Yume Lacquer Sailor Moon Inspired Collection Sample Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
Today I have a new (to me) indie brand that has an entire collection based on Sailor Moon.  The brand is called Yume Lacquer.  The Sailor Moon Collection contains 10 colors, today I'll be sharing 3.  Be sure to check out her store to see the other colors as well.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Courageous Thunder, which is an emerald green creme with light pink micro glitter.  This polish is really pretty and sparkled under the simulated sunlight.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Next is my favorite, Rainbow Heart.  Rainbow Heart is a light pink polish with a ton of iridescent glitter and gold shimmer.  In the filtered light the iridescent glitter popped and in the simulated sunlight the golden shimmer shined bright!  Photos show 3 coats for total opacity with a shiny top coat.

Last is Turbulent Space, a navy blue polish.  Turbulent Space needs 2 coats for total opacity as it is on the inky side and does contain some textural pigments for those who love texture.  Photos show 2 coats with 2 coats of shiny top coat.  *Highly recommend a 2 base coats to prevent staining AND cleaning up any skin as soon as possible if there is contact made with the polish!

Loves:  I really enjoyed the surprise of pink micro glitter in Courageous Thunder and the golden shimmer in Rainbow Heart.  The three colors were beautiful and fun.  I also love that all Yume Lacquer is 5-free, so they don't contain any of the 5 nasties that can be found in polish.

Wishes: I wish the texture in Turbulent Space was a little more easier to work with, I struggled to get a uniform texture look.  Amanda, the owner is going to work on the formula to try to get it more uniform!  It is always wonderful to see indie brands take feedback and run with it. :)
