layered ...

Barry M – Instant Nail Effects (crackle polish)

Swatches: Barry M: Indigo, Red Glitter, Navy

I’m sure most of you already know, what a crackle polish is. For those of you, who don’t know. A crackle polish is a polish that cracks while drying. It’s a cool effect. I like it very much!

Color Club: With Abandon and Wild and Willing

Color Club: With Abandon, Wild and Willing

Color Club‘s With Abandon is a very nice nail polish. It has a bit sheer black base and gold irregular shaped shimmer. As mentioned it’s a bit sheer. I only needed two coats for full opacity, but if you have longer nails, you’ll probably need three coats. You’ll also need a shiny top coat, because it dries a bit dull. ...
