Superficially Colorful Lacquers: Hot Italian Lady & Imaginary Narwhals

Good evening!  I'm back!  I have a couple more polishes from the new indie brand Superficially Colorful Lacquer to share!  These glitters from the My Favorite Things collection won't be available immediately at the opening on Monday March 3rd at 1:00 pm EST, but they will be added in the near future.  You will be able to buy amazing thermals and the Remnants of Winter Collection right away though.  So let's take a look at these fabulous glitters that you can look forward to!

The My Favorite Things collection will likely be pretty big and the 2 polishes I am sharing today tell me that it will be a really amazing collection.  This beauty is Hot Italian Lady.  I love it!  It's the perfect color (reminds me of a calabrese sausage but pretty of course) with the perfect amount of bling!  Hot Italian Lady is described as a "fiery hot (orange leaning) red holo micro glitter in red jelly base with added fold stars and gold dot glitter."  The stars and dots are meant to be sparse and I didn't get any out on this mani but hopefully next time I will see some come out to play.  The first coat dried a bit gritty but the second coat smoothed that out.  Aside from that little note, the formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.   

Imaginary Narwhals is a "silver holographic micro glitter in almost clear base, with sparse silver stars."  You can wear this one alone in 2-3 coats or over a base color.  I chose to wear it alone and think it was quite pretty - you can still see a few spots where my nail peeks out underneath but it reminds me of a gorgeous sparkly dress with sheer cutouts where you can see the nude skin underneath.  Imaginary Narwhals is super sparkly and blingy.  A few stars came out all of their own decision, but you may not be able to see them under the rest of the sparkle.  I used 3 coats of Imaginary Narwhals and found the formula easy to use.  It didn't get thick or goopy, just nice and fluid over my nails.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
