Hi loves! Ready for more awesomeness that is called Too Fancy Lacquer? I know I am :-). Today I am showing you the beauties from The Viola Trio. In line with the previous The Bluemuda Trio, this time Charlene created a set of gorgeous purples. Release is set for January 9th at 12pm (US EDT)/7pm (CET)/2am (Hong Kong time). The formula's of these are devine and the colors lovely, so let's take a look!
A Currant Affair is a reddish plum holo. I adore shades that are in the berry range as they look really nice on my skintone. This shade actually reminded me of my favorite lipstick, MAC Rebel! The holographic effect is easy to see but not overpowering, and in 2 coats this polish is opaque. I didn't use topcoat in any of these swatches (not sure why haha) but I can assure you they aren't effected by topcoat at all! Application was (as always) a dream!
Prima Donna is a silvery lavender ultra holo. The ultra holo finish is new and together with Love Diamonds the first of is kind. The holographic effect.. WOW. I was wiggling my nails for like 5 minutes before realizing I should take pictures when swatching, not just admire what's on my nails ^^. Again, easy application, no topcoat but will not be effected by it, 2 coats for a fully opaque result (I want to try this for stamping!).
Shrinking Violet is a pastel violet/periwinkle bordering shade with a little more subtle holo. It's very creamy (reminding me of Moody Blue) and the shade is very unusual! I was really surprised with this one and feel it might be a surprise favorite of all of you, too! Buttery application, 2 coats, no topcoat.
That's it, all three shades in The Viola Trio! Which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments!
