Jenna Hipp - What's Hot Now The New Candies

Hello my friends!
I was out shopping with my brother for waffle mix and irons when I ran into this collection at Costco. I vaguely remember seeing it (or a similar one) a year or so ago and just walked right on. Oh how my wallet liked my polish hiatus. ;)

  I thought I'd grab this collection because "they must know about these!". The bottles are all 5ML, or .16 oz. Cute little square minis in a super cute package. I got home and immediately started swatching, of course!


Marshmallow Fondont. A yellow-ivory shade. Creme finish. This took 3 coats to perfect, but I could have gotten away with just two. This will be true for the majority of these polishes.
THis color is ALMOST the ivory I've been looking for for years. Someday...




Crème The Cantaloupe. This pastel orange, creme finish is a really great spring/summer color. Another good in two coats, but I ended up with three to be sure.



Pink Lady Finger. I kind of love this pink. This is a creme finish was beautiful in 2 coats. This is one of the colors I think will be in my next arts. =)


Voilet Eclair is the only finish in this collection that isn't a creme. As you can see its a shimmer/duochrome. Kind of. I mean it's pretty much a duochome, just not as 'duo' as many others out there. This was the worst formula of all of the polishes (the rest were all the same at just fine!). It was a bit more tricky, but very much turned out fine. this is 3 coats!


Très  Parfait. My absolute favorite in this set. The formula was pretty much a one-coater, but definitely needed two for swatches. However, it could easily be a polish to apply quickly before heading out and have it look just fine. My apologies the very slight color difference in these two shots. Still learning lightine!




Thin Mint. I have a bunch of mint shades already, but every time I see a new one I want it. I don't need it, but mint is so lovely I want them all! This is the only one with a name I want to criticize. Thin mints are supposed to be chocolatey!


Rose Tart is a bright creme that applied nicely in two coats. I used to hate these bright pink shades, but they are now my favorite pedi color!



American Pie was the hardest to photograph my my re-learning of skills. It was also the hardest to edit to be sure the color stayed true! I think I did okay, though. =)

Overall, this collection is super awesome! I picked it up at Costco for only $9.99! Very great deal for some super awesome colors. I am kicking myself now for ignoring it before, but I am glad I have it now.
Please, if anyone has any super secret special advise on lighting (besides outside, because I am never taking pictures when the sun is out =P), or editing, I'd love to hear it!
Also, 16 pictures takes foreeeever to edit! But so worth it.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you can all get out and get this collection!
