Heather's Hues Caribbean Getaway Collection

Hi guys, how's it going? Hope all is well, it's such a beautiful day outside. Wish I could just be sitting on the grass taking in the sun. Just kidding. I like the summer but hate the heat, haha. Instead I'd like to stay indoors and on the computer all day with the AC roaring. Yup, the truth comes out. I'm a little polishing hermit. But at least my nails get to go on tropical adventures with this fantastic collections being released. Today I bring you the Caribbean Getaway Collection by Heather's Hues! It's a six-piece collection that consists of jellies and glitter toppers perfect for the summer fun.

Heather's Hues Caribbean Getaway Collection

Let's take a closer look my nail lovers!

Island in the Sun is a beautiful nude shade with a golden shimmer and taupe microflakes. Time for some fun in the sand with this beauty. I have always said I don't own nearly enough nude polishes as I probably should so this one makes a nice addition. I love the slight touch of golden sparkles, makes it feel like a very elegant shade. Swatched over a clear base, used three thin coats, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. You'll find this to be sheer in a single layer, but after three coats I achieved a good opaque look. Make sure to add a topcoat to smooth out the shimmer and brush strokes.

Tropical Waters is a royal blue jelly polish filled with teal, purple, and blue microflakes. It is also laced with beautiful silver holo micro glitters. Love cannot fully capture my feelings about this azure beauty. It looks like the freaking shimmering ocean on my nails!  Swatched over a clear base, used two thin coats, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. Tropical Waters is incredibly opaque for a jelly and only needed two coats for fully opacity. Great formula and smooth application.

Paradise Pink is a hot fuchsia jelly polish with gold and red microflakes. Hot tamale! This polish just looks like it's so full of sass with it's bright shade and sparkles. It's a great color to put on to impress and be the center of attention, ladies! Swatched over a clear base, used three coats, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. Great formula and consistency. I'm happy to say it did not leave any staining despite it's heavy color pigmentation. I used three layers to achieve the desired amount of opacity. Definitely suggest using a topcoat to seal in the jelly goodness.

Sunset Over the Sea is a glitter bomb filled with royal blue and navy blue holo glitters in various sized hexes. There's also a sprinkling of fuchsia, orange, and lavender hex glitters to give you the feel of a sunset over the ocean. I love the thought process behind the glitter combination, really cute. It's hard to pick a favorite in this collection but I'm pretty sure this one is it for me. I love myself a crazy glitter bomb and this one is fantastic. Swatched over a clear base, used two coats with the dabbing method, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. I love how it looks without an undie but it would look equally as amazing if you decide to use one. I did find the base to have a bit of blue tint so it's not a completely clear topper. As always, make sure you use a topcoat to seal in this jelly sandwich.

Frozen Drinks is another glitter bomb filled with bar glitters as well as large and small hexes in peach, pink, lime green, and neon yellow. This such a crazy glitter explosion! As much as I like it without a base color, I think you guys should definitely use an undie to showcase the glitters better. Swatched over a clear base on my index and pinky, used two coats with the dabbing method, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. I used NYC Copabanana Nail Polish as a base for my middle two nails. I think yellow works as a nice base for this glitter bomb. Great formula and it gave me no trouble with the application. You have to use the dabbing method to apply but it's not an issue and applies pretty smoothly. No glitter fishing! It's actually quite awesome because I was fearful that from a mini bottle I'd have to fish but found myself pleasantly surprised.

Crashing Waves is a clear glitter topper filled with lime and teal various sized hexes as well as white bar glitters and teal micro bar glitters. Another one of my favorite polishes in this collection. Finally a bar glitter polish done right. I used NYC Color's Amazon Green as a base and I think it suits it perfectly! Swatched over a clear base, used two coats with the dabbing method, and sealed with a fast drying topcoat. Formula was great and same consistency as the others in this set. Like the other glitter bombs, you have to use the dabbing method. Because there is no glitter fishing, you'll find that you only need to 'dab' on two layers and you have quite the glitter explosion on your nail.

Overall this is a fantastic collection for the summer! It has everything you're going to want for your nails during all your adventures under the sun. Summer is all about fun, craziness, and colorfulness. The Caribbean Getaway by Heather's Hues showcases all these aspects while bringing you some interesting shades. Personally I think the glitters are definitely the highlight of the collection as they are different than a lot of the others I have reviewed this summer. I cannot express how impressed I was with the formula consistency. Nice smooth applications throughout this collection, so you cannot go wrong with whichever one you end up choosing.

Some of these polishes are also part of the Perfect Polish Packs available in Heather's store. These packs come in a variety of pricing choices. The basic polish pack includes one full size polish of your choice (4 choices available) and 4 different sets of vinyls from Nails Redesigned for $19.00. I'll be doing a review on these vinyls tomorrow, so stay tuned!
