Too Cute-icle Swatches!

Swatch time! :)

I was lucky enough to score all 8 of Too Cute-icles newest collections! Unfortunately, my camera took a dump and I was only able to get decent photos of 3 of them (for now). 
Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall

Copperhead, Sleepy Flower, Co-Ed, The Great Barrier

Let me just say that I was really impressed with these. The color combos are fun and funky, and they apply very well. I didn't have to place or dab any of these glitters. They went on smooth the first time around, and I didn't need to do any re-positioning of any of them. 2 Thumbs up!

First up is one of my favorites: Co-ed (2 light coats over Pure Ice 'Home Run' which is a minty, pastel green.) Co-ed is a really delicate blend of blue and rose pink circle glitters, teeny blue squares and  micro pink glitters. If you love the name, you're welcome ;) This is one that I got to name LOL!




 Next up is Sleepy Flower (2 coats, shown over black).  This one was a surprise favorite, I didn't expect to love it quite as much as I do! Sleepy Flower has a grey/black tinted jelly base and is packed full of rosy pink and mossy green circle glitters. small gold hexes, and blue micro glitters. It also has a subtle holo shimmer to it. The photos don't do it any kind of justice, its sooo unique and gorgeous. It reminds me of black hills gold.




Last we have Copperhead (2 coats over Zoya's Codie). Copperhead is a gorgeous blend of brown hexes, teeny copper squares, and a holo micro shimmer. This is where my camera decided it was going to stop taking decent photos, so you only get one shot of it for now. You can check her Etsy shop for additional swatch photos here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TooCuteicle


The final photo I have for you was taken months ago! Sometime back in October, Jess sent me a prototype of a polish she was creating for another collection and I fell in LOVE with it! It reminded me of autumn in a bottle so I begged her to keep it and release it with the 'Seasons' collection she was planning...and here it is! This is a photo of my 2012 Thanksgiving mani featuring 'Fall'! 

Fall is an absolutely amaaaaaazing combination of orange and green hexes, and teeny tiny orange, green and brown glitters. Its seriously SO pretty and will probably be my Thanksgiving go-to polish forEVAR!

Please excuse the awfulness of this photograph, it was just a quick shot and not originally intended as a 'press' photo.
