Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 These are swatches of the newer StrangeBeautiful Volume 5.  I say newer because there is, to my knowledge, an older version of Volume 5 which contains two fewer polishes but bigger sized bottles.  The above polish is shown at two coats.  None of the swatches are with top coat.
 All of the volumes have newer versions now with smaller bottles and two new colors each.  The above polish is shown at just one coat!
 I find the whole bottle size change and additional colors in the newer volumes to be rather disconcerting.  The above polish, which is quite lovely, is shown at two coats but probably could have been just one coat.
 The polish above is shown at three coats.  It's kind of pinkish taupe?  I like it but I wish my nails weren't so stained.  :(
 The above polish is just about the exact color of my stains, speaking of stains!  I only used one coat.
 The polish above is shown at two coats.  It's a dark grayish brown.  None of the polishes have names, if you hadn't gathered that by now.  I kind of wish they had names or numbers or something.  Or, at least the bottle could have a label on the bottom that says which volume it's from.  It's kind of confusing.
 The polish above is shown at one coat!  It's a lovely dark, cool, gray.
 The polish above is shown at two coats.  It's a caramely color, not too unlike the very first caramely color.  This one is a little muddier or murkier somehow.  I prefer the first one.
 This one above is shown at two coats.  It's a very dark brown with just a hint of green.
This is the last one in the set.  It's shown here at one coat.  Awesome color!

Overall, the set is full of interesting and odd colors.  There are a couple that I really don't care for, but most of them I quite like.  Some feel too similar to each other for me.  The formula and application are excellent and you can tell that they are all ridiculously shiny.  I'm not sorry that I have this set, but I am rather disappointed by the change in bottle size and the addition of new colors to the older sets (some of which I own but now I feel like I'm missing colors from them).  It's frustrating from the stand point of collecting the different volumes.

The last blue looks a bit like China Glaze's First Mate! Lovely swatches though(:

I have never heard of this brand before-am going to have to check it out-these colors are stunning!

PS-do you mind telling me where you got this collection? I just googled it with no luck-I have a contact form on my blog-I would really appreciate it!

Wow!! Those are awesome!! I agree with you, liked most of them too!! :D
But sadly these are not available in my contry..

Nicole - thank you!!

Fingers - I ordered them from www.luckyscent.com They have other really pretty volumes, too! I also got my most favorite ever perfume from there, which is Etat Libre D'Orange Like This. It's so yummy!

beingpretty - I'm glad you like them but sorry that they don't sell them where you are. :( I'm guessing they are only sold in Europe and the U.S. I'm not sure if those companies would ship to other countries or not.

I'm loving how shiny these are! I'm dying over the browns

do you know if the 5th or 8th picture is a dupe of the Aged Chartreuse from volume 4? ive been dying to get this one colour :(

Anonymous - I'm going to say no, it's not a dupe for either of those. Both of the ones shown above have more brown in them and are less vibrant. I did compare Aged Chartreuse to a color in the Camo library and it looks to be very, very close. The one in the Camo set might be just a hair darker, just barely, but it's the same tone of greenish mustard! That would be your best bet. I hope this helps!

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
