2. Claire's Bubble Gum (3) [I was surprised to see this dried so matte; I'd expect that of a neon but this isn't that bright]
3. OPI unknown (3) [I couldn't see any codes on the bottom of this bottle and can't remember where/when I got it]
4. Viva la Diva 61 (3) [love the two colors of microflakie shimmer here]
5. H & M Hello Kitty Cool Summer (2)
6. Milani Purple Rush (2)
7. Collistar Viola Glitter (2) [thank goodness for swapping that makes it possible for me to get beauties like this]

9. Petites Color Fever Zodiac (3)
10. Flormar Supershine Miracle Colors U09 (2)
11. OPI Grape Set Match (2)

13. Kiko 278 Violet Orchid Microglitter (3)
14. China Glaze Let's Groove (2)
15. Zoya Yasmeen (2)
16. Milani Totally Cool (4) [dear Milani, please do more like this]
17. Orly Out of this World (3)
18. Studio M Alias (4)
