Sephora + Pantone Universe Alchemy of Color Collection

Last time I was in Sephora I saw these and had to pick them up. There are 6 of these colours but only these three were for me. One other was a pink and the other two were too dark for me!

Now OMG are these gorgeous. And the bottles they come in are so nice as well. Thick square glass bottles. They basically look like larger versions of the Le Metier De Beaute mini bottles.

Cradle Pink is a sheer iridescent shimmer top coat. It is not meant to be worn on its own and even with 5 or 6 coats there would still be very very visible nail lines.

Parachute purple is a blue toned purple with blue and green micro shimmer. While people say this one is a dupe for Scrangie from RBL, it is not. It is a more true purple and slightly darker. Though they are similar. As much as I love Scrangie as a blogger, seeing as I wouldnt and wont give one penny of my money to Ji or anything to do with Ji, I will obviously tell you to stick with this one! For comparison swatches, a good side by side comparison can be found HERE. That being said, I did have RBL Scrangie before giving it away and purging myself of RBLs and I must say, I like this one just as much. Not better, but its gorgeous!

Evergreen is a deep mettalic green with intense shimmer. It looks to me to be a dupe or almost dupe of Illamasqua Viridian or Dont Tell Mama from Lippmann. I will have to swatch them and compare in a later post!

In the below posts I have Cradle Pink first over a creme black (Gosh Nero) and then over a pale cream grey (China Glaze Pelican Gray) as the first two swatches on the left. Cradle Pink looks more purple over black than pink!

These polishes retail for $11 ($9 in the USA) and are available in stores at Sephora or online HERE
