Hello! Last month I showed a beauty haul featuring the latest Color Show collections.
They’re Jelly Tints, so the polishes are sheer. I thought they were going to be like the OPI Sheer Tints but when I compared them the Sheer Tints are a lot more sheer so I think these are supposed to be more like the OPI Color Paints, sheer but buildable. From left to right above are Grapefruity, Berry Merry, Fuchsianista and Edgy Tangy.
This is Berry Merry, I love blackcurranty shade that isn’t as deep as it looks in the bottle. I used 3 coats and I can’t wait to wear this when the weather is more autumny as it’s beautiful.
Next is Fuchsianista, a gorgeous raspberry shade. I’m a sucker for raspberry shades, I have a cardigan that this colour which I love. Again I used 3 coats.
Next is Edgy Tangy, a zesty orange shade. As with the others I used 3 coats but it pretty sheer. I think this will be perfect for layering over other shades to change the colour.
Finally there’s Grapefruity, which is just like its name, a grapefruit shade. This is the perfect shade for summer, it’s like a jelly polish equivalent of neon shades. As with the 3 above this is 3 coats.
I really love this collection, I like jelly finish polishes and really want to try more ‘jelly sandwich’ nail art. I tried my first one a 3 years ago which you can find here. Then I tried it for a Valentine’s Day look this year. But other than that I haven’t really tried it, despite wanting to and saving quite a few looks on Pinterest. The only gripe I have with this collection is the colours are quite samey. Instead of 3 pinky-purpley shades, a different colour tone might have been nice like a blue or green. But I do think the 3 shades above are different enough. It seems like these jelly tint nail polishes are all the rage now as Barry M have brought out a similar range called Lolly Gloss. The magpie in me want to get them as well!
