Anyhoo - onto nail polish. I'm going to upload pics from two Claire's collections, a pastel collection and a neon collection. We'll start with the pastels.
Very bright! A real, true sky blue creme (I know I've been fluctuating between Cream and Creme - but I'll go with the French version because it's more exotic). Nice color - but horrible formula. I hate the formula for all of this collection, and even more for the neon collection. These were all 4 coats, in order to even out the streakiness.
And in the shade:
More true to the actual color, a little deeper blue. Still very pretty.
