Swatches & Review - 3 LilypadLacquer exclusives for Hypnotic Polish

Hi loves! Today I have a fun 3 piece set to show you. They are from LilypadLacquer and produced exclusively for Hypnotic Polish, your favorite indie stockist ^^. Compared to the last set of exclusives these are definitely more happy and cheery in color.

LilypadLacquer Amphetrite is a teal with a teal shimmering glow. It also has micro holo and gold flakes creating an amazing depth. This is my absolute favorite of the three! Formula was great, 2 easy coats were all I needed. I was also curious how it'd look matte so I used the Catrice Silk Matt topcoat.

LilypadLacquer Hera is a mauve based pink with micro purple flakies. The flakies give a metallic feel to the finish and the color is quite soft and easy to wear. It was a bit thinner so I used 3 coats to be sure of opacity.

LilypadLacquer Hestia is a juicy coral, very happy and summery! The holographic effect is nicely visible and really puts a smile on my face. Very pigmented, I barely needed 2 coats for opacity!

Overall conclusion
Obviously the teal Amphetrite is stealing my heart, but the others aren't too shabby either. Formula was good, while being different for all 3 shades, and I didn't have any issues with removal though I didn't wear them as a full mani yet. Hestia is a fun summer shade and Hera would make for an office appropriate pop of color!

How you do feel about these 3 shades? And which one's your favorite? Tell me in the comments!
Hypnotic Polish is a European based indie stockist that ships internationally. Besides LilypadLacquerd, they also carry Smitten Polish, El Corazon, Colors by Llarowe, Dance Legend and many others. For more information check out their Facebook page or follow them on Instagram.

    I agree, these are definitely more cheery. I love The teal matted and would love to see all three matted just because I think everything should be matted.... My own personal selfishness 😁 I do love these!
