Regal Ween Lacquer - Gotta Catch'em All Collection

42 comments

TGIF. It's freaking Friday, time to blast the music and polish the night away. Okay, so that's what I do every night, but still I am happy for the weekend. Moving right along though, today I have another collection throwing me way back into my childhood. Say hello to the Gotta Catch'em All Collection by Regal Ween Lacquer! This set consists of four glitter toppers based on some of my favorite Pokemon from the beloved series.

Regal Ween Lacquer - Pokemon Collection

The Gotta Catch'em All Collection by Regal Ween Lacquer is a limited edition set that is now available for purchase. What's even better is that right now all of these are available at sale price $5.50 each ($4.00 for Gengar) for a full size bottle! The complete set of four in full size bottles is also available at sale price for $18.00.

Gengar #094
Regal Ween Lacquer - Gengar

Gengar is a glitter topper with holo purple hexes, purple ultra fine glitter, red mini hexes and black shreds in a clear base. Talk about a glitter explosive! Unfortunately the glitters in this polish do bleed and cause the clear base to have a pinkish tint. The price for this one has been reduced as well due to the bleeding. If you plan on layering for full coverage, the tint ends up working out but otherwise you'll have to be wary of the base you choose. I opted for a full coverage look by applying one thin layer and then dabbing on an additional layer or two. The formula for this is very thick and chunky. The consistency makes dabbing the layers a must for a smoother finish. I sealed off my swatch with two layers of Seche Vite topcoat because of the massive amount of glitters.

Vulpix #037

Vulpix is a glitter bomb with two shades of orange hexes, mini red hexes and copper bars in a clear base. Doesn't this just look fiery? The color to glitter combination is the perfect representation of the Pokemon. The formula is much better, however the consistency for the glitter base is a little on the thin side. Because of the thin consistency I had a bit of a hard time spreading the glitters evenly and in some cases they tended to clump together. For these swatches, I used two thin layers over a red base color and sealed it off with Seche Vite.


Lapras #131

Lapras is a glitter bomb that has powder blue diamonds, matte gray hexes, holo blue squares and white holo dust in a clear base. I am simply blown away by how beautiful this glitter-bomb is! It has a very aquatic/frozen type of feeling to it. Definitely my favorite among the four-set. The formula and consistency for this one are both spot on for the heavy glitters. Not too thick or too thin, each layer applies evenly throughout without the glitter clumping up. For these swatches, I used two thin layers over a bright blue base color and sealed it off with Seche Vite.


Clefairy #035

Clefairy is a pink circle glitter, white holo dust, iridescent shreds and hexes, and pink ultra fine dust in a clear base. The iridescent shreds add such a nice touch to this one, it sets a tone for that magical vibe. The formula for this one was good, except there was minor fishing involved for the larger circle glitters. Considering the largeness of the glitters, I was pleasantly surprised that the application was not thicker. For these swatches, I used two thin layers over a pink base color and sealed it off with Seche Vite.


Overall I find myself in a love/hate relationship with these glitter toppers. Although I love the end result, I hated the process of getting there. The glitter toppers were a bit tough to work with until you get the hang of the consistency. Lapras and Clefairy had the best application among the four-set and applied without having to dab. That said, I can see myself wearing these as accent nails to a simple manicure but probably not as a full mani themselves. As I mentioned before, the Gotta Catch'em All Collection by Regal Ween Lacquer is available at sale price $5.50 each ($4.00 for Gengar) for a full size bottle. The complete set of four in full size bottles is also available at sale price for $18.00.

Tell me guys, did you ever like Pokemon as a kid? Have a nice weekend!

  1. Oh, Gengar, how I love you so. Have to admit I was never much of a Pokefan, but I did love Jigglypuff and Squirtle on the tv show. Of course, that was about a million years ago, and I'm probably totally uncool for picking common characters.
