Gelish Love in Bloom Swatches – Spring 2013 Collection
The much anticipated Gelish “Love in Bloom” collection is finally available! These bright, cheerful colors are bound to be a huge hit this spring. I really enjoyed swatching these colors and can’t wait to do some spring nail art with them.
I know there has been a lot of speculation about the colors and whether any of them were duplicates, so I’ve also done some comparisons to show you that they are all in fact completely unique. There are some similarities to other shades, but no duplicates here.
These are all creamy finishes, and the formulas of some of the polishes were a little thick. If you apply in thin coats you shouldn’t have any issues. Each of the swatches below has three coats of color.
First up is Gelish “All Dahlia-ed Up”. This is a striking bright pink. The closest comparison that I found to this color was Gossip Girl, except GG was a little pinker.
Gelish “A Petal For Your Thoughts” is a lighter shade of pink that also has some orange tones to it.
Gelish “Sweet Morning Dew” is like no other shade I have seen by this brand. It’s a soft, light orange with peachy tones. I just love this one.
Gelish “A Mint of Spring” is a hard color to describe. When I saw the pictures of the bottle I thought this was going to be more of a minty green, but it definitely has some blue tones to it. I did a comparison of this next to Sea Foam.
Gelish “Garden Teal Party” is a gorgeous teal blue. A close comparison to this color is My Favorite Accessory, but this is a few shades lighter. I love wearing blue, so I have a feeling this is going to get some use :)
And the last color is Gelish “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” – a bright lavender that’s unlike any other Gelish polish I’ve seen. I had a bit of a hard time capturing the color with my camera – it was making it more blue than it is so I did have to do a little color adjustment to try to get it as close as possible. I wore this color to work today and couldn’t stop looking at it all day… absolutely in love with this shade.
Update 3/4/13: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is a fader! After wearing this color for a length of time the color turns into more of a Periwinkle blue. I experienced this first-hand and have read several complaints on the Gelish FB page. :(
