Finger Lickin' Lacquer Washed Out Collection Swatches & Review Part I

Hello readers,
Today I have half of Finger Lickin' Lacquer's new Washed Out collection to show you. This collection features six bleached neon jellies. They all come scented but there's always the option of getting the same colours unscented if scented polishes aren't your thing.

Here I Go 


Here I Go is a periwinkle blue jelly with a fruit punch scent. The formula on this one was a little tricky to work with. It applied very easily but because it was so sheer it took extra care not to have a streaky finish. I was able to even it out with two coats. The scent is very light and sweet. It is quite pleasant and not overpowering. Photos show two coats of Here I Go over two coats of Sally Hansen White On with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural lighting.





Octopus


Octopus is a bright purple jelly with a grape scent. Though it looks quite purple in the bottle I found it leaned more pink when worn over white. The formula on this one was easy to work with. I also had less of an issue with streaks than I did with Here I Go. Again, the scent was subtle and sweet. Photos show two coats of Octopus over two coats of Sally Hansen White On with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural lighting.




Golden Hair


Golden Hair is a bright yellow jelly with a pina colada scent. I had a hard time capturing the true brightness of this one. It is even more neon in real life. The formula on this one really surprised me. Yellows have a reputation for being streaky but this one had the best formula of the three jellies in this post. Like the others, the scent was light and sweet. Photos show two coats of Golden Hair over two coats of Sally Hansen White on with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural lighting.




Conclusion

I'm not usually one to go for really light polishes. They're just no my style. However, I can definitely see myself using these a lot in nail art. They'd be perfect for lead lighting, gradients and so much more. I think they'd look really cool layered over colours other than white as well and could add some squishiness to a creme polish.
