Charlie's Rad Lacquer Swatch, Review and Giveaway

Greetings and Nailutations,

Holo and shimmer warning ahead!  Sparklings of epic proportion are in store!  Today's post is half of a haul I got from Charlie's Rad Lacquer.  The best thing is that she included a few extras, so that means a fun giveaway for you all!  I split the review into 2 parts so that there would be two winners.  Now, let's get to some swatches.  For each color I took photos in my light box, which filters the light, but then I took photos under my kitchen light which brings the holo/shimmer to life.

The first is a dark navy blue shimmer polish called Still Waters Run Deep.  The color is gorgeous and has the look of the moon on the water at night.

Lava Love is next up and it is a beautiful bronze-orange-burnt umber holo.  The holo is beautiful and caught the light wonderfully.

My favorite of the four is Dreamy Lilac.  A soft lavendar holo.  This color works in winter and spring!  (Not that I trend with seasons all that much.)

Lastly, there is Shattered, which is a holo infused glitter topper.  All the glitter is white and they come in fun shapes like diamonds, micro bars and shards.  I used it in the photos over a magenta undie.

Loves:  Charlie's Rad Lacquer combines fun colors with holo and shimmer for a great look and color palette.  The unique color selections for holos and shimmers is my favorite part.  Another awesome part of her polishes is that they are 5-free (so they don't contain 5 of the chemical nasties).
Wishes: I wish I could see her thought process!  The selection and testing of colors, must be fun!  I wouldn't change a thing!

Best news is that I ordered some extras and she threw in some more!  Winner will receive full size of 2 of the polishes reviewed in this blog (it will stay a surprise until you get them) and a few other treats.
