I’m back with part II of the lovely and dainty Avant Garden Collection. If you missed it, part I is here.
Mimosa’s Before Mani’s is a sweet and squishy orange polish. It reminds me of orange sherbet with a bit of shimmer. It doesn’t look like a mimosa though. Just sayin’.
Fancy Pants is an amazing royal blue with pink and violet shimmer. It’s a gorgeous and unique nail polish and it’s one that I’d definitely list as a top nail polish color of the year.
Sunday Funday is a bright blue that my camera is photographing all kinds of wrong. While it looks like a bright baby blue, it really leans more on the turquoise side of things.
Passion for Petals is a bright salmon pink that is actually a very nice shade of pink. I tend to think that most nail polish brands overdue pinks but I really like this one.
Budding Romance is a moss green and it’s one of those fuguly greens that you either love or hate. I really like ‘em. They are murky and funky if you’re in the mood to wear a green polish that isn’t really “green”. You know what I mean, don’t you?
Snap My Dragon is a bright red with pink shimmer. It’s gorgeous alright, but nothing too striking and unique.
What an interesting collection! I love that it doesn’t have just the regular ole’ pastel Spring-y colors. Well, you’ve got some of those but you also have some interesting shades as well. I didn’t have any problems with the formulas either. And it’s pretty random but these polish names are so strange to me. Or is it just me?
