Swatch & Review: Turtle Tootsie – January Birthstone Trio


Happy New Year!!! Here we are at day 2 of 2017 and already I can promise you this week, this month, this year is gearing up to be AH-MAZING!!! I’m so excited and honored to start the year of with a swatch and review from a brand that is sorta, kinda new to the Queendom, Turtle Tootsie. Chrissy and Turtle Tootsie was one of the makers featured in Rachel’s Rainbow Box, you may remember the beautiful pink polish she created for it, if not, you can check out here

Lucky for you, you’ll be seeing a lot more turtles around here as I’ll be bringing you her monthly birthday trios. So, why don’t we start this party off right and check out January, Garnet and Capricorn.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Marvel Liquid Macro by Superchic Lacquer (shiny) and Matte Me by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**


January – This is a white crelly with red metallic flakies, matte red hex and gold shimmer


Garnet – This is a dark red/purple linear holo


Capricorn – A holo glitter topper includes red flakies, red hex and gold holo squares

 Overall Thoughts

Formula: Easy to apply and dries semi textured but that’s expected with glitters. Smooths out wonderfully with topcoat. The swatches photo don’t do Garnet any justice, the flame is much more amazing IRL!

Application: No issues. No fishing for glitters…YAY!

Opaqueness: January and Garnet are perfectly opaque in 2 coats. Capricorn builds up nicely over any base color (swatch shown over 2 coats of 79 Light Red by Kleancolor Nail Lacquer.

Price: $25 for the trio in full size, $15 in mini. Singles are $10/$6 respectively

Availability: Releasing January 1st

Overall: I throughly enjoyed this trio and I’m extremely excited for the upcoming months. I think Chrissy did a fantastic job showcasing different finishes on each polish…a little something for everyone!
