Today I have e.l.f nail polish wheel swatches for you.
I'm going to show you half of the wheel in this post
and do the other half in an other post because
this is going to be PICTURE HEAVY!

Mango Madness, Champagne, Mod Mauve - Light Tent
Mango Madness, Champagne, Mod Mauve - Natural Light
1. Light Pink
2. Pearl Pink
3. Sunset
4. Berry Pink
5. Passion Pink
6. Fluorescent Pink
7. Mango Madness
8. Champagne
9. Mod Mauve

 None of the polishes are really high gloss.
The cream polishes are the shiniest of the bunch.
Swatches are 2 Coats if not mentioned othervise. No Top Coat.
  1. Light Pink - How should I describe this... Kinda like a cream finish with silver shimmer, if that makes any sense.
  2. Pearl Pink - Subtle duo chrome just haven't figured out the other tone. Pearl finsih.
  3. Sunset - Pearl finish with micro shimmer.  Similar finnish to Pearl Pink.
  4. Berry Pink - Frost finnish with silver shimmer.
  5. Passion Pink -  A mix of Frost and Pearl finish. At first I thought I had mixed up the name with Fluorescent pink because this is brighter.
  6. Fluorescent Pink - Not a cream, not a Pearl, not a Frost
  7. Mango Madness - Cream finish. 3 Coats
  8. Champagne
  9. Mod Mauve - Cream finish
  10. Chocolate - Cream finish
  11. Blush - Pearl finish
  12. Moonlight - Pearl finish
  13. Desert Haze - Cream finish
  14. Innocent - Cream finish. 3 Coats
  15. Fair Pink - Cream finish
  16. Pearl - Pearl finish
  17. Metall Madness - Small glitter in a dark metall grey base. Gritty, needs a good top coat.
  18. Mint cream - Cream finish. 4 Coats because it is the most "watery" of them all. I have used almost all of it to blend (franken) one of my favorite mint colors.
I found it hard describing the finish. Maybe you have the same
e.l.f nailpolishes and could help me with this.
What do you have to say about the finish of these nail polishes?
And what is the difference between Satin and Frost finish?
Does any of these polishes have what you call Frost or Satin finish?
