Cherimoya "Citified" Collection

So I've had this post sitting in my drafts for about a week (oops!) But I'm finally getting around to posting my swatches and review for the Cherimoya "Citified" Collection. The set came with six (6)  polishes. From left to right the names are: Copper, Love Drug, Green With Envy, Blood, Neon Purple, and Angel's Rave.

'Copper' is a (wait for it....) copper polish! Shocker, right? 'Copper' is opaque in 2-3 coats. Pictured below is 2 coats with a top coat. I don't think that the picture shows the full effect of just how metallic this polish really is!

'Love Drug' is a purple jelly with with blurple (blue-purple) shimmer. Since this polish is a jelly, it takes 3-4 coats to reach opacity. Below is four coats plus a top coat.
'Green With Envy' is a metallic neon green. that's right, metallic AND neon! It takes 3 coats for this polish to be opaque. I think this was one of my favorites from the collection! In addition to being neon, and metallic, it also has a slight gold shimmer. I just loooooved staring at this polish while i was wearing it!

My other favorite polish from the "Citified" collection was 'Blood'. This is a gorgeous bright red! usually red washes out my skin tone making me look sickly pale, but not with this polish. This polish was probably the easiest one to apply, plus unline many other reds, this one did not stain! Below is three coats plus a top coat.

'Neon Purple' is actually more of a fuschia than a purple. These pictures (as well as the pictures for other swatches) are color accurate. This polish also has a slight silver shimmer. Below is 2 coats with a top coat.

'Angel's Rave' is a black jelly with silver hex and bar glitters, as well as a few red hex glitters. The only think i didn't like was that I had to fish for the red glitters, and I still only got a few. This is 3 coats with a top coat.

Application for all of the polishes was a 7 from a 1-10 scale. I really loved the colors though! I bought this set at Ross for $5.99, so the next time you're at Ross make sure you check the Beauty section!
