Good evening everyone! Today I'm excited to show you the new Spring Ahead collection of polishes from indie brand Alchemy Lacquers! This collection consists of six shimmery glitter crellies inspired by flowers--perfect for spring! Let's get started...
The formula on all these polishes was the same, so I'll talk about it first. They were all on the thinner side for glitter polishes and very easy to spread--not too thick but not too runny. I barely had to dab at all to get the glitters to distribute evenly!
I used three coats of each polish and they were all still a little sheer; this may be partly due to the fact that I was using mini bottles with smaller brushes. Occasionally the polish didn't want to self-level, which is more apparent with sheer polishes. Dry time was on the slower side. I used a coat of Out the Door over each.
Now let's take a look at each polish!
Alchemy Lacquers Lavendula is a lavender crelly with silver and purple shimmer and purple, blue and white glitter.
Alchemy Lacquers Borage is a pastel blue crelly with blue and silver shimmer and blue, purple and white glitter.
Alchemy Lacquers Nasturtium is a pastel orange crelly with silver and yellow shimmer and red, orange and yellow glitter.
Alchemy Lacquers Hyacinthus is a light purple crelly with silver and purple shimmer and purple, blue and grey glitter. This one was a little more sheer than the others.
Alchemy Lacquers Daffodil is a pastel yellow crelly with silver and yellow shimmer and yellow and white glitter.
Alchemy Lacquers Crocus is a light purple-pink crelly with silver and purple shimmer and purple, white and yellow glitter.
I think this is a cute collection! The polishes really capture the beauty of spring flowers! I would have liked them to be slightly more opaque, but obviously that's a personal preference. If you like pastels and/or glitter crellies, this collection would be perfect for you!
The Alchemy Lacquers Spring Ahead polishes are available at the Etsy shop ($8.50 for 12 ml), or you can buy the entire collection at once for a $4.50 discount! Alchemy Lacquers are 5-free! You can also like the brand on Facebook.
