Rococo Nail Apparel Swatches Part 1

March 12, 2010

I’ve been meaning to swatch my Rococo Nail Polishes but usually feel you can get a better idea of the color on a full mani or pedi. I realized it would take me forever to get a manicure of every single Rococo nail polish I have. I have been meaning to do my RBLs but still haven’t been able to get through many due to a few other distractions along the way from MAC Abalone Shell, Lancome Pop Petrol and Chanel Rose Paradise. So I’ve decided to swatch each shade on each finger.

You can see my Rococo Nail Apparel line up here at this post Rococo Nail Apparel from Space.NK.apothecary and a full manicure of Reissue here. Rococo Nail Apparel can be purchased in the US at various SpaceNK locations. I got mine from the NY store and Bloomingdales SpaceNK. Each color retails for $16.50.

I highly recommend these other amazing resources I’ve found for additional swatches, reviews, photos (these are the ones I know of):

Swatches Part 1 (two coats each, no top coat)
No Shrinking Violet, Tokyo Nites, Organza, R2T2, Andromeda

  • No Shrinking Violet – vibrant rich shimmery purple
  • Tokyo Nites – pretty fuschia red iridescent
  • Organza – pretty nude with pink iridescence
  • R2T2 – note in my previous photo, I thought it was called Molten Lava, someone kindly corrected me, the shade is actually R2T2, the formula is Molten Lava, this has a non-glossy foiled finish
  • Andromeda – complex black/grey base with holographic sparkles

In natural sunlight:









The formulas are excellent and easy to apply and last a decent amount of time without chipping or peeling. The price is decent in my opinion for the size of the product. Check out my previous Rococo posts for additional info/reviews.

I’m in desperate need of a real mani ASAP, so I’ll probably be swatching the second round of Rococo’s in a week or so.

    Wow those colors are so pretty, especially andromeda and r2t2. I've never seen this brand before so I guess I'll be ordering online. Thanks for the lovely swatches as always!

    Ooooh I want R2D2 and Andromeda PLEEEEEZE!!!!

    Lexi – for some reason, I always thought it was "R2D2" too. Perhaps I'm just slightly retarded. I always thought Milhouse on The Simpsons was Nilhouse.

    Prettyaspeaches, you're welcome!

    Andromeda is gorgeous, I need to have a look for that one, and No Shrinking Violet is calling to me too. I'm really enjoying this line.

    Andromeda is being discontinued – snap them up from space nk before they are gone!

  • Marina March 12, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Andromeda looks exactly like OPI My Private Jet. Actually , all of those are dupes for OPIs…

  • lexi920 March 12, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    hahhaha – I'm dying over Nilhouse!

  • Catherine March 12, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Oh man… Andromeda and No Shrinking Violet are absolutely freaking gorgeous!

  • Mocha Mish Mash March 12, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    ANDROMEDA!!! I want. I need.

    I really like the looks of Tokyo Nites. Is there a dupe for it in another brand that comes to mind? Thanks 🙂

  • Sabrina March 12, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Hi girls!

    I'm not sure if there are dupes of these colors in other brands. In my stash I don't have any dupes.

    Andromeda looks so similar to the Versace Heat Nail polish! Looks gorgeous!

  • milkyway from mua March 13, 2010 at 5:06 am

    Organza looks really nice! MPJ holo looks like a dead on dupe for Andromeda.

  • SB (New York City Pretty) March 13, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Great shots! I have R2D2 and have come close to buying Andromeda a hundred times. There wear very well and the colors are so unique!

  • Mona March 17, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    These colors are amazing, and so is the way you have your nails shaped.

    How well do you find the square bottle and square top work, for doing your polish with these?
