Aurora Lacquers Review and Swatches - Mystic Mermaid Collection

 My oh my do I have some pretties to share with you today.

Aurora Lacquers recently released the Mystic Mermaid Collection and if the name of the collection wasn't enough to make you get your shop on just wait until you see the polish!
 
I have three polishes from this collection to share with you today.
Siren's Aura, Sailor Eyes, and Nixie.
 
Just wait until you see the glitter topper in the photo below....
 
Let's get started because there are LOTS of pretty photos to see!

 
(mystic amethyst linear holo with a slight duo-chrome shift)
 




Overcast outdoor photos...managed to get a hint of sun in the first!

 

 




 
(teal-blue linear holo with shimmery purple flecks)
 




Overcast outdoor shots!


Those purple flecks...swoon!

 
 
(teal/blue/green glitters that is reminiscent of mermaid scales)
-Below you'll find Nixie over three polishes. Sailor Eyes, Essie - Licorice, and Zoya - Marina
-Varying top coats used and noted

Here's video of Nixie in the sunlight!
Coats -
Siren's Aura - 3 thin coats but 2 regular coats would suffice. Perfect application for ALL three.
Sailor Eyes - same as above
Nixie - All photos are with one coat! Best glitter topper formula I've used!
Color Intensity -
Siren's Aura - I'm not usually a huge "color shift" fan but the dusty purple and gray shift is absolutely magical. A must have.
Sailor Eyes - A polish made for a mermaid. Paired with Nixie this little number is a duo made for the sea. Such a beautiful and bright teal blue
Nixie - Oh yeah...as you can see this glitter topper is so versatile. All the glitters really pop not matter what color it's paired with. I'm OBSESSED with this topper matted (obviously) it's really something else. My favorite pairing is Nixie over the blue/gray Zoya polish Marina! It's so whimsical!
Top Coat - HK Girl
Base Coat - Liquid Lacquer base coat
 
There is ONE Nixie available in the shop, though that may change by the time this posts, but stay tuned because the shop will be restocked at some point this week! The links to follow Aurora Lacquers will be below so you can get all the info!
