Alchemy Lacquers: Chocolate Bar Collection 

Standard

A cat hair just flew into my wet fingernail so now this day has officially been cancelled and deleted. Ugh.  Whyyyyyy, Universe, why?  Apparently, someone out there thinks I have nothing more to do than paint nails for nigh on eternity.  Except who’s watching the TV then?  Eating the Cheetos?  Dangling the robe strings in front of the cat for like two hours straight?

In other words, I’m var var busy.  The fact this blog is getting written is a damn near miracle.  Worth half a horn toot, at least.

In an attempt to go to bed before 3am, let’s do a speed blog!  I have a most gorgeous collection of polishes from Alchemy Lacquers to share with you today.  Check out what Rebecca made:

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

Look at all those pretty sausages! Every single one of them: beauties.  I don’t know what you got planned later, but tossing a bunch of polish in your shopping cart sounds about right.  You’re about to spend some money, y’all, just so you know.

So this is the Chocolate Bar Collection, a set of 6 little dreamboats full of sparkle and shimmer and general deliciousness. GUYS, you want these.  I’m serious.  I can’t think of one acceptable reason why not.  Unless you don’t like pretty things.  Or perhaps you are a robot.  But other than that, NOTHING.

Get your wallets handy, cuz here’s your quick rundown of colors: 

STRAWBERRY ECLAIR 

DESCRIPTION:  A pink flake that contains pink metallic and holographic glitter, purple/pink/orange shifting flakies and a touch of holographic sparkle

OPACITY:  Three ultra smooth coats

Rebecca said this one is intentionally made sheer and you might consider putting it over a dark base; HOWEVER, that’s a whooooole nother level of effort, so here’s what it looks like on naked nails instead.  PERFECTION, basically.

SALTED CARAMEL 

DESCRIPTION:  A gold/brown to green shifting holographic with specks of coral-orange/gold/green/blue multichrome flakies

OPACITY:  Two lovely coats

For real, my jaw is just laying on the floor like NO BIG DEAL.  

BLACK FOREST TRUFFLE 

DESCRIPTION:  A mauve creme with turquoise/blue shifting shimmer and holographic finish

OPACITY:  Two luscious coats

Purple lovers, you seeing this?!  GAH!  It’s getting suuuuuper swoon-y in here!  Hope ya’ll got your fainting couches handy, like one of those fancy Victorian ones, cuz who’s about to get unattractive on a futon?  NOT THIS LADY.

CHERRY CORDIAL 

DESCRIPTION:  A dark red jelly with red/orange/gold/green shifting shimmer

OPACITY:  Two dreamy coats

Ahhh, now. We’re in love with this one aren’t we? She’s the red of your dreams:  sexy and sassy, flirty but also kinda bossy. She’s who you wish you were back in 5th grade when you tried out for cheerleading but refused to show school spirit, cuz duh, EMBARRASSING. For real, it was all kinds of uncomfortable crickets in there. Those judges … being so judgy. It’s as if they knew there was a spelling bee nearby missing a 10-year-old.

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP

DESCRIPTION:  A milk coffee creme with turquoise/pink/purple shifting shimmer and holographic finish

OPACITY:  Three dainty coats

Normally, I don’t love me some nudes, but this one has just enough darkness in it to look flattering against my see-thru skin.  And that contrasting shimmer?  Ugh.  So pretty.  Even the Queen of England’s got a dire case of the Grabby Fingers.  GIMME.

AMARETTO 

DESCRIPTION:  A cool dark grey creme with magenta/red/orange/gold/lime green shimmer

OPACITY:  Two gorgoeus coats 

And now we end this thing on a billion exclamation points.  This one is truly gorgeous and a legit driving hazard.  Cuz while the shimmer is a little more subdued in regular lighting, under the sun there’s an insane amount of sparkle.  Plus potholes.  Lots and lots of potholes.

THE ROUND UP 

ALL OF IT.  IMMEDIATELY.

The Chocolate Bar collection is available now, so guess what you’re doing in about 2.5 seconds?  Seriously, I’m not saying it’s a Polish Emergency, but it’s probably a Polish Emergency.  Go, go, go!  Cuz who’s missing out on all his chocolately goodness.  CERTAINLY NOT YOU.  Some deets:

Mint Chocolate Chip and Strawberry Eclair – $9.00 each

Salted Caramel and Black Forest Truffle – $10.00 each

Cherry Cordial and Amaretto – $11.00 each

Comes with a side of Leonardo.  Or else I just dreamed that.  I dunno.

Shop closes at midnight EST 10/11 (or technically 10/12) so be sure to get your orders in TODAY. As in, RIGHT NOW. As in, NO TIME FOR LOUNGING.  The shop will only be down briefly and the polishes will be back, but that is beside the point.

Headed to do a couple more swatches before bed which will most likely end up a 17 hour polish party. And then naps at the desk for me tomorrow! HR loves that, I swear.

Later, loves!

Alchemy Lacquers: Star Shards Collection 

Standard

Hey, it’s not midnight! Someone’s feeling a bit overachieve-y at the moment. Better write a blog real quick before terrible things happen (e.g., napping in the car in clear view of co-workers, accidental Full House marathon rabbit hole-type situation, someone handing me a bag of Cheetos and I go unconscious for a little bit.)  Cuz y’all know I’m always about 2.5 seconds away from something distracting, or else we wouldn’t be in the middle of a BLOGGING EXTRAVAGANZA! now would we?

I swear, I hope SUPERHUMAN happens soon, otherwise you’re not going anywhere for the next 18 years. Sorry, if I gotta be in here carpal tunneling, the least you can be is reading the dang thing. 

Rebecca with Alchemy Lacquers sent me her gorgeous new Star Shards collection to share with you today. First of all, they are mostly jellies which means I could end the blog right here and you’re tossing all five in the cart anyway. But secondly …

Gah!  I’m trying so hard to be normal today, but OMG now there’s flakies, soooo … Ladylike composure = out the dadgum window. And basically I may never be normal again.

Here’s a quick rundown of colors, then I’ll meet you at the bottom!

BETELGEUSE 

DESCRIPTION:  A dark navy jelly with blue/purple chrome flakies, green/orange clear flakies, silver holographic glitter and red/green shifting glitter

CAPELLA

DESCRIPTION:  An orange red jelly with orange/green shifting clear flakies and red, orange and gold holographic glitter 

VEGA

DESCRIPTION:  A turquoise crelly with pink/green shifting clear flakies and a touch of holo

ALTAIR

DESCRIPTION:  A magenta jelly with silver holographic glitter and shifting clear flakies

RIGEL

DESCRIPTION:  An ultramarine blue jelly with red/orange/yellow/green shifting clear flakies

THE ROUND UP 


Anyone still upright?  Nope, me neither. These polishes got me 27 levels of swoon-y.

Now, FOCUS! I can be a proper blogger from time to time. So here ya go:

Formula was on point. Jellies can be tricky, but there’s absolutely no hassle here. Sheer on the first coat but they build up so good, and by the third coat, I swear you’re surrounded by your own drool buckets. Or if not, well CLEARLY you are wrong.

Vega, the lone crelly in the bunch, is just as good. Two coats; three if you’re crazy. Obviously I did three. Oh, and my favorite?  The delicious, juicy orange one! I swear it’s four fingers of Jolly Rancher goodness, except slightly more poison-y.

This collection is available now so you’re all set for shopping!  Price for each is $11, which considering how much we’d honestly pay for a bottle of magic with flakies in it, that’s a pretty good steal.

A word of advice though: don’t wait too long! Last I checked, quantities were getting low and I don’t have any information on future restocks. Cuz I’m a DADGUM PROFESSIONAL, that’s why.
