China Glaze - SESAME STREET YOU DO HUE COLLECTION - SWATCHES, REVIEW and GIVEAWAY!

Hello everyone!
Today I have for you swatches and a review of the China Glaze You Do Hue - Sesame Street Collection.
This collection of twelve piece was made in a collaboration with Sesame Street. 

I bought this collection at Polish Pick, check them out, they have amazing low prices. 




Beak On Fleek!
This is a matte yellow, the formula is streaky and it needed 4 coats to reach opacity. 


I Believe In Snuffy
This is a peach shade with a gold shimmer to it, this is three coats.


Trash Can-Do Attitude
A metallic green with gold shimmer. I did three coats. 


Ernie Yours Stripes
This is a bright but sheer orange shade with gold flecks to it. This is three coats. 


Grover It
This is a bright navy blue with blue and holographic glitter. Great formula, this is two coats. 


Fur Real Though
This is a hot pink jelly, it applied well, opaque in three coats. 


Monsterpiece
A raspberry pink scattered holographic. This is one of my favorites from the collection.
Applies evenly and was opaque in two coats. 


Dat Color Dough
This is a clear base packed with ocean blue and silver micro glitter. I applied three coats. 


Living In The Elmo-Ment
This is a red base with holographic glitter. Beautiful shade, opaque in two coats. 


I Count Even...
This is five (5) coats! I Count Even... is a sheer light purple.
This is my least favorite from the collection. 


Free To Be Sesame
Another fantastic shade! A scattered holographic green jelly base. This is two coats. 


Ah Ah Ah-Mazing!
A metallic silvery lilac, this is two coats. 

I kinda like this collection, there are some shades that I wish they had a different finish to them, I'm not a big fan of the metallic polishes that show brush strokes. 
I love the holographic and glitter shades. 

Please leave a comment for a chance to win this collection, tell me your favorite tv show from your childhood. 

The giveaway is international, I'll pick the winner on June 30th. 

That's all for now! 
Thank you.

Carolina.

***Press Sample***

Hello loves!
Today I have for you two new stamping plates from ÜberChic Beauty. These stunning plates have some beautiful, elegant and delicate images.

Secret Garden
"We made a name for ourselves designing some of the best floral images in the nail art industry and putting them into our Collections - but we heard you loud and clear! You asked for it: the floral plate you’ve been dreaming about is here! Introducing: Secret Garden! We crafted some of the most delicate, most refined and petal-perfect designs into a plate made lovingly for our floral-loving fans!

Hot off the press and ready for your nails - our newest Culture plate is full of pattern staples plus some absolutely unique prints you won’t find anywhere else. Need to go bold or refined? This plate has both and is sure to inspire your next nail art adventure!"
