Swatches & Review - Too Fancy Lacquer Some Kind Of Purple [prototype]

Hi loves! I try to keep the Too Fancy Lacquer swatches a bit steady and spread out through the year - that way there are always more beauties for you to discover ;-). This time all the attention goes to a prototype that'll be stocked in the upcoming restock (hopefully around the end of February but keep an eye out for more info on the TFL Facebook page.

Let's take a look!

Too Fancy Lacquer Some Kind Of Purple [prototype] is a medium purple shade. It's quite cool in tone and has a nice strong holographic effect, but it isn't overpowering. Charlene does some really nice purples (remember Till The End Of Time, or Violette Etoilee?) and this one isn't a exception.

The formula was thinner than I'm used to from TFL, but still easy manageable and opaque in 2 thin coats. It's fluid yet stays in place nicely. It doesn't have any added shimmer or flakies, but like I said the holographic effect is good enough to have you mesmerized.

Hopefully you'll enjoy this shade as much as I did. It'll be availabe at the next restock which hopefully happens at the end of February.

How do you feel about this purple? Will you be trying to grab a bottle in the next restock? Tell me in the comments!

  23. Een simpele LED lamp van IKEA! Ik richt 'm direct op mijn nagels, het is een neutrale witte kleur en ik stel de witbalans altijd handmatig in zodat het zo kleurgetrouw mogelijk is. Ik geloof deze: http://www.ikea.com/nl/nl/catalog/products/80287989/
