Reverie Nail Lacquer Tide Pools Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a new to me brand to share with you. I've been eying Reverie Nail Lacquer for a while now and I finally caved during their last sale and made a sizable purchase.

Tide Pools features a blue jelly base with a hint of silver shimmer packed with blue, copper, green, silver and white glitters in various shapes and sizes. The formula on this one was fairly thick due to the sheer amount of glitter in it. The technique I found worked well was to brush the polish on the nail and then use the brush to dab any sheer spots and nudge apart the odd glitter clump (aka many glitters sitting on top of each other). This takes a little more work but the payoff is that this polish only takes two coats to become opaque. I used a good coat of Gelous to smooth things out and then a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat to seal everything up. Photos show two coats of Tide Pools with one coat of Gelous and one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

The verdict? The end results is very pretty but personally I think I would have preferred a slightly less glitter dense formula even if it took an extra coat to become opaque. Overall though, this polish is gorgeous and the little bit of extra work to apply is definitely worth it. You can find Reverie Nail Lacquer on:

Happy polishing,
