Day Dream

Day Dream is described as an aqua polish packed with heavy pink shimmer that shifts to blue and gold and a kiss of holographic micro glitter.

Day Dream is gorgeous! The shimmer was a bit camera shy for me but rest assured it's very apparent in person.

 Day Dream has a wonderful formula.  It applied very smoothly and evenly. I was also pleasantly surprised that the removal was easy.

My swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat.











Wild & Free


Wild & Free is described as a berry pink polish packed with heavy blue shimmer and a kiss of holographic micro glitter.

 Wild & Free absolutely glows. It's packed with sparkle too.  I bet you thought Day Dream would be my favorite because of how much I love all the blue polish, but this one totally stole my heart!

Wild & Free has a wonderful formula.  It applied smoothly and evenly.  It also removed easily.

My swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat.












Wanderer


Wanderer is described as a purple polish packed with heavy gold shimmer that shifts to green and a kiss of holographic micro glitter.

 Wanderer has a wonderful formula! It applied smoothly and evenly.  It also removes easily.

My swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat.












Secret Ingredient


Secret Ingredient is a Special effect topper that combines red/bronze/gold/green shifting UP, sister Aurora pigment, and a linear holographic effect that will transform any manicure into a shifty holographic manicure.

This topper is so cool and beautiful!  I have it shown here over Fancy Gloss Pine, which is a pine green.  After I will have it shown over OPI's Eurso Euro which is a deep blue.

Each swatch is shown with 1 coat of Secret Ingredient over the base creme color.

Check out Jessica's blog for Secret Ingredient shown over black, white, and a dark purple!
