Here is the second installment of swatches of my nail polish collection! The first one is here, and I’ll be collecting all the links from the nail polish swatch series on my Project Swatch Roundup page – (scroll to the bottom).
This time, I’ve included pictures that have the handle of the swatch stick, so you can more easily see the name of the polish. I also have a close-up of the polished tips only. In every set, the close-up of the tips is more color accurate.
Most swatches are two coats; the swatch sticks are labeled with the number of coats if they don’t have two. None of the swatch sticks in this post have topcoat.
I’ve left these pictures larger than usual – click to enlarge.
First, yellow and olive. Note that NYC Python Green is a little more muted than Butter London Wallis, which is brighter. They’re close but not exact dupes.
Greens – Maybelline Avante Green and China Glaze Unpredictable are close, but Avante Green is a little brighter and requires three coats for opacity.
Some murky greens moving into teal. Sinful Colors Leap Flog and In the Mist are almost identical.
Some grey-blues and blues – Sea Spray looks gray photographed next to blues, and blue photographed next to greys. I eventually decided it fits in better here!
Some true blues – note that Baker Street is a cream finish, and Royal is a jelly.
And finally, one last murky blue creme & some foils:
Next up will be purple & nude / beige polishes.
