Hiya guys. The week off work has begun and I couldn't be happier! I slept in till past noon and didn't have to wake up to a puppy clawing my face. It's going to be a good day, lol. Today I have swatches for two gorgeous cremes from Bad Bitch Polish's upcoming Spring release. Bad Bitch Polish is a three-free and cruelty free indie that has been around since last Fall. They are still fairly new, but their line has been steadily growing and they have a ton of new releases on the way.
Bad Bitch Polish will be releasing their next set of polishes this Friday, March 20th. Now let's get to the swatches!
Urban Rainforest is a luscious dark green creme shade. The name is so spot on for this polish, because it literally is forest green! Greens are rarely on my radar and almost nonexistent in my collection, which makes this the perfect addition. The consistency of the formula was a little bit on the thin side, which caused some minimal cuticle flooding. Luckily, the dark tone does not stain so cleanup is really easy if you do get it on your cuticles whilst applying. Depending on how heavy handed your application, you may be able to get away with just one coat. Personally, I apply my polish very lightly and prefer two coats for a fully opaque finish. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed it off with a glossy topcoat.
Quad Shot is a rich tone of seal brown in a creme finish. Very luscious finish, but nothing too exciting. Definitely a must-have shade if you don't own a similar one in your collection. The formula for this one was not as thin as Urban Rainforest and I didn't experience any issues evening out the layers. Nice consistency and each layer was neither too thick or too thin. For these swatches, I used three thin coats and sealed with a topcoat. I couldn't resist the shade and had to do some nail art over it, which I'll be showing you guys later on this week.
Overall I'm really liking the earthy tone based cremes for this time of year. Normally you see colors like this and think of dreary Fall, but that's definitely not the case here. It's been such a nice variation lately to have more than just pastels in the Spring time.
How do you guys feel about darker shades in the Spring time?
As I mentioned before, Urban Rainforest and Quad Shot are releasing Friday, March 20th. Mark your calendars if you're interested in the lush cremes and don't miss out in their release.
