LAV Lacquer - Swatches and Review

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I recently received polishes for review from a new indie polish brand, LAV Lacquers.  I was excited to try these polishes because they looked so beautiful and they did not disappoint when I wore them.

First up is Princess Diaries.


How pretty is this polish?!!!!  Princess Diaries is described as being full of tiny DEEP PURPLE hexes and both micro NEON PINK HEXES against a very light pink opaque base.  As Dij states, it's such a girly girl polish.  I was so in love with this that I didn't want to take it off.  

The formula for Princess Diaries was really good.  It applied really well and gave really good glitter coverage.  The larger glitters did settle though, so it was tough to get them on the brush.  I only got one on my index finger.  I used three coats and there was still a bit of VNL, but I didn't mind it at all.  For my base I used Rejuvacote and I used Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Next is Pick Me Up At 8.


Pick Me Up At 8 is from the 'Play on our PURPLE' collection and is a glitter nail polish packed with micro hexes of purple and a wee bit of pink hexes against a slight lavender base.  It's such a pretty polish and has an awesome formula.  It applied so easily and evenly and was opaque in two coats.  There was great glitter coverage with each coat.  Here I used two coats with no base or top coat.

This is another polish that is right up my alley.  Super girly and pretty!

Finally is Avenue O.


Avenue O has specs of awesome bright colors including bright NEON GREEN and NEON PINK hexes along with mini neon yellow, neon pink and neon green hexes all against a gorgeous bright orange base color.  The formula for Avenue O is really good also.  It requires two to three coats depending on how thin you apply the polish .  I used thicker coats on my index and it was fully opaque in two coats, but I used thinner coats on the others and saw a slight bit of VNL.  Here I used Rejuvacote as a base, two coats of Avenue O, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

I was very impressed with these polishes.  They were super pretty and applied really well.  LAV Lacquer has some really pretty polishes in their etsy store, so you should definitely check it out here.  Full size bottles are $8.75 and minis are $4.25.

What do you guys think of these polishes?  Do you have any favorites?
