Bee's Knees Lacquer Crescent City Collection Part 2 Swatches and Review

Bee's Knees Lacquer has just released the Crescent City Collection Part 2! This builds on last month's release with more iridescent multichrome and duochrome jelly polishes that can be worn on their own or as toppers. Let's have a closer look!

First of all, I will start off with some general information, because the formula and idea behind these are similar. Three are more opaque on their own, and the rest are definitely sheer jelly type polishes that will show whatever you have on underneath, whether it be bare nail or a base color. I wore all of them in four thin coats for consistency, but a few, All Is Possible, The Fallen, and The Under King could be opaque in two or three depending on your coat thickness. All of them had a medium-fast dry time. These have a type of shimmer that definitely works best with very thin coats and letting them dry between - I've noticed iridescent shimmers like this (regardless of brand) can be prone to bubbling if you use thicker coats, if you use a slow-drying base with treatment oils, or if your hands are very warm. Have patience for the best and most shimmery effect! And I apologize for all my nail damage - I've had a lot of issues with white spots on my nails for the last year. 

Bee's Knees Lacquer All Is Possible is the gift with purchase polish. Add something to your cart and click the listing at the top of the site and you can have this polish at no additional charge! Last month's gift with purchase was also offered for sale this month, so hopefully this one will be back if people like it! It is a lavender jelly with green-to-blue iridescent duochrome shimmer.
