Glam Paint Lacquer Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
Today I'm sharing several polishes from Glam Paint Lacquer.  Glam Paint Lacquer relaunched this year with focus on thermal polishes.  I was sent 2 holographic glitter thermals, a creme thermal and also a glitter topper.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Ex-tacy, a jelly holographic thermal that is described as changing from black to a soft lime green.  For me, this thermal was very sensitive, so it created a natural gradient.  I was able to get 3 colors, black - brown - tan, with the darker colors peeking out when colder, while lighter colors appear with warmth.  Ex-tacy has great formula and applied easily.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Next is Mad Crush, a deep black-purple to purple holographic thermal.  Mad Crush was also sensitive and required no extra cold or warmth to show the color change.  The darker color shows when in contact with cold, while warmth shows the purple.  This polish did have a few pigment clumps, but overall didn't impact application.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

I was also sent a topper called V.I.P.  V.I.P. can be worn over any color to give it a new look.  It contains golden and green iridescent micro glitters to give dark colors a pop or can be worn over lighter colors for a subtle sparkle.  Photos show 2 coats over Rimmel Black Satin with shiny top coat.

The last polish I have to share is Ocean Drive, a blue grey to tan subtle thermal.  Ocean Drive is creme based and had great easy to apply formula.  It was difficult to capture the color change in this polish.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Shiny Top Coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from

Loves: I love when thermals are combined with glitter and the use of holographic glitter creates a beautiful look.  I was really impressed with Ex-tacy and Mad Crush and the sensitivity of the thermal change.

Wishes: I wish to see more holographic thermals like Ex-tacy and Mad Crush in colors like pink, red and yellow!
