Hello nail friends :) Tonight I bring you another new to me indie polish! Mira, the owner/creator of Lolita Lacquer sent me these few things to review. The polish duo will be available on October 9th! Omg how cute is that pumpkin?!?! So lets get right to it! The names of the polishes were on the bottom of the bottle but one popped off and for picture purposes I thought it was neat on the cap!
First up is Horchata. I am not Spanish so I had to look this up (sorry!!). Horchata is a warm creamy drink. This polish is a good fit to its name judging by the pics I saw on google. It is a bright white crème polish with a ton of fine gold shimmer. I die! I am such a sucker for shimmer! And when it is added to a nice crème formula its even better! A total winner! Its for Halloween but this would be gorgeous at Christmas time and for anyone getting married!!!!! Love it :) I used 2 medium coats and a glossy top coat. Formula was smooth and opaque. I did have trouble getting the shimmer to show up in pics so there are quite a few pics so you can get the idea! :)

The second half of the Dia de Los Muertos duo is called Festival. This is a sheer black polish with multiple colored and sized, hex and square glitters. The polish built up nicely and was totally opaque in 3 thin coats. No glitter fishing required. I didn't even need to flip it upside down or anything! Great polishes with no complaints at all.

I also got this adorable Candy Corn Jack O'Lantern mani bomb! It smelled so sweet and yummy! And it had a good strong fizz for at least 30 seconds. That may not seem like much but I have tried a few that barely lasted the length of an Instagram video. And the sizes were almost the exact same! The video I have is only 16 seconds because I wanted to get my hands in before the fizzing ended. I loved the amount of oils in this. You could see it very clearly at the top of the water through out the soaking. I soaked for about 10 minutes. I removed polish then immediately took a before pic. After the soak, I patted my hands dry then took an after pic. No lotions or oils or anything like that were added. As I type, an hour or so later, my hands are still soft and smell sooooo good! Check Out my results and video!!
|Ingredients: citric acid, sodium bicarbonate, white clay, tapioca starch, sunflower oil, shea butter, fragrance oil, color (iron oxide), and isopropyl alcohol.|
