Lilypad Lacquer Black Pearl

Hello, all! I recently received my first Lilypad Lacquer, a brand that has been building in popularity for some time now. I was very happy to discover that all the attention is warranted! All three of the polishes I received from them is excellent.

The first one I’ll be reviewing is Black Pearl, a grey-pink duochrome with fabulous amounts of holographic effect. It’s a more holographic version of what I expected bL Knackered to be, with an additional metallic dimension. It’s not truly a metallic polish though-I rarely purchase those, as my nails are generally short, and I feel metallic finish is one of those that emphasizes my nubbiness. (For those interested, finishes like holographic, glass fleck, shimmer, etc., are excellent for short nails. Cremes, metallics-anything flat-will make them look even shorter, in my experience.)

On to the photos!

This is three coats, with no base coat and one coat of Poshe topcoat.

In short, this is an amazing polish and I kind of need even more of these Lilypads. Seriously. I already have a list of ones I need from them. It’s pretty bad.

Welp, see you guys next time!
