- Intrigue – A Haze Of Purple
- Scarlet – Daring Red
- Victorian Crush – Army Green
- Bittersweet – Chocolate Brown
I know I have mentioned this before when I have reviewed Jessica nail colors, but it bears repeating. Their formula is awesome! They really have their stuff down. The colors practically apply themselves. They have such a good, even flow and all but one were two coats.
Intrigue is a smoked out taupe-y lavender creme. This is totally gorgeous! As you know we have had a lot of taupes lately, but there aren’t too many that have this smokey purple thing. This is sort of similar to Metro Chic by Sephora by OPI, but it’s definitely not a dupe. This was the only one on the more sheer side and I needed three coats. As far as I’m concerned a girl can’t have too many taupes!
Victorian Crush is a vivid army green. I am so excited about this color I cannot even tell you. The second I applied it, it was love. This is very different from other army green cremes of the past. It’s much lighter and less brown than RBL No More War, for instance. Less olive more army I absolutely adore it and am REALLY pleased we have a new army green! This was two coats.
Bittersweet is a milk chocolate brown with gold shimmer. I had no clue this even had shimmer until I went outside; it’s very subtle. But holy cow, I love it too! I mean I LOVE THIS COLOR. Sorry, but really I think it’s one of my favs ever now. I don’t know what it is, maybe the hint of green I see, the wonderful chocolate-y goodness, the uniqueness. Whatever it is it’s my favorite of this collection, and I own nothing like it. This was two coats.
Majesty Blue is a deep royal blue metallic with light blue shimmer. It’s definitely got a lot of purple in it also. This is a really pretty color, reminds me of the midnight sky with stars for some reason. I think it’s very pretty, if not totally unique. This was two coats.
Scarlet is a bright scarlet red creme that leans towards the cool side. This is VERY bright and really pretty. It doesn’t really say “fall” to me, more summer, but it’s still nice. I do feel I have a lot of these kinds of reds already though. This was two coats.
Crimson Reflections is a burgundy red creme. Again this is pretty, but I have seen it before many times. This was two coats.
Collection Rating: A-
Overall I am really impressed with most of this collection. I think the Intrigue, Victorian Crush and Bittersweet are totally outstanding colors and must haves. Majesty Blue is really nice and a must have if you don’t own anything similar. Scarlet and Crimson Reflections seem a little out of place for me here. I wish they had included two more really off the wall and unique colors rather than reds, but they are still pretty.
I am not sure of the exact date of the release of this collection, but believe it will be August.
So guys I wanna know, what do you think of these?
