Hello lovely readers! I have several posts planned today so long as my computer processes these videos in a timely manner! Seriously, I’m hoping to upgrade to a nicer PC next year and I can’t imagine a day when videos don’t take three to four hours to compile! I’m starting off this post-a-thon with Quixotic Polish’s newest trio, inspired by the hopes and mood for the new year! Let’s get to the swatches!
Optimism: an orchid based shimmer containing an intense pink to gold to green shifting shimmer and dusting of holo micro particles $11
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like with a strong squish feeling on application. The base color is so flattering, and the shimmer is crazy strong! This dries down satin like so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to really make it pop. This is topped off with Quixotic’s Fancy a Quickie? ($7) quick dry glossy topcoat. It has a medium feel to it and dries crazy fast while leaving your nails super glossy.
Or, you can wear it matte! I used Quixotic’s Truly, Mattely, Deeply matte topcoat ($7) for this look. This topcoat leaves a strong matte effect and I’d pair it in with one of the stronger types of matte topcoats.
Transport of delight: a pale orchid multichrome that shifts pink to green decorated with holo micro flakes and copper/gold/green iridescent flakes $11
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like, and I think most will be fine at two coats, though those with longer nails and a lighter hand might need a third coat. The shimmer is very strong appearing as a bright pink in bright lights, but a strong green at angles.
I think went in and matted Transport of Delight with Truly, Mattely, Deeply and I think it looks so good either way!
Grounds for Hope (topper): a flakie topper containing pink/gold iridescent flakes, copper/gold/green iridescent flakes and holo micro flakes $8
Swatches show one coat over Optimism, and one coat over Soiree, a blue cream that launched during Quixotic’s last release. This has lots of iridescent shift from the flakes and gives off quite a bit off goodies atone coat.
(I think it looks like total princess nails over Optimism, so pretty!)
The 2020 vision collection is a limited trio releasing on December 26th at 9 am PST. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these pretties in action!
