This collection has six softer shades with creme finishes - some semisheer - and six darker shades with a variety of finishes: glass fleck, metallic shimmer…even some duochromes. There are polish collections that try to balance finishes, opacity, color shades, what have you. This is perhaps a more extreme mixture of softer/subtler and bolder polishes. I like the mixture!! I like Reveal quite a lot - a seemingly soft peach creme with the pink and blue flashes is one of my “gotta be office appropriate” favorites!
There are a few polishes in this collection that seem to have similar releases from several companies during the same year as this collection's initial release. That year, purple-taupe seemed to be The Bandwagon Upon Which To Jump. Several companies released their own versions of Particulere/Channelesque/Give Me A Hint. I think that that was the Big Unique Dupe...until Chanel released Peridot, and we had half a dozen of those all along the pricepoint scale.
I was immediately interested in Ulterior Motive, Alias, and Revealed. I picked up Alter Ego and Masquerading during my second pass through the collection's offerings. Total Mystery is interesting looking, but I don't know if I'd wear it as a manicure shade very often...I wonder if it could be used as a stamping polish? Wouldn't that look amazing against black or charcoal or even a vampy purple or red?
