Orly Swatches - Right Amount of Evil and Spazmatic
Yesterday, I reached over 2,800 views and I can't remember the last time or if I ever had this many views in a single day but I'm thinking this might set the record on my blog ever since I started. And the sad thing is I actually don't really set many goals for my blog but have seen an increased in traffic in the past month or two so I'm pleased to know that people are reading or looking at my blog.
One of my main goal here is simple. Post regularly, daily if possible. I try to do a variety of posts and keep up with the new stuff.
Yesterday, I broke a nail. Yikes, looks bad. I won't be able to do new swatches for a while but thankfully, I had some nail polishes that I swatched previously but didn't have a chance to post yet. I scored a good deal with these two polishes that I got from TJ Maxx a fewweeks ago for $6.99 (together) and here are the swatches for yall.
Right Amount of Evil. Can't really say that it is evil but this polish is straight up WICKED! I fell completely under its spell the moment I swatched it. It has an orange jelly base that goes on sheer but it has enough pigmentation to offer a fairly decent color pay off in just two coats. It also has fine bright pink shimmers that I think is what makes this polish so devilishly gorgeous. There is a mix of silver hex and small holographic bar glitters that screams "look at my wicked nails!" lol.
The formula wasn't too thick or thin. It has just the right consistency, making application a breeze. The glitters spread out fairly easily and didn't give me much trouble. I am wearing two coats on the swatches and a clear top coat.
Spazmatic...Hmm, I dunno what that means but from the looks of it, it is just lovely. It has a clear base with very fine purple-ish blue shimmers and sapphire blue glitters. Sapphire blue glitters have been on my wishlist so I was stoked when I came across this polish. Here, I have it layered over Sparitual Undercurrent, a deep dusty blue. I also swatched it over a white polish on my ring finger so you get a feel for it. The base isn't too thick or thin. It picks up a fair amount of glitters but if you like a lot of glitters, you would have to do 2 to 3 coats. The sapphire glitters kind of have a mind of their own and you would have to shuffle them around but overall, I didn't have much trouble with it.
