Long time, no see! I am extremely excited to break my long silence [For which I greatly apologize!] with some BEAUTIFUL polishes brought to you by Aurora Lacquers!
New to the scene, but striking great promise already, Aurora Lacquers has debuted their brand with texture, and sparkle, and the seasons TOP colours all rolled up into one HELLUVA cute polish.
So today, let me bring you three fantastic stand-alone colours, and a polish best used as a topper for that special look you crave.
This picture is true-to-life accurate. This is how these colours showed exactly as they were when I received them and all following pictures have varying lighting to show how the colours can change.
Left to right:
"The Dusty Fairy", a smoky silver grey sparkle
"Fae", a pale smoky lilac purple textured sparkle
"Shimmering Orchids", a colour-of-the-year orchid purple textured sparkle
And finally, "Bubble-Gum Wings", a sparkle top-coat-like polish with beautiful shimmer flakes and a variety of glitter including, unsurprisingly, butterflies
"The Dusty Fairy"
Looking back at these pictures, I was able to truly appreciate the beauty of this polish. Initially another of this collection had taken me by storm and I was so infatuated I couldn't take it off for 3 days. So, the other polishes probably didn't get the respect they so deserve. In fact, I've put THIS one on just now, because the sparkle pairs with the shimmer so perfectly it remains understated.
Fae is beautifully true to its name. This soft textured purple has prismatic glitters through and through, and radiates of a light only the Fae people of tales could hold. I adore this colour, though I can't say it's my kind of "winter" colour. This one I'm saving for Fall. :)
Ahhh now here we are. I know they say save the best for last, but I simply couldn't. This polish right here, is absolutely AMAZING. It's the Pantone colour of the year: Orchid, and my god is it a fanTASTIC take on the colour! Slighly textured in that wrinkled-leather look, more sparkle than a bucket of diamonds, and of course the colour alone is perfect.
What could be better? This photo was taken THREE DAYS after I put it on! Dishes were washed [No gloves!], trash was hauled, cat boxes were cleaned repeatedly, and plenty of typing was done! I can't say I've seen a textured polish last so long since my first one ever!
My only drawback to this polish was that the colour was SO perfect, I've since been obsessed with finding every possible "orchid" polish I can find. ;D
Unfortunately, this poor polish didn't get the love it deserves on my end. :( No matter how many times I did and re-did it, my poor nails were just a little too stained from other polishes to show the beautiful bubble-gum pink this polish is. Pinky to middle finger [in order] are one, two, and three coats each of the polish alone. Index is a white base [Hope, from Julep] with two coats of Bubble-gum Wings on top. And finally, [and my favourite] two coats of Bubble-gum Wings on top of two coats of a black base [Cleopatra, from Julep]. What you can't see [Dark glare!] is that the white base allows the soft pink shimmer to shine through. On the other hand, the black base gives this delicate polish an edgy look I quite loved. :)
However you wrap it, these polishes are just a few of the grand opening polishes you'll find from Aurora Lacquers, and I will personally vouch for every one you find! You will most certainly fall in love at first swatch, as I did. :)
