Product Info...

In ten couture colours, artfully inspired by mood and myth. The Eden Collection boasts a palette of sophisticated shades with show-stopping shine. Add a splash of luminous colour to any look, as each colour effortlessly glides on silky smooth to create bold, subtle or fashionable finishes. Perfectly pretty individually, this imaginative palette of irresistible colours can be paired for modern, color block designs.

Beaute's exclusive formulations combine the fullest and richest coverage, densely pigmented to impart long-lasting lustre. Fastidious of hazardous chemicals and with a cruelty-free objective. Beaute developed this line of professional quality nail varnishes not only to be free of the Toxic Trio, but is 5-Free (do not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate DBP, Camphor, or Formaldehyde Resin) and Vegan friendly.

My Review...

This polish formula is one of the better I've tried. It applies really nice and even, almost effortless. Even the metallic shades -- which, if you've used a metallic, you know brush strokes can be easy to see and hard to make go away-- applied with little to no issues.

They are all opaque in just one coat, but out of habit I did use two coats for swatches. They had a good dry time and dried to a glossy, smooth finish.

These polishes show up in luxury too, each packed in their own mini black Beaute gift box - making the perfect gift, even if it's a gift for yourself.

Out of the five shades I have, Petrichor is my favorite because I love all gray shades. It was really hard to capture the beauty of Petrichor in the photos, as my lighting kind of washed it out. Petrichor is a light gray with a slight satin/shimmer. Beaute describes it as a muted smoke. I'd say it's just really pretty - a neutral light gray that goes with anything. If you don't like white on your nails but want something lighter, try Petrichor.

Enigma is a really pretty shade as well. I'd describe this as a metallic lavender. The more you look at it, the more unique the color unfolds. On the Beaute website, they describe this as a lavender turquoise shimmer. I'm not sure where the turquoise is, but maybe that is the unique undertone I can't really detect.

Curse is a shade that on first glance appears red, but once you really look at it you can see the orange to it. Beaute describes this as a deep bright orange. I describe it as an orange based red. No shimmer to this one; just a bright orange-red shade that will pop on your nails.

Charm is another gorgeous metallic shade. It is a gold but just like with Enigma, the more you look at it the more unique the color unfolds. Beaute describes this as a muted metallic gold. I would also agree with that. It's not an in-your-face bar of gold but instead a softer version of metallic gold.

And then there is Perdu, which is a pretty shade on its own but the one I've only swatched and haven't reached for to actually use on my nails. Beaute describes this as a natural nude; I'd describe it as a pink hued nude creme. Maybe now with fall right around the corner, a shade like Perdu will be better worn but so far it was more of a yawn shade for me. Not very exciting, as I don't wear neutrals all that much. But if you love neutral shades this is one for you because of the application/formula.

Overall, really impressed by this line of polish. Luxury in a bottle!
