First up is Too Fancy Lacquer Burnt Lavender. This shade was unnamed when I received it and Charlene had a naming contest, I think the winning name is very fitting! Even though this is a brown shade, there is a lot of purple to it. The finish is a strong linear holographic effect and it applied nicely in 2 slightly thick coats.

Next is Too Fancy Lacquer Just Look At The Flowers. If the name sounds familiar, you might be a fan of The Walking Dead. The scene it comes from is pretty.. heavy, to say the least. The shade is very fitting, being a muted and slightly darker red. The formula was very good, thinner than the previous shade but very opaque and easy to handle. Also with a nice holographic finish that adds some great dimension to the shade.

Last but not least is Too Fancy Lacquer Till The End Of Time which is a gorgeous purple with multicolor shimmer throughout. Unfortunately my camera thought "screw you purple, let's make you appear like a blue shade!" so I did some color correcting but it washed out the shimmer a bit. I promise you this shade is way more pretty in real life!

Formulawise it wasn't troublesome but if you prefer thinner formula's you might like to use some thinner since it's quite thick. It's also very opaque and I barely needed 2 coats!

While it might not be the biggest release Too Fancy Lacquer has done, I definitely like these 3 new and unique shades. Burnt Lavender is more wearable, where as Till The End Of Time is perfect for the holidays. And just for the name alone I already love Just Look At The Flowers!

  32. Maybe Till the End of Time is supposed to be a reference to another show - Doctor Who? It does look pretty blue in the pictures, though the Tardis isn't that purple.
