Good morning! Sorry for going MIA again. This month has been pretty busy and I've had to put blogging on the back burners to what happens in life. But thankfully it's nothing serious or bad, just alot going on. Dern holidays getting in the way of my blogging. LOL. Well I have some really fabulous holos to show you today. You know I am a humongo fan of holos so I literally squealed when these arrived in my mailbox! These beauties are the Super Black Lacquers Fall 2013 Collection and they are amazing. I have reviews Super Black Lacquers before and you can check those posts out HERE, HERE and HERE (there are a few more and you can do a search for Super Black in my search bar). I have been impressed with every SBL that I've tried and these are no exception. Actually I think they may be my favorites! You can purchase Super Black Lacquer HERE and can follow them on Facebook and Instagram! So let's delve in to the pictures!
This is Guilty. Guilty is a metallic yellow-gold color with a soft linear holo. It had an amazing, buttery formula that was so easy to apply. No problems with patches or streaks, just flawless formula and application. I used 2 coats for full coverage and upon the recommendation from Natalie on her product description, I didn't use topcoat so the holo would be at it's strongest.
3rd Degree is the only polish in this collection that isn't a holo, but I love it! It's one of my favorite color families and the glowy shimmer is perfection. Natalie describes it as a "pearlescent persimmon" color with "superfine gold shimmer." The juicy red-orange color is spot on for the Fall and the shimmer will completely steal your breath! I tried to do my best at capturing the shimmer so hopefully you can see how gorgeous it is. I used 2 coats for full coverage and again it was an amazing formula and application was perfect. I finished this with 1 layer of topcoat.
I love the name and color of Spanked. Spanked is described as a "shimmering cranberry red in low light, with a prismatic holo effect in sunlight." I'm not sure I see the cran, but I definitely see the berry! Or maybe this is the shade of a freshly spanked behind. Whatever the reason or meaning behind the name this is a gorgeous color with a beautiful soft linear holo effect. Just like the other 2 from the Fall 2013 collection it had a buttery formula with lovely application. I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
And lastly is Heather. Heather is a purple polish with a soft linear holo effect. It's the perfect shade of purple...a perfect in between color. The holo effect is also really lovely. Keeping in line with the others, application and formula were both wonderful. I used 2 layers and no topcoat.
Just because I thought it would be pretty I did a little gradient mani with Spanked and Heather! They were so pretty together. I like how you can see the differences in holo effect on the 2 different polishes. I did use a layer of topcoat here to smooth out and gloss up my gradient.
