First up is the creme shade that accompanied the famous Mermaid’s Dream in the Resort 2012 collection, Deborah Lippmann On The Beach.  This is a gorgeous, bright turqouise blue with a slight jelly finish!  On Deborah Lippmann’s website, I believe it is listed as a “creme” but I would definitely call it a jelly.  This is three coats with a top coat of NYC.  Perfection.

This is ulta3 English Rose. ulta3 is a great little Australian drugstore brand of polishes that have (generally) excellent formulas and are incredibly cheap – $2 a polish. It’s a lovely red jelly full of gold microglitter. 3 smooth coats, delicious!

Yep. This is awesome. Freaking amazeballs if you will. What you see in my pictures are two coats of IKB: 2012, I read on various blogs/forums that people were having trouble with the formula on this polish. I don’t know if I’m just an expert or what (wink, wink!) but I had absolutely no issues with this. It flowed perfectly on my nails in two coats. I did take Ji’s advice from Facebook to complete one hand at a time, and it was fine!

Illamasqua Stance Nail Varnish ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fuchsia violet with a glossy finish.” It’s a rich, vibrant magenta with a near-neon brightness. The closest shade I could think of was Urban Decay Miss T, which is very close but has shimmer and a touch pinker. The next closest would be China Glaze Senorita Bonita, which is much darker, purpler, and has shimmer. Illamasqua Obsess is pinker, less purple. Deborah Lippmann Makin’ Whoopee is more fuchsia.

Dior St. Tropez is a light greenish, aqua blue creme and was opaque in two easy, creamy coats. Typical Dior formula perfection.

I was disappointed. The shimmer doesn’t show up at all to the naked eye once on the nail. And let’s face it. It’s pretty much an exact dupe of China Glaze For Audrey…. :( This is 2 coats

I love Zoya.  And I love when they have sales with free shipping, haha!  I picked up Zoya LC when they had their Valentine’s Day Sale along with Ivanka and Charla!  I’m waiting to see if they have another Earth Day Promotion, it was awesome last year!

I was so much looking forward to this collection! I know I am a bit late with it. But there is still plenty of time because it still is spring and this is a spring collection. This time OPI takes us to Holland with some funny names, beautiful cremes and some unusual shimmers.
