Massive Nailpolish Haul & Swatches: ZOYA, OPI, ORLY & Deborahh Lippmann

I have this terrible problem where every time I'm sitting on my laptop I will naturally navigate to every online shopping website I like. Last week however, I was curious to see what fellow Australian beauty bloggers were selling on their blogs, and this is how I stumbled a crossed the lovely Amy's blog. IfYouSeekAmy has tonnes and tonnes of amazing products on sale so if you want to pick up a bargain please go check her blog sale out! 

I went a little crazy on nail polish and bought a whooping 25 bottles, yes I said it 25, 18 of which are Zoya polishes. When my eyes saw that she was selling them I instantly knew I had to get them. Why is it so hard to find (and expensive to buy) Zoya in Australia? Anyways, I quickly stocked up on Zoya to last a whole lifetime.

In today's post I will show you a few swatches of the polishes I purchased and a brief description of what the shade consists of. Hopefully, I will be doing heapsssssss more NOTD posts where I will give further insight to the consistency and all that other information. 

Also, all swatches below are 3 coats although most of the solid colours only needed 2 coats to reach full opacity.

These shades are quite sheer. So they would probably look better as a top coat unless you want to pile on 5 layers of product. 

OPI - Divine Swine 
(a clear jelly base with purple and silver hexagon glitter)
OPI - Getting Miss Piggy With It 
(a clear jelly base with ruby red glitter and silver hexagon glitter)
OPI - Fresh Frog Of Bel Air
