I hit mine in the mail today. I ordered Pru, Natty and Evvie. Natty and Evvie are different than anything I have (which is by I ordered them) but will take some getting used to. Pru will need more than one coat so I will have to experiment. It is much lighter than I thought it would be.

I received mine yesterday. DD picked out Mimi and loves it. It's a dark purple glitter. I got Gia which is a pretty red with orange undertones and Cassi which is a peachy color with a little bit of glitter to it. I haven't had time to play yet to see how they look on me.

I bought Amanda because the reviews said it was flattering on African-American skin and I absolutely love it!

So far I have tried Annie and I love it. It's totally outside of my comfort zone but it's cheery and beachy and wonderful! Can't wait to try the others.

It shows mine shipped the 14th but I still do not have it. For $10 shipping it should have been here last week!

I like mine quite a lot, though the colors are different than I expected. The ones I selected looked pretty pinkish on my monitor, but they are more peachy IRL. They are still very pretty, light, neutral colors - which is what I wanted.

The color sample brochure they included with my order shows the colors accurately, so the problem is my monitor, not on their end.

I ordered Salma and it was a lot more of a orangy red than a true red. It seemed redder in the description and the look of it online. It's a pretty color, just not quite what I was expecting.

I have Kieko on my toes, and it looks so pretty. So I'm pretty happy with that one.

Wednesday and Opal look great together. Wednesday is a aqua and opal is an iridescent glitter. Also bought Bebe, a pink. Haven't tried that one yet.

I buy the color spoons and find the brochure to not be the same color as the real polish.

I got Erika which is very pretty, almost a french manicure pink with iridescent sheen.

Tallulah, which I got for DD, is blue with a purple iridescence to it. She will love it! The color on the screen shows a straight up blue, which it isn't.

I also got Joy which is absolutely not the purple it looks. It's definitely a mauve-y pink. That's the one I'm disappointed in. The color family says pink but by the photo you'd never guess it. Oh well, I'll still use it!

I just did a home mani-pedi tonight and painted both toes and fingertips with Richelle - a gorgeous glittery bronze color. Love it.

I think I'll be really happy with Rose, too - a very pale pinkish opal with an iridescent sheen.

My third one is Haley. I thought it would be a more orangey red. Somehow with reds I always think I'm branching out and then get them home to find out it's one gnat's hair away from the dozen reds I already have!

Ha! Maybe Jeremysgirl and I need to trade.

i don't have the names handy, but i love mine. i was surprised that without even knowing i ordered a hot pink that was the same one i chose last time they had the free bottles. guess i like it lol. that one was old and dried up anyway, so no harm done.

the other was a glittery slightly orange pink, and an opaque white. very happy with all.

I ordered Gilda, Gie Gie, Kimmy and Kimber. Yes, I know all Gs and Ks. I have one of them on my toes (Kimber I think)--a hot pink for a cold, cold week.

ETA: Maybe it's Gilda. Three of mine are more hot pink/red the other is a light pink.

I gave myself a Mani/pedi tonight and used Natty. It looks good! I like it much better with two coats. My 4year old wanted me to do something "pretty" and picked out a pink for next time.

I went with more pink and purple this year, and I love them all
so far.

Prior order colors:
Salma didn't move me. I wasn't thrilled with the orange in it.
Kissy, which has actual sparkly "bits" in it ... it's just not me.
Sunny was also not a favorite shade.

I put the paper color chart they sent with my order in a safe place, so that
hopefully next year I won't have to just rely on my computer monitor
to pick the colors again
