3. Rimmel Play Fast Hit That (2)
4. P2 Elegant (2) [such a very subtle shimmer]
5. Maybelline Colorama Lilac Freeze (3)
6. Zoya Harley (2) [shimmer in this seems to almost sit on top of the base color]
7. Collection 2000 101 (3)
8. Essence Fairytale Welcome to Wonderland (3) [almost a foil finish]
9. Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid (2)
10. Rescue Beauty Lounge Insouciant (2)
11. Maybelline Express Finish Plum Aluminum (2)
