Swatches of my 600 FB Followers Giveaway Bloop and Elianto nail polishes

Like any of these nail polishes and want a chance to win them? You're in luck. These are part of the prizes for my 600 FB Followers Giveaway, which if you haven't joined, you should join now because there's less than a week left until it ends! I have great prizes to give to one lucky winner - they include 5 nail polishes (I've swatched them in this post) and 2 nail art accessory wheels, shown below.

Swatches and a short review of the polishes I'm using in this giveaway after the jump!

First up we have Bloop H525, a very unique champagne polish with green/grey slight duochrome, pink/orange iridescence and gold microglitter. It's a very classy polish with a touch of mystery and a ton of glamour. I also like that it's rather "neutral" and work-appropriate. Great for all you office ladies!

Bloop H525 goes on sheer and slightly streaky but builds up nicely with 3 coats. This is the most brush-strokey of all the polishes, so you have to be more careful when applying it. I don't think I have anything like it, so it has become a firm favourite of mine.

Next up, Elianto Racing Green (pictured below, on the right).

This fantastic polish is the favourite of many a polish lover out there. It's emerald green and chock full of small gold and green glitter and flakes that come in various sizes, giving it depth. Another thing I love about it is that it's darker at the edges but shiny in the centre, giving it that lovely lit from within effect. The formula is great too - two coats needed to reach full opacity and it's not top coat hungry in the least. All green lovers must have this fantastic shade!

Finally, we have the Bloop minis that many of you were very excited about! These jewel-toned beauties are glitterific and very unique. From L-R we have: H198, H202, H201. I own the full-sized versions of these.

Swatches of Bloop H198, H201 and H202 under artificial light, from L-R:

Check out the awesome glitter on Bloop H198 (or Christmas Came Early, as I like to call it). It really reminds me of China Glaze Emerald Sparkle, except H198 has tiny red microglitter which looks awesome in the bottle but sadly doesn't translate well onto the nail. It's not top coat hungry, and I used 2 coats of it with 1 coat of Seche Vite on top.

Bloop H201 is a vampy purple with microglitter that mostly sparkles pink, red, blue and purple in the light. It's very mysterious and sophisticated, even if the glitter is very shy. Do note that this one is a little top coat hungry and required 2 coats of SV to tame the glitter.

Bloop H202 is a cheerful red glitter that reminds me of China Glaze Ruby Pumps but has a unique twist with medium-sized baby blue glitter scattered throughout. It's very pretty both in the bottle (full-sized bottle shot in this post) and on the nail. It's a tad sheer though, so for full coverage I'd recommend 3-4 coats. Alternatively, you could layer it on top of another polish - the combinations are endless!

More swatches of H525, H202, H201 and H198 under natural light:

The glitter in Bloop H202 (red) and Bloop H201 (purple) was insanely hard to capture, but I can assure you that they look really pretty in real life!
