Ooh La Lacquer ~ Perfect Storm, Lady Scarlet and Blu Radley



Ooh La Lacquer ~ Perfect Storm, Lady Scarlet and Blu Radley
Holo swatches

After wearing Ooh La Lacquer’s Regal Knievel yesterday I felt in the mood to wear the remaining three sisters. I decided to swatch them – both to get them into the Helmer but also to check if some of them need to be passed on to better homes.

I started out with Perfect Storm, which is a light blue strong linear holo. It’s the sheerest of the bunch, I needed three coats before I got rid of the visible nail line. The drying time between the coats is average.

The sun was shining, which is just perfect when you want to show off your holos :D

Take a look at what 3 coats and no topcoat look like in the sunshine:


Isn’t that just pretty? The sun went behind a cloud, and I snapped another pic.


And here’s what it looked like in my lightbox.


Verdict:
I love the holo effect, but I must admit that it’s a tad too baby blue for my likings. This will probably find a nice and more appreciating home soon.


Next one is is Lady Scarlet. She is a pink leaning polish with mixed linear and scattered holo effect.

The formula is good, and two coats is what it takes to make it opaque. Drying time is average, like her sisters.

Here’s what two coats and no topcoat look like in the sun:


Here’s another picture. Look how the holo effect kind of mixes together.


Here’s a low light picture. The rainbows are still visible.


Verdict:
Lady Scarlet was the one that surprised me the most. When I saw the bottle in real life, I didn’t think I would like the polish on at all. But seriously, this really grew on me! Thumbs up – Lady Scarlet gets to stay for a while!


 Last one up is Blu Radley, a blue leaning purple linear holo.

Same good formula as the rest of them, and I used two coats for my swatches. Drying time is average, no surprise there.

Here’s what that beauty looks like in the sunshine:


I love this, I think it’s gorgeous!


And here’s a lightbox picture. The rainbows are still there and I still love the colour.


Verdict:
This is my favourite of the bunch.  I love the colour and the fact that it’s both pretty in and out of the sunshine. This one definitely gets to stay!

  3. The pink one and the purple one are my favourites :) I'm not into baby blues much (wow, that sounds as if I've just given a birth to a baby! :D) so this is my nr 3.
