Blush The Black Pearl
Inspiration: Tahitian Black Pearls
A smokey dark grey nail polish with a shifting pink-orange-gold-green shimmer.
Cap: None

I wore two coats with topcoat, and then also topped it with Blush's Matterial Girl Matte topcoat. The formula was fantastic and super easy to apply with their original fan shaped, super soft brush!

Kathleen & Co Water Goddess
An aqua to blue to purple shimmer in a blue base with colorshifting iridescent flakies
Cap: 200

Such a vibrant blue! The aqua shift is brilliant while the purple sneaks out in dimmer lighting angles. Shown is three thin coats with topcoat.

KBShimmer Seems Fishy
Inspired by: Boesemani Tropical Rainbowfish
Starts with a deep indigo base boldly accented with a shimmer that shifts in a rainbow of hues. In the shade, see pops of red, pink, orange, lime, green, and blue. The golds and greens really shine through in brighter lighting, and the more extreme angles reveal a pop of deep navy. A scattering of holo micro flakes completes this stunning multichrome polish.
Cap: None

If you love multichrome polishes, be sure to get this one! It is simply beautiful. Two coats with topcoat shown here.

KBShimmer Wild Orchid sugar scrub
Inspired by: How Christy imagines a beautifully tropical, floral, aquatic scene would smell!
Starts with a sensual orchid note. Sweet amber is supported by notes of ripe peach and verbena and is completed with a subtle note of wood. This off-white sugar scrub is swirled with aqua and pink.

I enjoyed using this scrub. The floral is soft, not too heady and definitely reminded me of aromas from my trips to Hawaii.

Lollipop Posse The Source of All Magic
Inspired by: The Wellspring, from "The Magicians"
A black jelly base filled with blue to purple to green shifting Aurora shimmer, blue to purple shifting iridescent flakes, and holographic microflakes.
Cap: None

You know that crazy vibrant shade of blue that seems to be lit and glowing? Those flakes are that! Karen has totally nailed this polish. And! When I first saw this polish, it reminded me of the bio-luminescent glow from blooming red algae, like in the photograph from Doug Perrine during a visit to Vaadhoo. Photos do not do this justice.

Nail Hoot Jelectro
Inspired by the black electric jellyfish from Super Mario Bros, this polish sports an invicibly dark base laced with glowing purple shimmer and a strong linear holographic finish.
Cap: None

Zap! This is one Jelectro that you will want to be near! What a dark mysterious and electrifying polish! Shown is two coats with topcoat.
