OMG….It’s really happening! Buff Nails…

Hi my lovely Swatchfesters. It has been a long long time since I posted and it’s not because I’m lazy. It’s because I have been developing my own nail polish brand and we are in the last throws of it.

Yes.

You read correctly.

I am making my own polish. I am super duper excited and I will share photos in the next couple of posts of my swatching / colour choices / bottle selection (and I have a logo and everything). So if any of you loyal lovelies want to suggest which colours I should launch first, I am all ears.

Don’t let that make you think for one second that I’m not going to be swatching other polishes on this blog (even though you might see a lot of the Buff line as we go because, obviously I wouldn’t be making a polish I didn’t love the colour of and / or wasn’t unique), but deep down, I’m a nail polish lover and self declared nail polish aficionado so there’s going to be others. Smith & Cult, I’m talking about you baby (they’re next on my list and you might be getting some guest nail polish hands from my step-daughter and daughter too).

So sorry for the hiatus. There was mixing and swatching and guinea pigging in the Swatchfest household (included some brain cell loss. I joked at the smell of mixing polish bases) and now I’m good to go with more swatching and posting.

Love always, Kathy and the Swatchfest family.

CND Vinylux Indigo Frock #176

Wow do I love me some deep blues for Autumn (Fall) and Winter. Who am I kidding? I love blues all year round, but Indigo Frock is such a deep greyed blue that it just screams cooler weather. It’s like a dark wintery night.

CND Vinylux Field Fox #185

Hello my lovelies. It has been a hectic couple of weeks and I have been polishing but have had zero time to take photos of my slapped on polish upon my fingies. Yes. I meant fingies and not fingers.

Today I have a beauty for you in the form of a Vinylux polish – I have been vinyluxing of late because I don’t have time to repaint and repaint and repaint (so I broke my Dior run for a little while) and have found the wear time to be EXCEPTIONAL on these ones lately. I am going to not only show you a polish but this is 8 days of wear of Field Fox. Yep. 8 DAYS! Here’s the ubiquitous bottle shot:

Dior Vernis Rose #499

I have another Dior swatch, this time a beautiful shimmery warm rose pink in the shade Rose. Gotta love a name that is to the point. This is Rose. ‘Nough said.

Dior has been releasing polishes with the lip launches and I picked up Lili (a gorgeous beige) back when they launched their Rouge Dior Baumes.

Here’s Lili in the bottle.
