ND Lacquers Spring Flowers Collection and Giveaway

Greetings and Nailutations!

Spring is in the air…well it is here in Arizona, the Sonoran Desert.  It is getting warm (actually got sun burned last weekend while meeting up with a fellow nail addict (@amylovesnewwave).  I know it is colder in other parts of the country, which is why I figured I should bring out the spring colors and have a warming giveaway…even if it just warms your heart.  :)

This review is on ND Lacquers' Spring Flowers collection (minus Lily - a white polish).  Get ready for pastel and floral colors!

First up is a delicate peach by the name of Tulip.  Photos below show 3 coats to achieve total opacity.  What I liked most about this polish is that there are little shimmers in the creme polish.



Next up is a gorgeous periwinkle blue called Hyacinth.  This calming and soothing blue also has little shimmer flecks dispersed in the lacquer.  Below shows 2 coats for total opacity.




Camellia is the third polish, which is a soft pink.  It is beautiful!





Next is Lilac, a gorgeous lavender, which is my favorite of the set.  My eyeballs love this color!




Lastly is the glitter topper called Bouquet.  It contains coral squares, iridescent, lavender, pink and silver hexes.  I have it over a all the colors (ring is Lilac and Camellia mixed together).



Loves:  Who isn't ready for some pretty spring colors?  This collection and theme go together like peanut butter and honey (were you expecting jelly?  seriously…honey is SOOOO good with peanut butter).  Formulas were easy to work with, lighter colors required 3 coats for opacity while the darker colors were opaque with 2.

Wishes: This collection did a great job hitting all the expectations of a floral motif theme.  If I were to try to improve on anything - I would have liked to have seen some little flower glitters in the glitter topper to really tie flowers or some additional shapes to play on different shapes of flower petals, but the colors selected for the glitter topper were perfect.
