B Squared Lacquer's Spring Creme Collection Review

Press Sample
Happy Saturday Polished Babes!! I have another awesome collection from B Squared Lacquer to share with you today. The Spring Creme Collection consists of six creme polishes in super pretty pastel colors. I also have two new topcoats to show you. One is a holographic topcoat and the other is a black and white glitter topper. All polishes appear with Shine B-Right Topcoat unless stated otherwise.

First up is a pastel yellow creme called Bees Knees.  Hehe... such a cute name! I used three coats for a smooth and even finish. The first coat was somewhat patchy, but not a major problem at all. My 2-year-old daughter's favorite color is yellow, so this will definitely be used for one of her upcoming manis and pedis.


Funny Bunny is the pink of the collection. This is one that appeared to have more of a crelly type of formula versus that of a true creme. Since that is the case, I needed three coats, as it was pretty sheer upon the first coat. This one was difficult to accurately capture, but I promise I did my best. I found this pink very flattering on my complexion.


Rain Boots is a pastel blue creme. I used two medium coats for even coverage. The formula on this one was pretty good. Blues like this one always have a place in my collection!


Fuzzy Navel is a pastel peachy creme polish. I really LOVE everything about this color! This was another with more of a crelly formula, so three coats were used for even coverage. Although sheer upon the first coat, the formula was fantastic.


Sprout is a pastel green with that pistachio type of tone that is so popular for the spring season. The first coat was somewhat patchy and tricky; however, it leveled out well and ended up being one of my favorites of the collection!


Lastly, I have Viola, a pastel purple creme. This one required two coats and is shown without topcoat. One thing I noticed is that the color seems to darken when topcoats are added. Either way, this color is absolutely adorable. The formula was great...really smooth and easy to apply. This is purple, so of course I LOVE it!


Rainbow Distraction is a holographic topcoat. I used it here over a skittle mani with some of the cremes from the collection. It is shown with one coat over the creme and no topcoat. I think this is a really good holo topcoat, as it doesn't grey out the polish and it has a very pleasing holo effect. It isn't super strong, but it definitely makes a statement.

Domino Effect is a black and white glitter topper. It has white triangles, black circles, and smaller pieces of black and white glitters. The glitter is really dense, so not many coats are needed to get a lot of glitter onto the nail. I used one coat over a skittle mani of some of the Spring Cremes and it is really cute! I've been seeing so many triangle glitter polishes released lately, but this is the only one that caught my interest.

Two coats of Domino Effect over Viola.

Here is is one coat over Fuzzy Navel.

I feel like I'm repeating myself every time I review this brand, but I can't help it. Mia has released another really cute and high quality collection of nail polishes. I am happy to see such beautiful pastel cremes for the spring season. Hopefully Mia will bless us with more beautiful creme collections for each season.

These polishes will be available for preorder starting today, Saturday April 19th at 3PM CDT. The preorders will begin shipping the week of April 28th. The official launch is scheduled for May 3rd at 3PM CDT, so don't fret if you are unable to snag them up today.

  15. All the colors are soooo pretty! While I like the holo topper, it is the black/white matte glitter Domino Effect that really peaked my interest. I love that there are absolutely no bar glitters in it! And the triangle and different shapes are cute.
