Hi loves! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. These are crazy times we are currently living but it will pass and we just have to stay calm and home, if possible. I’m home right now so that means I’ve been able to film and do blog posts again! This is super therapeutic for me and makes me incredibly happy. It’s also a huge distraction from all the bad going on in the world. I hope at the very least my blog post and swatch video brings a smile to your face and makes you forget about everything else going on just for a little while.
Today I’m showing you guys the gorgeous Polished Gems Collection by Lights Lacquer!!!! This collection launched in December and it took this quarantine for me to be able to swatch it! I just wasn’t able to before with my full time job, family events, and everything else going on – LIFE! I’m so happy to finally be able to show you these pretty colors. Good thing is Lights Lacquer has tons of sales, so that gives you an opportunity to pick these beauties up! I’m so grateful they sent this collection to me. Let’s take a look at each one.
This beauty is a deep emerald green creme. AMAZING pigmentation on this one! It’s opaque in one easy simple coat. I love these kinds of polishes. Super easy to apply and very luscious.
This is a gold shimmer filled with tons of gold micro glitter. This one was a bit sheer on the first coat, but covers up nicely on the second coat. It’s not completely opaque but I’m not mad at it because the gold shimmer is so pretty.
Love the way this one looks under the sun.
This is a deep wine ruby red filled with red micro and bar glitter. It was a little streaky on the first coat, but covers up completely on the second coat. So dark and sultry!!
The red glitter is a little hidden but you can catch the little reflects of red under the sun or light.
This is a smokey charcoal grey/brown with tons of gold shifty shimmer. Excellent formula on the first coat!!! Almost opaque, but I did two coats just to even it out.
The name on this one is so on point because smokey is the perfect way to describe this beauty.
This is a stunning purple holo. WOW! WOW! WOWWW! Who doesn’t love a good holo? This guy is perfection. Almost opaque on the first coat. I did two coats just to make the holo stand out even more. This one does dry dull so you will need a nice glossy top coat to make it sparkle.
Dead with this scattered holo!!!
This is a brown base with blue/purple shifty shimmer. First coat was a bit sheer, even after two it was still sheer, so I did a third coat. That did the trick.
Gorgeous shift on this from purple to blue. Love!
