WIN-ter Wonderland: e.l.f. Nail Polish Swatches and Giveaway!


When I was on the e.l.f. website I noticed some new(ish) colors so I thought we should take a look at them! I know these are not really Winter or Holiday colors but let's be honest it's gonna be over in a flash and then it will be Spring. These are very versatile colors and a sparkly top coat (Twinkle Twilight) just gives you even more ways to rock them. 

Prissy Chrissy made me laugh; that name! I knew a Chrissy back in my school days who was definitly prissy. This soft peach creme is a nice palette cleanser but not quite a nude so you still get some nice color. I used 2 coats for this swatch stick but I really think this one will need 3 to eliminate any streaks and sheer spots. The creamy fomula was easy to apply.

I have nothing quite like Prissy Chrissy; it's definitly a peach tone but with a touch of pink and has a brightness to it like nothing in my stash. Because this is warmer toned than Barielle's Kiss Me Kate I don't think it will give me lobster hands.  

Dragon Fruit is a punchy watermelon pink creme with a touch of softness. I am not crazy for pinks but this one won me over. It's one of those great, universally flatttering pinks. I used 2 coats for the swatch stick and it was a creamy, easy to apply formula.

Barielle, A Little Exotic / Dragon Fruit / Barielle, London High Tea.

Meadow Mist is a Greige that leans more grey than beige. You might also call it a cool toned taupe. Either way I dig colors like these; It looks so chic on nails. My swatch stick shows 2 coats but you could easily make do with one easy coat. Another great creamy formula.

e.l.f., Misty Haze / Meadow Mist / Barielle, Taupe Notch.

Meadow Mist / China Glaze, Don't Get Derailed. 

High Tide is a dark teal creme; beautiful, but the formula was a bit streaky for me. I only used 2 coats for the swatch stick but I still have a few sheer spots. This color is especially hot right now and both China Glaze and Barielle released a teal in their Fall Collections.

China Glaze, Well Trained / High Tide / Barielle, Boho Chic.

Twinkle Twilight is a shimmery top coat with white iridescent flakie glitter that flashes blue, pink, and gold. Very subtle yet beautiful. This is one coat on a clear swatch stick but I also tipped all the other colors with a single thin coat so you can see how it looks over each color. This gives a soft effect and applies nicely. I think it is quite similar to Essie's Pure Pearlfection but I couldn't find my old swatch of it.
