Beauty Gems,Essence Surfer Babe and WnW

Today I have several swatches for you. They are all from my haul that I posted a few down.

First up are the Ulta Beauty Gems. Little gems they are! ;-) I was surprised by how much I ended up liking all of them. They are made up of two creams,one glitter and one shimmer/foil.

Emerald is a forest green jelly with green and gold glitter. This is tied for my fav. of the bunch. This is two coats, as were all four. No TC used.

Smoky Quartz is one of the two creams of the group. This isn't usually my kind of color, but I really do like this one. It's a good color for fall, and I def. will be wearing this again.

Pink Ruby is the second cream and also my other fav. very pretty dark pink.

Last but not least, is Amethyst. It's the shimmer/foil of the group. Another good one for fall.

The next two are part of the new Essence Surfer Babe collection. There are four in total, but I just got the two. I also found these at Ulta.

The World's Coolest is a robins egg blue, and the formula was quite milky. I used four coats, but I do like the way it turned out.

I decided to try the last three polishes with Cover Girl's Disco Dazzle over top. I like the way they all turned out. :-)

Pointbreak is the second of the essence that I picked up. I LOVE this color. It's a gray cream. I actually bought two of this one. I plan to use it in my up coming giveaway. This was two coats. Application was great on this one.

And with CG's DD

The last one I have for you today, is Wet n Wild Blue Moon. I picked it up at the grocery store yesterday. It says it's a new shade. I don't know if it really is, but it was the first time I'd seen it. It's a very pretty inky blue with blue shimmer. Application was a bit messy, but that could have just been me. LOL! This one was three coats, but could have gotten away with two.

Whew! I feel like I've been swatching all day! I did more than this, but those are for another day. :-) How has your week been going so far? It feels like it should be Fri. already! Wishful thinking. ;-) Well, I hope you all have a wonderful night. I'm off to grab some dinner,have a bath and catch up on my tv shows.


  1. Nice swatches! I like emerald the best! I think that there is a similar color in the new OPI Swiss collection but I can't remember its name... hmmm....

  2. I'm loving Pointbreak too! :-) I've been into the grey colors lately.

    Thanks! emerald is another one of my favs. of the bunch. I think you might be right about the Swiss collection, but I can't think of the name either! LOL....going to have to go look it up now.
