Spotted: San san's Soleil Nail Collection

Another spotted products that i just think should not be missed. I passed by HBC the other day & i saw some striking yellow cosmetic packagings that literally screams summer. It's their current collection which they call as Soleil, which would be the French word for Sun.

I have tried their pressed powder before (regular line) & it was ok. I tried it during my pre-make-up days so i didn't know what's the good & bad about face products but as far as i know it didn't give me any breakouts. I'll try & take a closer look at this brand again the next time i drop by.

Going back, I am totally digging these adorable babies! The bottle is really so cute! That tall yellow cap is quite an attention grabber... but so are the colors,right?


Anyway, they only have 3 polishes in their collection which are the:

Right to Left: Moss Green, Canary Glow and Tangerine Burst

Ingredients list....


I'm happy to report that they are free from the big 3 toxic nail polish ingredients!

I just swatched it on a nail wheel though... I am trying to get rid of a nasty nail stain & i try not to apply polishes if i can help it to minimize it. So sorry if it looks very limited.. but i love this collection! I applied two thick coats just to make up for the small brush that it has.By the way, these are jelly finishes (except for the orange).

Canary Glow...


This is a very lovely yellow orange-ish kind of color. It reminds me of those sweet luscious ripe mangoes that are so juicy it melts in your mouth.

Moss Green...


This color reminds me of one of polishes from The Face Shop from the Lovely Me:Ex Collection which is the GR502 (Gosh, i hate the shade name of TFS polishes! so hard to remember!). They look the same on the bottle but quite different when swatched. I think this is the least pigmented amongst the three for even with the same thick coats that i did with the other two, it's not enough to totally cover the base. But it is still quite a lovely color!

Tangerine Burst...


My favorite!
I haven't seen a bright yet hot orange color like this. This is the most pigmented of all for you can just go with one thick coat. I love how deep this color really look. I haven't tried this for stamping but i will not be surprised if i can use this for stamping since this is pretty pigmented. I can't really think of a thing that i can compare this with for i think it looks quite unique.

It really reminded me of an art project that i did before when i was still in elementary where we have to melt our crayons then splash it on a paper to have that abstract look. The red-orange crayon, when melted, reminded me of this & how fun it was for me to do that art & make my very own abstract work. My mom had to buy me lots of crayons because i would go melt all of my crayons away!
LOL!

2 things that somehow makes me go "meh!" on this would be the brush, it is too narrow! It's so hard to get a good amount to cover your nails.

The other one is that when it is drying it gives off this weird semi-matte streaky look. It's a bit hard to explain but it's like there is just a streak or 2 of it being matte-ish while the rest is glossy. Anyway, you can easily remedy it by using atop coat. It's no big deal though. It doesn't take so long to dry either.

But with the price i pay for which is Php 30 (less than a dollar) for a 9ml bottle, i'm quite happy with the product itself!

If you are looking for a bright & funky color for your nails this summer season, make sure you check this one out,ok?

It's been a while but this is how my nails look like last weekend. Looks lame here but it's better in real because it's glittery. I used Del Sol's Ruby Slipper as my base, added yellow (not Canary Glow for i made this first before i went to HBC) on the sides & those star decals that glitters every time the light hits it.


What's your color this summer?
^_~

Hope y'all are having a great day/evening!

I love it how local nail polish brands are coming up with wider ranges of color, my only wish is that they improve the formula so the staying power gets better. :)

I like how the Moss Green looks but the BF might get mad if I wear a color like that, hehe. :P
