FUN Lacquer First Impressions

Recently due to my obsession with Simply Nailogical, I picked up a few shades from Live Love Polish. The website is full of cruelty-free, 3 and 5 free brands, and many shimmery and holographic shades, which I love. It is also full of smaller brands like FUN Lacquer which is the brand I was the most attracted to. To try out their line, I got a duo-chrome with holo glitter, a pure holo glitter and a linear holo topcoat. This brand is very holo heavy as you can tell.


Cheers to the Holidays (H) is a multichrome polish that shifts between some of my favourite colours: purple, blue, orange and red. I find it is mainly a red-purple on my nails but that holo really comes through. This polish is available without the holo glitter but I wanted to go all out. This is opaque in 2 coats and easy to apply.
Black Holo Witch is pure black holographic glitter in a clear base, meaning it isn’t one you simply paint on for it to be opaque. You can wear this over any polish for that extra sparkle or sponge it on for the full effect. This is sponged on. Like all glitter, it can be a pain to remove so use with caution. It is worth mentioning this was the chunkiest polish and doesn’t always apply smooth when simply painting it on.

Finally, Diamond is their original holographic top coat. It is one of the more subtle holos which is what I was going for because I want to be able to see the colour under the shade when I wear it. That being said, in the right lighting, it is that gorgeous linear rainbow that I was hoping for. It does slightly dull the colours underneath but it is worth it in the right lighting. I tried it over 2 different finishes and several different brands for comparison.
As far as application, these polishes are smooth and easy to apply for the most part. I love the brush and the formula works well. The one thing I was a little surprised in was how small the bottles were compared to OPI, for example. They are totally unique and something that isn’t available in-store which was my main draw. All of that being said, I would buy these again in a heartbeat!

Til next time, ttfn x
