Hello Loves! I have the newest IBD Just Gel Collection to show you today. Hideaway Haven consists of four nature inspired creams, two shimmers and two glitter toppers. Ready to see them?
First up is Tranquil Surrender. This wine toned shimmer is a great contender for a Marsala shade (the Pantone Color of the Year). Application was a breeze and I found it offers full coverage in two easy coats.
Sweet Sanctuary is a medium, blue toned purple cream. I would call it a little subdued. Application is average for IBD and I found it needed three thin coats for full coverage.
Serene Slumber is a nice, pastel leaning coral. This is a great transition shade from summer to fall. It is cheerful without being too bright. Application was nice with two coat coverage.
Head in the Clouds is one of my favorites from this collection. This medium-light grey is loaded with a soft iridescent shimmer. I found it needed three thin coats for full coverage but you could probably get away with two.
Calm Oasis is a muted blue cream with grey undertones. Honestly, I have been dreaming of a color like this for a long time. You know I love my blues...and this soft shade is fabulous when you don't really want a vivid shade. This is three thin coats.
The final color in this collection is a soft, nude toned pink cream called Beauty Sleep. I love the color itself, but I had issues with coverage on this one. This is three coats and you can see that it is still a little patchy. Given, I usually struggle with super light colors, but I just couldn't bring myself to do a four coat swatch.
Let's take a look at the glitters from the Hideaway Haven Collection. I admit, I'm not usually a huge fan of the IBD Just Gel glitter combinations. Some of them are pretty, but I find I really don't have much use for most of them. Well, this collection is a game changer for me. These two glitters are just gorgeous and I can see myself using them quite a bit.
Mystical Muse is small and large silver hex glitter in a golden shimmer packed clear base. The shimmer looks a little silver in the photos, but it is definitely gold. This is two coats over my natural nail. As with most of the IBD glitters, these do benefit from sitting upside down for a bit followed by a good shake.
Here she is as one coat over Calm Oasis. So sparkly and pretty! Gah! I wish my camera had captured the golden shimmer better. You can see it a little bit in the previous photo above.
The second glitter is very similar to Mystical Muse. Whimsical Wanderer has the same golden shimmer packed base but the glitters are rose gold instead of silver. This one is a must have for fall. Layer it over any deep color for an instant wow factor. This is two coats over my natural nail.
I layered one coat over sweet sanctuary here. Just imagine it over a deeper red toned purple! Heck, I'll likely show it to you over one this fall. I can't imagine myself not wearing it that way at least once. ;) Of course, my camera lost the rose gold of the glitters a bit in this photo. The previous shot is probably the best representation of the glitters.
What do you think of the new Hideaway Haven Collection from IBD? I found many of them on Amazon and linked them in the descriptions above. Of course, they are likely avaliable at your favorite distributor as well. :)
