Celestial Cosmetics It's All Happening Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hi everyone! In addition to the Esmaltes de Kelly Marvel and DC Comics polishes I shared last week, Color4Nails also sent me Celestial Cosmetics' It's All Happening Collection, which is what I have for you today. 

This collection was a collaboration between Christine of Serenity Nails and Celestial Cosmestics, and it's inspiration comes from the Almost Famous. If you wanted to read Christine's blog review, you can see that here. I personally loved the inspiration material and all these gorgeous colors that were created from it and now need to go back and do a re-watching of Almost Famous, just to reminisce. I decided to take photos in both indirect and direct sunlight for all the polishes, just so you can see all the detailing. 

The It's All Happening Collection is available now in Color4Nails shop, who does ship worldwide. 

Celestial Cosmetics Does Anybody Remember Laughter?
Three coats
Periwinkle blue with blue and pink micro-flake shimmer
Can you ever go wrong with periwinkle blue? I think not! Formula is on the thin side, especially when applying toward the tip of my nails so three coats worked best.

Celestial Cosmetics Incendiary 
Two coats
Silver metallic foil linear holographic with silver flakes
One of my favorites of the collection. It's has such a high shine metallic finish and the holo flame is like WHOA in the sun.

Celestial Cosmetics Lady
Two coats
Rose mauve creme with blue and purple micro-flakes and pink shimmer
A very lady like color for sure. And the flakes add some contrast. The formula was similar to Does Anyone Remember Laughter but this was a tad more opaque so I got away with two coats.

Celestial Cosmetics Set You Free
Three coats
Bright orange jelly with golden flakes and shimmer
This color is as juicy and as orange as could be. Those gold flakes give it more warmth and opacity. It does need about three coats for complete coverage and since it is a jelly, I would say wait a few minutes between those coats.

Celestial Cosmetics Swill Merchants
Three coats
Light gray crelly with gold micro-flakes and green shimmer.
This color was so hard for my to capture correctly. It looks a bit less blue toned than it actually is, my lighting gives it a slightly cooler tone. The only one that I felt like I had to apply with more care, I waited between coats to prevent any dragging.

Celestial Cosmetics We Are Band Aids
Two coats
Plum purple linear holographic with pink shimmer and red sparks. 
I have seen more than a few plum purple holos so I was surprised at how much I loved this one! I shouldn't be surprise though, it's a stunning purple, both in and out of the sun. The pink shimmer gives it a slightly metallic look and the linear holo is a high density one.

Celestial Cosmetics You Are Home
Two coats
Mint green crelly with iridescent and silver flakes
Beautiful! The color is awesome in it's vibrancy.
