Hands Off, The Claws Are Out, and Stark Genius

Hey guys! Today I have half the Heros Encounters Collection by Creations by Lynda to share with you. I have briefly reviewed this brand before when Lynda offered to make me a custom. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the custom but these have changed my opinion about her polishes. Check out these superhero inspired polishes after the jump!

Amazon Princess is inspired by Wonder Woman and is a mix of "holographic red hex, matte blue hex, holographic gold hex, matte red squares and matte white stars".  I like this glitter because not only can it represent Wonder Woman, it can also be used as an awesome 4th of July topper!  It's super sparkly with the metallic glitter and fun looking.

I did 2 coats of Amazon Princess over LACC 1981. I didn't have any application issues and the stars came out easily without issues. Dry time was great and didn't give me a hard time :]

Hands off is inspired by Rogue and is a mix of "matte jade green, matte yellow and matte emerald green". To be honest I don't see the difference in the colors of green lmfao but that's just me. This is a simple 2 colored glitter topper that could look great over multiple colors, I'm thinkin' spring!

I did 2 coats of Hands Off over Zoya Louise. I didn't have any application issues. I kind of wish there was a touch more glitter, but it gives you the option of how much glitter you'd like on the nail. No dry time problems either!

Next is the Claws Are Out, inspired by Wolverine! This polish is a mix of "matte blue, neon blue, matte yellow and yellow shimmer and tint". My favorite part of this polish is the yellow shimmer! I'm weak at the knees for blue and yellow combos every time and would of been happy with just that, but I feel the yellow shimmer really ties everything together awesomely!

I did 1 coat of The Claws Are Out over a black creme. Application was easy to work with and gave great glitter coverage in 1 coat. No dry time issues either!

Stark Genius is inspired by Iron Man (one of my favorite superheros!) and is a "mix of red holographic, gold holographic", and red metallic glitter. ALSO can we just take the time to be impressed with my layering name combo. I mean Star Genius over Pepper, Pepper Potts. I'm amazing lmao. Anyways, I really like this polish, it's my favorite of the 4 I think it embodies Iron Man the best, the gold holo dots really help!

I did 2 coats of Stark Genius over Zoya Pepper. I had no issues upon application. Naturally, the larger gold circles are kind of difficult to get out without fishing. Dry time was great. No complaints otherwise :]
