Hi my lovely readers!
If you are reading this, then you want to know my thoughts on the L.Y.L.A.S (Love You Like A Sister) Collection from Jior Couture! I can happily say I absolutely LOVE them! These satin finish beauties were released on April 8th, 2016. I know that the full size and mini complete sets are sold out BUT there are a few remaining individuals left, which can be found here . I also want to state that I am apart of the Jior Couture Polish Mavens on Facebook. Sasha will sometimes play games and you win a discount code to her store! I won and bought these babies! You guys should join! Just click here !
Now on to the swatches!
First up is one of my favorites! J’Neen reminds me of Double Bubble Gum. I love pink. But I always tend to lean more to the bright neon pinks than the softer pinks. This pink surprised me though! It is like a bright pastel pink. It has a satin finish and me being a newbie did not realize you should NOT i repeat NOT use a shiny top coat if you want to see the satin effect! So like anyone I tried to correct my error and matte it. Mind you I am not a fan of matte but I love how ALL of these came out. Before Top Coat, after top coat, and even after mattifying it ! Ha is that even a word! For J’Neen I did use three coats but they were thin. I found the formula just a little watery BUT it was fine and very manageable. Not only is J’Neen an awesome polish on its own but it also watermarbles and stamps beautifully! You can see for yourself below! Also, J’Neen IS still available here.
Next up in the L.Y.L.A.S. Collection is Jillian. This purple reminds me of…..Easter. It is such a pretty light purple. The formula on this one was great. It only took two coats for opacity. I think this one is my favorite in the matte version. It just looks so…so…so elegant! Unfortunately Jillian is currently sold out on the Jior Couture website 🙁 but if it becomes available I will try to update! Jillian also watermarbles and stamps! Something I have come to love, is finding beautiful polishes that do both!
Moving on to the third in the bunch! Theresa is such a pretty soft powder blue.The formula on this baby was perfection. I have to say probably the best out of the bunch! Whenever I hear the name Theresa I automatically think of Mother Theresa, well this color did that to me as well. It is such a calming and soothing color! Pictured below is with two coats and a Top Coat ( Shiny and Matte). Stamps and Watermarbles as well! Theresa is still avaiable here.
Elicia! I think this one is my second favorite! Besides pink and tealish colors, I love me some coral/peach colors! And Elicia delivers just that! This one really changed when i applied a top coat but not for the worst! I loved the satin finish but I also like the matte and shiny as well. I live in Florida and this would match a lot of my wardrobe! This had a good formula and was opaque in 2 thin coats. Just like the rest it watermarbles and stamps. And it looks like it is still available individually here.
Now for the last of the Satin cremes before we get to the colorful glitter topper is Dawn. I may have lied a little ways up there. I said J’Neen was my favorite, and then Elicia. Well I truly love them all BUT J’Neen, Elicia, AND Dawn are my top 3..lmao which is pretty damn funny if you ask me because there are only five polishes and one topper in the whole collection! Yea #JiorisWinning Dawn,oh! you teal goddess! She was just gorgeous satin but looks just as beautiful with the shiny and matte top coats! Oh and pictured is two thin coats and I think you guys have figured out all five of these watermarble and stamp..lmao Fortunately for you Dawn is still available here.
Now on to the glitter topper Katushka! <–absolutely LOVE that name btw! I thought long and hard how I would want to swatch this uniquely name polish. I decided with a black and white undie plus free ballin’ lmao…yes I definitely just laughed at myself! Absolutley no shame! Anyways I thought this was best to really show case all the different colors and shapes of glitter in it! Oh and I just could NOT part with my watermarble, so she stayed! The base of this topper is clear but has holo in it! Say whaaat. All these glitters AND holo, why yes please! Katushka also did NOT need two coats. She did bad all by herself the first coat around <–again I am laughing! I did not have to fish for the glitters either. Which I know is necessary sometimes but knowing that doesn’t make me like having to do it! And look she IS available here.
Well mi gente (my people in spanish) to recap. I really loved this collection. It had all my favorite colors, it watermarbled, and it stamped! It is definitely an all in one type of polish! And the topper Katushka is beautiful and unique! I give this collection a 5 out of 5. I had no issues with application or formula. I hope you guys enjoyed reading my rants! if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below! Let me know which one is your favorite and why!? I would love to hear from you!
