Blush The Facts Were These
a medium olive toned green with an orange to gold shifting shimmer (green at extreme angles) and holo flakes.
no cap

The golden and coppery shift in this is beautiful.
2 coats, with topcoat. formula was fantastic as usual with Blush and again, I have to rave about their brush! It's soft and the perfect shape for my nails. It is unique to the Blush brand, and my favorite indie brush.

DRK Bad Hair Day: Mine is On!
a violet/red magnetic polish with holographic and flakies.
Every bottle of "Bad Hair Day: Mine is On!" will come with a Magic Comb (AKA a magnet)
150 cap

I didn't receive the bar magnet in the blogger kit so I used a pen magnet that I ordered from aliexpress. I've included some photos of what it looks like. I used the flower end for these photos.
2 coats magnetized with pen magnet, with topcoat. formula was good, a bit sheer on first coat.

Ethereal Eat Me Drink Me
a sheer tinted pink base full of the amazing ghost flakes, aqua sparks and a touch of aqua to sapphire chameleon pearl flakes. It’s also black light reactive.
No cap

I chose to wear this in one coat over 2 coats of Revlon Royal (original formula), a blue jelly from long ago. I think it looks beautiful, even better than Essie's legendary SSN.

Girly Bits Pixie Tricks
a cobalt blue jelly with colour shifting flakes in green to blue, pink to gold, and pink to green, plus a sprinkling of holo microglitter.
No cap

The flakes are so delicate and plentiful, the microglitter adds sparkle and the royal blue jelly base is near opaque in two coats. Formula was great!

a blue based light gray filled with glowing blue to purple shimmer, iridescent flakes with the same shift and holo micro flakes.

Is it grey, blue, purple? As the name suggests, it is 'tricksy'! 2 coats, topcoat, great formula.

Lilypad Cancer
a vibrant, almost neon, blue based emerald green scattered holo with iridescent colour shifting flakes and green sheen.
No cap

True Kelly Green in color, and near impossible to get accurate on camera. The hue is about right, but the color is richer and more vibrant in person. 2 coats, topcoat, great formula.

Lollipop Posse Chop, Chop
the color of Eliot's magical glass of whatever-he's-drinking at the moment. Vampy merlot base with turquoise shimmer, various turquoise, blue, and purple micro flakes, and scattered holographic shimmer.
"Chop, Chop. I am literally losing the will to live." -Eliot Waugh, The Magicians
No cap

A juicy like blueberry syrup kind of polish with pops of color, this had me at hello. 2 coats, topcoat, great formula. This would make a good base for the Ethereal polish as well.

Stella Chroma Dragon Queen
inspired by Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen - specifically North-of-The-Wall Dany! This white polish has a generous helping of holo flakies and a bit of linear holo shimmer. Opaque in 2-3 easy coats.
No cap

The formula for this holo is fantastic compared to most other almost white shades, no streaking or clumping. The perfect base for nail art and a smooth sparkly look on its own. 2 coats, topcoat.

Turtle Tootsie My Shield is My Legacy
a medium blue linear holo polish with red shimmer, purple chameleon chrome flakies, periwinkle micro glitter and silver and violet undertones.
