Silly Bee's Chickadees Azúcar, Crema and Leche Swatches & Reviews

Happy Friday! I have the remaining polishes from Silly Bee's Chickadees' new Beverage Cart line to share for today! :) You can find the swatches for the other 2 polishes from this collection, Café and Té, on my post here. :)

Azúcar has a clear base with white satin micro glitter. In this photo I built up Azúcar over 2 coats of Wet n Wild Ebony Hate Chris starting with 1 coat on my index nail, 2 coats on my middle nail and 3 coats on my ring and pinky nail. All nails have no top coat.

Like all the polishes in this collection, you can do many different combinations with them! In this photo I layered 1 coat of Azúcar over 3 coats of Café with no top coat. With no top coat the glitter in this polish does have a gritty look, much like sugar, so you can choose to leave it without a top coat or put one on for a shinier look. Formula was problem free and one coat provides lots of glitter! :)
Azúcar in a "jelly sandwich". 3 coat Café, 1 coat of Azúcar and an additonal coat of Café with no top coat.  
Crema is a soft nude "crelly" with a hint of shimmer. Over bare nail I built up Crema in 1, 2, and 3 coats with no top coat.
Formula is a tad streaky in 1 and 2 coats alone, but evens out nicely in 3 coats. It did dry quickly and I color very soft, work appropriate color on it's own. It makes a great base color for other glitters like Azúcar! ;) In this photo I used 3 coats of Crema and 1 coat of Azúcar with no top coat.  
Leche is a milky white "crelly". Again, in this photo I built the color up on my nails in 1, 2, and 3 coats with no top coat.
Leche was similar to Crema, being a bit streaky in 1 and 2 coats but evening out nicely in 3 coats. I do use thinner coats of polish, so it may be for that reason. Otherwise, the formula was great! In this photo I layered Silly Bee's Chickadees Bananamelon Thump Cocktail (will be featuring this again next week in a post!) over 3 coats of Leche with no top coat.
This photo I added 1 coat of Leche to the above combination. When layered over another glitter with base color, you can see the streakiness doesn't show up like it does over bare nail.
