Originally I was only interested in two of the polishes from this collection. Then I thought (as they began to appear on the shelves of “we only ever have things out four months after whenever these were supposed to release” drugstores near me) “Well, maybe a few more.” And some backups of one of the first colors that I got, because it looked a lot better than I thought it would.
Thus do these things spiral out of control. Every. Single. Time.
This was broken up into three groups, a bit like the Spring 2014 Runway Trends was. Each had their own distinct palette and theme. I stayed completely away from the Glam Sequins polishes because of personal preference - I've never been a big fan of glitter polishes - but got all but two of the other shades.

Dark Knight and Ever Green are similar to two of the shades that have been recently added to the regular CSM lineup (Dark Huemor and On Pines and Needles, respectively) but they're not quite exact dupes. Dark Knight is just barely brighter; and Ever Green leans slightly warmer than On Pines and Needles.
