It's My Party is a hot pink jelly with silver micro shimmer. I thought the end of photographing neons came with the turn of the season, apparently not! I used this polish as undies in a post last week, see it topped with a black & white glitter here!
I'm honestly not really one for bright pinks (or bright colours at all), though I did enjoy wearing this topped with the black & white glitter. It was certainly an attention-grabber in December!
The formula on this was easy to work with, though I still had a little bit of VNL with 4 thin coats. It dried to a slightly satiny finish, so swatches are 4 thin coats with one coat of Seche Vite. Photo below is the most colour-accurate.
Never Too Old is described as a black matte polish with silver and fuschia shimmer, though the gorgeous shimmer looks more silver/blue/purple to me.
I think that this is a very versatile polish, the shimmer is so pretty and makes it much more interesting than a plain black creme! Wouldn't this be lovely as a base for galaxy nails?
I love the satin finish of this polish, the matte black with a hint of shimmer looks so classy! Photos are without top coat to show the natural finish of the polish, though the shimmer comes out even more with a glossy top coat.
I used three coats on all fingers except the index, for which I used two. It appeared fully opaque in two coats, though I'd recommend a third to add depth to the finish. The photo below shows the difference in direct lighting between two and three coats. (L-R: 3 coats, 3 coats, 2 coats.)
Saving the best for last, this is Wrapping, Ribbons, Bows. It is a purple jelly polish packed with tiny glowing purple glitters. When I tell people my favourite colour is purple, THIS is what I'm talking about!
So much depth and richness to this polish!! It became one of my all-time favourite purple polishes before I had even painted on a second coat. Simply stunning!
If memory serves, this is three thin coats (I did so much swatching over the weekend, I really should start taking notes!) Formula was easy like the others, but one coat of Seche Vite left it a little grainy (as in the photos). Just barely. Probably wouldn't bother most people, but I'd use two coats of top coat for a perfect glass-smooth finish.
