It’s finally warm in the UK, spring is giving way to summer, apart from the past couple of days which were more like November! My summer dresses are out, and I want some bright, pretty nails to go with them! I had my eyes on plenty of summer polishes in yesterday’s best of nail polish post, so Picture Polish Orchid is perfect for right now.
This is a very long overdue swatch post, but it has some bonus nail art which I hope you enjoy. This time I have Chanel Rouge Red 546 from the spring 2017 collection.
Every year it seems, Chanel come out with a new red polish. They have subtly different colour undertones, so if you already know what suits your skin tone, this should help you make a decision between them.
I’m finally back with some new Chanel Spring 2017 swatches and these posts are always really popular content here. I thought that the colours they chose were more autumnal than spring-like, but Chanel have a new-ish creative director, so maybe that’s why. The last few collections, like Summer 2016, were kind of unexpected shades, unlike some of the candy-inspired colours you expect at this time of year.
I got so excited when I saw this polish was available through Rainbow Connection. It’s full of glitters that change colour depending on the angle you see them from. This is my first polish from this brand, and it’s inspired by Friends. Native War Paints The One With The… is a beautiful polish.
I’ve really been into my galaxy-themed swatches recently, and here’s another. Based on 2001: A Space Odyssey, this collaboration from The Nailista Shop is lovely. Picture Polish 2001 is a grey-blue scattered holo definitely reminds me of a far away place.
As I promised some time ago, I’ve got another FUN Lacquer swatch for you, also based on a constellation. Cepheus is a very old constellation which contains nebulae and remains of old stars. If you’ve got a few minutes to google image search, it’s well worth your time. Much like the constellation, FUN Lacquer Cepheus has so many colours in it. A grey-taupe jelly base, with holographic particles and multicoloured flakies, it’s a stunner.
This is FUN Lacquer Ursa Major named after a constellation also known as The Plough or The Big Dipper. Here’s a little known fact about me: at school I did my science exams a year early, so in my final year I did a GCSE in Astronomy! It was very cool, with a few practical projects as well.
In case you missed it, here’s a round up of the Chanel Nail Polish Holiday 2016 Swatches I posted a couple of weeks ago. You will have to be quick if you want one, since these are limited edition polishes! I’ve linked through to my full reviews of each one if you’d like to know more.
I realised recently that I didn’t have a good neon blue polish. In fact I didn’t have a true neon blue polish at all. Some of them were bright, but there was nothing that glows under UV light, which is the sign of a true neon. I asked around forums and groups for recommendations, but came across Cirque Rehab which it turns out is my Perfect Neon Blue Polish.
