Julie G Cruise Collection Live Application and Review

Hey loves :)  It's time for another collection review.  I've had these most of these little ladies in my collection since they first released, but I picked up the rest the other day with the intention of doing a review for you. I'm sorry I didn't have these up for you before now, but I've seen these be restocked at my Rite Aid and that means that you might have the chance at finding these.  Originally I assumed this would be a quick promotion that would only be in the stores for a few weeks and then sayonara.  However, since they've been restocked at least one time I'm going to review them after all- in the the hopes that this will help any of you that have been on the fence over which(if any) colors to choose.  Here is the live application video and review:

Let's get to some photos:
This super bright sunny yellow cream is perfect in two coats, almost one!  Sorry for the little bubble I got on one nail- but truly this polish is fabulous.  For a yellow polish lovers- I fully recommend this little lady!

Next, let's look at the perfect-for-Summer red/coral in the collection.  This one's a perfect two-coater and really provides a roundness to the collection.

The orange/peach shade in the collection is called Old San Juan and it's formula is a little thin, kind of like the blue you'll see later on.  It evens out nicely with the second coat however.  You know I don't love orange polish, but this one is definitely a winner!

This beautiful pink/purple hybrid is Rio de Janiero and it has a fabulous formula.  This was nearly a one-coater and it applied so effortlessly.  I REALLY underestimated this polish.  Perfection!

You'll notice by the length of my nails I didn't swatch these last two in the same batch as the first four I showed you.

This lovely sea green with blue shimmer is Tahiti.  It's a perfect two-coater and the shade is divine!  The blue shimmer really makes this one something special.  I adore all of these polishes so it's hard to pick favorites, but this is definitely one of them.

Lastly, I have the gorgeous Santorini.  This one is a tiny bit patchy- as you can see, even at two coats it's not absolutely opaque, but it's definitely workable.  The color just blows me away so I can say this is another one of my favorites.

So those 6 polishes make up the fabulous Cruise collection.  It can't be a mystery that I love this collection.  I know the bottles are a little smaller than say China Glaze and OPI, but I think these are definitely worth the price tag and especially when Rite Aid puts them on sale once in a while- I'd say snag a bunch!  I hope this review helped you out and let me know what your favorites are and if you pick any of these up.  As always, see you back tomorrow.
