Ms. Sparkle Spring 2019 Easter Egg Hunt Collection Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys! I told you I had lots of polishes in the works. While I've not been posting many blogs, I've been busy behind-the-scenes swatching a ton of new polishes coming out in the next week or 2. Spring polishes are in full bloom (pun intended), and today I've got a new collection from Ms. Sparkle. Simone is the maker, and she just so happens to be an indie maker from the Netherlands. I know of some indie brands in Australia, the UK, and Brazil, so I was excited to learn that there are others in Europe. I know what you're thinking; what about shipping from the Netherlands? These were shipped first class mail and they arrived a lot sooner than expected. I think I got them in 10 days total, or 7 business days. I believe Simone mentioned that they usually take around 7-10 business days to the US. If you're still not convinced, you can head over to one of the several stockists in the US that feature Ms. Sparkle, and some even have free shipping over $50. 

She sent me over her newest collection, Easter Egg Hunt, which will be released on Monday, April 1st in her shop. As you can see from the photo above, this one is full of colorful glitter crellies. I'm so happy there's been a resurgence of true glitter crellies in the indie world.  There are several brands that have stayed true to them, and I'm proud to be able to work with some of them. I was having a discussion with Simone about some of our favorites, and it was clear that she has a passion for them, and has been making them a long time. Again, these will be available on Monday, and they will retail for $9 each. 

Ms. Sparkle Glory of the Snow (2 coats)

Up first is Glory of the Snow which is a periwinkle blue crelly with neon orange and holo orange circular and hexagonal glitter. This one was more creme than jelly and needed just 2 coats for full coverage. It dried with minimal texture, and even a thin topcoat will smooth it all out. 

Ms. Sparkle Green Camellia (3 coats)

I don't know if you've noticed yet, but the names are inspired by flowers and plants. Green Camellia is a pastel pink crelly with neon green hexagonal glitter, and chartreuse circular and square glitter. Confession, the combination of pink and green is one of my favorites and I decorated my room in college with the 2 colors. This one applied perfectly in 3 thin coats and dried with little texture. If you have an issue with removing glitter polishes, make sure to use a peel-off basecoat or the foil method to make things easier. 

Ms. Sparkle Love-in-Idleness (3 coats)

Love-in Idleness is a light purple pastel crelly with neon yellow (leaning orange) hexagonal glitter, larger circular yellow glitter, and small square glitter. This one is more jelly-like than creme, but still needed just 3 thin coats for full opacity. 

Ms. Sparkle Meadowsweet (3 coats)

Meadowsweet is a bright yellow pastel crelly with violet and orchid hexagonal/circular glitter. Yellows can apply streaky or chalky, but this one was perfect in 3 thin coats. Even with the glitter, it dried with minimal texture. 

Ms. Sparkle Winter Rose (3 coats)

Yay, the inverse of Green Camellia! Winter Rose is a pistachio green crelly with neon pink and magenta hexagonal/circular/square glitters. This is another 3-coater with a smooth formula. 

There you have it, a perfect set of spring crellies! I forgot to mention that all polishes are 5-free and vegan. Again, these will be available on Monday for $9 each on the Ms. Sparkle website. If you force me to make some top recommendations, I would say Winter Rose, Meadowsweet, and Green Camellia. You can find out more about Ms. Sparkle on their webpageInstagram, Facebook Group, or Pinterest pages.
