Happy Tuesday!! Today I've got some swatches of the upcoming January Duo by I, A.M. Custom Color set to release on the 30th of this month.
This duo is part of a new collection by the creator called "Ashes' Favorites." This new collection will consist of a new duo every month featuring polishes named after one of her favorite singers, and one of her favorite dancers. January's duo will also include a shimmery pink chocolate raspberry butterfly-shaped mini lotion bar :)
So let's get to the polishes!
The first polish in this duo is called "Prima Assoluta," named for Alessandra Ferri - the creator's favorite ballerina :)
Prima Assoluta is a beautiful pink jelly full of rainbow micro flakies and glitters. This polish dried in under five minutes to a lovely shiny finish. I am wearing three coats in the photos above, with the brand's DiamondPRO topcoat.
The second polish is a thermal called "The Rain," named after the song by Calvin Harris:
Outdoors, Warm State
Indoors, Warm State
The rain is a lovely medium blue shade when warm, and a deep, forest green when cold. The polish is packed with ultra chameleon chrome flakies and is holographic! It's really quite a stunner! Opaque in three coats, it also dried in under five minutes to a nice shine. Again, I am wearing a layer of the DiamondPRO topcoat.
The Ups: Prima Assoluta is the perfect ballerina pink polish, and is really lovely and sparkly in the sun. Application was super smooth, too, and I love the fast drying time.
The Rain is one of the most beautiful thermals I've seen! I am personally a fan of blues and greens, so this thermal was pretty much meant for me - especially since it also has chrome flakies and is holographic! I appreciated the smooth application and quick drying time in this polish, as well.
The Downs: I had no issues with these polishes - the formula is solid, application is smooth, and quick dry time. Big two thumbs up from me!
I am very impressed with this brand, and definitely recommend you check them out! Here are some links for you:
