Color Club Poptastic 2014 Collection - swatches

Hello, long time no blog! Sorry about that, I had some computer problems for a little while, but it's all fixed now! :)

If you follow me on Instagram (@madmaewest) you may have seen me post about this amazing deal I just got: I found a set of polishes, which looked exactly like the Color Club Poptastic 2014 collection (the 6 shimmery neon shades), plus a clear polish for only 9.99$CAD at Winners. Holly Crap! That's like 1,43$CAD a bottle!!!! Normally, Color Club is around 8 -10$CAD a bottle around here, so when I saw these for so cheap, I just couldn't believe it and grabbed them right away! Now, these are not labelled, so I wasn't 100% sure at first that they were really part of the Poptastic 2014. But, with the help of Katie @ Total Polish Junkie and Phoebe @ Glimpses of the moon, who both own the official collection and thought these really look similar, and after watching and reading lots of reviews, I'm pretty sure that these are the real deal people! So let's get to the swatches! :D

All of these polishes have an amazing formula for neons.They are a little thick but nothing unmanageable. They were really opaque, I did two coats for each polish. I did not use topcoat.

Full Swatch: Favorite Red Nail Polishes

Hi guys! Long time no post! Sorry I've been a little bit M.I.A. lately. I've been busy with life stuff and recently I've been sick with a nasty cold :(. But I'm feeling better today so it's blog post time! ;)

Today, I have the first post of a new series I'm starting: the Roy G. Biv color of the rainbow nail polish series Holly from misshollyberries created on her youtube channel a while back.

This post is all about my favorite red nail polishes. :)

NOTD: Glam Polish " Fairy Princess Gru!"

Hello everyone! I have a very girly and fun NOTD to share with you today :)

This is  Fairy Princess Gru! by Glam Polish, which is inspired by the movie Despicable Me 2. It has a clear base filled with big and smallish hot pink, light pink, lavender and light yellow hex matte glitters. There is also some smaller round matte glitters and tiny holographic ones. In this swatch, I have one easy dabbed coat over one coat of O.P.I. Mod About You.

Here's a better look of the glitters:
You can see more pictures of my (small) Glam Polish collection over there.
Glam Polish is a 3 Free indie (handmixed) brand and can be purchased from Etsy, on their official website (though I don't think they ship outside of Australia), on Llarowe which is where I got this polish and on a bunch of other websites which are listed over there.

This is going to be a really quick post because I'm a little bit in a hurry and I'm also planning on swatching each of these nail polishes separately in NOTDs posts. But here is a look of my small Glam Polish collection:
