Beauty from the Earth’s The Color of Magic collection

Not a kit, but definitely a themed collection. This was released before I became a regular BFTE customer, and by the time I found out that, yes, these colors had indeed formed a collection, BFTE had already passed into its v2 phase. Customers collaborated with Crystal, the original owner of BFTE, to come up with the shade names. Three of the original shades in this collection - Castle in the Sky, Hocus Pocus, and Poison Brew - are no longer available; though I did manage to get a few jars of Poison Brew when it was available from BFTE v1.
