*All photos are taken indoors under 30W Daylight Bulbs with a Canon DSLR Camera.
*I angle my hand in direct lighting as well as low lighting to capture as many of the shifts as I am able.
*All photos shown with a fast dry top coat unless otherwise stated.
*All Magnetic Particles in a polish disperses over time, in my experience 9 times out of 10 I am unable to keep a thin, crisp line to stay put (unless using a gel magnetic polish); my photos are shown with a 20+ minute dry time so the magnetic line may seem more crisp then if I were to have kept the polish on for longer.

This is a 2 in 1 base coat that is formulated with proteins to fill imperfections and ridges on the surface of the nail leaving you with a smooth even base ready for polish.

  19. You always have the best swatches. The only thing that would make them even better would be if you put a one line description of the color under the polish name. My favorite this month is Garden Path Lacquer. I love the ethereal looking ones.

  20. Gorgeous swatches, as always. The Garden Path is gorgeous and I think I like it on its own more than I would if it were over black, but the Night Owl Lacquer is just gorgeous. I also love the SWP crellie.

  21. So many great polishes. I'm feeling Red Hot Agent, Spooky Mulder, and Through the Smoke the most, I think. The Night Owl Lacquer is really tempting though and that GITD polish is awesome with two coats coverage. So excited for the plate!
