Jindie's Spring Chic collection is packed with neon crellies and glitter surprises! I was grinning ear to ear as I unwrapped each bottle to see what she had sent to me. Each one of them, gorgeous!
I strive to get my photos color accurate, but neons, especially peachy/coral ones prove to be challenging so I have noted where there are color differences from my photo and the polish.
I'll be using Jindie's descriptions - she sent them to me in a file to help make the big entry easier. I really appreciate that she did that!
Ok, are you ready for some sparkle?!
Nude Beach is such a fun cheery polish! I wore three easy coats in these photos. While i was painting, I giggled because the name brought forth imagery of what a nude beach might look like on a warm summer day. I've not been to one, but now my nails have! And I don't know how she did it but the white stars definitely show through the crelly base - genius!
Nude Beach: Nude crelly base with a mix of metallic sand colored sparkling hex, iridescent hex, matte white hex & tiny stars plus and abundance of neon orange, neon blue, neon pink, neon purple, neon green & neon yellow hex in several sizes.
Fun Intended is a really bright neon pink. My camera shot it too blue and I couldn't get the color accurate in photoshop, so I googled for an image with the color in it, but there were none to be found. Its a true neon pink, similar to the sinful colors Fusion Neon in person, since digital images of it are not accurate either.
I wore two coats here, and alternated painting with a dab here and there to move some of the glitters around. I added a coat of Gelous and Seche Vite so it'd be smooth and glossy.
Fun Intended is a bright pastel neon pink crelly with a mix of neon pink, neon orange, metallic silver, metallic orange, metallic magenta & tiny white stars, hex, short bars & dots plus neon pink butterflies. Opaque in 2-3 coats & meant to be worn on its own.
Mango with the Flow is another beautiful pastel neon, but in peach. The photos here are the right shade of peach but they're not quite as vivid/bright as the polish is on the nail. Its jam packed full of glitter and those iridescent hexes were exciting to me as they revealed themselves on the nail! I didn't read the descriptions before I polished with any of these, so each one was a surprise!
Mango with the Flow: Pastel peach crelly (cream/jelly) with metallic silver hex, blue & purple iridescent hex, lime green/gold iridescent hex. Opaque in 2-3 coats. Meant to be worn alone.
Princess Consuela Bananahammock made me giggle when I saw the name and I think the polish is a good match for it! The contrast of the bright pink and orange glitter in the yellow crelly base really draws the eye! I wore one coat over a white cream polish to really bring out the neon yellow. Very easy to apply except for my giggling at the name every few brush strokes!
Princess Consuela Bananahammock is named after the Friends episode where Phoebe changed her name to this hysterical name. PCBH is a bright neon yellow crelly with a mix of matte satin red, orange, neon pink, neon orange, neon dark orange hex plus matte red tiny red stars.
The last two polishes I'm sharing with you are my favorites of this collection: HipStar cause its purple (and you all know how I love purple!) and Fantastical because I love the combination of colors she chose for it!
I wore two to three coats of HipStar and did a brush dab method where needed. Such a pleasing combination of glitter and color, I didn't want to take this one off!
HipStar: Periwinkle crelly with a mix of neon pink, neon purple, metallic silver hex, stars & dots. Opaque in 2-3 coats, meant to be worn on its own.
HUGE turquoise holo dots!?! Yes please! Fantastical is simply stunning in the bottle and on the nail. Its packed full of shimmer and sparkle and I love the contrast between the turquoise and coral. I was thrilled that she sent a full sized bottle of this one to me (minis in the other colors). I found it challenging to use the minis because of the bottle shape; the threads around the neck seemed to keep the brush from dipping in very far once the cap was off. So I held them tipped over at a diagonal and let the polish run to the brush. The full sized bottle was perfectly easy to use though; I'd suggest getting full size if you plan to purchase these.
Fantastical: Bright, pastel coral crelly (cream/jelly) with a mix of satin matte aqua hex and regular sized stars, metallic and holographic teal smaller sized stars, squares, hex and large dots, turquoise, green/gold iridescent hex, plus beautiful color shifting teal shimmer. Opaque in 2-3 coats. Meant to be worn on its own.
All of these polishes went on easily, no fussing with streaks or digging around for glitter. All that glitter you see on my nails in the photos is what came out of the bottle with a dip of the brush each time I needed more paint. The crelly formula layers up opaque very nicely and doesn't require undies unless you want to use them.
Get your hands on these during Jindie's next restock tomorrow! (Sunday May 19)
