Candeo Colors Snowbird and Sweet Sierra

We interrupt your regularly scheduled 31DC posts this evening to bring you some Candeo swatches!  I am going to show you two polishes from the Candeo Colors Winter Collection.

First up we have Candeo Colors Snowbird.  The description as stated on the Candeo website is: "Snowbird is a mixture of matte blue hex in various sizes with small holographic lime and small and medium gold holo hex in a clear base."  That is definitely spot on, I don't see anything more than what is described there.  I really enjoy the contrast of the matte and holo glitters in this polish, I think it is quite interesting.  The formula on both of these Candeos are great, easy to work with and not too thick.  I have shown one coat of Snowbird over two coats of Ciaté Power Dressing, a dark blue jelly.  I did do a small amount of pushing glitter around so it was spread out a bit more evenly, but that was mostly because of my perfectionism.  It probably wasn't necessary.

Now let's take a peek at the second color!

This is Candeo Colors Sweet Sierra.  Here is Candeo's description: "Sweet Sierra is a delicate mix of purple, pink and silver.  There are matte purple hex and squares, small metallic purple hex, small silver holo hex and medium pink hex.  To top it off, we have added small iridescent hex that flash blue when the light hits just right.  This color has a clear base."  Again we have the play of matte mixed with shiny, although in this polish I think the matte is less noticeable.  Like I said, no problems with the formulas on these, very easy to apply.  I have shown one coat of Sweet Sierra over two coats of Ciaté Big Yellow Taxi.  This polish is a really unexpected addition to a winter collection, but it is really fun.  Doesn't it look kind of perfect for Easter layered over that yellow?  As a purple lover, this was clearly my favorite of the two.

Candeo Colors are available for purchase on Llarowe for $11/bottle, as well as directly from Candeo Colors for $9/bottle.
