Swatch Sunday: Ruby Wing Sweet Cream and Chocolate Mousse!

Good morning! I am doing back to back swatch days for you this weekend. Tomorrow starts a big 2 week nail art challenge so I wanted to get all of these swatches up before hand! Today's post features 2 Ruby Wing polishes from the new Cupcakes & Champagne collection. They are scented and solar color changing polishes!

A few things about these polishes before the pictures. Let me tell you, these polishes REALLY are scented. So if you get headaches from scented nail polish, these are not for you. Also, the solar change is really great so I've shown them without base colors so you could see the change. You can certainly layer these over any base color.

Sweet Cream is a pretty pink shimmer when you are indoors, and changes to a gorgeous, deep, eggplant purple/blue with red shimmer out in the sun! I'm showing 2 coats below without top coat. No application issues to report!

Now for Chocolate Mousse. I'm showing 2 coats with 2 coats of gel top coat below. The formula on this was tricky because its so thick to hold those iridescent flakes. The flakes don't lie completely flat so that's why I tried 2 coats of gel top coat. Unfortunately, that made them even thicker and uneven. I suggest layering one coat over a base color and skip the top coat. The solar change is really great on this one as well! Indoors, it's a clear base with iridescent flakes. Outdoors, it changes to a dark purple with flakes.

What do you think of these new Ruby Wing polishes? I'm not a big fan of scented polish, it tends to give me a headache over time. However, I loved the solar color change! It was such a big difference in color and these were the first solar change polishes I've tried. 

You can purchase these on the Ruby Wing website for $10 each. They also have a 4 pack of minis for $12.95!
