SWATCH POST — Sally Hansen New & Improved Good. Kind. Pure shades for 2022

PR SAMPLE/GIFTED

Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday!

I know what you’re thinking — what day of the week is it? But I have so many fun polishes to share right now, I thought it would be fun to dedicate my posts this week to all Swatches! First up we have some shades from the new & improved Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure collection.

As mentioned last time I swatched this line, these shades are a more “natural” alternative to nail polish — they’re 15 free, vegan & plant based. They also boast 7 days of wear on the nail — I’m assuming, when combined with both the Good. Kind. Pure base coat & top coat.

So let’s take a look at the colours!

SWATCH SUNDAY — Spring Vibes with Londontown

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday? Can you feel that in the air — it’s the feeling of Spring in the air! Which means it’s time to break out the pastels.

Recently I was at my local Winners, & I happened to see some cute nail polish duos by Londontown. I’ve purchased some of their nail polishes before, so I was excited to get some more nail polishes to try. I decided on a set featuring two very Spring-y shades — Mint No Chip & Briolette.

SWATCH SUNDAY — Candy Coat

{PR SAMPLE/GIFTED}

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! Today I have some brand new beauties to share with you! I recently received a PR Candy Box 🍬 from Candy Coat, with some cute little bottle of polishes! They are reached out to me curious if I would be interested in trying some of their newly released (non gel) mini polishes, & you know how much I love trying new to me polish brands, so obviously my answer was a resounding yes!

These Candy Coat mini polishes are 12-free, cruelty free & fast drying. There is 5ml of polish were mini bottles & they retail for £2.99 or $5.14 CAD ($3.84 USD).

So let’s get into the swatches!

SWATCH SUNDAY — Julep Alyssa (It Girl)

Good morning lovelies! & happy Easter to those who celebrate! Today I’ve got another Spring-y swatch to share with you. Today I’m wearing a new-ish to me polish: Julep Alyssa (It Girl).

I was looking for a polish to wear as a base for some Spring/Easter Nail Art, & I thought this minty turquoise polish would be an awesome polish choice. This was another polish that was gifted to me, courtesy of @helloluli_, & I think it is such a beautiful shade for Spring.

For my swatches, I did 2 coats of polish over my base, & finished off everything with glossy top coat. According to the Julep website, their polish formulas are designed to make your nails look more beautiful — they are also vegan. I’m always here for polish that is going to help my nails, especially because pregnancy has left my nails looking rough (hence why they’re staying so short). The polish definitely dried quickly, which I appreciate–no one wants to wait forever to apply nail art.

Seriously, this colour is so gorgeous, I’m so in love with the Spring-y vibes it’s giving me. The formula was a bit thick for my liking & the brush was a bit big for my small nail beds, but other than that the coverage was good & it dried down just lovely so that I was able to add nail art on top as soon as I finished taking these pictures.

I am definitely a sucker for a pastel blue shade & I can see myself wearing this a lot.

By the looks of things, this shade might be hard to track down as it’s currently out of stock on the Julep website & I couldn’t really find another source to buy. I know I see Julep shades popping up in my local Winners & Marshall’s stores on occasion & eBay might also be an option.

So what do you think of this shade? Share your thoughts down below! & stay tuned this week to see what nail art I added on top for my Easter celebrations. 🌸
