PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review

Hello again lovelies! It’s been a little while since I’ve reviewed a new collection from Night Owl Lacquer, but she’s back and she’s coming in full force! We have a new collection featuring five bright bases with contrasting shimmer, and a quartet of shredded flakie toppers. Let’s take a peek!

Brighten Up Collection- $9 each/$42 set
 

Cheerful – a neon sunshine yellow with a rose gold shimmer.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth on application and most will be just fine between 2-3 coats, depending on application style.

Delightful – a neon green with a rose gold shimmer.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is similar to Cheerful, and I probably could have stopped at two coats, but again it’ll depend on your preference.

Blissful – a bright purple with a green shimmer.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and creamy, and behaves just a bit more like a cream than Delightful and Cheerful. The shimmer is very strong in this one.

Playful –  a neon pink with an aqua shimmer.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is similar to Blissful like the previous ones, has lovely self leveling and smooth brush strokes.

Hopeful – a bright teal with a purple shimmer.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. This is the different one in the collection, as it has a more jelly like feel on application. If you have a prominent free edge like myself, you’ll see just a touch of your smile line too.

Lastly, I wanted to see how these pretties water marbled, because it’s the season! They all spread across the water perfectly, except for Hopeful, but when placed in the water carefully between the others and just jiggled a bit in the water, it was easily encouraged to spread. The base for this is also Night Owl’s ‘Ya Basic White’ (which is also a wonderful white cream).

Shredded Toppers Collection- $7 each/$34 set
*The gold and silver toppers may be limited to about 64 available bottles due to supply issues*

Shredded White –  a clear base with white shreds.

This one required a bit of fishing and careful placement, as the flakes felt on the light side. Personally, for a more scattered appearance, I’d suggest using a sponge to apply.

Shredded Black –  a clear base with black shreds.

I had a bit more ease with one picking up a decent amount of flakes on Shredded Black. You’ll need to spread them out for placement, which I had no issues with.

Shredded Gold –  a clear base with gold shreds.

I had excellent flakie payoff on the gold, and I didn’t really have to carefully place on this one. It gives a lovely reflective sparkle on your nails.

Shredded Silver –  a clear base with silver shreds.

This one applies similar to the gold, I had no issues getting the flakes on the brush and spreading across my nails.
