Guess the polish! (reveal)

I thought it might be fun to see whether polish aficionados can guess what polish is on my nails, so I posted the following two images on my facebook page with a promise of revealing it in my review.
Can you guess before you scroll down to see?

If you guessed LA Colors Treasure Chest (#800) you're correct!
I purchased this myself at Dollar Tree. Who knew there was a hidden treasure for such a low cost? I've been wearing it for a few days now and so far the wear is great. I used two coats of polish and then put my base coat on top of it and then Clearly On Top from KBShimmer to help smooth the slightly textured surface. Just look how the gold shimmer sparkles and the small glitter kind of hides and then pops out from behind the shimmer! And that base, purple can never go wrong!

And Nail art!! Stamping with VL043 my custom plate, a clear stamper from Aliexpress, and MDU Gold stamping polish. My stamping job is not perfect, but I'm happy with it.

I hope you enjoyed the fun game - did you guess correctly?

Unable to attend Polish Con NYC 2017?
Never fear! The creators and vendors of the event got together and are creating polishes available for sale to everyone before the Con! How cool is that? The releases are done weekly on Sundays at 8am Central.

This week's launch will feature week 6 polishes from Great Lakes Lacquer and Different Dimension.

Heaven From Hell
Baby blue holographic base loaded with iridescent red to green color shifting glitters and a smattering of red flakies. Could not stop looking at my nails, wore it for a week, didn't want to take it off! So much more sparkly and iridescent than my images show. You need to see this one in pereson!

Blue Skies From Pain
A dark slate blue linear holographic with multichrome shifts of purple, blue, red, and gold. Such a changer, shifter, mysterious one! It was difficult catching the shift with my camera, but this polish looked a different color in varied lighting and angles - like magic!

The formula for both was smooth and easy to apply, both opaque in two coats. I used a coat of base over the glitter to help smooth it up. I hope you've enjoyed the review and photos - grab yours Sunday morning after 8am Central over at http://polishconvention.bigcartel.com/products

Never fear! The creators and vendors of the event got together and are creating polishes available for sale to everyone before the Con! How cool is that? The releases are done weekly on Sundays at 8am Central.

This week's launch will feature week 5 polishes from Cupcake and Glisten & Glow.
Both polishes are inspired by east coast hip hop and will be sold separately but they compliment each other quite well.

Where Brooklyn At?
Bright Pink with purple undertones linear holographic with a dusting of red galaxy microglitters and flashes of purple shimmers. The formula applied evenly; I wore two coats and topcoat.

These two polishes are limited and may sell out during the pre-order, which means they may not be available at Polish Con NYC. If that's not enough of a reason to grab yours quick, the first 80 are available to ship immediately, the rest will be pre-order and ship after the 15th of January.

Links here to my reviews of Week 3 and Week 4 polishes in case you missed those.
