CDB Lacquer - Valentine's Day Duo

30 comments

Hi everyone! Happy Monday. I've had a whirl wind morning rushing into work in the icy snow. Not fun. I had to drop off my hubs at work, because his car wouldn't start. We're like the family of car trouble, haha. Here's hoping this all gets resolved quickly and more importantly without breaking the bank. A girl needs her Valentine polishes after all. Speaking of which... For today I finally have swatches of the Valentine's Day Duo by CDB Lacquer. These are the first for the holiday I'm reviewing, so I'm definitely excited. Let's take a look:

CDB Lacquer - Valentine's Day Duo

The Valentine's Day Duo by CDB Lacquer is now available for purchase. Keep in mind these are limited edition and once sold out, they will not be restocked. Also limited edition is the February Monthly Holo. I'll have swatches of that later on this week.

Deep Desire

Deep Desire is a glitter-bomb packed with red and garnet micro glitters as well as silver flakies. Every purchase of this polish comes with a small baggie of red, black and holo silver heart glitters. It almost reminds me of something straight out of 50 Shades of Grey. I absolutely adore the glitter and color combination. It's an effortless gorgeous mani that needs nothing else. Perfect if you're running late for your date on that special day, haha. Great formula and consistency, it gave me no issues layering for an opaque finish. For these swatches, I applied two smooth layers and sealed with a top coat.

Sweet Kisses is a glitter-bomb packed with pink, white and silver glitters. Every purchase of this polish comes with a small baggie of pink, white and holo silver heart glitters. You guys know that I have been a big fan of the polishes that CDB Lacquer has been putting out lately. Unfortunately, Sweet Kisses falls short and leaves a little bit to be desired. The formula applies smoothly, but this does require dabbling on the layers in order for the glitters to build-up. Personally, I don't like how 'chunky' all the glitters are. In order to build up for an opaque finish, you end up dabbing so much it looks textured. I recommend opting to use it over a base color instead of layering. For these swatches I applied one thin coat, dabbed on two additional coats, and then sealed it with a glossy topcoat.

Overall I'm not as head over heels as I usually find myself for CDB Lacquer. Deep Desire is definitely my favorite of the duo, hands down. Photos don't do that one any justice, but it also helps that the shade compliments my skin-tone so well. Which one is your favorite guys?

  9. Valentine's collections are always pretty hard for me to love because I'm not a real pinky-red type of gal. That being said though, I am rather charmed by these glitter combos!

  17. I like the sweet kisses...the Deep Desire is a tad too dark for my taste--maybe just tips is a style I could pull off =D

  18. Deep desire looks amazing and super smooth. I always hate it when glitter nail polishes are so rough and I haven't found the right top coat yet

  21. I actually haven't found any of the V-Day polishes to be a must-have for me. I think it might be that I'm not in the "spirit" of V-Day...
