First up, this is True Red. Seriously, this one's a perfect cherry red creme. I used two coats for this swatch, but I could have gotten away with one if I'd been a little more careful.
This is Yellow Twist. I don't usually wear yellow polish, but I do know about how difficult they normally are. This yellow isn't difficult to work with at all. I only needed two coats and I will definitely use this one as my perfect rainbow yellow from now on. Great formula.
Enchanted Forest is a deep, mossy green. I was under the impression that this was a jelly and I have no idea where I picked that up. I might be confusing it with Nars Zulu. This is definitely a very pigmented creme and I only needed two coats for this swatch. Still, it's a great color and I'm glad I have this set.
Ocean View is a medium blue creme. It's super pigmented as well and I only needed two coats. It's been a while since I swatched these, but I wrote "perfect" in my notes when I swatched this one. It's seriously perfect.
Powerful Black. I needed two coats here, but the formula is super creamy and pigmented. When I reach for a black creme for layering, I usually go with Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme, but I just might reach for this one next time. Sure, I needed one more coat, but it's super glossy and nearly perfect to work with. Very nice, indeed.
And lastly, this is Rue St. Vincent. Unfortunately, I think my bottle sucks. The formula is chunky and watery at the same time. I carefully applied three coats for this swatch, but I would definitely not wear this one as a manicure when there are much nicer white polishes out there (Sally Hansen White On, for instance). I swatched this one first and was a bit disappointed so I'm glad the rest made me change my mind. Since this was the only one with a horrible formula, I'm thinking that it's just a fluke.
Overall, I really like these. The kit came with a clear top coat as well. I'm pretty sure it's not fast drying, but I'm going to try it out with Seche Vite to see if that'll stop the shrinkage I get with Seche Vite. All these swatches are without top coat (most of mine are) and you can see how glossy they are. I am very glad I ordered these.
UPDATE: I tried the Dare To Wear top coat underneath Seche Vite and it ended up wrinkling. :o(
