Cupcake Polish Air 
(Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)
Two coats
Periwinkle linear holographic with strong pink shimmer
This has an intensely strong shimmer that looks fantastic with the periwinkle color. Two coats for complete coverage, which is what I expect from Cupcake Polish's holos. The holo density is a medium to high one.

Different Dimension Earth 
(Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Two coats
Rich brown linear holographic with multi-chrome flakes plus blue and green holographic micro-glitter
Very appropiately named as the first thing that came to my mind was that it was such an earthy brown color. The added green/blue flakes give it some contrast. Easy application in two coats and a very bold holo flame in the sun.

Glisten & Glow Fire 
(Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) 
Two coats
Red linear holographic with scattered silver and cherry holo micro-glitter
Fire! Love it. The red has some pink to it, bringing to mind a cherry red color. The added bits of scattered micro-glitter are a nice touch. And two coats gave me the coverage I needed with a gorgeous blue holo flame in the sun.

Takko Lacquer Water 
(Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Three coats
Light aqua linear holographic with intense gold shimmer
I liked the color quite a bit though it looked a bit washed out on my skin tone in the shade. In the sun though, you really can see the gold shimmer and the more subtle holo flame. This was a bit thinner in formula so three coats worked best for coverage.
