Royal Lacquer Review & Swatches

Hiyah there Polished Babes! I have a review of some pretties from a new-to-me brand called Royal Lacquer. You may recall me mentioning this brand when I reviewed the Vynails by Royal Lacquer during my St. Paddy's Day post. Anyway, the owner, Tiffany is a sweetheart (of course...check out that name ;) and she sent me these beauties to share with you. 

Lipsmacker is described by the brand as a "bubblegum pink, creamy holo." I think that description is right on target. Lipsmacker was sheer on the first coat, but built up nicely in three thin coats. The formula was good and didn't give me any issues at all. I really like this color!

Derby Girl is a "deep violet jelly with small holo, pink hex glitters." It also has the perfect amount of scattered holo particles (or at least they appear to be), which gives it great dimension in conjunction with the glitters. The formula was thick, but it a good way. It applied like a breeze and went on easily in two coats. This one is absolutely gorgeous and my favorite of the ones I was sent! :)

Velvet Suit Man, according to the brand, is a "bright red with subtle holo." Bright indeed....this baby isn't subtle at all! The formula was absolute perfection and gave me no issues whatsoever. It was completely opaque in just one coat, but I used two as usual.

Next up is Miss Priss, "light lavender leaning violet jelly with muli-sizes, shapes & colors of glitter." This one has a super sheer base and chunky glitters, so application was slightly more demanding. I needed four coats to reach opacity and I needed to wait several minutes between each coat to prevent the glitters from dragging. I think the end result is super cute though!

The last polish I have for you today is Tucson. This one is described by the maker as "a turquoise jelly with multi-sized and shaped gold glitter & gold holo glitters with chocolate brown glitters. There is also glints of iridescent blue/green square glitters." The formula on Tucson is rather thin, but careful application results in a gorgeous mani! I used three thin coats and I absolutely adore this color combination. Although the formula is thin, it isn't overly problematic. You just have to be careful to prevent flooding the cuticle area. Anyway, this is my second fave! Love, love, love!!

Overall, my first experience with Royal Lacquer products has been a complete win! I think these polishes are cute and creative and the Vynails are easy to work with for nail art designs. Be sure to check out the important info below regarding the brand.

    Thanks! I was really surprised at how much I liked the pink, especially since I'm not a pink girl.
