Random Swatch Spam (Zoya, OPI, Catrice...)

I was really in the mood for swatching this past weekend and trying out different combinations and layering techniques as well as some of the colors I have bought but have not worn.

Let's start off with Ulta Deck the Halls, a silver, scattered, holographic glitter, layered over Essence What Do U Think?.

Here's what Deck the Halls looks like in the bottle:
(Blurred to show holo effect)
Next we have OPI Silver Shatter layered over CCUK Midnight Blue. I prefer Silver Shatter when it looks more metallic rather than glitzy and glittery so here it is with no topcoat:

Then it's the beautiful Zoya Gemma, a subtle olive green with blue/violet shimmer. I really love this color and suggest that everyone has something this unique in their collection! I've been wearing this alone since Saturday:

Next is the beautiful Catrice Big Spender Wanted! This is my second Catrice nail polish and I am very impressed with their formula. I especially love this one because of the pretty gold shimmer, not to mention that I've never had a frost-like polish with this good of a formula:

Last, we have Claire's Poison Apple. This is supposed to be a dupe for MAC's Bad Fairy but considering it's poor excuse for a duo-chrome, I'm guessing it isn't. Not only was it sheer, but the pretty copper and orange you see in the bottle is trapped there. It barely transfers to the nails.

But wait, is that a little duo-chrome I see?

I think my favorites from the bunch are Zoya Gemma and Catrice Big Spender Wanted. Which are your favorites?


  1. I have Poison Apple but I haven't worn it as a full mani yet.

    I am so jealous how good your manicures look, so clean! And your pictures are so great too!

  2. @Forever'92 Aw, thanks girl! I always spend forever making sure I don't leave a mess all over my cuticles. Lol. I'm crazy.
