Lime Crime Pastelchio

Lime Crime has released their first nail polish collection & they've done quite a good job. The packaging is fabulous, full of purple, glitter & unicorns. I love the bottle shape & the brushes are a bit wider than most which I always prefer. The collection, called Les Desserts d'Antoinette, contains a rainbow of pastel shades & an off white.  The formulas were all a little on the thick side & work much better with thick, as opposed to thin coats. Overall a very good first polish offering! Here's what Lime Crime has to say about their polishes.
7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionery delights from Marie Antoinette's table. Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application. Never tested on animals. 3-Free.

Lime Crime Pastelchio is an amazing color but the formula was a bit tricky. It was thick, stringy & didn't self level. I love the color so much that I'm going to add a bit of thinner & try again. Is there such a thing as a neon pastel? Maybe it's a neon chartreuse. I think this is a terrific color for Halloween manicures!

Thanks for reading!
