I’m back again with Sparkle and Shine’s second box! This month Wildflower Lacquer and Nailed It! are hosting Ethereal Lacquer for the awesome theme of Haunted Forest! The makers are also hosting a giveaway in their Facebook group that I’ll link at the end of this post so let’s take a peek and what they’ve mixed up for us!

Wildflower Lacquer- Wicked Thicket: a teal base with purple to copper to green aurora shifting shimmer and red to gold aurora shifting shimmer, and scattered UCC flakes that shift from red to gold.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is very creamy/crelly like on application and built up for me at three coats. I was hesitant if I needed that third coat, but I went for it anyway so make sure that my swatches would show the shimmer as my camera likes to get finicky with aurora shimmers. No issues with the flakes, and no texture after topcoat.

Nailed It!- Dead of Night: a colorless to black thermal with red/gold UCC flakes, red to green crystal flakes, and a subtle copper to green shimmer.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is also very crelly like here, and positively loaded with shifty flakes. The thermal properties are very sensitive so I busted out the ice water for the sideways shot. You’ll see it in action better in my swatch video. The warm state has a lovely smokey creamy appearance and the cold state is a smokey black complimented by the warming effect of the shimmer and flakes. No texture after topcoat.

Ethereal Lacquer- Ashwood: a gossamer cashmere with hints of taupe, and a strong shifting shimmer.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. This was another one that I was hesitant on whether or not I would need that third coat. I went for it, just to make sure you guys could see it on my swatches so again I’d recommend taking a peek at my swatch video to really get a good idea of how creamy this is on application and strong self leveling properties.
