Good morning lovelies!
Today, I have the 9 piece Alluring Summer 2012 Collection from Anise. This Summer collection consists 9 awesome nail polishes, that offer both work appropriate and playful colors.
There's quite a bit to cover, so let's get to it!
An elegant, light gold shimmer. This was 2 easy coats.
A champagne, peach shimmer. I like the fact that it looks clean and classic. A tad streaky, but nothing over the top. This was 2 coats and has made its way to my top picks!
A champagne foil infused with both silver an bronze micro shimmers. This immediately reminded me of my beloved Rage from Orly and looked quite similar to Milani's Brides Maid. This was 2 coats.
A chartreuse that leans a little more yellow. Application was a bit streaky on the first coat, but evened out after the third coat. See how glossy?! & that's without a top coat! Let's Tiki has also make it onto my top picks.
A muted, turquoise that dries to a creme finish. This was 2 easy coats.
A corn flower blue that leans a tad bit grey. This was completely opaque after 1 coat! Like Let's Tiki and Chill Out, Soft Seduction offers a high gloss finish!
An electric crimson infused with silver veining, that dries to a frost/shimmer finish. Again, you all know how I feel about frosty pinks. Needless to say, this was my least favorite from this collection. Nonetheless, this was 2 easy coats.
A muted, hot pink jelly! I'm a huge fan of jelly finishes, so I was delighted that Ansie, had created not one, but two, jelly finishes(see next nail polish). This was my absolute favorite from the entire collection! This was 2 coats, but like most jellies, 3 coats would be required for complete opacity.
Last, but most certainly not least, a muted magenta rose that also dries to a jelly finish. This was my second favorite from this collection. This was 2 coats.

This collection is now is stores(April)!
If you are in the San Francisco area, this collection is now available at the DSW store.
Anise nail polishes are sold in many salons especially in the Florida area, but are readily available at DSW shoe stores all around the country.
Anise nail polishes retail for $6.00 each, but if your purchase them at DSW, there is always an ongoing promotion of Buy 1 get 1 50% off. Two for the price of one, SCORE! ;)
I love what they stand by:
"We do not mass sell our collections and every color every season “sells out” completely---we do not warehouse our colors. We feel that it is important to always deliver the freshest + latest nail lacquers to our loyal shoppers..once “sold out”…gone."
"We never have and never will use such chemicals. To us, the word “toxic” means only one thing. It is bad for a woman’s health."
As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
