Some China Glaze Up and Aways

Light as Air. Very, very pale lavender. Almost grey-lavender in the bottle. This is the one I wanted the most from the Up and Away collection. I couldn't wait for Transdesign to get it, so I ended up buying it off ebay. When it got here, I was not impressed so it took me awhile to get around to swatching it.
It looks about 100% better in these pictures than I thought it looked on my actual hands. Maybe I am just not used to pastels?

Light as Air was smooth to apply. This is two coats.

Something sweet was another one I was disappointed with on arrival.

It was also terrible to apply. Thick, streaky, just yuck.

I thought this pale pink would be pretty on my pale hands but I just didn't care for it.

Peachy Keen I thought I would try because I don't think own a single color even close to this.
I really wanted to try stepping outside the box and try something new and different for me.

Unfortunately, I hated this one the most. It felt way too orange on me. The application was terrible. My sweet husband, who never wants to say he doesn't like something on me, took one look at it and made a very pained expression. "It's not my favorite" his way of saying "that is fug".

I had planned to try Lemon Fizz and Refreshment from this collection as well, but I think I am going to skip them now. Maybe just pick up Grape Pop and look to the Essie and Orly pastels to get my spring-time fix. Ho-hum.
