Soooo remember how I told you that one post could not hold all the Epic that I had received to review from Alchemy Lacquers? Well this is part two of my “Lab Report!” Today I have three beautiful polishes that are just so pretty and perfect for Spring! Rebecca calls these her “Shimmer Crellies” which is a perfect description!
First up I have Crocus!
Crocus is a lovely light pink-leaning purple crelly base filled with a pearly shimmer. It also has glitter! And lots of it! I see metallic dark purple squares, satin pale pale purple squares, tiny golden yellow hexes, and teensie metallic dark purple dots.
These are crelly bases so they are a bit sheer but they build up beautifully or you can layer them over a base color. I much prefer to build them up because it creates a depth that you just don’t really get with them layered over a color. Pictures show three coats with topcoat!
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Crocus; Carpe Noctem – Glitterslayer; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat.
Next up is the first of my two favorites. I totally could not decide which one I liked best! This one is Nasturtium!
I really wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this one because I tend to shy away from yellows and oranges but this one is just lovely! The crelly base is the precise color of an Orange Julius and it’s filled with red, orange, and yellow glitter in various finishes, shapes, and sizes.
This one was very sheer in the first coat and I was worried slightly that I might have to do more than three coats or that I’d have to layer it but I was wrong! Just three coats and it was fully opaque!
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Nasturtium; Carpe Noctem – Glitterslayer; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat.
Next up is one that I received a prototype lab sample of quite awhile ago…I have been pestering Rebecca ever since over these shimmer crellies because I knew then before it was even finalized that I loved them! This is Borage (the final version).
O.M.G. I love blue polishes, I love crelly based glitter polishes, I’m feeling the more subtle smaller glitter, and shimmer and sparkle? Why yes sign me up for more of these shimmer crellies!!! Borage is a sky blue shimmer crelly base filled with teeeensie tiny satin barely blue squares, tiny metallic purple squares, small satin barely blue dots, small matte blue hexes, and small holographic deep teal hexes.
I don’t know if it’s because this one I just love so much or what but I think that in this one the glitter went on even easier than the other two I reviewed. Either way the formula on all of them was really stellar!
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Borage; Carpe Noctem – Glitterslayer; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat.
