5 polishes (in this post)

Ethereal: Nyx

Ethereal continues her Greek Mythology theme with the goddess of the night. Nyx features a deep navy jelly base with silver holo flakes. The base color is so dark that it mostly looks black except in bright light. The holo flakes do still flash rainbow, which is lovely. Great jelly formula that builds to opacity in two coats but still lets the rainbow flash through.

2 coats + top coat

Femme Fatale: Stay Sweet

Femme Fatale continues her candy theme with Stay Sweet, a thermal that transitions between yellow when cold and clear when warm and filled with an assortment of matte glitters. Super cute shade, although this shade of yellow isn’t the most flattering on my skin. I also didn’t quite get the full warm clear state, so be aware it does go full colorless at some point.

3 coats + 2 coats of top coat

Great Lakes: Like My…Boomerang

GLL continues her Avatar: The Last Airbender series with another Sokka-inspired polish. Like My…Boomerang features a petrol blue base loaded with silver-rose/green/blue shifting microflake shimmer. The polish is quite sheer and needs to be built up, but the result is super sparkly and shimmery and shifty.

3 coats + top coat

Kathleen & Co. begins a new Geology series with Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend. This polish features a holo base filled with holo pigments, silver holo flakies, silver holo microglitters, and various iridescent flakes. Lots of classic silver holo amped up with a rainbow of iridescent flakes!

Lilypad: O-pearl-escent

Lilypad continues her Magical Images series with O-pearl-escent. This polish features a sheer white base with a rainbow of iridescent flakes and iridescent microglitters. In photos the glitters seem to be showing more, but in person the flakes are much more prominent than the glitters. I really like neutral shades with lots of rainbow iridescence.

3 coats + top coat
