Sally Beauty Haul and Swatches!

So today I went to Sally Beauty with some of my friends and I ended up buying 6 polishes.  We had a pretty awesome coupon and all of the polishes at Sally's were buy 2 get 1 free, so it didn't do to much damage to my bank account! Two of the polishes that I bought are going to be for my 500 Facebook fan giveaway, and I want them to be a surprise so I did not include them in the haul pictures.

The four polishes that I bought for my self are China Glaze Peachy Keen, China Glaze Sea Spray, China Glaze Fast Track, and China Glaze Celtic Sun.  Below are swatches of them all:

China Glaze Peachy Keen is an orange peach color creme polish.  It has a great formula just like the rest of the China Glaze polishes and was very opaque after two coats.  One thing I noticed different was that it looked  more pink-orange on my nails, in this picture it looks sort of yellow-orange.  Regardless it is a beautiful color and I can't wait to use it in some nail art.

China Glaze Sea Spray is a light gray blue color that I at first glance thought was a creme, but when I looked at it closely it has a slight satin finish, which is really nice.  It was completely opaque after two coats and the formula was nice and smooth.  The color reminds me of a misty beach sky.  I have so many ideas of nail art designs to do with this. I cannot wait to try them out!

Next up is China Glaze Fast Track from the Hunger Games Collection.  It is a light brown almost coffee with milk color with medium sized gold shimmers in it.  It was another two coater! This polish is subtle but it catches the light nicely.  It has a really nice shine to it and I was so happy that I was finally able to get my hands on it.

And last but not least China Glaze Celtic Sun which is a neon yellow color.  It is pretty much the same color as a yellow highlighter.  Neon's are always really hard to get good opacity on so what I usually do put a coat of white polish below them to help them look as bright as they should.  In the pictures above the coat number on the pictures are for the nails that do not have white on them.  The white pinkie nail has two coats over the white in the final picture and as you can see it looks much brighter than the nails that have three coats of polish on them.  This is such an awesome neon color and I am currently using in a water marble!

What do you guys think of these colors?  Do you have any guesses as to what my 500 fan giveaway polishes are?  Leave a comment here, on Facebook, or tweet me @Polish_Paradise.
