Shinespark Polish, 90's Kid's Collection swatch and review: part 1


**purchased by me**


Hey y'all! 

Today on the blog I have the first half of the Shinespark Polish 90's Kid's Collection for swatch and review. The 90's Kid's Collection is the maiden collection from Shinespark Polish. This collection launched on February 28th, 2015 and is currently available for purchase. 


Left to right: Ballerina Bunny, Rainbow Chaser, Markie, Peekaboo, Dancing Dolphins, Max Splash, and Moondust (not a part of this section of the review, look for it in part 2). 

Let me start off by saying that every polish in this collection has a similar formula. Each of these polishes is a neon jelly with subtle shimmer. All of my swatches show 3 coats with topcoat. The formula on all of these polishes is fantastic; they go on smooth and stay where you put them. The only reason they require more than two coats is due to the jelly finish. These polishes dry relatively quickly and dry down to a semi-matte finish on their own, as do most neons. I had no patchiness or bald spots on my nail during application of any of them. Overall, this collection is most definitely a winner. 

Let's move on to the swatches and reviews of each polish. We will start with the first three in the collection: Ballerina Bunny, Rainbow Chaser, and Markie.

First in the collection is Ballerina Bunny. This polish is a neon jelly with a subtle shimmer that has a slight blue shift. Shown below in 3 coats plus topcoat, you can see how beautiful this polish is with a high gloss finish. The formula is perfect and applies easily.

Second up, we have Rainbow Chaser. This polish is a neon orange jelly with subtle shimmer. Shown here in 3 coats plus topcoat, this polish reminds me so much of Crush soda! The formula is the same as all others in this collection, very smooth and easy to apply.

Third in the collection is Markie. This neon yellow polish with subtle shimmer. The shimmer in this one was a bit more obvious than in any of the others. The formula was the same on this one as the others, although slightly more sheer. It looks terrible with my skin tone, but all yellows do. Its not a fault of this polish by any means. Shown below in 3 coats plus topcoat.

 Let me show you a few things I've done with this collection so far in terms of nail art.

The very first thing I tried with this collection watermarbling. I was pleased with the result. I wore Ballerina Bunny on my index, pinkie, and thumb and used the entire collection in the marble on the two middle fingers. They spread decently but do require a little working to get them into a design. They are a little difficult to see in the water because of their sheer, jelly consistency but they produce a beautiful result if you are willing to work with them a bit in this application.

The most recent mani I did with these polishes is shown below. I used Ballerina Bunny and Pahlish Glittoris to make a pink jelly sandwich on my index, pinkie, and thumb. I used Markie and Zoya Purity on my middle two nails to make a jelly pond. This mani was inspired by the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song. :)

That concludes the first half of this two part review. I really like this collection from Shinespark Polish and feel as though all of the polishes are very good quality. If you're looking for a fun new way to wear neons this summer, definitely check these out. You won't be disappointed in these polishes or their formulas. I ordered these polishes on their launch date and received them less than a week later so I am very pleased with Shinespark Polish's customer service and shipping times. If you're interested in purchasing these polishes, you can find them HERE. To keep up to date on everything to come from Shinespark Polish, you can find her on INSTAGRAM.

    1. It really is! The yellow just can't be done justice on my skin. Yellows always look awful on me, clothing, polish, etc.
