Hi everyone! How have you been? Happy Fall Season for all of you living in the Northern Hemisphere :) Today I have such a special Fall collection to share with all of you! This the first time ever on my blog I shall be highlighting an entire Indie nail polish collection (it’s THAT good!). First, I would like to thank Jennifer from Superchic Lacquer for providing these polishes for my honest review so lets get to showing you this gorgeous Fall 2014 ‘Into the Woods’ collection!!
Superchic Lacquer ‘ If the Golden Slipper Fits’ – is described as “the purest gold metallic base adorned with strong blue iridescent shimmer and holographic effects”.
You can definitely see the holographic effects in the polish in direct sunlight, it’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL! This is definitely what I would consider a very ‘classy’ polish and it’s definitely up my alley, will be getting a lot of use outta this polish! It combo’s a femininity, sophistication and glamour all in one! This was opaque on 3 coats, was easy to apply and each coat dried within minutes of each other! I used Superchic Lacquer’s Top coat to seal the manicure (which I am in LOVE with and you NEED it in your life! Will be doing a separate post on that polish, it’s unlike any other top coat I have ever used!)
Superchic Lacquer ‘Fumbling Fairytales’ – is described as “a vibrant base with strong contrasting golden green chrome and iridescent, subtle holographic and green shimmer effects”.
It was hard to capture the pure essence of this polish, it’s simply gorgeous!! I wasn’t sure if it would suit my skin tone but I ended up loving it!! I think this is such a fun, girly shade perfect for a girl’s night out!! It was opaque on 3 coats, super easy to apply and dried rather quickly for being a 3 coater.
Superchic Lacquer ‘You Don’t Know Jacques About My Beans’ – is described as “a lush artichoke green with strong contrasting fiery iridescent, holographic and green shimmer effects“.
Do you see what I SEE?? This polish is GORGEOUS!!!! I was stunned when I swatched this polish – it’s so complex you will distract yourself the entire day just staring at your manicure!! I pride myself on finding unique polishes whether it be from main stream or indie brands – THIS my friends is VERY unique and a MUST HAVE from this collection! It was opaque on 4 coats however, each coat added to the complexity of the polish, that is extremely RARE to find! So snatch this baby up for it’s gone!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Let your hair down and take a Selfie’ – is described as “vibrant golden yellow base with strong fiery-copper iridescent, subtle holographic and brilliant red shimmer effects”.
This one wins for the BEST named polish ever!! It was hard to capture the copper effect in the polish but believe me it’s there in real life. This was the sheerest polish in the entire collection, the manicure you are viewing is 4 coats but like the previous polish, as you build the layers it added to the complexity of the polish. I think this would be perfect as a topper for other polishes and you can play with contrasting it onto of other colours.
Superchic Lacquer ‘Gold Delicious Curse’ – is described as “a succulent apple-cranberry base adorned with strong contrasting flashes of green to gold iridescence, chrome and holographic effects’.
This polish is seriously so gorgeous and perfect for Fall – it was opaque on 2 coats and the chrome effect coupled with the holographic is something that needs to be appreciated in person. I think this polish would look good on EVERY skin tone!! It’s the perfect transition polish into the Fall season and something about it is very alluring and addictive! I ended up wearing this one for a few days after I swatched the entire collection, it’s gorgeous! And like all the polishes in this collection, the drying time was super impressive, between 7 to 10 minutes!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Bedtime Nom Noms for Mr. Wolf’ – is described as “a rich dark chocolate base with hints of silver chrome & iridescence flash to a subtle taupeness and embellished with holographic and brilliant reds shimmer effects”.
This is another STUNNER from the collection – I first saw a swatch of this on my friend Holly’s Instagram account and mentioned to her it’s EXACTLY what I wanted OPI My Private Jet to be and I was right!!!! I personally prefer this polish of OPI MPJ…a little side story, years before I was into nail polish, I actually had the original OPI MPJ in my hands and decided NOT to buy it because I wasn’t into dark polishes at the time, I have regretted that moment ever since because now it’s impossible to find. I was always on a hunt for a polish to quench my desire and I am happy to say I have come upon that moment!! I truly ADORE this polish to pieces, it was opaque on 3 coats, dried super quickly and just LOOK at it!! It reminds me of Christmas lights doesn’t it??! I love this one! A must have!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Witches Agenda for Uberness’ – is descried as “black base with strong blue iridescent shimmer, holographic effects and hints of blue chime flash’.
OMG!! This polish give me LIFE!!!!! It’s super difficult to pick a favourite but this just might be my #1 from the collection – it’s soooo complex for a dark shade I am in LOVE!! It was opaque on 3 coats, easy to apply and dried within a decent time (3-4 minutes per coat). I wish I could buy this for everyone like Oprah and just give it away because it’s THAT GOOD!!! Just looking at it again makes me want to slap this on once more! This polish just screams confidence to me!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Little Vampy Riding Hood’ – is described as “a rich oxblood red base embellished with strong copper iridescence shimmer and holographic effects”.
This is definitely among my top favourites in this collection – it’s such a perfect Fall & Winter shade, a deep ox blood red with a scattered holographic is always a winner in my books! This was opaque on 2 coats, very easy to work with and dried like the rest, super quickly! I HIGHLY recommend this one if you love reds, this is a must have!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Nightshade Serum to Youth, Like Actually!’ – is described as “a lush eggplant purple base with contrasting green iridescent shimmer, vibrant green chrome flash and holographic effects”.
This was was the most difficult to capture in real life, it’s SUPER GORGEOUS!!! The green duochrome is a LOT more apparent in real life, with the added scattered holographic effect, it is seriously stunning! It’s really hard to list my top picks from this collection because they are each unique and equally beautiful! This was opaque on 2 coats, dried quickly and is a definite winner for being one of the most unique purple polishes I own to date!
Superchic Lacquer ‘Baker’s Hunger for a Bun in the Oven’ – is described as “a muted deep lush blue-gray with contrasting fiery-copper iridescent shimmer and holographic effects”.
Are you mesmerized by this polish? I know I am!! I have nothing like this in my collection – seriously this is by far my FAVOURITE Fall 2014 Collection released this year, including all the main stream brands! What makes this collection such a hit for me is the unique element of each polish, as you build the layers it creates more depth and complexity that is virtually non-existent in main stream brands.
