It’s been awhile since my last post for Alchemy Lacquers but let me tell you it’s worth the wait! There is a new collection that is being released TOMORROW and you definitely will want to get your hands on this collection! It’s called “A Tall Drink of Nature” and is based on plants that are used to make drinks!
First up we have Camellia. This polish is inspired by the leaf buds of the Camellia sinensis plant. This is the plant from which we get tea!
Fitting then that this should be a beautiful green color that reminds me quite a bit of green tea. This is a soft creamy green scattered holo with a flash of red shimmer.
I’m going to go ahead and point it out because it’s a bit noticeable in these pictures – I have a patch on my forefinger. I would not want anyone to think that the imperfection on my forefinger has anything to do with the formula because the formula on this is gorgeous! It went on smoothly and without any opacity or application issues. These pictures show two easy coats plus topcoat.
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Camellia; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat.
Next up we have Kola:
Kola is a reddish brown linear holo with a multichrome finish. The inspiration for this one is relatively clear! It’s based on the Kola nut which was used in making a certain kind of soft drink that we should all be familiar with! It’s shifty and gorgeous and it reminds me of a tall frothy glass of…Cola! Rebecca nailed this one!
Again the formula on this was excellent. I actually have trouble with some holos, they tend to be a little thin or streaky but this one had none of that! The pictures show two coats plus topcoat.
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Kola; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat.
Next up we have Cloudberry and I might just float to the clouds on how pretty it is!
Cloudberry is inspired by an actual berry that is used to make an alcoholic drink called Lakka. This is a gorgeous peachy orange with iridescent microglitter and a sparkly purple shimmer finish.
I really love the way that this one looks on. I was worried that it might be a touch sheer because of the lighter color but it built up quite nicely in two coats with nary a bit of VNL to be seen! Pictures show two coats plus topcoat.
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Cloudberry; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat.
Last up we have my favorite of the four…Roselle:
Roselle is inspired by a variety of hibiscus that is used to make a Mexican drink called jamaica (not to be confused with the country). The polish is a wine colored jelly filled with microflakies and red to gold color changing glitter! It’s got a gorgeous depth and is very flattering!
Love love this one. Perfect jelly formula, opaque in two coats but doesn’t lose any of it’s depth or squishiness. I love the sparkle of the color changing glitters and I’m PRETTY sure that everyone knows my fondess for all things flakie. Two coats…sans topcoat!
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Roselle
