    I have Bikini, and I really want to get Mojito.  I haven’t tried All Tied Up; judging only on the color in the bottle, it looked to be quite unflattering, even on someone with a tan.

       @GenaCunningham I can see why you might think that All Tied Up would look bad but I decided to try it, despite my hesitation, and I love it. I have a sort of olive and tan skin tone and the polish is bright enough to seem daring yet subtle enough to still look good.

  5. I think the pinks are so pretty in this collection! I’m not a fan of any of the other colors though…

    Not sure but I think I already seen swatches of these. Anyways the colors are nice, but I feel like I’ve already seen these before a thousands times in other collections and, of course, EVERY year around spring/summer time. They are just no longer interesting…sigh..
