I can't tell you guys how excited I was when Jessica from Jonesy Lou Lacquer emailed me asking if I would like to swatch for her upcoming collection. This collection is called the "Shaolin Collection" inspired by Wu Tang, it consists of 4 polishes, Protect Ya NeckRockin' the Gold Tooth, C.R.E.A.M. and Liquid Swords.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure policy located in the tabs above.**

Up first is Liquid Swords (my swatches are in reverse order from the pictures shown above).

(Shown with flash)

Liquid Swords is a molten charcoal polish with holo shimmer. It's completely opaque in 2 coats, although I decided to use 3. This polish applies very evenly and is very different from any silver I own. I was a little bit confused when I first applied this one because I didn't realize that the black pieces were supposed to be kind of chunky…but it is a very fun and unique silver! 

C.R.E.A.M. is a glitter bomb with gold, copper and green glitters. I am SOO impressed with this glitter topper! I applied one coat over China Glaze, Def Defying and it applied very smooth. I hardly had to do any glitter placement with this polish, which is very impressive! The other thing I really like about this polish is that it is the same color combo as my High School colors :)

Rockin' the Gold Tooth is a gold holo glitter topper with large and small holo squares. I am mesmerized by this polish! I couldn't decide what color it would look better over, so I used China Glaze, Are You Jelly? and Turned Up Turquoise, and I love them both! I applied 1-ish coat…I say ish because I did have to place all of the big glitters. Overall, very pretty! I love the big square glitters!! I haven't ever seen that before.

Protect Ya Neck is a yellow and black glitter bomb filled with yellow and black hexes and holo shimmer. I love this polish! The bottle reminds me of bumble bees lol…who wouldn't think that? I layered this fun glitter over the top of Sinful Colors, Endless Blue and Snow Me White. I did have to place some of the glitters which wasn't a problem, the only problem I had with this polish was that it kind of clumped up at the neck of the bottle, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Overall, I'm in love!

I give you permission to laugh when I say this, but when I look at these bottles of polish I get really excited! Like I am totally in love with them! :D Jessica, you did an AMAZING job with this collection and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to swatch them. 

If you guys would like this collection it will be released March 3 (so you won't have to wait very long!). The polishes will be $8 each and I highly recommend them. Especially if you like Wu Tang :P I have to admit, and I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this…I didn't know who Wu Tang was until after Jessica told me the inspiration for this collection. I had to go on Google to figure it out, and I'm really shocked I never knew who they were…but my fiance did! Shocking! Normally I have to keep him up to speed lol…any who, I hope you guys enjoyed these swatches and look forward to more! :)
