I swapped away MAC Bad Fairy and OPI The Show Must Go On long ago. :/

No. 10 is G-gal Red *Night* Sky Brilliant.  It’s so difficult for me to correct spacing and text once I botch it in my primitive labeling program…

I’ve performed a similar comparison here, but have since inadvertently permanently deleted the photos in an attempt to free up space.  Quite all right, since the present comparison has more members, with better images!

SONY DSC

L’Apogee Optico Ambar, which I will also feature in a multichrome topper post (dreading this task since I loathe swatching over black, and in fact have never done it).

SONY DSC

Revlon Spiderman LE from Summer 2014, 1000 Volts.  This was an amazing (lol) collection of duo/multichromes.

SONY DSC

L’Oreal The Temptress’ Power.  Think this is LE from Fall 2012 (?).

SONY DSC

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Firefly.  I purchased this long ago at full price when this series first showed up on shelves.  Although I see them ’round deeply discounted, I still think they’re underrated — the two I’ve featured here I find especially beautiful.

Above and below, Color Club Wild & Willing.  I have never gotten round to putting lots of coats of this under a royal purple shatter for Hallowe’en…

SONY DSC

…maybe for All Souls’ Day, or in time for Dia de los Muertos?

SONY DSC

CQ Rustic Dream.  Now this is one gorgeous varnish.  Gotta try her under purple crackle as well…

F21 L&B Amber, another 1970s-esque stunner.

F21 L&B Red/Multi x 3.  Fantastic dupe for MAC Bad Fairy, a varnish I had and traded untried.

Yes, an even better dupe for MAC Bad Fairy than Claire’s Poison Apple, which I forgot to include here.

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Copperhead.  My favorite of the bunch.  See nail wheel swatch below.*

*Above and below, respectively second from right and second from left, SH LS Copperhead.  She’s got purple in her, which flashes only very occasionally in the bottle at home, and never in the shops (their lighting is too direct).

Skin Food Nail Vita BR609 (so sparkly in the shop it gets me every visit, so I’ve inadvertently bought *three*)

Essie Armed & Ready (doctored to resemble RBL Anne before I had her)

F21 L&B Grey (such a dupe for Armed & Ready that I had to swatch each over again several times before I could figure out which was which on the nail wheel, and I’m still not convinced I have it right)

SONY DSC

Catrice 34 Squeeze Me, Etude House PP904, Maybelline Color Show Downtown Brown

This trio is the flashiest of the bunch, but they weren’t photogenic for me this go-round…

I think I might have originally intended to do a Brazilian shimmer lineup last fall, and that’s why I had ordered these as such on the nail wheel…

Left and right:  attempting to figure out what was what on the nail wheel pictured above and below, since I had swatched everything in Fall 2013 without writing down the order…

The bottle cap to the right has a swatch of OPI First Class Desires at 8 o’clock, as well as China Glaze Choo-choo Choose Me at 4 o’clock and Lug Your Designer Baggage (coffee brown with flakes) at 12 noon.

I’ll miss those little Sephora bottles.  I have a Formula X varnish I purchased at a discount retailer for 75% off, to be featured here soon.
