I had no internet today from getting up at 8am until around half past 5. None. This made me sad and grumpy! But my husband is home now and I feel a bit happier 🙂 So, because I had no internet and I’m not a big fan of TV (especially not daytime TV), and because the sun has been out a little today, I decided to make some headway with my swatching! So there are 6 swatches here, but there’s only one of each so don’t worry, it’s not TOO picture heavy.
I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Hue Are You?. In the bottle it looked lovely but I don’t know, it didn’t seem as nice on my nails as I’d expected it to be. Although it clearly looks the same on my nails as it does in the bottle, juding from the picture, so I don’t know what I’d expected! I also made one heck of a mess putting it on, as you can see from the picture! It was a good formula though and dried well, and is definitely packed with lots of tiny weeny gold micro glitter stuff. It IS nice, I think I was just expecting something different for some crazy reason!
This was LOVELY! Like a blue version of Monarch Masquerade I guess. I really liked it. Great formula, dried really fast, the difference in depth of colour between one coat and two was incredible! It went on fairly patchy on the first coat (which I think was more due to my application as I was trying to avoid my mum’s dog at the time!) but on the second it was just pure perfection! Beautiful! Nobody should be without a metallic blue or a metallic purple.
When I first saw this in it’s bottle I really wasn’t impressed with it AT ALL! In fact I think the actual thought was simply “yeuck”. And, to be quite fair, it isn’t as gold as it looks in Diamond’s swatches, however, once I put it on I really liked it. It’s like a paler chocolate colour. It’s totally not the same colour at all but it reminds me of Caramac chocolate. Or maybe toffe flavoured hot chocolate. Not as dark as milk chocolate but it DOES make me think of chocolate (as I’m sure we’ve established by now!) I did really like this and I will be wearing it again (even though I initially didn’t think I would.)
