More Beauties From Cadillacquer

Hiya Hussies!

Tonight I have another three gorgeous polishes from the lovely Madeleine at Cadillacquer :-)

What The Heart Wants

What The Heart Wants is a delicate pistachio green crelly base with gold circle and square glitters and a beautiful gold micro flakie shimmer.

The formula was buttery smooth and there was no fishing for glitters. The swatches here show two coats of What The Heart Wants followed by two coats of Seche Vite.

Where The Wild Things Are

This polish has a luxurious, moody greeny/grey crelly base and its packed with iridescent glitter, silver glitter, flakies and a strong golden shimmer. This is not a colour I would normally wear, however the shimmer and glitters glow amazingly and really turned my head.

Application was as usual a breeze. The swatches here show two coats of Where The Wild Things Are followed by a coat of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite.

Live Free

Live Free is definitely my favourite of the three polishes (I'm a sucker for pink!). Live Free is a delicate baby pink crelly base with turquoise glitter, tiny brown glitter and an amazing turquoise shimmer. 

Madeleine is the queen of shimmer, she knows exactly what shes doing and it works perfectly every time!

Application was once again perfect. The swatches here show two coats of Live Free followed by a coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite.

Aly's Dream Polish Euphoria Collection

Hey all!

Tonight I have three beautiful holographic polishes by Aly's Dream Polish from the Euphoria collection. I was lucky enough to be chosen by Aly to review several of her polishes and I was able to choose which ones I wanted to play with! It took me ages to choose the colours I wanted because there are so many and they are all beautiful!

Just to make things simpler ill say now that all of the formula's are excellent they apply like butter and cover in two coats. They are all highly pigmented and dry to a glossy finish. Aly's polishes do not contain Spectraflair, they use a cosmetic grade holographic pigment which gives a delicate scattered holographic finish.

#55 Dark Orchid

Dark Orchid is a lilac leaning pink polish.

#58 Intense Blurple

Intense Blurple is exactly what it says on the tin! Its a deep, luxurious blurple shade that in some lights looks almost denim.

Daily Lacquer Slayer Collection and Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice!

Hey Hussies,

Sorry I haven't been around for a while but university is kicking my arse at the moment and I haven't had time to play :-(

I'm back tonight with three new polishes from the gorgeous Maggy at Daily Polish.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

First up is the neon explosion Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice. I know there have been a lot of neon glitter polishes released lately but I just cant get enough of them. This one is different from the rest because as well as a mixture of neon micro glitters and hex glitter it has the uniqueness of neon pink butterfly's and neon blue stars :-)

The formula is excellent with a decent amount of glitter loading onto the brush with every dip into the bottle. There's no fishing for stars or butterfly's but a little careful placement is needed to get then where you want them.

The swatches here show one coat of Sugar, Spice over a base of Illamasqua Scorch, followed by a coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite.

Giles The Ripper

Giles The Ripper is part of Maggy's new Slayer Collection inspired by Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Giles The Ripper is a beautiful lavender purple shot through with masses and masses of blue to pink duo-chrome shimmer.

The formula on this polish was a little thick but I think that's to be expected with such a highly pigmented polish, however it didn't affect the application.

The swatches here show two coats of Giles The Ripper followed by a coat of Seche Vite for a glossy finish.

Not So Angel

Not So Angel is another polish from The Slayer Collection. This polish is a gorgeous, shimmery ice blue with a green and pink colour shift in certain lights. Here I have used Angel alone but it would be awesome as a topcoat over a darker base (ill have to try that out!)

The formula was lovely to work with. The swatches here show three coats of Not So Angel followed by one coat of Seche Vite for added gloss.
