First up is Damsel.
Damsel is a "taupe-nude creme with shimmer". The formula was awesome, what you see is two coats with no top coat. The darkness and opacity builds with each coat. The first coat of it is generally lighter than the second. The shimmer in this is GORGEOUS, which is what I was drawn to in the first place. I have a thing for nudes lately, and this one goes great with my skin tone. Dry time was normal.
This is Royal Brat.
HOLY AMAZING GREEN JELLY! Royal Brat is described as a "bright lime green jelly" and it certainly is. What you see here is three coats (no top coat) of a super smooth, super awesome jelly polish. The finish on this is so pretty, and the color is perfect for spring/summer weather. I would suggest waiting a bit between applying each coat so you don't get bald spots. The dry time on this was a bit longer because of the three coats, but not unbearably long. This shade of green is bright in the sun, and a bit more muted in the shade - so I included a picture of it in the shade.
