This week, the blog is largely about one brand, one small, new brand, which I have fallen head over heels in love with. I was lucky enough to review 3 colours several weeks back, and one of the first things I did after that was go and buy almost every other polish in the store. That brand is Lilypad Lacquer.
So why have I fallen so hard? It's a quality product, simple as. Effortless application. Intense pigmentation. Smooth as a baby's bottom. Holo-tastic. Duochrome-delicious. I was smitten from literally the first brushstroke. Once you've tried a lot of polishes, sometimes you just KNOW.
So, every day this week, in honour of my newest polish obsession, I'll have 2 Lilypads to show you, and don't forget you can also see my original posts on Bubble Yummo and True Blood, and Ruby Slippers.
The first half of today's duo is I Love Lilac. This was a polish I hummed and hawed about buying, as it looked a little bland in the photos. Eventually I decided ONE MORE POLISH wasn't going to make much difference, and into my basket it went.
And as so often happens, turns out it's one of my favourites :) I love its soft, calm tones, its subtle holographic twinkle, its super glossiness. I love I Love Lilac.
This sparkles like fairy dust and just .... aw I want to squish it and cuddle it :) This is beautiful, really really beautiful.
Popping Purple is one of the MANY purples Lilypad make (another of the reasons I love them lol). This is bright, and funkier than a funky chicken at the funky chicken Olympics.
I love the pop of this colour. It's a little bit blue, whilst still retaining its purple credentials. Very bright, this is just a showstopper.
The holo is more scattered on this one (and I do like that all the polishes have differing degrees of holo-oh-oh-ness), but no less beautiful for that. Maybe we'd have been blinded if she were any prettier.
