U-Neek Polish: Hearts Collection Swatches & Review

Hola lovelies! Today I have some really beautiful Valentine's Day Polishes from U-Neek Polish's Hearts Collection. Every one of the 4 colors has, you guessed it, heart glitters! Let's get to it...




Be Mine: A pink base wit rose hex, bubble gum hex, pink hearts & holo glitter.


All photos of Be Mine are shown as 3 coats topped with 1 coat of Mega Shine.





This applied so easily, the larger glitters came out of the bottle without a fight and went on to the nail with minimal placement. The hearts lay nice and flat, which is a huge plus! I really love this one! 



Day Dream: A light blue shimmery base with sky blue holo hexes and squares, blue hearts, and dark blue hex glitters.


All photos of Day Dream are shown as 2 coats topped with 1 coat Glitter Food and 1 coat Mega Shine.




This one was a little more difficult to work with due to the shimmer base. It is a bit thicker and drags if you do not let each layer dry before applying the next coat. The shimmery base also makes it a bit more textured.
For the hearts to really show but lay flat on the nail I suggest making sure you get them on the nail the first coat then once your second coat is applied take a brush and dip it in some acetone and lightly swipe it over the hearts to remove the polish on top. Don't apply pressure while doing this or you will end up with bald spots! 



I Love You: A red base with red hex, red square, red hearts and iridescent glitters.


All photos of I Love You are shown as 1 coat over Pure Ice Iced Merlot topped with 1 coat Mega Shine.





Surprisingly, this is my favorite of the bunch. I usually don't prefer reds but I love this one! The squishy look and the iridescent glitters make it gorgeous! The formula with this one is great, again no fishing and minimal placement of the hearts is required. The red base is fairly sheer, which is why I used undies to ensure there was no VNL.



Truly, Madly, Deeply: Purple base with iridescent and holo hexes, purple shreds and matte purple hearts and squares.


All photos of Truly, Madly, Deeply are 1 coat over Sally Hansen Violet Voltage topped with 1 coat Mega Shine.





I decided to layer this one since it has a shimmer to the base, to try and make it a little less textured. The hearts in this one were a tad bit harder to get out of the bottle than the rest of the collection, but not so much that it was a pain. I'm sure that with 2 coats you could wear this without undies, just like with Day Dream. 


I really like this collection! How about you?
