Missha JPK01 & OPI

This is 2 coats of Missha JPK01.

I have not worn this polish in a long time. But looking at the complexity of it- I can't believe I don't wear it more. Such is the tragedy of a large stash- so many pretties but so little time.

Missha polishes can be purchased here. Also, their BB creams are really awesome.

This is 3 coats of OPI DS Amethyst.

I was very lucky to snag some old DS polishes just as they were getting obscure. I adore the holographic DS polishes. It's a unique holographic finish. Linear but scattered at the same time. They have a softness to them that I can't find replicated in any other polishes.

I've seen this one floating around ebay still. Also, check random salons and family owned nail supply stores- often they harbor the best goodies with low prices.

Emily De Molly Harmony

This is 3 coats of Emily de Molly Harmony.

Harmony is a light grey blue polish with blue, purple, white, and small iridescent glitter.

Emily de Molly Harmony can be bought here. Her items seem to sell out quick so I would hugely recommend following Llarowe on facebook or joining her email updates.

Tins The Universe & Petites Color Fever Periwinkle

This is 1 coat of Tins The Universe over Petites Color Fever Periwinkle. 

I often forget about these two brands of polishes even though they have some of my favorite colors. I need to reach for them more often. I wish Tins were easier to get the US. I've had to jump through hoops and pay so much more than I would for any other brand.

Dare To Wear Enchanted Forest & Real Silver Glitter

I started off with 2 coats of Dare To Wear Enchanted Forest.

I then added 1 coat of the Real Silver Pure Silver Glitter.

I love dark green and sparse glitters. Sometimes this is perfection.

Nubar Jewel

This is 2 coats of Nubar Jewel.

Jewel is a bronze polish with holographic silver glitter in it. The glitter leaves the polish a little gritty but it is just so pretty.

It's been a long time since I've hauled any Nubars. Maybe 2010 or early 2011. So I was so excited to get some of my lemmings from their website.

Chanel Malice

This is 2 coats of Chanel Malice.

Malice is a dark red shimmer polish that is a bit blackened. It is darker on the nail than it looks in the bottle.

China Glaze Avant Garden Part 2

This is 3 coats of Mimosa's Before Mani's.

Mimosa's Before Mani's is a peachy shimmer.

This is 2 coats of Passion For Petals.

Passion For Petals is a hot pink creme polish. This one had a pretty good formula. It seems like the shimmers in this collection are the hit ones.

This is 2 coats of Snap My Dragon.

Snap My Dragon is a hot pink shimmer polish. I love this one. It's not usually a color I go for but it's a nice flashy color for spring and it just looks so hot on.

This is 3 coats of Budding Romance.

Budding Romance is an olive green jelly-creme. I love this ugly-pretty shade.

This is 2 coats of Sunday Funday.

Sunday Funday is a bright blue creme polish. Isn't this eye searingly lovely? What a perfect blue.

This is 2 coats of Fancy Pants.

Fancy Pants is a purple with pink shimmer. It's gorgeous but like the other shimmers in this collection, it was a tad streaky.

Overall, I do love this collection. There was a couple that weren't too exciting to me and the shimmers don't have the best formula. But I do think there are some real winners in this collection that are worth checking out.
