PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review
Hello again lovely readers! I have another epic box from the makers of Nailed It! and Wildflower Lacquer. This month’s Sparkle and Shine box is themed Autumn Splendor and our guest maker is the awesome Great Lakes Lacquer. This is literally leaves and fall vibes neatly packaged into glass bottles. So good. Let’s take a peek at what they’ve mixed up for us!
Nailed It!: Ash and Embers– a blackened linear holo packed with copper/gold UCC flakes and gold/green crystal flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like but builds up very quickly. The flakes and sparkle payoff is intense, and those flakes just light up. On all three in this box, I’d suggest a glossy topcoat to maximize the flakie appearance.
Wildflower Lacquer: Fallelujah!– a deep plum linear holo base with subtle red to gold to green shifting shimmer, and scattered red to gold shifting UCC flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy like and dense on application. The shimmer gives a gorgeous inner glow and the flakes offer a warmed color roll. They’re on the smaller side so it gives a soft speckled effect. Purple lovers: don’t miss out on this one.
Great Lakes Lacquer: Autumn on the Keweenaw– a fiery red filled with two different colorways of iridescent shifting flake, showcasing gold, bronze, orange, and sneaks of green. A soft scattered holographic finishes it off.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula applies very similar to the Nailed It! and builds up very fast. My swatches are leaning just the tiniest bit warm, but overall this is a very intense red that is vibrant and warm toned. The flakes give such a glowing effect with a soft sparkle in the background.
The box goes up for pre-order September 18th at 7pm CST through September 25th at 11:59pm CST. The box of three full sized polishes is $30 plus shipping. Orders will ship 2-3 weeks after the pre-order closes. The makers really knocked this one out (again). If you’re new to this box, I can’t recommend it enough, it’s easily become one of my favorite recurring releases. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these in action!
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
