Ooh la lacquer ~ Summer Daze



Ooh la lacquer ~ Summer Daze
Lilac linear holographic

Here’s my last Ooh La Lacquer for now.

The formula is good but the polish is rather sheer. I used three coats to achieve the opacity and depth you see on the pictures. The drying time between the coats is pretty average.

Here’s three coats and no topcoat:


It looks pretty, doesn’t it?


Here’s a low light picture:


I can see that it’s a pretty polish, but seriously, it’s not me at all. It’s way too discrete, or inoffensive if you like.

So I made some dots on it. I used Smitten’s Ker-Bloom, which I showed you here. It helps a bit, take a look at my final mani:

It helped with the dots, but this is my least favourite Ooh La Lacquer polish. It might even end up in the infamous box of shame!!


Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Average
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: The colour is too soft for my likings and the sheerness puts me off a bit.
Buy again: No
