A very soft baby pink, Peak Snow is a fairly sheer cream but with two coats I was able to get a mostly opaque and smooth finish.

In the bottle, this one looks like a dark black packed with fine iridescent shimmers. However, once applied on the nails, the shimmers become super subtle and barely noticeable. The formulation is really nice though, two coats for a perfect coverage.
|Haute Tub, two coats with no top coat.|
This is a rich and classic holiday red. The buttery formulation is almost a one-coater but I used two just in case.
|Shall We Chalet?, two coats with no top coat.|
This is a bright tomato red with a super rich and saturated formulation. The pigmentation is excellent as well, I used two coats for the swatches below.
|Altitude Attitude, two coats with no top coat.|
Hands down my favorite shade out of the collection, Apres-Chic is a gorgeous silver foil. The shimmer particles in here are a little larger than that of most foils so the finish is actually very even and non-streaky. Smooth and rich, the polish provides an opaque coverage in two coats.

A soft baby blue, Virgin Snow has a surprisingly nice formulation. The first coat is a tad sheer but a thicker second coat provides an opaque coverage.

This is a lovely collection but the colors are not very original. With that said, my picks are "Shall We Chalet?" and "Apres-Chic"; pigmented and buttery, both shades are beautifully formulated.
