Sonia Kashuk Spring 2012 Nail Colour Swatches & Review
Hello! I feel like I have been away awhile but I really wasn’t. I told myself I would completely stay offline the entire week while on my ‘staycation’, but of course I didn’t. When I am home 95% of the time, I cannot help but wander into my office or turn on my iPad and check everything. I think if I actually went away somewhere I could control myself better! But it feels good to be back on track and back to business.
Did you know that Sonia Kashuk has six Nail Colours out this spring at Target? Well now you do!
- Fairy Princess – mint green with blue shimmer
- Purparazzi – bright purple creme
- Dream of Genie – bright watermelon pink creme
- Hot Pursuit – orange/red creme
- Tango Mango – bright coral creme
- Golden Ticket – pale gold metallic
I checked out four of the colors and fell madly in love with one of them, but all were nice. Formula-wise, all were very easy to apply and creamy except the one I liked the most. Go figure!
Fairy Princess is a mint green with blue shimmer running throughout. Gorgeous color and not like anything else I own. I was really excited to discover this one had shimmer because initially I thought it was just a creme. The mint green isn’t too harsh, it’s easier to wear than some other mint shades that look too harsh or overly green. This is more of a milky green, and the blue shimmer only adds to the gorgeousness. Very mermaid-esque! The formula was kind of a bear though. It was thick and a little sticky feeling. I used three coats only because I didn’t go thick enough at first. Normally I would say two medium-thick coats would be enough. I still love it.
Purparazzi is a bright violet purple creme. It looks a little more violet in this photo than it is in real life. In person you see more of a purple shade. Very pretty and bright, if not super unique. Great formula, just two easy coats.
Golden Ticket is a pale gold foil. It’s also infused with some small coppery looking particles in it, which I like. It makes it more interesting than a standard gold foil. It’s what I classify as a C3PO gold. Great formula and two coats.
Tango Mango is a super bright coral creme. Ok so this photo makes it look NEON, which it isn’t. It also makes it look more of a dark orange, which it isn’t. Definitely coral. My camera spazzed out with this one. Either way it’s a great bright color for spring and was two coats.
Overall: I liked all of these colors but think Fairy Princess is definitely the most unique and simply a must have for anyone who loves green or iridescent shimmery type colors.
