Hi everyone! Today I have a sampling of some gorgeous Lilypad Lacquers to share with you that Color4Nails sent for me to try out. I am a Lilypad newbie, but I have often admired their polishes. I must say that my first experience has left me beyond impressed with these pretties, so much so that I've worn several of these as full manis this past week. You know, sometimes you get polishes that look OK in the bottle and then turn to magic once you get them on your nails? I found that to be the case with SEVERAL of these!
Break the Rules (Color4Nails Exclusive) is a violet/teal base color shifting shade with multichrome and colorshifting flakies. Formula started off a little sheer, but built up nicely to opacity in 3 thin coats. This polish is packed with all sorts of goodness and there are pops of a rainbow of colors when you move your fingers around.
Guilty Pleasures (Color4Nails Exclusive) is a green/copper color shifting shade with multichrome and color shifting flakies. Formula builds up really nicely and easily to opacity in 3 thin coats. This is one of my absolute favorites that I tried! I adore green polish and this one has some magical qualities about it!
Love Me or Leave Me (Color4Nails Exclusive) has a reddish brown base with green/red color shifting shimmer and multichrome and color shifting flakies. Great coverage in 3 thin coats. This is a very unique shade and and the dramatic red/green shift makes it look so different in different lights.
Dreams Come True is has a violet base with gold/green color shifting shimmer and flakies. Formula started off sheer but built up nicely in 3 thin coats. This green shift to this was my favorite part! It's a beautiful and complex shade, which I found to be true about many of these Lilypads!
Magic at Midnight is a navy/teal base with multicolored, multichrome, colorshifting flakies and purple/gold color shifting shimmer. Very much the same formula as Dreams Come True with full coverage in 3 thin coats. Wowsers, such gorgeous complexity again! This one had a galaxy-esque quality to it.
I couldn't resist matting this one as well. I used KBShimmer's new Oh Matte! topcoat to make this gorgeous effect!
Utopia is a medium cool purple holo filled with pinky purple shimmer. Formula was excellent and I used 2 coats for full coverage. OMG...I have a lot of purple holos so it takes a lot to impress me with a purple holo but I didn't want to take this beauty off! The pink shimmer is absolutely glowy and divine. I had a beast of a time trying to capture this one because my camera really wanted to focus in on the cool bluish purple base, but in real life the extreme pink shimmer makes this one lean warmer in some lights (so my is definitely not very accurate, despite my best efforts). I love this one so much I've already worn it twice!
Evergreen is a bottle green linear holo. Formula was superb and I used 2 coats for full coverage. What impressed me most about this shade was that it is a deep dark green that doesn't look black at ALL. That is very hard to accomplish in my experience, so kudos to Lilypad for accomplishing this!
Roasted is a hazelnut brown creamy holo with multicolored flakies and brownish green sheen. Formula was amazing and I used 2 coats for full coverage. OMG...this polish is such a winner! It's a gorgeous shade of brown and the flakes really set it off. This is another favorite of mine, if you couldn't tell.
