Lilypad Lacquer

* nothing to disclose * 

Hello again friends and happy day!!  Today I'm sharing with you one of my MOST favorite brands EVER... in the HISTORY of EVER!!!!  And, something I just can't seem to get enough of lately, vampy deep sexxxy colors.  BUT the bonus feature here, it is a duo and the names the colors it's just mind blowingly beautiful!!!!

So the brand is Lilypad Lacquer, and the maker is a TOTAL sweetheart, I have adored her for quite some time, Nicole. She never ceases to amaze me with her unique colors and blends, she's always pushing the envelope on creating new and fun and different.  Her unique polishes are what keeps me coming back for more... over and over and over. I tell her often that I'm just going to send her my paychecks.  LOL

Ok, no more chatter here... this due is Saint and Sinner.  LOVE THE NAMES!!  So first, let me hop in with Saint...

Lilypad Lacquer Saint

She is THE most beautiful and delicate but stunning white base with an amazing rosey red shimmer and HOLO!!!!  The name is perfect, she really is a Saint!  This is two coats with a top coat and seriously, I'm a broken record that PERFECT and flawless application.  Smooth as silk.

Ugh she's a stunning rosewood with a soft holo, not too overpowering, just enough to say Yep, that's right I AM a Sinner!!   Again, two simple coats, flawless and perfect formula.  EVERY TIME!  I have never had a wonky Lilypad.  There's a metallic glow in there, a shimmer that I can't place but I LOVE IT!!!!

Sweet Heart Polish

 * press sample, provided for my honest review *

Good day friends!!!  I have an exciting, fun and GORGEOUS trio to share with you!!! It's from one of my favorite makers, Cassandra, and I KNOW you're familiar with her brand, Sweet Heart Polish.  This is a very special trio, it's inspired from Disney's Tangled.  Yes, Rapunzel.  I LOVE the names, and they couldn't be more perfect for the colors.  The names were actually suggestions by fans in her Facebook Group, she asked for name ideas and she got TONS of excellent names, but the best of the best really couldn't have been more suited for the colors.  I present to you, the Tangled Trio.

So first up, I have the gorgeous crelly, You Broke My Smolder.  This was inspired specifically with Flynn in mind.  The thief turned lover.  It perfectly captures him, with the soft teal base and LOADED with goodies... from micro teal and copper glitters and then micro bronze flakies AND shimmers!!  GORGEOUS!!!  (A thief couldn't be more pleased to be full of such sparkly treasures!)

I applied 3 coats because my nail line is very assertive, you can still slightly see I have VNL in the pictures, but I think 3 coats is perfect. The formula, beautiful, the glitters just flooded out and about on my nail.  Not too much, just perfect!!  I love it!!!  The macro really captures everything perfectly.

Next up, we have I've Got a Dream... and yes, this beauty was inspired by the princess herself, Rapunzel.  This holo is HOLO Goodness!!!!  A stunning lilac LOADED with holo and then this soft sneaky shifty teal shimmer.  When the light hits it, it sort of screams HERE I AM!!!  lol

It really is quite feminine and soft, yet grown up.  It's on that ethereal edge of WOWZA!!!

Ok, my last but not least polish to share, is Hide & Seek Pascal...  talk about SPARKLY BARKLY!!!! It's a glitter bomb FULL of sparkly GOODNESS!!! Assorted sizes of glitters, and colors (just like any chameleon would love)...  Assorted circles in a couple of pinks, hexes in red, pink, fuchsia, white, micro squares of purples and blues, and then just micro fine glitters in the silver and blues.  It's incredible!!

Seriously, this is GORGEOUS!!  First I played applied it over I've Got a Dream, and really they are meant for one another.  The gorgeous glitter bomb perfectly compliments the lilac holo.

Perfect formula, no fishing around for glitters and they are the PERFECT amount so it's not a GOB of gooey glitters plopping onto your nail!  Cass has the perfect eye and touch for glitters!!  You also get a little bag of Mickey heads and as you can see, I played with them.  I personally like getting Mickey heads separately, so I can place them on my nails if I want to, or not if I'm not in the mood.  I LOVE THAT OPTION!!!!  Cassandra knows I have an aversion to Mickey heads, LOL, so getting the baggie of them is just perfect!  But I played and I think he looks SO CUTE in my mani!!

Then of course, I am a purist, so I got rid of my undies and had to play with Hide & Seek Pascal again... and sure enough.  This is 1 coat and I think it's perfect this way as well. I can't help it, I LOVE OPTIONS!!!  I am a VERY happy girl when I can pick n' choose exactly what I am in the mood for.  How beautiful is this!!!

Sweet Heart Polish - Hide & Seek Pascal - the Tangled Trio

It is SO fun and SO colorful!!!  It's exceptional!  What a perfect trio that really captures the characters!

This glitter bomb is perfect!  With or within the Mickey heads, and with or without undies, it's perfect!!  I can imagine a ton of color varieties for undies, and it would look excellent with most colors.

LOVE THOSE GLITTERS!!  Cass has a CRAZY amount of glitters, ok, honestly, she is glitter obsessed!  LOL  She is always seeking out new fun glitters, shapes, colors, finishes, she could possibly be considered a glitter hoarder, but we'll say obsessed.  LOL
