Hello everyone! Today I have for you some swatches for Bonita Colors Pair It Up Collection. Their collection consists of three crellies and three glitter toppers. Today I have for you two of their crellies and two of their glitter toppers!
First, we have Santa Kissed My Mom, which is a bright red crelly polish. I just have to say, WOW! I was very impressed with this formula, the brush, and the color. Application was so smooth, and the pigment in the polish did not stain my cuticles like other red polishes do. Although, this is my first red crelly, so that may be the difference, in that I've only used red cremes previously. With how inexpensive these polishes are, if you don't have a red that you love, it's definitely one you should try!
Application was breezy, with full opacity in 2 coats. No top coat shown, as this dries glossy (and when they do I like to share that because it's something I love about polishes. Still, when I do a mani, I apply top coat for lasting gloss, and protection). Dry time was very quick. No issues noted with the polish.
Next up I have I Flippin' Love It, a red glitter topper in small and medium hexagons. Shown is one coat over Santa Kissed My Mom plus top coat. This is a metallic-like red glitter that gives off red sparkle. It's a very simple glitter, and I can see myself using it personally on top of red to add more dimension and just a hint of sparkle.
Next up I have Hostess With The Mostess, a peachy nude crelly. This polish is very elegant, and I love how it looks against my skin tone. I am wearing two coats here, but I actually really loved how even just one coat looked, even though it was sheer, because it was so squishy :).
Shown is two coats with no top coat. Again, application was breezy with very quick dry time. No issues noted with the polish.
Lastly, I have I Could Care Less, a multi-shape and size glitter topper. I really love this! I thought It was just a gold glitter topper at first glance, but as I took a closer look, I really liked the combination of glitters in this. It has gold small and medium hexagons, silver medium hexagons, and pink holographic bars, which really bring up the color in this.
Shown is one coat over Hostess With The Mostess plus top coat.
