(all swatches shown here a two coats, taken outdoors in natural sunlight).
I am so pleased and delighted with this collection. I think it's totally on point for Summer, and the colors are all great. Not only that but I am absolutely obsessed with the new Gel Lab Pro formula and the brush! The brush! I can't stress enough how pleasurable it is to paint with, perfection! This new formula just paints on so smoothly, easily, and evenly, it's literally fool proof. It can make anyone a fabulous manicurist.
I was also really impressed with how highly pigmented the colors were, two of which could get away with a single coat.
If I had to pick my favorites to recommend they'd have to go to the one coat wonders- My Boyfriend's Back and Splish Splash.
