  1. #7 – Red Rose – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  2. #349 – Garnet Red – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  3. #56 – Pumpkin Orange – – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  4. #350 – Butterscotch – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  5. #361 – Cat Eyes Yellow – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  6. #280 – Lime Rind Green – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  7. #109 – Cavalado Green – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  8. #234 – Turquoise Blue/Green – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  9. #113 – Sky Blue – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  10. #270 – Chesapeake Blue – Ultrafine Transparent Glitter
  11. #24 – Royal Wink Blue – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
  12. #13 – Plum Pink (Purple) – Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
