Nail wheel

1. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Lime Creme [not a creme, though it is a very subtle shimmer]
2. Maybelline Express Finish Yellow Rays
3. OPI A Little Less Conversation
4. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Lazy Daisy Frost
5. Maybelline Salon Finish Miami Chill
6. Orly Live Wire [photo does not capture how bright this is]
7. Maybelline Express Finish Bamboo Yellow
8. Wet 'n' Wild Craze Cozumel
9. Wet 'n' Wild Craze The Wonder Yellows
10. Sally Hansen HD Hi Definition Hue
11. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Solar Creme [yeah, should have been on last week's wheel instead]
12. Revlon Street Wear Taxi [very subtle shimmer]
13. L'Oreal Bijou Gems B. Outrageous
14. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Cool It Frost
15. Naturistics Super Shine Sassy Sunflower Pearl
16. Sally Hansen HD Hi Definition unnamed mini [probably Lite]
17. Revlon Street Wear Shining
18. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Stylish Frost
19. Revlon Street Wear Dijon [very subtle shimmer]
20. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Chill Frost

The last one on the list, Chill Frost, is the most interesting to me, as it's got a green flash which is quite pretty and unexpected. Sally Hansen Hue (10) is interesting too, in that I wonder how they managed to combine a flecked finish with brushstrokey-ness.
