Lucky 13 Lacquer Derby Girls Do It Better! Collection Swatches & Review

Lucky 13 Lacquer Derby Girls Do It Better

Hello readers,
Today I have a new collection from Lucky 13 Lacquer to share with you.  These three thermal shades were inspired by Vancouver, Washington Misfits Of Mutiny Roller Derby team and $1 from each bottle purchased is donated to them.  Let's take a look at swatches.

Misfits Of Mutiny


Misfits of Mutiny features a deep blackened burgundy base that changes to a deep red when warmed up.  It has a subtle blue shimmer and a sprinkling of silver holo micro shreds.  The formula was easy to work with and took two coats to become opaque.  The transition is a more subtle one and ends up looking gradient-esque.  If vampy colours are your thing then this shade is for you.  This polish dried to a waxy finish so a glossy top coat is recommended for shine.  Photos show two coats of Misfits Of Mutiny with one coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.

Shock Treatment


Shock Treatment features a deep chocolate brown base that changes to a medium mauve leaning pink when warmed up.  It also has a sprinkling of blue and silver micro shreds.  The formula on this shade was a bit thick and I did have to be careful to avoid dragging.  The cold brown colour was opaque in two coats but the warm pink colour did let my nail line peak through.  If your hands run warm you may want to add a third coat.  This shade also dried with a waxy finish and benefits from a glossy top coat.  Photos show two coats of Shock Treatment with one coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.

Dark And Stormy


Dark And Story features a deep grey leaning navy base that changes to a dusty blue when warmed up it.  It also has a soft blue shimmer along with holo silver micro shreds.  The formula was the same as Misfits Of Mutiny; easy to work with, opaque in two coats and dries to a waxy finish.  Like Shock Treatment, I found the warm state was a bit more sheer than the cold state, so a third coat is recommended if your hands are often warm.  Photos show two coats of Dark And Stormy with one coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

My personal favorite from this collection is Dark And Stormy. Not surprising since it's a blue. However, Misfits Of Mutiny surprised me as one that I really like. Reds aren't usually my thing but the vamp+gradient factor of this shade won me over. The Derby Girls Do It Better! collection is available now. You can find Lucky 13 Lacquer on:
