A collection of whites with a rainbow of soft, iridescent shimmers and holographic accents.
This collection is a re-release of the 2012 Gemstone collection, with a twist. The original collection was set of iridescent shimmer toppers. Those same shimmers are now in a white base, and there are now additional holographic flakes for added sparkle.
I’m showing most of these as: two generous coats (to avoid streaking) over a pink ridge filler on the index, one generous coat over a white creme on the middle, and three coats over a clear base coat on the ring and pinky. Two of the eight were a little more finnicky and required three coats on the index and four on the ring and pinky fingers.
This is the first of the two that required one additional coat on most fingers. It is a very cute and soft shade of pink. There is a soft shift to gold at the end that was difficult to catch.
This is a lovely amber/copper glow that softly shifts to yellow.
This one probably had the strongest glow despite being yellow! Not sure why that was so surprising, but it was. Beautifully luminous.
A lovely warm green shimmer. It also shows up easily against the light base.
Seaspray is the second polish that required one additional coat of polish, for three on my index finger and four on my ring and pinky. This one looks like a green-leaning teal.
This is a shade of blue that somehow feels warm…the kind of water that gently envelopes you on a sunny day, not the kind that harshly crashes against craggy shores. It has a soft shift to purple.
This one is a cold blue, a hue reminiscent of icy skies and sharp sleet. It shifts to a cold violet.
I feel like purple shimmers are always the smoothest and most ghostly, and this polish is no exception. This one seemed to tint the white base a touch yellow when used as a topper, as opposed to when it is worn on its own.
The holographic effect is very subtle. These are truly delicate washes of color upon a soft white base.
