March Miscellaneous Swatches

**The polishes in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Once again, it's the end of the month (Seriously, how did March just fly by?!)! I've got some undies to show you today. Surprisingly there are only two. I'm going to keep this short and sweet today. I've got a lunch date with the lovely lady behind Twee & Honey today. (Be prepared for a TON of swatches in the coming weeks!)

Cinema Swatch Lacquers Memoirs of a Geisha Collection

**The products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

I have a new (to me) indie to show you all today. Cinema Swatch Lacquers makes 5 free polishes with micas, pigments and solvent resistant glitters. They are movie lovers, like I am, so all their collections are inspired by movies. The collection I am showing you today is the Memoirs of a Geisha Collection.

Zoya Monet

**The product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All my opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Along side the Awaken Collection is a topper named MonetMonet is described as "a multicolored cellophane holographic special effect topper". It is a pink tinted jelly base filled with multicolored iridescent hex glitter. In the bottle it looks like a fun and versatile glitter topper, once you pull the brush out, you see that it's thick and gloopy. It's not the normal beautiful formula that Zoya is known for. It's extremely difficult to work with. I did swatch it over all the polishes from the Awaken Collection

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Today, I've swatched the Awaken Collection from Zoya. Since this crazy weather refuses to let us believe that Spring is actually upon us, the Awaken Collection will make sure you're ready for Spring despite how cold it may be outside.

Finger Paints Kaleidoscope Collection

**The products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I've had the Finger Paints Kaleidoscope collection since it arrived at my local Sally Beauty Supply, but it got buried under a ton of indies and I had forgotten about them. So glad to have found these and swatched them. I was only able to get a few from the original flakie collection, I couldn't let this one get away from me too. I know a lot of bloggers weren't thrilled with them, I had to find out for myself.

Secret Cupid Swap

**These products were gifted to me by a friend in a swap. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Back in February, a group I'm in did a Secret Cupid Swap. It was so much fun and I got some amazing things! Unfortunately, it took me until now to be able to swatch them. Better late than never. The ever lovely Jayme from Varnished Reputation got my name so these are all the beauties that she picked for me. It just happens that everything she got me happened to be on my want lists. A lot of new to me indies. I have so much to show you...ready?!?!

Miscellaneous LynBDesign polishes

**The products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

When Jenna at LynBDesigns had her anniversary sale I had to jump in. Of course I found a few that I, surprisingly, didn't have yet so I snagged them and an LE she brought back for a gift with purchase. I thought I'd swatch them all for you all. The three I purchased are still in the shop (and all happen to be from the Nightmare Begins Collection) so scroll through the swatches, check out the sale code at the end of the post (YES I SAID SALE CODE), then click the link and do some shopping!!

Cameo Colours Lacquers The L Collection (original and holo versions)

*These polishes were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.*
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

I've had the following polishes for quite a while, but after her first stock sold out so quickly I decided to put them aside until they were restocked. Cameo Colours Lacquers' The L Collection is a set of 4 beautiful ultrachromes that you can choose to get regular or with holo added. I have all 8 to show you. Luckily for you, they were restocked last night!!! There are a ton of pictures so we are going to jump right in. 


Lusty is described as "a gorgeous ultrachrome that shifts that shifts from blue through purple, goldish green to warm red". This is three coats of Lusty. Two coats for full opacity, I wanted to ensure a rich, vibrant color. And what a gorgeous blue this is. $10






Luminous is described as "a lovely ultrachrome that shifts from silver through green, blue and purple". This is three coats of Luminous. The stunning color reminds me of a scarab as it definitely leans towards more of a green than it does a silver. $10






Lovestruck is described as "a beautiful ultrachrome that shifts from cyan through purple into red-orange, with hints of green and gold". This is three coats of Lovestruck. I can't get over the colors in this beauty. It's very hypnotic. $10






Loyal is described as "the lovechild of LuminousLusty and Lovestruck, it's a little bit darker and a smidgen deeper and you never know which way it's going to shift". This is three coats of Loyal. This beauty ends up looking like a deep grey with hints of blue, it's almost like a lake in the moonlight. Such a mysterious shade. $10








This is the above Lusty with the added holo. $10





This is the above Luminous with the added holo. $10





This is the above Lovestruck with the added holo. $10





This is the above Loyal with the added holo. $10





The formula of each of these was perfection. A bit thinner for the holos, three coats is still needed for those, but you could easily do two coats for the regular ultrachromes. The brush was so easy to use and manipulate that I didn't have to clean up at all. Not a bad thing to say about any of these. The L Collection is a polish lovers dream. I'm only sorry her re-release was so long after the first because you all deserve a chance to see how amazing these are for yourselves. You can get them in her shop for $10 per bottle or $40 for the whole set

If you're international you can also grab these beauties at http://www.anjo-beauty.com/. They don't have many left, so go look!! 

The L Collection is beyond amazing. Get your set while you still can!! The only question is, do you get original or holo?

These swatches were topped with Magpie Shine top coat ($7) and I used Sweet Nectar cuticle oil ($6) to hydrate my cuticles. Both from A Girl Obsessed
