I never do whole-collection posts, but since I had all three of these, I thought I’d give it a go.
Windestine’s Hawaiian collection is made up of three gorgeous jelly polishes with glitter. All three are very different, but still equally amazing.
First up, Peach Ice. This is a beautiful orangey-peach jelly base with two different sizes of sheer white glitter. It’s very delicate, but at the same time, it’s vibrant. I have a hard time finding colors like this that look good with my skin tone, but Peach Ice turned out to be my perfect peach. LOVE this one!
Next we have Pele. Honestly, I didn’t think I would like this as much as I do. It’s a bright red-orange with, as far as I can tell, blue and gold glitter, and red microglitter. It’s much less red than the picture shows, but my camera has major issues with oranges. It is still a very vibrant polish – the colors remind me of a fiesta! Gorgeous!
And last but not least, is Moana. This is my favorite one, by a very small margin. I absolutely love the base color. It kind of reminds me of Zoya Frida (strange coincidence: that’s the name of Windestine’s creator!), just a bit thicker. But it’s really the combination of glitters that caught my eye. There are some light blue medium sized glitters, large pink/berry-colored glitters, and (my favorite part) tiny orange glitters. Sooo pretty! This is definitely one of my favorite indies ever!
All swatches show two coats of polish with a thin coat of topcoat. They were a bit thick (especially Moana), but I ended up liking that because it meant the glitter and color payoff was great without too much effort.
Which one is your favorite?
