Hello readers! Today I have a new to me brand, as well as new on the scene for the polish community to share with you guys! Soothing Soul Lacquer has launched her first polishes in her shop and they are available for purchase. I have two polishes that are currently available!

Emerald Forest

Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has an almost jelly like feel, but built up to opacity around the second coat however I went for three coats to really give that plump effect that I’m reaching for when polishing. This one has a black base that has loads of what I’m going to call microflake that mostly appears as a deep emerald green but on extreme angles shifts over to a vampy purple. The brush on the bottle fans out nicely and is one of those that give you lovely coverage if you’d got wide nails like yours truly. Now, I was sent mini bottles but I imagine the full size brushes will be similar since both bottles appear to be very similar. The flakes give a sparkle effect and I had no texture after topcoat.

Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has a crelly feel to it that built up quickly. I’d say 2-3 coats for opacity on this. The type of yellow here is one that is my favorite type of shade, it’s what I would consider a true sunshine yellow that’s nice and bright. There is also a scattered holo effect across this as well. Both Emerald Forest and Willow dry down a touch on the satin side so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat for both.

There’s lots more to see over in her shop, with a good variety of colors. Overall I’d recommend checking her out. I look forward to seeing where this brand goes, it’s always awesome to see fresh makers on the scene. When you order you’ll also get a raffle ticket that is good for a drawing in the fan group for a free mini polish. Most polishes hover around the $9 region for full size bottles with prices capping at $10.50. Both Emerald Forest and Willow are both $9. I’ll link you guys below to the Facebook fan group as well to get insider peeks at what Helene is working on as well as other blogger’s swatches.

Thank you so much for reading! ❤
