Tonight I have a really cool and unique collection to share with you! I was fortunate enough to get chosen to swatch a new collection from Tux Polish! This Collection is call the Juicy Jewels Collection and releases on July 22nd! This collection has 5 neon crellies, a multi colored glitter topper, and a white base. The names of the polishes are fun and catchy! I have yet to come across the same names or even similar. The collection will be sold as a set or individually.
On to the swatches!
First we have Sparkling Guava. This is a pretty pink crelly base with gold glitters and shimmer. As for the formula, it’s a little on the thinner side. But it was purposely made that so that it is more versatile. Once I got use to the thinner formula it was super easy to work with! I really love how hot pink but neon this polish is. It does dry semi matte and slightly textured but not as textured as I thought it would be. I used Pure as a base coat for my ring finger and pinky. I did a watermarble on my ring finger and added two very thin coats on my pinky. On my pointer and middle finger I used three thin coats.
Next I have Blueberry Smoothie. I think this is my favorite out of the 5 crellies. This is a purplish blue or as some say a bluple color. It has flakies and shimmer in plus blue glitter! This on also has the thinner formula but very easy to apply. I only need two very thin coats for opacity. I used Pure as a base coat for my ring finger and pinky. I did a watermarble on my ring finger and added two very thin coats on my pinky.
Acai Limeade is a fun bright neon lime green. This one is jam-packed with shimmer, blue almost teal glitter and silver holo glitter. Even though I have a heavy hand and I am not used to the thinner formula all 5 of these crellies have I am really digging the consistency of them. I used Pure as a base coat for my ring finger and pinky. I did a watermarble on my ring finger and added two very thin coats on my pinky. On my pointer and middle finger I used three thin coats. This color really reminds me of the spanish waters I love to drink called Agua de Lemon which translates to lemon water but it isn’t yellow its a bright lime green like this! Man I know what I will be getting tomorrow. haha
Peach Mimosa <– yea i love that name! is an orange leaning peachy color. It has pinkish kind of magenta holo glitters and shimmer throughout! I’m not a big fan of orange polish in general. So I would have to say this is my least favorite BUT it goes well with the collection as a whole! I used Pure as a base coat for my ring finger and pinky. I did a watermarble on my ring finger and added two very thin coats on my pinky. On my pointer and middle finger I used three thin coats. It does make me want a mimosa though. lmao
Last up from the crellies is Pink Lemonade. This one has a highlighter yellow neon base and is packed with pink glitter and pink holo glitter. The glitters DID look more orange to me though. This was a fun color. It definitely reminded me of lemonade or even a tall glass of pink lemonade with a yellow lemonade slice on the brim of the cup. I am weird. I know. I am always thinking of food and drinks! But anyways, this had the same thin formula which by at this point I was use to and really liked how it dried because of how thin it was. Which was fast. I used Pure as a base coat for my ring finger and pinky. I did a watermarble on my ring finger and added two very thin coats on my pinky. On my pointer and middle finger I used three thin coats.
Pure is just exactly that. A pure white creme. And again this formula is like the crellies. super thin. It only took two coats for opacity and dried super fast. It’s great as a base to really make the other five crellies POP or for watermarbling. I am just realizing that I didn’t add the word Matte to the picture but it is the second Macro shot below! Sorry <3
Last up in the Juicy Jewels Collection is Unicorn. Unicorn is a really cool polish. Dominique purposely didn’t put mixing balls in the polish before shipping so that the layers wouldn’t get mixed up! Unicorn consist of four layers, blue, pink, green, and yellow glitter layers! This is her take on a glitter topper and I have to say. I love it. Very unique! It doesn’t try extremely textured and that’s huge for me. Dominique really thought of everything though. She is including a Polish Nectar which is a polish thinner so that if you wanted to thin out unicorn (because it is on the denser side) you can add the mixing balls and add a few drops of nectar! It will also come free with the purchase of the entire collection. The pictures below are from using the polish for the very first time. I have a green layer at the top of mine so it was the more dominant color but as you can see i got some of all the different colors! I also did a base coat of Pure on my ring finger and pinky so you can see what it looks like with and without a base. I did two coats on all four fingers.
P.S. Dominique is going to have an option on how you want your layers! I think that is just awesome!
Well that’s all folks! I truly love how unique this collection it is. Colors mesh well together and the glitters in each polish compliment the base color. What really amazes me is not only do these polishes watermarble easily even with glitter!!!! They stamp as well!
And did I mention they gradient as well. The base colors are really pigmented so I did NOT have to sponge a million times to achieve a good gradient! I was extremely pleased about this! Nothing makes me more happy that a collection that can do it all.
If you want this collection please make sure to follow Tux Polish on Instagram here and on Facebook here so that you don’t miss any updates! The Juicy Jewels Collection will release next Friday July 22nd at 11 am EST. Make sure to set your alarms and mark your calendars because I feel this collection will go fast!
Night loves! Until we meet again in the interweb! <3 besos
