Hello lovely readers! I’m kicking off my blogging weekend with a gorgeous duo from Ethereal Lacquer and Baroness X! Both brands will also have wax offerings from their sister brands as well that I’ll give descriptions on after the polishes. Let’s paint some nails!
Baroness X Immortal Glow– a purple to blue to light blue tri-thermal with blue to purple shimmer, orange/gold/green shifting iridescent flakes and an indigo glow pigment. Inspired by spirits of a graveyard at twilight!
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is very crelly feeling and applies very dense on the nail. You’ll easily see all three colors of the thermal as this is insanely reactive to temperature. In my swatch video I busted out the ice water to show it off and it was just changing like crazy. The flakes flatter all three colors as give off a strong iridescent feel in small/medium flecks across the nail. This does dry down quite a bit matte so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to make everything pop. It does glow in the dark as a bright indigo as well.
Ethereal Lacquer Soleil Sinistre– a medium earthy mauve base with a glowing red to gold shifting shimmer full of iridescent color shifting flakes. Inspired by a sun washed graveyard.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels very crelly like on application and starts off a touch sheer though depending on your preference, you’ll be fine between 2-3 coats. The shimmer and flakes are everything here, giving off a very strong warm color roll between golds, coppers, greens, and reds. No issues with the flakes and no texture after topcoat.
The duo will be $24 plus shipping, and the preorder starts today September 12 and closes September 22. You can grab them through Baroness X’s shop linked below. Also, both sister brands (Fox Fire Wax and Bath Co. and Moonbow Wax) have wax offerings to go with this duo as well!
- Moonbow Wax created Sinistre- a dark navy tinted wax melt brushed with a red, gold, and green shimmer. It’s a break apart bar that will be $6 in the scent notes: blended blackberry, tonka and smooth vanilla.
- Fox Fire Wax created Pirate’s Tea at Sea- a dark grey clamshell with copper metallic shimmer in 2.8 ounce clamshell for $4.50. Fragrance notes: oceanic and ozone based musk blended with orange pekoe, black tea, and hints of clove, vanilla and amber.
