Ooh La Lacquer ~ Regal Knievel



Ooh La Lacquer ~ Regal Knievel
Purple strong linear holo

I have been impressed with all of the few Ooh La Lacquers I’ve seen swatches of so far. Regal Knievel is a fantastic purple, and I’ve been looking forward to trying it on!

Application was easy, no problems with dragging or bald spots whatsoever. And no special aqua basecoat is required; any base coat will work with this baby. It takes two coats to achieve full opacity, and the drying time between the coats is average.

I had sunshine, yay! So I can really show you all the gorgeous rainbows!

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


I feel tempted to say “Ooh la la!” :D


The colour is also cool in lower light. It doesn’t turn dusty, and the rainbows still shine!


My sweet boyfriend suggested a beehive stamp for it, so that’s what I went for. I found it on Moyou London’s Pro Collection-02. I used that dark blue shimmer from Bourjois called “Bleu Moonlight” as my stamping polish. That just worked! Here’s a sunshine picture before I applied topcoat:


And another one! I love the dark blue over this. Black would have been too much darkness, but this works.


Here’s a pic taken in my lightbox.


I am so pleased, both with the pretty polish and with the mani as a whole. I really like holos that also work in the shade, and all nail stamps that are open like this one are just me. So yes, this mani works on all levels.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Average
Finish: Strong holo
Overall impression: Great colour, fantastic holo!
