Aliquid Lacquer and Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Destination Duo Venice Swatches and Review

This month's Destination Duo is a combined effort between Alison of Aliquid Lacquer and Julie of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer. The inspiration is a photo that Alison took of Venice, and the polishes pick up on the soft pastel tones of a building along the canal, along with lose glitter that conjures the flowers on the bridge. Let's have a closer look...

Aliquid Lacquer Canal Couture is a peach pastel with blue and gold microflakes. It is worn here in three very thin coats and it spreads nicely and self-levels. Aliquid Lacquer is a brand I have been buying from for a long time and I love how she does microflakes and shimmers.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Gondolier's Garden is a lilac with copper microflakes, shown here in three very thin coats. This dries quickly to a satin and is worn with top coat in these pictures.

The set also comes with a packet of nail art glitter for use on the nail - this is not for adding to the polish, but rather sticking on the tacky layer before it dries.

These are available as a set in both shops for $16 plus shipping. They are a pastel lover's dream! I love the use of subtle flakes and the extra glitters to customize as you choose.
