Swatches & Review - The new and improved F.U.N Lacquer Princess 2.0 collection!

Hi loves! Today I have a super picture heavy, but gorgeous post for you. At least I like to think it's gorgeous! It's the new and improved F.U.N Lacquer Princess 2.0 collection. This consists of 12 holographic shades, all inspired by Disney princesses. The previous collection already looked gorgeous, but I never grabbed any of those, so when I received this I was in heaven ♥.

First let's talk a bit about formula. They all have a really nice formula, not too thick nor thin, and applied evenly and easy. All shades except Mulan, Snow White and Tiana needed 2 coats and they all dried quickly and smooth. A top coat is recommended for a shiny finish. None of the shades seem to stain or were hard to remove, and the holographic effect is visible in all of them.

My swatches are over a base of Duri Rejuvacote and topped with Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer, photographed in direct artificial light, no flash used.

The release date for these beauties is August 23rd for pre-order, and August 30th for the actual release. The pre-order (for sets only) starts on August 23 Saturday 11.30pm Singapore Time. Enjoy a exclusive 10% discount on the entire princess 2.0 collection on pre-sales! The pre-sales will last for 24 hours and end on August 24 Sunday 11.30pm Singapore Time. Official release on August 30 Saturday 11.30pm Singapore Time.

F.U.N Lacquer Snow White is a white holo, or at least it as close to a white as one could get while making a holographic polish. The holographic pigment has a silver tinge to it so it's actually a very soft grey shade, but it's still very pretty. This one needed 3 coats but even for such a light shade it played really nice on the nails. The holographic effect is a bit stronger in person.

F.U.N Lacquer Aurora is a lovely pink shade, really creamy in finish and almost opaque in 1 coat, though I did 2 for good measure. It´s really girly!

F.U.N Lacquer Rapunzel is a lucious purple shade, quite warm toned and perfect for both Summer and Fall I think. Again, very creamy and almost opaque in 1 coat.

F.U.N Lacquer Anna is a periwinkle blue shade with a gorgeous pink flash. Please, take your time and drool over it! Absolutely gorgeous and I think this will go FAST. This had a slightly more crelly feel to it, it isn´t as solid as other shades but it makes the pink flash show even better. Strong holo as well!

F.U.N Lacquer Cinderella is a sky blue shade and really creamy as well. A gorgeous shade and the holographic effect is really nice.

F.U.N Lacquer Jasmine is a bit of a chameleon, it´s a blue tinged dark grey or a greyed out slate blue.. not sure yet ;-). Whatever you want to call it, it sure looks gorgeous! One of the stronger holo's in the bunch and again a creamy formula.

F.U.N Lacquer Ariel is a lovely and unique shade of green I think, it reminds me of seaweed. More of a crelly formula, still opaque in 2 coats but with a bit more squish to it.

F.U.N Lacquer Tiana is a bright grassy green with a golden flash. Such an eyecatcher! This one had a bit more sheer formula and needed 3 coats for proper density, but they literally flow onto the nail without effort. The golden flash is a headturner.

F.U.N Lacquer Mulan is a gorgeous nude shade. It's like a champagne beige with a slightly metallic finish and a lovely holographic effect. 3 coats needed but such a versatile polish!

F.U.N Lacquer Belle is a bright golden color with a strong metallic finish. I'm not sure if I like this on my skintone but if you love gold, you'll love this! Good holographic effect as well.

F.U.N Lacquer Pocahontas is a chocolaty shade with a metallic finish. It also has a golden flash to it. This is quite intense somehow and the holographic effect is a beautiful addition to the basecolor.

F.U.N Lacquer Merida is a reddish brown shade with a nice holo flare. This is a really warm shade and even though I am not a brown enthusiast, it surprised me positively.

  2. Jasmine, Cinderella, Anna...Are you and YuinYing both trying to kill me?
    I think I'll go for Snow White, though. It's been some time I'm longing for a with-ish holo and I was considering When Doves Cry by LLarowe. Snow White is equally stunning!

    *happy dance*
    I meddled for too long when the original collection was issued and when I finally decided only 3 were available - Belle, Merida and Tiana.
    And now I certainly need Anna (a gorgeous newcomer!), Ariel, than maybe Pocahontas and Cinderella and Snow White... oh my poor wallet :)

  14. I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of the browns and golds but oh my, the rest are stunning! I am loving just about all of them. Aurora is my favorite since she is my favorite princess but Anna, Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine, and Rapunzel are also amazing. I want them!

    Awesome swatches! I think most look better, but I do wish I'd got the old Rapunzel.

  23. I bought Anna, and it is a silver lilac shade! Nothing like the gorgeous periwinkle shown here did I get a dud? I bought from llarowe and they assured me that's how Anna looks. I want to cry! :(
