China Glaze On The Horizon Feather Collection Fall 2013 - Swatches and Review

Hey lovelies! Today I have swatches of the new China Glaze On The Horizon Collection to share with you. I thought these would be really cute for the Fall so I scooped them up. There are 6 feathers (mini bar glitters) in the collection of various colors. Most of them have Fall inspiration with hints of orange and black and would be great for the Halloween season.

I swatched them over black and white. My first 2 nails have a black base, and my last 2 have a white base.

Fing'rs Get Spotted versus OPI Spotted, Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! I was out and about and found the Fing'rs Heart 2 Art nail display. This display is loaded with nail stickers, glitter, tape, brushes, water decals and even a stamping kit. I was so excited because I was able to snatch up the OPI Spotted dupe called Get Spotted.

Application is tricky and similar to crackle polish. You have to make sure the base color is dry and the polish is smooth. I created a video that shows the application (good and bad). I even made a mistake during application, LOL. But it shows how tricky the polish is. For the base, I used 2 coats of the pink and black that came in the kit.

I then polished my right hand with OPI Spotted for comparison. I prefer the look of the OPI, but for $7 the price of Get Spotted can't be beat (unless you use the alcohol water marble).

Overall I believe the polish does work, but it's tricky to work with. I had to use very little polish to create spots, and when I say very little, I mean very little. I would even go as far to say wipe off the brush completely and start there. 

The effect is similar to OPI but more striated than spotted. The look reminds me of crackle polish. 

I purchased Get Spotted for about $6.57. Some of the other embellishments were about $2.50. I also got a few of the water decals. Gotta love those for 2 bucks.

The Fing'rs Heart 2 Art display can be found at Wal-Mart. 

Thanks for stopping by!
