Smitten Polish Copper Canyon, Nerds Redux, Pink Goes Good With Green and Sprites of Spring Reviews & Swatches

Sorry for the late post >_< I used a little bit different camera settings with these photos than normal. I'm trying to slowly, but surely convert over to my new camera. I just haven't got there yet or have time to sit down and fiddle with settings. :P Alright enough blabbing from me because you need to see these beautiful polishes from Smitten Polish!

 Copper Canyon has a green-tealish jelly base with copper shimmer and medium and smaller sized copper and rose color hex glitter. All nails are 3 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Being a newer green lover, I didn't think I would love this color as much as I do! :P The copper shimmer and uniquer base color work so well together, it's insane. Then throw in more copper and rose colored glitter and my mind just explodes! Hahah Formula was great like all my Smitten Polishes have been: quick dry time, no fishing required and with Copper Canyon it dried pretty smooth with no top coat. :)
Nerds Redux is a reformulation of an older shade Smitten Polish used to make called Nerds! It has fuchsia hex glitter and light blue holo hex glitter in a purple creme base. I used 3 coats with a top coat of Gelous and Seche Vite. 
 I was thrilled to see Noelie, the maker of Smitten Polish, bring back a polish similar to the original Nerds!. I never got a chance to snag Nerds! before it was discontinued, so I can't compare the two but I love this one and it shall fill the void. ;) The purple base and glitter combination make me want to got buy a box of Nerds candy and shove the whole thing in my mouth and then inevitably choke on at least one piece because that's what always happens when you eat Nerds, right? :P Formula was again awesome with one small downfall; it is a top coat eater. With 1 coat of both Gelous (applause all around I finally bought a bottle) and Seche Vite my nails were not super smooth to the touch, but bearable. It may help to double up on a top coat for Nerds Redux or you could just do what I did and use the thought that's it's similar to gluing sparkly Nerds Candy to your nails, so you can cope. ;)
 Pink Goes Good With Green has a various sizes of pink, green and purple glitter in a milky green base. All nails are 3 coats with a top coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.
When I put this on, I'm pretty sure my face looked like the Surprised Chin meme "Pink really does go good with green!" *mind blown* The colored base does a perfect job of not overpowering the other glitters and well, I think the first part of this paragraph sums up my thoughts on it. ;) Formula was another winner, with no problems to report!
Sprites of Spring is a deep teal "crelly" with pink/purple shimmer. I used 3 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
If you are in the market for a deeper, more flashy Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily this is it! And Noelie is even releasing a lighter version soon! *swoon* The shimmer in Sprites of Spring is very strong and even in low light you can notice it pretty well. Once again great formula, but it does have a bit of matte-ish finish when dry. If you want a higher shine one coat of top coat will do the trick! :)
