Nova is a discontinued polish but can be described as a medium royal fuchsia-purple tinted translucent base packed with dark and light pink glitter.

Alegra is stunning, a deep pink with hot pink flashes, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats.

Nova is a glitter, I think my bottle has suffered a little with being sat on the shelf, it was quite tricky to get any glitters, I did shake the bottle vigorously for several minutes, its a pretty good formula for a glitter, no running or pooling but took three coats, I'm also using a peel off base coat because glitter is a pain to remove, this doesnt dry that textured, not like a pixie dust at all, so one coat of top coat would work fine.
