Full swatches and review after the jump!

Blue Raspberry is a bright royal blue with a creme jelly formula. Being a blue, my camera did not want to capture the shade properly so I've had to tweak the colours to make them colour accurate.

Blueberry Tart is a very sweet baby blue creme. It's slightly darker than your normal baby blue and makes a perfect blue for manis that need a sky backdrop!

Bubblegum is a yummy cool pastel mint green creme. I love mints but it's not the shade I have in mind when I think Bubblegum though!

Buttercream is a pale nude creme that is super flattering. It reminds me of my favourite nude Bloom Toni.

Cherry Pie is a super pigmented cherry red creme that is exactly like the name suggests!! Just gorgeous.

Fairy Floss is a pale pastel pink creme. Pretty and pink and it makes me feel like eating fairy floss when I wear it!

Marshmallow is a gorgeous multi-coloured flakie top coat. I LOVE FLAKIES!! It's very similar to Picture Polish Festival.

Here I've layered it over over Fairy Floss, Tutti Frutti, Blue Raspberry and Cherry Pie.

Paradise Punch is a fluorescent coral which is much much brighter in real life!! My camera couldn't catch the searing brightness of the shade unfortunately! This dries to a matte finish.

Tutti Frutti is a fun bright fuschia. My camera just would not capture this properly AT ALL!

Overall: Again I am super impressed with these beautiful Kester Black polishes!! The formula is AMAZING and consistent for all shades which is fantastic. I used 2 coats for the cremes and with Cherry Pie you can get away with just one careful coat because it's that pigmented. Marshmallow applies a little sparse but evenly so I used 3 coats for fuller coverage.

The Sweet Shop collection is great for the warmer months with a nice mix of brights and more muted shades for those less adventurous. My favourites would have to be Fairy Floss (which I'm wearing currently on my toes!), Cherry Pie, Bubblegum and Tutti Frutti.

Details: The Kester Black Sweet Shop collection is available now from the Kester Black online store for $17 each. For more Kester Black swatches, you can check out my review of the Winter Garden collection here.

  1. I've never seen or heard of this brand but wow! These are stunning!

    1. They're an Aussie brand which started last year so it's still getting it's name out there! They are fantastic quality and I can't recommend them enough!

  2. Wow... beautiful colours... I love the glossy finish too.
    I've never heard of this brand before.


    1. It's an Australian brand which is still pretty young and unfortunately it's not available internationally yet which is such a shame!!
