I was so excited to receive my Priti Summer Day Kit in the mail Friday that I immediately swatched them all and planned to have this post up by Sunday. Unfortunately pictures of two of the polishes were not up to scratch so I had to delay in order to re-swatch. Now that all those shenanigans are taken care of, here goes it!
The polishes came in this adorable little package.
Kim from Priti NYC included a few of their nail polish remover wipes in my package as well!
First up is Fireglow, a bright orange cream that screams "wear me to the beach" to me. This is three coats with no top coat AND on an overcast day- look at how glossy it is! I was very impressed by that. This one would probably look even better on someone with a warmer skin tone and less red undertones then I have. It is a very fun color though, my sister's favorite of the set. She's sporting a Fireglow pedi right now.
Fireglow photo from Allposters.com. The orange polish really captures it, no?
Crazy over-exposed fingers, but the polish and the flower look amazing. It really is that glossy.
I saved my favorite of the collection Hula Girl Rose for last so I could wear it the rest of the day. This polish is Barbie's pink. This photo is not quite color accurate it looks more magenta here then it really is, HGR was so bright it was almost a neon (without the matte finish) that my camera didn't pick up the color exactly. HGR was the only shimmer in the kit, a subtle hot pink shimmer that's more evident in the bottle than on the nail then in the picture, but more visible in person. Know what I mean? I could see the shimmer on my nail but it didn't translate well in the photo. I wore the topcoat for this one to really bring out the shimmer.
There we go. That is more color accurate. I wanted this to be the swatch picture but the up close cropped version was blurry.
I used the Priti NYC base+top coat as a base coat for all three colors and as a topcoat for Hula Girl Rose, which I wore as my mani for the next couple days. The topcoat made HGR even more glossy, and I was chip free until I took a shower and did the dishes, but since water and nail polish are not friends I would not use that as a prime example of the product's longevity.
Overall, I was very happy with the Priti NYC Summer Day Kit. The three polishes are perfect summer colors. I used the wipes in between swatching to save my hands from too much acetone remover and I loved them. They smelled delicious, like citrus and banana and awesome all in one. I was able to remove three coats of polish + base coat from all 10 fingers with one wipe, how's that for efficiency? I wish I had more of them!
The Priti Summer Day Kit retails for $37.50 and can be purchased from Priti NYC's website here. There are several great kits to choose from. Personally, I have my eye on the Summer 2011 Bon Voyage Collection, and the Summer Moody Blues Kit!
EDIT: Priti NYC is currently having a 50% off sale until June 29th!
