Lilypad Lacquer September 2016 New Releases (Part Five) - Swatches & Review

Friday, 23 September 2016


Melbourne decided to turn on a little bit of sun again the other day (including a sun shower which made swatching certainly interesting) so I managed to complete all of my swatches of the new releases from Lilypad Lacquer.  Yay!  I will have all links to all of the other new releases at the bottom of this post.  In case you are curious and have missed out on any so far there are a total of thirty new polishes.  So many pretties.  Right now let's take a look at the final seven polishes shall we?


There are a couple of things I should note before jumping in.  The day that I swatched these the sun was very hit and miss.  When it was out it wasn't always that strong so some of these polishes are more holo than they may appear in some of my photos.  Also, all pictures are shown without any top coat.

Beet This is a vivid magenta holo.  Now this polish screams my name.  I started drooling as soon as I saw this oneThe formula is fantastic, it applies evenly and is opaque in two coats.  And the colour is to die for.  Seriously!

Nightingale is a black holo with a golden hue.  This one I found dragged a little when you applied polish over the same spot so minimal brush strokes are needed for this one (mainly on the first coat).  My swatch shows two coats.

Nightshade is an eggplant holo.  The formula is great and easy to use.  For my swatch I used two coats.

Nu-clear Pink is a neon pink holo. This one is quite a pretty colour,  It is a little on the sheer side.  I found that I had a slight visible nail line still after three coats.  I would wear this one over a white base next time.

Phantom is a deep pink toned purple.  Nice colour and good formula.  My swatch shows three coats.

Shockwave is a bright royal blue holo.  I think this one would make a fantastic base for some galaxy or night sky nail art.  The formula is awesome and so close to being a one coater.  My swatch shows two coats.

S-tealing The Show is a rich teal holo.  Really pretty colour with a great formula.  My swatch shows two coats.

There are so many gorgeous colours in this lot of the releases.  My personal favorite maybe out of all thirty of the polishes would have to be Beet This.  I also really like Nu-clear Pink, Phantom, Shockwave and S-tealing The Show.
