GLAM POLISH - UNDER THE SEA


Hello! Today, I have 4 shades from GLAM POLISH's new 'UNDER THE SEA' collection to show you. 


                                                             
A marine inspired collection featuring eight glistening crelly holos with micro glitter, glass flecks & shimmer and one holographic microglitter mix.




I’m Shore You Did - Multicolored holographic micro glitter mix in a holo base.  2 coats + topcoat.
.









Oh Whale! - Periwinkle Crelly Holo, with holo microglitter, shimmer and glass flecks.











Sealiest Thing I’ve Ever Heard - Baby Pink Crelly Holo, with holo micro glitter, shimmer and glass flecks. 2 coats + topcoat.




                                         









Are You Sea-rious? Sea-Green Crelly Holo, with holo micro glitter, shimmer and glass flecks. 2 coats + topcoat.





All were completely opaque in 2 coats. They will dry slightly textured, so if you like a super smooth finish then I suggest you do at least 2 coats of topcoat. I only did 1 and they weren't bumpy at all. My favorite is 'I'M SHORE YOU DID', which one is yours? 

The UNDER THE SEA Collection will be available Saturday August 1st @ 1 pm EDT (USA) from www.glampolish.com.au shipping to Australia, USA and France. - shipping rates to USA are $3.50 USD for the first polish and an extra $1.00 for each additional polish

PRESS SAMPLE - ALCHEMY LACQUERS' NEW SUMMER COLORS

 

Hello everyone! The wonderful Rebecca, over at ALCHEMY LACQUERS was kind enough to send me the 4 new summer shades to swatch and review. It's my first time trying this brand and I was pretty excited to! So, let's begin with the swatches, shall we?
First up is;
GILDED HIBISCUS
 Colored micro flakes with silver to gold shifting micro flakes in a clear base also with matte pink and orange neon hex glitters. Completely opaque in 2 coats, and 1 coat of topcoat. 
I tried zooming in as much as possible for the micro flakes to show.
FLIGHT OF THE FIREFLIES
A mix of blue, green, and yellow medium and small matte hex glitters in a creamy, light mint base with a touch of iridescent micro flakes.
2 coats plus topcoat.
PINK PEPPERCORN
A mix of purple, pink, coral, and orange neon matte, medium and small hex glitters in a creame, light pink base with a touch of iridescent micro flakes.
2 coats plus topcoat.





GILDED GLOWWORM
 Colored micro flakes with silver to gold shifting micro flakes in a clear base also with matte blue and green neon hex glitters.
      Completely opaque in 2 coats, and 1 coat of topcoat.

Super zoomed in to show the micro flakes better.

 


These are super pretty. I liked that even though they're different finishes, they still go so well together with coordinating colors. I thought maybe I was going to need 3 coats of the gilded colors for them to be completely opaque but surprisingly 2 coats was just enough. The crellies are super smooth and easy to apply. No fishing for glitters or dabbing to place them. Just one coat of topcoat was enough to smooth them out. I seriously love them all but my favorite is PINK PEPPERCORN. Which one is yours???


These 4 colors will be available Saturday, July 25 at 7pm.

PRESS SAMPLE - LOLLIPOP POSSE LACQUER MIDSUMMER MIDNIGHTS COLLECTION

Hello! Today I have swatches of 3 of the 6 polishes from Lollipop Posse Lacquer's newest collection called Midsummer Midnights.


The Midsummer Midnights Collection is a posse of 6 lacquers in various darker, more in-depth shades to take you into the heat of midsummer. 



This Fruit Was Bruised 

A deep, bruised burgundy/purple linear holographic.
I applied 2 coats plus topcoat.






Inside My Head 

A black jelly base that suspends a dusting of micro holographic gold glitter and multiple sizes of gold flakes
I applied 3 thin coats plus topcoat.






That's How Witch Babies Are ($9.50)

A vivid blurple crelly base with neon purple flakies and a scattered holographic effect.
I applied 2 coats plus topcoat.


I LOVED 'This Fruit Was Bruised'. The formula is just seriously amazing! It glided on like butter, it feels thick but is not, it could very well be a one coater with a slightly thicker coat. 
'Inside My Head' was ok, Formula wasn't bad just thin. It dried rather quick so 3 coats weren't a problem.
'That's How Witch Babies Are' is super pretty with all that scattered holo glitter, so sparkly!! Formula was good,  


The Midsummer Midnights Collection
Monday, July 13th, 12 noon EDT
Holographic Shades: $11
Other Shades: $9.50
Discounted Full Collection: $57 with Free US Shipping

Hello again beautiful souls! I'm really excited to start blogging and bring you beautiful nail art and gorgeous swatches for you to enjoy!
Today, I have  Top Shelf  Lacquer's newest collection releasing July 15th and it's called "Tropical Cocktail Paradise"
This is a vibrant bright crème collection consisting of 6 colors that all have iridescent micro flakes of a contrasting shimmer.

I applied 3 coats plus topcoat.

A turquoise blue creme with gold iridescent micro flakes.
I applied 2 coats plus topcoat.

A bold blue creme with pink iridescent micro flakes.
I applied 2 coats plus topcoat.

This collection is beautiful. Formula was amazing to me. Green Iguana was a bit thin so I did 3 coats but I didn't have a problem with that since these dry rather quick.
