Silly Bee's Chickadees Island in the Son Collection Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I have a fun summer trio called Island in the Son from Silly Bee's Chickadees.  This trio can be purchased together as a set in smaller bottles (5mL) or individually in full sizes.  The polishes are named for and inspired by the bright colorful and flavorful fruit of Jamaica.  Absolutely 100% of the proceeds are going towards the cost of lunches served to 600 children on Melissa's (owner of Silly Bee's Chickadees) visit to Jamaica to give back to the community she visited in high school  on a mission trip.  To learn more about her fund raising for this trip head here.  She will be heading to Jamaica July 19th-26th.

First up is Mango Mambo, a golden yellow jelly with gold circles glitters.  The yellow matches perfectly the meat of a mango and as I painted my nails I kept expecting to smell mango.  Formula went on smoothly and there was zero glitter fishing.  Photos show 3 coats with shiny topcoat (1st and 2nd photos) and matte topcoat (3rd photo).

Next is Papaya Yaya, an orange jelly with gold circle glitters.  Formula made application easy and no glitter fishing.  This orange is the perfect summer color and photos show 3 coats with both a shiny topcoat (1st, 2nd and 3rd photos) and matte topcoat (4th photo).

The last of the trio is Guava-rama.  Guava-rama is a pink-red jelly base with gold circle glitters.  Again formala was great!  This color is beautiful and I love the contrasting gold glitter.  Photos show 3 coats with shiny topcoat (1st photo) and matte topcoat (2nd and 3rd).

Loves: Delicious theme combining fruit with jellies!  Formula was spot on.  These polishes are also 3-free so they don't contain 3 of the nasty chemicals that can be in polish.  I also love that when you purchase these polishes from Silly Bee's you know your money is being used for a good cause.

Wishes:  I wouldn't change anything - I loved the colors and the simple classic cold circle glitters.
