Shimmy-shimmy boom-boom stunners, part II of II

Summer’s on her sunshiny way, café patrons!

That means a Summer Deluxe Edition of the Multichrome Comparison Library is in short order.

Put on a hat + sunglasses, grab your parasol + an outdoor table with a refreshing beverage of your choice, and relax + enjoy these little bottles as much as I delighted in gathering + posing them for you 🙂

All swatches 2x each, no aqua base or top coat

xx blueberry milk tea

Bling ring a la boheme

Floss Gloss Stun

After going round and round with Rickys NYC a couple of years ago re this varnish, I finally just went directly to the source (the Floss Gloss website) …

Colors by Llarowe Blonde Ambition

ILNP Spiced Eggnog (fugly base, gold flakes and holo shimmer)

A continuation of this wheel

Two coats each

Dance Legend Wow Prism 13 Steel Panther

Two coats, a continuation of this wheel

I needed another large particle scattered silver holo like … well, but this one *is* rather extraordinary!

A-England Katyusha

A true original stunner … multichrome shift and holographic beauty

xx blueberry milk tea

Sugar-glazed babycakes, rack no. 1

Babycakes, Glass Pink, 777 (all Cyrillic characters, name thus unknown)

Misty Rose, misnamed Fuchsia Glamour, Seashell Pink

Taffy, Robo Romance, Honeymoon in Style (bought a new bottle since the old one looks golden yellow in comparison)

New in: a full parcel stacked three rows high

I spent the entire Friday (aka Black Friday) following U.S. Thanksgiving hovering over my computer at intervals, leisurely adding varnish after varnish to my cart on the Ninja Polish site, then meticulously editing, until I ended up with this:

Nfu-Oh 37, 40, 46, 51, 56, 59

Nfu-Oh Aqua Base (for holographic varnishes), 62, 63, 64

Layla 11 Shock Pink

I didn’t order as many Nfu-Oh holos as I would have liked, since I was skittish about duds.

These three, however, are a trio of winners.  Lots of magic holo fairy dust in those bottles …

Hits Meninas Superpoderosas/Powerpuff Girls Docinho

Layla Ceramic Effect CE 56 – a really wow warmer-leaning green with a dusting of pale sheen.  Have a hunch I’m gonna really like this one…

Ludurana Aurora Boreal Magnifica – a perfumed aqua blue holo

Ludurana Aurora Boreal Emocionante – a perfumed crazy multichrome

Layla Ceramic Effect CE 63 – Chocolate Truffle.  I’ve wanted this one forever, sight unseen.

It’s better than my wildest dreams … more multichrome and faceted than I had imagined, better than OPI Teas-y Does It and the Nubar Chocolate series combined … and that’s not having been let out of the bottle yet 🙂

Tristam, Sleeping Palace, Guinevere, Galahad

Red Show 06, 07, 09 … these are even more incredible than I had anticipated.

New Prism 06 Teleportation, Top for Darks 603, Top for Darks 608

The Pinky & The Brain

Fred Said Red

Bloody Mary to Go

Robert’s Red Ford

Hello Kitty Lemon Pie Kit: Mint, Gum, Melon

Hello Kitty Apple Pie Kit:  Sweet, Candy, Apple

Hello Kitty Blueberry Pie Kit:  Blueberry, Plum, Fizzy

Fizzy leaked some gunky glue-like stuff onto herself and Blueberry.

All three bottles are otherwise clean and open fine.

I’m so weary of scrubbing up bottles that I left these as is :/

Copper Pot, Indigo, Coffee Love, Magic Flow

I put these together as my Viva El Salvador! group, since indigo and coffee used to be major exports until they were seemingly outshone by the maras.

Color-Changing Garnet, Mystic Glacier, Divinity

My chosen gifts with purchase 🙂  Divinity has an even better reputation than Clarins 230!

Lightshow, Nonfat Soy Half Caff, Leotard Optional, Glimmer More, Pink Platinum

I also bought yet another backup of SOPI Metro Chic, since who knows when we’ll see these old bottles again?

This was a mid-week discount retailer pick-me-up whilst awaiting the brick o’ varnish that arrived at my doorstep today. 🙂

xx blueberry milk tea

New in: nouveaux riches + old money holographics

All, 2x each

EDIT:  Addendum, there’s more!

NOPI Carrie Underwood Lips Are Dripping Honey, 2x

Dance Legend Pretty Top, dabbed an uneven third in an attempt to fish some of the gold and silver disks onto the chip :/

xx blueberry milk tea

P.S. Once I learn to read and write Russian Cyrillic characters, I’ll fill in everything here from the Dance Legend labels *and* I’ll likely abandon the café to throw myself at nail_ru and kosmetista.ru!
