Firecracker Lacquer Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutaions,

*Press Sample*
Today I am sharing a new-to-me indie brand called Firecracker Lacquer.  Kendahl, the owner of Firecracker Lacquer, has released 5 collections and sent me 3 polishes to swatch and review from two of the collections.  She also carries nail studs in her store, to add a little pizzazz to your mani.  Firecracker Lacquer is 5-free so it doesn't contain 5 of the harsh chemicals that can be found in polish.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough, which is part of the Meet Your Maker Collection.  This polish is a multi-chrome that shifts from purple-blue to orange-red depending on what is placed under it.  It applied easily and looks gorgeous over a dark color and soft and delicate on it's own (see my instagram page for photos with no undie @beginnails).  Photos show 2 coats over Drip Drop Nail Paint's Yoga Pants (black) topped with shiny top coat.  

Next is Flamingo Fanfare, part of the Captivating Creatures Collection.  Flamingo Fanfare is a bright pink almost neon holographic polish.  Formula was smooth and applied perfectly.  This polish is perfect for spring.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

The last polish I have to share today is a glitter jelly called Punked, which is also part of the Meet Your Maker Collection.  Punked is a black jelly that contains magenta, purple, teal and silver holographic hexes in 2 sizes.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat (1st and 2nd photos) and O.P.I. Matte Top Coat (3rd and 4th photos).

Loves:  I love the formulas on all the different finishes that Firecracker Lacquer sent me.  They are creamy and apply like a dream.  I also love the versatility of the multi-chrome since it can be used on it's own with 3 coats or over a dark color.  If I had to pick a favorite of the 3, I would go with Flamingo Fanfare.  It's perfect for spring, with it's bright uplifting pink sparkle!  And the added plus of Firecracker Lacquer's is that their products are 5-free so they don't contain 5 of the harsh chemicals that can be found in polish.

Wishes:  These 3 that I tried were amazing.  I wouldn't change anything about them.  Now I want some more of the Captivating Creatures collection!  There are some really fun bright colors that make me ready for spring!
