Maquillage BLVD - Some swatches and some nail art...

Friday, 31 May 2013

Hello!  I've got a couple more Maquillage BLVD polishes to show you today, plus a cute bit of nail art.  I've been reviewing the Nailz Over Heelz collection, and if you've missed any previous posts, you can find them here and here.

So, today I have Hot K*nky Pink (I've censored the name for those who might have a sensitive browser!)and Don't Call Me Sunshine to show you.

Maquillage BLVD Don't Call Me Sunshine Hot Kinky Pink Swatches

First up, Hot K*nky Pink.  My, my, my, this one is a beauty!  This is a lovely bright pink that is definitely going to be making quite a few outings for me this summer!  Love it!  This is three coats.

Next we have Don't Call Me Sunshine.  This is a gorgeous pale yellow that has a slight bluey shimmer to it when you tilt it in the light.  Again, love it.  This is quite sheer so I put three coats over a white base coat.

So, fancy some nail art?  I thought these two polishes were the perfect colour combination for some polka dots and bows.

So last week I showed you swatches of the new Barry M Gelly Collection and I thought that they were just screaming out to be used in a rainbow gradient.

Maquillage BLVD swatches... Part 2

Wednesday, 29 May 2013

So, last week I showed you the first four from the batch of swatches I've got to show you from new US brand Maquillage BLVD.  I've got another four to show you today and they are crackers indeed; here are Bluesy, Gimme My Money, Yield! and Coffee Tea or Me.

Maquillage BLVD swatches

So, first up is Bluesy.  This is a really gorgeous deep rich blue, with loads of shimmer.  It's pretty opaque too and this only required two coats, and dried to a lovely shiny finish.

Next we have Gimme My Money.  This is a beautiful rich green.  I painted this over a white base coat to ensure that the colour really popped out.  This is three coats of Gimme My Money.

Next, we have Yield!  Oh my actual goodness!  I am totally in love with this colour.  Now as is the way of the neon, it's quite difficult to photograph the INYOURFACE brightness, so you really do have to have this polish on your nails to appreciate the full on KAPOW you get from it.  And secondly, this is seriously the best neon I have ever tried.  This was opaque in just one coat over a white base coat, and was brilliant to apply.  So many neons are slightly streaky and a nightmare to work with, so I was blown off my feet by this.  (Plus, it's yellow, which I do heart muchly.)

And finally, we have Coffee Tea or Me.  This is a lovely browny/beige/red shade, and again, really nice and opaque; this is two coats.
