Compared to the previous NYX colors I posted, these four are positively colorful!
Although I have to chuckle a little about the names. For as wildly creative as some of the newer polish names are, the length of the names get a bit difficult to add to the swatches because they can be so long. NYX seems to have reverted to the old one to two word names that might not be highly original, but they are appropos and much easier to title swatches with.
Gold is a burnt orange shimmer that was an easy two coats. Although orange has never been my color, this one is “burnt” enough to go with my skin tone. Definately not a worry if orange tones work on you.
Mute is very appropriately named. It’s a subdued beige shimmer. As neutral colors go, I really, really like this one – not my usual response to band-aid but better colors. Again, two coats.
Pastel Yellow (again, appropriately named, no?), is a light yellow creme. This reminds me of the Peeps marshmallows once you bite into them. Pastel Yellow didn’t go on as beautifully as the first two, but pastels rarely do. Three coats, kinda streaky.
Surf is a light blue with subtle shimmer. Subtle enough that I thought it was a creme when I first got it. Like Pastel Yellow, this was a three coater as well. Unlike Pastel Yellow, I think the three coats are well worth the finished product.
