Cotton Candy Sunsets
Cotton Candy Sunsets can be described as a creme polish that is the perfect, sweet-pink hue of a summer sunset. Very girly and fun shade. I was pleasantly surprised with the tone, pink usually doesn't compliment my skin tone as well as this. Great formula, self-levels perfectly. Shown here is two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Minty-Go-Round can be described as a creme polish that is a soft, green shade reminiscent of a vintage carousel. Doesn't this one look so lush?! I had to color-correct these swatches, because I was having a tough time capturing the exact mint-green color. It's still a tad bit more green than these photos showcase. Formula was really great, not too thick or too thin. Very opaque as well. Shown here is two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Boardwalk Breeze can be described as a creme polish that is a dusky periwinkle, reminiscent of a late-night boardwalk stroll with your sweetheart. So much love for this one. Such a smooth and easy color. Formula on this one was the best from the set, super easy application. It's practically a one coater guys! I added a very minimal second coat more as a formality because that's what I am used to, but it really didn't need it. Shown here is two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Peach Salt Water Taffy
Peach Salt Water Taffy can be described as a creme polish with a nod to a favorite carnival treat; a delicate creamy orange tone. I'll be honest, I didn't think I was going to like this one when I saw it in the bottle. But it's easily my favorite from the quad set. It's a very versatile shade that you can wear from the office down to the shore and still look fantastic. The formula on this one was a little bit thinner than the rest causing minor cuticle flooding. For these swatches I did three coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Overall I am happy to have these as part of my creme collection. I am a major fan of cremes and it's hard to find light shades that are as opaque as these in a single coat. Very impressed. These can easily rival some mainstream creme polishes with ease. These polishes also marble like a dream-cake, I'll be showing you guys that over the weekend. Which one of these shades is your favorite?
