Doctor Lacquer Swatches and Nail Art!

I was given a discount off my order by Doctor Lacquer so that I could try some of her polishes! I picked three different finishes so I could test out how each one acts – A duochrome, a holo, and a jelly. The package was shipped quickly each polish came in this adorable little bag that coordinated with the color of the polish! Too cute!

Doctor Lacquer Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a light green holo.  I did three coats for this mani.

Doctor Lacquer Annatte

Annatte is a hot pink jelly! I did three coats for this swatch. Visible Nail Line (VNL) is typical of all jelly polishes. If you don’t like VNL then jellies are not for you. I love the look of a nice squishy jelly. Also, this one will be great for some lead lighting art since I don’t have any jellies like this one!

Jelly sandwich mani’s are one of my favorite easy styles of nail art. Annatte was just screaming for some silver glitters! I applied some Vivid Lacquer Wish Upon a Star, then another coat of Annatte, then more Wish Upon a Star, and then China Glaze Fairy Dust. And then finally a top coat! Phew! That was a lot of layers!

Doctor Lacquer The Dance of the Spirits

Dance of the Spirits is a green to purple duochrome. I did three coats for these pictures. It went on very smoothly and has a prominent shift. Straight on, it looks all green and then as you move to the side, it transitions to all purple.

Lately I’ve been on a kick where I just love stamping black over duochrome polishes. So of course I had to do it for this one also! I used Konad black and a design from Cici&Sisi. I love the look of how this turned out. It’s got a very gothic, yet feminine feel to it.
