I have the whole collection of the limited edition Palm Beach Jellies collection from Sally Hansen. I have always swatches polishes on my nails, but since I have six polishes, I figured swatching on a nail wheel would be best. The collection includes Water Melon, Vitamin D-Light, Jell-ous?, Sea Through, Ice Tint and Grape Jelly. Since the polishes are jellies, they are sheer tints that give a gel look to the dried nails. They also blend together nicely, which makes a gradient effect super easy to achieve. Although they typically need to be built up, they all have a nice formula. They aren't thick or goopy and apply very evenly. I suggest using somewhat thick coats to achieve the most gel-like finish.
One coat gives a pretty, soft pastel look when applied over a white polish. Jell-ous? and Water Melon look a bit streaky with only one coat, but the other four do not. With one coat, all three pink shades look very similar, especially Jell-ous? and Water Melon.
The colors become much more intense with two coats, and don't look nearly as pastel. Jell-ous? and Water Melon still had a bit of a streaky appearance, but it's not bad.
The colors achieve a nice opacity with three coats. They all give off a nice glossy finish and all have evened out. The three pinks still look quite similar, but Vitamin D-light is warmer than the other two and Jell-ous? is darker than Water Melon.
