Sweet As Pinkie Pie is part of the Color Is Magic: My Little Pony collection, that is new in stores. The shade is like someone got a ballet pink and poured a healthy amount of pastel peach into the same bottle. The formula has a creme finish.This is one of the shades that I was most keen to try in the collection, but it is the one with the worst formula the only one I had trouble with. It has a streaky formula, that never levels out; it needs three coats, yet is still a bit unlevel, even after a good quality topcoat. I have tried this polish several times now, with different basecoats and topcoats, but haven't been able to make it work. I have a large polish collection, so three coats is my max, and I don't have any patience for any that need more especially for ones that aren't unique (Essie and Sally Hansen both make more than one similar shade)
I really like this polish. It is a dusty blue with a hint of grey, cream polish. I used two coats, which gave me full opacity. The application was very easy. At first I thought it was too runny and I was worried that I would flood my cuticles, but I didn't. The colour is not too bright or too edgy, which means that it can be worn by whoever, whenever.
A beautiful polish but not my favorite from the ChG line. It is a gray/blue color with lavender under toned cream polish. It is pretty & a bit unique. Unfortunately, for whatever reason the formula leaves a bit to be desired.It seems to be well pigmentated, but upon application the first coat is very streaky. With a second coat it is still patchy and would require a 3rd coat to be fully opaque. As I was using a glitter tc over this I did not bother with a 3rd coat, but if you were wearing it alone definitely plan on a 3rd coat.The texture was nice but the consistency was a bit runny. Though I love ChG polishes, I find that every polish varies a bit in consistency so you can't always count on it being perfect. I suppose that happens whenever things are made in large batches.Again, with this one it comes in the standard bottle with the standard brush.Though I like the color & do think it is a bit unique, I am disappointed that it requires 3 coats for full coverage and in the runny consistency. As such, I would not repurchase this one. Unusual for me as ChG is my favorite mainstream brand.
Gorgeous blue with a hint of grey. I guess you could say it's a dusty blue. Takes two or even three coats to be fully opaque. Lasts a few days on me without chipping. I change my polish frequently so I'm not sure how long it would last otherwise. Love blue polish, and this one is a favorite.
Secret Peri-Winkle goes on a bit sheer compared to my other China Glaze cream shades, although it looks great with two coats. This shade dried pretty quickly (maybe 20 minutes per coat?). Wear has been average (ie: good) in comparison to my other shades, also. Overall, I really love the color itself but would be raving if it was an teensy bit more opaque.
