Today I have my first ever full collection swatch post. Well... Almost the whole collection. Sadly, one of the bottles suffered a tragic accident and left broken glass and orange polish splashed all over my bedroom floor. Tragic. And a huge pain in the arse to deal with. *sigh*
This collection is the limited edition Wet-N-Wild Spring Bloom Collection. Six pretty pastels just right for the season. I received this collection as a prize in a recent giveaway held by Nouveau Cheap. The missing polish is a soft, light orange. I can't remember the name of the polish. I can remember how much fun it was to clean out of my broadloom... :P
I swatched all of these polishes over Orly Ridge Filling Base Coat to give them a halfway decent chance to get amooth over my terribly ridged nails. I didn't apply any topcoat. These polishes were lovely and shiny without it. Tho I would definitely wear topcoat, if using these for a full manicure.
Cherry Blossom, Laughing Lilac, Bird Bath, Garden Hose, Collecting Pollen.
Soft, sugar almond pink. Great. Now I am craving sugar almonds...
I lack descriptive powers for this shade. It is a pretty, true lilac.
Delicate, robin's egg blue.
Faded, whitish green. Like a rubber hose left out too long in the sun.
Collecting Pollen. Ah... Ah... Ahchoo!
Bright, sunny yellow. It is like Spring sunshine splashed all over my nails.
The formula of this polish is jelly, silky and translucent and squishy. It is a bit sheer and slightly streaky. I needed three full coats to get a uniform, even finish. Part of that was due to the awful brushes in these bottles. They were not trimmed well and they definitely contributed to the streaking and difficulty getting the polish on nice and smooth. I like all of these colours. They are nothing different or groundbreaking but they are very nice shades. I would have happily paid the retail for these polishes. Tho I would have been a little bummed about the brushes.
These polishes should be available in drugstores, soon if they haven't already hit the shelves. I haven't seen them here, but since it is nearly impossible to find LE anything in this podunk town, I can't say for certain.
What do you think of these polishes? Pretty? Boring? Will you take them? Leave them?
Okay, so there you have it. My first ever collection swatch post. I kinda liked doing it. If only I had the budget to buy more collections. I would happily do more. :D
Thank you all so much for popping in, have a great evening and may your polish never bubble.
