Sunday's Are For Swatching!

Hello, lovelies!

Today I am launching a new segment on the blog.  I recently recieved an email from the logistics manager of my church choir (along with everyone else).  It basically reiterated our dress code policies on Sunday mornings and it stated that while we are allowed to wear nail polish it must be a "normal" color.  Wah wah wah.  So to keep myself from getting in trouble and to continue what used to be my "Church Mani" series, I'll be swatching!  There will be a swatch of my "normal" churchy polish and then a fun color to mix things up!  I may not be able to post every Sunday (brunch is a favorite of mine haha), but at least this way I can get thru my untried polishes quickly :D

Julep Annette, swatch, grey, gray, mushroom, taupe, nails, nail art, nail design, mani

First up is Annette!  Julep has described this beauty as a "light dove grey crème".  Personally, I think it looks more mushroom/taupe in color.  Either way I absolutely love it!  I received it in the most recent Julep Mystery Box that came out this month.  I didn't think it looked like anything special in the bottle but once I got it on.... I couldn't stop staring at it.  It's just so elegant and beautiful :)  This swatch is 2 coats with OPI RapiDry Top Coat.

Sally Hansen Peachy Breeze, Insta Dri, swatch, coral, pink, bright, nails, nail art, nail design, mani
Peachy Breeze

There ain't nothin' peachy about this one!  As with all  Insta-Dri's the formula is very thick, creamy and pigmented.  This polish is a bright coral that leans more towards a rosy-pink than orange.  This polish is the perfect "pick-me-up" color and it has been one of my faves for the last couple weeks.  This swatch is 2 coats with OPI RapiDry Top Coat.

Retail: $4.00 

Well, I hope you all have a very wonderful evening/night :)  If you have any suggestions how I can better my swatching posts, feel free to comment below...

Until next time!
