Serum No. 5 Swatches/Review

Good morning! Today I have a whole bunch of Serum No. 5 swatches for your viewing pleasure. You can view and purchase these polishes on Etsy.

Happy Special Day is a glitter top coat consisting of mostly white glitter with multi colored shapes mixed in. One coat over OPI Suzi's Hungary Again.

Girl's BFF is a shimmery silver top coat with holographic glitters. This is two coats over OPI My Vampire is Buff.

Fallen is a gorgeous shimmery red with red and gold glitter. Two coats over Nicole by OPI Please Red-cycle.

Pretty Blue is a mix of blue and purple glitter suspended in a shimmery base. Two coats over Nicole by OPI Plum to Your Senses.

Thanks for the Memories is a predominately black and white glitter with some holographic glitter thrown in for good measure. This is two coats over China Glaze Life is Rosy and unfortunately, the glitter was a little hard to get out of the bottle on this one.

Call It a 'Treuse is a really unique shade of green shimmer with purple glitter. I layered two coats over China Glaze Budding Romance and it actually made me like Budding Romance!

Stormy Weather is silvery glitter base with silver bar glitter and purple and blue glitter mixed in. This is one coat over China Glaze Fancy Pants.

Rise and Grind has a coppery tinted base with tiny copper shimmer and hex glitter and smaller white hex glitter. This is one coat over OPI You're Such a Buda-pest.

Starry Nights has a blue tinted base with silver, gold, and blue glitter and silver star glitter. Unfortunately, the star glitter was super hard to get out of the bottle and I couldn't fish any out. This is two coats over China Glaze Sunday Funday.

Forest Lights has a soft green shimmer base with green and white glitter. This is two coats over OPI Can't Find My Czechbook.

Do you spy any must-haves here? Serum No. 5 has a great variety of shades!

  1. Beautiful polishes!
    Pretty Blue is my favorite ;)

  2. This isn't really a post where it stood out particularly (not trying to be rude, I swear, this is actually my fave nail blog!), but I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your glitter combinations. You always pick great backdrops that tend to be different from the glitter's family of colors and just set your swatches apart from others.

  3. Budding romance and call it a truese is perfect!

  4. the green combo is awsome! I loove Budding Romance and it looks perfect with the top!
