*polishes in this post were provided for unbiased review*
Hiiiiii guys! I am so incredibly late with this post, the collection already launched! Whoops. I fiiiinally had a chance to sit down and swatch the collection so, without further ado, here we go!
Up first is the non-collection polish, When the Cherry Met the Spoon. It is a berry red with sparse holographic pigment, ultra chrome flakes, and charcoal flake shimmer. It is super gorgeous! I had no issues with the application on this one(or any of the polishes in this post), and it took 2 coats for it to be opaque. The photos below show 2 coats + top coat.
NYC is a black matte/rubber finished creme with a slight silver micro shimmer. This is suuuch a fantastic black! I love the shimmer in it, it isn’t super in your face but it’s just enough to set it apart from my plethora of other black cremes. The photos below show 2 coats + top coat.
East London is a flakie topper blend of the ultra chrome flake shimmer bits and holographic pigment in a clear base. I really liked how this one popped when I used it over NYC. Photos below show 1 coat East London over NYC + top coat.
Paris is a deep purple/plum medium density holo. A great darker color, and a nice change from the overload of neon things I’ve had lately! Don’t get me wrong, I will love neon everything until the day I die, but I also enjoy a good vampy color in the summer, all the bright sunlight really gives it a chance to shine! You could possibly get away with just 1 coat of this one if you do a thicker coat, but I went with 2 thin coats. Photos below show 2 thin coats + top coat.
Melbourne was one of my favorites of this collection, it’s a medium blue with gold, green, blue, silver micro shimmer, and a slight holographic finish. It really looks spectacular in the sunlight! The photos below show 2 coats + top coat.
The last polish in the collection is LA, a white crelly/jelly with a soft silver pearl shimmer. Like most white polishes, this one takes a bit more of a careful application, but is by no means a difficult polish to work with! I actually found it much easier to use than my typical go to American Apparel white polish. It took 3 fairly thick coats of polish for this one to be opaque for me. Depending on your application, you might be able to get away with 3 coats or you might need 4. The photos below show 3 thick-ish coats + top coat. This one is also fantastic for a nail art base(yes, I actually did some nail art again! what is this craziness! I’ll post it later I promiseeeeee)
