Aly's Dream Polish - Companion - Ballad of Serenity Collection

 I have an oldie but a goodie to show you from a long standing collection from Aly's Dream Polish!

The Ballad of Serenity Collection has seven very diverse polishes in it that are inspired by the one and only series...Firefly.

If you've seen it. You know which character this polish is inspired by. If you haven't seen it...it's on Netflix!

Okay let's have a look!

(It is a taffeta finish, a low sheen, almost duochrome like polish with a bit of sparkle. Purple with a red flash and red/pink microsparkle. This polish may have some intrusions or dark specks.)





Indoors, evening light, you can see the pink hue the polish takes on.









Coats -
Three thin coats. A little patchy due to the finish but with a few thin coats, no need to go thick on them, it's all good!
Color Intensity -
Yes and yes. It's intense in the way it can't be ignored. A close sister to the duochrome polish but not quite that. It's more like two colors that are one. A constant flash of pink and purple...you don't really see one color more than the other. A really fun and bold polish!
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Liquid Lacquer base coat

 Buy all the Aly's at -
And stay up to date with the happenings -

Swing by tomorrow for What I Wore and Thursday to see my review of Enchanted March 2014!

Dreamy Lacquer Company Review - Holo, Shimmer, and Cremes!

Well ladies and gents or gent since I think my husband is the only fella that reads my blog.

Because my weekend was littered with mostly downs rather than ups...I'm just gonna skip right to the fabulous for this post.

SO MUCH FABULOUS.

Dreamy Lacquer Company not only has the most freaking amazing logo but the polish is equally amazing.

There are so many colors and finishes to choose from in the shop. Anything that suits your fancy. It's probably there.

That's why I have a little hodge podge of finishes today! So let's have a look!


(a dark near-navy blue with a bit of shimmer)
 

You can see the "base" color on it's own here without the flash of the shimmer
 

Indoor in evening light
 


Coats -
Two coats. Perfectly smooth after second coat.
Color Intensity -
I'm not usually a huge fan of that duochrome type finish...while this isn't technically duochrome...the shimmer gives it that look. BUT with all that mumbo jumbo being said...it's amazingly pretty. When it catches the light it's like...hey now! But the base color on it's own is so fabulously sassy but vampy. Love.
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Liquid Lacquer base coat

(limited edition true red holographic polish)
 


 
                             
                              Direct Sun                                                              Indoors
 
 


Coats -
Two coats. Easy peasy. No issues at all with formula or application.
Color Intensity -
Bright bright bright! A pink leaning red holo. Gorgeous indoors but even more stunning outside!
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Liquid Lacquer base coat

(dusty dusky purple reminiscent of grapes hanging on the vine with just the right amount of holo sparkle)

 
 

                             
                                Direct Sunlight                                            Indoor Evening Light






Coats -
Two coats. Easy to work with. Oh so lovely.
Color Intensity -
This is tied as my fave out of these four polishes. Such a fun and fabulous grape colored polish. And the holo is strong with this one!
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Liquid Lacquer base coat
 
(sky blue creme)
 
 

 

Indoor 

 

It's so smooth and sleek!
 
Coats -
Two coats. This is more of a crelly so it takes two coats to even out but BOY does it even out nice and smooth.
Color Intensity -
Honestly this was an intense blue to me. Not because it was overly bright or loud but because it is the most perfect eggshell blue. This beauty is the one that's tied as a fave with Grandma's Grape Jelly!
