Let Dreamy Lacquer Company sweep you off your feet!
G'day ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I have another review for you today, with some real beauties. Dana and Jessica from Dreamy Lacquer Company were kind enough to send me four of their gorgeous polishes to share with you :-D Don't stall, click here to see my pictures!
Dreamy Lacquer Company is the brainchild of Dana and Jessica. They run this bizz from Independence, Missouri where they make some really kickass products!
Their bottles all come with a little plastic charm around the cap, I think it's so cool that this charm is the image of their logo. I was a little rough on one of the charms because I wanted to readjust it for the picture, and the elastic band snapped... oops! I was more careful after that!
And OMG did you see the labels? They're holographic! I LOVE that!
We start off with Peri-Twinkle, a holo periwinkle polish. It is just the perfect color blue, really gorgeous. Also unbelievable hard to photograph and it looks different in various lighting, so I took pictures in the light box with my regular lighting, again in the light box with a strong led light aimed at the nails and then a picture of what sunlight does to the polish. Enjoy!
I haven't seen this polish in the store, so I don't think it's available yet. I'd suggest following these ladies on Facebook to keep track of new releases, swatches and more!
The Peri-twinkle has a blue pigment that, for some unknown reason, dissolves completely in a little solvent before the lacquer base gets added, then it seems to migrate back together into little clumps over time. "
This is no reason to like this polish any less, because most of them vanished after I put on my top coat. You can hardly see any of the clumps on my pictures, and I have a hard time finding them on my nails when I look at them. Just make sure to use a top coat!
Isn't this gorgeous?
The Man In Black
Oooh mysterious name, I love that :D And the shine... ohhh the shine! The Man In Black is a really dark black, just pure, pure black, with some silver microglitter for extra pizazz.
I really love the look of this polish. Sometimes it feels like looking into an abyss, it's so dark and shiny.
I highly recommend this polish. It's awesome :D
My favorite of the bunch! Ah mah gawd it is just gorgeous!
Purple 9-1-1 is a beautiful near-neon purple with the same silver microglitter as The Man In Black, which makes them like sisters.
This one had some polish clumps as well, but only really slightly. My top coat took them out, military style, and then all that was left was a gorgeous, smooth surface of purple yumminess.
The color was kind of hard to capture on camera and it came out a little more blue than it actually was, so I had to adjust the color settings a little bit. I want to be honest about this! But on my screen, this looks REALLY similar to the actual color of the polish, and that's what I was going for.
Heehee! The name of this polish always makes me giggle! It's supposed to represent a melted Frosty the Snowman, so it's a somewhat off-white sheer polish that has small orange hex glitter for the carrot, medium oily blue/black hex glitter for the coles, small iridescent glitter for the snowy sparkles. There's a small amount of blue flowers in the mix as well, they represent the flower on Frosty's top hat.
Uhh...Frosty? is meant to be thin, because melted snow isn't really white anymore, but Frosty is, so I was going for an in-between. I did initially attempt to make it more opaque, but the glitter barely showed and you couldn't tell the difference between the blue and black, the orange just faded away and the flowers were non-existent."
So there ya have it, folks! No worries though, if you like the opaque look more, like I do too, then just apply a couple of extra coats.
Uhh... Frosty? on its own, but I really don't recommend it. Thick coats of this polish have a hard time drying and the perfectionists among us will drive themselves nuts over the few little bubbles that will appear. It does really fine in thin coats though!
I had one tiny flower emerge from the bottle, completely by accident, and it landed on my index finger. It's really hard to see though, because I added another layer over it.
The colors combined with the low opacity makes that this polish ranks low for me. It might be totally your style though!
That brings us to the end of this review already! I hope you had a good time looking and reading, and don't forget to stop by the Dreamy Lacquer Company store to pick up some of these beauties yourself! Their bottles come in full size of 15ml/0,5fl.oz. and they are $8,00 a piece. Also, you might want to check out their Facebook page for all kinds of fun stuff! Not only swatches and info on availability, but also cute manis and great jokes :D
Thanks a whole big bunch to Dana and Jessica for providing me with these gorgeous polishes, I had an amazing time with them and keep an eye out, because they will make more appearances in the future!
