This was an interesting batch of NYX Advanced Salon Formula polishes to swatch. With two of them, Magnolia and Sumptuous being so similar in color, I actually had to redo swatches because I kept getting them mixed up.
I continue to be impressed with this line just for the pigmentation alone. Although not quite a one coat color, they comes close. Some of them are just a touch thick, but nothing extreme. If it really bothers you, it’s nothing a drop or two of thinner won’t take care of.
The first two colors shown are the two I had troubles differentiating. Although they look pretty different in the individual swatches, the bottles are so incredibly similar that I had to repaint to make sure I had the right swatch to the right bottle – something that becomes pretty important when you’re labeling the swatches. Magnolia is a bit more mauve than Sumptuous but the biggest difference is that Sumptuous has a blue iridescence that Magnolia doesn’t.
At first, English Rose struck me as a mediocre pink that leaned to coral. But once it was on my nails, I loved the pink iridescence that showed up. This raised its ranking for me. Acid Pink is my favorite of this crowd. While the others have a quiet beauty going on, this one is a bit more obvious. Acid Pink (and so aptly named) is a hot pink neon with glass flecks. Can it get any better than that?
