Today I am so jazzed to share with you the Crème à la Mode box for summer filled with gorgeous neon-esque crèmes that pair perfectly together for some great fun summer looks.
This box is available for preorder July 8-July 15 for $26 plus shipping in the Crème à la Mode shop. It is an absolute steal. The colors will be available at a later date in each of these brands’ shops, but not for as inexpensive as they are in this well-coordinated box.
First we have Indigo Bananas Creme Bluelè. This is a gorgeous lightened cobalt blue that reminds me of the summer sky on a super hot tropical day. This dries to a satin/matte finish and took two easy coats for opacity. There was tiny tiny (I didn’t really notice) pigment pieces in this, but Andrea has assured us she is fixing this issue for the release. Once again, I didn’t really notice this, and it didn’t affect application AT ALL.
Next up we have Octopus Party Nail Lacquer You, Me and Daiquiri. This is a gorgeous peach leaning nude polish that is THE perfect hue to make you look more tan. I think this would be a great pedi (to make those feet look extra tan) or just a real nice elegant color for a summer party. I know I always like trying to look more tan! This was opaque in two coats and the formula was a bit thicker than the others in this box, but still easy-peasy to apply.
This beauty is Literary Lacquers Cyan-Tifically Proven. This is a gorgeous green leaning bright teal color that just calls to me. I love bright teals, they are my go-to color usually and this one is so reminiscent of the ocean to me, totally makes me think of summer. I love all things aquatic. This was another that was easy to apply in two coats. The bottles did show a bit of neon green pigment in them, didn’t effect application at all, and Amy of Literary Lacquers said that the box bottles will not have this issue, it was a mixing thing.
Finally we have the super gorgeous Digital Nails Melonade. This is my summer color for sure, I love me some neon coral. This is a searingly bright neon coral that leans a smidge more orange than pink, but actually has a perfect balance of both. One coat and it’s pinker, two coats and it’s more orange. It is the ultimate neon coral in my opinion and I currently have it on my toes! This was opaque in two easy to apply coats, no application issues at all!
Since this box was projecting images of the tropics and the names reminded me of fun drinks, I created two looks to give you an idea of how well these all play together! The first look, which has You, Me and Daiquiri as the base, shows how they dry brush and stamp over a light base! They look great together.
The second look is a gradient using Cyan-Tifically Proven, Creme Bluelè and Melonade over a white base (though I’m sure you could use You, Me and Daiquirii as a great base too. I dubbed these “I NEED A VACATION” nails as I slugged through a short deadline week last week and they brought me all the happy during my stressed out moments at work. Just one look at these nails and I was instantly calmed down.
Once again this collection is available for preorder July 8-July 15 for $26 plus shipping in the Crème à la Mode shop.
