Spotted, Hauled...a couple, & Swatched - Orly Surreal and Secret Society Collections

**all items purchased by me

I thought today would be a good day to share the couple of polishes that I've picked up from the 2 most recent releases from Orly.  The first is from the fall collection - Surreal.  The second is from the new holiday collection - Secret Society.

Let's get started with the Fall 2013 Surreal collection's display:
 I ended up purchasing 2 of the polishes at 2 different times.
Digital Glitter (which I actually already showed in an Ulta haul but figured I would include it again)
Pixie Powder, which I purchased from Sally's Beauty Supply (at the same time as 2 polishes from China Glaze's Monsters Ball collection)

Now for the latest collection, Secret Society for Holiday 2013.  I actually saw the ad for this collection on the back of the most recent Nail It magazine and then saw it in Ulta just a couple days ago.  I haven't been to Sally's yet to see if it's there as well.

~the gold glitter actually has some teeny tiny bar glitters in it
~the blue and black shades are also glitter shades...I really wish I had gotten some close-ups

I only purchased one polish from the collection (so far).  
Masked Ceremony
And swatches:
 Digital Glitter, Pixie Powder, Masked Ceremony
~2 coats each~
~Digital Glitter is has pink/purple duo-chrome tendencies along with pretty small magenta and maybe taupe(?) hex glitter; there's also a spattering of small silvery square glitters in a clear base
~Pixie Powder is a pretty pink-lilac purple sheer fine glitter topper
~Masked Ceremony is a fairly pigmented gunmetal gray that has enough shimmer it almost reminds me of a foil; it's also got small magenta hex glitters and more of the silvery square glitter (quite a bit more squares than Digital Glitter).  There's enough pigment to this one that if you're careful, you might be able to get a way with one coat

I'm not sure if I'll be getting any more polishes from the Secret Society collection or not.  If I do it would probably be the blue and gold ones, but I'm waiting until I see swatches of these before I decide.  There was just something about the square glitters that drew me to Masked Ceremony (and I had my 20% off coupon in my purse) that made me get it before any swatches.

Did you get any polishes from the Surreal collection when it first came out?  Are you planning on getting any from the Secret Society collection?  Do you like that Orly is using little square glitters in some of their polishes?
