Lights Lacquer When in Romance Fall 2020 Collection

Happy Friday loves!!! What a week it has been! I have been quite busy with a mix of family, small business, and nail polish stuff going on. A busy bee indeed.

Today we are going to take a look at the stunning When in Romance Collection by Lights Lacquer. This 6 piece set is “love” bottled up into 6 shades. If you didn’t already know, Kathleen Lights is the creator of Lights Lacquer and this collection is all her! She loves LOVE, so naturally, these polishes from the names to the shades are all about what she loves!

The PR box is the most beautiful PR box I have ever received! I am blown away at the details and beauty. I’m keeping it forever and repurposing it for special jewelry. I love it!

Ok, I know you guys are dying to see swatches, so let’s take a look!!!


This is a fuchsia pink filled with orange/copper shifty shimmer. The formula was great, easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.

WOW! This polish GLOWS sooooo insanely beautifully under the sun. I am in awe!!!! So fiery and gorgeous.

Here it is outdoors under shade. Equally as perfect.


This is a light rose gold shimmer with tons of iridescent/silvery glitter. What a pretty polish! Transports me right to Paris. I love it. The formula is wonderful. It’s opaque in 2 easy coats. Removal can get a little messy with this one since it has so much glitter, so just make sure not to rub the acetone all over your finger and stay on the nail.

I love how silvery this polish turns depending on the lighting.

Outdoors under shade it’s especially silver.


This is a dusty beige with slight olive undertones. The formula is super super pigmented! I was surprised for a shade like this, the formula was amazing. Very easy to apply, thick and almost opaque on the first coat. I did 2 coats here just to level everything out.


This is a dusty mauve creme. Beautiful! The formula was fantastic. Almost opaque on the first coat as well. Applies buttery and smooth. I did 2 coats here.


This is a mustard yellow creme. I am OBSESSED with mustardy yellows. Now this one is added to my list of obsessions. Such a great formula too! So perfect for fall, so delicious and creamy, opaque in 2 easy coats. I wore this one for a few days and I absolutely loved it. I will add though that it did stain, just a teeny bit on my sidewalls, but nothing a little extra acetone can’t remove. It’s totally worth it!!!


This is a deep, dark, teal blue creme. So gorgeous and vampy. I’m currently wearing this one as a mani. The formula is fabulous, super pigmented and this one was the only one that was truly opaque in ONE coat! I love it!!!

I used Seche Vite to top all of my swatches. You can get it on Amazon here.

My fave from the bunch is 100% definitely A Temporary Madness. Yellows make me weak. I love them. Which one(s) was/were your fave(s)?!

Ok I know you guys love DUPES, so let me know in the comments what polishes you want me to compare these to. I have a few lined up already!

Have a great weekend!!
