The second design has a purple background! :)) well i gave it a try since i rarely use my purple nail polishes! The design has parallel flower designs and different shaped leaves to go with it.

image

Since my nails aren’t that long to make the pattern on each one of them… i chose the flowers/leaves that i was going to do on my nail :)

Here’s the finish product!

I’ve been wanting to do something freehand during the past months but I couldn’t find what to draw on my nails. Then i saw this…

image

Seeing this book was a relief from the times that i wanted to do something intricate. something detailed. something freehand; but fast and easy.

Thank you to Liz de Asis for giving me this paper book!

I bought these minis months ago from Polished in the city. and i swatch on my spare time or if i can’t think of a design for my nails….  and i forgot to upload everything that i have swatched. haha thank God after thesis i had time to fix and organize my harddrive i’m not yet done  and i saw these pictures of swatches hanging around.

So better late than never!

I have a lot of nail polish sets to swatch. This is one of them :) so stay tuned for the others! :))

I have been wanting to have textured polishes. BUT i never thought i would get it when i bought this set :)) *coz i didn’t read the box even though it’s written there* I thought it would be normal non-textured polish. and i didn’t think that textured polishes came in little bottles.. but I was wrong :)))  the typical hoarder of cute bottled nailpolishes that i am. :)) 

so let’s start!

with JINX. of the four polishes that came in the set.. jinx is my favorite! it’s a reddish orange with pink and gold textured sparkles. it doesn’t even look textured in the picture unless you look very very closely because of the sparkles. this is 2 coats of the nail polish. 

image

VESPER. vesper has less of the “texture” than the others in one coat.. its texture stuff is black and the base is a dark purple. i really like the purple but it was too sheer for one coat. this is three coats of the polish. and even in three coats you can still see bald spots.

image

PUSSY GALORE. this textured polish is very very girly. it’s nice replacement for a nude polish if you don’t want something bright! baby pink polish with a little umph! :)) this is two coats of the polish. it has a satin textured finish to it!

image

SOLITAIRE. is white with little silver glitters combined with the texture stuff of the polish. perfect if you want that hint of sparkle :) i always see this as a typical white textured polish but the random sparkles really does make a difference

image

SHOULD YOU BUY IT?

YES! i think it is a good set for someone who would like to try out these textured polishes.. 

IS IT WORTH IT?

it costs Php650 in Polished in the city (here!) so Php162.5 per mini bottle. when i first started getting these, i think it costs a lot for a mini bottle .. but i realized that i can’t finish the minis! even though i kept using them! :) so i think it’s worth it! plus, it’s O.P.I.!
