Anyway, that's quite enough of my rambling, lets see the lovely polishes!
|Aqua Violet, Indian Ocean, Purple Haze, Juicy Jules|
I got one of the 'old' Beetle Juice Collection- Aqua Violet, and one from the newer collection- Indian Ocean, as well as two awesome glitters; a full on purple glitter (Purple Haze) and a stunning silver holographic glitter (Juicy Jules) I really love all 4 polishes, and I'm so glad I got them :) I've already worn Juicy Jules (I might post my NOTD later on today) and I've also swatched them onto my nail wheels (which are now in need of a rearrangement, I really have too many polishes! *oops*) take a look:
|Juicy Jules, Purple Haze, Aqua Violet, Indian Ocean, Aqua Violet over e.l.f. Black|
|I'm not sure you can tell how holographic this glitter is, |
but it is so sparkly and awesome!
I used 3 coats of each polish- Indian Ocean is surprisingly opaque and would be wearable alone, though it looks simply stunning over a pale blue shade. When my order arrived I was still wearing (matte) Beth's Blue on my thumb from last weeks 52 week challenge NOTD so I popped a coat of Indian Ocean over the top (it was awesome!) and I'm now really annoyed that I forgot to photograph it because it was a brilliant colour combination!
You can't really tell in the pictures, but in person Aqua Violet does look quite a bit more vibrant with black 'underwear'- it's opaque with 3 coats alone, but the colours appear more dull than the swatch of just 1 coat over the black. It could just be the clear nail wheels though, I'll give it a try on my actual nails soon :)
Like a lot of glitter polishes these two smell rather strongly (I'm guessing it's because the formula has to be thicker to hold the glitter, requiring more stinky chemicals) but they are so pretty I don't mind. (Just ensure you're in a well-ventilated room!)
Have you been tempted by any of the new Beetle Juice polishes? Made any polish purchases recently?
