Another jade green colour, but this one contains a visible proportion of blue (although not as prominent as in the swatch pics).
Two coats. This is a short post, I know. But I’ve been enjoying the really hot weather, including tons of ice cream. 🙂 Need to catch up with my work a bit …
I love yellow shades. 🙂 Hook up has a shimmer finish too.
But I needed thress coats to achieve opaqueness … nevertheless, it’s a pretty colour.
Upon browsing older swatches, I found this one – Orly Le Chateau, a dark green with a jelly finish. In the bottle, it looks almost black.
But one coat shows that Le Chateau is in fact green. 🙂
This is two coats.
Here’s a small mint green collection (although Nouvelle Vague has a greater proportion of blue, it’s not really mint green, though), just for comparison. 🙂
Essie Mint Candy Apple – Essie Turquoise & Caicos – Orly Ancient Jade – Eyeko Vintage – Essence Viva La Green – Chanel Nouvelle Vague
Found this on Elena’s Blog, Pictured Tinsel, a while ago and needed to have it, since it’s purple, or, to be more precise, Velvet Rope is a metallic purple with silver micro glitter. Shown below is the miniature version of this varnish.
For the swatches, I did two coats.
Found this on my hard disk drive… multicoloured glitter in various sizes and shapes in a blackened jelly base. I’ve got the mini bottle of Androgynie, which belongs to Orly’s Holiday Soirée Collection of Holiday 2011.
Two coats, I guess. I’m going to apply it again next week, I love this polish! Missed out lots of glitter when swatching Androgynie. 😦
Basically, Pixie Dust reminds of Mirror Mirror (both are from the Once Upon A Time collection, that’s why it comes with another charm, a fairy), but it is more a medium grey with a hint of blue, containing sparkly flakies in a quite opaque jelly base.
Yesterday I had a little chat with Pictured Tinsel‘s Elena about this one… @Elena, I’m sure you’ll like Pixie Dust! Looking forward to seeing your swatches. 🙂
Two coats, artificial light.
