Swatches & Review - Too Fancy Lacquer The Blossoming Collection

Hi loves! An exciting post today, my girl Charlene has come up with some gorgeous new shades so I proudly present: Too Fancy Lacquer The Blossoming Collection. It consists of 4 pastel shades including Lake Como (a pastel sky blue holo), Call Me Queen Bee (a mustard leaning pastel yellow holo), Lilac Rain (a soft pastel purple holo with green shimmers) and Springs In My Steps (a mint green ultra holo).

I think there are some really unique shades in this collection and good news: you can pre order them right now! So take a look at my swatches and then get over to the website to purchase some pretties :D. The pre order runs until Sunday April 12th, 12PM EDT.

Call Me Queen Bee is a mustard leaning pastel yellow holo. This one is super unique and even though it's a bit of an odd color, I love it! The holoographic finish shows up nicely and the formula is perfect. 2 creamy coats is all you need. Swatches over Duri Rejuvacote and topped with Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer.

Lake Como is a pastel sky blue holo. Depending on the lighting this'll look brighter or softer! The name for this one is very fitting and I think it will look great on tanned tootsies. Again, perfect formula, same as CMQB.

Lilac Rain is a soft pastel purple holo with green shimmer. The green shimmers might not really be visible in my pictures, but they add so much interest in real life! A really nice touch to a delicate color. As with the polishes before, great formula though this one looks a bit more sheer on the first coat. Still perfect in 2!

Springs In My Steps is a mint green ultra holo. And when I say ultra holo, I mean holo with a capitol H. HO to the LO holo. BAM! Uhm, so yeah, I obviously love this one lol! Almost opaque in 1 coat this might also be good for stamping. Perfect formula and 2 easy coats are all you need.

  1. These are gorgeous! I especially love Lake Como and Lilac Dreams. Call Me Queen Bee is a bit too yellow for me but I'm a big fan of the name. I love the song Royals by Lorde.

  4. Thanks Melissa! Call Me Queen Bee is a great shade if you normally don't like yellows - the mustard in it makes it so much more wearable I think :). And yes, the name!
