My other little break in the spending freeze with the Wet n Wild Ice Baby polish in Give Me A Price Quote was this little baked palette in Baking a Cake. I don't have any shimmer bright pinks and I wanted one, let's be honest. The other colors in the palette interested me, especially the blue and the prospect of the swirly colors. The other two palettes - one is a coppery brown type grouping and the other is blues. I don't get a ton of use out of blues because I need to partner them with warmer colors or I look dirty/undead. And as I've proved before with my gold/brown/bronze swatch-tacular post I have a lot of browns/bronze/copper etc.
So when my Walgreens had the Baking the Cake palette, I squealed in joy (okay, it was a silent squeal, this is a very cramped and busy downtown Walgreens where I could run into coworkers :) ).
Got this home and busted it out to swatch so I could figure out what I wanted to use tomorrow. The pink is the sheerest of the bunch (blue is as well, but a little less so), I swatched these all dry - they will be same shade but more opaque/brighter/darker (depending on if it's a light or dark shade) when wet. I did dabble around with the pink shade earlier in the day while wet on my lid and it was very pretty. Since I had made such a nice arrangement of swatches, I figured I'd snap a picture and post it!
I really like the swirly shade next to the pink, it's kind of a slightly rosy bronzed something - but doesn't go orange or coppery - sort of rose gold-esque. Thinking I'll feature that on the lid tomorrow and use the brighter pink near the crease, softening with the deepest shade to avoid looking too-too bright. Fun stuff for $4.99!
