Swatch Catch Up (June 2020)

Hello lovelies. Today I'm back with my swatch catch up for the month of June. I did publish a few more blog posts last month, so only have four swatches that are yet to be shared on here. Keeping it short and sweet, let's get stuck in! Read on for my full swatches and more info.

Swatch Catch Up (June 2020) @acertainbeccaa

Polished for Days 'Yesterday, Tomorrow, and Fantasy' is a purple base with blue to purple shifting shimmer, blue to purple shifting iridescent flakes, and holographic flakes. This was my pick from the Disney Castle inspired Imagination Collection - purchased from Rainbow Connection. I did find it quite sheer, but applied thin coats and added a fourth to make sure it was opaque in photographs. Below is four coats with topcoat.

Painted Polish 'Don't Stop Be-Leafing' is a sage green crelly packed full of shifty pink to gold to green flakies. Lexi released a whole sage themed collection, Shades of Sage, and I did pick a couple of others up that should pop up at some point. This one is on the border between two or three coats depending on application. I also purchased this from Rainbow Connection. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Native War Paints 'Fallout' is a neon yellow with a contrasting blue shimmer. The shimmer does show on the nail, but is very subtle. Unfortunately this does have a bit of a typical neon yellow formula - it was opaque in two/three coats, but streaky. I ended up doing more coats than I am willing to admit. This is supposed to be good for water marbling, so I'll keep it for that! The picture below is shown with topcoat.

Pretty Serious 'Presence' is a white creme. I'd popped this on as a base for some nail art so thought I may aswell take an updated swatch picture. While I don't tend to get on with white polish, this is the better of the formulas I've tried. Below is three coats with topcoat.

What do you think? Do you own any of the polishes mentioned? I love both the Polished for Days and the Painted Polish, but the Polished for Days has to be my favourite of the four - it is incredible! I had it both hands for a good few days, and was still upset when I had to finally remove it!

Hope to see you in the next post!
