Batch-A-Palooze #5 features a pink leaning purple crelly base filled with pink shimmer and small  red to gold to green shifting metallic flakies. The formula was easy to work with and I used three coats for full coverage. Photos show three coats of Batch-A-Palooza #5 with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Mystery #13

Mystery #13 features a magenta jelly base filled with indigo shimmer and flakies in shades of turquoise and fuchsia. The formula was a tad thick because of all the flakies, but still workable. It took two coats for full coverage but I added a third for extra flakies and depth. Photos show three coats of Mystery #13 with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat in daylight spectrum lighting.

The Boy In The Iceberg features an azure blue jelly base filled with a turquoise to violet shifting flecked shimmer and turquoise to violet shifting iridescent flakies. The formula was excellent and very easy to work with. It was pretty much full coverage after two coats, but I added a third for some extra flakie depth.
