Indie Swatch and Review - Partial Life's a Beach Collection from Delush Polish

Hello there lovely readers! Today on the blog I have 3 polishes from the Life's a Beach collection by 5-free indie polish maker Delush Polish

I have been following Delush Polish for some time now but I hadn't taken the plunge. However, I have a weak spot for glittery crellies and neons, so when this collection was released it was a no brainer!  I decided to  try some of them out and find out for myself what all the Delush Polish buzz was about!

The Life's a Beach collection was released in Summer 2015 and consists of 7 glittery neon crellies: Cheers Come the Sun, Dazed and Enthused, Hip Hip Vacay, Turn Over a New Reef, Take it Breezy, All Twerk & No Play, and Babe Watch. Today I will be sharing swatches and reviews of the last 3.

Take it Breezy
This is a neon green crellie with pink and white hexagonal glitter in various sizes and pink microglitter. The formula was a tiny bit streaky, but no different from all of the other neon green indie polishes I own. However, it only took me 2 coats to achieve full opacity without the need for an undie (white base coat) and it leveled nicely after I applied a top coat. The glitter payoff was great and it was of no effort. Shown below are 2 coats with glossy or matte top coat.

All Twerk & No Play
This is a blood orange neon crellie with light blue hexagonal glitter and microglitter. I love this color and I have nothing else like it in my collection. The color is a bit more vibrant in real life and it reminds me of a ripe papaya! The formula was very nice, it self-leveled beautifully, and it did not require an undie. The glitter payoff was also nice, with no effort needed. Shown below are 2 coats with glossy or matte top coat.

Babe Watch
Ok, I saved the best for last! This a neon pink crellie with neon blue circular and hexagonal glitter in various sizes. Crellies are usually a bit sheer, but this color is so vibrant and intense that you can easily get away with applying just 1 coat and without an undie! The formula was very nice, it self-leveled nicely and I did not have the streakiness that is typical of neon polishes. Also, the glitter payoff was nice but the color is so rich that it covered the glitter a bit. Shown below are 2 coats with glossy or matte top coat.

Overall, I love these 3 polishes from the Life's a Beach collection. They are a nice twist on the neon craze that are popping all over this summer and I love the glitter combos. Also, they applied nicely despite being neons!

Did you try any of the polishes in this collection? What are your thoughts?  Feel free to comment below and as always, thanks for reading!
