Newbies For Nails ♥

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all doing well today ♥

Yesterday I received a little cardboard box in mail, and I just couldn't wait to post this for you - I know most of you might not be as excited about these as I am, but hey, this is my thing. ;) Once again I placed a small order to Head2Toe Beauty, and can't believe how fast and perfect the delivery was once again. I will definitely keep buying from them if it stays as effortless as this.

I was so excited to get my hands on these sets. There are three different kits with similar colors in them, this one (Grape Expectations), a turquoise one (The Wait Teal You See!) and a pink one (Sweet Sensations). I chose this as I seriously lack purple polishes and the other two were kind of just more or less duplicates for polishes I already have. Also, CG has ombre kits in neons (2 of them, I think) that include 4 bottles of different colors (not different shades of the same color, but really, different colors). I think they might be cool to try out as well, but we'll see about that next summer, I think.

The kit also includes 10 hexagon sponges, but after reading reviews and feeling them with my hands, I'm not too sure about their potential for ombre manis. Anyway, I will try them out later and let you know how I feel about them.

China Glaze For Audrey

Okay, okay, I know this one is kinda similar to the Aquadelic one that I already have - but this is more "Tiffany's blue" if you know what I mean. I love teal/turquoise shades on nail polishes so much.

China Glaze White On White

After searching for more affordable alternative for my favorite white - Essie Blanc - I realized I hadn't tried out the CG one. I've heard good things about this one, and I'm sure we'll be good friends soon. Not much to say about this one, it's just a basic white.

China Glaze Some Like It Haute

Another 3D glitter. I loved Lorelei's Tiara so much (they're both from the same collection) that I simply had to take this home, too. Unlike Lorelei's Tiara, I think this one needs to be layered if you want it really to cover your nail properly.

Below, you can see swatches of each polish:

The purple ones from the ombre kit all look pretty amazing - don't know how they'll actually behave as an ombre mani, but we'll see about that later, okay? I'm especially fond of the lightest and the darkest shade of the pack. Crimson may look like black, but it's really just a very dark purple, nice warm shade.

I'm actually in the middle of creating a skittle mani with these colors, but more on that later!

And here are the individual ones - I really, really like Some Like It Haute, it looks very exquisite. I can't wait to wear it on a nice mani! That'll sure add some glam to nail art.

So, that's all for this time.

What do you think about the colors here? Have you purchased any new nail polishes this Autumn? ♥

I'll go now to get some sleep, and I hope tomorrow will bring nice jogging weather (it's been raining the whole day today!) so I can get outside more. ;)

Have a lovely day ♥

Blog ya later,

xoxo
