Lime Crime Les Desserts d'Antoinette Nail Polish Collection

Lime Crime, a well known makeup brand on the internet, has branched out with an awesome nail polish collection.

What Lime Crime has to say about them ...
7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionary delights from Marie Antoinette's table. Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application. Never tested on animals. 3-Free.

I adore Lime Crime packaging. I'm all about the packaging in anything I buy, so I adore getting a purple shipping box in the mail. These polishes are in square, frosted bottles with purple logos on the front. LOVE.


The brush on these is a standard sized flat brush. Not too big, not small. Fans nicely when you paint your nails. 

Lime Crime Crema de Limon is described as a pastel yellow, but it's still very bright. Gorgeous color. This one gave me some problems with application, as most yellows do. Three coats to even it out. Lovely color. I have nothing else like it in my stash.

Lime Crime Lavendairy is a beautiful medium purple that dries to a rubbery finish. Not quite matte but not shiny. Rubbery. Very cool. My favorite of the collection. Purple + rubber finish = awesomesauce. Opaque at two coats.

Lime Crime Milky Ways is an off white french tip color, but for me it's a creamy beige. Interesting addition to the rainbow mix, but a good neutral is always a fantastic addition! This one was a little streaky for me, but three coats got it even and smooth. Lovely.

Lime Crime Once In A Blue Mousse is a fantastic robin's egg blue. Covers nicely, opaque at three coats. Gorgeous color. Great name too! This one did stain my nail beds a bit, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. Just be careful with application! Dries a little darker than the bottle.

Lime Crime Parfait Days is a beautiful medium bubblegum pink that dries slightly lighter than in the bottle. Good formula, two coats for opacity, but may be able to get away with one!

Lime Crime Pastelchio is a bright neon green. It also dries to a rubber finish, like Lavendairy, making it even cooler! This color liked to run. It would leave my topcoat brush with green and when I did a few mani's with it, it liked to run and turn other colors a little green. Just be warned. This color is so fun though, I'm willing to  forgive and forget.

Lime Crime Peaches ♥ Cream is a vivid orange that applies beautifully in two coats. No troubles with this one.

Verdict: I really love these colors and the packaging puts them in top rank in my book. The surprise rubber finish on Lavendairy and Pastelchio was awesome. I'm very happy with these. 

Lime Crime polishes retail for $5.99 each or the entire collection can be purchased at a discounted $39.99 and can be purchased through the Lime Crime website here. Polishes are 3-free and cruelty free.  International shipping available, but you must purchase through here where they retail for £5.00.

EDIT: I'm slowly adding in pictures of the colors on my nails as I'm able to wear them! Hope this helps when picking out some polishes!
