If you prefer to see 'hand swatches', Grape Fizz Nails has perfect swatches! (I'm so jealous of her painting skills)

My top picks are I Manicure For Beads, Let Me Bayou a Drink, Crawfishin' for a Compliment and Show Us Your Tips! ♥

I Manicure For Beads is a purple with a creme finish. Excellent color payoff, the first coat is a bit sheer but it's fully opaque with 2 coats. By the way, the color is similar to MAC Heroine lipstick!!

Spare Me a French Quarter? is a raspberry red with a creme finish. It goes on smoothly and the color payoff is incredible, it's almost a one coater!

She's a Bad Muffuletta! is a coral red with a creme finish. This is another great color, the first coat was almost fully opaque! 5 Apples Tall (Hello Kitty Collection) is slightly darker, less coral.

Suzi Nails New Orleans is a bubble gum pink with a creme finish. Hmm, everyone seems to love this one but on me the formula wasn't easy to apply. It was a bit streaky and thick.

Got Myself into a Jam-balaya is a corally peach with a creme finish. This shade is a bit sheer and streaky with 2 coats, but 3 thin coats did the trick!

Crawfishin' for a Compliment is a light orange with a creme finish. The formula is similar to Got Myself into a Jam-balaya, it's a bit sheer and streaky with 2 coats so it looks best with 3 thin coats. I love the color though!

Show Us Your Tips! is a lavender blue with a sparkly finish. This one is sheer so you will need 3-4 coats if you don't want any visible nail line. The color is beautiful though, well worth the effort!

Rich Girls & Po-Boys is a medium blue with a creme finish. Another easy formula, it was fully opaque with 2 coats!

I'm Sooo Swamped! is a grass green with a creme finish. Not my favorite color, but great formula! It was opaque with 2 coats.

Take a Right on Bourbon is a warm silver with a metallic finish. I'm not a fan of metallic nail lacquers and this one is no exception, too streaky for me!

Humidi-Tea is a peachy nude pink with a speckled/shimmery finish. The formula is a bit sheer but not streaky, still a bit of visible nail line with 2 coats though.

Let Me Bayou a Drink is a light pinky white with a slightly pearly finish. The first coat was very patchy, but the second coat was smooth and almost fully opaque. It looks great with 3 thin coats, and it was surprisingly smooth and even for such a light pinky white. This is one of my favorites of the collection!

  1. I almost want to buy these just for the hilarious names! I love Take A Right on Bourbon! I have no idea how the 'I'm so Swamped' would be worn haha.
