Bottom row (L to R): Let It Glow, Hazy Daze, Seeing Stars

Blue-tiful Horizon

Blue-tiful Horizon is a gorgeous blue shimmer, shot with pale pink and purple. This goes on smoothly, reaching opacity at just two coats. The shift in colors is lovely on this one.

Lighten the Mood

Lighten the Mood is a pale blush creamy nude. The formula can be a bit thick, so patience in loading the brush and a steady hand on application is needed. However, it’s a beautiful, simple neutral that’s well worth it!

Less is Aura

Less is Aura is a pale, nutty brown. Very similar to Picked Perfect or At the Barre, this shade is a lovely neutral. Two easy coats for this one.

Let It Glow

This bottle of Let It Glow was an exclusive from the UK retailer Superdrug. This beautiful coral has a slight shimmer to it, making it a little bit more exciting than your average coral. Two coats to a glowing mani!

Hazy Daze

Hazy Daze is a gorgeous, deep purple that covers brilliantly in two coats. It’s so dark and mysterious, but bold enough to be absolutely bewitching.

Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars is a beautiful shimmery brown with a copper shift. A more brownish/orangey to the darker and more red Ready to Boa from the Winter 2016 collection. Two coats and we’re ready to stargaze!

This collection is very special to me because a) I’m from the desert (Arizona) and 2) with the exception of Let It Glow, the other 5 polishes were purchased by my husband when he was on a business trip to Germany.

My favorites were definitely Blue-tiful Horizon and Hazy Daze, although they are all lovely colors! Did you pick up any? Let me know in the comments!
