This is a terrific forest green shimmer that looks great on my pale neutral tips. The applicator takes a little getting used to, but I like it. Covers in one coat and dries pretty quickly. I did my nails on Wednesday, it is now Saturday, no chips, 5 compliments.
My favorite quick dry top coat, and I have tried many. Quick, glossy, and formaldehyde free.
It may be Aoud Lime, but on me it is Aoud Rose, but unlike Montale's other rose scents this does not get strong or heavy on me. The "lime" aspect is just keeping the rose crisp. Patchouly and I are normally not close friends but, like TF Moss Breches, the patch here is in check (most of the time) and does not have a ton of throw (sometimes my body chemistry does amp this).
A dark green Ruby Pumps (very dark green base with Christmas green sparkle). Can be worn by a fair neutral to coolish. This color is definitely better on my skin (and I think a bit less blue) than NYX Las Vegas. Two coats does the trick. If you have not purchased the ChG sparklers like Ruby Pumps or Drinkin My Blues Away before, you should know that these thicken a bit quicker than other polishes.

When I take off my eye make-up with this at night I do not have to remove remaining smudges the next morning. There is no irritation either.
This stormy deep grey blue shimmer is darker and less of a frosty than the SH Runway storm color and is really quite elegant. 2 coats for coverage, 4 days with no chips. I received 2 compliments on it today at lunch.
This has quite a bit of gold sheen to it. For a fair to medium coolish complexion it is a touch too much for day as an all over powder, but not way off. On me this is cheekbones only unless I am going out for the evening in the summer.
This has iris as a component, but does not scream it. There is plenty of green too. It is a very pretty spring and summer scent. Unlike Apres l'Ondee (which a few people here have compared this to) this does not end up a hyper sweet mess on my skin.
4.5. The color is fabulous. A very wearable midrange teal indoors, and a knockout vivid midrange teal with rainbow outdoors! This looks much better on than in the bottle. The application is a touch tricky, not too little or too much polish on the brush and a light hand helps. Let it dry completely between coats. 2 coats for full coverage. I am on day 4 and only have nominal edgewear.
4.5 - This is a very pretty bright but not obnoxious mid-range pink creme (kind of a subtler Barbie pink) that works well with my fair neutral tips. It is lighter than Essie Fruit Sangria or MAC Steamy and not quite a hot pink. On day 4 of wearing it I have noticed 2 miniscule edge chips that only an obsessive would care about. Anyone looking at my nails would never see them. The reason this gets a 4.5 rather than a 5 is the 3 coats I needed for coverage.
4.5 - I love this deep olive green liner with a very subtle sheen. It works beautifully with my darkish grey blue eyes. It does not scream and it does not look black. I like the application and it stays put. The only thing making this a 4.5 rather than a 5 is that the brush applicator is very slightly wider than I would have liked.
Pinks are tricky on me. They are too warm, too cool, to dull, too bright, too light, or make my fingertips look red. This works great! It's a (neutral family) hot pink, but not an obnoxious one. This is brighter than Essie Fruit Sangria. It would be the midpoint between OPI's That's Hot Pink and You're Such a Kabuki Queen. The application and coverage are pretty good, if you have long nails most will be perfect with 2 coats, a couple may be better with a third coat. It's been 5 days and this is wearing beautifully.

This is slightly deeper and a teensy bit redder than MAC Steamy. It would be the midpoint between OPI's That's Hot Pink and You're Such a Kabuki Queen. If you look closely in good light there is a very faint shimmer, but to anyone looking at your nails you are wearing a creme. The application and coverage are great!

I swapped for this pistachio (inner nut, not icecream) meets May Green. When it arrived I took one look and figured it would never work. I was wrong. It's a strong color, but still wearable and not completetly overwhelming on my fair to medium complexion. I love the application as well. The smoothest creme shadow I have ever tried.
Money Honey is my favorite Dazzleglass. In the tube it is pink glitter in a neutral base. On this is a great pink for those on the coolish side of neutral with fair to medium skin. I love the dimension to the sparkle when applied. Like all of the Dazzleglasses it is sticky, but stays put.
