Pretty and Polished Spring Sonata Collection

Today I'm excited to share the new Pretty and Polished Spring Sonata Collection with you. This collection consists of three creme variations, a creme-based glitter, and a glitter topper.

Bashful Bouquet is a delightful glitter topper in a clear base. Its beautiful mix of satin pastel glitters is accented by an occasional large neon pink hex and a sprinkling of smaller green glitter. This polish comes in scented and non-scented varieties. The optional scent is called "Secret Garden" and smells nicely floral. I didn't find it to be too strong but I know some of you are sensitive to scents! I did have to fish for the neon pink hexes so I could be sure to show them to you guys, but it didn't take long to find them. Shown over Candy Carnation.

Candy Carnation is a pretty pink shade with a soft holographic sparkle. Unfortunately my camera took issue with this color and made it look a touch more pale in my photo than it does in person. Rest assured, if you like pink then this is a shade for you! The soft holographic sparkle is subtle (and also a bit camera shy), but it adds just enough visual interest to separate this from the other pinks in my collection. I used three coats for photos but many will be able to get away with just two.

Victorian Viburnum is a mint green/blue polish with a lovely white shimmer. This one is my favorite of the collection! The color is soft and clean, and the shimmer is just perfect. This polish reminds me of China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On, except Victorian Viburnum leans a bit more blue. I prefer VV between the two. I've shown three coats below.

Lady Lavender is a lavender creme base with small and medium purple glitters. I love the shade of purple! This one applied easily but did dry down a little gritty, so you may need an additional coat of topcoat to smooth it out. I used two coats of Lady Lavender for the opacity below.

Delightful Daisy is a yellow polish with a pearl shimmer finish. The shimmer in this one is heavier than in Victorian Viburnum. I was able to see brushstrokes if I looked closely, though they were not as noticeable at a normal distance. I like this shade of yellow and it feels perfectly springy. Three coats here.

The Spring Sonata Collection is available now at shopprettyandpolished.com. You can also purchase these on Etsy, as well as follow Pretty and Polished on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
