Love & Beauty Textured Polishes, @ Forever 21

I always love to check out the nail polishes at Forever 21! They're super cheap and usually pretty good, and sometimes are even dupes of more expensive or hard to find polishes (like the "pink speckled glitter" that was a dupe of OPI I Lily Love You.). Recently I came upon a few new textured polishes on their site, and decided to give them a try.

Love & Beauty "Black Glam" (or "Purple/Gold"), no topcoat

This is "Black Glam" or, the more generic name on the actual label, "Purple/Gold". Black Glam is a beautiful mix of gold, pink, copper, magenta, green, and purple glitter flecks in a dark aubergine base. It's basically a cross between OPI's "Vesper" and "Alcatraz... Rocks"-- the base is the same deep violet/eggplant as Vesper with the multi-colored sparkle of Alcatraz, and it looks freakin' awesome!

Indigo Bananas: Fiery the Angels Fell

Indigo Bananas released a gorgeous collection of polishes mid-Summer that I just have to (finally!) share, because they're pretty much my dream colors! How does Andrea do it?! Fiery the Angels Fell is a set of five beautiful colors inspired by (mostly the film) Blade Runner.

 Here is the collection's namesake, Fiery the Angels Fell, an incredible and vibrant "coral red foil type duochrome with small holographic shimmer in it, in a red base," as described by Andrea of Indigo Bananas. The beautiful coral red shifts into shades of orange and tangerine at an angle, and the duochrome is very apparent both indoors and outside. The formula was stellar and became opaque in two easy coats!

Darling Diva: Cray Cray, Shadow Puppets, & Bubble Time (pre-revision)

Today I have a few beautiful polishes sent from Darling Diva to share with you!

Darling Diva Cray Cray

Cray Cray is a very unique topper with a lot of awesome going on! It combines a lovely lavender-pink-copper shift with a holographic effect, and is most intense layered over darker colors. Here I have it swatched over Essie Naughty Nautical, a vibrant teal. I love this combination! It's almost like a holographic "Aqua Lily".
