Hello and happy Caturday!! If you follow on facebook or instagram, you might have seen that not only am I down to nubs AGAINNNNN, but I've been enjoying wearing my favorite OPI Softshades colors on said nubs this week, and I've been reminded of why I love those creamy, glossy sheer polishes so much. One of the other things I like using those polishes for is as bases for colorful and chunky glitters, as they highlight the variances so nicely and just make the colors extra vibrant.
Honey Bunny Lacquer's newest collection is one full of such glitters, and anchored by two stand alone colors. This collection is inspired by creator Deb's favorite band, premier grunge artists Alice In Chains. It you're a fan of the band, or of grunge in general, you might recognize a few of the names.
First up is Black Gives Way to Blue, an off-black jelly base alit with blue, teal, and magenta microshimmer. In the bottle, it's very dark but once it's on the nail, those blue shimmers become predominant and give off a wickedly deep and beautiful golw. Black does indeed give way to blue. Application is easy. Deb is a genius. Three coats.
Pretty Done has tiny silver bar glitter, tiny, small, and medium sized satiny white hexes, white, lavender, and orchid purple squares, large metallic purple dots, and large matte lavender stars in a clear base. This base is thin and the large dots all sink to the bottom. Fishing around yielded a star on every nail but it was very hard to get a dot. I'd almost given up hope, but after much shaking and maneuvering of the bottle, I managed to snag one-- or rather, it happened to alight on the brush at the right second. One coat over OPI Don't Burst My Bubble.
Sunshine is cool. It's a variance of metallic red-orange and gold hexes and squares, small satiny cream colored hexes and squares, and medium sized satiny cream colored circles in a clear base. The thickness of the base and the weight of the dots is in perfect balance here and they don't sink to the bottom, but come out easily and plentifully. One coat over OPI Barre My Soul.
Last, but not least, is Dirt, a frosty, shimmery milk chocolate shade. As with Black Gives Way to Blue, application is nice and easy, though this one is pretty brushstroke-y. Still, or maybe because of that, I'm reminded of one of my favorite sets of pearls. Two coats.
Honey Bunny lacquer is available in both 15ml bottles for $9 and 5ml bottles for $4.
