I love this shade of blue! It's saturated without being dark navy or a vivid bright.

I like this color, but I wish the formula was just a little bit better. It doesn’t self-level nearly as well as it could, with some visible “furrows” on some of my nails in this manicure.

Medium-depth vivid colors with a creme finish. All are totally opaque, and most of them are a bit stubborn to remove. Most of the shades have near-dupes from other lines and collections, but one - Jace - is relatively unique. There are other polishes somewhat similar to Jace, I don’t have (nor have I found) any that are the exact same shade. These are extremely pigmented, and work very well for nail art - either stamping or freehand.

Very similar to TKB Trading’s Pearl Green, but with far better application and adhesion (which makes sense, since TKB’s Pearl colors are unblended micas.) The faint hints of coral that are visible in the pot don’t show up when applied dry, but they did seem to come out of hiding when I foiled this color.

Black under-layer, and a mix of navy and deep turquoise as the primary visible color. The shade is opaque enough that I think it will work well on any skintone without any lessened color payoff. I like this on me best as a liner or an accent shade, but it’s saturated enough that I can’t use it as an all-over shade or it will visually take over my entire face.

This isn’t totally opaque…sort of. The finishing shimmer has a few spots of lesser coverage, but the base color is

This is definitely a colorant. It works halfway-decent when applied wet, but just looks lousy when I try to apply it over primer. I’ve seen this used in nail polishes, and it’s a deep evergreen that looks lovely. But it definitely should not be used on its own as an eyeshadow. (It’s also an intense colorant, so it does stain more than a bit.)

CND’s Vinylux Unlocked (268)

CND’s Vinylux Unlocked (268)

This is my absolute favorite from the Nude collection. It’s defnitely cooler, almost more of a nearly-neutral purple than a brown. It reminds me of Field Fox, another surprising neutral polish from CND. This color sold out of a lot of online outlets fairly quickly, and it took a month or two until stock was available again. It evens out very nicely, and provides a slight “brightening” without being a white or off-white shade.
