Index to pinky are: Color Club Blue Light, Orly Snowcone, China Glaze Secret Periwinkle, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue
Color Club Blue Light - This isn't periwinkle at all, it's a straight-up bright pastel blue, but I thought some might want comparison of it.
Orly Snowcone - This is a sweet, slightly-purple toned blue. I'd definitely put it in the periwinkle family. It's super opaque, and two coats are shown here.
China Glaze Secret Periwinkle - Is pretty sheer, and quite purple-leaning when put up next to Snowcone. on it's own, it's such a perfect example of periwinkle that it's not even funny. I love this one.
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue - Is a bit darker and brighter than the others but it has that gorgeous purple tone to it. I'd call this more a cornflower.
Index to pinkie these are: Barielle U-Concrete-Me, Pure Ice Kiss Me Here, China Glaze Recycle, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Cement
Barielle U-Concrete-Me - This and the Pure Ice are about the same depth but is more blue-toned than any of the others. Three coats are perfect coverage and glossy even without a topcoat.
Pure Ice Kiss Me Here - This is a slightly-deeper-than-midtone grey that is quite neutral. It's slightly less pigmented than the Barielle and the Sally Hansen. It's a great inexpensive grey!
China Glaze Recycle - Recycle is midtoned and sort of on the warm side when put up next to these other shades. I think it's quite flattering for all skintones and might be the great choice for a warm-toned person.
Sally Hansen Wet Cement - This is obviously quite a bit lighter than any of the other shades, it's also pretty neutral in tone, neither too cool nor too warm.
Index to pinky are: Orly Gumdrop, Essie Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, OPI Hey Get in Lime
Orly Gumdrop - this looks like mint till you get it near other mints, then it looks blue. Check below for a comparison to China Glaze For Audrey, they're very similar.
Essie Mint Candy Apple - the application on this is quite opaque just like Gumdrop, but it's much more green and drastically lighter.
China Glaze Re-fresh Mint - This is about the same depth as the Essie but it's a bit more yellow. This is probably the mintiest of all the mints here.
OPI Hey Get in Lime - this is so sheer, and it's the only jelly-based shade here. It's got the most yellow of all as well. It's my least favorite of all of these. To be honest, I'm not incredibly fond of it.

Light as Air, from the China Glaze Up & Away collection (view the rest of my swatches here) is one of the ones I didn't originally buy, but I couldn't resist it. I felt it might be too much like China Glaze Agent Lavender, but that was just my denial talking. Light as Air is a dusty, putty-toned lilac, and if you're into the taupes and dusky, slightly-off shades, you will love this. Additionally, if you're a fan of opaque pastels, you'll adore this. I happen to love both dusky and pastel shades, so I'm thrilled with this polish. This is hands-down the best application I've ever encountered for a pastel polish. I just couldn't be happier with this purchase.

China Glaze Drama Queen with flash- discontinued
China Glaze Stella with flash- Available at Transdesign, 8ty8 Beauty
A few months ago when China Glaze's Retro Diva Collection first debuted, Stella looked freakishly similar to the discontinued Drama Queen, which is one of my very favorite shades. Since my bottle of Drama Queen is half empty, I snatched up Stella in a nanosecond and have since found that while it will serve nicely as a backup of my beloved Drama Queen, there are slight difference. So I've done a few comparison shots for you.
