Swatches & Review - F.U.N Lacquer Spring 2014 Collection

Hi loves! How was your Easter? Hope you enjoyed, even if you don't celebrate it in the traditional way. Today I have 3 more beautiful F.U.N Lacquers to show you, part of the Spring 2014 collection (and currently on sale, check the end of the post for the info!). I'll be showing you Dazzling Blue which is a lovely medium blue holographic shade. Then there's Pink Tulips On The Green, a white to medium mint green thermal polish. And last, but not least, is With SPRINGkles On Top, a superfun rainbow glitter topper that is also filled with holographic goodness!

In other news, there will probably be a small silence on the blog the rest of the week. Last Sunday night I was making the bed and somehow snapped a nail, really bad. I suck at taking pictures of my Cinderella hand and the break is so nasty I won't be able to swatch for a week or so :-(. Boo!


F.U.N Lacquer Dazzling Blue is a medium blue holographic shade. The base is slightly jelly like, which gives it great depth and sparkle, but you do have to pay attention a bit while applying. Otherwise you'll need 3 coats to cover any bald spots, if you apply with more attention 2 coats is more than enough. 

The holographic effect isn't the strongest I've encountered, but the vivid shade of blue and the gold sparkle makes up for it. It didn't stain upon removal which is a big plus too!

F.U.N Lacquer Pink Tulips On The Green is a white (warm) to
medium mint green (cold) thermal polish. There's this gorgeous pink/orange shimmer in it which also explains the name of the polish :-). I really love thermals from F.U.N Lacquer and this isn't an exception. The formula isn't a part of that love, just like the other 2 I've tried it's thick without thinner (I added 4/5 drops), and because it dries so quickly you really have to work fast.

I used 3 coats to be sure the warm shade wouldn't be sheer and it's so bold and pretty! The color transition is quick when exposed to heat or cold. On me it wears on the "in between" shade, a minty green that isn't as bright as when it's cold.

F.U.N Lacquer With SPRINGkles On Top is a superfun rainbow glitter topper that is also filled with holographic sparkles. The holographic effect is really strong but not greying so it's easy to layer over lighter colors, and the glitter comes in bot hexagonal and square shapes in a multitude of colors.

My base is Essence Love Me, Cupcake and I did a brush gradient on all nails but my ringfinger, which is just one regular coat of With SPRINGkles On Top. It applies evenly and easy, no manipulation of the glitter needed nor does it look thicker in some areas which is normally always the issue with me and layering polishes.

    And I love the last mani; I just can't get enough of these glitters-near-cuticles, especially when they're full of such fun colours. Lovely.
