Aphrodite Lacquers - Romeo & Juliette

Hey Kids!

Tonight's offering to the polish gods features two polishes by Aphrodite Lacquers, inspired by iconic lines from Romeo and Juliette.

Such Sweet Sorrows

I love pink, pretty much anything pink gets my vote! Such Sweet Sorrow is a gorgeous pink jelly polish with pink glitters in various shapes, purple circle glitters and a smattering of holographic micro glitter.

The application of this polish is easy and it glides on without having to place the glitters where you want them. However because its a jelly polish I found it needed several coats to build to opacity and even then I got a visible nail line so I decided to layer this over Bubblegum Ice a super pink neon from the new Models Own collection.

The swatches here show two coats of Such Sweet Sorrow over a base of Bubblegum Ice followed by a coat of Seche Vite.

 Two Star Crossed Lovers

Two Star Crossed Lovers is a delicate lilac milky, jelly base with lots of pink shimmer that catches the light and a range of purple and silver glitters in various shapes and sizes. 

This polish was easier to build to opacity in just three coats, however it still retains the gorgeous depth of a jelly polish.

The swatches here show three coats of Two Star Crossed Lovers followed by two coats of Seche Vite.
