Before we get to swatches, let's take a minute to talk about the formula and application of these polishes. Across the board, each applied just beautifully and most were perfectly opaque in just 2 easy coats--there were just 2 or 3 that I added an extra coat for greater depth and I will mention that as we go along. Unless specifically mentioned. the swatches below show just 2 easy coats of each polish, topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. There's a lot going on with these polishes so get ready for the unexpected!
Firnen is described as a "green based polish, with a dash of holo pigment and green gold colour shifting flakes." This is a green I can get behind, just because of those gorgeous flakies!
Glaedr is described as a "bronze/copper based linear holo with added bronze flakes and holo orange micro glitter." Gorgeous metallic that's perfect for the Fall!
Jarnunvosk is described as a "soft gold nude coloured holo filled with gold flakes and a gold shimmer." I used three thin coats for this one as I could not get enough of those flakies. One of my favorites from this collection, I love the contrast between the ivory base and the gold flakies!
Saphira is described as a "stormy blue based linear holo with blue flakes." Another instant fave, I love how this polish looks blue in some lights and steely grey in another!
Shruikan is described as a "black based linear holo with colour shifting flakes." This is not just another black holo--those shifty flakes makes this all but glow from within!
Thorn is described as a "black based linear holo with rose coloured flakes and red sparks." Another one that can't be described as another black holo--just look at those red sparks!
Now for the two exclusives!
The July LE, Waterlily is described as a "holo base with a light purple colour, violet sparks, lavender flakes purple holo microglitter, gold flakes and microglitter." 3 thin coats for full opacity, this is such a complex, intriguing polish!
The Celestial site exclusive is dubbed First, Last and Always and is described as a "dark purple jelly base with a few different added colour shifting flakes." Named in honor of Nicki's parents, it's a truly stunning tribute! So gorgeous with all those flakies!
