Hey guys! Today I am sharing the upcoming limited edition “By The Sea” trio coming from Tux Polish on May 27th at 11 am EST. This is a gorgeous set of 1 coat polishes, they were sent to me for review, and I will jump right into the swatches!
First up is Pink Bikini, a hot hot pink creme polish that dries down matte. This one is a 1 coat polish that is also amazing at stamping. Since it does dry down matte you wont want to over work it and it does dry quickly. After I added topcoat to Pink Bikini I also noticed some cracking which I believe is from not letting it dry completely before topcoat.
Next up is Mermaid Vibes and Mermaid Vibes is described as ” a pinkish purple holo with some larger holo and shimmer.” This one kind of changes hue depending on lighting, indoors is struck me as almost a fuchsia but out doors in the sun this is a beautiful bright pink! The larger scattered holographic glitters do make this one dry down a little bit textured so you may want a good glitter eating topcoat to smooth it out and help bring out the holo. This was another easy 1 coat polish for me, the formula is a little on the thicker side.
Lastly I have the namesake of the trio, By The Sea. By The Sea is described as a “teal holo with flakes.” I found that this one had a very hard to catch gold shimmer as well! Another 1 coat polish with a thicker formula, this one did not want to stamp as well as the others for me ( I believe due to the flakes.)
So that wraps up my swatch and review of the limited edition By The Sea collection, in my opinion you should definitely snatch these up as soon as they release because once they are gone they will not be restocked! Tux Polish has blown this trio out of the water, how often is it that an entire release is full of 1 coat wonders?
