Orly It's Not Rocket Science

This is an awesome color from the Cosmic FX Collection from Orly. It's claimed to be a multi-dimensional polish that reflects light in different ways. It really does look different depending on the light and the view of the nail. I love it so very much! Here it is shown in three coats!

China Glaze DV8

An original holographic polish from the China Glaze OMG collection. This collection is very awesome, and not easy to find--even on the Internet. Here is a blue holo that has been painted in three coats.

Ulta Jaded

This color caught my eye when I purchased it due to its interesting undertones. It is a shimmer polish with gold undertones and is like no other green I own. Application is good and the color is seen here with three coats of polish.

Ulta Envy

Described as a shimmer polish, this is three coats of a very pretty emerald green. It does have a subtle shimmer finish.

China Glaze Metallic Muse

Please ignore the dent on my finger with this swatch. This is three coats from the China Glaze Krome collection of this color. It has great application and is very opaque--it even works pretty well for Konad application.

OPI Sonic Bloom

This color is one of my oldest polishes in my collection. So old, I don't even have a sticker on it any more. Through powers of deduction, I found the name over the Internet. It's a sheer duo chrome color with reflections of green/gold. My photo shows three coats.

China Glaze Paper Chasing

Here is a green shimmer from the China Glaze Kicks Collection. With three coats, its still not fully opaque. Also to note this green can stain your nails (as many greens can), so beware there may be a bit more clean up after removing the polish.

Soho Bleu

From the Ulta Professional Lacquer line. This is a dusty, denim blue cream. Photo shows three coats of color.

Ulta Into The Limelight

This color is from the Ulta Professional Nail Lacquer line and is a foil polish with decent application (although this picture shows a slight bald spot) and here is shows with three coats.

China Glaze Sky High-Top

This is a nice a nice bright blue from the China Glaze Kicks Collection. Photo shown is three coats.

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

This is from China Glaze's Poolside Collection. You can't see from the photos (maybe because there is not top coat and it dries matte), but this has a great shimmer undertone. The color is very pretty but I had a few issues with it. One: You can see from this photo application is a bit on the sheer side. This is three coats and you can still see some bald spots. Two: It chipped very fast. I was pretty bummed that less than a day of wear and several nails were already chipping. I hate that!

Color Club Factory Girl

I bought this color at a Sally's Beauty Supply on a trip I took to Cancun Mexico. I had so much fun looking at a store I regularly frequent in another country and seeing their different products. My Sally's doesn't sell Color Club, but they do in Mexico. So I purchased a few bottles. Unfortunately the application on this color was not so great. Here you are seeing three coats and still see streaks and bald spots. Also, it chipped pretty fast. But on a more positive note, it is a perfect match to my phone case and works great to patch it up when I drop it!

OPI Blue My Mind

This color looks great in the bottle, but had pretty poor application. This picture shows three coats and you can still see streaks and bald spots in the manicure.

China Glaze Shower Together

From the China Glaze ECollection. Picture shows three coats.

China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le

I love this color. It's a creme from China Glaze that is never represented very well in pictures but is a great mix between purple and blue. Good application and seen here in three coats.

China Glaze Sexy In The City

This is a color from the China Glaze Core Line seen here in three coats.

China Glaze OMG

Here is a swatch of a first-round holographic polish from China Glaze. This is three coats of this amazing opaque holo. It works great for water marbling for dimension and I have had decent Konad experiences with it as well. Unfortunately its a color you can't readily find anymore except on the Internet (if you're lucky).

China Glaze Celtic Sun

This color is a very sheer but very bright neon from China Glaze. This photo swatch isn't really representative of the color in real life, but the right side of the bottle in this picture gives a pretty close idea. As you can see here, this color is sheer. I have painted three coats in this picture and you can clearly see the smile lines on my nail. If you are going to paint with this color, I recommend you paint it over white for a great pop of highlighter yellow!

China Glaze Heli-Yum

This is from the China Glaze collection "Up and Away". Shown here are three coats. It's a creme polish whose brightness doesn't really translate in this picture. It's a punch of bright color.

China Glaze Midnight Mission

This color is from the Vintage Vixen Collection from China Glaze. Shown here are three coats. It's a denim blue color with silver flecks.
