Happy Monday guys!

How was everyone’s weekend? I got a bunch of blogging stuff done, so I’m pretty content with how mine went. But let’s kick off the start of another work week with some more Love, Angeline swatches!

Name: Don’t Ruffle My Feathers

Description: Fern green, glitter crelly with pink hex and yellow square glitter.

Number of Coats: Two coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Fairly thick, so the second layer will cover the glitter laid down in the first layer.

Dry Time: Each layer dried in about five minutes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

Don’t Ruffle My Feathers was released in a 2014 Blogger Collection and was created by the blogger turned Instagrammer, Luster Lacquer. I really love it when brands do collections with bloggers, because I think it’s interesting to see what the people who spend a ton of time swatching polishes would actually create when given the chance! Everyone has different tastes so the collections are usually pretty diverse which makes them fun. But back to this polish! I think this a great polish for Spring and I can’t wait to use this one as a base for some floral manicures! My only critique is that it is thick, so you don’t get a build up of glitter with each layer because the top one covers the bottom one. That being said, there is a good amount of glitter pay off with each layer so it isn’t a huge deal.

Name: Carry On

Description: Grey crelly filled with gold shimmer and flakies.

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Slightly thick, but the flakies have a tendency to sink to the bottom of the bottle. This one applies sheer on the first coat, but builds up nicely.

Dry Time: Each layer dried in about ten minutes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

This polish was released as part of a 2014 Pipe Down this Love is Bliss box (I’m not sure whether it’s from the March or April one, but one of those two.) This is probably one of my favorite grey polishes in my collection, and I definitely don’t give it enough love! I prefer cooler greys like this one, and the gold bits help give some visual interest to a normally kind of plain color. This polish is like the one above where you don’t really get a build up of the flakies, because the layers cover each other but again, it’s not a huge deal.

I used vinyls again, woo! I’m not totally sure what inspired this look, but I’m liking the outcome haha.

This next look was inspired by this pattern designed by Wendy Kendall! This might actually be one of my favorite nail art looks from this year. I don’t know why, but I love this!

You guys should probably already expect this at this point, but sadly, both of these polishes are not available for purchase. I actually picked up both of these from destash sales!
