Swatches and reviews? The Jewels Of Olympus-set one

All right! Found my camera cord, the 45+ pictures are now uploaded. Yay! But first, some swatches and reviews for another wonderful set of creations by Lynda!

Ok, first I'll tell you the facts. This is the first part of a two part set. The second set's release date is TBA. This is also a collaboration with Nailnation! She will have additional polishes for this set. The release date is April 7.

I have six polishes to show you today! All of these polishes (except where mentioned) were 3 thin coats w/ a coat of seche on top. The formulas were great! Application, as usual was a dream.

First up, my surprise favorite: Aphrodite. A hot pink shade with a purple shimmer that makes it look fuchsia.

next, Poseidon, another favorite...this polish is a mix of blue micro flakies in different shades with a gold/green shimmer. There was no other coloring used. STRICTLY glitter flakies.

next, Hera...a champagne colored polish that appears an off white shade w/ gold shimmer.

next Zeus! A glitter topper mix of gold flakies, and white hex glitter in two sizes. Index finger is 1 coat, middle is 2, ring is liquid leather with 1 coat of Zeus, and pinky is white on white with 1 coat as well.

next, Ares. A glitter topper mix consisting of micro black and red holographic glitter. Again, index is 1 coat, middle is 2. Ring and pink are white on white with 2 coats on the ring finger and 1 coat on the pinky.

And finally, Athena! This holographic glitter topper has a mix consisting of blue hexes, teal hexes, gold hexes, micro gold and teal hexes, and gold and teal dots. I love this! I did have to do a little placing with the dots, but that was more so because I am picky, and not the polish. Plenty of those dots came out on the brush! I couldn't decide what color to swatch it with, so I decided to do the mani that came to mind the second I opened all this prettiness.
