Brand Challenge: Grab Bag #2


Aliquid Lacquer Cough As Much As You Choose, Philly Loves Lacquer I Built You A Nest, Nail Pattern Boldness Hello Sweetie

Hello readers,
Today I have another set of untried polishes from a mix of brands in my collection to share with you. Let's take a look at swatches.

Aliquid Lacquer Cough As Much As You Choose

Aliquid Lacquer Cough As Much As You Choose features a sky blue crelly base with small green metallic flakes, small charcoal flakes and a subtle silver flecked shimmer. The formula was easy to work with and took three coats for full coverage, though it was so close after two that two may be enough for some. This shade dried to a waxy finish so top coat is recommended for shine. Photos show three coats of Cough As Much As You Choose with one coat of Essie Gel Setter top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Philly Loves Lacquer I Made You A Nest features a blue tinted base  filled with small glitters and shimmer in shades of blue, silver and turquoise. The formula was excellent and built up to almost full coverage in three coats. This dried relatively smoothly for a micro glitter. There's definitely still texture but one coat of top coat was enough for a perfect finish. Photos show three coats of I Made You A Nest with one coat of Essie Gel Setter top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Nail Pattern Boldness Hello Sweetie feature a warm purple jelly base filled with small glitters in gold and black, medium red glitters and larger gold glitters. The formula was easy to work with though a bit sheer. After three coats you can still see my nail lines a bit though the glitters do break them up. This polish dries down with some glitter bumps so you'll want to add top coat. Photos show three coats of Hello Sweetie with two coats of Essie Gel Setter top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.
