Swatches, Review and Nail Art: Entity - Spring/Summer Collection

What it do sugars!?!?!

Today, I've got swatches, review and some nail art I did with Entity Nail Enamel's Spring/Summer Collection!

Before I get to that though, I must say, My Opening Lines crack me up!! "What it do Sugars?"! Do y'all love me calling you sweet names?! Lol..
I think it's because of all the colorful polishes I've been swatching lately! I love color and that's truly one of the things that make my polish hobby enjoyable to me.


The Polishes I got from Entity's Spring/Summer collection Came in a beautiful box! I couldn't help but to take a picture of it. Here's what the box looks like.

The Design on the top is so gorgeous!!


I get Fascinated by beautiful presentations, so forgive me if you don't care about the box the polishes came in. Lol...

7 Polishes came in this collection, and here's a collage of them all.

And now, Close up pictures and review.
All polishes were swatched without topcoat because I like to show you the true finish of each polish. They are 2 coats each unless otherwise stated.

The first is this purple Polish Called Pearl Violet. 
I have a weakness for purples. So even though I believe I already have something similar to this in my stash, I was happy with this color. Formula was almost a one coater, but I used two for good measure.


Next is called  Pearl Orange. This one has micro gold shimmers in it that my camera didn't pick up. Lovely orange Polish for summer. The Gold really shimmers under light and I'm sure it'll be blinding in the sun! Would love to wear this one by the pool or beach!


Then Peal Fuchsia. Sweet Pink. I am actually glad to say I don't think I own anything like this. The silver flashes you see in the bottle actually transfers on the nail, and I am tempted to call this a duochrome polish. Love it!


And what's a summer a summer collection without a red? This is called Pearl Red. This looks like the right Polish to use when doing nail art that involves watermelon. Perfect color for toes!! I can see me doing so many Pedis with this one.


I've said it time and times again... Blues are suddenly becoming my faves! This is called Pearl Turquoise and although it doesn't jump out as Turquoise to me, it's still a gorgeous blue. This color is not a "new color", but come on guys, can one ever have too many blues?


Next up is this green. The tag at the bottom of my bottle is no where to be found, But I'm sure it'll be safe to say it's called Pearl Green. LOL!!! Ok, I should google this... *googled*.. I told you! It IS called Pearl Green. lol.. I crack myself up y'all!  Not much needs to be said about this... It's green, it's pretty, it's summery!


And Lastly, a Yellow Polish called, You guessed it... Pearl Yellow!
The formula on this one was not the best. I had to use 3 coats to get it to be even and  look like this. I love the color though! I'm sure two coats would have been enough if I was going to use topcoat.


Overall Thoughts?
I Love the bottle shape and Overall Presentation of this collection. The box they came in is so pretty!!
Aesthetics are my thing, so don't be mad that these things impress me. :-D

Formula was lovely for all of the polishes except the yellow. But we all know that this is common with most yellows. Careful application and topcoat would remedy this problem.
These Colors are bright and very appropriate for the seasons they were created for. Spring/Summer.

I do however feel that I have polishes similar to a couple of these in my collection.
My Favorites are Pearl Pink, Pearl Violet, Peal Red and Interestingly, Pearl Yellow!!!

As a Bonus, I chose to practice nail art with some of these colors. I have never done a skittle mani, so I started with that....
Thumb to Pinky: Pearl Orange, Pearl Turquoise, Pearl Red, Pearl Yellow, and Pearl Fuchsia (All with topcoat).


And then, I brought out my striping tape. Remember I said I was going to try more intricate designs with them? Well, it was time for practice, so I did whatever came to mind. I had no goal, because this was just practice.
I made lots of mistakes while doing this, but, I'll still show you the result... (from afar). Lol...

I didn't let my layers of polishes dry, and I learned so much while doing this. I can't wait to use my striping tapes again! This time, making sure to allow my polishes to get dry. Lol...
Here's the Only Finger that looks decent close up. :-D

I'm proud of myself, but I have to keep practicing.
I also Love how well these Entity Colors work together! :-D

  14. oh my goodness! hey I put up pictures of regular boxes on my blog so...I think you're definitely fine being pleased with such a pretty one! I def. would've included it.

    Those colors are soooo pretty! I agree, a lot of them are close to other colors, but the fact that they're all so pearly sets them apart for me and I think my favorite would be pearl green
