Morning friends! Hope you got enough beauty rest last night. My kids are hanging on by a nail at this point...Summer is SO close! I am pretty much over the whole morning routine anyways so I am happy for the break. Plus it means there are going to be so many gorgeous, bright Summer polishes to share with you! I've already started with a post last week and today I have another for you. Stella Chroma put together a great rainbow of colors and called it the Summer Diversions Collection. You'll be able to pick up the Summer Diversions on 6/15....almost time! In this post I also have the Facebook fan group custom, Where the Sky Meets the Ocean. You'll only be able to purchase this if you are a member of the Facebook fan group. Where the Sky Meets the Ocean will also be available on 6/15. All polishes will be $12 and you can start buying at noon EST. And remember to use my code MNPO for 15% off your total order.
Since this collection seems to have a rainbow theme I am going in rainbow order. Starting it off with Juicy Fruits, a unique jelly polish that shows shades of peach, coral, orange and red with pink and gold sparkles. Fun and pretty, the shimmers and sparkles really stand out against the base. Such a great color, totally perfect for the Summer. Great formula and application. No issues. I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.
Summer Sandals is a gorgeous berry pink holo in a jelly finish. I enjoy the more subtle holo finish here, it's nice and mellow, how I like my Summer days to go! So this polish is definitely going in my pedi pile so I can sport it on my toes! Nice formula, easy peasy application. No problems to mention. 3 thin coats and no topcoat.
Coral Couture is a sheer coral-orange jelly full of pinky shimmer and iridescent flakes. Super pretty color with a fun finish. As you can see it is really sheer though, I have pretty good nail line showing. I will likely wear this over a base color next time. Other than that formula and application were both really lovely. 3 coats and a layer of topcoat.
Lounging with Limoncello is an awesome, vibrant yellow jelly with green-blue shimmer. This color is great! Totally looks like a lemon peel! As you can see, it's pretty sheer. It's recommended if you want more opacity you should layer it over white. But I wanted to show you how it looks alone. I did also feel Limoncello had a little trouble with leveling out. I ended up using 4 coats and finished with topcoat.
Garden Treasures is this gorgeous milky mint shade and I adore it! It's full of iridescent flakes for an extra dose of pretty. This was more of a crelly finish and it built up to near opacity well. No problems with formula or application. I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.
And last but not least we have Wild Blooms. This is a dark, vampy purple full of UCC flakes (that read gold most of the time) and green to yellow aurora shimmer. Once I started moving around my house in different lighting I could see so many color shifts. No problems with formula, applied well in 3 coats. Finished with topcoat.
And here's Where the Sky Meets the Ocean. As I mentioned waaaay up there, this is the Facebook Fan Group custom shade. You'll only be able to get this one if you are a member of the group. I posted the link to the group so you can join if you want! This polish is actually my favorite one in the post! This is a vibrant blue full of green/yellow aurora shimmer and green/yellow UCC flakes. This mixture of colors and shifty shimmers reads as an aqua-green to me. So serene and beautiful! I used 2 coats and topcoat. No problems with either formula or application.
