Swatches & Review - Renaissance Custom Lacquer Runnymede & Spadina

Hi guys! 
Are you ready for 2 more awesome shades by Renaissance Custom Lacquer?

Last week I showed you Nightshade. Today I present you with Runnymede and Spadina!

First up is Runnymede. Runnymede is a gorgeous mauve, almost foil like, shimmer with a subtle golden duochrome. The duochrome was insanely hard to capture on camera but I hope you can still see it a little bit. Application was great. Shown here is 2 thin coats, but if you are careful this polish will be completely opaque in one coat: the pigmentation is insane. It did dry a little but dull, so it really benefits from a nice shiny topcoat. Wear time was great, no chipping after 3 days. And removal was nice and easy.

I really like this polish. It goes great with my skin tone and the subtle duochrome is quite enchanting!

Next up is Spadina. Spadina is a very glowy golden brown shimmer polish. For some reason my mind wants me to say 'olive green' but there is no green in this polish whatsoever so I don't quite know why I keep wanting to say that lol. As with her sister Runnymede, Spadina can be opaque in one coat, although I'm showing you 2 thin coats in the pictures. Application, wear time and removal were also great with this one.

Now Spadina isn't a colour I would have chosen myself, because at first I thought it was a bit bland. I don't think so any more though. I loved wearing this polish, it's just gorgeous in its simplicity and I would even go as far as to say this is a must have! I looks great on fair skin but I think it would also be great on a darker complexion.

So what do you guys think about these 2 polishes and their gorgeous sister Nightshade? Which one do you like best? Or do you like them all? Hope to see you soon!
