Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black Swatched

233 Chunky Holo Teal, 236 Chunky Holo Black and 133 Sheer Red - Light Tent

The Sheer Red is going to be interesting to try. It does look more
red in the bottle but is more pink on the nail, atleast the nail wheel.
Two thin coats of each nail polish, without top coat. Natural light.

Wet n Wild Swatched

Here comes swatches of the Wet n Wild palettes showed in THIS POST.
I swatched them yesterday and this morning I did my eye-makeup using them.
I'm sorry, but I don't have a photos as I was in a hurry in the morning, and did
not have time to take pictures. And I was busy when I got home and then I just
forgot. But I just have to say WOW. I'm in LOVE. The pigmentation is excelent.
Staying power is great. Only regret is that I should have tried Wet n Wild sooner.

 Lust Swatched with no primer. Photos taken in daylight. I love it that
there is three completely matte shades in this palette. The lightest shade,
top right, is great as a browbone shade. Will use it alot even though it has
some small glitter particles in it. The dark shadow, bottom right, is not overly
shimmery/glittery eather, as I first thought. The plum shade, middle left, might
come off as too red in the photo, top photo shows more accurate color.



Nutty is a great medium brown for blending out darker colors.
Or could be used as a lid color. Not overly shimmery. More of a frost.

Silent Treatment

Silent Treatment has a perfect browbone color for me. Nice
frosty shadows. The glitter in the crease color is not over powering,
but rather discrete, and the eyeshadow seems to be matte othervise. And
the eyelid color is just a nice soft and smooth shade. This palette is a favorite.

Silent Treatment

Sweet As Candy has nice frosty eye shadows. This is like a daytime
palette. And Silent Treatment is the night time palette. Browbone color
is a nice hightligting color and the lid color is a nice soft smooth shade
This palette is going to be a lot in use along with Silent Treatment.

Sweet As Candy

If you like softer colors get Sweet As Candy. If you are
more into dark shades, go for Silent Treatment. And keep
in mind that I am really pale. So these palettes might not look
like this on you at all. Lust was the darkest palette of them all.

Sweet As Candy

Did I tip the scales for you with the swatches?

An other eyeshadow and Polish Haul

It's about time I got me some Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes. Can't wait to
try them out and swatch them for you. A back-up of Konad Top Coat went into
my shopping cart at as well as three China Glaze polishes.
I got a shell shaped "Thank you"-gift, that I don't know what it is. Do you?

China Glaze - Sunset Sail is from Spring 2011 Anchors Away Collection.
The two others are from the New 2012 Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection.

The Sleek Palettes are Au Naturel and
Monaco from the Mediterranean Collection.

Do you have any favorite Sleek products you can recommend?

Polish and Eyeshadow Haul

Kleancolor Nail Polishes

Finally I took the plunge and got me some Kleancolor polishes to play with.
I've been wanting the Metallics for about a year. These are my first Kleancolors.
There were so many polishes I wanted from that it would have
been a huge package. Luckily I got over the worst glitter mania and my list of
polishes got reduced. And I was able to place my first order. Somehow I still
managed to get a few glitter polishes. How that happened I do not know.

China Glaze, L.A. Glitter and NYX Nail Polishes

The hype for China Glaze Prismatic 2012 Collection went flat kinds quick when
the swatches did not meet the anticipation. However I wanted to have a closer look
at one of the polishes, Optical Illusion. The Holographic word was thrown around,
but NO, these are NOT holographic/prismatic. And my first NYX and L.A. Glitters.

Wet n Wild Eyeshadows

Wet n Wild Palettes is something I've been wanting to try for a while.
Now I have three of them and one single shadow. Yes, I know, boring
neutral colors. I guess I'm getting old. But I know I WILL use these up.

What is your most recent haul?
Have you been able to kill any lemmings?

Left to Right: Black Halo, Ocean Blue, Gold Holgraphic, Deep Purple Halo and Emerald Green.

We have come to the third post of many about the Pearls and Flakes
from Custom Painting Pearls. Don't forget to tell your girl friends about
these products. And don't forget your boyfriend or husband or anyone else
for that matter who would be interested in painting their ride. I mean if your
boyfriend gets some for the car - then you can get some for your polish.

Flakes painted on Black

Here comes the names of the Flakes (Glitters):

14. Black Halo Flake
15. Ocean Blue Flake
16. Gold Holgraphic Flake
17. Deep Purple Halo Flake
18.Emerald Green Flake
19. Silver Holographic Flake

Flakes painted on Black. Blurred to see the glittery awesomeness

Garry from Custom Painting Pearls told me that they are going to add
a Nail Page onto their website:  www.CustomPaintingPearls.Com
And the new page will be up by Monday 27th 2012. There you will find
listings for 3 gram sample bags of any 3 products for $12.99

The 3 grams will get you a few bottles of polish as you
only need a few scoops with a straw to get you one done.

And if I can get my act togeather and get great photos of the products, that
was sent to me for review, he said he will use my photos. How exciting is that.

Painted with Flake on paper.

There is two thing that you need to know about the Flakes, they might bleed.
They did on me, but I used a cheap clear polish for this. And they sink if you
don't have suspension base. I didin't so I added one mixing ball, as big as
would fit through the hole, and I give them a good shake before I use them.
You need to add top coat, atleast when they are mixed in cheap clear coat.

Painted with Flake on paper.

Below is a photos showing when the flakes/glittes have sunk to the
bottom and showing how they tinted my base. I think it looks gorgeous.
This is photos of bottles that have been sitting for 2 days. I do not know
how much of the color from the flakes will bleed into the polish over
time. But this is absolutely something for Jelly and Glitter lovers.

5. Carribean Blue to Green, 6. Bronze to Green, 7. Green to Violet and 8. Blue, Purple, Red to Orange.

Have you been waiting for bottle pictures and swatches of the
Flip/Shift Pearls and the Chameleon I showed in THIS POST?
get excited when I look at these pictures and I hope you do too.

Pearls and Flakes painted on a clear nail.
 Here are the names of the Pearls:
1. Yellow to Green
2. Sunrise Red to Midnight Blue
3. Green to Gold
4. Pink to Gold
5. Carribean Blue to Green
6. Bronze to Green
7. Green to Violet
8. Blue, Purple, Red to Orange (Chameleon)

I'll do a separate post presenting the Flake/Glitters
because I don't want too many photos in the posts.

Pearls and Flakes painted over Black.



I'll start by showing you the Chameleon Pearl that shifts in four colors.
It's the bottle on the far right in the top photo. Nail number 8 on the wheels.

Over Black: 5. Carribean Blue-Green, 6. Bronze-Green, 7. Green-Violet and 8. Blue-Purple-Red-Orange.

Middle nails are done one coat of the Chameleon over Black. Pinky is 1
coat over White. Index finger is 2 coats over White. Top coat on all nails.
Photo is taken in natural light. On the lighther nails you can clearly see the
orange to red shift. On the darker nails you can see the blue more clearly.
The color flip/shift of course depends on what angle you are looking from. 

 What colors would you like to see next?
