Below: Earthly Harmony, a darker beige or medium taupe shade is laced with subtle coppery/gold shimmer or glitter. The glitter isn't terribly evident in all lighting, but it definitely adds a nice little extra to an already popular shade.
Below: Concubine is shown with an Ott light (first photo) and outdoors in the shade (second photo). This deep ruby red shade glows and twinkles with lighter red glitter that seems to shift around on the nail. The glitter applies evenly, but the way it plays with the light makes it appear as a vampy darker red creme with any movement bringing the glitter to life.
Below: Jade Dragon is a medium forest green with blue undertones. The lighter aqua/green shimmer or glitter is very fine and delicate, like all of the glitter in this collection. I use a base coat when swatching and this particular one gave me complete Smurf nails! After some extra time and cotton balls, I was able to remove it thoroughly.
Below: Imperial Flower is a fairly bright orange with golden orange shimmer. This is a beautiful tone of orange and is almost closer to a tangerine color.
Below: Ming Blue is a little more subdued than a royal blue, but I would classify it in that color family. The pale aqua/blue glitter is obvious in any lighting.
Below: Rain of Flowers is the color of grape juice, for lack of a better descriptive color term! The bright blue, almost violet shimmer or glitter is difficult to discern in almost any lighting, so that was disappointing to me, given the way it appears in the bottle.
Overall, I think this collection is a hit. It's got a varied range of colors, and while the finishes are basically the same with the foily glass-flecked glitter, I'm not disappointed in any of them with the exception of Rain of Flowers. Had that particular one not looked so stunning in the bottle, I wouldn't have expected more from it. The formula and pigmentation on all of these is well above average.
