Sea Lore Spring Seas Collection; Swatches & Review Plus Nail Art ;)

Evening loves,
Today is an extra good day, not only do I now have a new watermark butttt I now have my own domain! Meaning I can now be found at www.tipsandtopcoat.com :O I really am so pleased and happy, even though setting the domain has taken all day -.- I feel like this is a huge step in my little blogging world :)
 
First to showcase my new watermark is Sea Lore Polish - Spring Seas Collection.
Please note this is very picture heavy, but totally worth it!! ;)
Spring Seas is Sea Lore's Spring/Summer 2013 collection, it contains 5 beautiful polishes all with resemblance to sea life :)
 
I wanted to involve art with these, my first initial thought was an accent containing the sea creatures to each name. I have seen others do this so decided to go different. I have wanted to do the Sea Lore logo forever and now was a perfect time. I added a little fishy which is lightly coloured with 4 of Sea Lore polishes - the bubbles are of the last one.
I will name them below.
 
The face of the fishy is Dancing Discus,
Body/scales is Springing Seahorse
Lips of fishy & 'fins' are Leaping Lyretail
Tail is Popping Parrotfish
Bubbles are Jumping Jellyfish

 
I chose to do a simple design to stand the collection out more :)
 
Onto the swatches.
First up we have Dancing Discus - a sheer soft peach with the most amazing blue violet glow. She is exackly as Sea Lore describes. With mini golden glitters along with irridescent hexes and squares. She is gorgeous! I chose to wear her over W7 black & my gosh did she pop! Shown is 2 coats over black with one coat of Seche.
 



Up next we have Jumping Jellyfish - described as cerulean blue jelly with tiny light blue glitters and blue circle glitters. She is a serious beauty! I again decided to layer her, I believe maybe 2-3 coats could give you full opacity, this time I wanted to be different. Shown is 2 coats over Barry M Blueberry Icecream & one coat of Seche.
 



Popping Parrotfish is one of my favourites in this collection!! A gorgeous light mint base with a green shimmer ,bursting with rainbow glitters in various sizes & shapes. Omgosh, she is perfect!! Shown is 2 coats with one coat of Seche.
 






 
 


Springing Seahorse is a irridescent purple based polish, containing various sizes and shaped glitters of different shades of purple ;) She is delicious!
Shown is 2 coats over Face Of Australia Boys 'N' Berries with one coat of Seche.
 

 

Last up we have Leaping Lyretail, omgosh of all things jelly.. she is it! A hot pink jelly base with white squares, yellow & pink hexes & hot pink circle glitters. I literally fell in love with her! She reminds me of fruit salad? Yum!
Shown is 2 coats with one coat of Seche.
 



Squishy Squish!!
Overall I love this collection!! I can't fault it at all, they all applied great no issues. I used a base coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A-Peel, so removal was easy.
I really adore these & love the different varieties. Would I recommend them? YES! For sure.
 
They can be bought in either mini (7.5ml) or full size (15ml) - mini's are priced at $5.50 and full size at $10.00.
They can be bought via Sea Lore website HERE.
 
I hope you enjoy the art & the swatches.
Let me know your thoughts below :)
