Hello my lovelies. Fall is officially on its way. I woke up this morning and there was a nip in the air and the temperature stayed mild all day. While I love it right now because I can cruise with my windows down and my stereo blasting Queen as I’m on the highway, I’m just not ready for Fall yet! I still want summer colors and that lackadaisical summer feeling to continue on for just a bit longer.
I’m sure you’re eager to see these so I am not going to ramble forever. Let’s just say that I’m going to show you some fantastic eye-popping neon goodies from Alchemy Lacquers, and the best part? She just restocked them yesterday so they are available RIGHT NOW.
This is Alchemy Lacquers’ Fire Bright Collection:
Imagine my delight when I opened up my most recent package from Alchemy Lacquers and saw this adorable round tin staring up at me. I couldn’t wait to get that thing open because I already knew what was in it!
All the squees. Seriously, so much neon glitter goodness I almost passed right out. Then I had to figure out what the best way to show these would be without making you stay with me for half a year (not that you’d mind, right? RIGHT?). Anyway you shall see what I’m talking about below. First I want to show you two glitter toppers so versatile that I’m fairly certain I’ll need backups of them:
Fireworks is a glitter topper with a mix of various sizes of black glitter with a mix of neon glitters thrown into the mix. The glitters are all fairly small but the variety of sizes adds interest and depth!
Awesome right? Wait, you want to know about application, formula, etc? Ok well I’m relegating that information to the end of the post because each and every polish I show you today applied exactly the same way. Talk about consistency! Honestly quality is one of those things that I just take for granted with Alchemy Lacquers.
Next up is Pyrotechnics:
Pyrotechnics is the sister to Fireworks! Instead of a glitter topper with black and neon glitter, it’s white and neon. Yes, I know you can see it but I still wanted to say it! Same idea as Fireworks, multi-sized white glitter and a burst of mixed neon glitters.
Can you pick a favorite from these? No neither could I. I even donned white and black nail polish to show you these toppers (oh the horrors of plain black and white polish it’s so hard to get right!). They would look good over several different colors though so experiment away!
Ok next up are LiCl, CuSO4, CaCl, and KCl, and no I promise that isn’t just a random amalgamation of characters that I typed to throw you off…that is their names. These are the chemical abbreviations of chemical compounds:
Each of the glitter toppers in the rest of the collection is named after a chemical compound that is used in…you guessed it FIREWORKS and PYROTECHNICS. How very cool is that?? This is another thing that I love and adore about Alchemy Lacquers the themes are always well thought and exceptionally well executed. Each of this is a multi-sized neon glitter topper in one color in a clear base. LiCl is neon pink, CuSO4 is neon green, CaCl is neon orange, KCl is purple. Also there are matte and satin glitters so it gives it even more dimension!
I love that depending on the base you put them on you can get different looks. The possibilities for this collection are really endless when it comes to nail art as well!
Last but not least we have NaNO3, CuCl2, SrCl2, and NaCl
So much love for these glitter toppers. I’m totally doing a mega neon skittle mani (there are ten, count ’em ten, toppers in this collection) in the near future to try to grasp onto as much Summer as I can! NaNO3 is neon marigold, CuCl2 is neon blue, SrCl2 is neon coral, and last but not least is NaCl which is neon highlighter yellow!
Now of course some do show up better on black or white depending on the color but I wanted to show you both because I could. I think that SrCl2 is my favorite one although to be honest I love them all! So many things that you can do with these, you can pair these with neon polishes of a similar color to create a neon monochrome effect or with contrasting colors to really rock out your 80s throwback tendencies. Whatever you decide to do with this collection would be bright and fun.
The application of all the glitter toppers was exactly the same. I did not have to fish for the glitter at all. It’s suspended well and spread nicely. I preferred a bit of a heavier coat so I did lightly dab the polish instead of brushing which will give a subtler effect. All pics show one lightly dabbed coat over two coats of white or black with topcoat.
There you have it I’m clinging to summer like crazy. I love Autumn but when it starts to get too cold I am not a happy Relly! Per usual you should definitely check out the links below to follow, drool over, and get your own Alchemy Lacquers. I have some more stuff to show you soon but that’s for another day! Also go grab the Fire Bright Collection NOW it was just restocked yesterday!
