Celestial Cosmetics The Valyrio Collection plus Sweet Pea, Dream, & Hawthorn : Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hello! I have a selection of polishes from Celestial Cosmetics to share today, courtesy of Color4Nails. The first six polishes make up her recently released Valyrio Collection, created in collaboration with Serenity Nails and inspired by Game of Thrones. The final three polishes were limited edition monthly release polishes from Celestial, and though they are not available in her shop, they are available in Color4Nails shop, as well as other polishes in this post. 

Celestial Cosmetics Daria Zaldrizoti
Three coats
Red-pink-gold duo-chrome
My favorite kind of duo-chrome! This is red dominant but you get strong flashes of pink and gold. It applies well, though it is on the thinner side, so three coats for coverage.

Celestial Cosmetics Dracarys
Two coats
Red linear holographic with red micro-glitter
A seriously stunning red holo. I love the added micro-glitter and the extra sparkle you get from those. This was opaque enough that I needed two coats for coverage.

Celestial Cosmetics Kastamiro Damior
Three coats
Dark teal base with green-blue-teal-purple duo-chrome shimmer
This was a nice, darker teal blue. I didn't feel that the duo-chrome was quite as strong as the red one but you will get flashes of green/purple, especially if you layer it over black. I wore it by itself in three thin coats.

Celestial Cosmetics Sesir Kipi 
Two coats
Cobalt blue linear holographic with green/golden shimmer
I can't resist cobalt shades and I love how vibrant this holo one is. Applies in two thin coats.

Celestial Cosmetics Lilagon
Two coats
Green base with a green-gold-blue-red duo-chrome 
Mother of all the dragons, this is glorious! It's richly olive in coloring, which I really love. The application is was bit more opaque than the other shimmers in the collection, so two coats for coverage.

Celestial Cosmetics Kirimvos
Two coats
Emerald green linear holographic with blue-green-gold opal flakes
A completely different type of green as the previous one but equally as awesome. This flakes peak through the emerald base, which is a nice detailing. Two coats for coverage but you may need a third.

Celestial Cosmetics April LE Sweet Pea
Two coats
Red-toned purple with purple-red-gold duo-chrome pigment, soft green shimmer, scattered holo and blue flakes
You can't quite see the flakes in my photos, my glare doesn't help (sorry!) but in person you can see them more clearly. I love the dark red toned color as well. Two coats for coverage.

Celestial Cosmetics Dream
Two coats
Lilac purple linear holographic polish with strong pink micro-flake
This has a mirror like shimmer quality, which adds a metallic look and it looks fantastic in the sun. This is not a traditional monthly release, it was created to mark the three year anniversary of Celestial Cosmetics in late March/early April.

Celestial Cosmetics May LE Hawthorn 
Two coats
Pearly silver holographic with rose gold flakes and red shimmer
The red shimmer and rose gold flakes give the polish a very pink overcast, which I like. It's unique color for sure. It's a bit thick but I applied two thinner coats and got opaque coverage that way.
