I love when I get to introduce you all to new polishes that are available through the Facebook group, Crystal’s Charity Lacquers. This month’s charity of choice is the Heart & Stroke Foundation and I have the offerings from Anchor & Heart Lacquer. $3 from each bottle sold will be donated to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
Stronger Than You Think
Stronger Than You Think is a clear base packed with holographic pigment, turquoise holo glitter, micro glitter in several colours, shifting iridescent glitter, plus a subtle purple shimmer.
When I read the description and saw that it was a clear base, I was expecting that it would take some work to get opacity. Not the case at all. I only needed two coats to get the coverage you see in the swatches.
It does dry to a slight texture and will require a couple coats of topcoat to smooth it out. My preference for this polish is to wear it with the texture because it adds such interest to the polish. The formula is amazing and I can see thins being pulled out for a regular accent nail.
Braver Than You Believe
Braver Than You Believe is a steely aqua polish with purple shimmer, lavender holo glitter, and holo micro flakies.
I would describe this polish as a bright sky blue and the lavender flakes add such a dimension and interest. Anchor & Heart is definitely a brand that has caught my attention with these polish and I will be a customer in the very near future.
The formula of this polish is smooth and easily applied. I wore this polish for 5 days with only minor tip wear. Yeah, that is a huge win for me.
Both these polishes are available for pre-order now at the Anchor & Heart Lacquer website for $12USD
and will stay that way until February 28, 2017.
