BEYOND THE NAIL | MYSTICAL DREAMS COLLECTION
Hey everyone, happy Saturday!
In today's post I have swatches the entire Mystical Dreams collection from Beyond the Nail. This collection consists of 8 polishes; 4 flakie cremes and 4 subtle holo cremes. Each polish has a matching cousin in the same colour but different finish. The collection was inspired by all things mystical and magical. Get ready for serious jam packed goodness!
Let's get into the swatches shall we?
A gorgeous pastel purple creme, with added flakes inside! My swatches show this in 2 coats but you could easily do 3 thinner coats for full opacity.
A pretty pastel purple creme with a subtle holo sparkle. My swatches show this in 2 thin coats and found it to be very opaque within the 1st coat. This is the matching cousin of the above polish, Enchanted Unicorn Horn.
A lovely pastel blue creme with added flakese! My swatches show this polish in 3 coats and found it to be a little on the shear side. You can kind of see the free edge of the nail through the 3 coats but it's not noticeable enough to bother me.
A lovely pastel blue creme with added subtle holo glitters. My swatches show this in 3 coats, and found this to be a little shear as well. This is the matching cousin to the above polish, Sparkling Mermaid Scales.
A fun pastel red creme with added flakes! My swatches show this in 2 coats but you could easily do 3 thinner coats for full opacity. I don't think I've ever owned a pastel red before, so this was very unique to me!
A fun pastel red creme with added subtle holo glitters. My swatches show this polish in 2 coats and found the coverage to be quite high in just 1 coat!
A poppin' pastel orange creme with added flakes! My swatch shows this in 2 coats for full opacity and can also be applied in 3 thinner coats.
A poppin' pastel orange creme with a subtle holo glow! My swatch shows this in 2 coats and like most of the holo cremes, it's very opaque within the 1st coat. This is the matching cousin for the above polish, Jagged Phoenix Talons.
This collection is filled with so many beauties and love the flakie holo blast it brings! The flakie polishes are a little bit on the jelly side but still build up to full opacity wonderfully. The holo cremes are outstanding and are opaque within the 1st coat. The only polishes I had minor troubles with was Sparking Mermaid Scales + Shimmering Mermaid Tail as they were both a little on the shear side. I was kinda afraid of the pastel orange shades as it's usually challenging to find shades in that range to suit my skin tone. Those 2 were quite hard to photograph and did my best with capturing the colour. I find it suits my skin tone more so in person vs whats shown through the photos. I adore this collection and the flakie polishes are JAM packed with flakes, you won't be disappointed! The holo cremes are cute because the holo isn't so intense and if you felt the need to amp the holo up, you could easily do so by adding a holo topcoat.
