I was super excited when Erin contacted me about swatching these. The Dreams Comes True... Not If I Can Help It collection is based on Disney princesses and villains - I thought the colours she picked for the pairings were spot on and the formula for all of these was amazing.
I have six colours to show you today so let's dispense with the chit chat and get right to business, shall we?
Belle & Gaston
Belle is a soft, creamy yellow with lovely pink and red shimmer (better seen in the second picture) that perfectly captures the essence of Belle's iconic dress and Gaston is a red holo with some gold flakes. I was especially surprised by Belle considering the finicky nature of yellow polish - it had great coverage and I didn't use any white undies for these swatches. Shown here is three coats of Belle and two of Gaston, both with top coat.
Jasmine & Jafar
Jasmine is described as being a minty green but on me I think it definitely reads more as baby blue. It has a lovely holo effect and even though Erin said care needs to be taken with application to not show brush strokes, I had no issues. Shown here is three coats. Now, for my favourite of the whole collection - Jafar. This polish completely blew me away; the plum colour is so amazing and the subtle shimmer adds life to the holo. Shown here is two coats and top coat.
Mulan & Shan Yu
Mulan is a mid-toned, cornflower blue holo with subtle green shimmer. Again, the formula was great and I only had to use two coats although you can just barely see VNL. If you have longer nails you might want to consider using three coats. Shan Yu was another stand out for me. The gold flakes are seriously gorgeous and add complexity to what is still a great brown holo. Shown here is two coats and top coat.
Great collection, right? Which pairing is your favourite? I seem to be partial to the villains. ;)
