SWATCHES – Nail Polish Couture

Hi all! Sorry for my lack of posts lately…I’m smack dab in the middle of finals week for school. Luckily I found a bit of time this past weekend to swatch these lovely polishes sent to me from Brittany of Nail Polish Couture! They are all gorgeous…but I was super excited to try out a thermal polish she sent to me, I’ve never used one before πŸ™‚ Anyways…

Nail Polish Couture "Galaxy"

Up first is Galaxy. This polish has small holographic glitters in a black base. Here I used one coat over Essie Licorice! Its so simple but crazy gorgeous. I think it would look amazing over a galaxy nail!

Nail Polish Couture "Sunshine on a Cloudy Day"

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day is a light yellow polish with a bit of shimmer. Here I used 3 coats so it was somewhat sheer, but I didn’t apply it very thick. Love it! I’m not typically a fan of yellow polishes but this is the perfect shade of yellow – not too bright and not too “yellow-y” πŸ™‚

Nail Polish Couture "Rachel"

Oh. My. Gosh! Rachel is a duochrome polish that shifts from gold to green to a purple-y/red. Here I have it layered over Essie Licorice. It was so hard to get a good picture of it as there are SO many colors! Depending on the angle your nails are it changes to a different color.

Michelle is a thermal polish that shifts from purple to fuchsia. If you click on the individual picture you can view a closer up pic!
Top Left: Right when I applied it, its in its normal state.
Top Right: I used a blow dryer to get the colors to change quickly to photograph, and this was with just a few seconds of heat.
Bottom Left: This is after using the blow dryer to completely turn it pink. The thermal polish shifts to pink when hot!
Bottom Right: After heating it up, this is when it began to cool down and return to its purple color.

Isn’t it awesome?!

Nail Polish Couture "Lavender Delight"

The last polish I have to show you is Lavender Delight! This is a gorgeous purple shade!

Be sure to check out Nail Polish Couture on her website and instagram!

And that is it! Hopefully I’ll be able to get some nail art in before this weekend πŸ™‚ I love all these colors but I’d have to say either Michelle or Rachel is my favorite! Which one is yours? Let me know in the comments πŸ™‚

    I love how Rachel looks, and Michelle sounds awesome! I know there are polishes at Claire’s that change with heat, but this one definitely looks like it’ll last longer πŸ™‚
