Nail Polish Haul, Review, Swatches

As spring is just around the corner, I decided my nail polish collection needed a little freshening-up. Of course I don't really need any more nail polishes, but I found a few that I just really wanted to try. I have a hard time finding a wide selection of polish brands where I live, but I found Nail Polish Canada to have great selection and quick, cheap shipping (free over $25), so that is where I picked these up. All swatches are three coats unless I note otherwise. 

Pink Plumeria by China Glaze

This polish applied beautifully, and lasted a whole week without chipping (with topcoat). I highly recommend.

Keep Calm, Paint On by China Glaze

I thought this would apply nicely since I had such good luck with Pink Plumeria, but it was a bit thick and goopy. I was disappointed by the application, but I'm going to try putting in a drop of nail polish thinner to see if that helps. The colour is really pretty, and even though the application was thick, and not perfect, on the one day that I wore it to work, I got three compliments on it. Everyone is loving the mint this season!

Daul by Zoya

This colour is so pretty! The gold fleck is quite prominent and really catches the eye, more so than what you see in the swatch. Application was smooth and it wore well on my nails.

Champagne Kisses by China Glaze

One coat

This is pretty high up on my list of favourite glitters. I think Champagne Kisses and Butter London's Rosie Lee are my faves. Very pretty, but chipped quite quickly on my nails.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Champagne Kisses looks pretty amazing indeed!

  2. My pictures don't even do it justice!
