Saturday Spotlight: Pink

Good morning!  I am going to try something new today.  Saturday Spotlight!  It could be a color, a finish, a brand, anything I feel like showcasing for the day.  I had a pile of polish sitting on my desk and it inspired me to sort them into groups and this is how I came up with the idea.  So for my first Saturday Spotlight post I am featuring the color pink!  I've got a bunch different brands to share in different shades and finishes.  I do hope you like my feature today and be sure to watch for another next Saturday (or Sunday).  Let's jump in!

Up first I have Fair Maiden Polish Sweet Honeysuckle.  It's a soft peachy-pink full of golden shimmer.  Though I am more into bright and loud colors right now, I enjoyed the color.  It was very fresh and delicate.  The formula was a little sheer but it built up well in 3 coats.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

Up next I have Too Fancy Lacquer Passion Fruit Daiquiri.  I just now realized this is a Llarowe Exclusive!  It's a "coral pink shimmer holo."  I had previously tried it on my ties and found the color sheer and washed out.  Then I put it only nails and it was a whole different ball game!  WOWZA I really loved this color.  I found the formula really nice and easy to work with, and built up to full coverage in 3 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Moving right along, here is Paint Box Polish Sugar Spun Quills.  It's described as a "deep berry pink with violet flakies."  I can't get over how gorgeous the violet flakies are against the deep pink base, perfect!  This really has that lit-from-within glow.  The formula was a bit on the thicker side so I'd suggest using thin coats and letting each dry fully before applying the next.  I used 2 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.

Here we've got a gorgeous sample from Sweet Heart Polish.  Casandra holds sample sales in her private Facebook group.  They sell out pretty darn fast and I was happy I could snag a few last time.  This sample, which has no name, is a pink jelly full of silver holo micro glitter squares.  Very pretty and sparkly.  Because it was a jelly finish it was a bit sheer.  I used 4 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.

Lumina Lacquer sent me a couple one of a kind polishes for my birthday.  I share one already (HERE) and this is the other.  Forever Young is a creamy berry pink full of tiny metallic flakes.  I can't tell if they are gold or silver.  The formula and application are both awesome.  Of course I love the color and the fact that it was a special gift for me makes it even more so.  I used 2 coats and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

Rounding out the post is Cupcake Polish You'll Need This Pink.  This is an exclusive color that you can only purchase at International stockist Rainbow Connection.  This beauty is a blingy silver holo micro glitter in a neon pink base.  It's a full coverage glitter, no base needed.  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 2 coats and finished with a layer of topcoat.
