Serum No. 5 SS13 Collection (Part 1)

SS13 is the newest Spring Collection from Serum No. 5, and I heard there will be more added to the line, so this is a preview that I will call part one.  The names of these lacquers scream spring, and the palette is very appropriate for the season.  Pink Peonies is an easy to apply crelly, that has a gorgeous shimmer and a beautiful combination of glitters.  This is like a jelly sandwich in a bottle, love it.  Heartbreaker is shown over Pink Peonies, but I had previously swatched/reviewed it over red here.  April Showers is really, really sheer.  I'm not sure if this is a topper, perhaps for those cremes that you want to transform, to make them have a pearly finish?  I have swatched it over white so that you can see what if looks like on the bottle.  It has iridescent squares, but they get lost in the base, the pearly squares and hexagons are the most noticeable ones.  Poppy Fields is a gorgeous red jelly, and best of all it has gold round glitter.  Some of the larger red hexagons and squares have reflective curling, I have notified this to the owner and she said she was going to add this to the description.  You can judge by the pictures that it is not too evident, but you know me, I had to mention it.  Finally, May Flowers, is the cutest thing ever.  An amazing combination of pink, white and green glitters (a bold and unique look).  It has yellow flowers and silver holographic butterflies.  I did have to fish around for a couple of nails, but nothing too time consuming.  All the colors are pretty in their own way, I'm still very in love with Heartbreaker, so I think this is my favorite, until I find a good base color for May Flowers.  But, looking back at the pictures, if you are getting Hearbreaker, I think you need Pink Peonies as well, just because they make such a perfect combo.  This collection will be available this Friday, March 1st at 10 a.m.
