Bee's Knees Lacquer The Thirteen Collection Part 1 Swatches and Review

Bee's Knees Lacquer is launching Part 1 of the new Thirteen Collection on March 28, along with a new base coat. This half includes six polishes - the other six in Part 2 will be available March 27. A thirteen polish, Manon Blackbeak, is already available in the store. The series is inspired by The Thirteen from Throne of Glass. In addition, the launch intersects with the brand's Customer Appreciation Sale, and even the new shades will be 15% off, along with the whole store. Bonus!

Bee's Knees Lacquer Asterin is a royal blue jelly with copper-to-green multichrome Unicorn Pee shimmer. I wore it in four thin coats and it had a perfect, medium-fast drying formula. This is a jelly so layer it over a creme polish if you want complete opacity. It is inspired by the character of the same name.

Price: $14

Bee's Knees Lacquer Edda is a white jelly with gold-to-green UP sibling iridescent multichrome ghost flakes. I wore it in four thin coats and it had a great, medium-fast drying formula. I will note this polish is completely non streaky so you can layer it as sheer or opaque as you want. For 100 percent opacity, I recommend it over a white base polish. It is inspired by one of Manon's shadow scouts.

Bee's Knees Lacquer Faline is a pale spring green jelly with green-to-blue shimmer. I wore this in four thin coats and it had a nice, medium-fast-drying formula. It will likely cover in two or three coats for most people. It is inspired by one of the green-eyed demon twins.

Bee's Knees Lacquer Imogen is a sheer teal jelly with red-to-green multichrome iridescent UP ghost flakes. I wore it in four thin coats and it had a nice, fast-drying formula. As you can see, this is a sheer polish, so I recommend layering over a base shade if you want full coverage. It takes on a more green-hued color over my pigmented nail beds.

Bee's Knees Lacquer Sorrel is a gray taupe with magenta-to-gold multichrome shimmer. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will cover. It has a nice, medium-drying formula. This polish is described as the stone to Manon's Ice and Asterin's Fire.

Bee's Knees Lacquer Thea is a root-beer brown sheer jelly with gold-green-to-blue multichrome iridescent UP ghost flakes. I wore it in four thin coats and it had a nice formula. This will require a base color to be completely opaque. The flakes have a ton of fire here! It is inspired by the color of Thea's and Kaya's eyes.

Finally we have Bee's Knees Lacquer Spectre, a sticky base coat. This dries really quickly and glossy on its own and has worked wonderfully under multiple brands of nail polish for me. Bee's Knees regular polishes already last much longer than most for me without base coat, but this product makes them even better. It also does not bald under any polishes on the first coat over the base, which is nice.

Price: $6.50

The Thirteen Collection Part 1 will launch on February 28 at noon EST, along with the base coat. I love the interesting colors and effects of this collection and quite a few of the polishes were completely unlike anything in my nail polish stash. I particularly love Asterin for its slightly purple-leaning, rich blue base and UP sparkle, and Thea for the fire of its flakes over the warm brown base. Do you have a favorite?
