Caronia Sweet Bliss Collection

My Caronia Sweet Bliss Collection is now complete! When I first saw swatches of the shades in this collection, I knew I just HAD to get them all. You all know how much I love Caronia polishes, right? Hazel even called me Miss Caronia Girl. LOL. Anyway, I already had Baby Pink so I only needed the other five shades. Check Caronia's website *here* to know more about their summer collection :)

This collection consists of six lovely shades - First Crush (rich lilac), On the Go (aqua green), Sun Kissed (pumpkin orange), Summer Fling (coral red), Sweet Surprise (lemon yellow), Baby Pink (salmon pink).

Now onto the swatches :)

The shades are really nice and summer-y! I love the shades but my top three would have to be First Crush, Summer Fling and On the Go because of the formula. These three shades are opaque in one coat and very easy to apply. Sun Kissed is a bit streaky. It took me two coats to get a nice even color. Sweet Surprise is even more streaky that I needed to apply 3-4 coats to get an even color. Baby Pink, as I have said in my post *here,* is a bit sheer. I usually apply 3-4 layers to get a nice opaque color. It's not as streaky as Sun Kissed and Sweet Surprise but it looks streaky in the pictures because I didn't remove my old polish before swatching it (my bad). Anyway, I really like the shades in this collection but half of them are a bit of a handful to apply. 

And that's about it! What's your favorite shade from this collection? :)

  20. I'm a little sad Caronia has Toluene in it. Not a fan of the formula either, but On the Go is my favorite, First Crush is a little thick but I love the color! :)
