Too Cute-Icle Grand Opening Swatches and Review

So I have some great swatches for you today! My fellow Blogger Jess @ Too Cute-icle has opened her own shop located here! She was gracious enough to send me three of her polishes to swatch and review! She has really outdone herself and I'm so proud to say I know her!!!

Let's get on to the pretties shall we?!

First up is Aurora Snow! Aurora Snow is a white and teal duochrome base with turquoise and silver glitters.  In this photo is one coat of Aurora Snow over Orly Decades of Dysfunction and on my ringer finger is Orly Shockwave, with one coat of Seche Vite on all nails.  This polish applied beautifully and I love the teal flash! I played with this polish after swatching and I can tell you it looks awesome over a variety of colors. China Glaze Bizarre Blurple was among one of my favorite combos.

Next I have a funny little polish called Butthurt Banana!  This polish was made as a joke about the drama we all come across in the Nail Polish Community. Jess describes this polish as "a shocking, in your face yellow with red, brown, and black glitters. This shimmery yellow base and odd color combination may LOOK intimidating, but just like those people who get offended so easily (that this polish was named after), it's all bark and no bite."  
I did two different swatches of this polish, my index and ring fingers are 2 coats of Butthurt Banana alone, and my middle and pinkie are 2 coats over Sinful Colors Snow me White. All 4 fingers are topped with a coat of Seche Vite. You can see the difference between the two, when BB is layered over white it makes the yellow really pop, and if it's just used alone it appears more of a golden yellow.

I saved the BEST for last. This was my favorite polish out of the bunch I was sent. Frosty the Penguin! A mix of blue and white glitters in a clear base, and also some White holo glitters thrown in.  I used Verity Hot Blue for my base color, 2 coats of Frosty The Penguin and topped it all with a coat of Seche Vite. You can see in some parts of the photo the white holo glitters kind of disappear but when the light hits them WOW! Applied like a dream. I can't wait to use this polish again for a few winter mani ideas I have floating around in my head!
