Good afternoon lovelies! :) I hope you are all having a great week! Today I have some beautiful neon jellies to share with you from Doctor Lacquer's new Kaleidoscope Collection :)
I was so excited to receive these from Doctor Lacquer right before the wedding, and it's been killing me to have had to wait this long to swatch them (wedding, honeymoon, etc. :P) but I finally did it and I love them!
Just before I get to the swatches I want to say that these polishes should be swatched over a white base color just to help with opacity and to make them pop! But, unfortunately my white polish wasn't behaving for me so I just applied a few coats of each color to my liking.
**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**
Up first is Lutein. This is a really fun, and extremely bright neon yellow :) I'm sure with the white coat underneath, all of these polishes would only need 1-2 coats, but this is 3 with no white coat. I wish my white polish would have behaved because the swatches could be brighter and pop more, but either way in my opinion these polishes just speak for themselves :P
Carotene is more of a Sunflower yellow in person, even though these photos show it as more of a light orange. I like both looks of it :)
This beautiful color is Lycopene, which is actually more orange than red, but again the photo kind of alters the color...either way it's still gorgeous :)
At first glance this one, Annato and the next one, Hemoglobin look like they could be dupes, but Annato is more of a bright candy colored pink, whereas Hemoglobin is more of a pink with purple undertones.
Can you see the difference? Hemoglobin is so pretty! They both are! I really like that even though these are jellies which are usually not very opaque, the 2 pinks and the orange were opaque in 2 coats without a white base coat.
Betalain is stunning! I love the way this color looks against my skin tone.
Blue! You all know I love blue! :) Phycocyanin reminds me of cotton candy blue for some reason...or just blue candies in general. LOL, I'm not sure which now!
And last up for the jellies is Chlorophyll. I love this one so much I kept it on once I was done swatching :) ...even though this one took 3-4 coats the thing that I loved was that these polishes dry so fast! Each coat is so thin that I don't have to wait long to apply another coat, plus adding more coats doesn't really make the polish to thick on my nail like regular polish.
And last one for this post, this is Refraction an absolutely beautiful, fun neon glitter topper! This is the perfect polish for summer :) The combination of this plus any of these neon jellies is so fun! They are bright and bubbly and I could seriously wear them all summer!
I did get another polish that goes along with this collection, Reflection which is a silver chrome holo. I didn't get a chance to swatch it just yet because I lost my lighting, but I'll come up with some fun designs with it for another post :)
Thank you for taking a few minutes to look over this post, I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you to Angelyn, from Doctor Lacquer for sending me these polishes! I absolutely love them!!
