I tried to photograph all four of these in 3 types of lighting: outdoors in full sun, indoors with an Ott lamp, and indoors under a skylight with no flash. The colors, being cremes, stay true in any lighting and are quite pigmented. I had no application problems, as the formula on all of them was perfect. I used 2 coats and they all covered nicely. They were a bit streaky on the first coat, but nothing that the second coat couldn't conceal. I'm very impressed with these--I love the shades themselves, the formula was excellent, and the names are cute and catchy (the color descriptions above are from the press release). I didn't see any duplicates in my stash, and although some reminded me of other polishes, when I compared them, they were indeed different.
What do you think? Do you see any you think you'll be getting?
