I love this collection!
So much for an introduction. Okay so for starters, the majority of this collection falls under the warm side of the color wheel. So you have a lot of pink, red, and peach, with a bit of the cooler colors. When I received this collection I was less than excited... much, much less. I don't wear a lot of pink. And I am picky about pink or warm toned polishes in general, but once I swatched those creams.... <3 <3 <3
All the cream polishes applied super smooth, super easy, dried really fast, leveled really well, dried shiny - no dragging, no bubbling, no issues!
It makes a huge difference, in my opinion, when a polish takes zero effort. And even though they were thinner than most creams, it was easy to control where you lay the polish. This is the kind of cream polishes you can apply and skip top coating if you're in a hurry and want something on super fast that will dry as you go out the door... I mean, if you're in that kind of a hurry.
So I'll speak of the cream formulas altogether. Only Esty was a true one coater for me, however, the rest were almost there. The second coat mostly covered any small patches. Depending on your application, you may just need one coat. Even though most of the colors are common, this would be a great collection to have, in my opinion, because of the fantastic formula. Meaning... yea, you should get these, or add to your wish list for sure!
Enjoy the photos, and hopefully you've already seen the YouTube video above on how they apply.

An olive green cream. This one was the thinnest formula, but still wonderfully and fully opaque in two coats. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
And now we come into the shimmers. Again, great colors, great formula, so I think they're great to get if you love shimmers and are looking to add a little jazz to your mani.
A moss green cream with gold shimmer that at very sharp angles in lower lighting, shifts to green. Gorgeous and unique color! Shown is two coats plus top coat.
