Right on the Nail ~ LeChat Dare to Wear Nail Lacquer Swatches and Review: Mint Jubilee

LeChat Dare to Wear Mint Jubilee (2 coats)

Have you tried LeChat Dare to Wear polishes before? LeChat is most popular for their gel polishes, but they make regular nail polish colors the same color as their gel counterparts. These are great polishes and you get quite the bang for your buck with just $3 a bottle at Transdesign. Mint Jubilee comes from their Spring 2014 collection, and I can definitely see why. It's a nice mint green creme that rivals polishes twice the price. The formula was fine and I used 2 coats for the swatches. I think 3 might have been better on a couple nails, but you'd never notice if it weren't for the macro photos. Overall, definitely check out LeChat Dare to Wear polishes because they don't get the love they deserve (likely because you can't really find them easily in stores unless you are a professional). Enjoy your Thursday and my lobster hands!

Right on the Nail ~ Rainbow Honey Swatches and Review: Frozen Flame

Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame (2 coats) over a Sally Hansen Green

Hello hello! I've been swatching the Zoya Satins, so stay tuned for those this week. If you love soft shades, you will love this 6-piece collection. Tonight I have something completely the opposite of the Zoya Satins, and that is Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame which is a party in a bottle. Basically it has gold and holographic bar glitter of different sizes, as well as multiple colors of hexagonal glitter. I meant to post this as a fun topper for New Year's Eve, but I completely forgot about it. This did not come in a mystery bag; I bought the Frozen Flame Set which included things like lotion, cuticle oil, and body spray all with the Frozen Flame scent. I was happy that with 2 coats the polish didn't get really thick like some Rainbow Honey polishes can get (perhaps because this was a full sized bottle?). Currently Rainbow Honey is closed, but will open shortly for the February restock.

Right on the Nail ~ OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection Swatches and Review: Embrace The Gray

OPI Embrace the Gray (2 coats)

Oh Sundays. I wish I didn't ruin my Sunday on a migraine. I never used to get headaches, but the last few years has been just full of them. 

The final OPI Fifty Shades of Grey color I have is Embrace the Gray which is a medium grey creme. No, it's not very unique, but I still love all the greys. The problem I had with it was the formula which was quite watery. I didn't think it was going to be opaque in 2 coats, but it was. Formula problems, but I still loved it.

Right on the Nail ~ OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection Swatches and Review: Shine For Me

OPI Shine For Me (2 coats)

No, I never read any of the Fifty Shades of Grey books, nor do I have any plans to. This fact did not stop me from getting exited about the OPI collection because I love grey polishes. Somehow I only bought 2 of them, but I think Dark Side of the Mood is going to come home with me soon. There is also a mini collection that has all of the polishes, but I hate their mini bottles, so I'm just going to have to get the full sizes of the ones I like best. My favorite of the collection was Shine For Me which is a silver and blue glitter polish. From other blog posts I found that this is opaque on its own, and I only used 2 heavy-handed coats for the swatches above. I love this one since it is so sparkly and you can really see a nice mixture of both colors. I request more grey polishes in collections in 2015!

Right on the Nail ~ butter London Swatches and Review: Jack the Lad

butter London Jack the Lad (2 coats)

I love 4 day weeks. I went to a conference on Tuesday and Wednesday for work, so today really feels like Monday. It's great! 

Anyway, awhile back, Ulta had this great unannounced sale where I got 3 butter London polishes (only a select number of shades were a part of the sale) for only $15 (I think). One of the shades was Jack the Lad which is a mossy green with blue, gold and green shimmer. Oh man, I love this so much! The blue stands out more than the gold, and that makes this polish more unique in my opinion. The formula was pretty good, and only 2 coats were needed. You can find butter London polishes at your local Ulta, Macy's, Nordstrom, etc. for $15 each. Pricey, but nice for a splurge.
