Lemming Lacquer - Curiosities From Wonderland

50 comments

Hiya guys! Happy Earth Day! The day couldn't be more beautiful outside as we celebrate our environment. Today I'll be sharing with you the debut collection from Lemming Lacquer launching on Friday. The collection is called Curiosities From Wonderland and it is based on the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland.

Lemming Lacquer - Curiosities From Wonderland

Lemming Lacquer will be making its debut with the Curiosities From Wonderland Collection on April 24th at 12PM CST. There are a total of seven shades in this collection; one glitter topper, four jelly glitters, and two holographic polishes.

Ravens and Writing Desks
Lemming Lacquer - Ravens and Writing Desks

Ravens and Writing Desks has a teal-leaning green colored base with different sized holographic gold, lime green, and turquoise glitters and black hex glitters. I love how unique the color of the base is, it meshes so well with the glitter combination. It was almost completely opaque in a single layer, it was very surprising. The formula is fantastic with the consistency spreading evenly with each layer. Swatched here is two thin coats sealed in with Seche Vite topcoat.

Inspired by a combination of Hatter Madigan of The Looking Glass Wars series and the 1951 Disney Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter.

Drink Me
Lemming Lacquer - Drink Me

Drink Me is a lush purple jelly nail polish with small holographic hexes and large holographic circle glitters. Look at all that squishy jelly goodness! It's like I'm in jelly heaven. The application was sheer in the first coat, but it builds up evenly and without clumping.  Great formula and consistency. There is a little fishing involved with the larger circular glitters, but as I said it's very minimal. Swatched here are three thin coats sealed in with Seche Vite topcoat.

Inspired by the suspended “Drink Me” bottle and the subsequent purple bubbles Alice hiccups in shrink mode in the video game Alice: Madness Returns. Alice uses shrink vision to view hidden pathways and clues on upcoming enemies, puzzles, and invisible platforms.

Whooo R U? 
Lemming Lacquer - Whooo R U?

Whooo R U? is a smoky, duochrome gray holographic polish with pinkish purple hazy overtones and bright blue sparks of shimmer. I'm very captivated by the color, but the polish is not one of my favorites among the collection. The layering can be tricky due to the brush strokes causing it to streak with each layer. The consistency of each layer is good, but as I said the formula causes streaking to happen very easily. If you let each layer fully dry before applying the next the end result is beautiful. Swatched here is two thin coats sealed in with Seche Vite topcoat.

This polish embodies the Caterpillar’s languid smugness and captures the image of him taking long, cloudy drags off his hookah.

Her Imperial Viciousness

Her Imperial Viciousness is a jewel-toned red with different sized copper, red, and black glitters, color shifting iridescent glitters and a generous helping of black heart glitters. Definitely my favorite among the collection! The red and black is stunning and captures the essence of the villain perfectly. The formula was fantastic and applied very smoothly with ample glitters in each brush stroke. For a jelly consistency, I was surprised at how opaque it was in a single coat. Swatched here are just two thin coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

It is inspired by the character Redd Heart in The Looking Glass Wars series by Frank Beddor.

I'm Not All There Myself
Lemming Lacquer - I'm Not All There Myself

I'm Not All There Myself is a velvet purple to vibrant pink color changing jelly polish with various sized round and hex fuchsia glitters and purple hex glitters. Another gorgeous jelly with all the squishiness down pat. The shade looks beautifully bright and stunning along side the glitter colors. It has a good formula, however, the larger glitters like sticking together so it's best to dab a little as you apply each layer. Each layer is also on the sheer side, so it will take at least three layers to achieve an opaque finish.

The jelly finish allows the lower layers of glitter to show through to offer a multidimensional look as complex as the mischievous feline it's named for.

Curiouser and Curiouser
Lemming Lacquer - Curiouser and Curiouser

Curiouser and Curiouser! is a delicate pale sky blue holographic with a gold shimmer finish. Initially, I wasn't sure how I would feel about the light blue because I feared it would lean on boring. I was so wrong! The gold shimmers bring this polish to life and it's downright gorgeous. Formula was excellent and was almost completely opaque in a single coat. The consistency was also spot on and not too thick or too thin with each layer. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.

Modest, sincere, and girly this polish personifies the innocent female protagonist we all know and love.

Eat Me
Lemming Lacquer - Eat Me

Eat Me is packed with small and medium sized matte glitters in all the colors of rainbow sprinkles. This is a clear glitter topper so I layered the rainbow glitters over a nude toned base. Doesn't it remind you of a vanilla cupcake with sprinkles? Very cute and so cheery. The consistency was excellent for such a heavy amount of glitter, which made the application really smooth. For the second layer, I dabbed on the glitters for nice even coverage. Swatched here is two thin coats over a nude base and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.

“Eat Me” is written on the cakes Alice eats to grow large after tumbling down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.  This polish is inspired by the colorful baked treats in Alice in Wonderland and multi-colored sprinkles.

Overall Lemming Lacquer is coming out strong in it's debut collection! I've been a fan of Alice in Wonderland since I was a child and had high exceptions for this collection as soon as I laid eyes on it. The formula for the jelly polishes struck me the most and I definitely recommend them. Not only do they have a beautiful squishy finish, but most of them are actually very opaque. This collection definitely has me excited to see what the future holds for Lemming Lacquer.

Lemming Lacquer will be making its debut with the Curiosities From Wonderland Collection on April 24th at 12PM CST.


Tell me guys, which one was your favorite Alice in Wonderland representation?
