Softly Shaded | Seriously Opaque

One Chic Chick | This shade is a pale yellow creme that doesn't quite catch my eye, but is fitting for the spring theme. This took 3 coats to achieve opacity.

This Cost Me a Mint | I do love a pastel mint shade so I can definitely see myself wearing this one throughout the spring. I liked how it was muted but still vibrant green rather than grey-toned. Once again this one required 3 coats for opacity.

It's In the Cloud | I'm not really a fan of off-white cremes on me just because it looks like my white polish got dirty.. but it's only ever so slightly cream-toned and would be perfect for a spring wedding. I wouldn't wear it for work because it is pretty opaque and chalky against my hands. This took 3 coats for opacity.

I Am What I Amethyst | I had a love-hate relationship with this one. On the one hand, it's a really pretty light bluish lavender shade. On the other, it would not photograph properly, turning my hands into lobster claws in every kind of sunlight. I really like the colour, but I guess the blue just brings out the redness in my hands. This is more blurple and greyish than Essie's Bikini So Teeny. 3 coats for opacity.

It's A Boy! | I really liked this one too (I'm a huge sucker for blues) and it worked a bit better with my skin so I was quite happy. This is a pale frosty kind of blue - just like Cadbury's mini eggs. In fact, this whole collection must have been based off of those little chocolates because the colours look identical! This was 3 coats.

Stop I'm Blushing! | This is a pretty pale pink creme that is on the warmer, peachy side. I quite enjoyed this and would wear it for those more neutral days. 3 coats for opacity.
