Hi girls! How was your weekend so far? Mine was busy, as usual, one of the impediments of being a wife/working mom/blogger I guess haha
Well today I have a whole new bunch of Lacquer Lust pretties to share with you. If you haven't seen my previous Lacquer Lust posts, I strongly encourage you to do so by clicking this link ;-)
The Glitters :
Five o’clock Shadow, Babycakes, Cosmic Chaos
Five o’clock Shadow is a mix of matte black hex glitters in a pale grey jelly base. I really love how deliciously yummy it looks, reminds me of cookies and cream lol. Formula was a bit sheer but nice and even. I used two coats below but depending on your coverage preferences, you might want to go for three.
Babycakes is a soft baby pink jelly base with a rainbow of matte pearly pastel glitters, hexes and squares. This is not at all the type of shades I usually go for but it's perfectly well balanced and I'm sure that if you're a pastel lover you'll totally dig this one. Formula was also on the sheer side but didn't give me any trouble. This is three thin coats plus topcoat.
Cosmic Chaos is a black jelly packed with different sizes of copper and gold glitters that have a subtle green blue color shift. Now this is something I would rock anytime haha. I didn't really know what to expect in terms of intensity on its own, probably a three coats so I decided to layer it over black. This is two very thin coats plus topcoat.
Purple Reign is a rich warm purple jelly shimmer thermal. I absolutely LOVE this one! Darker when cold (tips) and lighter when warm (nail beds), the thermal effect is kind of subtle on this one but still visible enough. I used three thin coats plus topcoat.
Eternal Bliss, Sky’s the Limit, Sunkissed
Eternal Bliss is a very pale grey, almost white, jelly with a subtle linear holo effect. I haven't had the occasion to swatch any of these in the sun (come on on it's mid June already, where's the sun?!) so you'll have to imagine them stronger. This is two, streak free, even, coats.
Sky’s the Limit is a baby blue linear holo. The holo is stronger here than in Eternal Bliss, even if I wished it'd translated better in my swatches... Formula was more creamy as well and you're looking at two coats plus topcoat.
Sunkissed is a muted orange linear holo, definitely stronger than the other two. I've been loving oranges more and more and this one totally rocks! Formula was even and dried to a glossy finish, requiring two coats for complete coverage.
Shimmer Holographics :
Dark and mysterious shimmers with a very subtle duochrome as well as holo particles, mimicking a galaxy nails effect. Formula was sheer on all three shades but built up to full opacity and saturation with three thin coats.
Orion : teal shimmer with a slight purple color shift and holo particles.
Taurus : coarse green shimmer with a slight blue color shift and holo particles.
Venus : blue shimmer with a slight purple color shift and holo particles.
