Let's start with the Happy Birthday, Lollipop: The Sylvia Plath Quad.  This is a set of 4 polishes in various shades of purple that pay homage to the author Sylvia Plath.  Up first I have What a Million Filaments.  It's a vibrant purple linear holo with green/blue/purple shifty micro glitters and blue flakes.  Love the base shade and all the subtle things going on in this one.  Formula and application were both fantastic.  2 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat.  This will be $12.

The Big Strip Tease is a deep lavender crelly with yellow/red shifting pigment blue to gold micro flakies and scattered holo glitters.  Another gorgeous purple with a completely fabulous formula.  Applied perfectly in 3 thin coats.  Finished with topcoat.  It will be $9.50.

This is For the Hearing of My Heart and it's my favorite of the quad.  SO so so so pretty! It's a raspberry jelly base with scattered holo micro glitters and dark flakes.  The official description says they are red/orange/purple shifting chameleon flakes, but I didn't really see the shift, they just looked like a dark purple shade.  Clearly that didn't perturb me at all because I thought this polish was gorgeous.  I used 3 coats to build up the opacity and finished with topcoat.  Awesome formula, applied easily.  This one will cost ya $12.

The last one in The Sylvia Plath Quad is Out of the Ash.  This is a stunning purple jelly base with vibrant blue shimmer.  It's got a touch of scattered holo shimmer and some small purple micro flakies.    I really liked this one too, such a pretty, vampy shade.  And the blue shimmer really stands out!  I used 3 coats and a layer of topcoat.  Great formula and application.  No problems to report.  Out of the Ash is $11.

Moving on to The Year of Tarot: May 2018 shades!  There are 2 new polishes to add to this collection  that's been going on for the year.  The High Priestess is a beautiful blue jelly with vibrant red to pink aurora shimmer and scattered holo.  In shade it actually shifts to a teal shade!  Formula and application were both really great.  No issues.  3 thin coats and topcoat.  The price is $12.

Temperance is one of my favorites in this entire post.  It's so unusual and pretty.  But I am always drawn to taupe shades.  It's a greige base with a soft violet cast.  There are red/gold.green shifting aurora pigments and shifty iridescent glitters.  Since it has a jelly finish and is a lighter color, if you have very white nail tips like I do, don't expect it to fully cover them.  I had no problems with formula or application.  Used 3 layers and topcoat.  This will be $12.

Last but not least is the Single Pour LE: The Dancing Girl Throwback.  Gone for Miles Now was one of the shades from the inaugural Dancing Girl collection from May 2015.  This is a bright blue crelly with a pinky-purpley shimmer.  There's also some blue/green shimmer and a nice helping of holo pigment too!  This shade perfectly walks the line between a being bright and pastel, brastel?  Let's make that a thing!  I used 3 thin coats and finished with topcoat.  You can see that my nail line is still slightly visible.  But I have no problems with formula or application.  Gone for Miles Now will be $12.
