Here are ze swatches I did tonight. Femputer wanted greens and reds and Amy wanted to see Meow's Spirits collection, but I only have the one so I swatched that badboy. When I saw the holiday collections, the Spirits one just didn't appeal to me. Too many dark neutrals it seemed. But this year Meow re-vamped the swatch chart and I think I may give it a second chance.
I love this lil combo on my hand! I needed some cheer because I just came from the insane mall and I gotta tell ya, I do NOT feel festive. Just damn annoyed that I couldn't eat dinner there, too packed, and then had to walk home and didn't have a toque or gloves on me, just my scarf. Way to win at winter, me.
So here are my pretties. All are Meow Cosmetics minus 1 Aromaleigh shade. Most are Christmas collections minus the 2 Egyptian Treasures and the 1 Shattered Equinox (and the AL one of course)
Also keep in mind these were from the holiday 2009 version. Just in case there are any slight differences. One of my halloween shades was slightly different from the year before, that's the only reason I mention this.
Top row: Hot Toddy, AL Nasturtium, Jingle
2nd row: Tutankhamun, Elf, Jangle
3rd row: Grinch, Miw, Deranged
Hot Toddy didn't look red to me at all but when I swatched the reds, it kinda picked it up somehow. Looking at it now, it would look pretty sweet for a lid shade with Tutankhamun or Jingle in the crease.
Nasturtium is a nice, bright red. I grabbed a 2nd jar to give to my mom for Christmas. Yes, my mom would rock red.
Jingle is a deep wine red. The site doesn't mention this, but it has some green sparkles in it! Green and silver sparkles. That's what made me grab it so fast last year. I love the contrast.
Tutankhamun. Yay!! I finally learned how to spell it! Tu-TANK-Hamun like human but backwards! Go me! A wicked metallic blackend red.
Elf, a kick ass dark forest green with pink sparkles. It looks awesome in the jar. So sparkly!
Jangle, I'll admit, I only bought this so it could go with Jingle. JINGLE JANGLE!! Super shimmery green.
Grinch is a lovely medium acid green with a golden sheen to it and some silver sparkles.
Miw is also from the Egyptian Treasures. No sparkles, pure metal goodness.
Deranged is one of my newbies from Shattered Equinox. A deep forest green with some fine golden sparkle to it.
