Summer Pedi Combo swatches


Today I thought I would share the combinations of polishes that have been on my toes this summer (don't worry if you don't like pics of feet...all combos are shown on a nail wheel).  I tend to leave my toe polish on for a while...sometimes 2 or 3 weeks depending on if I get tired of it or if it chips.  Normally I get tired of the combo before it chips.  The number of base color coats is a guess on each because I always use a different number on my big toes versus the rest.  Under all these, I used a generic base coat from L'Oreal to try to prevent staining.

First nail is micro & bar glitter:  2-3 coats of Revlon Top Speed in Royal with 1 coat of Wet 'n Wild Fergie in New Years Kiss.  I had this on over the 4th of July.  The Fergie line is at Walgreens and Rite Aid.  Revlon Royal is just about everywhere.

Second nail is holo micro glitter:  3-4 coats of Color Zone Baby Bubblegum Pink (I made up that name since I can't find names of Color Zone polishes anywhere) with a coat of Love & Beauty/Forever 21 Silver (holographic glitter).  Baby Bubblegum Pink borders on fluorescent bright by itself.  I find Color Zone polishes in sets at Marshalls and TJ Maxx.  This combo is what's on my toes right now if you're curious.  :)

Third nail is an attempt at nail art:  2-3 coats of Color Club You Got Soul-ar with dots of Color Club Sky High and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.  I used the ball end of a pin from my sewing kit for the dots.  This only worked out on the swatch actual pedi was just You Got Soul-ar by itself and it was super bright.  Both of these are limited editions (I got mine in 2 collection sets from Burlington Coat Factory towards the end of July). I had a couple issues with You Got Soul-ar.  This is what I had on at the beginning of August.

Fourth nail is the return of glitter:  2-3 coats of NYC Hint of Mint - limited edition from spring 2011 with a coat of OPI Nothin Mousie Bout it and also fished out & placed the hearts (3 on the big toes, 1 each on the rest).  Nothin Mousie Bout it is also limited edition and came out June 2012.  I put this combo on when I took the Revlon & WnW combo off.

Hmmm...Apparently what I had on my toes before the start of July was boring since I don't remember what it was and there aren't any trials on my wheel.

What do you think of all my pedi combos?  Do you like this way of showing them?
