Baroness X Ex Libris nail polish collection swatches + review

*Promotional Samples used in today’s post*

Good morning everyone! Today I have a doozy of a post, probably one of the biggest posts I’ve ever done, so let’s jump right in. I’ll be showing you swatches of Baroness X‘s Ex Libris collection, each polish 3 different ways – by itself, over black, and over a similar color. Since there are so many photos, I’ve done collages for each way shown. Individual pictures will be available for view on this pinterest board. Okay, here we go!

Before we get into all the pictures, just a quick word about formula on these. I had zero, zip, nada problems with each of the polishes. They performed flawlessly, by themselves and over other polishes.

Okay, phew! Still with me? I hope so! To be honest, I was surprised by how much I liked Molino and Quixotica. The best part is how well these can be layered with any polish for a stunning combination. If you’re interested, the Ex Libris collection can be purchased from Baroness X in full or mini sizes (I hear the minis are quite good!), or each polish can be purchased individually.

I’d love to hear your thoughts so hit me with them in the comments below.
