Hi everyone! Christmas is just around the corner and have you decked your house with Christmas decors, bought your Christmas presents and making a food and drink list for the party? Many who knows me knows that Christmas is one of my favourite holiday! There is a lot to be rejoice and happy about even if you are not a Christian; the food, drinks, presents and most importantly spending quality time with the family!
Today I am very excited to be back with a blog post on a Christmas carol inspired theme – O Holy Night by Lilypad Lacquer exclusively available at Beauty So Fly. It contains two cool shades for those who prefer a winter feel and two warmer shades for those who need to feel the Christmas warm.
Angels Sing is a sweet cornflower blue holo with gold micro flakies. The consistency is slightly thicker than the rest of the collection and there was also a slight unevenness but it will even out once you applied the topcoat. I must add that I had a mini bottle for sample swatch so that could be the reason for the less than perfect end result. Having said that it applied easily. I used 3 coats for the photos.
Let me start by mentioning the biggest disclaimer on the next shade, Glorious Day, it is total pain in the ass to capture the colour correctly on any camera and every photos that I took of this turned out differently. But it is a gorgeous soft greyish lilac holo accented beautifully with copper fakies. The consistency is perfect and applied smoothly. My photos just do not justify the gorgeousness of this colour and I’m actually surprise this works against my skin tone, in real life that is. I used 3 coats for the photos.
Kingdom Reign is what I called a perfect Christmas tree green shade. It is a very flattering emerald green holo swimming with green shimmers and micro flakies. I couldn’t wish for a better consistency and it is so saturated that it applied smoothly in 2 coats.
I saved the best for last and can I just start off by saying I gasped when I saw the bottle. Royal Birth is a gorgeous vampy oxblood red accented with scattered rainbow holo and flakies. The jelly consistency is top notch and applied smoothly! And oh this totally reminds me of Christmas fruitcake! I just cannot stop staring at my nails when I had it on as it is so sparkly! I used 3 coats for the photos.
This collection is very well executed with choices of cooler and warmer shades to choose from. If the wallet allows I’d say get the whole collection but if you have to choose Royal Birth is the obvious choice. This is such a breath taking shade not to be missed and totally an apt shade for the festive season. And hey oxblood shade is all the rave this year isn’t it?
This collection will be launching exclusively at Beauty So Fly on 14 December 2015 at 9:30PM SGT retailing at SGD$18 per bottle or $65 as a set. Set your alarm!
