Too Fancy Lacquer swatches

I'm back with another post of vintage Too Fancy Lacquer! While indies are not an old phenomenon, some of us fans look back with nostalgia about the early days of our favorite makers' brands. This post is alllll about the greens and oranges, after the break...
Cooper Trooper (1st version) made its appearance on the first restock of the brand. I had pestered Charlene about Forest Fairy (see later in the post) and she brought us this more opaque dark green instead. I adore it. These kind of greens are my thing. Scattered holographic shimmer in a very dark blue-green base. Three thin coats. 

Cooper Trooper (2nd version) came out after Charlene switched bases and generally made the line more opaque and holo and less jelly-like. This one is mind-blowing, too. You can still pick this up, as it is part of the core line. Linear holographic shimmer in a dark blue-green base. Two thin coats.

Fallen Too Deep was part of The Fall-ever Collection in 2013. It is one of Charlene's first flakie polishes, before she changed the type of base she used. Scattered holographic shimmer and gold shimmer flakes in an ochre base. Four thin coats.

Fizzy Sunkiss was only available at the launch of the Etsy store. Scattered holographic shimmer in a sheer creamsicle orange jelly base.  Four thin coats.

Forest Fairy was also only available at the launch of the brand, but I pinned for it for a few months. Back when I was pretty much the only person looking for Too Fancy Lacquer on the secondary market, an angel responded to my plea and sent it to me. Scattered holographic shimmer in a translucent forest green jelly base. Four thin coats.

Glowing With Envy was from The Summersault Collection in 2013. Again, this was with the brand's original base. Scattered holographic shimmer in a sheer lime green base. Four thin coats.

Are there any of these you wish you could still get? Any brands you collect hardcore?

This is a brand based out of Hong Kong.
