Hey there! A couple of weeks ago I show you a set of three Lilypad Lacquer polishes that are exclusively available at Color4Nails. I was lucky enough to also be sent these five other Lilypad Lacquer shades that I'm sharing today. These come from a variety of collections as evidenced by the different finishes in the group. I hadn't had much experience with the Lilypad Lacquer brand until recently but I have to say, I'm sold. I have nothing but good things to say about this 5 free, Australian indie brand!
In the same vein as Glory, Grit is another flakie/glitter but its main colors are green and purple, like a sparkly mermaid. This is two coats over black.
The next polish, Roasted, is a nice transition between the flakies and the holos. At first glance, it's a dark pink-leaning nude or light brown holo but as you can see in the macro, there's some subtle flakies in there that make this a really unique polish. This is two coats plus top coat.
Here's a photo in direct, artificial light. The flakies magically come out more in direct light somehow.
The last two polishes are pure holographics. The first is Evergreen, a dark green holo with a fantastic formula. This is two coats plus top coat.
Here is Evergreen in direct, artificial light. That's a lot of holo for such a dark polish.
Lastly, we have Throb, a dark pink (almost red) holographic with the same great formula as Evergreen. Unfortunately, when I was swatching I must have been a bit impatient and wrinkled my ring finger which, of course, I didn't notice until looking at the macro shot later. This is two coats plus top coat.
Here is Throb in direct light. Gorgeous.
As I mentioned in the introduction, I'm really impressed with Lilypad Lacquer's polishes so far. As an Australian brand, it's nice that there's a Northern American stockist. You can get all these, and more, from Color4Nails.
