Typically, I don't usually purchase a collection unless there's something about it that I like. In this case the Miss Candy collection polishes features jelly finishes and since I don't have that many jellies, I just had to grab them all...Well almost, I didn't get the light pink one and now I'm wondering if I should go back for it, lol. Anyways, I had initially purchased Miss Pixie at CVS and after I swatched it, liked it, I went back for the others at Walgreens.
Mango Mama is a bright jelly orange. Has a fairly good pigmentation, applied smoothly, and was easy to work with. 3 coats.
Bananarama Love is a medium slightly pale yellow. This one was a little sheer but looked pretty good by the 3rd coat. You can still see the visible nail line but that's part of being a jelly. The formula was also nice and easy to work with.
Berry Nice is a sheer deep blue purple. Out of all the polishes in this collection, this one was a bit more difficult to work it. First, my brush was jacked up. It had a split in the middle, which really made application worst. My main problem was trying to spread the polish and color evenly. I think I did ok but I can still see that the color is patchy and some areas are darker than others. It is also quite sheer for a dark polish. I did 3 coats on the swatches.
Creme de Mint is a dusty medium green. This one had good pigmentation and was also easy to work with. I did 3 coats.
Lillac Coolers is lovely lilac shade, a bit sheer, but I was able to build up a fairly decent coverage with 3 coats. Formula was also easy to work with.
Jolly Lolly is a bright pinkish red with a good pigmentation and easy formula. I only did 2 coats on the swatches and it looks pretty good. I think you could get this to be opaque on the third coat.
Miss Pixie is a gorgeous cobalt blue jelly. There's a slight patchiness in some areas but it's not that noticeable and the formula wasn't too much trouble. I did 3 coats.
Overall, the best pigmentation and ease of formula goes to Mango Mama, Creme de Mint, and Jolly Lolly.
Bananrama Love, Lilac Coolers, and Miss Pixie were slightly more sheer but still had good formula.
Lastly, Berry Nice was difficult to get an even color coverage.
The formula on these were not too thick or too thin, just perfect and they spread quite easily on the nail without pooling. The dry time was also fairly decent.
This calls for some jelly sandwiches, which I will post in a minute so stay tuned!
