a bit of a mish mash.....

Right i have had a few polishes in the post lately OPI just spotted the lizard,some china glaze optical illusion, and 4 picture polishes(they were on sale here) so what to swatch??? well i have done a few but between kids screaming and a migraine creeping up on me i have only manages to do a few. along with crap weather over the past few days getting a good pic was so hard. and
i dont know if everyone else is the same, but no matter how much cuticle oil and cotton gloves i wear my hands are so dry at the moment :( booooo!
ok anyway here we go.
first up is OPI just spotted the lizard. I am in loooove with this polish. it was all everyone made it to be and more. i struggled to get good pics but me...i just could not keep my eyes of this polish. after a base coat it only needed 2 coats to get great coverage. i did not put a top coat on for these pics.the polish was not too thick or thin and i did not get too many stroke marks.

how beautiful is this polish. i always struggle to buy OPI because of the cost here in australia but this was well worth the money. if any one knows where i can get OPI that ships to australia for a good price please comment me. i would love not to pay $20.00 a bottle for OPI.

Next up is a very coveted polish from the gecko. When i saw floam i sooooo wanted this polish. and after stalking ninja polish i finally managed to get myself a bottle.
Honestly after wearing it. i have mixed feelings now. i love the colour. and with this combo i used a sally hansen blue polish(i cannot remember the name but it is in the xtreme range) as undies and 2 coats of floam on top with SV for a top coat. but even though it was beautiful on.... it was a bugger to get off even after 15 mins of cotton balls and foil! so as much as i loved to wear it i am leaving this for a once in a while polish as it takes way to long to to take off!

i hope you have liked these swatches. i have my Ozotics to swatch next but that involves painting my nails black etc so i need to do it when children are not around.
