Hello Loves! I have the most recent Pink Gellac Collection to show you today. The V.i.p. Collection consists of 5 gorgeous pink shades, ranging from a classic cream to a funky glittery finish. Before we get to the swatches, Pink Gellac did something awesome with this collection. They changed the brushes! Yep, the old, stiff brushes have been replaced with a softer, fuller brush with a rounded tip. And let me tell you, it is fantastic! I've actually asked Andrea to look into getting replacement brushes for the rest of my Pink Gellac collection. I love the new brush that much!
Excuse the photo quality - I have my Pink Gellac collection at the salon and forgot to take a bottle home that has the original brush, so this is a cell phone shot taken in my nail room at the Salon. But here's the old brush (left) and the new brush (right).
Let's get to the swatches, shall we?
First up is my personal favorite of the collection, Lovely Pink. Lovely pink is a soft, pastel pink with purple undertones and a subtle shimmer. I found it to be opaque in 2-3 coats. Why do I say 2-3 instead of just 2 or just 3? Well...it was opaque in 2 coats on my natural nails, but I needed 3 over the clear gel extension I'm sporting on my middle finger. ;)
Next up is another classic pink. Flamingo Pink is a soft, peachy pink with a frosty finish. To be completely honest, this is my least favorite of the collection. It is a beautiful color, but I just can't love it. It reminds me of the polish my Mama wore a lot when I was a kid. But if you love frosty finishes and peachy toned pinks, this is your kind of color. I found it to need three coats for full coverage.
Ready to see the less classic and funkier shades in the collection? Partylicious Pink actually surprised me. In the bottle, she looks much more red toned with a super strong shimmer. But I found when applying her, she took on a brighter appearance with purplely undertones. The shimmer is a little off here since my camera decided to be a pain. It's actually more of a golden toned shimmer. Application was a breeze with the new brush, but I did end up using three coats for full coverage.
Finally, Sparkling Pink is a red toned pink jelly base that is loaded with metallic pink glitter. I found this one a little tricky to apply since the glitter is on the larger side and wanted to pull down the nail. But after three coats, the glitter coverage evened out a bit. In the end, I really like the effect.
