Polish playroom

I started out playing a game of solitaire with just a deck of peachy nudes, but this soon morphed into pulling out other long-neglected toys, which I thought to share with you…

Summertime roundup: now complete with swatches

Done! And I even found some unintended PFFs in the bunch. This could be a never-ending endeavor, one I wish I hadn’t begun

I’ll first show you the Polish Friends Forever I’ve discovered. I worked very hard on swatching and listing the Summertime Roundup nail wheel colors (two coats each!), but wasn’t impressed with the overall images. The PFFs are more interesting…

So here we have Sinful Colors 1258 Eva So Bright, Sinful Colors 108 Timbleberry and Catrice Revoltaire LE C03 Colour Bomb. Eva So Bright is just a wee bit lighter than Timbleberry, and Timbleberry has greater opacity and saturation than Colour Bomb. Aside from that, declared total PFFs…

On the nail wheel, the order is reversed. From L to R: Colour Bomb, Timbleberry, Eva So Bright.

PFFs Eva So Bright, Timbleberry, Colour Bomb

Next up, Essence Fantasia TE 02 Queen of My Cloud Castle and Chanel 549 Distraction. Both are medium salmon pink-orange with fine hot pink shimmer. Essence looks like it has some additional silver veining as well; it’s slightly brighter and flashier than Chanel on the nail wheel, but not by much…

This last set of PFFs sort of tagged along with the herd of glitters, multichromes and shimmers that have just a touch of orange or copper or whatever (in case you’re wondering what they’re doing here!)…

Nail wheel, L to R:
Loradew Better Girl 14 – largest shimmer particles and brightest of the group, most pink-red
Catrice 22 Bricky Mouse – very close to OPI GGTS, larger shimmer particles and a bit rosier toned
OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes – fine shimmer sheen, darker and browner base color than Bricky Mouse
Sinful Colors 1110 Pandora – leans most rust-toned of the group, with least visible shimmer
