Bee's Knees Lacquer House On Haunted Chill, You My Chimichanga & Tough, Young, and Morally Flexible Swatches & Review


Bees Knees Lacquer House On Haunted Chill

Hello readers,
Bee's Knees Lacquer is a relatively new indie brand who got on my radar when Girly Bits Cosmetics started stocking them in Canada. I had the chance met the Bee's Knees team at Indie Expo Canada a few weeks ago and they we kind enough to give me a few shades to share with you. Let's take a look at swatches

House On Haunted Chill

Bees Knees Lacquer House On Haunted ChillBees Knees Lacquer House On Haunted Chill review

House On Haunted Chill features a sheer cobalt blue jelly base with shifting shimmer that looks predominantly pink and gold in bright lighting and green to purple in shaded lighting. This one of those polishes that can look completely different in different lighting situations. I used three coats and achieved almost full coverage. I say almost full because my nail line did still show through a little in bright direct lighting but wasn't visible otherwise. Photos show three coats of House On Haunted Chill with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

You My Chimichanga

Bees Knees Lacquer You My ChimichangaBees Knees Lacquer You My Chimichanga review

You My Chimichanga features a clear base filled with large particle green to pink shifting shimmer and iridescent pink flakes. Though this is a topper, there is a lot of shimmer in there. I used one coat over China Glaze Hanging In The Balance, and I fully admit that my pictures do not capture the intensity of the shimmer over top. This dries with some slight bumps do the pink flakes, but nothing a thin coat of top coat doesn't solve. Photos show one coat of You My Chimichanga over China Glaze Hanging In The Balance with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Tough, Young, and Morally Flexible blacked blue base with orange to green shifting aurora pigment, blue magnetic shimmer and a sprinkling of metallic flakies. I used two coats here. The first coat I applied thinly as usual. The second coat I applied a little thicker and used a bar magnet diagonally across my nails to create the blue shimmer line. I added a coat of top coat once that second polish coat had mostly dried and then used the magnet again to keep the line relatively crisp. Photos show two coats of Tough, Young, and Morally Flexible with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

You know I love interesting shimmers and these three definitely have them. Though I tried it as a standalone shade here, I think House On Haunted Chill could also be a beautiful topper. Overall, though it is a tough choice, I think my personal favorite is Tough, Young, and Morally Flexible. The mix of regular and magnetic shimmers is just so complex.

Happy polishing,
