Happy Birthday Harry Potter! The 2019 Cast a Spell box is an annual box hosted by Night Owl Lacquer, and is inspired by the various spells used in the movies and books! This is such a fun box and features so many pretties! Pre-order is right around the corner, so let’s see the swatches!
Night Owl Lacquer
Wingardium Leviosa– a violet tinted base loaded with aqua/green/purple shifting shimmer, aqua/green/purple sparks and copper/red/gold/green crystal chameleon flakes. Night Owl is also contributing an adorable broom stick pen and a random Harry Potter Sticker.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is medium/light and has the overall look of a shimmery foil in the final look. For opacity you can definitely get away with two coats, but I went to three just to really plump it out in the final look. No texture after topcoat.
Piertotum Locomotor– a slate blue-grey packed with blue to bronze shimmer highlighted by subtle holo and shifting UCC flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This one feels medium on application and builds up crazy fast to opacity by the second coats. Lots of sparkles and reflective pieces to see here, and no texture after topcoat.
Lollipop Posse Lacquer
Riddikulus- an ultramarine blue crelly filled with pink shifting shimmer, multiple color ways of shifting iridescent flakes, mauve-green shifting ultra chameleon chrome flakes, and silver holographic microflakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This applies like a very opaque jelly and gave me full coverage at two coats. Lots of sparkles to see here, and a very strong golden green shift on tilt. The flakes behaved easily for me and no texture after topcoat.
Nvr Enuff Polish
Bombarda Maxima– a hypnotizing pale blue beauty full of pink/blue/gold/green/violet shimmer, holographic flakes, galaxy glitters and linear holo.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula applies very rich and opaque on the nail. This one has a metallic feel and sparkles like crazy from the holo. No texture after topcoat.
Bee’s Knees Lacquer
Imperio– an eerie filed green with a sneaky blue to green shimmer that has a surprising hint of pink.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is rich and creamy on application and gives a lovely plump effect. You’ll mostly see the shimmer as a strong aqua green with the purple and pink popping out at extreme angles in the shade.
One sheet of Harry Potter themed water decals included in the box with the option to purchase additional sheets at $5 each.
I went a little crazy with these and made myself Gryffindor nails making each decal into a stamp of sorts with polish applied underneath each image. I have a full tutorial in the swatch video.
The box will release on preorder July 31st at 1pm MDT through August 7th at midnight MDT. There will be 40 ready to ship boxes and the rest will ship August 19th. The box will be $49 plus shipping.
