Wildflower Lacquer Hella Handmade Creations December 2021


Wildflower Lacquer Painting the Roses Red is an amaranth red jelly with holo microflakes. I wore it in four thin coats for maximum depth, but it covers easily in two coats. It had a great formula and dry time. This one is super blingy!

Price: $13 / 300 cap

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Le Bon Ton Collection Swatches and Review

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Le Bon Ton Collection just released and you can pick these polishes up in the Facebook group The Octosquad. The quad is inspired by 19th century fashion plates - I helped Dave out with the name, which was a term used in the 19th century to describe fashionable society - it meant good form. I feel like Roaring 20s themes are popular right now, but this is the equivalent from a 75 years before, and had similar darker undertones, including rigid class hierarchies and exclusivity, along with the lighter aspects of fashion and ornamentation. There are probably reasons these themes are coming back in the year 2021! Let's check them out...

Music City Beauty The Prugly Collection Swatches and Review

It's still a little warm here, but the fall polish collections have started and I am here for it! I would say the fall and holiday color stories are the most up my alley. Music City Beauty The Prugly Collection is a set of four fall colors that plays on the pretty-ugly label folks often give complex colors. For me though, these are just plain pretty! I find these sorts of colors very flattering for yellow/tan complexions and they work well on my cool yellow undertone. Let's have a closer look at these!

Supermoon Lacquer Ready to Launch II Collection Swatches and Review

Supermoon Lacquer has just released the 8 piece Ready to Launch II Collection, a successor to the brand's debut, plus a special 5-Year Anniversary Polish. If you have not already tried Supermoon Lacquer, the brand offers really unique polishes in the indie sphere. The polishes are more opaque than most indies and can double as stamping polishes, and the mixes have many complex elements. The polishes all dry quickly and are not thick in consistency, meaning they are the ideal balance between opacity and texture. There are lots of shades for lovers of jewel tones, which is my favorite color type.  There is a pre-order open through July 14. Let's have a look at these beauties!
