Saturday Swatch Spam! Pt. 2

More shades from Pretty and Polished :) here is the blogger collection! Chels collaborated with some really cool bloggers to create a handful of very unique shades that I was very luck to get my hands on through a giveaway. All swatches are three thin coats with Glossy Glam top coat (which I am loving btw. Doing a test post on that top coat soon!) 

I'll start with my favorite. Queen You Dig It? Inspired by blogger Shirpa, owner of Taneja's Bride. Even before I checked out her blog this color scheme shouted Bollywood to me (I am slightly obsessed with Indian culture) and I was right! This off white cream polish has beautiful blue and gold hex glitters and small round maroon glitters. Perfection.

Next is Adventures in Polish Making inspired by the blogger Amy at I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous.
Something about rainy greys draw me in and this is no disappointment. Suspended in this grey base are small blue and purple glitter that give the medium gray a pop. A quiet statement polish for sure.

 This is New York City Lights from blogger Carly at Lacquered Lover. This light purple flakie can be worn on it's own and it shines blue, pink, and I'm even picking up green in certain lights. It infuriated me to photograph though. Could not capture the real beauty!

 Here it is layered over O.P.I I Saw...You Saw...We Saw...Warsaw and the purple and blue flashes of the flakie are a little more apparent layered over a dark polish. Especially on my index and middle finger.

Crystal from Crystal's Crazy Combos created Crazy Circles. I wanted to love this polish sooo much! Circle glitters make me so happy! But I feel like the formula should have been a little thicker so the large round glitters wouldn't just slip off the brush. Even after storing it upside down I couldn't really get them on the brush to manuver them around. I still actually really love it and maybe I will apply it with a more careful hand next time. :)

It's a slightly grey tinted white base with a little bit of holo sparkle in it.

 And Me, Myself, and Cacti made by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails! I love this neon green jelly. It has black and white matte glitter in hex and round shapes. Looks exactly like a cactus! It also reminds me of a kiwi, which makes me want to do some fruit nails... I did three coats here but maybe because of my super visible VNL I will opt for four coats or layering.

All these polishes are so unique! In general and in my collection. I really love Queen You Dig It? and Adventures In Polish Making. 
Thanks for reading part two of Saturday spam and I hope ya liked it ;)
