Leesha's Lacquer - Polish Pick Up - April 2018

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! I'm here with my last polish for Polish Pickup and we are only two days away. Time to check those wishlists... and add any you've been resisting. Trust me ladies, living in the land of polish regret is not ideal for the soul. Of course, I do have another to tempt you with. I'm here to enable you, it's like what I do haha. For today I'm sharing swatches for Northern Lights by Leesha's Lacquer, which is the April contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. I haven't swatched for this brand in a very long time, so I'm obviously double excited to see their growth. Without further ado, let's go ahead and get into the swatches!

Leesha's Lacquer - Polish Pickup April 2018

Northern Lights by Leesha's Lacquer will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop Friday, April 6th at 11AM EST through April 9th. The full-size 15mL shade will retail for $10 each and there is a cap at 150 bottles this month.

If you're not familiar with the concept, the Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. As I mentioned before, the theme that was voted for April is Across the Universe. For this theme, Alicia found her inspiration in the Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as the northern lights.

Northern Lights can be described as a gorgeous shifty shimmer that transitions from green to purple in different lighting and also filled with different sized holo small glitters. This polish had me at shimmer and then sent me into overdrive with the color shift. I'm decreased you guys. I had a hard time capturing the shimmer on camera, but it's much more visible in person. And actually I really ended up loving the unique tone of the green, it looked really good against my skin. The base has a luminescent glow that really captures the inspiration perfectly. It's all around such a fantastic polish and definitely a must have if you don't own something similar.

The formula has a very sheer application that builds up well for full coverage. It does feel sheer enough that it could double as just a topper, though I did not test this out myself. Consistency wise it's nicely balanced, not too thick or too thin. There are minimal brush strokes during the application, but they ended up blending out on their own. It dries down to a semi-satin and minimally gritty finish that smooths out after topcoat. Shown here in three coats plus a glossy topcoat.
