Echoes Polish is a Canadian indie brand that we have just discovered here at My Lacquer Cabinet. And, boy, are we ever glad we did! The Chromoatose Collection is comprised of four gorgeous metallic thermal polishes. I got Out To Lunch and Drowsy Daydream. Terra received Idle Mind and Out Cold and they will be reviewed tomorrow.
To start, I have Out To Lunch. It’s a mauve with golden shimmer when it’s cold and a tan with golden shimmer when it’s warm. So, first of all – GOLDEN SHIMMER. It’s my polish kryptonite. I really like both versions of this polish but if I was forced to choose, I’d pick the gold. The formula was amazing. Like, seriously amazing. Smooth, good coverage…exactly what a polish should be. I actually found that the formula reminded me of Octopus Party Nail Lacquer (which I also am a fan of). I feel like I could wear this polish for days without worries of chipping because the coats go on so smoothly.
Drowsy Dream is like everything I could ever want in a polish all mixed together. And I am so in love. As I mentioned above, I love golden shimmer. This polish has it in spades. The macro shot really shows the shimmer. Those pictures aren’t very colour accurate, but they do capture the details perfectly. Drowsy Daydream is an orangey coral when it is cold and a medium pink when it is warm. Yeah. Dead. My two favourite colours to wear for the summer are coral or pink so having them both in one polish is everything. Again, like Out To Lunch, the formula is perfection.
Overall impression – I am super stoked about this brand. Enough that I went back and bought a handful of others that were on the site. The packaging is great (think same bottle as KBShimmer), the brush is short and easy to use, the shipping time was quick, and it’s Canadian. For our fellow Canadian readers, this is a big deal. The Canadian dollar has been killing us polish addicts and it’s really nice that our dollar can be used as a dollar for this brand. Plus, supporting Canadian small businesses is important. For our non-Canadian readers, you need to jump on this. Seriously. With the dollar being what it is, it’s like getting almost free polish 😉 If I weren’t Canadian, I’d be all over the $10CAD/bottle price tag. Even with shipping, it’s a steal for an indie thermal polish.
