Sation: Candylandia Collection, Part Two

The next two polishes we have for you from Sation's limited edition Candylandia Collection are Peppermint Pedi and Unicorns are Teal (I thought they were always white...) I really, really love Sation polishes — their formulas are great and I don't know what it is about their brushes, but I hardly ever need to do a cleanup with their polishes unless maybe I get the hiccups or something while applying them.
Sation Peppermint Pedi
I don't have any watermelon reds in my collection so I asked Erin if I could review this one. OMG, what a fabulous color! It's so bright and cheerful (just what I need after being beaten down by one snowstorm after another, with another one on the way) and, because it's a crelly, it's oh, so juicy-looking, too. This is two coats of Peppermint Pedi over a base coat, with no top coat at all. Yes, it dries just as shiny as you see here, all on its own.

Next up is Unicorns are Teal, although for the life of me I don't know why they didn't call it Blue Raspberry because it's exactly that color and it's a candy flavor. And it's a jelly! Shiny, shiny, shiny!
Sation Unicorns are Teal
As I was applying it, at first I thought I had gotten some little lint balls on my nails because I was wearing black fleece, so I kept wiping the brush on a tissue until I noticed all the dark flacks in the bottle. D'oh! There aren't a lot, so I can be forgiven for not noticing them at first, but there are enough to add some subtle interest to the color on the nails. Because it's a jelly I did have to use three coats and there was still some visible nail line, so expect to do four coats if you want complete coverage. I think this will be fabulous for some jelly sandwiches.

Pros: great brush and formula, gorgeous colors!

Cons: the formula on Unicorns are Teal was thinner than the other Sations I've used so there was some pooling in the cuticles, but fortunately this wasn't a stainer so it was easy to clean up.

Overall: another winning collection from the people at Sation! I am starting to see random bottles here and there at various Marshall's and TJ Maxx stores but I do wish I could see one of their complete displays somewhere soon. I want so many of their colors!

To keep up with the new Sation collections online you can Like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, or purchase directly from their website or Transdesign. They are also now available at some Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and Winners (Canada) stores.
