All Tea - a bright but deep purple holo with a slight chrome shift to red/pink in the shade, clear galaxy glitters and a splash of orange/lime iridescent glitters
Both of the colors actually caught my attention in the bottle for looking so...smooth and buttery. It's hard to put it into words but All Tea just gave off this luxuriant feeling. There was a "ChroMetallics" collection released from Nvr Enuff not that long ago and I wonder if these two are similar.
The application was the same smooth buttery one that I suspected, and I barely needed clean up. I think I should just admit to myself that I will always have to clean up because of my sidewalls. I once compared fingers with some friends irl and was like "why do they look like chubby sausages compared to yours??" so I try to keep them with some nail length to keep the attention on the polish ;)
I was impressed that at 2 coats I got such good coverage with this! Definitely makes for a quick mani application
No Shade - a deep teal holo with a slight chrome shift to red/pink in the shade, clear galaxy glitters and a splash of orange/lime iridescent glitters
Look at that bottle shot! There's that shifty shimmer!!
Again, this is just 2 coats and top coat.
Teal is among my favorite colors so I was so happy to get another gorgeous one in my collection. Check out the corners of the bottle - it's like a bright lime shimmer hiding there
Same with the cuticle area - I guess this would be called "extreme angles" but whatever it is, I want more of it!
Then with some direct light, the shimmer I see is like an icy blue..I called hubby in for help here, he confirmed the lime green but with this one said "I see white on top of that green"..so..I don't know what to tell you, I'm no expert on light diffraction,and physics was a long time ago for me!!
Bottom line - beautiful teal color with some shifty stuff hiding in it
I tried to sneak in a little bit of art while I'm swatching. I know it's delaying my completion but I just can't break the habbit, and I have a huge stash of stamping plates so using them is justification for owning them ;)
Just silver stamping for this one, plate is Uber Chic Fairytale 01, stamping polish is Sinful Colors - Casablanca
I wanted to stick with the same stamping plate but didn't find more inspiration, so teal ended up being nautical..the color just seemed like it needs to be ocean related
Plate is Lina Born to Sail 01 - I got this for review some time ago and think summer vibes are finally bringing inspiration.
Polishes are: Sinful Colors - Casablanca, Bundle Monster - Straight up Black, and BornPretty Store gold # 22320
Again, this will be available on pre-order until the 16th, so plenty of time to pick it up! I've got more to show so check back in!
Winter is Here is a 6 piece, so it will likely be on IG first while I'm swatching and compiling the next post but it definitely will be up before end of the week!
