Soul Sista has 5 colors, see the coll. HERE (scroll on arrow to the polishes), and I bought them all.
All of them has a good opacity (some one-coaters) and they dry quickly and are easy to apply.
05 Mojito Green is a turquoise green (greener than on photos) with a very light golden shimmer. The finish is silky, neither shiny nor matte.
01 Chilled Orange is an orange/warm yellow cream, leaning towards a silky finish.
04 Totally Retro Nude is a warm-toned sand beige with a touch of brown and a light shimmer. Normal finish.
02 James’s Favorite Brown is a warm-toned chocolate brown with shimmer, almost leaning towards metallic.
03 Lounge Chair Affair is a coral/salmon (less red than on the photos) with golden shimmer and an almost matte finish. 
One Kiwi a Day + Banana Joe
 
From the Fruity Collection, see more HERE (scroll on arrow to the  nail polish),  I only bought two, and now afterwards I don’t understand why…
One Kiwi a day is a pale yellow-toned green with light green glitter in just the right amount, a one coater, and it dies fairly shiny and quick. 
Banana Joe is a sheer very, very pale yellow with subtle shimmer, and it looks like it’s prone to brush strokes, 2-3 coats would be OK. Dries quick with a normal shiny finish.

04 Rebelizer + 03 Peach Punk
04 Rebelizer + 03 Peach Punk
From the Rebels Collection, see more HERE ( use arrow to find the polishes) I bought 2 og the 4, the neons. They are easy to apply, dries quickly with a semi-matte finish "with a latex effect" - not sure  what that is though. They both have subtle shimmer, actually I think all 4 had..
04 Rebelizer is a  apple-lime kind of yellow-green color, difficult to describe
03 Peach Punk is a coral-peach-salmon kind of color
