I have an absolutely fabulous collection to show you today my dear readers! I’m sorry that I’ve been so absent lately but I graduate from college next week with my Bachelor’s Degree so I have been exceptionally busy.
I wanted to show you this collection though because it releases TODAY. You’re definitely going to want to grab this collection in time for the Avengers: Age of Ultron that opens on May 1st since this collection is inspired by the Marvel comics and first as a group appeared in an Avengers comic book! This is the Perfect collection of nail polish for any superhero (or supervillain) – loving person! Rebecca, the mastermind behind Alchemy Lacquers, really is a fan of comic books and was inspired to create a collection to reflect that love!
I keep saying it but I’ll say it again, every collection is a little better than before in terms of execution of theme, ideas, and creativity. Rebecca constantly wants to improve on her product, is ruthless with testing, and I can tell you that she spends months working on a collection before it comes out. Sometimes it’s so hard to keep them under wraps!
I’m going to break my pattern here and talk about formula right now because honestly they are all super similar in formula and application and rather than repeat myself ad nauseam (college words for the win!) about how great the formula is I’m going to tell you at the top. These are a collection of jelly holographic polishes so they are a touch sheer but they are meant to be to show off all the glitter and flakies. All pictures show three coats and they are opaque. The application was divine and I had no trouble getting a good finish with the polish, no streaking or dragging.
Because I can’t stand for things not to be orderly and in proper order we’re going to do this collection in rainbow order. First up we have Ruby of Power:
Ruby of Power is a lovely red jelly holographic polish that has multi-shades red microglitter and UltraChrome Flakies! The flakies in this polish shift from red to orange. The complexity of a seemingly simple polish is amazing.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Ruby of Power; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
Next up is Spessartite of Time:
Again we have a gorgeous jelly holographic polish, this one is orange. There are multi-shades of orange microglitter and UltraChrome Flakies. The flakies in this polish shift between orange and yellow.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Spessartite of Time; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
Now we have Citron of Reality:
Citron of Reality is the yellow one in the bunch! It’s a slightly green-leaning yellow jelly holographic base with multi-shades of yellow microglitter and UltraChrome Flakies. The flakies shift between yellow and green which enhances the green-leaning bit of the polish.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Citron of Reality; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
Emerald of Soul:
Hubba hubba. This is one of my favorites, it’s just the perfect shade of emerald green and it looks amazing on my skin tone so I definitely can’t wait to wear it again. This is an emerald green jelly holographic polish with multi-shades of green microglitter and UltraChrome flakies. The flakies shift between green and blue.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Emerald of Soul; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
Next to last in our rainbow of comic-book inspired polishes is Sapphire of Mind:
I never ever ever get tired of TARDIS blue polish. Even though this one is not Doctor Who inspired it is still a perfect TARDIS blue! This is a sapphire blue jelly holographic polish with multi-shades of blue microglitter and UltraChrome flakies. The flakies in this one shift between blue and purple.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Sapphire of Mind; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
Last but certainly not least is Amethyst of Space:
I.Love.This.Polish. I need back-ups of this one. It’s so gorgeous I could just die, but on the other hand that would suck because then I couldn’t keep enjoying this polish! This is a medium amethyst violet jelly holographic polish with multi-shades of purple microglitter and UltraChrome Flakies. The flakies in this one shift between purple and red…Are you sensing a theme here??? Did you notice, readers, that the flakies in each one points to the next polish!!!??? How flipping awesome is that?! This small detail just adds one more band of cohesion to an already tightly conceptualized collection.
Polishes used: Barielle – Nail Rebuilding Protein; Alchemy Lacquers – Amethyst of Space; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
