H&M Polishes Review, Photos + Swatches

I saw swatches online and I decided I had to get 'Bella's Choice' which is a bright teal creme. I find alot of pastel or 'bright' blue, greens and teal are too dusty for my taste or neon. I final found it in my local H&M and it looked pretty in the bottle as well.

I also bought a bright blue creme called "U Must Have This".  I would agree it's a must have color. I love it. The consistency isn't bad, its on the thick side so be warned but I don't fine it to hard to work with. I need about 2 coats for a opaque no streak finish. The finish isn't great it's a little dull not a matte or satin like you get with neon polish it's just dull. But I always use a top coat anyways so it doesn't matter for me. I was so impressed with the colors I went back and pick up another color "Check Me Out" which is a bright coral creme. It's light/bright enough not to look just like a orange red and has enough pink/red tone to prevent it from looking orange. I do love coral but till now I have not found a shade I liked. Each polish is $4.95 for 0.3oz.

Nail Polish Rant- review & photos

After China Glaze the Up and Away I fell back in love with nail polish.I'm obsessed with creme nail polishes. I love the spring/summer nail trends. Pinky corals, pastels, mint greens and blues teals make me happy:) I bought  Heli-Yum, Sugar High, Something Sweet,Re-Fresh Mint, and Happy Go Lucky

. My favorite originally was Sugar High, it is a bright pink with a coral undertone. It was a little too coral for my skin tone(I'm very pale with yellow undertones). But I tried it on my cousin(tan skin) amazing! It looked like it should be bright beautiful young summery pink. My favorite now is Heli-Yum it's a raspberry red. It reads like a soft red on my skin and I love it. Re-Fresh mint is also lovely light minty green. I mainly use it on the tips as a colored french. Happy Go Lucky is bright yellow. I plan to use it more in the summer, currently I feel like softer colors. Something Sweet is the cool tone light pink almost a lilac. Not really my favorite.
