51F5C2C8-6B5F-4657-898A-B968F0ACBADD

“All My Secrets” has a greyed out turquoise crelly base with blue shimmers and a touch of holographic effect. This polish was opaque in two coats of polish for me, and the formula was super creamy and easy to apply. I love how the blue shimmers make this shade look like it’s glowing!

The blue shimmer in this shade is absolutely beautiful outdoors in direct sunlight.

Colors by Llarowe is back with another shade inspired by Bruno Mars! This polish will be $11.00 and has no cap.

7A0D8F44-1651-42C5-BEED-A0003847EFC8

“Grenade” is a jet black linear holographic with galaxy holographic. This polish had a great formula and was opaque in two coats of polish.

0B5BEAB5-ED77-446C-9C73-86F4F7000B74

The holographic effect is outstanding in the sun!

A2FB9795-0E89-4D0C-BAC5-C824D6C3F5D1

Heather’s Hues was inspired by Peridot from Steven Universe. This shade will be $12.50 and has no cap.

97765C2B-08F9-48CE-A62E-F96BD3F7B5FF

“H-2-Oh My Gosh!” is a deep green with peridot metallic flakes; various green holographic; holographic microflakes; and a mix of lime, blue, and gold iridescent and multichrome flakes. This shade was opaque in two coats of polish for me.

Outdoors in direct sunlight the flakies are more noticeable and you can see the soft holographic effect come to life.

Lilypad Lacquer is continuing to go through the Zodiac signs. Their latest shade will be $15.00 with no cap.

“Libra” is a dusty lavender pastel holographic with blue to pink shifting shimmer. The blue shimmer is beautiful against the lavender base. This shade was opaque in 2-3 coats of polish.

Supernatural Lacquer continued their theme, Firefly, with a beautiful magnetic. This polish will be $12.00 without a magnet, or $13.00 with a magnet. This polish has no cap.

9998EEB0-E362-4F3D-A90B-9D5AA10A6736

“Captain Tightpants” has a midnight blue base with an antiqued copper magnet effect, plus orange/green/gold and bright silver flakes with a touch of scattered holographic. To create this slim magnetic effect, I used a polish magnet over the second coat of polish and used the magnet again over top coat. I find that it’s easiest to use the magnet one nail at a time so the polish doesn’t dry before you have a chance to hold the magnet over it. I recommend holding the magnet over your nail for 20-30 seconds.

Here’s a shot of this shade outdoors under direct sunlight.

4D6798D0-3A52-438F-B539-638AB28FB973

I love the bright pop of coral you get when you take this polish into the sun!
