Good morning and Happy Halloween! I'll be watching my kids parade at their school, then helping out in one of the classrooms while they get settled into a Halloween art project! Hopefully I'll have time to grab coffee with a girlfriend before I have to go straight back to the school and pick them all up. So while I do all that you can check out the new Super Black Lacquers Fall 2014 Collection! Packed full of shimmer, glitter, metallic, creme and opalescence - it's a fabulous 5 piece collection that covers alot of finish bases! The Fall 2014 Collection is currently available on the website and you can purchase them for $10 - $12 each.
Bruiser is a "plum purple with silvery shimmer." Bruiser is showing a bit warmer in my pictures than it is in real life. But that silver flakie shimmer is ah-mazing! It's a really flattering shade of purple that has fantastic coverage. Both the formula and application were great. I used 2 coats of Bruiser for complete opaqueness and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
*any pink that you see in the pictures are the reflection of my camera.
Fall Back is a perfect "midnight blue creme." This is an extremely opaque slightly jelly formula (maybe it's cruelly?). It is super dark, almost black in regular lighting. In my bright light you can clearly see that it is a deep blue. Fall Back had a great formula that was easy to work with. It applied smoothly and has a shiny finish. I used 3 coats of Fall Back for full coverage and finished up with a layer of topcoat to keep the uber glossy look.
Moving on to the glitter of the collection, Boss Lady. Boss Lady is a "glitterbomb with 5 sizes of champagne fold glitter and gold pigment." This is just WOW! It's so luxurious and blingy AND gold! I love the sparkle and depth. You can wear Boss Lady alone or over a base color. But this is really opaque alone so it could totally cover the base color that you choose unless you lightly sponge Boss Lady on. I chose to wear it alone and had full coverage in 3 coats. I also sponged 1 layer on the tip of my accent nail (which was Fall Back). I finished with 1 layer of topcoat for a smooth finish.
Semi Automatic is a "metallic gunmetal grey." I love this color, it's dark and beautiful! It will be a perfect color to transition into the Winter months. The formula and application were both great - smooth formula and even coverage. There is a very fine rainbow holo shimmer visible to the naked eye but I wasn't successful at capturing it in any of my pictures. There were a few visible brush strokes so paint carefully if that bothers you. I used 2 coats of Semi Automatic and 1 layer of topcoat.
I saved my favorite for last, The Perfectionist. This is a "warm camel polish with violet pearlescence." Holy hell this is one stunning polish! I love it's super neutral yet girly base and the addition of that shimmer is, well, perfection. The Perfectionist is very creamy and has a pretty opaque formula for such a light color. It applied like a dream. I used 3 coats of The Perfectionist and 1 layer of topcoat.
