Kandy Colors Kandy Desserts Collection Swatch & Review

The UK indie brand Kandy Colors has just released a Kandy Desserts Collection. The collection consists of 6 dessert inspired creme polishes. I received two to review Avocado Smoothie and Strawberry & Cream.

You can buy the entire collection from Kandy Colors for £29.79 full size (10ml) or £17.00 for minis (5ml). They retail for £5.45 each for the full sized bottles.

First up is Avocado Smoothie.

I have to be honest, this isn't a colour I would normally buy. That being said, this looked really interesting and I think it's something I'd get a lot of use out of in the cooler Autumn months.

It's a muted grey toned green. It's very hard to describe! It also has a silver shimmer running throughout giving it a bit of a pearly shine. It does not have any visible brush strokes.

I used 2 coats for the swatch.

It was almost fully opaque in 1 coat, and you could easily get away with wearing 1. I decided to add a second coat as it deepened the colour.

It has a very easy formula with a great consistency. It's not too thick or too thin. It dries quick and very glossy.

The second colour is Strawberry & Cream.

This is definitely a little more my style. This is a very pale pinky lilac shade with a stunning blue shimmer running through.

In dull lights you can't really see the shimmer, but in the sun it's very visible. It's a really nice contrast with the sweet colour.

I used 2 coats for the swatch.

The first coat was slightly streaky but the second coat covered everything up.

Again it has a very smooth formula, it's slightly thicker than Avocado Smoothie, but still very easy to work with.

It dries quick and with a bit of a dull gloss, so I did apply a topcoat. It definitely isn't necessary.

The collection also includes Pistachio Delight, Vanilla Ice-Cream, Peach Cobbler and Berry Chocolate. Check out Kandy Colors' Instagram for more swatch photos and details!
