Hello lovely readers! It’s the season of love and I’m a big time Valentines Day nerd. My husband and I tend to get very sappy and go all out for each other (I know, I know we’re very corny) but I love it regardless! Blush Lacquers is releasing a special duo inspired by Emily Bronte’s novel, Wuthering Heights. Both polishes are created for Cathy and Heathcliff’s relationship, specifically two quotes (shortened for bottle labels). Victoria, the brand owner has a lovely sense of romantic notions and I really felt the inspiration with both colors. Let’s get to the swatches!
“I fought through a bitter life since I last heard your voice, and you must forgive me, for I struggled only for you.”
I Struggled Only For You: A dark, brooding charcoal grey nearing black nail polish with fiery flecks of red to orange to gold shifting multi-chrome flakes, holographic pigment and holographic flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and dense on application and really packs a punch on the sparkle. I had no issues getting loads of flakes across the nail and no texture after topcoat.
“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
Whatever Our Souls Are Made Of: An ethereal sandy beige base with a glowing green to a ghostly whitish-blue to red-violet shifting shimmer, holographic pigment and holographic flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is light and delicate and definitely built up for me. I’d suggest between 2-3 coats for opacity. The shimmer is very strong in person, you’ll easily see a lovely pearly green shade that easily shifts to violet at angles. The holo effect is scattered and gives a delicate sparkle. I’d suggest a glossy topcoat to really make that shimmer pop.
The release will have a preorder special! The preorder launch will be Friday, January 24th at 12:01am EST through Tuesday January 28th at 11:59pm EST. During this time, you can grab the duo for a dollar off each polish ($10, $9 individually) or $18 for the duo. If ordering during this window, your polishes will ship out before the regular release orders.
If you order after the special preorder (January 29th), both polishes will be $11 and $10 respectively, or $21.
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
