Smitten Polish Opalescent Elements

Good morning dears!  Sorry for disappearing after promising posts last week.  Both of my laptops broke/dies/went kaput so I have been without computer access since Thursday.  Sad times.  I have taken over my husbands office computer for the morning so hopefully I can get a few things up while I wait for laptops and hard drives to return.  So here's the Smitten Polish post I teased and promised you with.  This is the most amazing Opalescent Elements collection - Neon.  Jelly.  Flakies.  Need I say more?  I am totally enamored with this collection.  It's bright and fun, unique and interesting.  You can purchase the Opalescent Elements collection (pre-order) on 4/25 at 2pm CST.  During the pre-order individual bottles are $11 and the full set is $42.  After the pre-order they go up to $11.50  each.  I know you don't want to hear my gabbing anymore so let's get to the pictures!

I went in alphabetical order today so up first is Aer Opal.  This is a neon magenta-purple jelly with opalescent flakies.  This is a gorgeous color and the flakes really glow inside of the base.  I see a lot of gold and the combination of the 2 together is stunning.  The formula and application were both fantastic.  Great coverage and easy to apply.  The only thing I would mention it to watch out for larger flakies sticking off the end of your nails.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.

Aqua Opal is a breathtaking neon blue jelly with opalescent flakies.  This color is amazing and perfect for the summer!  It's so vibrant I found myself just staring deep into my nails getting mesmerized by the lovely mixture of blue base and greenish flakies.  Again, perfect formula and application.  I used 3 coats and 1 layer of topcoat for full, glossy coverage.

You KNOW I love this one.  It's totally my color.  Ignis Opal is a fiery neon pink/coral jelly packed with opalescent flakies.  This one is super bright and super in-ya-face.  I just want to paint everything with this happy color.  The flakies lean orange/gold in this polish.  As per the norm...fantastic formula and application.  3 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat for a glossy finish.

And last but not least is Terra Opal.  Neon lime green jelly full of opalescent flakies.  Noelie really kicks butt with this shade of green.  I found this one to be the most sheer of the collection, but I know that Noelie adjusted the formula to make it more opaque.  It applied great I loved the green/gold color the flakies picked up.  I used 4 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.
