Hi Everyone! I’m back from vacation and I have swatches of the new Gelish Once Upon a Dream Collection for you! I am really excited to see some pastels in the mix. Below are my swatches, each has three coats of color. The formula of the polishes was great and they applied with ease. I will report back in a couple of days with comparison photos and any fading reports.
This is My One Blue Love, a soft baby blue. This is definitely a unique color in the Gelish line, no other blues are anything like it. This is my personal favorite of the bunch, but you know I’m a total sucker for blues!
This is Kiss Me, I’m a Prince, a minty pastel green. The only color that is close to this one is Seafoam, so I’ll be sure to compare them. Kiss Me, I’m a Prince is a bit lighter/brighter than Seafoam.
All Haile the Queen is a pinkish lilac shade. It’s more pink than I was anticipating. It’s similar to It’s a Lily, only lighter. I’m very afraid that this one may be a fader, so I’ll keep an eye on it for a couple of days. The color when it’s wet is more lilac than after it cures. You can see the color difference when applying additional coats.
Oh What a Knight! is a shimmery metallic color that I would call a pinkish bronze. I wasn’t sure that it worked well with my skin tone when I first applied it, but it grew on me. It’s definitely a unique color and the finish is really nice. Be careful when applying though because it could show some brush strokes.
Fairest of Them All is a gorgeous coral color, but was a bit hard to photograph. It may be slightly lighter in person than it appears in my pictures. It’s darker than Sweet Morning Dew, but lighter than Tiger Blossom.
And finally this is She’s My Beauty, which is a dusty rose shade. I thought this color would have a little more pink in it. It’s a bit dull for my taste. It reminds me of Exhale, but is definitely lighter. She’s My Beauty looks a lot like the Daisy gel shade that I just swatched called Butternut Squash.
