I have 4 more awesome IBD swatches today. These gel nail colors are amazing!
Maui Sunset is a gorgeous red shimmer with a purple undertone. This color is amazing and definitely one of my favorites. It needs 3 coats to be fully opaque. The 3rd coat really adds depth to the shimmer and it is beautiful. I can’t stop oohing and ahhing over these pictures.
Smokey Plum is a grayish purple cream. This is one of my absolute favorite colors. 3 coats of this is mostly opaque, but I did a 4th thin coat for full opacity. The 4th coat makes it look slightly more gray, than purple, but I’m OCD when it come to things being opaque, so I always go for the 4th coat.
This color is brown with a gold shimmer. It’s perfect for Fall! So perfect in fact, that I used it for my Thanksgiving manicure. It looks absolutely stunning paired with IBD All That Glitters. This needs 3 coats to be fully opaque.
This color is a beautiful pinkish/reddish/brownish with a slightly blue undertone. This is a really difficult color to describe. Unfortunately, this color fades. 🙁 It’s so sad because I love this color when I first paint it on, but after a few days it fades to be more brown and the blue undertone is completely lost. If browns and reds look good on you, then you’ll probably love this color, even after the fading. Unfortunately browns look a-not-okay on me unless they are dark brown like Jungle Fever.
I hope these swatches are helpful to you. See all of my swatches in the Swatch Gallery. If you want me to swatch a specific color, please let me know! I am happy to take reader requests. Just leave me a comment on facebook, pinterest, or instagram. Or, you can always email me at email@example.com.
