Red Dog Designs (partial) Butterfly Collection Swatch and Review



Good morning!  I am so excited that it is Saturday!  I plan on working outside in my garden all weekend!  Speaking of the gardens, Red Dog Designs just released a new spring collection based on the flowers and butterflies called the Butterfly Garden Collection!  It consists of three glitters and five creams.  Okay, they're not quite creams...the unique thing about these is they are all different finishes-a holo, a flakie, a suede, a texture, and an iridescent!  I have four of the creams to show you today!  I will link some posts at the ends so you can see the others as well. 
     I don't want to repeat myself throughout the post, so I will just say now that application was incredibly consistent.  All four of the polishes I swatched were two easy coats and I had no issues with any of them. They applied really well!  It had been awhile since I bought from Red Dog Designs. I forgot how great her polishes are!

Pentas is a pale pink linear holo creme with a pink shimmer. 

I love the softness of the rose color.  Unlike many holos, that don't look their best in the shade or indoors, this one takes on a fantastic look without the sun!

Zinnia is a pale green creme with blue micro flakies and green/gold shifting micro flakies and a green shimmer.  
I gasped when I put the first coat of Zinnia on.  I love green and blue together and the blue in this just pops!
You can really see the flakies and shimmer in the macro.
Coreopsis is a pale yellow suede finish with gold and silver sparkles and a gold shimmer. 
I love the suede aspect of this polish!  While I only used two coats, you might prefer three as I now see VNL in my pictures. 

Aster is a pale blue creme with blue/ green iridescent glitters, micro holo glitter and a turquoise shimmer. 
I love the shine on the finish of Aster!  This is without top coat and it kind of reminds me of a jelly!  

Parting Thoughts: Application was great with all four of these polishes!  I love Red Dog Designs creativity in creating a different finish for each of these!  My favorite was Zinnia for the amazing iridescence!  I also love the suede look of Coreopsis. 

You really need to go check out the others in the Garden Collection!  While Red Dog Designs does great polish, her specialty is glitters!  They are amazing!  Go check out the others at:
