Sinful Colors Candy Coated Swatch {Sugar Rush Collection}

So awhile back I got five colors from the sinful colors sugar rush collection. This is candy coated, it is a really pretty lavender color but I would say it kind of looks a bit periwinkle. I think it is a great spring color and I couldn't keep my eyes off of it when I had it on my nails.

Coverage was pretty good, it took two coats to get the color to the opacity it is above. The formula was also very nice and was not hard to work with.

Pink Leopard Print

I couldn't go very long without putting some nail art on the beautiful avon strawberry color and since I haven't done leopard print for so long I thought I would give it a go. This is actually the second time I've tried this design, the first was when I first got into nail art but I'm not sure if I took a picture and if I did I have no idea where it is :( But this is the end result of my leopard print nails:

Pink Avon - Strawberry
Light Pink Essie - Fiji
Black Wet and Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme

Avon Strawberry Swatch

My cousin has gotten me a significant amount of nail polish a while back and has been very nice about helping my addiction. A lot of the polishes she as gotten/given to me are from Avon and they're all great colors. I've tried a some of them in a couple of designs before but I do want to try and swatch all of them individually. This is Strawberry by Avon and let me just say, I love it! I really like the way pinks and blues look with my skin tone and this is no exception.

It is a medium fushia, it isn't so bright that it is so in your face but it has some pop that gets your attention. The formula was really great and was completely opaque in two coats. I think it's such a gorgeous color and it has now become my go to darker pink color.

This is when the sun is streaming in from the window. The color is especially bright looking here and can definitely catch someone's attention. 

I was blocking the light with my body, casting a shadow over my nails. It looks a bit more red indoors and with low lighting.
