Louityourself Nail Vinyls Swatch/Review

This is a little different review for me. But I know so many of you really love nail vinyl's and decals. And although I use them sporadically, its certainly isn't the first nail art I reach for.
Well, I can say with confidences that Louityourself has me really excited to use more!
There are so many to choose from in her shop! And I can see myself incorporating hand painted manicures and nail vinyl's in one. I am anxious to play more!
I definitely encourage you to take a look at her shop. Everything from chevron to pacman.
The quality is very good. Some are very detailed, thus making them very delicate. But I found that if I just worked very slowly to separate them it was fine. Be sure to have a set of tweezers on hand to help.
For now though, here is a couple manis using some of her Halloween vinyls.
Base is Wicked by Kickass Beauty a glolo. Look how amazing the vinyls look with glow in the dark polish!
Base is Serum N 5 in Flashing Lights
With Flash! Those skull eyes are hypnotic.
Have you tried any of these vinyls? What do you think?

Kickass Beauty The Witches Trio Swatch

Oh boy!
Here come some Glolos at ya!
Kickass Beauty has released a trio collection just in time for Halloween!
If you cant tell by my abundance of exclamations, I am loving these beauties.
Please excuse the pictures showing the nails glow in the dark. Its quite difficult for the lens to focus in the dark. But you get the idea. And trust me when I say they glow!.
Also with every purchase of her glolos, you receive a mini flash light to charge the polish. Very cool!

This is my attempt at recreating that beauty onto my nails.

Harry Potter Inspired Collection by A.T.C. Nail Polish

Above The Curve Nail Polish is soon to be releasing the Harry Potter inspired collection on September 3rd!
Featuring 9 polishes including four created by facebook fans!
Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Sirius Black, Polyjuice Potion, Wingardium Leviosa, Spectrespec and Patronus Charm.
If you would like to see more of this collection, or purchase, other than the 4 I have please visit these outlets for ATC
Lets get to the swatches!
Each swatch is 2 coats of polish without a top coat.
I very much loved each color I swatched. These are so beautiful in person. Siruis Black was my favorite. But to be honest all are quite yummy.
The brush is nice and flat. Picks up a good amount of polish and is easy to coat.
I was a little disappointed that the brush does not go all the way to the bottom of the bottle. BUT I am not sure if these bottles will be for sale. It may just be what was sent out for swatching purposes. And honestly the colors are so great that I would just grab and empty bottle and use that.
Its not a full size bottle but not a mini either.
Lets start with Wingardium Levosa
 Sirius Black
Direct Light 
 Patronus Charm
Direct Light
What do you think? I really do love this collection.
