Leesha's Lacquer Swatches and Review

Hello again! I have a long overdue post for everyone. Today, I have a review on a new indie polish brand my blogger friend Alicia from Leesha's Lacquer is about to launch on Etsy. The two polishes I'm going to review are from her Native American Collection as well as a bonus that's still in the works. The entire collection consists of 5 colors in total.

Butterfly Dancer has a mix of square and hexagon glitters in black and pale colors consisting of blue, pink, green, yellow, and more in a clear base. This color was inspired and named after the Fancy Shawl Dancers. The pale glitters in this polish is gorgeous because it adds such a whimsical quality to it. I applied one coat over Barielle Welcome Ohm.

Four Directions has a mix of black, red, white, and yellow square and hexagon glitters in a clear base. This color was inspired and named after the Medicine wheel. The mix of colors in this polish really reminds me of checkers or a deck of cards. For even distribution, I used the dabbing method. This is one coat over OPI Stranger Tides.

Lastly, this color has no name but its a color that might be included in Alicia's next collection. This polish has a mix of square, hexagon, and shard glitters in black, red, purple, green, orange, yellow, white, and probably more colors in a clear base. This color is also the most dense out of the three. This is one coat over Sally Hansen Pacific Blue.

Here's a look at all three colors swatched on a nail stick. I used two coats for each color. As you can see, there probably best used as layering glitters. The only one I can see being used as a full coverage glitter is the prototype one. From left to right: Four Directions, Butterfly Dancer, and prototype color.

Overall, I really like all three colors. The formula was on the thicker side but they were easy to work with. My favorites has to be Butterfly Dancer and the prototype color. Both are just gorgeous and required minimal dabbing to get a good coat on. A fun fact to know is that each label is handmade so every bottle is a little different from one another. There also vegan and cruelty free.

Alicia's polishes are going to retail for $8 for a full size bottle. Her collection will come out sometime near the end of July. She's only going to be making 5-6 colors each so there's only going to be 25-30 bottles available for this collection. So snatch these up if you like them!
