I never thought a collection of Pastel colors would excite me as much as this one did. I've never been a big fan of pastels. Previous experiences with pastels just left me quite disappointed since they can tend to be very streaky and require several coats. When these arrived I did a quick swatch of these on my nails just over the manicure I had on. I saw that these were highly pigmented and were covering up in pretty much once coat. I was impressed. Now that's something I don't see all the time, I roughly have I dunno approx 2,000 polishes ( I think) and so it's rare for any polishes to really knock my socks off. These did.
Most of them go on smooth like butter and Most of them could be one coaters. Out of habit every manicure I ever do is 2-3 coats and I always wear a top coat, so thats what I naturally did with these. There were no standouts for me as far as poor application, They all went on nicely, a few of the lighter ones needed an extra coat. Now of course not every polish in this collection was a mega star to me but it was more because the shade didn't really appeal to me. I'll go ahead and just say it, Once in a Blue Mousse you are the weakest link, goodbye! But on the plus side I was super surprised that I actually really liked the orange and the yellow in the collection since well I'm not a big fan of those colors in general.
These are pastels but a few are borderline Neon. Which I don't mind since I love me some Neon! These colors in general are pretty unique although I do have a few similar polishes but nothing quite close to these. The Colors in the collection play well with each other and Ive had fun mixing and matching them. I've been playing with them all week and it's been great, hah even got several compliments while out and about! I'm gonna have to do some nail art with these before I put them up.
This is my First experience with Lime Crime and although I've heard of some of the past drama with the brand to me it doesn't matter. As long as the product and service is good that's what matters in my book. I believe in second chances and with a collection like this they are worthy of it. These retail for $39.99 for the whole collection or $5.99 a bottle. Each bottle is 9ml. They can be purchased directly here: Lime Crime
I'm looking forward to future Collections because this one was a lot of fun! My only complaint yes of course I have one... The bottle... While I think it's cute, love the logo and the frosted texture is neat. It's not a very uncomfortable bottle to hold while you're taking pictures! Jokes aside very impressed with these.
My top three absolutely love polishes from this collection are 1. Pastelchio 2. Lavendairy 3. Milky Way
