Daily Lacquer part 2: Satine

Welcome back lacquer lovers! Today I have the second of my two part Daily Lacquer series, another gorgeous polish from the All You Need Is Love collection, a valentines day collection inspired by the movie Moulin Rouge.

This is Satine is a gray/black based holographic polish packed with holographic glitter and holographic diamonds. I wish the pictures could capture the sparkle better, I'm sitting here in unnatural light distracted from my typing by my shining fingers.

This is three coats of Satine over bare nails. Two would have been sufficient, but I killed the holo by adding topcoat over the first two coats, and instead of starting over, I just added another coat on top.

Can you see that double rainbow?

You know I love my close up shots! This reminds me of a galaxy!

Satine's formula is fabulous, I would expect a polish packed with so much glitter to be thick and difficult to work with, but Satine has a great consistency. Thin enough that it goes on nicely, but thick enough that it covers completely and reaches opacity easily. I have not yet found a topcoat that doesn't dull holos, so without a topcoat, the texture is gritty, but that is to be expected due to the glitter. And all those diamond glitter? I didn't have to fish for those at all, they are packed in there!

Finally, here is a photo with the flash to bring out the holo. This polish truly is a Sparkling Diamond!

Daily Lacquer is a great quality, hand-made, 3-free nail polish. Check them out on Etsy and be sure to visit Daily Lacquer's Facebook page.

Til next time!
