Dior Grenade - Garnet swatches and comparisons - Collaboration Saturday

Elena from PicturedTinsel and I have new swatches for you this Collaboration Saturday!!

Dior Grenade – Garnet 565 is a hot fuchsia/magenta pink with a beautiful shimmer – just like I love ‘em :) I’m pretty sure it is from 2009, and it has the lovely “old brush” that since spring 2014 now is the "new brush" replacing the in my mind dreaded broad beaver-tail brush.
This is two easy coats and the finish is shiny and beautiful!
- and a comparison, as you can see the brand new Front Row is more red, and looks just like Chanel Tentation.
I simply Love Grenade/Garnet and I'm so happy to have an extra bottle of it.
Now let's see what Elena has for us today, shall we..?

The Never Ending Haul Story - part 18

It's time for a new part of The Never Ending Haul Story :)
Remember the polishes shown in these posts are not from one single haul, I simply photograph them as they arrive and post a number of photos :)
 I got these two gorgeous red beauties for Christmas - so yes, I am far behind with my haul posts...
Many rare Chanel polishes arrived too...
And a few other pre-owned polishes
- and below you find swatch polishes from the sweet Katarina from Edgy Polish- I have shown swatches of them all..
- and below one new - and many old/pre-owned including some really rare Chanel polishes
So, that's it for this time...

Will The Never Ending Haul Story continue? Will Maria buy more polish?? Does she ever get enough???
Are you confused - you won't be after the next episode, if there is going to be one....;)

Tail Feather flowers

The base color is Picture Polish Tail Feather, see swatches HERE, and a fresh, bright spring green like this calls for flowers. I painted a floral vine in acrylic craft colors, and the top coat is Seche Vite.
Do you like it, or would you have preferred more contrast in the flowers against the base color..?

I bought Tail Feathers from Pretty Polish - they now have a website in English - have a look HERE!

OPI La Paz-itively Hot and La Pazatively Hot Matte comparison

As promised last week when I showed swatches of both in THIS post:
OPI La Paz-itively Hot comes in a "normal" shiny version and in a Matte - and such matters tickle my curiosity, I HAVE to check and investigate ;)
So this is a comparison also including playing around with matte and shiny top coats: Could I have bought just one of them and made it look like the other with a top coat??
OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte on index and pinkie - OPI La Paz-itively Hot on middle and ring ringer

OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte - OPI La Paz-itively Hot - both "as is"

 OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte WITH "shiny" top coat - OPI La Paz-itively Hot "as is"

OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte WITH "shiny" top coat - OPI La Paz-itively Hot WITH a "matte" top coat...

I have to conclude they are different - you cannot make them look alike just by playing with top coats :)
What do you think..?

Violas animal print nail art

The base color is Rainbow Honey Viola and the green spots are made with Rainbow Honey Tayabak, see swatches of both HERE, and the rest is black acrylic craft paint. The top coat is Seche Vite.
I’ll let you be the judge and decide whether it is a leopard or a poisonous frog ;)
So, now I'm curious - it is a leopard or a poisonous frog :D

I bought both Rainbow Honey polishes from Edgy Polish!

Picture Polish Tail Feather swatches

Picture Polish Tail Feather is one of the 2014 blogger collaboration polishes, it’s with Kayla Shevonne.
Tail Feather is a beautiful and bright spring green loaded with micro flakies in different colors, it’s such a happy color. The formula is easy to work with, and it needs 2-3 coats. This is 3 coats without a top coat.
Do you like this bright green beauty!?
I bought it from Pretty Polish! Teir website now is in English too - have a look!

Marilyn likes flowers - floral nail art

The base color is Chanel Marilyn 209, see swatches HERE, and as usual I painted my flowers with acrylic craft color and top coated with Seche Vite. I was quite happy about the result – a little piece of summer ;)
Do you think Marilyn liked her flowers..?

Emily de Molly Moment of Impact swatches

Emily de Molly Moment of Impact is a beautiful berry/grape purple linear holo. It is super easy to work with and the dry time is quick. I used two coats for these swatches without a topcoat, and it dries very shiny.
Do you like it..?
I bought this from Norway Nails, remember to use the code MARIA10 to get a 10% discount when you shop.
