Chloe & Bella Indie Brand Summer 2014 Summer Bouquet Collection Swatches and Reviews: Daffodil, Freesia and Magnolia

*press samples*

2 coats Chloe & Bella Daffodil over Essie Strut Your Stuff (2 coats)

I found Daffodil to be one of the sheerest of the Summer Bouquet collection swatches. I ended using it over an aqua blue from Essie which really made the yellow pop. There's a wide variety of different types and colors of glitters used in their colors, and this one is no different. This has yellow and orange circles, copper squares, large and small yellow and orange hexagonal glitter, and yellow bar glitter in a clear base. I got a little bubbling since the glitter was not quite as dense, but nothing like the Sally Hansen ones I showed a month ago. Overall, a very appropriate summer color. 

Chloe & Bella Freesia (3 coats)

Freesia had a microshimmer purple base, so I used it by itself to become opaque in 3 coats. This one is full of glitter! We have purple circles, bare and various other hexagonal glitter sizes, large and small yellow hexagonal glitters, and white triangles and hexagonal glitters. It's best to work with thin coats on the first 2 coats, and really add a lot of glitter on the last coat. The microshimmer covers any bald spots you would normally get. Another beautiful flower-based color.

Chloe & Bella Magnolia (3 coats)

My husband absolutely loves Magnolias so I'm glad they utilized this one in the collection. This has a milky pink nude base with yellow bar glitter, large orange circles and small hexagonal glitter, seafoam green hexagonal glitter, and brown hexagonal glitter. Whew, it's a mouthful! Due to the pigmented base, you can get away with 3 coats to get it opaque, especially if you don't have any free edge on your nails. I think this one was my favorite of the collection!

Chloe & Bella is a new indie polish brand that is the mastermind of an extremely nice owner, Barbara. Their website is very descriptive which doesn't happen too often. The bottles look like the Ciate polishes without the bows, so they are extremely cute. The name and picture that goes with the polish is on the front, so no looking on the bottom or top to find it. The prices are also extremely reasonable with polishes ranging from $5.95-$6.95, so definitely check these out. You can find them on their websitePinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. What are your thoughts?
