Hold on to your seats because today I have a good one!! I have a new-to-me indie (and a fairly new overall indie) featured today – Ladybug Lacquer. Kimberly, the maker, has been working on this collection for a long time and it is really evident that she put a ton of time into making sure the formula of these cremes worked. And boy, did they ever! The collection will feature six gorgeous cremes and a fun glitter topper. I have three of the cremes and the glitter topper to show you today.
Chapped Lips is described as a ‘sweet, muted pink’ and was inspired by the maker’s favourite chapstick. Nailed it!! This is exactly the colour I would think of when thinking of a lip balm.
I used two very thin coats for coverage. If I had been a touch heavier handed, I might have been able to pull off one coat. The formula of this was amazing! Like, think high-end polish amazing! The consistency is not too thick, but not so thin it floods your cuticles. I have Marc Jacobs and Deborah Lippmann and Mac polishes that don’t touch the formula of this.
I love how the polish is so shiny that the camera is reflected in the polish!
That’s it!! Game over!! I’m done! Mulled Wine is officially my favourite berry creme of all time. Described as a ‘deep, glossy cranberry’ this polish is the perfect colour of fall. Fall polish collections are always my favourites and a polish like this is exactly why. There’s just something classy about a good creme. Well, look no further.
I needed ONE coat to get the coverage you see here. I usually throw on a second coat just for fun in case of patches the camera picks up and I knew it would be unnecessary with this one. Like Chapped Lips, amazing formula. You’d swear you were using designer polish.
This is probably my favourite photo ever! No top coat, one coat of polish, and look at the camera reflected in the nail! Ah-maz-ing!
Wicked Witch’s Candied Apple
Wicked Witch’s Candied Apple is described as a ‘delicious red’. I think I would more describe it as a brown-leaning red or a brick red but it’s still perfect no matter how you describe it! This is the quintessential fall polish and it’s completely unique to my collection. I have nothing close.
Like her sisters, Wicked Witch’s Candied Apple has an amazing formula. I used two thin coats, though I think I could have gotten away with just one.
Another super shiny polish! I didn’t use a top coat and still managed to get this kind of shine!
Jump is the glitter topper that is paired with this collection. It’s a mix of golden bronzed glitters mixed with iridescent shimmer. It’s supposed to look like falling leaves and Kimberly nailed that too. It looks exactly like what jumping in a pile of leaves would feel like.
This is one coat of Jump over Wicked Witch’s Candied Apple. The glitter payoff for one coat is fantastic.
