Happy Hump Day!! And welcome back to more Lilypad Lacquer loveliness. Today I have very different polishes for you - ultimate holo bendiness from one, and ladylike scatter from the other.
Obviously we're starting with Velveteen. Holo bendier than a Russian gymnast. Colour to die for. A lot of photos. Suck it up. And your drool :)
Velveteen is just EVERYTHING you ever want a holo to be. Fabulous colour, amazing intensity and oh that bend! The rainbow blessed this one with deep, dark yet groovy decadence.
This is an awesome browned off purple, damson-ish, that absolutely does look like brushed velvet. It is soooo smooth and shiny AND BENDY and drooly and GAH I love it so much!! I have many favourite Lilypads, and some days, this is my Number 1.
Honestly, I couldn't be more in love with this one if I tried.
Periwinkle Twinkle suffers in comparison, so don't compare it. They are very different polishes, especially in holo density and gymnastics :)
Whilst this does have a linear bend to it, the effect is less disco-tastic than with Velveteen. There's a real posh, refined aspect to this polish, as if she were born into the aristocracy :)
The colour is lovely too - subtle, but with depth. Not too pale, this has some oomph and teeth to it, as well as a little bit of iciness to take the edge off the bright sky blue.
An under-rated beauty.
Enjoy, and I will be back tomorrow with perhaps the most striking Lilypad of all .... AND another purple :) xx
