Afternoon lovelies! I hope your weekend is going well and you are enjoying it. I just enjoyed watching my oldest play soccer then a yummy sandwich lunch so all is going great for me. Now we are chilling at home for a bit before we head off for some shopping and hopefully to see my mom. Since I have a few minutes of downtime I figured I'd get the next pot up for your enjoyment. Dreamland Lacquer is celebrating her 5th anniversary! Can you believe Noelie has been making us a rainbow of gorgeous nail polish for 5 years?! She has been one of my absolute favorite brands for just as long and I am overjoyed that she still churning out amazing polish for us all to love.

Let's start with the 5-Year Anniversary Celebration polishes! This is In Dreams, a teal-blue to purple shifty polish with large holo particles. I adore the teal color in this polish, it's vibrant and beautiful. The shift is really nice as well...you can see a nice purple color when you move around in different lighting. Formula and application were both great. I used 3 thin coats for total opaqueness and finished with topcoat.
The other Anniversary polish is Made Of Stars, a dark blue to burgundy shifty polish with large holo particles. This is is so AMAZING! I am totally in love with it! That dark blue shade is mesmerizing and the holo particles look like stars floating in space. Then it shifts to that fuchsia shade then darker purple. If you are only going to pick one from the collection I highly suggest this is the one you go for. The formula was a bit on the thick side but it didn't give me any difficultly during application. I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.
And now the Fan Group Customs! In A Mood is a dark blue polish with large and small holo particles. This is another amazing shade of blue where the holo bits seem to be floating about in the base. Formula was super opaque! I had full coverage in 1 coat. I did apply this over a peel off base coat so I can't speak to whether it stains or not, but this shade of blue is always problematic for me so I'd suggest using a base coat just to be on the safe side. I finished with a layer of topcoat for a gorgeous, glossy finish.
Last but not least is Middle Distance, a peachy coral polish with a slight orange shift. It's also packed with small and large holo particles! I'm loving those holo particles, they really add a nice touch of sparkle and bling to each of these polishes. This is my other favorite of the ones in this post. The slight shift to orange is so, so, SO beautiful! I like that it's subtle but still definitely noticeable. Formula and application were both great. I used 2 coats for full coverage and finished up with topcoat.
