***REVEAL*** Envy Lacquer Illuminacion and Careta : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! Ready for another REVEAL?! Today's reveal comes to us courtesy of the Melody of Envy Lacquer! She chose a gorgeous duo as her fave picks of 2015 which just happened to be my first from her brand. Take a look at what I thought of my first polishes from her!

Illuminacion is described as "a white crelly polish with a holo and rainbow sparkle". Lovely formula and application--this polish went on really smoothly and easily. The swatches below show 4 thin coats by itself on the index and pinkie fingers and 2 thin coats over 2 coats of Sally Hansen's OMGhost on the middle and ring fingers, all topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. So hard to capture on camera, the iridescent sparkle is just gorgeous!

Careta is described as "a black polish filled with holo and rainbow sparkle". No complaints at all with the formula or application. The swatches below show 2 generous coats, topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. Beautiful, sparkly black!

With flash!

So there you have it, my darlings! Both of these beauties are still shown as available for purchase on Envy Lacquer's website HERE, although the shop is currently closed. Don't forget to follow Melody through the social media outlets below to find out when the shop will open :

  1. Both are really pretty! I'm drawn to careta more though...

  2. I like both the sparkle glitter of the white and black polishes which will be great for many nail art styles! :)



  3. Both of these are gorgeous! I would get them in a heartbeat!
