HELLO FELLOW FOLLWERS!!
Well, spring finally seems to be in the air!! I am so glad - spring and fall are my favorite seasons of the year. Not too hot and not too col. But, just right (why do I suddenly feel like Goldilocks?)!
The "Up and Away Collection" is a combination of every pastel color you could ever think of. I thought I'd showcase it over the next few days in its entirety to highlight the beauty of them.
I had no problems with any of the applications. Some where a little thicker than others, but a few drops of thinner cleared it right up.
Unless otherwise indicated all swatches are basecoat, Orly White Out, 2-3 coats of NP and top coat. A white base is the trick to making your pastels POP and not look so pale!! :-)
On with the show!!
First up for review is Grape Pop - she is a beauty!!
This was taken in the middle of the day and I thought it was just gorgeous! I never was much into purples before the nailboard - that place has really changed my life AND my wallet!! *hangs head* This color required no white base and was three coats. (I'm a three coater for most polishes)
This is Light as Air (as if you couldn't read that already!) Application for this was smooth as butter.
This also surprised me when it came to the color. I was really impressed by how well it looked. It's not as dark as OPI's Done out in Deco. I know some of you were wondering that, so I did a comp just to show you:
(Bear with me as I'm still learning to deal with my Paint Shop)
DoiD is Done Out in Deco and LaA is Light as Air. They are different by quite a few shades.
Here is another color I never thought I would enjoy -
Me - in a yellow?? I never thought i could pull it off, but I did and I think it looks pretty good!!
This one was a lot of fun wearing - I just kept laughing at myself not believing I was wearing something so bright - but I like it!!
Well, that's it for me today - I'll see you again tomorrow for four more fun shades from China Glaze's Up and Away Collection!
Until then - Happy Polishing!!
