Bonita Cosmetics "Blooming Colors" Collection

Hello hello! I apologize for being so inconsistent with my posts. 
If you care enough to want to see all of my posts, please follow me on Tumblr - I post every one of my designs on there. and always link it to my blog on here if I do write up a whole post!

ANYWAY, today I swatched the beautiful polishes from Bonita Cosmetics from their Blooming Colors Collection.

I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure whether this collection is out in stores currently, or what the deal is. But they sent them along with other Summer polishes so it made sense for me to swatch these as well!

Like my swatches before, {here} I'm just going to go in rainbow order (obviously!) 

That said, #Pink is up first!

#Pink is a beautiful Fuchsia shimmer polish. 
This polish had a really nice formula and shown here is just two coats. I'm not a huge fan of pink polishes but surprisingly enough, I liked this one.

Next up we have another pink, Miss Piggy.

This is a much different pink from the last. Miss Piggy is kind of a jelly, the perfect pink polish - with no shimmer! I particularly liked this one. Another great formula, just two coats here. I'm not sure why this photo turned out so strange looking, for some reason the color kind of freaked out my camera.

Out of the pinks now, next up is Honey Me

I have to admit, when I pulled this polish out of the box, I gasped and knew this would be the one I just absolutely loved. and I was right! I'm a sucker for orangey pink polishes.
This polish looks much more pastel in person, I must say. Shown here is just two coats, very nice formula! and no shimmer! 

Next up is Creaaamson.

This was another polish that I was excited for. Maybe I'm just a sucker for pastel polishes. This photo isn't entirely accurate- I feel like it's much more of a pastel spring yellow polish in person.

Anyway, this polish was a bit more trouble to apply, but I made it through! Shown here is three coats, plus top coat. This is the only polish I used top coat on because it was kind of rough after trying to even out the bald spots. 

Next up we have Frosty.

I would describe this as a frosty mint green polish. As I've said many times before, I'm not a huge fan of shimmer polishes but look how pretty this is! I feel like this polish is really unique. 
Shown here is three thin coats, super easy formula as well.

Next up is Fall and Catch.

This is a beautiful teal shimmer polish. I can't say I was absolutely crazy over this polish, but it's definitely gorgeous! This formula kind of troubled me, as it was a lot thicker than the rest of the polishes. Not impossible to work with though. You could probably get away with just one coat with this polish, but two is shown here.

Second to last is Juvia!

This is a gorgeous pastel blue polish. I have to admit I absolutely loved this one. A perfect creme polish. Nice formula and all, just two coats here. 

Serious apologies for the bubbles. Sometimes the heat causes weird thing to happen to polishes. Living inland San Diego has it's downsides! 

Last but not least we have Spring Violet!

This is a gorgeous pastel purple polish. I keep saying this, but I loved this one as well! It's not quite as bright in real life as in this photo, but believe me when I say it's beautiful!
Shown here is just two coats.

Overall, if you couldn't already tell, I absolutely loved this collection. I'm a huge fan of Bonita Cosmetics. I love that these polishes are as affordable as they are gorgeous. If I remember correctly, they run less than $3. Oh and I almost forgot the most important part, these polishes are available at MOST Rite Aid stores!

If you made it to the end of this post, thank you so much for reading! (or maybe just looking at the pictures, that's cool too!)

Bonita Cosmetics:

Until next time, (hopefully soon!)
