On The Way To Cape May Collection from Heather's Hues Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today I have a fun collection called On The Way To Cape May from Heather's Hues.  This is the second collection I've reviewed for Heather and I was just as pleased with this collection as the last.  As a reminder from the last review, Heather's Hues is hand blended and 5-free so they don't contain 5 of the nasties that nail polish can contain.  This collection contains 5 crellies, 2 jellies and a glitter topper.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Under The Boardwalk.  Under The Boardwalk is a pretty royal blue glitter jelly with turquoise holo hexes, small silver hexes and silver holo micro bars.  I am bummed I forgot to mattify this polish.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

Next is Beach Grass, which is a lovely pearlescent light pastel green crelly.  I was able to somewhat capture the pearly character of it in the kitchen light.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

Sailor's Delight is a wonderful rosy gold, mauve color with gold micro glitters.  This is the perfect work appropriate polish that is creamy and beautiful.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

One of my favorites is Sea Isle Sky.  This is a light blue crelly that has blue micro flakes that makes it shimmer.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

Next is Skinny Dipping, which is a nude crelly with violet shimmy (which I couldn't capture).  This polish is also perfect for work.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

The Lighthouse is the glitter topper of the collection and it combined perfectly with Skinny Dipping.  The Lighthouse contains red squares, black diamonds, silver hexes, iridescent glitter, gold shards and silver bars.  I loved the choices in shapes and colors in this glitter topper.  The formula I received has since been improved upon (mine was a bit thick, but not unmanageable).  Photos show 1 coat dabbed on with slight glitter placement with shiny topcoat.

Next is Sunkissed, which is a yellow crelly with gold micro glitters.  What I really like about this polish is that you can choose whether you want it with or without extra glitters added (neon yellow, banana yellow and goldenrod).  This makes you feel like you are creating your own masterpiece.  The formula on this on was a little thick, but not unworkable.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

Lastly I have my other favorite of the collection a blue jelly with scattered holo glitter.  WOW!  This one amazed me.  I also had to capture a photo with matte topcoat, because I can.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny and matte topcoat.

Loves: as always, Heather has made a cute fun imaginative collection.  She just released that her next collection will be on Disney Princesses.  How exciting!  I also enjoyed the diversity of polish types: crellies, jellies and a glitter topper.  And of course being 5-free is always an added plus!

Wishes: after speaking to Heather, she has informed me of some formula tweaks that were made in The Lighthouse and also that I received the last of the batch of Sunkissed, so it may have had more micro glitter than a typical bottle.  I love when an indie takes feedback and has already fixed the issue.

Heather's Hues can be bought HERE and she is on instagram (@heathers_hues) and Facebook.
