Good afternoon readers! I have this amazing collection of Springy, pastel crellies from Sweet Heart Polish to share with you. This is the Sweet Bites Collection and I am completely in love - with the shades and the finish. The inspiration and names are so sweet they make me crave desserts. The Sweet Bites Collection will be available for purchase on Sunday 2/15 at 9am PST. You can pick up full size individual bottles for $9 and the complete set in mini sized bottles for $30. And now that you know all those important details let's jump in and look at these Spring colored nail treats!
Pineapple Whip, a soft pastel yellow crelly. It is a beautiful and wearable shade of yellow. Pineapple Whip had a fabulous formula and applied so nicely. The first coat was a little sheer but as you can see form the pictures it builds up very well. I used 3 coats of Pineapple Whip and only had very slight visible nail line. It dries to a glossy finish, no topcoat used.
Peach Cobbler is a cream pastel peach/orange crelly. It's got a very fresh and delicate feel to it. The formula and application were both really great - easy to apply and work with. Nice coverage. Peach Cobbler had full coverage in 3 coats. Again, this had a very glossy finish that didn't require topcoat.
Here I've compared Peach Cobbler to Te Amo just to show the difference in color. Te Amo is definitely pink while Peach Cobbler is more of an orange-peach. I used 3 coats of each and no topcoat.
Huckleberry Cheesecake (gosh that sounds so good I want a slice) is a pretty pastel purple crelly. Absolutely no formula or application issues to report here. Just nice, glossy smooth polish that dries to a high shine. I used 3 coats of Huckleberry Cheesecake and no topcoat.
Pillow Mints is a very light pastel blue crelly. This shade definitely gives off that refreshing, minty feel. Just like the other in this collection, the formula and application were stellar. I had no problems at all. I used 3 coats of Pillow Mints and no topcoat as it dried to a high gloss on it's own.
This is Blueberries and Cream, a slightly darker shade of blue than Pillow Mints. It's also the most sheer polish in the bunch. Formula and application were both the same as the rest, it just didn't have as much full coverage as the others. I used 3 coats of Blueberries and Cream here (a 4th might be helpful to diminish the visible nail line) and no topcoat.
And finally rounding out the collection is Key Lime Pie. I have actually tasted this in Florida and it's delicious. This pastel lime green crelly is a gorgeous shade with a fabulous formula. I used 3 coats of Key Lime Pie and no topcoat.
I did a little nail art with these beautiful crellies! First I did a vertical rainbow gradient. GAH it's so pretty! I have seen these before on many blogs but I figured they really are so pretty it wouldn't hurt to see one more. I started with a white base and applied vertical stripes, overlapping colors a bit onto a cosmetic sponge (I actually used 4 sponges - 1 per nail). I then pressed the sponge onto my nails to transfer the color. I did this 3 times per nail using the entire Sweet Bites Collection and Te Amo from the Valentines Trio. I used China Glaze Snow Globe to add a little sparkle and finished with topcoat. LOVE!
I also did a dry brush mani using the Sweet Bites Collection. Again, I started with a white base. I then used each color, brushing off as much excess polish as possible inside the neck of the polish bottle. I then used the "dry" brush to create strokes on the white base. As you can see I ended up with a beautiful pastel work or art on my nails! This has a sun-washed feel to it and the white amped up the pastels to neon pastel shades. This will be an awesome mani for the summer!
