Bitch by Jaclyn: April Showers Collection
The April Showers collection from B.i.t.c.h. by Jaclyn is launching Tuesday! I think she has captured the shades of April really well! These blues, greys, and purples are so pretty together.
Let's start with the namesake of the collection, April Showers. Which is a light blue crelly glitter polish. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Cuddle Puddle is a blue holographic polish. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Drip Drop is a silvery blue frost with subtle holo sparkle. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Go Away is a grape colored holo. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Gutter Bitch is a charcoal holo. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Just Foolin' Around is a pastel orchid holo. The holo is a little stronger in full sun, it's just difficult to capture under studio lighting. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Make It Rain is a pretty teal leaning blue holo. I wore two coats with topcoat.
Jaclyn is also launching a new quick dry topcoat called Lubed & Ready. I've been able to test it out and it dries fairly quick, is super glossy and hardens well. Each time I tried it though, the polish underneath's solvents were still trying to evaporate under the already dry topcoat which caused bubbling. I even tried letting the polish dry for a while before using the topcoat but had the same result. It seems that while the top coat dries quick, it doesn't also dry the layers underneath. I will most likely use Lubed & Ready as a re-glosser through the week to keep my manis super shiny.
I enjoyed wearing this collection, and I would say my two favorites are Go Away (because PURPLE!) and Make It Rain because it's an unusual shade of blue, not quite teal, but definitely teal leaning.
The April Showers collection launches on April 7, 8pm Central at http://www.bitchbyjaclyn.com/
