Liquid Lacquer - Swatches and Review

**I purchased these polishes myself, at a discounted rate, in exchange for a full and honest review**

Hey guys! Today I have for you a long overdue review of some wonderful polishes! I purchased the Blogger Review Pack from Liquid Lacquer. How it works is, you get to choose two polishes to review and Melissa chooses two. At $20, I thought it was a great deal, so I was super thrilled when she accepted me!

First, here are the two polishes I chose to review. Her site is down for maintenance at the moment so bear with me for polish descriptions - I'll do my best!

A Calm Does Not Suit Me is a white crelly with assorted sized hexes in shades of blue, gray and periwinkle. I layered 2 coats over Milani White on the Spot, but it can be layered on its own in about 3 coats to reach full opacity.

Next up is Collide Into You. This was the one I was MOST excited about trying. I saw Stephanie's swatches on A Little Polish, and I was sold. These colors together seriously pop! This is 3 easy coats of Collide Into You with no undies! Wonderful formula, and no issues with the glitters either. This one is definitely a winner in my book.

This slightly shimmery teal blue base is SO beautifully bright, pictures don't do it justice. It reminds me of ocean water. And we all know I love dots, so...this is a match made in heaven.

Lastly, the two Melissa chose for me to review. These looked pretty in the bottle, but I wasn't sure if I'd be completely sold on them once I got them on. I was so very wrong! Check out The Rain Song. It's a stunning sky blue with a scattered holographic effect. I still had very, very slight VNL at 3 coats, so I did an extra to be safe, but most people can get away with 3 (unless your nails are as stained as mine are). I wasn't sure if topcoat would dull the holographic effect, so these photos are sans topcoat.

And, last but certainly not least, Dancing Days. It's a berry pink holo that seems like more of a linear holo to me. I'll be honest, I'm not sure how to tell exactly which is which. But this one definitely had a much stronger holographic effect. I was seriously stunned when I got this one in the sun. I think I sat there for a minute just staring. Again, this is 4 coats, no topcoat, but unstained nails can get away with 3 no problem.

Simply amazing! The formula on these two holos was lovely, if not a bit sheer. It gave me no problems, though - went on like butter! :) It dried fast too, so even though I did 4 coats, it took no time at all!

  2. I love all the colors! That last purple is such a fantastic shade, and I'm really loving milky shades with glitter like the first one. :-)
