"Kleaning" Overload

This morning I ran into my local beauty supply store to pick 
up a couple of NYX shadows that they have real cheap there.
Dontcha know that when you attempt to run in and out 
of store quickly, you always end up with twice as much stuff as you had originally planned to buy.
This particular beauty supply always has KleanColor polishes,
but it's always the same 5 shades from 2 years ago. 
This morning I walked in and the were 2 huge racks filled with KleanColor!
I got a little carried away and ended up putting a few back, but this is what I ended up with. Oh and one Brucci polish for the heck of it. hehe

Pastel Teal - Nope, this is a true sky blue color, not a single resemblance of Teal. I've got a small handful of similar colors, but nothing quite this light. It's a standard cream, a little streaky on the 1st coat, but perfect on the 2nd.

 Lavenbaby - I really couldn't tell you why I'm on such a purple/plum kick, but I am. Sigh, I have many colors that are practically identical, but this pretty purple cream looked so pretty, I couldn't help myself.
Applied beautifully with a single coat.

Elizabeth A's Natural - Shrugs, don't ask me, I didn't name it lol
This gorgeous oyster cream color is really perfect to wear year round.
Again, this one applied beautifully in a single coat.

Cafe Au Lait - This is a yellow-based camel color. It's showing a bit more yellow in the photos, it is much more muted than it appears.
Great for Fall, I'm looking forward to using it.
Applied flawless with a single coat.

 Fashionista - Oh yes! This one I had been hoping to get my hands on. 
This is the best of the lot. A true olive green cream. Yummy.
Slightly streaky on the 1st coat, but 2 made it perfect.

Red Sparkle - Now this one is very unusual, at least to my eyes.
It's a red-based jelly with not red, but silver sparkles. It's probably the jelly base and the fact that I just watched the DEXTER premiere last night, but this reminds me of blood. LOL Blood in a good way, in a Halloween way.
:D You'll see me use this for at least 1 of my Halloween looks, I'm sure.
Chunky Copper - This is an orange-based jelly with small round & larger hexogon orange glitter in it. Yes, the name says copper, but this really couldn't get anymore orange. 
4 coats to get some solidity to the glitter, but this is really best as a top coat. Again, you'll see me using this one for Halloween.

Here's some swatches
