Bee's Knees Lacquer American Horror Story III Collection Swatches and Review

I've had these pictures ready for ages but was thwarted by work, travel, and bad internet connections! Nevertheless, they are just in time for Bee's Knees Lacquers' awesome Black Friday sale! The American Horror Story III Collection, on this post will be 30% off, along with all previous releases. There will be a new quad and mystery polishes released, which will not be included in the sale. Let's check them out!

Bee's Knees Lacquer American Horror Story III Collection

First up, notes on formula, since these are all pretty similar. The dry time is medium-to-fast, and each is smooth and easy to use. Bee's Knees uses a wide, rounded brush that works well for both narrow and wide nail beds as the curved end gets close to the cuticle line with no mess. I love that!

Bee's Knees Lacquer 1984 is a sheer turquoise with red-to-green multichrome shimmer. I wore it in four thin coats on its own, and one coat over Apocalypse 2019.  It works great on its own if you love sheers or as a topper!

Price $12 or $100 for the full set of 9 before sale discount

Bee's Knees Lacquer's American Horror Story III Collection is all available now, but will be included in the Black Friday sale beginning at noon EST, for 30% off! That means you will be able to pick up the full set for only $70! I can't recommend the brand highly enough for the creative finishes, nice brushes, and good formulas. I was away for the better part of a month and wore these while traveling, and even with no base coat and the abuse of dragging luggage on and off trains, each one lasted 5-6 days on me, which is far above my normal wear of 1-3 days. Do you have some you want to pick up?
