Hello again lovely readers! I have Baroness X’s newest collection to show you all. I’ve been waiting for a new release from Demi and I’m so glad we get a summer set! These are all true neons that are bright and summery in person. Fun fact, in the summer we take our son to this amazing shaved ice stand down the road and they coat them in ice cream and condensed milk omg… it’s so GOOD. Every time I’ve worked on this collection it’s made me want to head down there!
Tiger’s Blood – Pink neon base with white microflakes, purple shimmer and blue/purple aurora. (This is a blend of watermelon, strawberry and coconut at many shaved ice shops.)
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels on the medium side, and applies dense. As a blanket statement, all of the neons in this set can be reached with 2-3 coats for opacity. I usually go in with medium coats, so these will depend on your application type. They all dry down satin-like so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat. In this post I’m using Baroness X’s liquid crystal topcoat.
Guava – Orange neon with white microflakes, green microflake and turquoise shimmer.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Similar in application and feel to Tiger’s Blood, this is super bright and in your face.
Green River – Green neon with white microflake, gold microflake and gold shimmer. (This is a lemon-lime flavor at shaved ice shops.)
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is similar to the previous two, and I’d classify this as a true neon green, as it has a white undertone to it.
Blue Hawaiian – Teal neon with white microflake and blue to violet shifting aurora and matching shimmer.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels similar to the others, and the shimmer really popped as a strong blue in this one!
Lilikoi – A bright violet jelly with white microflake and orange to green shifting shimmer, this polish comes with a sample of our Anti Aging Lip Balm in a Lilikoi Rose scent. (Lilikoi is the Hawaiian word for passion fruit.)
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is a little heavier than the others, though again I’d say 2-3 coats depending on your application preference. If you go in for that third coat, you’ll get a slightly deeper purple appearance. The shimmer is crazy strong in this one and easily shifts to green.
Snowcapped – This clear based topper has small to medium sized orange/gold/green shifting glitter, and a sprinkle of holo and white microflakes. (This is what you ask for if you want sweetened condensed milk on top of your shaved ice.)
Swatches show one coat over Lolikoi. I’m bummed my camera literally ate the appearance of this beauty. The topper has larger flakes that give a super strong iridescent effect and glow-y appearance.
And finally, I wanted to see if these beauties marbled, and they sure did! I topped with Snowcapped and I was so mad my camera at the iridescent goodness 😦 Just note in person, the watermarble has loads of shimmer from the polishes and the topper gave such a lovely iridescent reflect to it. My swatch video shows the entire process on how I did this.
These will release at 6/15 at noon PT. Full sets will be available until sold out. Each polish is $10 except for Lilikoi which is $12. You can grab the full set for $55.
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
