LeChat La Fleur Collection – Spring 2015
I have swatches of the new LeChat Perfect Match La Fleur Collection today! This new Spring 2015 collection consists of six bright and cheerful colors. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly ready for Spring and some brighter colors. This winter has been bitter cold and snowy here in Ohio with temperatures dipping well below zero more times than I can count, and snow has covered the ground for more than 8 weeks straight. Seeing the Spring colors coming out gives me hope that the snow will soon melt and we’ll see grass and flowers instead of this blanket of white and grey. :)
There are three colors in this collection that have a shimmer finish, and three with a cream finish. I found that the creams were a bit on the sheer side and were almost a jelly-like in consistency. The coverage was pretty even, though I preferred the opacity of them with three coats instead of two. The shimmer finishes had a little better coverage with two coats, though I did apply three coats of each color for these swatches. I experienced some shrinkback at the tips with all of these polishes, so I flash cured them to hold the color in place.
Sweet Iris is a blue-ish purple cream. I had a really hard time capturing this color in a photo because my camera was pulling out the blue tones. In pure daylight it looks more purple than my swatch, but it definitely has blue qualities as well. It reminds me a lot of Shellac Purple Purple in tone, but without the frosty shimmer finish. It’s a unique color, and I can’t wait to wear it!
Morning Melody is a medium blue cream. This color is in the same family as Gelish One Cool Cat, ibd Swag Bag and Shellac Cerulean Blue. It’s a touch cooler in tone (less teal), but they’re all very similar.
Rose Glow is a very bright, almost neon, red-leaning pink with a cream finish. This color is similar to Gelish Brights Have More Fun and Shake It Til You Samba. This color is definitely an attention grabber and is awesome for beach wear!
Orange Blossom is medium orange with a golden shimmer. This shade reminds me of LeChat Lollipop, but with the added shimmer. It’s also similar to Gelish Orange Cream Dream, except that OCD has more of a frosty finish instead of the sparkly shimmer. I’m definitely loving this color.
Peony Passion is bright medium pink with a golden shimmer. I compared this color with my other swatches and really can’t find anything quite like it. I feel like it has some blue-ish undertones to it. Most of my pinks are either red or purple-toned, and this one stands out from the crowd.
