Light Pink Gel Polish Swatches Light Pink Gel Polish Swatches

Hi everyone.  I’m working through all of my untried polishes to get them swatched, and today I have some light pinks to show you.  Pinks and mauves are known to have fading issues, so I did fade tests on all of these polishes and I’m happy to report that none of them had issues.  They are listed below from lightest to darkest (I think).  I also have some medium pink polishes that are a few shades darker than these that I’ll be swatching in the next week or so.

This is ibd Just Gel Polish I’m No Damsel, the lightest pink that I currently own.  It has a nice creamy finish and is pretty opaque with three coats.  It still had some visible nail line with just two coats, so you could wear it with two coats but it would be a little more sheer.  This pink is so pale that it almost looks white in some lights… it’s a really nice, soft color.

ibd Just Gel Polish - North Windibd Just Gel Polish - North WindGelaze Diva Bride is also a pale pink, and I think it appears to have a bit of a peachy tint to it.  I really love this color and think it would be great for spring and Easter.  It’s a little sheer and also just barely shows some visible nail line after three coats.

The finish is very similar though.

    I bought IBD’s i’m no damsel and did 3 coats, which it did come out opaque. but I wanted to know how do you paint it where there is no streaking? seems even with 3 coats I can see the streaking with this color..

      I had the same trouble with streaking, but it was actually the brush’s fault. I used another brush from a CND Shellac polish, and then the IBD polish went on beautifully! You may want to try that – it’s kind of a pain, but worth it to me b/c I love the color “I’m No Damsel”.

    Erika, Thanks for the advice. I will try it with a shellac brush.. I love the color too but I hated the streaking

    Have you ever tried using Gelaze with the Gelish foundation and top it off? I love the colour that you have above, but I’m not sure if would work with Gelish. What do you think? Thanks :)
