Aurora Lacquers - The Dusty Fairy and Shimmering Orchids

Hey friends!

How goes it? I hope your weekend was more active than mine. I managed to tweak my knee somehow so I did little to nothing this weekend. Thank you to my husband for helping me this weekend when I needed something!

I did get a chance to get some pretty polish on my paws though on Saturday! 

Aurora Lacquers is a new polish brand that really hit it out of the park with her first handful of colors!

I have a couple to share with you today and a couple more next week. 

I'm a lover of all things whimsical and the names alone of these beauties speak to that part of me. Then they go and end up being stunning polishes too. That's always a good thing.

Let's take a look shall we?

The Dusty Fairy
(*grey-silver polish with tones of blue and purple throughout)



There is SO much shimmer and glimmer in this baby that it's hard to capture on camera!

Ooooh...so pretty.


Let's MACRO! 

I'm obsessed with the blue shimmers in this baby. I don't see as much purple as I do blue but I'm not upset about that. I love it just how it shows in these photos. I wasn't able to get a direct sunlight photo because of the whole knee thing but I can only imagine how stunning it is in the sun.

Coats -
Three thin coats. Two probably would've been enough but I was obsessed with seeing all the shimmer as I was painting the coats! A thicker formula but nothing that is an issue to work with.
Color Intensity -
Wowza! Very intense. Not like a bright/bold color type intensity but like...something a fairy princess or Tinkerbell would wear...so it's whimsically bold.
 Top Coat - HK Girl

Shimmering Orchids
(*pink-purple glitter polish packed with tons of sparkle and glimmer)






Look at those orchids shimmer!


Coats -
Just like the beauty above three thin coats. And also two coats probably would've been sufficient. Another thicker formula but nothing that made the polish unmanageable as you can see it's very smooth and not goopy. 
Color Intensity -
It's a beautiful in between of vivid pink and light purple. Not too much but just enough. The sparkles have the chance to really shine in this one. Shine on sparkles!
 Top Coat - HK Girl

Aurora Lacquers had it's "soft" Grand Opening Friday and Sunday with just a few polishes on hand to sell but make sure to like the FB Page and keep an eye on the Etsy shop! I know I'll be trying to snag some full sizes of a few of the ones I have!
