Liquid Sky Lacquer Cozy Autumn Nights Collection

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Tonight I have Liquid Sky Lacquer's Cozy Autumn Nights Collection to share with you. This collection consists of 4 polishes including 2 glittery jellies and 2 glitter toppers. All of these have ultrachrome flakies in them as well! Fall really gets me in the mood for glitters (I feel like I haven't worn them much at all this summer) so I was very excited for these! The Cozy Autumn Nights Collection launches this Saturday, September 5th at 2 PM PST in Liquid Sky Lacquer's shop.

First up I have the two glittery jellies. These started out sheer, but built up to a nice squishy coverage at 3 coats. As I have found with most squishy jellies, you definitely need to wait a bit between coats to prevent dragging. They are both packed with glitter, but were easy to smooth out with a coat of a thicker topcoat. I decided to show them both on their own at 3 coats as well as 1 coat over a coordinating base color in case you want to wear them that way.

Crisp Air*Dark Nights*Bright Stars is a tealy blue jelly filled with red, orange, brown, and caramel glitters as well as tons of green/purple shifting ultrachrome flakies. This polish was really packed with ultrachrome flakies, so you actually got a really nice color shift to purple when you move your fingers. This was such a strange mix of colors to me initially, but somehow it all worked to make a really cozy polish for fall! I think that in the end, I preferred the look of this one layered over a dark base, but when you built it up on its own the color shift was really nice (you can see it better in the macro).

Warm Berry Pie is a squishy berry jelly filled with red, orange, and berry glitters as well as purple/pink ultra chrome flakies. The name is so perfect for this one, because I definitely see berry pie when I look at it. This one stood out to me immediately when I saw pictures of the collection and it is a stunner! I think I like this one better on its own because it's just so squishy and has a ton of depth, but it looks nice layered too, so either way it's a winner!

Next I have the two glitter toppers from the collection. Formula on both of these was top notch with the perfect amount of glitter coverage in 1 coat over your base of choice. I love the size of the glitters too because they are large enough to be bold, but not super chunky so they are easy to get glassy smooth with just 1 coat of topcoat.

Cuddling by the Campfire is a cool toned glitter topper filled with burgundy, blue, orange, and brown glitter as well as a multitude of blue/purple ultra chrome flakies. This is the more cool toned of the two glitter toppers and I was really smitten with it over this smoky blue base! Again, such a fun mix of colors that are perfect for fall and there are tons of layering possibilities!

Turning Leaves is a warm toned glitter topper filled with red, orange, purple, blue, and brown glitters as well as warm pinky purple ultrachrome flakies. Like I said, this is the more warm toned of the two glitter toppers and I thought it looked so fun over the light orange base. All of the colors of the turning leaves are represented so well here!
