Even though it is far from Spring in most of the US (I've never disliked that groundhog more than I do now), I am jumping right in to Spring collections and pastels!
According to Nouveau Cheap (THE source for drug store releases, such a good site), the Mod In Bloom collection features all new polishes - click HERE for her post - but there are a few that are pretty close to last year's Spring collection called Sugar Rush (which Sam from A Girl Obsessed guest blogged for me last year, click HERE for that recap).
I chose 5 colors from the Spring Mods. On Wednesday, I am going to show you a couple comparisons between last year's colors and the "all new" colors from this year. I will tell you now, there are a couple ALMOST dupes - interesting, right?
Here are the colors I picked up -
Let's go in order from the pic. First up is Violet's Are Blue. Great color with pretty shimmer. This is two coats, no topcoat. Perfectly opaque, no issues at all:
Mad About Hue is a bright purple. It's a nice color, fine formula, but pretty sure I have quite a few similar shades.
This is Baby Blues, a sweet polish with a perfect formula.
Next, let's check out my bottle WITH NO LABEL. WHY didn't I look? I have no idea, ugh. This is Cream Soda, two coats, no topcoat. It is a beautiful peach with a pinky base.
Lastly, this is Nice Stems. Last year's collex didn't have a seafoam, so I immediately picked up this shade. Very pretty, similar formula, two coats, no issues. I obviously swatched this baby before I broke all my nails. *sad face*
Pretty sweet, right? I am SO ready for Spring!! Hopefully these will be popping up at more locations, but I found these about two weeks ago at a Rite Aid.
Thanks for stopping by,
