Knockout Lacquer Review and Swatches - Beautifully Bruised Trio

Are you guys ready for oh so many wonderful things??
 
I've reviewed/swatched a handful of Knockout Lacquer polishes and every single one of them has completely taken my breath away. Check them out here, here and here!
 
This new collection is my absolute favorite out of all the Knockout Lacquers I own.
 
Every time I post about the brand I ALWAYS include videos because it's the best way to capture the wow. So with that being said...not only are the pictures plentiful but there is a video of each polish at the end of each set of photos. The videos will look much better on my IG (they will be posted there throughout the day) they are kind of hard to REALLY see on the computer. 
 
So trust me when I say it's worth scrolling all the way through the photos until the end because disappointed...you will not be!

(on the site this is described as a deep purple but I was told by the maker it varies on skin tone - for me it's a pink leaning purple - more of an orchid - possibly with thicker coats it would've been a darker purple // three thin coats topped with HK Girl Top Coat)

So I'll just do a quick run down of the polishes rather than my normal full sectioned off review since this post is already so lengthy!
 
Application/Formula - Perfection as always with no issues. No staining with the blue either.
Color Intensity - All of them area absolutely brilliant. Even more stunning in person. MUST HAVES. Even though O-Negative ended up being lighter than I had anticipated I still really love what I received.
 
My favorite is A-Positive - the mossy green is stunning - I don't have another polish like it!

Pahlish Review and Swatches - Reinette

Hey guys!
 
So I want to update you on what I said last week about my potentially "big day" I had last week. Because not updating you wouldn't be cool,since I had some people ask!
Sadly, it wasn't a big day, I had an interview for a really great opportunity and I thought I knocked it out of the park. I got word over the weekend that I didn't get the job.
 
So that was a major bummer...I'm super tired of looking for work...interviewing every so often then... nothing. Such is the life of the unemployed I suppose.
 
At least there's always polish!
 
And on THAT much more positive subject...let's have a look at some photos.
 
(blackened plum with copper flakes)
 
**indirect sun**
 
Coats -
Three thin coats.
Color Intensity -
I love the intensity of this beauty. It's bold and vampy but the copper flakes in this otherwise very dark polish really put some extra life into it. Which oddly enough makes it feel kinda badass. You wouldn't think "flakes" of anything would do that but these totally do.
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Pretty Serious
 
Where to find Pahlish -
 
 
The best part about this beauty...it's still for sale on the Pahlish site! Wahoo!
 
Thanks for reading and I'll be back tomorrow with the new collection from Knockout Lacquer...you seriously don't want to miss it.
