Right on the Nail ~ Killer Queen Varnish Swatches and Review: Midnight at the Oasis

Killer Queen Varnish Midnight at the Oasis (2 coats)

This week seems to be flying by! It's been a busy one, but I hope yours has gone well. Tonight I have my final Killer Queen Varnish color called Midnight at the Oasis which is a black jelly with tons of gold glitter and shimmer. I don't own Band Geek by KBShimmer, but this sort of reminds me of that a little bit. Band Geek has some silver in it which Midnight at the Oasis does not have. I thought there was going to be more glitter in this, but it's not too sparse by any means. This had the best application and formula of the 3. It was completely smooth and opaque in 2 coats which is surprising for a jelly. Her spring collection just launched, so go over to the website for pictures and to purchase. You can find them on their Etsy storeFacebook, and Instagram.

Right on the Nail ~ Killer Queen Varnish Swatches and Review: These Boots

Killer Queen Varnish These Boots (2 coats)

Hello hello! I sort of got sidetracked and didn't post another Killer Queen Varnish color yesterday. I know, I just forgot! Also, sorry for the crappy last picture; my camera decided to have my cuticles and finger focused but not the polish. I don't even know why I bothered showing it. Anyway, These Boots is a chocolate jelly with tons of orange and bronze glitter. How pretty is this? It's like fall in a bottle! I usually wear what I want, when I want, but I think I would appreciate this much more when the weather starts getting a little cooler. I couldn't resist it during a 40% off sale. The formula was slightly thick, but pigmented enough for only 2 coats. You can find them on their Etsy storeFacebook, and Instagram.

Right on the Nail ~ Rainbow Honey February 2015 Mystery Bag Swatches and Review: Tsukimi

Rainbow Honey Tsukimi (2 coats)

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting last night, but I've been working a ton and didn't have a chance to get anything up. Next month isn't going to be much better with me having to go to Stanford for a big, fancy piece of equipment. I'll be gone for over a week, so hopefully I can get ahead and start making some posts.

I'm slowly starting to get through my Rainbow Honey stash and I have Tsukimi for your viewing pleasure. It's a fuchsia/violet hybrid with tons of blue and silver(?) glitter. I can see mainly hexagonal glitters, but there are a few triangles and squares in there as well. I like the color combination, but I did not like the formula or application. I found it to be extremely thick and gloopy. Thankfully it only needed 2 coats for full coverage because a third would have looked like crap.

Right on the Nail ~ LynB Designs Wonderland Collection Swatches and Review: The Queen's Roses

LynB Designs The Queen's Roses (3 coats)

Happy Saturday? This is a question because I am here at work on a Saturday for a full 8 hours. Oh, and I don't get a day off for another 3 days or so which means I have to go at least 8 days without any time off. Boo! It's that time of year for all the work apparently.

I've had this LynB Designs polish in my stash for months now. I'm not sure why it took me so long to swatch it, but here it is. The Queen's Roses comes from the Wonderland Collection for the Alice in Wonderland theme. It's a white base with red and silver hexagonal glitter and a small sprinkling of short, red bar glitter. Even those of you who hate bar glitter probably won't mind this small amount. I dunno, I love this one more in pictures than I do in real life. It's not as striking of a white in person, so perhaps I should have used some bright white undies with it. Haha! The formula was fine, but a bit sheer in 3 coats. Overall, this isn't my favorite LynB Design polish, but it's still fun.

Right on the Nail ~ Killer Queen Varnish Christmas With Bing Holiday 2014 Swatches and Reivew: O Fir Tree Dear

Killer Queen Varnish (3 coats)

Ok, spring can go ahead and stop the rain already. How many days in a row can it rain all day? It feels like it hasn't stopped all week!

Do you like the photos? I hope so, because they were taken with my new camera! I feel like my skintone is more accurate with it, and the macros are sharper. We'll see how this continues. Anyway, I found out about Killer Queen Varnish on Instagram when they had a 40% off sale to pare down on older stock. Of course I had to buy some to try them out at such a great price! Yes, O Fir Tree Dear is a holiday color, but I'll be wearing this beauty all year. It's a forest green jelly with loads of gold flakes. Oh the depth of this polish! As with any new brand, I am always weary of formula and application, and I'm happy to report that I had no issues here. Since it is a jelly, I used 3 coats, but it wasn't too thick at all. You can find them on their Etsy store, Facebook, and Instagram.
