This collection launched when I was on holiday, but after seeing them all over my Instagram, I knew I had to get my hands on them.
The launch consists of four new shades that embody summertime, so let’s get swatching!
First up we have Lemonade, which is the perfect bright yellow shade, almost verging on neon but not quite. This is the only polish of the collection that didn’t have an A+ formula. It applied smoothly, but it was quite streaky and needed three coats to get full opacity.
Next up is Scuba, a bright light blue that has the smallest hint of green running through it. The formula on this was much better, applying smoothly and needing only two coats.
Flip Flop reminds me of a juicy ripe orange! It’s a little deeper than your average orange shade yet still manages to have a luminosity to it. This was very nearly a one coater, but I went with two to make sure I had full opacity.
Lastly, and my favourite of the collection, we have Popsicle. It’s a beautiful magenta shade, perfect for those who aren’t massive fans of pink, like myself! Again, the formula of this polish is amazing, super smooth and easy to apply. Two coats for full opacity.
All polishes are pictured with a coat of Seche Vite Topcoat.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this collection as I generally avoid bright colours and they looked pretty garish in the bottle but I actually really like them and they’re nowhere near as garish as they appear initially. I’m not sure Lemonade will see much use from me, but the other shades will absolutely venture out of the Helmer multiple times over summer!
