The Polish Bar is one of my favourite polish brands, so how did these end up in the vault for a year? Well originally I did these swatches to accompany the Crumpet Chats To that I did with Janice, but then discovered I couldn't be arsed to edit ALL the photos for the post lol ... and then there's this reason ....
First up we have Cloudy Skies. This is a lovely cloudy speckled base, with larger blue-purple-violet hex glitters.
If you look closely, you'll observe a lovely yellow swathe on the middle nail. I was cooking curry the same day and got some powder on my nails. Until I saw the photos, I thought I'd managed to get it all off. Ooops.
In my blue stash video I lamented the lack of variety in blue polishes, and how you never see one built on a more yellow base. Well, I think this is why.
Open Sky does have yellower tones to it, and I just don't like what that does to my skin tone. I love the glitter components in this polish, but I didn't love the base colour.
Ultra Violet is a glitter topper in a sheer pinkish base. It's layered here over a Jade bright pink polish.
I didn't like this as much as I expected, but I was hesitant to add more. I think I should have added more, to get more sparkliness.
Violet Sky - gah, I love this one. I layered it over Sation Miss Emo Shun All and then matted it and ... well, it doesn't get more perfect.
Violet Sky is a glitter topper in various shades and sizes of blue and violet - love this combo.
Finally we have Wistful. This is gorgeous. A lovely creamy lilac base, littered with blue, pink and purple glitters.
A proper Crumpet polish if ever I saw one!
