I love this polish. The color is so beautiful. Gray with so much holo glitter. I can't help but look at it when I see it. There are some things I don't like about this polish. It chips super easy and is incredibly gritty. It's so gritty that it just seems to absorb topcoat. However, I have found some remedies for these. If you paint a dark gray or black polish on first, then do 1 coat of this, it greatly improves wear time. Also, using a generous coat of Gelous (green cap bottle found at Sally's) before topcoat makes the grit vanish and the shine appear.

It's a nice medium bright yellow. I guess it shines under a black light but haven't tried it.
A really nice cream pale pink. It is very pale and was exactly what I was looking for.
I was looking for a bright yellow, but not neon. This is a nice bright yellow with yellow shimmer.
A lilac color with a hint of silver shimmer. Goes opaque in one coat. I bought it mostly for nail stamping and it does well.
It looks like tin foil on the nail. Covers opaque in one coat. I bought it mostly for nail stamping which it does really well.
Very vibrant safety orange color. Not as shocking on as I thought it would be.
Pretty deep red with shimmer.
Really quite pretty purple holo. It's not super gritty. It does look more holographic in the bottle, but when applied over black its rather stunning.
I love this green. I never thought I would enjoy a green cause I think they look to kiddish, but this one is perfect. It's not too loud but still has little something playful. It's lovely green-yellow color.
This color is wonderful! It does look black most of the time but it's not too harsh. But, the color, when it can be seen, is lovely. Dark olive with gold flecks. I would say that if you want a deep color that is black-like but don't like black for whatever reason, this would be a great substitute.
I would call it the silver version of Ruby Pumps. Very nice silver with silver glitter.
Gun metal. It's really great. I looked at lots of swatches of similar colors but I think this is the best. It's got a mist of silver shimmer and is very opaque. Doesn't look streaky at all.
I am so happy I bought this! I really wanted Moody Blue by China Glaze but it is discontinued and $12+ on ebay. However, I think this the perfect substitute (based on swatches I've seen of Moody Blue). It's a great pastel blue creme color.
I bought it without really knowing what the color was going to be because it was impossible to find a swatch anywhere. I thought it would be more pink because of the name but it's actually a beige/nude color. I do enjoy it and am glad I bought it.
