Lumina Lacquer Valentine's Day Trio

Hello, hello!  Yes I am back again.  My seat is parked and I have been working my fingers off to get these all posted for you.  But you want to know something, I'm having fun!  And who doesn't love sparkly polish on their nails?  I sure do!  This post is the new Valentine's Day Trio from Lumina Lacquer.  I am so happy Tatiana went back to her glitter bomb roots with this collection and gave us some awesome new glitters to enjoy!  Of course I adore her solids colors and micro glitters, but it makes me happy to see the glitter bombs because that's what initially drew me to her brand well over a year ago.  The Valentine's Day Trio is made of 3 Limited Edition glitters and they just went live in the shop for $9 each.  I love them all but keep reading to find out which is my favorite of the 3.

Up first is Cupid, a "neon pink and white glitter mix that includes hearts, stars, and flowers."  The glitter mixture is very sweet and girly.  I put it over OPI Flamingo Tink Pink and love all the pinkness.  Cupid had a great formula with fantastic glitter coverage.  There was no fishing required for shapes or larger glitters.  I used 2 coats of Cupid and finished with a layer of topcoat.

Next, Bad Romance.  This is a "blue, turquoise and black glitter mix that includes hearts and stars in a clear base."  THIS was my favorite.  I loved the colors and sized of the glitters.  I love that it's not the typical Valentine's Day colors.  Bad Romance had a fantastic formula and applied easily.  I was really happy with the glitter payoff.  I used 2 coats of Bad Romance over Zoya Ling.  I finished with topcoat.

And rounding out the collection is Paramore.  Paramore is a "pink, red and gold holo microglitter blend in a clear base."  This is the blingy wow-factor of the trio!  The blend of colors are perfect and the microglitter, like all of Tatiana's microglitters, applies with ease and covers fully on it's own in a few coats.  But look at the bling!  Sorry, I am easily distracted by sparkly things.  Formula and application were both aces.  I used 3 coats of Paramore and finished with topcoat for a smooth to the touch finish.
