Eighty4 Valentine's Day Swatches

Hey all! It may be a little early to start thinking about Valentine's manicures, but.. oh well! I have some polishes from Eighty4 a coming out indie brand.

 There are three cremes, one holo, and two glitters. All swatches are finished with topcoat! Click the jump and let's dive in.

Candy Hearts: a soft baby pink pastel color that matches those little candy conversation hearts perfectly! A little hard to apply, it being a pastel and all, so I would recommend a good top coat. Three coats.

Be Mine: A bright hot pink that did better formula wise with two coats. It's a classic pink that leans on the cool side of the spectrum.

Love Dust: is a unique glitter topper with white, lilac, and pink hexes small and large throughout a clear base. I love it! I was really looking forward to the glitters in this small collection. I've layered one coat over Be Mine here but it would look amazing over lilac, white, other pinks or anything really! As you can see it's pretty dense with just one coat.

Put A Ring On It: boy, this one is kinda hard to describe as well as capture. I would say it's a dark pearl color with a touch of holo. I put two pictures so you can see the holographic finish a little more. It applied more like a creme which was nice. Two coats.

Heart Breaker: oh. MY. This. It's hard to describe these glitters. They are red and reflective, but not just red reflective, they are orange and even PURPLE. How cool is this? It actually reminds me of fire, but hey maybe this is represents the house you set on fire after your heart was broken? I've seen too many Lifetime movies. 

This is one coat dabbed on top of Put A Ring On It but it would look stunning over other reds, pinks, or whites. Heck I can even see this in a 4th of July design.

 My Love: a classic red color with a creme formula that dries slightly matte. This is actually a pink toned red which is new to my collection. The first coat went on streaky but the second evened everything out.

And for fun I put the glitter toppers over My Love!

Overall while the cremes were a little finicky in formula, it's refreshing to see an indie attempt at cremes. I really do love the glitters. I think Fefe brings something unique in her glitter mixes to the table! If you remember this post from last time, the glitters caught my eye as well!

These polishes will be available Friday (1/10 ) morning right here :)

Excuse my lighting differences in all of these. I had no idea while I was editing, and scrolling through this post I say "Yikes!" Still striving for consistency in my posts. All polishes are color accurate though. :)
