2 Swatches

Today I wanted to swatch a lot of new polishes of mine, but I don't feel like doing all of them today so maybe I'll do 2 more tomorrow and 2 the next day.  I went to 5 Below yesterday and picked up 3 polishes- Funky Fingers Tinsel Town, Fresh Paint Olive You, and Fresh Paint Spruce Street.  Fresh Paint is a division of the makers of color club and Funky Fingers, just in case you didn't recognize the name.  I've never tried it before but so far so good. The colors I swatched today are Essie Armed and Ready, and Fresh Paint Olive You.  A&R is a very hard to capture gold shimmer in a gunmetal grey.  Olive You is also hard to get on camera, it's an olive foil with gold shimmer too but this one looks very silver in the pictures.
 Here's A&R. Second photo is with flash because that is the only way I could get the shimmers in the picture.

This is Olive You.  Like I said, looks silvery but it really has more of a green tone than in the pictures.

As for the formulas, they were both great so I have no complaints.  Essie's new brushes seem better than before.  I don't even know if they changed it or not, but the brushes seem really soft and nice.

Anyways, have a nice weekend.
