Happy Monday! Another weekend flew by but I am so happy to report that after much aggravation, our new tree has arrived and is up, decorated and beautiful! Bowser is also not as into climbing it as he was last year so that is a total win in my books!
Today I have a review of an entire collection from an indie brand that is quickly moving up the ranks as one of my faves! SuperChic Lacquer is releasing their winter collection, called Frozen and Flurrious, today and I wanted to show you the seven polishes described as “duo chrome flash shimmers” and “icy holos”.
First up is Liquid Nitro Queen which is described by the creator as “a cool wintry lavender base with a strong contrasting flash of green shimmer-chrome, packed full of icy multi-faceted holographic effects”.
The formula on this was very smooth and easy to apply. A little sheer so I used three coats but this polish layers very nicely. It seems to pull more blue than lavender on my skin tone but I am IN LOVE with it… so gorgeous and the holo looks like sparks of lights from within!
Next up is Chillin’ With My Sister which is described as “a stark lush neon pink base with contrasting blue shimmer-chrome flash, loaded with icy multi-faceted holographic effects.”
The formula on this one was again, a little sheer but very easy to build. I used three coats and had no issues with application. This one was an instant stand-out fave for me and I am in love with the brightness of the pink and the subtle blue flash!
This is Cool Hands Warm Hugs and is described by SuperChic Lacquer as “a lush blue-turquoise base with strong fiery violet shimmer-chrome and icy multi-faceted holographic effects.”
The formula on this was more sheer than the others and I wasn’t able to get rid of the visible nail line (VNL) in three coats but it definitely is more apparent in the pictures than it was in real life. I absolutely loved the flash in this one… that pink is out of this world bright and even in non-natural light, I was able to see it and it made the polish seem alive!
Next up is Ice Rageous which is described as “vibrant retro ‘Santa Red’ base with subtle copper shimmer, and loaded with icy multi-faceted scattered holographic effects”
The formula on this polish was definitely the most opaque of the collection and I only ended up needing two coats to achieve full opacity. However, I also found it to be my least favourite as it seemed to have less of the holo effects and duo chrome flash that the others had. Still, a gorgeous Christmas red.
My favourite named polish of the collection is Royal Pain In The Ice which is described as “a deep lush royal blue base with a vibrant contrasting green shimmer-chrome flash and strong multi-faceted holographic effects.”
Again, a slightly sheer formula but the VNL was more obvious in the pictures. I used three coats and they were very smooth and easy to build. The duo chrome flash is less noticeable because of the similarity in colour but the holo shimmer is simply STUNNING!
Another amazingly named polish is Mmm, Chocolate Snocaps which is described as “a semi sweet dark chocolate base with a flash of cool blue shimmer-chrome and chocked full of icy multi-faceted holographic effects.”
I seriously get hungry looking at this polish! The formula was very nice and opaque in three coats. That blue flash against the brown background is so bright and vibrant and the contrast in the two colours is amazing. This is one sparkly gem of a polish (even if you aren’t a brown wearing like me).
The last polish in the collection is Stoked & Cloaked For The Bifrost (can someone explain this name to me?) which is described as “a lush vibrant raspberry-purple base with contrasting cool blue chrome, copper shimmer and packed with multi-faceted holographic effects.”
I expected this one to be sheer like Royal Pain In The Ice but was pleasantly surprised that, while needing the three coats, I was not able to see my VNL at all. This is another stunner of a polish and the holo sparkle is amazing! I ended up leaving this baby on and my husband is so sick of me sticking my fingers in his face! He now knows the definition of holo shimmer!
Overall, an amazing collection and I would recommend heading over to SuperChic Lacquer today for her launch of this collection and picking up your faves. My top picks are Chillin’ With My Sister, Stoked & Cloaked For The Bifrost and Liquid Nitro Queen.
The Frozen & Flurrious collection will be released today, December 8th, at 4:00pm PST (7:00pm EST) on the SuperChic Lacquer Etsy website. Polishes are $12 per bottle.
