Right on the Nail ~ China Glaze The Giver Collection Swatch and Review: Capacity to See Beyond



China Glaze Capacity to See Beyond (2 coats)

For some reason I haven't really been into the latest China Glaze polishes. As a matter of fact, none of the collections really blew me away which is sad since they used to be my favorite brand. Hopefully 2015 brings pretty and unique polishes! I ended up only getting one polish from The Giver Collection and one from the Twinkle Collection. 

Anyway, it's the return of LOBSTER HANDS! Don't let him catch you or he will turn your hands red, too! I love these aqua creme polishes, but they make my camera go crazy. I received lots of praise for this on my Instagram (which you can find me at @rightonthenail) so I know this is a popular shade. And I have no idea about the movie this collection was released for. Did anyone actually see it? It may not be the most unique polish, but it is sure to catch some attention. I had no issues with formula or application in 2 coats. I did have a little bit of bubbling, but I'm pretty sure it was due to a new topcoat I was trying out.

Right on the Nail ~ Sally Hansen Velvet Texture Swatch: Regal



Sally Hansen Regal (2 coats, no topcoat)

Have you seen the new collection from Sally Hansen called the Velvet Texture collection? I heard about it, and finally found it at my local Ulta last week. I only picked up one called Regal which is a royal blue that dries darker on the nail. These dry really fast, and you need to make sure that the first coat is completely dry before doing the second. Also, you should try and make as thin of coats as possible because if they are too thick, they will take much longer to dry and may get dented. These are permanent so I don't think you need to go out and get every single one right now. I honestly don't even know how much I paid for it because I had my 20% off card and I knew I had to get one so I didn't care how much it cost. Oops!

Right on the Nail ~ Barielle Fall 2014 Jetsetter Collection Swatches and Reviews: Midnight in Paris and Rain in Spain

*press samples*


Barielle Midnight in Paris (2 coats)



Barielle Rain in Spain (2 coats)

Happy Friday! Our department holiday party is tonight so I'm decked out in holiday gear (and green fingers, of course). 

I have the final 2 polishes from the Jetsetter collection from Barielle. Both are blues, but very different kinds of blues. Up first is Midnight in Paris which is a navy blue with blue and purple shimmer. Very dark and very opaque. The last polish is Rain in Spain which is a surprise for the collection because it is a very light periwinkle blue pastel color. Pastel and fall usually don't go together, but I like that Barielle stepped out of the box for this one. As always, the formula and application was great on all of them.

Right now Barielle is having a great sale every day. Sign up to get e-mails of their deals here. Their polishes normally run $8, but check the sales or free shipping offers on their Facebook page or Twitter, too.

Right on the Nail ~ Barielle Fall 2014 Jetsetter Collection Swatches and Reviews: Autumn in Seoul and Irish Eyes

*press samples*



Barielle Autumn in Seoul (2 coats)



Barielle Irish Eyes (2 coats)

What screams fall more than a metallic copper polish? Some people are against browns, but Autumn in Seoul may change your mind. Oh, and I Googled it and apparently autumn is the best time to go to Korea. I've been to Seoul 3 times and it was fairly cold every time I was there. Anyway, the formula and application was great in 2 coats, but I've seen others with longer nails say they needed 3. 

We have another green in this collection, but this time it's a darker mossy green creme. It's a little dusty to be a true green for the holidays, but it's close enough. Irish Eyes also dries darker on the nail than the bottle, so be aware of that. Again, I never really have application issues, and this was no different. 

Barielle had another sale today where you could get 5 polishes for $5 shipped. I don't know how fast these sell out, but I checked today at 11 and they were already sold out. Make sure to check for these great deals in the morning! Their polishes normally run $8, but check their sales or free shipping offers on their Facebook page or Twitter, too.

Right on the Nail ~ Barielle Fall 2014 Jetsetter Collection Swatches and Reviews: Gondola Ride and Kiss Me Kate

*press samples*


Barielle Gondola Ride (2 coats)



Barielle Kiss Me Kate (2 coats)

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're off to a good start of the week and getting your Christmas shopping done! Right now you can get Barielle's other 6-piece fall collection called Jetsetter. Up first is Gondola Ride which is a light sage green creme that self-leveled and only needed 2 coats. There are actually 2 green polishes in this collection which is a bit strange for a fall collection. I think it's strange in a good way. I think the problem people have is that the other one is so close in color to Gondola Ride, You'll see for yourself tomorrow. 

The second polish is Kiss Me Kate which is a nude mannequin hand creme. It's nothing unique, but everyone needs a good nude polish and this one matches my coloring pretty well (I think my coloring is more yellow and Kiss Me Kate is a bit more pink). Like pretty much all Barielle polishes, this is a perfect 2-coater. Right now Barielle is having a sale every day. For example, today was 5 polishes for $5 and free shipping that easily sold out. Sign up to get e-mails of their deals here. Their polishes normally run $8, but check their sales or free shipping offers on their Facebook page or Twitter, too.
