Good afternoon dears! I hope your Friday is going swimmingly and your work day is almost done. I'm holed up in the house with my kids (who didn't have school today) and just lounging in pjs and watching tv. We are so lazy. It's also a bit chilly outside so I don't even want to go outside until warmer Spring weather decided to make it's appearance. But since that will be a while I will console myself with pretty Spring polish posts. Let's start with the new Lumina Lacquer Spring/Easter 2015 Collection! Tatiana really has a way with glitter combinations that always make my heart beat a little faster. This collection captures Spring in soft and bold shades, glitters and a very pretty crelly full of micro glitter. All 4 polishes in this collection are Limited Edition and available now for $9 each! Hurry over and get your favorites before they are gone!
Let's start with Baby Bunny, a "white, opaque crelly that contains pastel colored micro glitter." This screams Easter to me. Baby Bunny reminds me of the speckled Robin's Eggs candies. Yum yum! Baby Bunny was full coverage in 2 coats. The formula was a little thick, but not difficult to work with. It dries ever so slightly textured but with a nice layer of gelous or a few layers of topcoat it's perfectly smooth and shiny.
Bee-Lieve is a fun and bright "yellow and black glitter mix with an assortment of different shapes (hearts, stars, hexs, dots, etc.) in a clear base). Hello I love this so much! I am a big ol' fan of yellow and yellow glitter polishes. I would have layered it over yellow but I wanted to really show off the different shades of yellow in Bee-Lieve so I went with a red-orange creme. The formula and application of Bee-Lieve were both fantastic. The glitter payoff was perfect. You could easily use 1 layer for a lighter glitter look, I used 2 for denser coverage. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Easter Basket is a delicate blend of pastel glitter. It's officially described as a "pastel colored micro glitter with dots and hexs in a clear base." I loved the soft look of this one. I think Easter Basket will look beautiful over any pastel base color including white and cream! The formula and application were were both great. I decided I wanted a lighter glitter payoff so I used 1 coat of Easter Basket over a softly shimmered pastel orange peach shade. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Rounding out the collection is Baby Chick. This is a "neon yellow and white mix that includes triangles, hexs, dots, stars hearts, daisies, etc." As much as I loved the pastel colors, Baby Chick is the one that stole the show! Yellow AND neon AND fun glitter shapes! So much win. The formula and application of Baby Chick were both great. I was able to get plenty of fun shapes out without much fishing required (turn the bottle upside down for a few minutes for the bigger shapes to float to the top). I did dab a few shapes on to have a consistent flow to the glitter on my nails. I layered 2 coats of Baby Chick over a shimmery pastel blue and finished with a layer of topcoat.
