Chloe & Bella Autumn 2014 Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II

*press samples*

Chloe & Bella African Daisy (2 coats) over 2 coats SinfulColors Spitfire

I'm so happy that I put this combination of colors together because I usually mess it up. African Daisy is a mostly magenta and purple glitters of various sorts. There are also hints of yellow, black and orange, but those are not very prevalent. I LOVE this combination of colors! I also think it looks great over SinfulColors Spitfire. 

Chloe & Bella Brown Pansy (2 coats) over 2 coats Chloe & Bella White Out 

I think I did wrong when using Brown Pansy. I thought it was going to be my favorite of the collection, but I think I should have used a dark base color instead of a light. Blame it on me! Brown Pansy contains all smallish matte glitters (except for the yellow) and contain burgundy, purple and brown hexagonal glitter and the yellow and red square glitter. I think the colors would have popped more with something else beneath it. Any suggestions? Chloe & Bella has also released a black and a white polish to use as a base. The white shown a above is called White Out and is a bright white with good application for a white. You could probably get away with 1 coat, but I used 2. 

Chloe & Bella Ranunculus (2 coats) over 1 coat Chloe & Bella Black Out

It's like a Halloween in a bottle! Ranunculus (what a fun name) contains mostly different sizes of orange glitter with some black and holographic glitter as well. At first I thought it had green glitter, but I was wrong. This had a perfect formula and application like the rest of them, with basically no dabbing required due to the high density of glitter. You can see the new black base color from Chloe & Bella called Black Out which is one of the most opaque black polishes I have ever used. It was also the perfect formula as well. 

Overall, this is a fun, colorful collection. I'm always interested in the mixture of glitters Barbara comes up with. The only slight disappointment was Brown Pansy, but that's partially been my fault. There is one last product that is newly released and that is Crystal Clear Topcoat. This isn't a quick dry formula, but since it is pretty thin in consistency, it still dries pretty fast. This would likely be best for creme colors since glitters love to eat up topcoats. The White and Black Out with the topcoat run only $5.95 each, or all 3 for $14.88 which is a steal. The glitter polishes are also a great value at $6.95 each in very professional looking bottles. You can find them on their websitePinterestInstagramTwitter, and Facebook pages, respectively.
