Well can you believe it! Another post! Woo Hoo!! Haha I am uber excited to share with you guys my complete review of the Bitter Side of the SWL 2016 Fall Collection by Jior Couture. Sacha sent me these 6 polishes for free in return for my honest opinion. So of course that is what I shall give you! If you arent sure what a PR Sample is please read this. This collection releases September 15th and is a 12 piece set. Sacha has split the sets up into 2 parts. Bitter Side, which I have and will be reviewing, and Sweet Side, which Krystal over at QueenofNails83 has reviewed! Now I have heard some rumors that this collection MAY or MAY NOT have been inspired by Beyoncé’s Lemonade, but the jury is still out SO you can think what you want. I have no confirmation 😉 Anywho, on to the swatches!
Accountability….I think more people should….oh wait this isn’t a self-help blog. Haha. It’s about the polish! Well this one is called Accountability and it is yummy! It is an olive-green jellie and its packed with color changing flakies. It is a very beautiful pair! I’m not a fan of jellies but this applied extremely easily! I did have to do 3 thin coats to make it opaque but that’s no biggie! I mean look at it. I would do 10 coats happily! Haha It looks gorgeous with a glossy finish but….matte. Be still my heart. This is the perfect combo for fall, flakies and green olive! ( I love green olives, irl)
Anger…I have a lot of it! I absolutely love this black/grey holo creme! Oh and it has flakies too! Holo+Flakies+Creme=Happiness You just can’t go wrong with that combination. Want to know something else. It is a one coater! This is such a beautiful color and the formula is spot on..When I applied it I instantly thought galaxy nails sooooo I see that happening in my near future! I did do 2 thin coats but it was opaque in one. Formula was nice too! This polish is winning all over!
Apathy….is another holo! And it also has flakies! Apathy has a rose gold pink base. It’s a fun polish to work with. It was pretty opaque in 1 coat but I did 2. I am sure if I had done a thicker coat it would have been fine! Sacha is pretty consistent with her formulas so I had no troubles with this one either. The flakies in it are gold. I really love how the polishes change when you make them matte. I never use to like matte. But my mind has been blown with this collection and a few others. Matte is LIFE!
Denial is a mustard yellow creme. Man I love cremes! I just love how they glide so easily on your nail! #gimmeallthecremes As I said in my Instagram post I am usually not a fan of yellows but these mustard yellows are really nice and perfect for fall! Denial is a 1 coater and stamps beautifully!
Emptiness is so delicious! At first glance I thought it would be a very close match to Intuition, which I will share next. But nope! Not in the least. These are two completely different polishes. Emptiness is a deep wine red and it just ugh. I love it! It’s also a 1 coater!!!! AND it stamps!I didn’t have any issues with staining either. I did use 2 coats of Yellow Stopper as a base coat for each mani. I did get some in my cuticles while swatch and they weren’t stained at all so I was extremely pleased!
Intuition! I am not a fan of red but this red. This one right here is just so sexy! I call it my panty dropper..lmfao Intuition is a bright red creme that stamps and is opaque in 1 coat. Do I have to tell you guys that I did 2..haha I think by now you have gotten that right? Now before I make this post look all silly, I will be posting later an update. I only have 3 of this one to post. I may have run out of matte top coat -_- Sooo yea. I realized after I took the polish off I didn’t take a matte macro! And well I didn’t have anymore SO I will take one later tonight! Its beautiful either way, matte or glossy. Its my favorite of all 6. But the others are loved almost as much!.
So there you have it. Overall I love this Bitter Side of SWL and I am dying to get the Sweet Side! There are some beauitiful colors there too! But back to these 6 polishes. I was able to stamp with ALL of them! That’s a big bonus for me! I didn’t get to try much at watermarble so I don’t have an answer for that but I believe I did see someone else watermarble with them. So I am assuming some of them if not all of them do. I love that Sacha communicates with her swatchers/bloggers in a timely manner and oh man is she a sweet heart! As I said before these polishes release with the other 6 (Sweet Side) on September 15th! They will be sold as a 12 piece set, 6 piece set (Bitter or Sweet) and individually. So may options!
