Road to Polish Con Spring 2018 | Week 2 - Lollipop Posse Lacquer and Anchor & Heart Lacquer

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! It's almost a full week and I'm still just as sick if not worse. The worst part is the fever, which breaks only momentarily before shooting back up. Let's not forget the cough that sounds like my soul is dying. Yeah... it's not looking good for Rose, haha. But the show must go on and I'm here with more pretty polishes. Today I'm sharing swatches for Week Two of the Road to Polish Con, which features two of my favorite brands Lollipop Posse Lacquer and Anchor & Heart Lacquer. If you're not familiar with the RTPC series let me briefly explain. Each week leading up to the Polish Con event I'll be sharing 2-3 polishes from the brands vendoring - there will be a total of 11 weeks. Now with all that being said, let's go ahead and get right into the swatches!

Lollipop Posse Lacquer - Merry Wanderer Of The Night
Lollipop Posse Lacquer - Merry Wanderer Of The Night

Merry Wanderer Of The Night can be described as a teal-leaning green crelly with red/green/gold shifting aurora pigment, various sizes of iridescent green and chameleon glitters, silver holographic micro shimmer and gold flakes. The shade is inspired by that cramp Puck, of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream. "Thou speak'st aright. I am that merry wanderer of the night."

Where do I even begin with this polish?! Oh... I know... THAT SHIMMER! More specifically the aurora pigment sent down from the nail gods. It's unreal how dimensional and complex the finish is, needless to say my photos don't do it justice. The color shifts in person are beyond intense and obviously gorgeous. The color is stunning against my skin-complexion and really it meshes against any skin-tone. I'm gushing at this point, it's aces all around and a must-have.

The formula has a sheer application that easily builds-up for full coverage. Consistency wise it's well balanced, not too thick or too thin. The flakes disperse perfectly across the nail without clumping and layer beautiful in between coats. To me it gives off an almost jelly vibe with that squishy layered finish. It dries down to a textured finish due to all the flakes, but does smooth out after a thick layer of topcoat. I experienced no staining on removal to either my nail beds or cuticles. Shown here in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

A Fairy Enchantment can be described a medium purple holo with a dancing flash created by purple iridescent micro glitter and electric blue micro flakes. The shade is inspired by a photo of a performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream.

I'm just going to state the obvious here... those electric blue flakes are EVERYTHING. Talk about giving a polish a 'wow' factor! I'm definitely surprised by how beautifully the blue stands out against the base. Not only is it very bright, but it does well to not clash against the gentle tone of the purple. It's simply a stunning shade, enough shade. The hue does bring out a little pinkish warmth from my skin-tone, but it's not too much to clash against the color for me.

The formula has a sheer application that builds-up easily for full coverage. I didn't get a chance to test it due to being sick, but I do feel like one thin coat could work beautifully as a topper. The consistency is well balanced and layers with ease. I was almost expecting a bit of thickness considering the nature of the finish, but I was pleasantly surprise at smooth it was. It dries down to a gritty finish that smooths out perfectly after topcoat. Shown here in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
