WingDust Collections: Cotton Candy Kisses, He's Just Not That Mint-to You and Zambezi Sunset

Hey guys! Today I (finally) have my last WingDust post for you! It took me longer than I planned to get all the photos edited, because I just could not narrow it down. These last three are just as beautiful as the first few I showed you. WingDust has definitely become one of my favorite new indie brands that I've tried!

First up today is Cotton Candy Kisses. I didn't expect to like this one as much as I did, because I'm not a huge fan of pale pinks. But once I got this one on the nail, I discovered it's much more than that! It's got a gorgeous shimmer and tiny subtle glitters that show in certain angles. This is a perfect soft, girly shade of pink! The following photos show 3 coats of Cotton Candy Kisses with 1 coat of Seche Vite.

Next is He's Just Not That Mint-to You. Cute but long name! This polish is another one that has more than meets the eye. In the bottle, it just looks like minty green and aqua hexes, with some brown ones thrown in. But it turns out some of these are color-shifting and sort of translucent, which is awesome! This reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream!

This polish is packed full of glitter! I decided to try layering it over a couple different colors, white (Milani White on the Spot) and grey (China Glaze Elephant Walk). I did 2 thick coats of HJNTMY over these two base colors. It would look pretty with just one coat, but I wanted to get as full of coverage as possible for this look.

I noticed the brown glitters were more visible in certain lights/angles, which I thought was really cool. :)

Last, this one may be my favorite of ALL the WingDusts I've shown you. There's so much awesome in this polish, I don't even know where to start! Here's Zambezi Sunset.

Zambezi Sunset has an amazing shimmery coral pink base with orange, pink and gold hexes and bars. It really does look like a sunset! This is 2 coats of Zambezi Sunset with Seche Vite topcoat.

Lighting makes a real difference with this polish. Here is a similar angle first in shade, then in sun - you can really see how different it is! I think the base is really the star of this polish - the shimmer is SO incredible!

Here's a close-up of Zambezi Sunset on the nail. It speaks for itself. :)

It looks like Stephanie's Etsy shop is out of stock at the moment, but be sure to bookmark it for future reference, and follow her on Facebook for updates on restock information and announcements. :)
