Pretty Serious In The Night

So I had been having a really super mega crappy week (I have been saying that a lot lately..) and then a charming young man came to my door with a package that I was not expecting.  Inside, I found this:

I squeed.  I danced around.  I swatched.  Et voila.

All are 2 coats besides Claris which was 3.

I added a coat of China Glaze Snowglobe before I moved on to the next swatch.

Now I cannot get this out of my head:

Additional layer of China Glaze Techno which was not awesome :\

One coat of China Glaze Blue Hawaiian

Additional layer of China Glaze Glacier

One coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Poppy

China Glaze Shooting Stars.  It's like Fairy Dust and Snowglobe had a babby.

The formula on these was fabulous.  I did need to wait between coats of Claris as she liked to tug a bit, and Nightmaren was just a touch thick so it could maybe use a few drops of thinner and perhaps for me not to be so speedy with my application.  Nothing significant.  The formula on all others was a frigging breeze.  I was particularly impressed with Dream Delight.  I don't think I have another glitter that applies so smoothly and so opaquely in 2 coats.

I cannot express how awesome this collection is and how much it meant to me to receive it.  I love this game.  I still have it!  I couldn't find it to take pictures, but I do have it!  I need to bust out the Saturn one of these days.  I used to play this game waaaay back in the day with my first love.

I have a lot of good memories associated with this game.  One of my favourites.  Beautiful and fluid, just like the polishes!  Thank you secret gifter.  Thank you Kaz.  You brought me back up from way down low *heart*
