It’s been a busy week. My daughter’s HS prom is this weekend, and I have a friend coming in town and a wedding to attend on Sunday so I won’t have much time for swatching. I will be doing a French manicure for my daughter and I have some nail art planned to match the dress I’m wearing to the wedding, so you can expect some pictures of those next week.
In the meantime, I have a couple of Couture Gel Nail Polish swatches to share with you. Couture is a DIY brand meant for at-home use. I found that their starter kit is available on Amazon.com at a discount, though I don’t see the individual colors sold there.
These colors are from the Couture Spring 2013 collection. Application and soak-off were a breeze. The shimmery silver one is called High Maintenance. I wore this for a few days and loved it. It goes with everything and has just the right amount of sparkle for me.
The color below is Glam Squad. This one is the perfect combination of purple and pink. It looks pink next to purples, and purple next to pinks. I really like the uniqueness of the color. My lightbox washed the color out of these photos a bit, and it looks a little more pink than it actually was. I snapped a quick pic of this in regular lighting to try to capture the color a little better.
