Today I have the winter release from Reverie Nail Lacquer to share with you. This collection features four core shades along with one limited edition polish. There's a mix of colours and finishes which I love to see in any collection. Let's check out the swatches!
Firethorn features a deep red jelly base filled with flecked shimmer and red, pink and blue glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes. It took three coats to become opaque. The formula was good though I did have to do a little bit of dabbing to get the largest dot glitter where I wanted them. One top coat is enough if you have flatter nail beds, but if you have more curved nail beds like mine you'll want a second to smooth out those larger glitters. Photos show three coats of Firethorn with two coats of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.
Smokestack features a taupe jelly based will with copper, pink and blue flecked shimmer. It is on the sheer size but layered to opacity in three coats. Make sure to watch for sheer patches. I had to do a tiny bit of dabbing to ensure even opaque coverage. This polish dries smoothly with a satin finish. Photos show three coats of Smokestack with one coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.
Moon In Sagittarius
Moon In Sagittarius features a royal blue jelly base filled with silver and blue glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes along with a sprinkling of tiny red shred glitter. This shade took three coats to becomg opaque and required some light dabbing for jelly spots without glitter to ensure even coverage. A single coat of topcoat leaves a relatively smooth finish but a second coat is required for a perfect glossy surface.

Black Ice is the limited edition shade in this release. It features a black jelly base filled with flecked silver shimmer and a sprinkling of translucent blue hex glitters. This shade is sheer but buildable and took three coats to become opaque. I did notice somelight shrinking at tips while drying so make sure to wrap tips with at least one coat of colour as well as top coat. This polish dries to a satin finish so a glossy topcoat is a good idea if you want a shiny finish. Photos show three coats of Black Ice with one coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.
Winter Blossoms features a lilac jelly base with a good dose or pink, yellow, purple and blue glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes along with a soft flecked shimmer. This shade makes me think of colourful Easter eggs. The formula was easy to work with and I didn't have to do any dabbing with the glitters. It is a bit sheer though. You can still see my nail line peaking through, though the glitters break it up so it's not as obvious. Like the other glitters in this collection, one coat of top coat will smooth things out for the most part but a second coat is required for a perfect glossy finish. Photos show three coats of Winter Blossoms with two coats of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.
If you love Reverie's signature glitter bombs then there's definitely polishes in this collection for you. For those who want something a little more toned down, the shimmers are quite lovely. My surprise personal favorite is Smokestack. It's a surprise favorite because it's the most neutral of the bunch (I usually go for purples and blues) and taupe isn't a colour I'm usually drawn to. It's very unique and I can't think of another taupe shimmer like it. The winter collection will be releasing on February 24, 2016. You can find Reverie Nail Lacquer on
