Nail Polish Couture

Today I am swatching three beauties from Nail Polish Couture.  I got Sunshine on a Cloudy day, Taylor and Galaxy.

First I swatched Sunshine on a Cloudy Day in three coats on my naked nail.  The formula is sheer and will show through to the naked nail so it would be best with another color underneath to amp up the color or accentuate.  This would also be a great polish for a jelly sandwich effect.  A light shimmer highlights the polish and really catches the sun.

To get the best most out of this beautiful color I laid a base coat of Ruby Wing Birdie, a lemon yellow that changes color in UV light.  I topped Birdie with two coats of Sunshine on a Cloudy Day to give it the beautiful shimmer that is so gorgeous about this polish.  For some nail art I added white stripes on the duel accent nails and painted some rosettes along the tip.  Such a perfect spring look! 

Taylor is a beautiful deep red in the bottle.  One the nail in three coats there is a slightly sheer bright crimson that shows through to the nail a bit.  However in warmer temperatures this polish will fade to an extremely sheer lightest pink.  This thermal changes very fast! You can see in the lower pictures that the tips of my nails are already fading to dark red.  There are so many possibilities with this polish, it is exciting!

To show some of what you can do with this polish in a peekaboo manicure I layered a special surprise mani with two coats of Nail Polish Coutures Taylor.  In cool temperature you see the deep red only with a few hints of darker glitters but it hides almost everything.  Underneath that I dipped this same manicure in hot water.  The red melted away to reveal my red glitter gradient with a cute red heart on the ring finger.  For the full mani I used two layers of Zoya Purity and Deborah Lippmann's Do You Think I'm Sexy? for the red glitters.  How fun!

Next up is Galaxy.  This is a sheer charcoal base full of holographic shimmer.  On the nail in three coats it was very sheer so I would sugest this one as a topper to accentuate any manicure.  

I used two coats of Zoya Raven followed by two coats of Nail Polish Couture's Galaxy.  Lastly I added some gold round studs from Polish Me To Go's online store while the nails were still wet.  My black polish got a really beautiful look with the silver holographic on top and it went along beautifully with the studs.  

Overall these are some nice polishes.  They are all very sheer so plan on using them with an undercoat or other colors.  All the formulas were very nice!  Taylor had some slight, very small pigment clumps but they were only visible when the nails were hot and turned pink.  Taylor was amazing with it's color changing beauty and very versatile so that would have to be my favorite! Followed by Galaxy and Sunshine on a Cloudy Day tying for second.
