Current mani here! I’ve been wanting to use Bolide from Turtle Tootsie Polishes since I bought it but everything I tried just didn’t click. I finally forced myself to sit down with it and come up with other complementary colors and a technique. And yes, I know you’ve seen a similar technique earlier this week. This technique was one I saw from yagala on instagram.

I love how the fluid nail art really looks like swirled candy or chocolate or even coffee. I started off with a shiny top coat and though I liked it, I really wanted to try it with a matte top coat.

Another comparison for you! I hope you find these helpful, I always like to know when a polish comes out that might be a duplicate (dupe) for an older (not available anymore) polish.

Today I’m comparing Purple Matte Sparkle to Happy Hour Hop to Ink. Suede. As you can see, no dupes here! The WnW is way more sheer than I remember. :/ And the OPI stains. :/ So I would definitely choose the BHB – especially at the price point!

So when I swatched the Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Matte Sparkle polishes, I pulled out some other polishes for comparison. For today’s post, I pulled out OPI Russian Navy Suede.

They are very similar, but the OPI has a silvery base where the BHB has a golden base. The base to the OPI also seems more tightly packed with the silvery base, or maybe the particles are larger? The good thing about the BHB though is that it doesn’t stain like the OPI! 😀

So I dunno why these are called sparkle because without top coat, they don’t really sparkle. :/ They are beautiful polishes though, and really, for the price they can’t be beat! Since formulas are almost the same across the board, I’ll talk about that at the end of the post. Continue reading

Geesh, the title of this is a flippin’ mouthful, isn’t it? In a Facebook group I’m in, there was a suggestion to compare this Blackheart Beauty to an older Sinful Colors. Let’s see how they compare in the bottle!

Holy Hera, is this a gorgeous combo or what! I love when a mani just is so beautiful you can’t help but stare at it. This is the second time I’ve used LL&P (the first being a pedicure), and it knocks me out every time. Gorgeous polish!

Blackheart Beauty Shimmer Satin Matte nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Blackheart Beauty Shimmer Satin Matte, 2 coat and no top coat. Formula on this is thicker and it dries super fast. As I was using this under another polish (to be shown soon!), I wasn’t too worried about how well it looked – or didn’t look.

Blackheart Beauty is so creative with the name of their polishes aren’t they? 😀
