About a month ago I was on my way home from work and sitting in a lengthy Starbucks drive thru line to get my trenta iced coffee (don’t judge… yes it was 6pm, but it was necessary!) and I heard my phone ping. Checked the email and it was from the lady behind the indie brand Serum No. 5. I was in a bit of shock! Would I mind reviewing a couple of her polishes? OF COURSE I WOULDN’T MIND!
So here we are. For my first Serum No. 5 post I will be showing you 4 of the lovely shades from her upcoming SS14 Collection! The complete collection consists of 11 polishes I believe, so this is just a small sample of the amazing shades she’s releasing. I was also sent 8 shades from previous releases to review, so you will see those very soon!
Blushed And Flushed
Blushed And Flushed might just be my favorite of the 4 I received! Blushed And Flushed is a delicate baby pink jelly base with silver holographic hex glitter, matte white hex glitter and small pink hex glitters mixed in. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Lilac It? Love It!
Lilac It? Love It! is a gorgeous lilac jelly base with small silver, purple and fuchsia hex glitters and medium matte white hex glitters mixed in. I used 3 thin coats for these photos. Another beauty and would have been my #1 if I hadn’t received Blushed And Flushed!
Some Bunny Loves You
Some Bunny Loves You is a glittery topcoat packed with various sized matte white hex and dot glitter as well as pastel yellow, coral, lavender and pink glitters mixed in. I used 2 coats of Some Bunny Loves You over Dior Bouquet for these photos.
G.I. Miss You
G.I. Miss You is the final creation I have to show you tonight! This is another glitter top coat with a beautiful mix of bronze, copper, brown and green hexes mixed in. But it’s not just any clear base… it’s a glow in the dark base! I used 1 coat of G.I. Miss You over OPI Funny Bunny!
And are you ready for this? I got a glow in the dark shot. Oh yeah. Go Me (no seriously I usually have issues with this)
I NEED the rest of this collection! You can bet I’ll be ordering the remaining 7 shades which primarily are made up of glow in the dark creme shades that look AMAZING! I had no issues with the 4 I received and really loved them! For a first time trying these out, I am impressed!
Release Date: April 18th at 12pm PST (That’s tomorrow!)
Hope you enjoyed the post! Have you tried Serum No 5? If so I’d love to hear some of your favorites! Drop a comment to let me know!
