Super Black Lacquers 3rd Degree is a rich, blood-orange with a golden shimmer and an almost metallic finish. Application was amazing with this polish. Does that ever happen to you? Where you use a polish and you think “Wow. This is dreamy.” LOL. Well that happened with this one.

 FUN Lacquer Christmas 2013 Wishing Star007

How lucky I am to be able to show you some FUN Lacquer today!! I’d been admiring the Princess Collection from afar so when I was offered the chance to review the Christmas collection I jumped at it. I’m pleased with every single one of them! Let’s take a look! 

FUN Lacquer Wishing Star a yellow thermal polish with gold shimmer. A bright sunshine yellow in it’s cold state, and it’s an icy pale yellow with shifts from gold, to green to blue when it’s warm. Three coats needed with this one for opacity. I couldn’t resist showing off Wishing Star with Decentber tips. Such an unconventional french, right?

Yellow gold

Nostalgia swatch for blog0

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia, 2 coats  An incredibly unique Ultra Chrome effect that gives this polish a festive green, gold, and red color shift. My swatches really do not do this justice, in fact I’m not extremely excited about these swatches because the polish is really just so much more amazing in person.

20131113 glam polish tempestarii swatch2

My swatches today are from the upcoming Cast a Spell Collection, which will be available for pre-order in Australia on 21 November and available internationally later in the month. All swatches are two coats of polish and one coat of G&G HK Girl Topcoat. These are amazing, so let’s get started…

I’ll begin with my favorite. Glam Polish Tempestarii is a deep purple scattered holo. It’s gorgeous and the formula was so easy to control.

SAUL!

 Ob 218fc4 cadillacquer better call saul 1

I’m excited I can finally show you Cadillacquer Breaking Bad Collection! I love Breaking Bad and unpacking these polishes and finding out their names felt like Christmas! Even my boyfriend stayed throughout the whole process just to find out all the nail polish names :D Anyway…

Better Call Saul! bright blue shimmer with holographic particles. It applied easily and is a bit streaky but nothing major. I’ve applied two coats and topcoat.

This is ulta3 English Rose. ulta3 is a great little Australian drugstore brand of polishes that have (generally) excellent formulas and are incredibly cheap – $2 a polish. It’s a lovely red jelly full of gold microglitter. 3 smooth coats, delicious!

Highlighter

Unlike Essie Funky Limelight, there’s no green in Celtic Sun at all so it’s not quite as perfectly highlighter yellow but it’s close (and it’s definitely a neon, I’m not sure what your computer screen is showing this color as but it’s a neon yellow).

OPI Into The Night 2

Into The Night is a bright shimmery blue. The shimmer in this is a tiny bit frosty but not in a bad way. I really like this one, it practically glows! It’s like a much brighter version of OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue. The formula was okay, not my favorite. It was sheer but it builds up nicely, I used 3 coats for the photos below. I would recommend wrapping the tips of your nails with this one, you can tell if you don’t. For those that have no idea what that means you just run the brush along the tip of your nail!

Bikini2

Dior Bikini is a dusty spicy orange creme that applies smoothly and is opaque in two coats. No issues to report. Shown in various lighting with two coats and a top coat.

Color Club Sparkle and Soar 2

Sparkle and Soar is a beautiful golden orange! I love love love this one, for some reason I always grab for orange polishes like this during the summer. Usually I gravitate towards a couple of Zoya polishes but this might take their place! The formula was nice, a little sheer though. I used 3 coats for the photos.
