Smitten Polish Berrydrops Collection

Hi Hussies!

Firstly I wanted to let you all know that I am now on Instagram! I upload swatches daily so please go have a look. My user name is @holohussy :-)

Tonight I have four of the gorgeous Berrydrops collection by Smitten Polish to share with you.

Each of these polishes is a crelly/jelly base (I say crelly/jelly because they are a little sheer to be a crelly but not sheer enough to be a jelly) with delicate white/very pale sliver flakies. These polishes scream spring to me and I love each and every one of them!

The formula on each one is the same, easy to work with and surprisingly quick dry times. I found I needed 3-4 coats to reach opacity for the photographs but in reality I would use 2-3 coats. They dry to a fairly smooth and shiny finish and only needed a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out any stray flakies.

Now onto the good stuff...!

Snowberry Gumdrop

Snowberry is a gorgeous delicate baby pink with those beautiful little flakies. This is EXACTLY what I wanted from Illamasqua Pink Raindrops and didn't get. Honestly if you're looking for a pink version of the Original Raindrops this is it!

Bananaberry Gumdrop


Bananaberry is a beautiful shade of warm, pale yellow. Yellows are either something you love or hate and normally they really don't suit my skin tone but I think I can *just* about get away with this because its more of a creamy yellow than an in your face yellow.

Huckleberry Gumdrop

Huckleberry is my joint favourite with Snowberry. Its a bright and vibrant blue and it just utterly gorgeous!

Gooseberry Gumdrop

Gooseberry is a delicate shade of green, its almost a sea-glass green. This polish has extra shimmer running through it as well as the delicate flakies.
