All swatches are two coats unless otherwise stated, with no top coat.
 A dark black cherry with lighter shimmer, looks great in direct light.
 The perfect bubblegum pink creme that applies like a dream.
 A medium gold chunky shimmer, that is super sparkly and reflective.
 A pinkish nude creme, elegant yet simple.
 My favorite pink of the bunch, a bright medium pink creme.
 A muted salmon creme; great for a conservative mani that still has color.
 A coral red creme. Great if you don't want to commit to a loud red mani.
 Chunky dense silver holo glitter in large flower shapes, small rounds and tiny rounds in a clear base. One coat
A sheer barely pink creme that could be used for the perfect french mani.
 A classic cherry red creme.
 Fantastic gold and holographic glitter topper with hex and small glitters throughout. One coat.
 Super dark eggplant with a hint of pink shimmer.
 A dusty greenish blue creme that I'm in love with.
A super white\champagne sparkly shimmer, 3 coats, this sparkles like no other.
Sing You Like A Bee over Goodbye Shoes

This collection as a whole is interesting- there are common creme colors but they are mixed with unique glitter toppers and two shimmer glitters that could be toppers or worn on their own. This all makes for a great combo and there's something for everyone in this collection whether you want dark and vampy or bright and perky or if you are a glitter lover. Personally I'm kind of obsessed with Sing You Like A Bee because it has lots of dimension, especially when layered. These are all available now.
