Zoya Dove and Candeo Colors Rittenhouse


Hello!  Today I have my first Candeo Colors polish!!  I was lucky enough to get a few at Melinda's last opening of her shop on Etsy,   She also updates her Facebook with opens and pictures of colors, HERE
I used Zoya Dove as my base.  I used 2 coats and no top coat for the pictures.  I love this color!  So simply and creamy!!

Then used 1 coat of Rittenhouse over Dove!  I love the slighty pink/grey shimmer base!  There are tiny little holographic glitters throughout.  It also contains, holographic green and fuchsia hexagons and large silver holo hexagons!  It's so sparkly in person!! I love it!  Bling-tastic!

These labels are adorable! With that little chameleon? I <3 him! Here is a little more about Candeo and a description of Rittenhouse:
Candeo - A latin word meaning to shine, glow or sparkle. Welcome to Candeo Colors! All polishes are hand mixed by me using existing colors, lacquer base and a myriad of loose glitters and pigments. I love all colors but I'm really drawn to jewel tones and holographic glitters. I take pride in my work and want you to love every color. I do not skimp on the glitter so you definitely get your money's worth. Check back often since this is a new venture and I will be adding colors frequently. PS- The chameleon was added to our logo because of their ability to change their naturally bright colors. Plus they are just plain awesome!

Rittenhouse - Back from the dead!! New and improved!
Part of the Philadelphia Collection -
You don't have to be from the City of Brotherly love to appreciate this collection. Every city has its own version of these areas.  Inspired by the luxury high rise apartment buildings and natural beauty of Rittenhouse Sqaure. Our Rittenhouse is subtle and cool with a little bit of sparkle. A bit of understated elegance with a little kick.  Rittenhouse has a semi-sheer silvery charcoal base and is loaded with fine gunmetal and silver holographic, medium gunmetal, lime and fuchsia and large silver holographic hex glitter. The holo effect is more noticeable in person.
 Definitely agree - holo is SO much better in person ;-)


Candeo Colors sell for $8.00 each.  She has been selling very quickly, so it does help to watch her Facebook for opening information!  :-)

Have a wonderful day!

Much Love,


  1. Gorgeous! I have been lemming Dove but can't seem to find it anywhere!

  2. Love this!! The combination is fab! Love Candeo Colors :)

  3. What a pretty combo! Every time I think I have enough glitters I see one I just have to have.
