I've got a gorgeous collection to make you "Think Spring!" today! It's the Model City Polish Spring Bouquet collection, and it's full of gorgeous pastels. These pretties have a soft flaky shimmer and a smattering of holographic glitter.
I've taken a lot of pictures of this collection. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks.
Let's start with Primrose, a pale yellow crelly-ish base with holo and yellow flakies. I used three thin coats for what's pictured. The formula went on smoothly, and I had no issues.
Hmmmm Hellebore, such a lovely shade of green crelly. There's gold flakies in there, along with the holo. Such a great color for spring! I was able to get this opaque with two coats, however, my coats were a tad bit thicker than I normally like to apply. Great formula. Self-leveled so easily.
Fritillaria is one of my favorites of this collection! It's an orange-y coral crelly with, what looks like to me, gold to orange shifting flaky shimmer and, of course, the smattering of holo. It is simply breathtaking, and you know I love a good orange! I used 3 thin coats for what's pictured, and the formula is great.
You know me and pinks! Azalea is up next, and while I'm not a pink girl, this one is closer to the darker end of the spectrum. I tend to lean more toward the deeper pinks, ya know. This is sort of bubblegum-y, tho, and has the holo along with pink flakies. The formula was a tad thicker than the others, but I still used 3 thin coats.
Pennyroyal is a pale lavender-ish purple with blurple flakies and holo. This one is kind of deceptive. You don't know just how pretty it is until it's under certain light. The sun brings out the holo, but the inside shots really bring out the flakies! I used 3 thin coats for what's pictured.
But my, oh my, did I save the best for last. Himalayan Poppy is seriously thebomb.com. Matter of fact I'm still wearing it as I type this post (and I took pictures of the polish on Monday). Aside from normal tipwear, it's perfect! There's blue flakies in the bright blue crelly base, and they are beautiful! I used 3 thin coats for what's pictured. I can attest that wear time is great :)
