I was pretty darn excited to become a part of the BBB swatcher team, but I was even more excited when I received the collection I was to swatch. Feast your eyes on the Southern Hemisphere Collection!
The Southern Hemisphere collection consists of 6 beautiful creams, so let's get to some swatches - and maybe a little nail art in the end ;)
First up: Blue Steel
Blue Steel is a pale blue cream, opaque in 1-2 coats. This was my absolute favorite polish in the collection, it is so beautiful!!
Cotinga is a lovely teal cream, opaque in 1-2 coats. I just love how this one looks mattified - so smooth!!
Next up: Madagascar Sunset
Madagascar Sunset is a pale, creamy tangerine orange, opaque in 1-2 coats. It's almost like a creamsicle orange, it's very yummy!
Here we have: Nautica Rose
Nautica Rose is a straight up dusty rose cream, opaque in 1-2 coats. The first macro was taken in slight shade to show the more dusty-ness of this shade. It's so gorgeous, very Victorian!
Next is: The Veldt
The Veldt a cool, creamy mint green, opaque in 1-2 coats. This is my second favorite in the collection, as it, like Blue Steel, seemed to practically glow when I mattified it. So freakin' beautiful!
And finally we have: You're A Star(ling)
You're A Star(ling) is dusty, gray lavender cream, opaque in 1-2 coats. This is another color reminiscent of Victorian China - in fact I'm almost positive my mom has a China set with teacups covered in flowers of this color.
Overall, this collection gets the biggest of two polished thumbs up from me!! I love that these are all that perfect shade that can be worn year-round, and I loooooove how they all look mattified!! I also really love that they are opaque in 1-2 coats - the fewer the coats, the better. No polish mountain for me, thank you very much.
And of course, I did some nail art with it :D When the collection arrived, they happened to match the pair of LuLaRoe leggings I was wearing, and I was inspired to re-create that design on my nails!
This gorgeous Southern Hemisphere Collection is available now!! Here are the linkages for you:

Polishes were sent to me by the maker in exchange for photography purposes and a review.
