I have some stunning polishes to share with you tonight, which I received several weeks ago and was waiting for the right opportunity to swatch in sunlight, but it never came. We've had a really wet Autumn so far, and if it wasn't raining it's been overcast, so holos have been really hard work to capture.
I bought new lamp from Costco a few weeks back, mainly to assist me in doing my nails at night. I had previously noticed that I was particularly crap at selecting matching colour swarovski crystals for my nail art. The light is just two rows of led white lights and so far it's produced the best lighting for taking indoor nail shots compared to the various other lamps I've purchased.
Lets get into these polishes shall we. This is the Spring Collection called Palm Trees at Night released from SV by Sparkly Vernis.
These are pretty damn special holos folks. They are one coaters, yet they still have a strong holo flame. Think of the opacity of the aEngland holos and these are like that, except with a much stronger holo flame as you can see in these photos.
Due to their opacity at one coat, I thought these would work nicely for stamping, which they do. I've got a stamping swatch for each of the Spring Collection shades following the colour swatch.
Pink Starfish - This polish is a cool-toned, medium pink holographic with purple shimmer. This is one coat with Seche Vite top coat.
Breeze and Wave Sounds - a dark, cyan blue holographic with blue shimmer. This is one coat with Seche Vite top coat.
Coral Reef - a warm, medium-to-dark pink holographic with a hint of coral. This one has a creamer base and as such the holo finish isn't as strong as with the previous two colours, although it stamps a bit better. This is one coat with Seche Vite top coat.
E. huxleyi Bloom - a creamy, blue-green holographic that leans cyan and teal. Again the finish is creamer and the holo is not as strong as the first two shades - stamping is superb though. This is one coat with Seche Vite top coat.
La Petite Coquille - a multicolored flakie topper in a clear base with a strong purple shimmer. This is impossible to photograph, and it's one of those shades that looks much better in real life than in pictures. The flakies are so reflective that most of my photos had large reflective spots.
The first swatch photo shows one coat of La Petite Coquille over a dark purple jelly polish. Other swatches show two coats.
I even applied OPI matte top coat in an attempt to see the coloured flakies and shimmer better without all the light reflections.
Spring in your Step - This one isn't part of the Palm Trees at Night Spring Collection, but it has been recently released as an additional Spring shade as part of the "Frankies" range. Spring in your Step is a jade green holographic with gold shimmer. This is a light green with yellow undertones.This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat.
