The Hungry Asian Spring 2014 ♥ Swatches and Review

Press Sample

The Hungry Asian Spring 2014

I am so excited to share the rest of The Hungry Asian's Spring 2014 collection with you today!  This collection sold out once already, but Kae recently restocked and as of this post, everything should be available again!

The Hungry Asian Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen has a milky peach base and is filled with red bar glitter, large matte marigold hex glitter, small red and purple hex glitter and round mint glitter.  That’s a lot of glitter in one polish!  This polish applied easily and only needed two coats for the coverage you see above.

The Hungry Asian Lavender Cream

I have already shown you Lavender Cream, because I love it so much!  It is a gorgeous milky lilac jelly filled with two sizes of glitter.  Most of the glitter is pastel, but there are some bright “radiant orchid” glitters in there too!  I love the way the darker glitter pops against the pastel background!  This polish also applied easily and only needed two coats for the coverage you see above.

The Hungry Asian Smooth Criminail

Smooth Criminail is a milky blue cream with hidden shimmer that is filled with small red and light blue glitter and purple, blue and green hex glitter.  This one did have a thinner texture than Peachy Keen and Lavender Cream, so it required three coats.  The shimmer made the extra coat worth it!

The Hungry Asian Carpe Dayum (over Barielle Uptown Girl)

Carpe Dayum is a glitter topper that is comprised of red and pink holographic shards and blue iridescent microglitter in a clear base.  In the bottle I wasn’t in love with it, but one coat layered over Barielle Uptown Girl?  I can see that this polish is awesome! 

The Hungry Asian Starstruck (over Barielle My City Apartment)

Starstruck is a dazzling glitter topper!  It is comprised of round light pink metallic glitter and fine holographic bar glitter in a clear base.  I have never really been into bar glitter, but I have fallen in love with this kind!  It’s so delicate but the holographic flash is amazing!  Here I wore one coat over Barielle My City Apartment.
I am hard pressed to pick a favorite from The Hungry Asian’s Spring Collection!  They are all awesome.  IF I had to narrow my choices down to just two, they would be Lavender Cream and Starstruck.  But who am I kidding, really… I would buy them all!
