Orly Fowl Play Swatches & Review

It's already mid June, time really flies eh? I am a bit lagging behind on my 2012 resolution, hopefully I still can meet my goal in the remaining 6 months :)

Hmm, today I have Orly Fowl Play from Orly's Birds of a Feather Collection to show you. This color was not a love at first sight for me, I was initially eyeing on Nite Owl from the same collection but ended up getting this. I am glad I have made the right choice the moment I paint it on my nail. 

This is a very complicated color, it is a bit jelly-ish dark purple with flakies, glitters.. Okay, I know I am lousy at description, let the pictures do the talking. :)

Pardon my dry cuticle. I went to a saloon which I have never visited before for manicure and pedicure last week. Not sure what they did to my nail, my skin around my cuticle had became so dry and started peeling. But my toes are fine, so it taught me a lesson to carefully choose manicurists next time. I was a bit regretted of signing the pedicure package with them, or I should be happy that I had only signed pedicure package.. lol

All these photos are taken under sunlight, you could see the multi-color flakies/glitters that is absolutely stunning! 

Here a a macro shot to give you a better idea

How do you think of this color? I am totally in love with it. I think you wouldn't want to miss this if you love purple or dark polish. I swear it looks much better in real life. :)

Some bloggers had done a color comparison of this color with OPI Merry Midnight that had been discontinued. You may want to get this if you have missed the OPI one like myself. Check out the comparison posts here and here

Have a great weekend! :)

China Glaze Prism Swatch & Review

It's Friday! How have everyone been? Seems like I have taken a way too long break since my last post. My apology of being such a indiscipline person.

Today I am going to show you a quick post on China Glaze Prism from the Prismatic collection. It is a purple based packed with blue, yellow, silver and pink holographic round glitter. I think I see some green too. 

 These are 3 coats with no top coat.

 Here is a close up shot on how the color looks like

It is a very happy color that reminds me of confetti. 

From the bottle, you could see how much glitter are packed in the bottle.

This formula is a bit sheer and I think it might be perfect for layering. Of course removing this color has to be super patient by using the foil method.

What do you think about this color?
