I wasn’t immediately interested in this collection. The colors were all neutrals or muted shades, with the exception of Maiden Queen. It’s a good set of colors, though - great color payoff, and over half are matte or satin finish.
This can be a bit rougher-textured, but the color level is solid and it applies well. The base color leans just slightly cool. It’s a good basic “all-around” lighter pink.
Paired with Focus, the creme-version of this collection. I was more interested in the metallics, since most Vinylux polishes are creme-finish, so creme polishes are pretty much taken care of. I love the deeper jeweltone shades - and Tris was a real surprise, since it’s a very close cousin to Sally Hansen’s Opulent Cloud with its darker grey base and tarnished-gold shifts. I stuck to the cools and neutrals. and didn’t get Aggie or Ember.
Blue eyes and bright or pale blue eyeliner are not best friends. Just…not. The pencil applies well, and stays in place as long as the others (the white stays longer than the tint.) But this is not the best color for me personally.
Paired with the Island Fun collection of creme-finish polishes. (I skipped those because while the colors are attractive, I have similar in my collection already in creme-finish.) While Oceane and Selene caught my attention during the 2017 Earth Day event, I had bought Genesis about a year before, then promptly misplaced it while I moved house. These are all glass-fleck finishes, and except for Genesis, they provide full coverage in two coats.
This leans just slightly brown - not enough to be a “rosewood”, but there’s enough brown to make this a slightly less “casual”-looking shade.
Despite the base color and pretty visible particles, this isn’t a glitterbomb of a blush. The color shows up nicely on me, but not as scary-vibrant as I thought it might. It reminded me of Aromaleigh’s Candy-O blush.
