Three finger lickin' Gothic Gala Lacquers, lots of swatches
Hiya cuties! Didn't I tell you something special was coming?? It's here! I have for you... swatches of three finger lickin', mind numbing, smack your face gorgeous Gothic Gala Lacquers! I'm so proud to be showing you these nail polishes! This is only the first half, I have three more to publish on Monday... So click, click, click!
Gothic Gala Lacquers has been in business for 6 months now (happy half year anniversary!) and a real up and comer. Her line is being picked up by a brand new stockist, so be sure to check out this brand because I'm telling you... Seriously one of the best indies I've ever tried <3
What I also love is how much updates there are on her Facebook page. She's really dedicated to her craft, and it shows!
Rainbow In A Bottle
Let's start with the polish I love the most, shall we? This absolute gorgeousness is called Rainbow In A Bottle and it's a duochrome. No, scratch that, it's a multichrome! Beautiful deep blue and purple are most prominent in this polish, most of the time you will see both colors at the same time, which just looks... *ahhh* sublime <3
When the light hits your nails at a certain angle, it also shifts to copper and gold tones, I'll show you this later!
I applied two coats over black, I tried to make it opaque on its own but that just won't work. It's not meant to be opaque. So here it is over black, to make the colors stand out pretty!
Rainbow In A Bottle is a very easy polish to work with. It's pretty thin, but not too runny, it has perfect drying time so it doesn't dry while you're trying to polish, but it's dry in no time when you're done. Or does that sound too much like the M&M's commercial: 'Melts in your mouth, not in your hands'? Well it does, just take it from me. And my heart melted for this polish!
Ofcourse, application is made all the more easy by the amazing caps that Gothic Gala Lacquers has chosen. They are long and slender, which makes for awesome control. You can even hold them like a pencil. Cuticle clean up is a thing of the past when applying polish is this easy!
Feel Me Up
Feel Me Up is a special polish for breast cancer awareness. I was looking at this for a while and suddenly thought: 'Hey, those white hex glitters remind me kind of, ehm... nip... err, you know :-p' (trying to keep it family friendly here!)
Feel Me Up is a beautiful pink polish with a slight pearly effect to it. It has all kinds of glitter, I spotted small and medium pink holographic glitter and ofcourse the big white nip... hex glitter.
Gothic Gala Lacquers. I almost feel like I should post 'the great' behind that name, or call this brand a royalty or something... because that's what it deserves.
Feel Me Up', I just can't help but add 'Oh yes, please do!'. I know, it's totally wrong, but I've been single for a year already so gimme a break!
Moon Over Paradise
Moon Over Paradise is a black jelly that's so super smooth, you won't know what hit you when you're applying your polish. It has pink medium circles and purple medium hex glitter, light purple diamond glitters and look! Pretty red half moon shapes!
Moon Over Paradise is something special! Actually, this polish comes in two versions: a black jelly and a grey jelly. I couldn't pick one because they're both so beautiful, so Samantha chose to send me the black one. I can't blame her, it's gorgeous!
At first, it looked to me like this polish would be a tough one to reach opacity. It only took three coats though, somewhat on the thicker side but it dried SO fast! There were no bubbles and drying time was excellent so I didn't mind using slightly thicker coats.
In the mean time, why don't you hop on over to the Gothic Gala Lacquers Facebook page and give Samantha some love? You never know, you might just make it into the super secret Gothic Gala mega fan group :-p
If I made you drool, you can get your hands on these beauties yourself in the Gothic Gala Lacquers Etsy store and also check out her Instagram profile!
Thanks so much for reading and a big hug to Samantha for trusting me with the lives of her dearly beloved polishes! *big smile*
