Hi guys! It's time for the second part of the Kiko Sugar Mat set =) If you missed the swatches of the first part, just click here ;)
Like the 4 other polishes of the set, they're all shimmer textured polishes but my camera just didn't want to capture the shimmer :(
Light Taupe is a light taupe (ha!), almost grey, with silver and a hint of turquoise/lavender shimmer. Like Apricot, it's a bit sheer but coverage was fairly good after 2 coats.
Teal Green, my favorite of the cold tones, is a teal with teal/blue shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous and so shimmery that my pics are blurry... Stunning with top coat too ^^ Pictures are 2 coats of Teal Green.
Royal Blue is a bright royal blue with blue/turquoise shimmer. I applied 2 coats for the pics below.
Anthracite is a dark grey with silver and a hint of turquoise/lavender shimmer. Pictures are 2 coats of Anthracite.
Here are (on the right) the four cold tones Sugar Mat with 1 coat of Gelous and 2 coats of top coat.

Really love that teal ♥
Below is a comparison between Kiko 457 Royal Blue and Kiko 644 Sea Blue from the last collex.
Index and Ring finger: 457 Royal Blue. Middle finger and Pinky: 644 Sea Blue. Those 2 are pretty close but not dupes! 2 differences: Sea Blue's shimmers are mostly silver and not blue, and Royal Blue is slightly brighter.
Overall, I love this Sugar Mat set!!! The polishes are more sheer than the first Sugar Mats, but 2 coats are enough for full coverage. The only one I'm not sure to wear is Apricot. Nude colors aren't for me.
And yes, I even like Cherry Red :P But my 2 favorites are: Wine and Teal Green ♥ Oh so surprising... haha :P
