Hi loves! Today I have a very large and fun post to share with you, including a giveaway of the gorgeous shades I'm reviewing! It's the Lacquester Pornflakes collection, consisting of 4 metallic flakie toppers that shift all kinds of gorgeous colors. Truth be told, these are my first and only metallic flakie polishes but I really really like them! They prove to be very versatile and eyecatching.
Grab a napkin, you'll need it ^^. And if you can't wait, the giveaway is at the end of the post ;-).
The formulation on all of these is the same, except for the size of the flakies. So I won't be going in depth on formulations with each shade, just check out the overall conclusion at the end!
Lacquester Boulevard of Broken Dreams is a medium sized flakie, flashing purple, blue, magenta and a lot of shades in between. I used 2 coats over Kaleidoscope 119B, a minty creme shade. It's quite sparsely covering though over black (shown at the end) it's more covering.
Lacquester Greeench is a medium sized flakie, flashing green and blue and some shades in between. I used 2 coats over Sinful Colors Blue Crushin'. It isn't superdense nor sparse, leaving enough of the basecolor to make fun combo's but in more dim lighting, you have this lovely multichrome metallic finish.
Lacquester One Night in Bangkok is a small sized flakie, flashing purple just as Boulevard of Broken Dreams but this one's warmer in finish, it also flashes reddish and orange tones. I used 2 coats over a england Camelot. It's quite dense because of the small flakes.
Lacquester Speechless might be my favorite. It's a medium size flakie, the most sparse in appearance. I used 2 coats over El Corazon Cream 423/264 - the pink that appears in Speechless looked gorgeous against the creme base! You can see a whole lot of colors in Speechless - green, copper, pink, orange.. it's mesmerizing ♥.
These are all STUNNING. Application is perfect, the flakies spread out nicely and don't clump, the clear base isn't too thick nor thin, and the finish is supersmooth. You do need a topcoat as it dries a bit dull, but I use one always anyway. Removal isn't an issue either!
Over black the colorshift really pops, but I like how you can see the shape of the flakie on lighter colored bases. The opaque flakies stand out against anything and I'll have a lot more fun layering these - maybe do a jelly sandwich with a sheer white?
What do you think of these shades? Which one would be your pick and how would you layer it? Tell me in the comments!
