Each set comes in a wonderful big top themed box with dividing inserts for each polish. It will retail for $50 plus shipping and is only available to Australian residents (sorry international indie lovers).

"#bellabelle" by Bella Belle Nail Couture. A delicate pink holographic polish with silver dust. Pink and silver are Victoria's (the creators) favourite shades so putting them together into a signature shade made perfect sense. This one is my favourite shade from part one. For my swatch I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat. As with any other holographic polish it looks best under a light or even better, in direct sunlight.

"Night Owl" by Moonstone Nail Polish. This polish has a cobalt blue jelly base with blue, pink and iridescent hex, holo dust, lilac dots, and a subtle purple shimmer. I loved the look of this in the sunlight, so fun and vibrant! For my swatch I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat.

"Majestic" by Glam Polish. This is a classic Glam Polish shade with a rich eggplant base with a hit of microglitters and shimmery glass flecks that shift between red/purple/gold/green. In the sunlight this polish looks amazing, as it is a dark vampy shade of purple with just the right amount of sparkle. For my swatch I used two coats plus a glossy top coat.

"Butterfly Garden" by Glittering Elements. A soft minty green base with a holographic shimmer and micro glass flecks. Such a beautiful polish. Inspired by butterflies landing on stems of grass covered in morning dew with the warm sun shining down onto the garden. For my swatch I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat.

"Scarlet" by Smudged Polish. A rich blood red jelly with holographic and matte red, silver, and gold glitter. The jelly base of this polish is simply flawless and it applies like butter and has a smooth finish, even without a top coat. It's so squishy! For my swatch I used three thin coats and added a glossy top coat for good measure. Then I also added a matte top coat.
