Press samples ahead!
I’m actually awake before 4pm. This. This doesn’t happen often. And what’s more? I’ve even showered already AND I’m blogging. I feel like a whole new person!
…Okay, maybe that’s stretching it. But, today is my day off, and I figured why not get a blog post up before we leave this evening? Connie over at Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer created 5 gorgeous small batch beauties for the month, and I was lucky enough to swatch them.
Now, when I say small batch, I mean small batch. Once these are gone, they’re gone for good and that’s sad because I’m pretty sure there’s a few here that every nail lacquer-loving human should have. Trufax. Anywho. LEHGGO.
Marley; a warm pearlized peach shade with a pink flash. This one is hard to describe, but it’s straight up gorgeous. It’s such a summery, juicy shade, and goes on smoothly in two thin coats. Because of the pearlized finish, it can look almost metallic and sometimes brush strokes show up if you overwork the polish. I didn’t have any major issues with that, but if you’re someone that worries about it, you can definitely try sponging on the last coat to minimize the chance of the strokes showing up!
Hayden; a pearly light pink. I did have some slight issues with brushstrokes on this one, but y’know what? This polish is so dang pretty and dainty that I don’t even mind it one bit. I absolutely love the color, it’s just classy. All of these were super opaque and super smooth when applying, so two thin coats and top coat and we were all good to go!
Bhodi; a raspberry jelly with gold shimmer. I’m hesitant to call it a raspberry shade, but in one coat, and in some photos, you can see that it pulls that way. However! Once you hit the second coat, it turns into a vampy pinky red, and the gold just takes it to a whole other level. Be still, my heart!
Kai; a vampy metallic berry shade. This one was a bit on the thicker side, but not in a bad way at all. It was nearly opaque in one coat, but I went back for a second just out of habit. This color, though. Oh my word, it’s sexy and seductive and just. Unf. So good!
Declan; a bright and true royal purple with a strong warm flash and a bit of scattered holo glitters. Hi. This one? Yeah. It’s my favorite. I’m sure you already knew that. But if you didn’t? Yeah. It’s favorite. It’s just… friggen delicious and juicy and oh my lord. Brb, painting the walls of our house with this one. But just look at it, seriously. It’s got some serious depth, almost as if it were a jelly polish, but nope. Just. Pure. Purple. Magic.
And there we have it! These are available now in very limited quantity for $11 (plus shipping) each. Do you have a favorite? Are any of these on your wishlist?
While you’re grabbing these, be sure to check out the rest of what’s in Connie’s shop over at seventysevennaillacquer.com! She’s also got a super pretty mystery polish listed for the month of June, and y’all. It’s breathtaking.
And with that, I’m out for the day! I’ll be back tomorrow with some more nail polish goodies! I hope y’all have a lovely day, and I seriously appreciate you fine nerds stopping by! <3
