Goodbye! For now!

Hello, lovelies!

It's probably pretty clear at this point, but I wanted to put it out there anyway. I am on a long-term hiatus from blogging. I've been struggling to keep up for a while now and I'd rather just reduce the stress by taking purposeful time off then feeling like I'm constantly behind. I can't say at this point if I'll be back or not in the future, but I'll continue to be around as part of the community. I still love painting my nails! My life just doesn't allow for the added time necessary to run this blog the way I want to do so.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who's supported me during my journey at Seriously Swatched! You are all amazing!

Thank you,
Cordia

Swatch & Review - Rainbow Honey Cafe Con Leche

Hello, lovelies! Today's polish is a wonderful neutral from Rainbow Honey called Cafe Con Leche. This is from their October 2014 Mystery Bag.


Cafe Con Leche is my neutral! This matches my skin color really well and the gold shimmer gives it a lovely extra touch. The formula was also very nice and applied evenly and cleanly in two coats. Yep. Love this one.

Swatch & Review - Layla Titanium Sky

Hello, lovelies! Today's polish is a super shiny metallic from Layla. This is Titanium Sky!


Oh man, this polish! If only I had the nails to do it justice. This one needs a really smooth base and it would have the mirror effect it claims on the bottle. I could actually see reflections in this polish! I believe there are base coats out there designed to enhance polishes like this, but I didn't have any handy. I still really enjoyed it though!

Swatch & Review - Zoya Selene

Hello, lovelies! Today's polish is from Zoya's Paradise Sun Summer 2015 Collection! This is Selene!


I was really pleased by this one! It looks pretty sheer in the bottle and I was worried the coverage would be sparse. But this was only two coats! And the shimmer in the emerald base is wonderful. I love this polish!

Swatch & Review - Zoya Isa

Hello, lovelies! Today's polish is from Zoya's Paradise Sun Summer 2015 Collection. This is Isa!


Blergh! Isa is STUNNING! And my camera lost its mind. This fantastic purple has such a rich, blue shimmer that any photo with my actual skin color made Isa look like a sky blue. This is two coats. I really recommend this one. It's wonderful.
