Hi there, my darlings! It's 90 degrees in NYC today...that's right! NINETY DEGREES! I mean, we barely had a couple of days of Spring and it already feels like...Summer?! Although this girl isn't a big fan of hot weather, what I AM a fan of is Summer colors! Bold, bright colors?! Yes, please! And Smokey Mountain Lacquers' Fun in the Sun collection for Summer 2016 is perfect for that! Let's take a look!
Before we get to swatches, let's take a minute to talk about the formula and application of these polishes. Across the board, each applied just beautifully and was perfectly opaque in just 2 easy coats--I've swatched for Kim for awhile now and her formulas just keep getting better and better! Unless specifically mentioned, the swatches below show just 2 coats of each polish by itself. Alrighty, now without any further ado--swatches!
Beach Baby is described as a "medium purple linear holo." One of my absolute faves from this collection, I love this orchid toned purple!
Catching Rays is described as a "yellow linear holo." Neons can be tricky but hands-down, this one was one of the easiest neons I've EVER worked with! Three thin coats that went on so beautifully!
I Sea You is described as a "light blue linear holo with blue frost micro glitter." Another instant fave, this is such a gorgeous blue!
It's A Shore Thing is described as a "medium pink linear holo." As I've whined about countless times, most pinks don't work very well for me but this salmon-toned beauty is perfect!
Sizzlin' Summer is described as a "multi chrome that shifts between red, yellow, orange and mauve." Bold and intriguing, the shifts in this beauty is quite interesting to see! Shown here just 3 thin coats by itself.
Mermaid Kisses is described as a "dark blue jelly filled with sapphire galaxy holo glitter." Just 3 thin coats for full opacity and extra bling, topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. I love how intense this shade of blue is and the gorgeous galaxy glitter!
Sun Kissed is described as a "orange linear holo." Juicy, pretty orange!
