I have been obsessed with nail varnish for such a long time and I still get a little flurry of excitement when I discover a new brand or formula. But when I first stumbled across Floss Gloss I knew it was going to be a company to watch. Their Instagram account is bright, bold, and a little bit filthy – what more do you need?
At the Birchbox event I went to a few weeks ago I met a blogger called Emily and fangirled a bit when I found out that she was one of the creators of The Lacquer Lab. I am always on the look out for independent, UK based nail polish brands and this one had been on my radar for a while. I was lucky enough to be sent their new limited edition festive trio to review and I will apologise now for the photo heavy post: these polishes deserve a lot of pictures!
Introducing: The Lacquer Lab Festive Trio nail polishes
So here is the trio, L-R: Fred & Ginger, I Want A Pony, and Snow Globe. Don’t you just feel Christmassy looking at them?
A england Dragon Review
Another polish from the beautiful a-england ‘The Legend’ collection. This one is a glorious emerald green that, depending on the light, has a blue or gold tint and a true holographic shimmer running through it. This is one of those polishes that just has you staring at your nails all day.
Just like the other polishes in this collection, this could have been a one-coater but I am a creature of habit and did two coats anyway. It was then topped with Seche Vite, although it’s super shiny and sparkley without.
‘The Legend’ collection is sadly no longer available, but you can get Adina’s stunning nail polishes HERE.
Lac Attack The Horcrux Of It
When I heard about the Lac Attack ‘Magical Musings’ collection and pored over the pre-launch swatches online, this was the polish I was most excited about. I was absolutely gutted when my first bottle was faulty but I got in contact with Ana and she was brilliant. Immediately apologetic and really helpful. She replaced the bottle and even sent me another bottle from the collection as an apology. Perfect and professional customer service makes me so happy!
Anyway! Back to this stunning polish. Lac Attach The Horcrux Of It is a sheer black base with a shed load of glitter: small green, small copper and large green hex. This is one coat over Rimmel’s ‘Black Cab’. Because there’s so much glitter packed in, I did do two coats of Seche Vite over the top to smooth it all out.
You can see my reviews of the other Lac Attack ‘Magical Musings’ polishes here: Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, Dementia’s Kiss, Beauxbaton Academy, and Hogwarts.
This collection sold out in 20 minutes (Harry Potter and nail polish fans are a powerful combination!) so is sadly not available anymore. But you can find Lac Attack’s other beautiful polishes HERE.
Lac Attack Hogwarts Review
Here is another swatch from the incredible Lac Attack’s ‘Magical Musings’ collection. All of these polishes are so beautiful and this one is no exception.
It’s a clear base with an absolute butt load of multi-coloured, multi-sized glitter. This only needed two coats for this level of coverage and it didn’t need any glitter placement which is rare. I love how the glitter looks in the above picture, layered glitter is so satisfying for me, I don’t know why!
I think this may have replaced OPI’s ‘Rainbow Connection’ as my go-to glitterbomb. BIG claim!
This collection is sadly no longer available *sob* – it sold out in 20 minutes on launch night! But you can find the full Lac Attack range on Harlow&Co HERE.
If you want to see the other polishes I picked up from this collection, have a nosey here: The Horcrux Of It, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, and Dementor’s Kiss.
