China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “brilliant beige with peach undertones.” At one angle, it’s a brilliant champagne gold, and when tilted, it gets a little bronzy, almost pink-bronze. The shift is subtle, though–don’t expect a serious duochrome here. I don’t have any other similar shades that have a little shift like this one does. Chanel Delight is a bit darker, less golden. MAC Soiree has a similar story–a little darker, not so golden. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar golden coloring.

Bobbi Brown Bone Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Bone Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “cream sparkle.” It’s a pale, golden ivory with lots of sparkle and shine.  What’s really crazy is that it looks very yellow in the pan, but it’s not really yellow (just lightly warm and cream-colored) swatched and applied. Cinderella Ball Gown is similar, whiter. Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra is also a bit whiter. Givenchy Lune Mysterieuse is similar. theBalm Tempting Tara is more metallic.

SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer

SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “charcoal rock glitter infused with rhyolite.” This has a murky gray base with olive green shimmer and circular black and light gray flecks. It’s the mixture of shimmer and glitter that makes this unlike other polish I own. I don’t even know of what I could mix that would yield this result, even if I layered products. I’d love to hear any possible dupes if you’ve come across anything!
