On February 5 I posted here my love of Ruby White Tips indie polish. At that time I had only swatched P Wagon and to tell you the truth, I hated to take it off. It is such a beautiful neutral but of course, I swatch and review nearly every day. So today I decided to give you more insight in a quick review of the other three polishes I have from RWT. I love every single one!
Here we have the shimmery purple, Cleptomaniac. It’s a foil shimmer with undercurrents of pink shimmer and it’s a sultry one that will surely steal your heart. The formula is nearly a one coater but I did two here.
Next we have my favorite in Clutzy. I’ll admit it now. After these swatches I painted this one on every finger! The nearly mirror shine of this color shifting foil goes from pale blue to silver to lavender. And in the sun you can see the spectraflair-like sparkle that will amaze you. Again, the formula is a dream to work with, great brush, and I used two coats.
Last but not least, we have Better Call Saul and it’s the most sheer of the bunch. I used her here in three but if you painted it over another shade of the same bunch, or any neutral cream, you could get away with two. Same high quality formula and smooth and easy to work with. Just in a sheer version. With healthy nails, you could pull this off in one coat as a sheer whisper of color. It seems like a white, but it’s more like an ever-so-pale platinum with a hint of greenish and blush shimmer. Really unique. Here are a couple shots of Clutzy in the sun and shade just to show you how the micro holographic glitters shine.
I’m looking forward to getting more of the gorgeous shades from Ruby White tips. They are really beautiful! Remember to visit Laura Toff’s store here at http://www.etsy.com/shop/RubyWhiteTips and tell her I sent you.
I am compelled to sing the praises of RubyWhiteTips at http://www.etsy.com/shop/RubyWhiteTips, and shout to all within earshot, “These multichromes are amazing!” Granted, I did receive them as a giveaway prize from Kristi of BeginNails at beginnails.blogspot.com. And I’m cool with that. LOL
The first swatch I did after receiving this nail mail yesterday was P wagon (I shortened the name for G-rated reasons ;-)). It is from RWT’s owner, Laura Toff’s Kill Bill collection. Seen here, I used three coats for depth, but you certainly could use it over a variety of undercoats such as black, deep rose, or whatever floats your wagon! Indoors on a dreary day it shade shifts from shimmery rose, to rose gold, nude shimmer to gray. then I got in the car and sun came out and they were more like a peachy gold in one angle. Then rose gold in another. It’s a wonder I didn’t get into a wreck!
The formula went on smooth and silky and dried QUICK. It took no time to brush on all three coats. So streaking, no cuticle flooding. Perfection. The only reason I’m taking it off tomorrow is I’m dying to see what the other four beauties look like.
The top photo are all four bottles I received with the other three waiting in the wings to be swatched. From left, Clutzy, aptly named after a mishap Laura had while mixing this gorgeous concoction. It’s a micro shimmery mix of purply, bluish, pinky blinky yumminess! I can’t wait to try her over black, white, deep blue and purple as well as all by her lonesome.
Center bottom is Better Call Saul from one of six of the Breaking Bad collection. I don’t watch the show but I’d imagine from what I’ve seen of the TV previews, any one of the characters could inspire a number of shades! BCS is what I would call a nudey shade shifter. I literally had to put this under a magnifying glass to see just what micro shimmers dwelt in this pale yet complex broth. My eyes saw pink or magenta, teal/blue, rose gold and silver teeny tiny micro shimmers held by a silver nude pearlescent base. This is what helps it transform with every movement of your fingers. I know this is going to be one of my summer faves, especially on my toes.
In back of course is P Wagon which I’ve already attemtped to describe!
Lastly on the right is Cleptomaniac from the Breaking Bad collection. The is aptly name because one look and it will steal your heart. It’s blue, it’s purple, it’s violet, it’s got magenta flashes of light. It’s like a bioluminescent creature, lighting up every digit it rests upon. I’m a sucker for purple anything so getting this daring diva was a huge score.
