Hello everyone!

Shortly after ANNY released their textured collection Desert Glam, they launched the following collection called Open Air Hippie Festival:
anny open air hippie festivalThis collection consists of six new shades of which four have a subtle silver shimmer. The shimmer isn’t really noticeable once it’s on the nails, but it’s there ๐Ÿ˜€

On to the swatches!

Music in the air, a light lavender purple cream with ultra fine silver shimmer. The formula is on the thin side and quite tricky to work with. It’s also sheer. You can get away with two generous coats but I used three thin here.anny music in the airIndian sun, a bright yellow cream with a tiny bit of silver shimmer hidden in the formula. As with most yellow polishes the application isn’t very easy. This is two coats: anny indian sunCatch fire, really looks coral in the bottle but it dries darker. On my nails it looks more orange than in the bottle. This one has also a slight silver shimmer. The formula is okay. This is two coats:anny catch fireHippie dance, a bright blue based pink with silver shimmer. The formula of this is good and easy to work with. I used two coats here:anny hippie danceDrunken jeans, a dark navy blue cream which is nearly a crelly. The formula is perfect! This is two coats without top coat!anny drunken jeansWalking boots, a moss green cream. This one dries slightly darker than how it looks in the bottle. The formula is as with Drunken Jeans perfect.

ANNY – Desert Glam

ANNY couldn’t left behind with the textured trend that is currently going on. This is the newest collection which consists of eight textured polishes: Desert Glam.To my knowledge this is the first and only collection that ANNY has released in mini size only. Each polish contains 6 ml. The brushes are the same as with the full size polishes, nice and easy to work with.anny desert glam1All swatches are with a base coat and two coats of color. They’re all fully opaque in two coats ๐Ÿ™‚ The formula is great and the application went easy. Also, the removal was not difficult at all. On to the swatches!

First up, four lovely shades with a ‘sandy’ finish:

Pink oasis, a bright pink shade. In real life this it’s brighter than the picture shows.

Perfect color for Spring don’t you think?anny las vegas showgirl - desert glamShooting star, a nude-ish taupe leaning to light grey shade.anny shooting star - desert glamBig performance, a very bright aqua blue shade. So bright! Lovely!anny big performance - desert glam

The other four shades have a little bit extra in their formula, shimmer and glitter. They also have a textured finish. Let’s take a look:

Blue hypnosis
, a bright cobalt blue base with fine purple and blue glitter. anny blue hypnosis - desert glamShe’s amazing, a bright red base which appears to lean to coral thanks to the fine gold glitter particles. This one has fine pink glitter too.
I think this one might me similar to OPI’s Jinx. In the bottle they seem very similar. I’m going to compare the two as soon as I swatched Jinx, which is still laying in my drawer… unopened. [EDIT: check out the comparison here]anny she's amazing - desert glamAfter dinner show, is, to me, a hard to describe shade. First of all, it is more greenish than the picture shows. It’s more leaning to sea foam green as you can see from the bottle shot at the end of this post. This one has silver shimmer and small round silver glitter. The textured finish is rougher comparing to the ones above. Great shade!anny after dinner show - desert glamRock your nails, a silver base with strong purple undertones. It has the same formula as After dinner show, as well as the silver shimmer and round silver glitter. anny rock your nails - desert glam

ANNY – The Night of the Stars

ANNY recently released their newest limited edition collection “The Night of the Stars” which consists of six shades:anny the night of the starsAll swatches have a base coat and two coats of color (no top coat!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Be glamorous, a dusty taupe with lots of fine shimmer. I think I don’t have anything like this in my stash. I love it!anny be glamorous
I’m in heaven, a peachy nude cream.anny i'm in heaven
My way, a chocolate brown cream.anny my way
Love touch, a bright red crelly with orange undertones. LOVE! I could have used a third coat to get full opacity but I don’t mind a slight visible nail line with this shade. anny love touch
Red kiss, a classic red cream. If you love reds -like me- than this one is meant for you. You can never go wrong with a classic red. anny red kiss
Hypnotic nights, a rich vampy aubergine cream. This one dries darker than how it looks in the bottle.anny hypnotic nights

Don’t you just love how some shades go so well together?anny the night of the stars nail art
Overall I LOVE this collection! The formula of all of these is perfect. They only need two coats for opacity and they don’t necessarily need a top coat. They have a beautiful shine by themselves.
I recommend using a base coat to prevent staining (especially with the reds).

What do you think of this collection? Any favorites?
