HI GUYS!

Long time, no talk D: I totally did not intend to disappear, but my allergies are acting up/ I’m sick (maybe) and work has been kind of crazy again so I haven’t had much time to blog. BUT, I’m determined to get this post up tonight. SO LET’S DO THIS!

On to the Love, Angeline swatches!

Name: Emerald City

Description: Dark green jelly-like creme.

Number of Coats: Two coats (one thin, one thick.)

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Slightly uneven due to the jelly-likeness, but coverage is build-able.

Dry Time: Still dent-able at ten minutes.

Staining: Yes! Skin, cuticles, and nails if worn for more than a few hours (even with two coats of Yellow Stopper underneath.)

Wear Time: I accidentally fell asleep with this swatch on and probably ended up wearing this for about 12 hours. I did experience a chip but I was wearing a base of Yellow Stopper and my nails have been rather weak lately, so I’m not entirely sure if it usually wears like that.

I’m pretty sure I was still in the process of figuring out my lighting setup when I did these swatches, because these photos are looking a little weird….ANYWAYS. POLISH! Emerald City is another oldie from Love, Angeline and was released in her 2013 Deep In The Enchanted Forest Collection. I actually don’t own many indie brand cremes or plain-colored jellies (probably because Zoya will always be my favorite for those,) but yeah. The color of this polish is really lovely, but it stains like crazy (my nails have a yellow, green tint to them now since doing this swatch D: ) and I’m not very good at applying jelly-like polishes, so I’m a little meh about this polish.

Name: Tomorrow Night’s Sky

Description: Dark navy, blue jelly-like creme.

Number of Coats: Two coats (one thin, one thick.)

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Slightly uneven due to the jelly-likeness, but coverage is build-able.

Dry Time: Still dent-able at ten minutes.

Staining: This stained my cuticles and skin while I was removing it, and if it’s anything like it’s above sister I’m going to assume that it would stain your nails. I’d recommend being safe and wearing a double layer of base coat.

Wear Time: n/a (only worn long enough to swatch.)

This is another polish that was part of the 2013 Deep In The Enchanted Forest collection. My thoughts on this polish are pretty much the same as the one above. If I remember correctly, this polish is a stainer and the jelly-like formula is kind of hard to get totally even. The next time I use this, I’ll definitely stick to three thin coats instead of one thin and one thick to avoid bubbles. I will say that I really enjoy this color though, but I’m a sucker for blue polishes!

Now, it’s time for some nail art!

I felt kind of weird showing such dark shades in the middle of the Summer, but I thought painting some floral on top makes it totally okay? Right? Please say right, because that’s what happened haha. This look was inspired by this print by Ashley Goldberg!

Now, this might be one of my favorite looks in a while. It’s fairly simple, but it looks so cool! This design was inspired by this print by Tracie Andrews.
