Melissa is a sheer opalescent shimmer adds a soft glow when used alone and a high-fashion holographic effect when used over another color.
In the bottle and on camera Melissa looks like a white milky color, but in person she has quite a bit of a pearly green shine too it. I was intrigued enough that I couldn't wait to swatch it.
I painted one of my wheel nails half black and half naked to see how it would look.
This is how it turned out. Over black it almost has a foil finish to it.

I think I like it better over a lighter color than dark, though both are very interesting looking.
Next is Brooke which I absolutely adore.
Brooke is a sheer shimmery purple. Use alone or over another shade to add a modern twist.

I'll let the swatch speak for me. It's a lovely amethyst topper. I did the same half/half on the nail wheel. Excuse the streaking I was anxious and didn't let the nail try completely.

All told I would love to try Portia and Emma. Emma is a seashell pink that would go on like Melissa. Portia is a gorgeous tropical blue with a shine like Brooke.
