SwatchWeek – Day 5 – Revlon

It’s the last day of SwatchWeek! We made it! I survived a whole week of swatching polishes at my parents house with inadequate lighting. I think that’s a Christmas miracle in itself. I honestly had a lot of fun doing this, and it allowed me to try out the polishes of lesser known brands I had sitting in my collection. I definitely have some new favorites! I hope to do this again sometime.

Now let’s get on in to the final day of SwatchWeek! Today I have 6 polishes from Revlon. These are their normal polishes from their core line. Some of these I did find discounted down to $2, so be sure to watch out in your Walgreens!

Let’s start!

SwatchWeek – Day 4 – Funky Fingers

Hey-o, it’s Day 4 of SwatchWeek! Just one more day after this, tomorrow!

Today I have 5 Funky Fingers polishes to show you! Funky Fingers can be found in Five Below stores (if you don’t have a Five Below near you, I weep for you because they’re so incredible. I specifically go in them for their nail polish, and because they sell discounted City Color Cosmetics makeup. Anyways).

One of my friends, Molly, who I can give some credit to for enabling my nail polish addiction, always had Funky Finger nail polishes, and I was so intrigued. So finally, one day when I went into Five Below, I picked up some polishes.

I have 2 polishes that change color in the sunlight, and then 3 of their normal polishes! The Sunlight polishes were 2/$5 while the normal polishes were 3/$5.

Let’s get into the swatches!

SwatchWeek – Day 3 – Wet ‘N Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel

Welcome back! It’s Day 3 of SwatchWeek – this one is on the correct day, did you notice that? The rest will be as regularly scheduled, so don’t you fret.

Up today, we have some Wet ‘N Wild 1 step gel polishes! These claim to be like gel without the light – but are also in black bottles, so I can only assume they’re more gel-like than other brands. I haven’t been able to truly test how long these last – little hard to do in a SwatchWeek, isn’t it. Someday I’ll test them and be sure to get a wear test out for you!

I have 4 shades from this polish style, and they came in a lovely holiday gift set that I got from my sweet friend Cassi for my birthday. Thanks Cass! You can find the Holiday set still at Walgreens.

There are 3 creams, and 1 one shimmery polish. Let’s get into Day 3!

SwatchWeek – Day 2 – Finger Paints

Welcome to Day 2 – ish. I know this is a day late. Who could have guessed I would get behind on this during break. I can explain, I swear. I had friends visiting during the day so this meant no time to post.

And then, I reshot all of my photos because my lighting was terrible, and now they are much better and more color accurate. I’ll never take my lighting setup back home for granted again.

Don’t you worry, Day 3 will also be coming later today as well.

Onto Day 2!

SwatchWeek – Day 1 – Formula X The Effects Nail Polish

Welcome to SwatchWeek! This whole week, (Monday through Friday) I’ll be uploading new posts of polishes hanging out in my stash that need to be loved. Most, if not all, of these polishes are still available to buy, so last minute Christmas ideas? Yes? Christmas gift ideas for yourself? More likely.

Let’s get into Day 1 with some Formula X!

A while back, when I was in Vegas for a conference, we spent a free day shopping, so of course we wandered to Sephora. I had to *of course* look at the nail polish. Formula X had their ‘Effects’ Nail polishes on sale for $5. FIVE. DOLLARS. These are normally $15 a piece, so I immediately snatched up any colors they had left on display. I got 3 this day.

The Effects are nail polishes of differing textures and finishes.

So let’s get into the swatches!
