NOTD: Pink and Lilac Family

I wanted to do a tone on tone nail with pink/lavender/mix polishes. That means unintentional comparison swatches! :) Two coats for all of them.

NOTD: Marc Jacobs Fluorescent Beige

I wondered around many many Sephoras looking at nail polishes. I usually don't like to spend over 10 bucks for nail polishes but a couple got me. More like I got them. ;D

First one to be tried was Marc Jacobs Fluorescent Beige. It's a mid toned pinky beige with subtle pink shimmers. I mean really subtle. It basically looks like creme finish in an indoor lighting unless you are standing under the light bulb staring at your nails like I do!

Color is beautiful but I don't care for the formula. It dragged a bit (leaving bald spots) AND it bubbled. I've never had any polish or topcoat bubble on me. It's not that noticeable and I like the color, so I will work with it. 18 dollar is a lot to charge for a bubbling nail polish.

Following pictures are two coats. I think it would be fully opaque in 3 coats.

NOTD: China Glaze Atelier Tulle

NOTD!! First off, please excuse my cuticles/nail shape/etc. I completely neglect them when my nails are short. X_X

Anyways, I haven't been painting my nails as much as I used to so application has been a little difficult for me. Plus I painted them at night and I wanted to get it done quickly and go to sleep ASAP. lol. So I needed something that you practically apply by itself. Atelier Tulle is it! It has the hands down the BEST formula out of the all the polishes I have. This is two coats but you can get away with one thick coat. Not my favorite color but formula is just so amazing!! It's a lovely one to have!
