Swatches | Ten Three Labs

Hey guys, I know its been a really long time since I last posted on here. I've just been really lazy and unmotivated to be honest but I'm trying to change that. Last month I was prepping to go on a cruise so I was a little busy. Once the cruise flew by (sad face) I was just really unmotivated and still in that relaxing on a beach mood. Anyways, lets move on to the swatches.

Description: Deep purple.

Description: Antique gold with golden sparkles.

Description: Blackened green with a slight orange shift.

Description: Deep cranberry red.

Description: Murky blue with turquoise and green shimmers.

Description: No description but it looks to be a brownish brick red color.

Overall, I'm really happy with everything I got. I really love The German smudge stick. I got Morgue Water as a sample and even though I haven't tried it on yet, I don't think it will look good on my dark skin but we will see.

Have you tried Ten Three Labs yet? What is your favorite product from them?

The Little LacquerBean: Faded Xmas & Sweet Irish Cream | Swatches & Review

So I was browsing Instagram one day and I came across a picture that The Little LacquerBean had posted about a sale she was having to make room for new stock. The sale was 50% off everything in her store so I obviously had to buy some cute polishes.

Ordered: January 19, 2015
Shipping Label Created: January 20, 2015
Delivered: January 22, 2015

Description: Faded Xmas is a thermal that is a lovely soft mauve pink when warm and a deeper neutral evergreen green when cold. Faded Xmas has a holographic finish.

My Opinion: I love love this polish! Both colors are so pretty and it was really east to apply. 

Description: Sweet Irish Cream is a nude polish with a gold shimmer and holographic finish.

My Opinion: This polish is gorgeous! It's such a pretty nude shade and it compliments my skin tone. The only problem I had with this is that the polish got kind of goopy when I tried putting on a 2nd and 3rd coat. I'm not sure if it's the formula or if it's something I did. Between coats I always close the polish and shake it side to side before I used it again, so I don't know.

Overall I'm really happy with my purchase. I had also purchased straight nail vinyls but I haven't used  it yet. Everything shipped really fast, I was actually surprised. To purchase your own bottle from The Little LacquerBean click here.

What are your favorites from The Little LacquerBean?
