SV by Sparkly Vernis Palm Trees At Night Collection - Spring 2015

The new collection is here!  Growing up, we always used to go to the beach on Spring Break, so that is why Spring doesn't remind me of bunnies or flowers.  My favorite time was right after the sunset, when everything was quiet, except the palm trees.

Breeze and Wave Sounds is a dark cyan that won't stain your nails.  It is pigmented due to the shimmer, which is 'encapsulated' so it will not dissolve with the acetone or remover.  I love dark blues, but I did not want to make one unless it was stain-free.  I think this one is gorgeous, but it can be a bit annoying to remove.  It has a lot of that blue shimmer, which can be tricky, sort of like glitter.

Next is Pink Starfish.  I like the holographic effect and the color a lot.  I wanted more purple shimmer, but not only would it changed the pink, but it interrupted the holographic effect.  I think it looks better like this.  The formula was the best for this one.  This is a gorgeous cool-toned pink, with some fuchsia and electric notes.

Then there is the obligate flakies topper: La Petite Coquille.  I feel like flakies are still big this year, and I wanted to create a multicolored topper that was different from the others out there.  This looks better in real life, than in pictures.  It is really shimmery, so beware!

Coral Reef is not coral at all.  Actually, a reef is an ecosystem with a lot of different colors, and corals themselves come in different colors too.  This is a warm-toned glowy pink-red with a hint of coral.  This one dried matte due to the type of pigment, but when topcoat is added, it really comes to life.

Hands down, my favorite one is E. huxleyi Bloom.  This is a teal that screams white sands and clear waters.  I went to a beach that had this quality and I will never forget the color of the water from the plane, right before landing.  I hope I did it justice.  This creamy turquoise is the best creamy holo I own.

Overall, I really love the end result.   I had been working on this for a while, and it got frustrating at one point, because suppliers can be unreliable, but I sorted it out in the end *phew*  These were mostly 1-coaters, and on the thick side, but still easy to apply.  That being said, they were meant to be worn at two coats, and here is why: the depth will not be the same on single coats.  I wanted to do the total opposite as the first collection, so I made these super pigmented.  These are very holographic, yet they all look great in the shade, which is a bonus!
