Some Untrieds and Unnameds

I hope you’re all recovered from your Turkey Day food comas! If you don’t follow my Instagram, here’s what I was sporting that day:

Nine Zero Lacquer Stuffed is essentially the glitter translation of turkey stuffing. It’s kind of my unofficial tradition to wear this on Thanksgiving, and in glitter gradients around the holidays. This is three coats.

But, I generally try to post all my manis in order, so what I have for you today is a bunch of swatches of brands I’ve owned for a while but never tried.

First I have Vernis Classique by Cherimoya Chocolate Cherry, a metallic that’s a bit hard to describe. I loved the color in the bottle, but I decided to destash this immediately after wearing it. Those streaks and I were not getting along At. All. This is opaque in three coats, due to aforementioned streaking.

Next I have Vernis Classique by Cherimoya Coffee, a cool-toned, dark, dusty pink with muted silver shimmer. I’m not sure if that’s a proper description, but that’s what I’ve got. This one was opaque in two coats and was way nicer than Chocolate Cherry.

I’ve had this set of Ellen Tracy polishes for a while now, as you can see by the state of the bottles. They consist of a scarlet creme, a crimson creme, and a gunmetal foil. None of them have names. The reds seem to be something of a crelly formula and are opaque in two coats, while the silver needs three coats.

Let me know what polishes you guys have had for a long time but have never tried. :O
