Good morning! I am so excited to share this post today! A wonderful gal and talented polish maker is debuting her new line of polish, Superficially Colorful Lacquer (also the name of her blog) on Monday March 3rd at 1:00 EST. Jin has amazing thermals that she has sent out to many polish bloggers just as a gift. Thankfully she will have those as well as the gorgeous Winter collection available when she opens. This post features the Remnants of Winter collection, later today I will have some glitters and tomorrow I will have the thermals! Jin says this about the Remnants of Winter collection "this collection is characterized with very dark, black-ish basic colors with a touch of holo micro glitter." So let's take a look at Superfically Colorful Lacquer!
First I thought I'd share the adorable packaging the polish comes it! Jin has the cutest business cards and stationary with this same design! It's just an extra touch that makes her brand special!
Up first from the Remnants of Winter collection is Eye of the Storm. It's described as a "dark and cold blue shimmer." It's inspired by "the crazy storms this weird winter gave us. Heavy clouds, un-quiet sky and wild lightening storms." Eye of the Storm is a gorgeous color with a great formula. It was so deep and inky and built up to opacity in 2 coats. The holo micro glitters sparkled though beautifully! It did dry a bit textured but 1 layer of topcoat smoother it over and really brought the polish to life!
Turbulence was a tricky polish to photograph! Described as "a dark violet-pink with a hint of color shift of blue, red and gold. Not a multi chrome, just an undecided color that changes by the light." Turbulence draws inspiration from the "un-quiet air, the far lightening storms and the clouds that collide and leave." Wow this color is gorgeous! I think Turbulence was my favorite of the collection. I used 2 perfect coats for full coverage. There was a little less holo sparkle in this one, but the color shifting kept it interesting. Turbulence also dried semi gloss and 1 layer of topcoat shined things up.
Cape Cliffs is a beautiful "dark forest green inspired by the cliffs by the sea all covered by moss and sea weed after the rough seas of winter." Jin really has beautiful imagery to go with her polish. The holo sparkle is lovely against this deep and brooding color. Cape Cliffs had an amazing formula and application was a breeze. I used 2 coats for complete coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.
