Morgan Taylor Hello Pretty Collection Swatches, Review, Nail Art

Today I have swatches of the Morgan Taylor Hello Pretty Collection. These are my first ever Morgan Taylor polishes and they definitely didn't disappoint. This is a random story, but I am very very picky with nail polish bottles and I won't buy any nail polish from a brand if I don't like the bottles. I don't like the Morgan Taylor bottles. They're so big and chunky and take up so much unnecessary space! I couldn't resist these minis though..

The two reasons I picked up these is 1. it's a collection about Japan and Tokyo and I LOVE Tokyo. 2. @nailtalk on Instagram posted the most beautiful swatches of these.

Like always, check out my YouTube or LIVE SWATCHES!!

First up is Manga-round With Me.

This is the only one where I really really really struggled to capture it accurately. I failed. I have another photo below which is the same polish, but completely different. Imagine these colours mushed together.

It's a very very neon coral. And it's stunning. I actually wanted to swatch these polishes about a week ago and I started off with this one and didn't take it off.... lol

Anyway! This is a stunning warm pink coral neon. I used 2 coats for the swatch. The first coat is a little streaky and you can see a visible nail line, but the second coat completely covers it up. It dries with a matte finish so I would recommend a top coat.

Next up is Pop-arazzi Pose.

This is a much darker cooler toned neon pink. It's almost red.

I used 2 coats for the swatch, The first coat is a little sheer but the second coat covers everything up completely as well as darken the colour.

This dries so incredibly quick that when I apply the polish to my ring finger my index finger is almost fully dry. You'll be able to see this during my live swatches.

Again this dries to a matte finish so I would recommend a topcoat.

Next up is Look At You, Pink-achu.

I was least excited about this one. In the bottle it looked like every other pale pink that exists.. I was totally wrong.

This is so incredibly bright it's like a bleached neon effect. And also the name is super cute.

This had a fantastic formula. It was also fully opaque on 1 coat with careful application. There was still a bit of unevenness so I did need a second coat.

It dries to a matte finish so I would recommend a topcoat.

The last polish is the whole reason I wanted the set... this is Tokyo รก Go Go. Looooook at how pretty!!

This is a warm toned almost fuchsia purple. And best of all.. this is ONE coat.

Again it dries to a matte finish so I would recommend a topcoat!

Those are the swatches of the Candy Cuties. I loved all 4 of these colours and they all had a great formula. I think what made the application so easy is that even these minis came with a flat wide brush rather than a tiny skinny brush which is much harder to work with.

Now onto the nail art!

I created this aztec Hawaiian design using the 4 minis for the gradient!

I have a tutorial on how to create this design, both the gradient palm trees and the aztec design on my youtube channel so make sure to check it out!
