Finger Lickin Lacquer - Spring In Your Step

72 comments

Hiya guys. How's it going today? It's mid-week and I think it's about time I start being a little more productive around the house... Nah, I think I'll keep playing with polishes instead haha. I can't help it with all these gorgeous spring collections popping up left and right. It's a good thing I picked up my fourth and fifth helmer last weekend! Anyway, for today I have the beautiful Spring collection from Finger Lickin Lacquer to show you guys. The entire collection consists of six polishes and there will also be a themed cuticle oil released as well. Let's get to the swatches!

Finger Lickin Lacquer - Spring In Your Step

The Spring In Your Step by Finger Lickin Lacquer will be releasing on Friday, March 20th and will retail for $9.00 each. Mark your calendars! 

Finger Lickin Lacquer - Spring In Your Step

“There’s nothing like spring - especially here in the South! It’s time to break out the sandals and the Easter dresses and gear up for everything from egg hunts to the Carolina Cup to watching the first blossoms of spring appear,” says Finger Lickin’ Lacquer owner Jennifer Diringer. “There’s no better way to celebrate this season than with some lusciously scented polishes that evoke so many wonderful spring memories!”

Lilac Festival

Lilac Festival is a beautiful violet holo with tiny yellow flakies. Absolutely stunning! I know I'm just getting started on this review, but this is hands-down my favorite from the whole collection. Even better is the flawlessly smooth formula and application. For these swatches, I used three thin coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Eat Me

Eat Me is a warm cocoa crelly with pastel pink and blue flecks throughout. What's better than a polish that looks like chocolate? One that smells like it too! I normally don't like scented polishes much, but the smell here is so subtle and pleasant. The formula was a little thin and tended to flood my cuticles as I applied it. However, I was very impressed with the sparse glitter variety and quantity in each brush stroke. For these swatches, I used three thin coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen is a coral holo with golden flakie finish. I'll admit the photos are not entirely color accurate for this particular shade, coral is a very hard color to capture. That said, the gold flakies are very subtle and mesh well with the coral. It's a fantastic delicate color for the season. Similar to Lilac Festival, the formula was really great and applied very easily. For these swatches, I used three thin coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.

She Works Hard for the Honey

She Works Hard for the Honey is a clear glitter topper filled with black and yellow small glitters and larger black dots. I had a hard time deciding what kind of base to use for this polish, but since it was bee-like I had to go with white. The formula was amazing and the glitters spread evenly without the need to dab any extra layers. The larger black glitters did have to be fished out and placed, but I prefer it this way for a neater finished look. For these swatches, I used three thin coats over a white base and sealed it off with a glossy topcoat.

Quite Contrary

Quite Contrary is a cream with the slightest hint of green and pink flakies. This one is definitely my second-favorite from the whole collection and also a must-have. I love the unique neural shade with the bit of colored micro glitters. Excellent formula and consistency that builds up evenly with each layer. For these swatches, I used three thin coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Birthday Suit

Birthday Suit is a nude crelly with confetti-like flecks of pastel glitters. Another subtle scented polish that smells of - you guessed it - birthday cake! Although I adore the base and glitter combination, I wish it could be a little less sheer. The formula tended to be a little thin with each layer and I had to build up quite a bit to get an opaque finish. However, I will say the glitters did not give me any trouble and there was no fishing involved even though they are slightly bigger. For these swatches, I used three to four thin coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Now let's talk cuticle oil... The cuticle oil shown here is being released with the Spring In Your Step Collection on March 20th. The scent is themed around Spring and smells of 'grass'. Originally, I thought it was an odd scent, but I have fallen head over heals with it throughout my week of use. It has a very pleasant, but not overbearing smell. I have been using it non-stop through my swatch-sessions and it keeps my cuticles well hydrated too. I actually swatched all the polishes in this review back-to-back and used this oil in between swatches. My photos have no editing besides adding of the watermark and you can see how good my cuticles look!

Finger Lickin Lacquer - Cuticle Oil

Overall the Spring in Your Step Collection has completely pulled me into Spring and pastels. Although not all of them are for me, there are a few that really stand out like Lilac Festival. The cuticle oil is a definite recommendation if you're looking for a new one to try out. I know I will definitely be stocking up for my long swatch-sessions. The Spring In Your Step by Finger Lickin Lacquer will be releasing on Friday, March 20th and will retail for $9.00 each.

Tell me guys, what do you think of this collection? Which one is your favorite?
