Laquerlicious Unity Swatch Spam

Hello readers!  I gave a sneak peak of my nail mail from Laquerlicious Unity on facebook a couple weeks ago.  To start of the weekend I have a very picture heavy post featuring these six awesome polishes.  Bonus points for Laquerlicious, we both make the same purposeful typo in our interpretations of 'lacquer'.  I'm pretty sure you guys are more interested in polish than spelling though so let's get to the swatches!

Lady Liberty


Lady Liberty is a minty aqua creme with various shapes of small gold and copper glitter.  The formula was great.  It went opaque in two coats and dried quite smoothly.  This polish dries with a waxy finish so you'll have to add a top coat if a glossy shine is more your style.



Photos show two coats of Lady Liberty with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight.  I think this polish represents its inspiration perfectly.

Supreme Queen


Supreme Queen is a dusty blue creme just packed with flecks and small glitter in multiple shades of blue, purple and silver.  Because of all this glitter this polish does dry with a somewhat rough finish so you'll need to use a thicker top coat to smooth everything out.  This pigment packed polish only takes two coats to become opaque and dries with an almost matte finish.



Photos show two coats of Supreme Queen with one coat of Seche Vite under a mix of fluorescent and incandescent lighting.  I love flecked polishes and this one is no different.  I have no issue using a thicker top coat if it means this is the finish that I get.  I also love that despite being packed with glitter this polish is soft, shimmery and delicate.

Divine Doll


Divine Doll is a shimmery purple creme packed with purple flecks, blue flecks and small copper hexes.  The end result is a shimmer flecked finish that looks delicate despite being packed with glitter.  This polish does dry a bit uneven so I just used a thicker top coat to smooth it out.  Application was easy and it became opaque after two coats.

Diamond Diva


Diamond Diva is....yes, another glitter packed shimmery creme polish.  It's one of my favorite finishes.  I couldn't choose which ones to buy so I bought almost all the different ones she had.  This one features a bright magenta creme base packed with fine pink, blue and purple glitter.  It also has some larger iridescent hexes and squares.  It took two coats to become opaque but dried a little bit uneven.  I just used a thicker top coat to make everything nice and smooth.

Teal Glaze


Now for something a little different from the previous glitter containing cremes.  Teal Glaze is a dark teal jelly polish with lots of fine teal litter and a sprinkling of fine fuchsia glitter.  The result is a squishy jelly finish with glitter throughout that catches the light.  It took three coats to become opaque and dried smoothly.



Pictures show three coats of Teal Glaze with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat under a mix of fluorescent and incandescent lighting.  This polish is really pretty and a great option if you love dark vampy colours.  I found that outside the jelly base appeared like a rich deep teal and in indoor lighting it looks like a blackened teal (like in the pictures).

Peacock Tail


Last but not least I had to try a full coverage glitter.  I just couldn't resist the teal goodness.  Peacock tail is packed with teal holographic glitter in a range of sizes.  The result is a micro-dimensional glitter with predominant flashes of blue and green and a rainbow shimmer in sunlight.  It only took two coats to become opaque and dried far more smoothly than I was expecting.  It only took one coat of Seche Vite to smooth it out.

Conclusion

I am really loving these polishes.  The flecked cremes are so unique and the full coverage glitter was so easy to apply and get opaque.  My personal favorites from these six polishes are Supreme Queen, Lady Liberty and Peacock Tail.  If some of these polishes caught your eye they are all available in the Laquerlicious Unity Etsy shop.  A few of them are even on sale.  You can also check out the Laquerlicious facebook page for promos and some great swatches.  I can't wait to see what comes from this indie maker in the future.
