Summer always seems to start horribly late in Vancouver--I distinctly remember one year when it basically rained all June and July and then there were two weeks of sun before it started all over again. Thankfully with the A Different Nail Enamel summer collection, I can still have summer on my fingers and toes no matter what the weather is like outside.
|Clinique Summer in the City|
|Clinique Juiced Up|
|Clinique Grape Ice|
In terms of wear and application, these four are pretty successful. And in terms of colour, they are just plain gorgeous and fantastic summer staples. However, I do have "wrinkles" on some nails due to being smushed by something before they were fully dry. I used A Different Nail Enamel Base and Top Coat, which did a great job of protecting my mani, but seemed to take awfully long to dry. Then again, I'm used to quick-dry top coats such as Seche Vite and butter London's P.D. Quick Topcoat, so maybe someone less biased can tell me if Clinique's top coat is extra slow?
Swatches of the second half of the summer collection are coming up soon!
