Bluebird Lacquer Dark Matter and Matte Effects Topper Collection Swatches and Review Part 1

Bluebird Lacquer is going matte in a big way! The Matte Effects Topper Collection just launched with a variety duochrome flake finishes that also double as amazing polishes on their own. And there is the first of a series of great, opaque matte bases. I have tons of pics so I've split the post in two - let's get started!

Dark Matter is a matte black polish that covers in a single coat. It dries nice and quickly so it will be fantastic for nail art. It does show flaws in the nail bed - I have some damage from not soaking gel long enough - so a ridge filler would be good for those circumstances.

Dropping Hints has terracotta brown flakes that shine with a turquoise-to-magenta duochrome shift, along with iridescent multichrome flakes. I am showing it here in four thin coats on its own. All of these work beautifully as subtle neutrals.

Nudge Nudge has pink-to-gold duochrome microflakes, shown here in four coats on its own. This would make a lovely French mani shade.

The Matte Effects Toppers are all available now in the Bluebird Lacquer store. Stay tuned for three more of the toppers coming up next! Have you ever tried a matte effects topper? Would you wear it on its own or prefer it over a dark base?
