I’m back today with two new polishes by Australian brand, Lilypad Lacquer. These two are store exclusives for UK retailer Rainbow Connection and they are absolutely beautiful!
Lilypad really pulls out all the stops on creating polishes that are outstandingly unique and generally unlike anything else I come across, and these two are no exception to that.
Both of these polishes have similar characteristics in that they both have a very strong holographic effect, a duochrome effect, and colour-changing flakies. They are really quite outstanding and despite all the attributes, are not too over-the-top.
First up is Icemist. This one has a silver-blue-green duochrome effect with very strong holographic in the sunlight and those flakies! This one also has a pink turn to it in some lighting, however my camera did not want to show you that!
I wore this one for a couple of days and never tired of wearing it! It’s so fabulously unique and pleasing on!
My swatches show two coats and no topcoat. The polish glides on easily and evenly, those flakes not causing any issue. I’ll also mention here that the polish was no problem when it came time for removal. It came of just like any old creme polish!
Next up is Glistening Rosebud. She has a pink-strong gold shift. I would say that the golden shift is really quite strong. With most duochromes that have a traditional pink to gold shift, the gold is quite subtle and you have to really work to see it well. That was not the case here. Glistening Rosebud also has color shifting flakes and holo, just like Icemist. And with both these polishes too, the holo is so strong, it’s visible, even out of direct sunlight.
Again, this one is two coats and no topcoat for my swatches.
Personally I CANNOT wait to have the time to use one of these polishes, probably Glistening Rosebud, in some super cool nail art over a black or something. I can feel it’s going to be unreal!
You can purchase both of these polishes now from Rainbow Connection UK who ship to most countries worldwide.
