My only comment hun is Bellas Vampire is not black, its a dark burgundy plum, so if someone wanted black that's not going to cover it, ts a lovely colour and I'd def say get it, but I'd add black too :)

My Forbidden Love is a beautiful colour (one of my most popular) so I'd definitely get it but it's a deep burgundy/plum so you might want more purple sort of purple too if you know what I mean lol. I find Starburst my most popular & it looks fab with Vegas nights over the top or layered with Bella's Vampire to make more of a cadbury's purple. Hth xx

my forbidden love is a stunning colour but its a dark red not purple, night reflection is a very popular purple that you might like, here is a pic , I am sure you will find someway to buy more colours soon enough, who needs food anyway :lol:

You could use bellas vampire as your purple. Then you can get black shadow for your black.
Although for my purple I got Starburst. It's a bright/light one with a light shimmer but looks amazing and deep over black shadow! Layer up and get 2 colours with 1 ;)

Quite good compilation.
For black I've got Black Shadow, and when it comes to Hot Rod Red beware it's kind of brownish red, frankly I don't like it as I wanted very classic one. Besides I think to start with 1 red is enough, you'd be better off getting some other colour instead. Maybe dark grey for the Autumn? Fashionably Slate is awesome :)

Sorry to contradict but hot rod red is a actually their true classic red as my gelish educator advised and they use it as their main red in competitions , are you sure you mean hot rod red as my bottle defo has no signs of brown,

I would say its the best red to go for if you only went for one

You could maybe not get shake till you samba as this is more of a summer colour and sadly ours has ended :(

Izzy Wizzy is a great glitter, it totally changes some colours giving your more options. I know everyone's clients are different but it's defo my most popular.

I'd say good choices.

Bella's vampire is my all time fave.

I use little princesses and then sheek white for French which I like better than sheek white and simple sheer.

It's so hard to narrow it down! Depends on the type of clients you're likely to have but if I had to choose i'd maybe not order shake it til you samba yet. It's a fab bright pink but seeing as we're going into autumn/winter I'd go for something darker if it were me, gossip girl is still bright enough for anyone who wants a nice bold pink xx

I also use hot rod red as my 'pillar box red'. It's a really classic colour and I live it :). It's almost identical to OPI's big apple red :)
