Rogue Lacquer was inspired by Justice League character Cyborg to create “More Than a Machine”. This polish will retail for $11.50 and has no cap.


More Than a Machine is a blingy metallic silver holographic packed with holographic shards, scattered red flakes, and laser blue shimmer. I used two coats of polish for my swatch photos.


Here is another shade that has a stunning holographic effect outdoors under direct sunlight! Holo lovers everywhere will need this polish in their collection.


Ms Sparkle was inspired by vintage toys to create “Kawaii”, which will be $11.00 with no cap.


Kawaii is a vivid red crelly with holographic microflakies, aurora pigment, and black and white matte glitters. This shade was opaque in 2 coats of polish for me.

Whooo Are You? is a teal to blue to purple shifting multichrome with copper to green iridescent flakes and a touch of holographic flakies. In this side-by-side, you can she the intense shift from bright teal to bright purple.

This polish really has a little bit of everything: multichrome, holographic, AND these gorgeous flakies!


Turtle Tootsie created “A Hero in His Own Mind”, inspired by Marvel. This shade will retail for $11.00 and will have no cap.


This shade is an evil dark green holographic with gold shimmer and gold flakies. This polish was opaque in three coats for me.


Lilypad is continuing through the Zodiac signs with “Scorpio”, which will be $15.00 with a 100 bottle cap.


Scorpio is a brick red toned holographic with deep coppery red flakes.


JReine created “Cajun Wonderland” which was inspired by New Orleans in the winter. This shade will retail for $12.50 and has a cap of 200 bottles.


This polish is a white crelly with a strong red shimmer, red-green aurora shimmer, and red-gold flakies. This polish will really get you in the mood for the holiday season and snow! I used three coats of polish for my swatch photos. I also want to point out that I found the red shimmer to be much stronger in person, but difficult to capture on camera.


Finally, the last shade I have to share for the November pre-order is from My Indie Polish. “Ian is My Hero” is a thermal inspired by Ian from Shameless. This polish will be $13.00 and has a 75 bottle cap.


Ian is My Hero is an an orange to yellow thermal with red shimmer, copper holographic glitter, and holographic pigments. I used three coats for my swatch photos.


Here’s a shot of this shade in its warm state; I want to point out that I found this shade to be a little more peach-toned in person than it ended up appearing in my swatch photos!


Here’s a shot of this shade in the warm state, a beautiful, sunny yellow.
