Gelish Snow Escape Collection (Winter 2013) Swatches & Review
360 Black Flip is a dark jelly base with fine holographic glitter. In this swatch I applied 3 coats on the index and middle finger, and two coats over a black base on the ring finger and pinky. The base is very sheer and it would take a lot of coats to get it opaque, so I recommend layering this over other colors. The glitter is stunning, but it reminds me of Vegas Nights and I think the effect is similar to applying Vegas Nights over black.
Sledding in Style is a glitter topper with multi-color glitter of different sizes. I think this would look great over another color like Let’s Hit the Bunny Slopes (below). This swatch is three coats with no base color underneath.
Race You To The Bottom is my favorite of the bunch. I’m sure you know by now that teal is my favorite color, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one and it certainly didn’t disappoint! This is a gorgeous shimmery polish. I call a dark teal, but it really takes on different colors depending on the lighting. It’s very sultry. I was going to do some nail art for Christmas, but as soon as I saw this I knew I would be wearing it for the holiday. I can’t even bring myself to do nail art over top of it because I love it so much. <3<3<3 This swatch is only two coats.
Wanna Share a Lift? is a glittery red jelly polish. My photos don’t do it justice because it really sparkles in the light. It is similar to Good Gossip and All Tied Up With a Bow in ways, but it’s a little darker than these two. I’ll post some comparison pics within a couple of days, so be sure to check back to see those. This swatch is three coats.
I Heart My Instructor is a creamy dark blue – I think this is the darkest creamy blue out there. Let me know what colors you would like to see this compared with and I’ll take some pictures. I’m thinking of comparing it to Deep Sea, Caution and After Dark. This swatch is only two coats, so it it has really good coverage.
And Let’s Hit the Bunny Slopes is a creamy medium grey. I will post some comparison pictures of greys too, but this is definitely a unique color. It’s darker than Cashmere Kind of Gal and lighter than some of the other greys. It also has some slight blue-ish tones to it. I think it’s really classy. I haven’t had time to test it for fading yet, but I’ll be sure to post an update if I find any issues with the color changing.
Here is a short video that I put together to show the colors with some movement and lighting.
I haven’t found this collection for sale many places online yet, but it’s available here.
Merry Christmas everyone!
