New Gel Polish Swatches

Hey guys! So for the past couple of months when I wasn't blogging I was still doing gel nails and managed to expand my gel nail polish collection! Here are some swatches just in case anyone else was wondering what these colors looked like. Whenever I buy gel nail polish online I'm always looking for swatches of the colors on a person and sometimes I can't find any decent pictures at all. Mind you, these were taken from my Instagram account so they aren't the best but they at least give you an idea of what they look like

Princess Nails

Here is Pink Smoothie by Gelish and on the ring finger, Tinsel Toast by Shellac. As for the "quilted" design, I used a Konad nail stamp but it can be easily drawn on your own if you're good at holding a nail art brush! I found that both colors go on very smoothly and Pink Smoothie is opaque with 2 coats while Tinsel Toast takes 3 coats to be opaque.

Winter Chic

This manicure I was sporting back in Janurary so it's a nice winter look and I probably wouldn't wear plain black nails like this again during any other time but hey to each their own! On the pointer and middle finger is Gelish Black Shadow, on the ring finger is Gelish Arctic Freeze, and the silver is Gelish Waterfield with silver loose glitter patted on the top. For the snowflake design, I just drew that with a thin nail art brush while looking at a snowflake picture online haha.

 The Definition of Girly

I'd like to call these nails the definition of girly because they're pink and glittery! What else could you ask for? It doesn't even need a design cause it's just so pretty on it's own! I apologize for the horrible quality picture but it looks so much better in real life, not to mention shiny! This is Gelish's High Voltage and goes on opaque after 2 coats. 

Pretty in Mint

Mint green or "Tiffany Blue" as I like to call it, is my favorite color so of course I've been on the lookout for the perfect mint. This is from a new brand I'm trying out called Le Chat and the color is Moon River. As for the ring finger, this time I used a white gel polish as the base and patted loose silver glitter on top. The black gel polish on the middle finger is Gelish's Black Shadow along with a feather that I drew myself haha as you can see it didn't turn out that great. 

Dark Glamour

This is probably one of my all-time favorite manicures because it's so simple yet looks elegant! The maroon color is Gelish Bella's Vampire and the gold is Shellac Tinsel Toast once again but this time with loose gold glitter patted on top. 

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time lovelies,
