Kelara Lacquers Part 2

I had 6 gorgeous Kelara Lacquers to show you and this is the 2nd part.  Part 1 is the "solid" colors, part 2 is the "glitters."  If you missed Part 1 you can see it here!  Kelara Lacquers is a 3-free and cruelty free indie brand.  There are already several collections available on and the variety in the selection is really awesome!  Aside from purchasing directly on the website, you can also purchase from the Etsy store.  And be sure to follow Kelara Lacquers on Facebook!

The first glitter I have to share is Hoodoo Man from the latest collection Sweet Home Chicago.  This collection is inspired by the Blues scene in Kelara hometown Chicago.  Hoodoo Man is specifically inspired by harmonica player Junior Wells.  I believe you can get Hoodoo Man to fully cover your nails in 4 coats, but I chose to layer it over a similar base color - Essence Gabriella.  I then used 2 coats of Hoodoo Man, which is full of bright neon pink, blue and green glitters.  It's an awesome combination!  Application was easy and I got great glitter payoff.  The glitters are a tad textured so I used one coat of Gelous and my nails were smooth to the touch.

Up next is Mojo Workin', another polish from the Sweet Home Chicago collection.  Mojo Workin' is inspired by the legendary Muddy Waters.  Mojo Workin' is a gorgeous sheer blue jelly base full of aqua, green, pink and holo glitters.  It was a lovely formula with lots of glitter payoff.  I used 2 coats and the glitter spread easily on my nails and laid flat.  I chose 2 colors to show off Mojo Workin'; Orly Liquid Vinyl (black) and Orly Blue Collar (dusty medium blue) as my accent nail.  It turned out very blingtastic!  I used 1 coat of Gelous for smooth nails.

And lastly I have Mother Earth 2.0 from The Colors For A Cause 2.0 Collection.  All the colors in this collection benefit amazing causes.  Mother Earth 2.0 has $2 from each sale going to The World Resources Institute.  Check out other polishes from The Colors For A Cause 2.0 Collection to see what causes are being supported.     Mother Earth 2.0 is described as a "cinnamon and pink glitters" in a clear base.  This is a very heavy glitter polish and I loved it!  There are tons of hexs and the gold micro glitter makes it almost a full coverage polish on it's own.  I had no problems with formula or application.  I used 2 coats over ManGlaze Santorum (brown) and OPI Elephantastic Pink on my accent nail.  1 coat of Gelous for smooth, shiny nails.
