Alchemy Lacquers Blizzard Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have my first ever Alchemy Lacquer to show you.  I finally caved during their Black Friday sale and grabbed a bunch of polishes that I'd been eying for a long time.  Blizzard seemed an appropriate polish to match the weather outside.

Blizzard is described as a light blue crelly base with turquiose and silver flecks.  Personally, I think mine looks like more a white base but this could be due to slight variations between batches.  The formula was very easy to work with and went opaque in two coats.  This is particularly nice since most quite crellies tend to take at least three.  Unfortunately the silver shimmer that you can see in the bottle didn't really translate to the nail.  Photos show two coats of Blizzard with one coat of Nubar Diamond top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

This is a very pretty polish... but not quite what I was expecting.  The swatch photos in the listing were showed a base that was a lot more shimmery while mine ended up looking a lot more like a creme.  The formula was impeccable however and I do like the speckled appearance.  You can find Alchemy Lacquers on

Happy polishing,
