Nail Lacquer UK Swatches

Hello lovelies. I hope we all had a good weekend. I am off to Cyprus tomorrow for a week of sun and a much needed break from work. But I have been painting my nails like crazy for the past few weeks so I still have some posts scheduled to show you. I have never scheduled a post before though so I hope it works lol, I guess we shall find out :).

Anyway, today I have some swatches to show you. I am not much of a swatchy person, I much prefer to post nail art as I think it more interesting. However I loved these polishes so much I just had to share them! I had been eyeing up Nail Lacquer UK's etsy store for a little while and I finally caved and bought a few to try out. 

This post is quite picture heavy so click the jump for all the swatches.

Aren't the bottles cute?! They all come with a little charm which I think is a really great touch. Also included in my orders were some lovely nail decals, which I have used along with my swatches. It was first time using nail decals, but I have fallen in love lol. 

First up we have Midnight.

Midnight is a blue jelly base with pink circle glitter, little holo hexes and little silver and blue micro glitters (I suck at describing glitter). This is two coats over a blue creme (I forgot which one, oops) but I think it could be built to opacity on its own. The formula was good, I did have fish for the larger glitters a bit but you kinda come to expect that with these types of polishes. It really was beautiful, I don't think my pictures did it justice.

I loved this decal. On my ring finger is Barry M - Lychee.

Here is a dodgy phone snap which shows the glitter better, I had it on for a few days at this point so please excuse the tip wear.

Next up we have Twilight Sparkle.

Twilight Sparkle is a milky purple base with different sized white hexes, little white and purple squares and tiny purple hexes. This is 3 coats on its own, the first layer was a bit sheer but it built up easily. I didn't have to fish for glitters at all in this one.

Finally we have my favourite.. Golden Apple.

Golden Apple is a green duochrome with a gold shift, I love it so much! I have nothing else like this in my stash. The formula was good, I used 3 coats here but I think 2 would have been sufficient if I hadn't rushed the application. If you go over the same spot twice you do get a few bald spots, so you need to make sure each layer is dry before you add the next one. I was expecting this to show brush strokes up really easily, it did a tiny bit but its not really that noticeable so I was very pleased.

I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I was wearing this one.

So overall I really loved these polishes and would definitely recommend them. I will definitely be getting some more. I got full size bottles which are £6.50 but there are a few mini ones available which are £3.50, so very affordable in my opinion.

Just to make it clear I bought this polishes with my own money and all these views are my own, I really do just love them that much lol.

Have you tried anything from this brand? What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
