As I mentioned I had 3 of the 5 piece collection to show you.  Up first is this amazing hot pink called Folies Bergere.  You can really see the gorgeous holo and the silver flakies!  You know I love me some Cupcakes and these were totally on point!  Formula and application were both can-can leg-kicking fantastic.  Very opaque and full coverage.  Man I love how easy Sara's polishes are to use - they practically apply themselves!  I used 2 coats of Folies Bergere and finished with a layer of topcoat.

The next one I have is Bluebell Girls.  Let me first apologize because I could not for the life of me get this color right.  Even a little color editing still couldn't nail it down.  The IRL (in real life) shade is a lighter neon aqua shade - it's showing a darker blue in my pictures.  But despite my failure at catching the shade, I think you can still tell how gorgeous this polish is!  Another linear holo with silver flakies.  Formula and application were purrrrrrrfect (that's exactly what my notes say).  I used 2 coats of Bluebell Girls for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.

I love pink and aqua as much as the next girl, BUT this is the one that had me all twitterpated.  My heart really does belong to the darker shades - they just make me feel super sexy and Lido de Paris is SEXAY!  It's a steely grey - so dark it's darn near black.  It's full of those fabulous silver flakies.  I really don't know what else to say about this one.  If I were to suggest 1 for you to buy this is is.  Lido de Paris is all that and a bag of chips AND a milkshake.  I used 2 coats of Lido de Paris for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.
