For those of you who may be just joining us, TiNS (yes, it’s spelled that way) are a super glittery brand Japanese polish. Their last few collections haven’t included glitter (gasp!) and I skipped them, but they’re back on the wagon with this glitter-tastic spring collection, based on a Parisian theme. There were 6 shades in the collection, but I only got 5 and one is missing in action. So today I have 4 shades to show you. Half the collection is milky pastels loaded with champagne gold-ish metallic glitter, and the other half is just pure glitterbomb in some interesting metallics- not gold or silver, but something else that I can’t quite think of a name for.
First up, the pink, which is called Mademoisielle Cerisier.
This is two coats with no topcoat. Nice application, not streaky at all. It’s not a color I’m personally crazy about, but it’s a very nice medium light pink with champagne microglitter. It looks like silver in the photos, but it’s a really warm silver. Totally smooth finish.
Next, the green, which is called Jeux D’Eau:
A little more interesting to me than the pink, same great application. Reminds me of those sugared mint pastille candies I used to sometimes see around Eastertime.
Peach based shade called Madame Elegance. It sort of clashes with my ghostly pale hands but I can see this working much better on Asian skin tones, which is after all what it’s designed for.
This is one of the glitterbombs, called Champs Elysee. A nice warm chambagne glitter. I didn’t put topcoat on it, but it’s pretty smooth even without it. This is two coats. I probably should have gone for a third.
I’ll dig up the last shade I own, which is called Photogenne, and it’s a really warm-toned silver glitter with irregular flakes.
I’m not quite in the spring mood just yet, but these were a nice step into springy pastels.
