Stella Chroma Premiere Collection

Good morning lovelies!  I feel like it's been a while!  I had quite a bit going on, preparing for the last day of school, Promotion, a short vacation, a half marathon, packing my oldest for an international soccer camp...So much to do, so little time.  So I'm once again playing catch-up.  Let's start with some exciting news.  You've probably heard that Paint Box Polish is no more, but it's not gone.  Stella Chroma will be launching on 6/29 and it's an absolutely gorgeous transformation.  The branding and bottles are so classy, with a boutique feel.  I'm excited to be sharing the Premiere Collection with you now!  
A big change happening is that Stella Chroma will be a charity brand!  Pam is a Nurse Practitioner and has nieces that are very interested in science.  Stella Chroma will be promoting STEM careers by partnering with different organizations each quarter.  The initial quarter will be donating a portion of sales to IGNITE (Inspiring Girls Now In Technology) which is a non-profit that introduces girls in grades 6-12 to technology and engineering careers.  Check out their website for more info!  
BUT WAIT there's more!  There's also a giveaway for an uber gorgeous Coach holo wristlet!  Making a purchase in the first week will qualify as an entry.  You can get more entires by sending friends to Stella Chroma to shop and having them enter your name in the notes!  *Wristlet will be mailed to the winner*  Ok, now that all those details have been divulged let's jump in and look at polish!

Savvy is a bright pink polish with pink shimmer and multichrome flakies.  I adore this shade of pink and know it's going to be HAWT for the Summer months.  Formula and application were both fabulous.  The flakies lay flat on the nail and remove easily.  I used 3 thin coats for full coverage and topcoat.  Savvy retails for $12/15 ml bottle.  




Hustle is a shimmery violet with a good helping of gold flakes.  I really like the pairing of purple and gold, it's so classy and beautiful.  Formula and application were both wonderful.  Easy and smooth and no issues to report.  I used 3 thin coats and topcoat to finish.  Hustle retails for $12/15 ml bottle.  





The last polish in the Premiere Collection trio is Grit.  It's a rich cobalt blue packed with rainbow holo glitter.  There is also a touch of blue shimmer.  This baby is STUNNING!  The holo really makes the blue glow.  Formula and application were stellar!  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.  Grit will retail for $13/15 ml bottle.
