Candeo Colors Winter 2012 Collection Review and Giveaway!


Hi everyone! Melinda from Candeo Colors sent me her Winter 2012 Collection to review. There are 6 polishes in this collection: Fallen, Rock Steady, Sweet Sierra, Smores, Snowbird, and Fully Loaded. According to the Candeo Colors website, this collection was inspired to bring some fun to the otherwise dreary season here in the Northeast. I can totally attest to that weather! Boring grey days, clouds, cold... sometimes some snow. Each of these polishes is a fun glitter combo which work best layered over a more pigmented shade. I hope you like the combos that I chose.


All photos are under artificial light without flash.


First let's take a look at Fallen, a white multi-sized glitter in a clear base. It also has fine iridescent glitter and silver holographic micro glitter. I layered it over Barry M Bright Purple. This is one coat with topcoat.



Rock Steady is probably my favorite from this collection. It has a sheer grey base packed full of glitter in blue, gold, purple and silver. I decided to layer it over Zoya Carey, which seems to match the base quite well. This is two coats with topcoat.



Sweet Sierra has a purple tinted, clear base with pink, purple and silver holographic glitter. It is totally girly IMO so I layered it over a pink creme, Zoya Lara. This is two coats with topcoat.



Next is Smores, a clear base with black, white, brown, and silver holographic glitter. This one is probably my second favorite of the collection. I wanted to stick with the "smores" look, so I chose Zoya Jinx as my base polish. This is one coat with topcoat. 



Snowbird has lots of blue glitter with gold holographic glitter in a clear base. I layered it over Barry M Pure Turquoise. This is two coats with topcoat.



Last but not least is Fully Loaded, probably my 3rd favorite. It has black, white, and silver holographic glitter as well as holographic micro glitter. I think this polish is the most versatile from the collection. It would look great layered over just about any color, but I chose Zoya Sooki. This is two coats with topcoat.



Now for the super exciting part!!! Besides my set to review, there is a SECOND SET TO GIVE AWAY!!! One winner will receive the entire collection, all 6 polishes!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

Giveaway is open internationally and closes Monday, January 7th 2013.

Wow, I'm seeing a lot of colours that I'd like to try over at Candeo's site. Hmm...can I go with top 4 choices? Deep space, Rock Steady, Jellybean, Snowbird. But, if I can only choose 1 favourite, maybe Snowbird. Looks great. I think the clear base provides a lot of room for layering and different 'styling'. =) Great great swatches! And thanks for the giveaway!

I all time favorite would still have to be Jellybean! But as I was poking around on her shop site Laman Brisa totally caught my eye, I think I'm in love! Thought it was especially worth a mention since, all of her polishes are awesome (of course) but Laman Brisa is a color I would not think of myself as being "normally" drawn too, but it's now at the tip top of my wishlist! Love it! =) Thanks Trace!
