Laquerlicious Review

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good Valentine's Day! I didn't celebrate really, my beau's mom is visiting and we decided to celebrate this weekend instead. Today I have some swatches from Laquerlicious. Michelle was kind enough to send me three of her polishes to try and show you so away we go!

First up is Garden Pansy, which I was unable to find a listing for on the Etsy shop, so it may be part of a new collection. I layered 2 coats over American Apparel Dynasty but it was probably buildable alone in two coats. This had a purple base with purple, blue, and magenta glitters in it. My only complaint about this was the smell: it smelled like a nail salon, which is bearable to others but it caught me off guard so I thought it was important to mention.

Next is Pink Granite, which has black, pink, and white glitters in a clear base. There's a couple shades of pink glitter in it too, which made it unique for me since I've seen quite a few black, white, and pink glitter combinations. I layered it over Cherimoya Blockbuster and it was really easy to work with. I used the typical dabbing application for indie glitters but didn't have to fish for glitter at all. I really loved this and next time I think I'll wear it over a pastel creme!

Finally is Washed Denim which is the blue complement to Pink Granite, almost. This seemed to have a greater variety of white glitters and the black glitter was finer than in Pink Granite but I really liked this color scheme. I layered it over Julep Popova. Important to note: there's blue ROUND glitter in this, which everyone seems to be really excited for lately - myself included. You can see a few of them towards the tip of my ring finger! I loved this combination of glitter and application was superb, this is just one easy coat applied like normal creme nail polish and I didn't really have to push anything around for the look below.

There you have it! I was really impressed by this brand overall and plan to purchase again soon. Laquerlicious is available on Etsy at $8.50 for a full size bottle. She has lots of polishes on sale and also a couple to benefit pitbull charities for $15. You can also follow her on Facebook or Instagram, her username is CreativeNailChick.
