Soulstice Spa - New Collection!

*Press sample*

Hi guys!  I know, I know, it's been wayyy too long since I've checked in here with new polish eye candy for you to ogle, and for that I am sorry!   What can I say?  Life sometimes barges in and gets so busy that hobbies wind up falling to the wayside temporarily.  But, I do hope to get back into things here, even if it winds up being less frequent than it used to be.

But enough about that, let's get to the awesomeness that is today's post!  I am super excited to share with you, over the course of a few weeks, all the new shades in Soulstice Spa's latest nail polish collection, which consists of 10 shades inspired by and named after Sonoma County towns (where Soulstice Spa is based!).

Today's post will feature the two softest, sheerest shades in the collection: Sonoma and Petaluma.

Sonoma county, which this polish is named for, is internationally known for its sweeping vineyards, historic Missions, soft, fragrant air and award-winning wineries.

Sonoma is a creamy, sheer peachy pink.  Soft, subtle and delicate, but really gorgeous!  I love the shine of this one.  Pictured is 3 coats, and you can still see that it is very sheer but I think that gives this polish a nice clean and refreshing feel.  I think with one more coat you could achieve full opacity, but I really preferred to leave it at three cause I was really digging it at this level of sheerness, so I left it.

Petaluma is a quaint, small town famous for its Butter & Eggs Day.  This polish is a soft buttery yellow inspired by its long history of poultry farming.

As you can see, Petaluma is bright and cheery yellow with a gorgeous pink shimmer.  This is also a sheer sort of shade, and I used 4 very thin coats for the pictured look, but you could probably do 3 thicker ones, I just prefer to do them thinner.  I think it's also important to note that the formula was really easy to work with and wasn't sticky or streaky at all, which I find is sometimes a problem with yellow polishes for some reason.  Overall, I am not usually one to wear yellow very often, but if I had to pick one, this would definitely land among my favorites in that category!

There are 8 more shades in this collection that I will be sharing with you over my next few blog posts and I can't wait 'til you see the rest!

  1. There nice colors but there pretty sheer though. I like the sheer look Sonoma has but I'm not too sure about Petaluma.
