Swatches & Review - Too Fancy Lacquer Counting Stars and The Night Porter

Hi loves! Today I have swatches of 2 dark Too Fancy Lacquer beauties. I am kinda kicking myself for waiting so long to swatch these.. because they are really really pretty! Oh well, at least I get to show them to you now? Both are currently not available but you might stumble upon them somewhere  - Too Fancy Lacquer The Night Porter is an exclusive or Rainbow Connection UK and Too Fancy Lacquer Counting Stars is just a "regular" release.

Too Fancy Lacquer Counting Stars is a unique beauty, especially in the Too Fancy Lacquer collection, since it isn't a holo but a duochrome! And such an amazing one.. It mainly goes from purple to emerald green, but it's like 5 shades of purple and 5 shades of green, and then there's some blue in it as well, and to make it even better there are these gorgeous golden flakies in it! Formula is great as well, first coat seemed a bit thin and patchy but the second coat made it well covering, smooth and opaque. I finished with a layer of topcoat.


Too Fancy Lacquer The Night Porter


Too Fancy Lacquer The Night Porter is produced exclusively for Rainbow Connection UK. It's an amazing shade, at first (when looking at it in the bottle) I thought it would be a near black linear holo, but it's not. It's a warm coppery shade! I love the depth in this shade and how rich it looks. Also, it has that amazing, buttery, opaque in almost one coat TFL formula that I love so much <3. Yup, it's perfect! Again, finished with topcoat.

Overall conclusion
I am so mad at myself for letting these babies sit unattended for so long! But I am definitely happy I discovered their true beauty, because now I'll definitely wear them more often. The formula was best on The Night Porter but I love the colorshift and golden flakies in Counting Stars.

How do you feel about these dark shades? Fancy any of them?
Too Fancy Lacquer is a hand-blended indie brand based in Hong Kong. The formula is 3 free (no formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate). You can find Too Fancy Lacquer on their own websiteFacebookTwitter and Instagram. Other e-tailers selling Too Fancy Lacquer can be found here.

    I generally don't lean towards those dark brooding shades but The Night Porter is gorgeous.
