Not A Plain Jane is a topcoat lacquer, containing hex glitters in
varying shades of white and pink, along with a few white hearts. Not A
Plain Jane is named for one of my favorite people. She is sophisticated,
feminine, completely fun, and known to sprinkle fairy dust in the lives
of those she loves.

43 Quintillion is a topcoat lacquer. It contains hex glitters all of the
colors you might find on a certain cube-shaped game from the 1980s,
which happens to have forty-three quintillion combinations. 43
Quintillions is the life of the party -- she's a little bit wild, a
little bit mixed up, and is always working to see how high she can get
her bangs and how crimped she can get her hair.

Candeo Colors is a relatively new-to-me brand, mostly because the shop normally sold out too quickly for me to get anything. But I was recently able to acquire a few of them, Orchid being one. Orchid has a beautiful magenta jelly base with holo glitters disbursed throughout.
I opted to use Orchid as a layering polish over a shimmery magenta, China Glaze Ahoy!

So I hadn't ever won anything. Like a contest or the lotto or really even gambling. I'm just not lucky that way. But recently, I was the unexpected and very happy winner of a Shimmer Polish raffle! For winning, I got to select two polishes of my choice for a penny. One of my picks was, of course, a beautiful blue glitter bomb, Liana. All of Shimmer Polish's lacquers are named after women and I think it gives them character.
To start off my manicure, I opted for one of my favorite blues -- Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren. This is a total steal and I bought mine at Meijer (a midwest superstore) but I've seen this line at a bunch of different places. I think this was $2.99. No more than $3.99. It's a gorgeous blue creme with the best consistency. Here is Sapphire Siren:
And here is Shimmer Polish Liana:
And here is only ONE coat of Liana over Sapphire Siren. Can you believe the coverage?!?

I had the opportunity to pre-buy some Dollish Polish lacquers from Overall Beauty a little while back and one of those lacquers was Sweet Dreams Are Made of Glitter, a shimmery mint-based polish with pink, blue, magenta, and purple glitter disbursed throughout. It arrived in the mail about a week ago and I've been itching to try it out ever since then.
I started off my manicure with China Glaze Re-fresh Mint:
And added a coat of Sweet Dreams on top:

Lush Lacquer's Hottie Tottie is one that I purchased awhile ago but haven't gotten around to using for one reason or another. But after the recent arrival of A England Elaine, a beautiful purple creme, I decided it was time to break out Hottie Tottie as a topcoat.
Hottie Tottie has blue holographic hexes and small blue and fuchsia hexes in a purple-hued base.
And here is one coat of Hottie Tottie layered over one coat of Elaine:
