Nail Mail and First Impressions

Nail mail from ImageBeauty!
Not too much to say about - they have a good selection of polishes including China Glaze, Color Club, Brucci, Zoya, and several others. Shipping was pretty reasonable- no thrills like but as long as my polishes arrive safely I can not complain.
So- what's in the box?!?
I picked up quite a few polishes from the China Glaze Hungry Games collection!

From left to right: Fast Track, Riveting, Luxe and Lush, Smoke and Ashes, and Harvest Moon

 There have been a lot of questions about Luxe and Lush- here is a close up shot. It is a polish composed of larger irregularly shaped pieces of mylar glitter. Not what I would consider a true flakie since these pieces don't lay totally flat on the nail but pretty never the less!

There have also been a lot of questions about how China Glaze Luxe and Lush compares to Color Club Covered in diamonds- without further ado, some comp shots.

No flash- similar size but Luxe and Lush has more orange flashes while Covered in Diamonds flashes green and blue

With flash

Next we have the Color Club Magnetic Force polishes

Left to right: Cop An Attitude, Magnetic Force, Electro-Midnight

You'll notice they look much brighter and closer to the promo shots with flash

I ordered these because the promo shots I saw made them look very bright and vibrant, very different than the China Glaze. In person, no so much- the Icing Blue/Purple magnetic was the brightest, Electro-Midnight fell somewhere between it and China Glaze Pull Me Close, but really was not that much different than Pull Me Close.

Finally, my first Brucci's! I have never seen these in stores, and there were a few colors I couldn't resist!

Left to right: Amelia's Amethyst, Grape Galaxy, and Heavenly Julia

Amelia's Amethyst looks incredible! A bright plum with red flashes- very excited to try it.

That's going to be all the nail mail for a while :) I certainly feel lucky to have some many new polishes to play with!
