Saturday Spam: Random Swatch Spam!

Hi Guys! Hope you're all having a good weekend so far! Today I have some swatch spam for ya! Yesterday I found a long lost flash drive with all these photos on it (some from as far back as January lol) so I decided to edit them and just throw them all into 1 post. This is mostly Nicole by OPI but there are a couple other brands in here also. Some of these were sent for review (Nicole by OPI and Incoco) and some were bought by me! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Incoco Desert Desert Jewel is a tribal patterned nail nail appliqué from their Tribal Beats Collection! easy to apply and the wear was good, I always have good luck with Incoco!

Incoco Desert Sunset is another nail appliqué  from their Tribal Beats Collection. I really There were a couple more designs that you could use but they didn't fit my nails right :(

Nicole by OPI At Least I Pink So is a light pink creme. The formula was good, it was a little streaky but easy to even out and opaque in 2 coats

Nicole by OPI I Shop Mintage is a mini green creme. The formula was good, again very minor streakyness that was easy to even out. I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Nicole by OPI I'll Have The Salmon is a salmon pinky/orange. This has a very subtle shimmer, it's hardly noticeable in most light. The formula was good, but a bit streaky. I used 3 coats to completely even it out.

Nicole by OPI Oh That's Just Grape! is a purple with subtle shimmer. Like the polish above the shimmer was very subtle and not visible in most light. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Nicole by OPI Something About Spring is a medium pink creme. Good formula and nice opacity with this one. I used 2 coats. 

Nicole by OPI Sweet Surrender is an off white creme. I don't know what it was about this one but it made my skin tone look funky. The formula was good but streaky, I used 3 coats to even it out.

Nicole by OPI Thats Putting It Mild is a light beige nude. Not the right undertones for my skin tone but it will look good on a variety of other people! The formula was good, it was a touch streaky but easy to even out and opaque in 2 coats.

Nicole by OPI This Blue Is So You! is a deep blue creme. I really like this one, no surprise there. The formula and consistency was good, I used 2 coats. 

Nicole by OPI Yoga-Then-Yogurt is a stark white creme. The formula was good, it was a touch streaky but pretty minor and easy to even out. I used 3 coats to get it completely evened out.

OCC Pool Boy is a light blue creme. I think I got this in one of my PopSugar Must Haves  boxes a couple months back, either May or June I don't remember lol! The formula was great, it was easy to apply and the opacity was really nice. I used 2 coats.

Revlon Leather Skinnies is a light grey creme textured polish. The texture is pretty minimal and can easily be gotten rid of with a coat of top coat. The formula was fantastic, it was easy to apply and super opaque. I used 1 coat for the photos below.

Revlon Rock Chic is a cobalt blue creme textured polish. Same as Leather Skinnies its a light texture and easy to get rid of with top coat if you don't like it. The formula again was fantastic, easy to apply and super opaque. I used 1 coat. 

Sally Hansen Fiesta is a red, white and black glitter topper. The formula was not great in my opinion, it was heavy on base and hard to apply. I also got a freakin TON of bubbles once it dried *sad face* I used "2 coats" over Revlon Rock Chic.

Sally Hansen Tidal Rave is black, dark blue and light blue glitter in a clear base. I had the same issues as the previous polish, including the bubbles. I used "2 coats"  over Revlon Leather Skinnies

Where to buy:

Nicole by OPI: Drugstores
Revlon: Drugstores
Sally Hansen: Drugstores


  1. Love seeing a bunch of colors swatched!

  2. Wow these are great swatches! Eye candy heh :-)

  3. Love your Saturday spam swatches. Gorgeous!

  4. I wore the red, white, and blue version of the SH Xtreme glitter for Fourth of July, and same problems. I could hardly get any glitter coverage, and so many bubbles. Such a shame!

  5. Could it be that the dragging of the base-heavy formula combined with the texture on the Revlon polishes made the bubbles more exaggerated, or have you tried those toppers on other polishes, too? I've never put a top coat on a textured polish (I love texture too much for that!) so I don't know how it acts when you top it.

  6. Would you be able to do a comparision of Suzi has a Swede Tooth vs OPI Shorts Story?

  7. I like some of those NOPI colors!

  8. My FAVE is the I shop Mintage...LOVE a good mint cream. How pretty?! thanks for sharing, Jen! :)

  9. I love Rock Chic! I actually thought of you when I bought it a while back. The leather finish is really cool, I think. I normally only like sparkly textures, but the subtlety of the texture in these looks fab as a creme. I think glitter or shimmer would overshadow it!

  10. I tried them over regular cremes also and got the same results unfortunately :(

  11. Leather Skinnies and I Shop Mintage are both amazeballs!

  12. Great post, but I am a little torn in terms of the colours... They are beautiful, but what is Nordic about them? I'm Swedish, and this is not what I consider 'Nordic'... Still, those are beautiful colours, and I might pick up Skating on thin ice-land or Viking in a vinter vonderland.

  13. I really agree. Norwegian here.. Would have loved to see colors that we actually can relate to.

  14. Can't aFjord Not To looks almost identical to your swatch of Essie Serial Shopper. Are they close in real life or different?
