Ahoy Matey!

Ahoy Matey is complicated. It's the color of the ocean - sometimes aqua blue, sometimes green, full of color-shifting shimmer that shifts from violet to copper to gold. Like the description says, this is one bad ass unique polish! I don't own anything like it. I wish I would have used 3 coats because my vnl is hella strong in my pics. Totally amazing shifts of color. My swatch is 2 coats plus top coat. 

Annie Get Your Gun

This polish is incredibly hard to describe.  A continuously changing color scheme that includes shades of blue, green, gunmetal grey, purple with an added pink to purple to lavender sheen.  Tightly scattered glowing holographic with arcs of green, yellow, gold, turquoise and purple. Oh cbl, how I love thee. This is one super amazing shade. I swear I can't even with these polishes! Ahh! 2 coats plus top coat! 

And for the Crelly/creme & shimmer colors!

  1. These look gorgeous. I was about to try the mint green one, until I read that the photos are more blue than it really is. Years ago I had a robin egg blue polish that was discontinued. I bet I have bought at least 2 dozen bottles trying to replace that color. I should just ask someone to blend it for me, I suppose.
