SWATCH SUNDAY — Cadillacquer Leilani (Thermal)

•pr sample/gifted•

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week — 2022 hasn’t quite been my friend. I came down with the flu right before the new year, & even almost 2 weeks later I’m still just starting to feel like myself again. Which means, I need to get started with some fun January nails.

This week for Swatch Sunday, I have another gifted polish care of NailStuff.ca to share: Cadillacquer Leilani.

2 coats + top coat

Cadillaquer Leilani is a beautiful jelly blue thermal, which is packed full of multisized glitters, & shifty flakies. In it’s cool state, it is the funky blue colour you see in the bottle, but when your hands are warm (or when you dunk them in some nice hot water) the polish shifts to a semi sheer golden white colour.

The formula itself is quite easy to work with — not too gloopy or runny, which is good when you’re working with a shade which needs more coats. I went with two coats of polish, but I definitely could have applied another to hide the bit of sheerness it had while hot.

Below, you can see it in its “warm” state, after I dunked it in some hot water, as well as when my fingers started shifting back.

I’m always a sucker for thermal shades, & the dramatic colour difference between the hot & cold state of this one is really fun. As I’ve written before, I’ve been a sucker for thermal nail polish since my Claire’s “Mood” nail polish days, so it makes me so happy to still be able to play around with these shifty shades, even after all these years.

If you’re looking to add this shade to your collection, you can find it (& other Cadillacquer shades) for purchase via NailStuff.ca.

SWATCH SUNDAY — Superchic Lacquer Throwing Shade

{PR sample}

Good afternoon lovelies & happy Sunday!

Today I have a fun gifted polish to shade from you, thank was so graciously sent to me by my friend over at Nailstuff.ca.

On top of all the amazing nail art goodies, there is a fantastic selection of Indie polishes that you can also choose from! & today’s selection is from her awesome collection: Superchic Lacquer Throwing Shade.

This gorgeous Indigo liner holo applies in one coat! & has a flawless application. Sometimes I find holo polishes can be thin & drag, but I had zero problems applying Throwing Shade. I started off with 2 coats of base coat (based on what I’ve read online) followed by one coat of my polish & then sealed everything in with a glossy top coat.

Even with artificial lighting, you can see how awesome the shift of rainbows is both on the nail & in the bottle. If only we had another sunshine-y day to see it in all it’s true glory, but sadly we have another cloudy rainy day happening in Halifax. No worries… still completely distracted by how gorgeous this polish looks!

& below you can see it with flash. So. Much. Holo!
