The Equestria Collection - Swatches, Part 1

I love wearing my nail polishes as much as I enjoy making them. Here are the first three Equestria Collection polishes on my very own nails!

Pinkie Promise over Illamasqua Collide
Thoughts: The yellow/gold shimmer in this polish really comes through on anything darker than the pink base it's in, so I would prefer to layer this one over itself or lighter shades like a soft pink or white.

20% Cooler over (L-R) Revlon Pink Chiffon, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightening, Sally Hansen Limestone, Color Club Factory Girl.
Thoughts: Looks cute over bright colors! I love a matte top coat over CC Factory Girl for the true Rainbow Dash effect! See here:

See? CC Factory Girl is almost the perfect blue!

The Worst Possible Thing over Zoya Ibiza
Thoughts: This is maybe a thicker coat than I would normally wear, but it is so complex and really difficult to stop admiring. I haven't had sunlight since putting this one on, so the pictures are in artificial light (top) and cloudy light. The macro shot is of my ring finger - doesn't it look awesome?

My sister stole my bottle of A Little Kindness, so maybe we can expect swatches of that one soon! I'll get to wearing the other two sometime this week. And look for a special blog post tomorrow... :D
