My (scattered) thoughts:
So bright and fun, no? I really do like all the colors here, but I wish there was a bit more heterogeneity in the polishes' consistency - four of the six are simply 'some shade of glitter' with silver hexagonal glitter, in a clear base. Great, but a little one-note. I enjoyed the variety in Excuse Moi!, which had a colored base and was quite friendly for generating opacity (two coats will do!).
Unlike the rest of the lacquers Excuse Moi! dried rather roughly, though that's nothing a brush or two of topcoat can't remedy. I was impressed that the rest of the glitters dried so smoothly and glossily; I didn't experience the bumps and unevenness that's an unfortunate side-effect with many, many glitters.
Rainbow Connection will be hard to build up unless you try five+ coats (which I'm unwilling to do!), but the rest can become opaque with four coats, comfortably.
Do any of these glitters catch your eye?
