Tiffany is one of the polishes I got in Zoya’s recent polish exchange. It is from the winter 2010 Flame collection, but it is not really a color I would associate with winter. To me this pretty peach seems like more of a spring and early summer color. Tiffany is a peach foil finish with gold flecks. In some lights it looked coppery. Some peaches are too orange for my skin tone, but I think that Tiffany was pretty flattering on me.
Although the formula is a bit sheer, it dried quickly and application was excellent. Three coats and a top coat shown.
Essie Tart Deco is a juicy peach crème. In some lights it almost looked orange. I was surprised to see that it applied much darker than the bottle color.
Application was excellent! Two coats with a top coat shown.
Emperor is another beauty from BB Couture’s Hailey’s Butterflies collection.
Based on the pictures on the manufacturer’s website I expected Emperor to be a creamy pastel pink. I was surprised but not disappointed to find instead that it was a luscious peach with a slight shimmer! This juicy color is perfect for spring and summer! Application was great, but a bit sheer. It took me three coats for opaque coverage. This polish dries quickly though, so three coats was not an issue for me.
Three coats and a top coat shown.
Here are a few polishes from the new Orly Sweet collection.
Both Cotton Candy and Pixy Stix were three coaters, although my husband pointed out that the coverage on this was not as good as some of the other polishes I have worn before since he could, “still see my nail.” Oh well, it’s true even after three coats there was a very faint visible nail line.
Neither of these colors really reminded me of candy, especially Cotton Candy which I would have expected to be a baby pink color reminiscent of a spun sugar cloud. Both of these looked pink to me in the bottle, but when applied on my nails they looked like more of a coral. If I was in charge of naming them I would have come of with beach inspired names instead. I think they are great spring/summer colors, but that they would look better on someone with a tan. I never tan, so that won’t be me! They applied nicely. Both were a bit streaky on the first coat, but were fine by the time I reached three coats. Three coats and a top coat shown.
