I like Anarchy and DarkRoom. Pale yellows can run so streaky, but this looks pretty good!. Darkroom is blue so that puts it on the table alone. I get great wear from NARS polishes and love the formula.

Anarchy and Insidious are the ones I was instantly drawn to! Look great! It must have been such a task to swatch all of these! Thanks so much Christine for the hard work! 🙂

I like Wrong Turn I’m in love with a shimmery metal finished. Unfortunate I think Gold Viper is too bright for me 🙁

It is interesting to me that these are being promoted as new colors. I know they have new names, but almost all of these shades look like old Nars polishes. For instance, I will be very interested to see how close Insidious is to Mash. Nothing stands out as a must here, but I’ve never been a huge fan of Nars’ polishes.

I really love Insidious! I have nothing like it, I also like Wrong Turn. They are all quite interesting, though. A good collection of nail polishes I think.

Insidious looks too close to MASH for me. I feel like if you layered MASH over black, that’s what you’d get lol.
Gold Viper is pretty cool looking, but I wonder how it was to work with.
Your swatch is perfect and creamy, but I can see it being like…streak city on me, because I can never get frosts to look good.

These are beautiful, but nothing sticks out to me as something I’d just have to have. For the most part, they look pretty dupeable. The formula would have to be A+++ for me to HAVE TO HAVE any of these, unfortunately 🙁
