They go from short to shorter back to short and then to nubs. Five minutes before I was starting to swatch all my new NYX Girls, I chipped a corner on one of my nails. So I patched it up with some acrylic. With all the swatches I had to do, I ended up patching three more times as all the polish removal would remove the acrylic after about 5 swatchs. And to top matters off, halfway through another nail split. Argh!!!!!!! By the last three swatches, I was praying my nails would hold on.
However, once I’m down a path, I have a hard time turning back – especially when I’m doing a series as I like to see them with the nails all the same length. I also had a few people wanting to see what these colors looked like as they are new. I’ll have to apologize in advance as some of these swatches are less than optimal. So for better or worse, I have 20 swatches of the new NYX Girls that I’ll be showing over the next five days.
Sexy Plum is a blackened wine. Normally I’m not wild about these almost black colors, but I liked this one. The two greys were slightly different than the average silvers. Smoldering had a hint of wine and Charcoal Pearl had just a hint of mossy green. Moonwalk was just a gorgeous silver-lilac foil. All swatches in this seris were 2 coats unless othewise stated.
