Swatches in Pink and Red

Hello, sweet readers! Today I have a couple of swatches and a question for you: I usually put my photo-heavy NotD posts beneath a cut/jump. How do you feel about that? I added a poll to my right sidebar and would appreciate it if you shared your opinion with me.

Now let’s take a look at today’s polishes. I got both from Sara’s giveaway and was especially thrilled to try the Boots polishes. So I’ll start with one of those.

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour Twinkle 25

This polish intrigued me as soon as I saw it. It’s a cute pink, warm and not too pale, with multicoloured glitter. Twinkle is sheer and you will see on the photos that the free tip looks a bit peachy. I think this colour would look best on very short nails or over a nude base.
The application was very nice and even. The brush is flat and supple, but not too wide. Overall this is a lovely basic colour, very wearable and the glitter adds some interest.

This is Twinkle in two coats without top coat:

And this is Twinkle in three coats with a coat of Seche Vite:

OPI My Chihuahua Bites!

This red creme is hot. I don’t wear a lot of reds, but this is pinkish, bright and cheerful enough for me to love it. Two coats are almost opaque, three are just perfect.
My Chihuahua Bites! is one of those creme polishes that are incredibly smooth and buttery. And the application is perfect. I really need to get more OPI polishes. I probably won’t wear this colour on its own, but I can see this as a Konadicure base or with a funky french tip.

Here is My Chihuahua Bites! in two coats, without top coat:

I hope you liked these swatches and please help me decide whether to keep or stop using jumps!
