Yahoo for the weekend! I'm finally feeling somewhat better from the flu and have been working on some swatches for you from Priti NYC's Sherbet Collection for Spring 2013! But let me warn you, these ain't your mama's pastels!

L-R: Happy Wanderer, Belle Courtisane, Remember Me, Mermaid Rose.

Remember Me is a fun creamsicle orange with a silver shimmer. 

Check out how vibrant that shimmer is - no subtly here! This is three smooth coats. This to me screams spring (and summer)! 

Belle Courtisane is a sweet and glowy lilac with blue shimmer.

Ahh, I absolutely loved this! I would say this would be my go-to date night nail polish because of how absolutely girly it is. The blue shimmer really gives this an almost iridescent feel to it. This is two very smooth coats with a little bit of visible nail line. I think China Glaze Sweet Hook as a base would be the perfect underwear for this if you didn't want to try to make this opaque on its own.

Happy Wanderer is a soft periwinkle with a hot pink shimmer.

Alright. Now given, the color is gorgeous and the application was perfect, but where is the pink shimmer at? Unfortunately, it's still in the bottle somewhere. For me, the intensity of the shimmer in the bottle did not transfer to the nail and I'm so bummed! 

Mermaid Rose is a mellow yellow jelly with orange shimmer.

LOVE this yellow! The shimmer in this is just so fun and unexpected. Two coats with a visible nail line. I think four coats would make it opaque or just layer it over a yellow base.

Overall: Priti NYC Sherbet Collection is such a breath of fresh air in spring's sea of pastels. The shimmers in the polish really took this collection from sigh to "um HIIII!" My favorites would be Belle Courtisane and Remember Me

Which ones are your favorites? What spring collections are you excited for?
