Swatches & Review - Too Fancy Lacquer The Viola Trio

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!

  13. Thanks Kerry!
    The stamp would be great with gold on black too I think (your user icon made me think of that!)

  16. While they are very close, I can assure you they are not.. But, it depends how much you care for silvery super holo's to determine if you need both. Compared to Prima Donna, Love Diamonds is more on the nude side while Prima Donna is more purple in comparison.

    Thanks a lot, I see with some staring and comparing, that one is a little more purple than the other. Just getting my list ready for the restock :)

  19. You're really getting me here ... I think I'll finally have to give in and get some TFLs!!

  20. Would love to but I'm on a no-buy (sort of, unless I see a rare polish of a one-of-a-kind deal. I even skipped on the latest Zoya deal 'cause the shipping price would've killed the point!) at the moment, I have waaay too many untrieds and I've been feeling like the polishes I get are not getting enough love from me. I think I only have a couple of shades that I've worn more than three times! And I'm horrible at destashing so I'd better just cut on buying new polishes.
