I had the toughest time capturing this collection as it looks in person. I will do my best to describe the differences between what the camera got and what you will see. This collection really tested my camera. I am planning on getting this collection out to a few bloggers I already selected as well as I am bringing the collection to our Beauty Bloggers of Central FL, so you should be seeing some different swatches and opinions popping up soon!
Before showing the pictures, here is the collection info. We will be offering the collection for Pre-sale starting on Saturday May 26th, 2012 through Saturday June 2nd, 2012. The pre-sale event will be for the collection only(they will be available for pre-sale starting June 15th) and it will be at the reduced price of $40 for all 5 colors. It's like getting one color free! WAHOO! All pre-sale orders will be sent out by June 15th and at that time we will post all the new colors available for sale individually on our site. As always if you order during our pre-sale event, you can order other colors as well, but we will ship everything together.
Now on to the swatches.
First up is Princess. This color was made by a friend of mine one night. She came over while I was mixing colors, trying to come up with ideas for this year. She then immediately sent her hubby home to get her polishes. She had so many blues. She proceeded to tell me what she loved/hated with each blue and why she needed to make her own. I think she made 20 bottles of blue before she got the one she wanted! LOL! After all that hard work, how could I not make it a part of the Cult! This is a soft dusty sky blue with a copper shimmer.
|This photo showcases the copper shimmer. The shimmer is a bit more pronounced in person, I had a tough time capturing it.|
|This is such a beautiful vivid purple color. The shimmer is much more impressive in person. My camera just did not want to capture this one!|
|This is a horrible quality photo, but it showcases the shimmer and yes that does translate to the nail|
Feelin' Froggy is a kelly green with a metallic green shimmer. This one is my favorite color!! When I went to the lab I showed them my favorite green polish and explained how I wanted it changed. I had zero intention of putting a shimmer in this one. I wanted a straight up creme. I wanted it similar to the polish I brought, but I wanted something brighter not so dark a bit more well kelly green. As we were there, my rep recommended that we just TRY adding some shimmer to it. I feel like the cremes with shimmer have somehow become my signature, and wanted to step away and just do some amazing cremes. But then we added the green shimmer and my heart stopped. I can't even tell you, I think I actually stopped breathing for a second, it was so magical! You can see the shimmer in this photo, but it is so much more impressive in person.
|I did two normal for me coats on my index and middle finger. Two thin coats on my ring finger and one thin coat on my pinky.|
|What more can I say. I just love this color.|
|The problem with the pink undertones, was it kept photographing like this! But in person is looks like the first picture. Who knew a red could be so hard to photograph!|
