Below are some random swatches I just threw together. I did these all during last weekend when I went on my swatching binge. ENJOY!!

First up is the only Zoya I got from the clearance bins. Alot of you made mention that you have never seen Zoya for sale other than online. My little local beauty supply does sell Zoyas for $5.49 in the store and it is the only place other than online I have ever seen them for sale too. I got this one below for $2.99

Dinky will be modeling this on her toes later today in a post. She got her a halloween mani last night :)




This had to be done over a dark base color. I couldn't find my black so I used a dark blue.

I think I just got that purple-xing at Sally's the other day. I can't wait to try that one on.
And loving the mixed up!!

PHYRRA - I got mine at Sally's and it was the last one left! If it isn't out, you might ask them to check in the back :)

NESSA - Purple-Xing is freaking awesome :)

Rachel said...

Thanks for praising Purple Xing! I got it and it's so amazing, I think it's being drowned out by the new CG glitters. But they don't have a dark purple, I think it's my new favorite polish!!

so brooke there is this phenomenon that i've experienced that the DAY i find/wear a new color that i think i'm the only one in the world (haha) that's discovered said new color and am super excited to show off and blog about, that day someone blogs/talks/buys it. such is the case today with your beautiful photos of purple-xing. sooooo weird haha! idk, maybe our brain waves cross in the atmosphere or something haha. anyway i love it and am glad you're sharing it with the world!!!

Do you know if ORLY polishes are vegan? Some of the colors look really nice. Thanks for posting!

Brooke said...

KELLIE - lol , it happens to me too!! lol, or I will think I have found something really rare, and it isn't, lol... but this purple is amazing isn't it??

AWESOMEVEGAN - I wasn't sure on the answer, so I sent Orly and email. Hopefully i will get a response and I will post it up for you :)

Each polish is more beautiful than the last. The purple is freakin' amazing! Just gorgeous with all the glitter. The Orly polish should now be called Dinky's Punch. Since she rocks that color it should be renamed.

awesomevegan said...

Thanks, Brooke! I hope they are. I read that the SpaRitual ones are made by the daughter-in-law of ORLY's founder. Spa Ritual are vegan but are harder to find in stores. :( The ORLY if they are vegan would be great because I have seen them in stores and sometimes they have sales :) It's just one of those brands I have been curious about. :)

Ahh, I'm loving Cotton Candy & Orange punch!

Great colors. Suvi is a favorite. The beauty supply I worked at could never keep it in stock. It's perfect for doing a University of Oregon themed mani.
