OMG! I love the overall selection of colors in this new collection!
I really like this collection. I really like the selection of colors. I think it's so perfect for this time of year, and are all shades that I am happy to have in my collection. I love the selection of warm colors, and am obsessed with the cool tones. I am not quite sure when they were realeased, but there are enough colors that are workable into Winter, Spring, and the Fall seasons. Can you tell I'm excited? I think, overall, it's a neutral pallet, definitely office/work appropriate, and can be fit into daily wear. Plus the range of colors would look great on many skin tones!
This is called West Coast Vibes, which totally reminds me of the Northwest (Seattle, Vancouver, etc), which I LOVE! I've only visited the area once, and I am dying to go again. The only thing missing is a dark green... but that's just because I know the northwest is covered in pine trees.
You can view the entire collection on INM's website, and purchase here for the unbeatable price of $3.25 each, plus shipping.
Okay, let's get into the polishes. The formula for all of them was thin and required two coats for full opacity, unless stated otherwise. It was not so thin that I had to worry about the polish dripping down the stem of the brush, but thin enough to be careful around the cuticles. STILL, the formulas were smooth and easy to apply. The second coat was good at covering the patchy or darker spots from the first coat, and overall no issues with dry time or self-leveling noted.
Sultry Lips Keep Ships
This first one is the lightest, and it is a very pale greige, like linen grey color...I love it!. Shown is two coats.
So Nude and Nancy
This next one is so perfect with my skin tone. Such a beautiful warm-toned, sandy neutral! Show is two coats.
Late Summer Bronze
This is a classic light khaki brown to me... and again, I had nothing like this in the past, so I am super happy with this color. Shown is two coats.
Brunch & Bloody's
Ok, this one is a stunner to me. I feel like this color is right on trend with the desert colors in the makeup world! So gorgeous! Shown is two coats.
Wine and Dine
We have arrived at my favorite of the collection... a rich, and deep wine color. I love this so much. Shown is 2 coats.
Autumn on the West Coast
Are y'all tired of me saying I love these polish colors? Because I can't say it enough!!!! I mean, look at this grey-ish mauve (insert heart-eyed emoji) I have a gel polish similar to this, and now I am too happy to have it in regular polish. Shown is 2 coats
Picnic at Night
Here we have a classic mid-tone grey. It's definitely a color that is a must-have, and with this price and formula, I can agree that this polish is a must-have. Shown is 2 coats.
Ok... when I first grabbed this bottle I was skeptical about the opacity of the crelly-like formula with this shimmer. I don't know... It really just felt like I'd definitely need 3 coats, but I was very pleasantly surprised of how pigmented the base was, and how the shimmer still stood out very nicely. This is a shifting shimmer, most prominently showing turquoise, but in some angles you can see the blue and violet show up. Those are not as contrasting and mostly just give the grey base of the polish just have a different look.
Blue Eyed Girl
Next we have this goregeous baby blue color. This was the only polish that needed a 3rd coat in order to be opaque, mostly to cover up dark spots. This is a vvery nice and unique color, however I am not sure how I like it on my skin tone in person.. I feel that in the photo it doesn't look quite how felt it looked in person... IDK, what do you think? Shown is 3 coats.
As Teal As You Can Get
This last one reminded me of wet cement. This is such an interesting color, that I LOVE, because of the faded succulent green tone to it. I have nothing like this so it was very nice to see this in the collection. This one had the thickest formula and I felt like it dries to a rubberized finish. I think this would look gorgeous in matte. Shown is 2 coats plus top coat.
Well, I hope y'all enjoyed these colors as much as I did! Thanks for reading
