Happy Wednesday! My days are all mushing together right now for some reason. Today we are going to look at an upcoming collection from Anchor & Heart Lacquer, and it’s The Selenelion Collection!
A selenelion (pronounced like sel-in-nail-eon) is a type of eclipse where both a total lunar eclipse and the sun can be seen at the same time, thanks to the atmosphere’s tendency to bend light. The result is a dreamy illusion that both the sun and lunar eclipse are sharing the same sky. This collection is inspired by selected pieces from artist Andy Kehoe.
This collection will release on October 13th at noon EST and on the 13th and 14 there will be discounted pricing on both individual polishes as well as the full collection. On the 15th the pricing will bounce back to normal. Pricing and links will be outlined at the end of this post.
Let’s jump right in and take a look – each description will end with a link to the inspiration piece.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Lovers Eclipsed (Thermal)
Lovers Eclipsed is a black (cold) to clear (warm) crelly based thermal with pale pink shard glitter, as well as soft green to purple shimmer, holographic emerald green micro shreds and rose gold metallic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Due to the additions within the polish, my warm state never went fully clear and looked more like a dusty taupe shade.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Mourning Path
Mourning Path is a strong emerald to blue to purple multichrome with azure to emerald green shifting micro flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Nomad Sky
My favorite of the release… Nomad Sky! Nomad Sky is a clear base loaded with small and micro sized glitters in blue, aqua, green, neon pink, black, periwinkle, orange, red and grey, as well as holo micro flakes for added sparkle. I used 2 coats, glitter smoothing topper (Vapid Lacquer Smooth AF) and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Forever Selenelion
Forever Selenelion is a greyed out orange jelly base loaded with two different types of orange to pink shifting pigments, as well as peach to copper to gold to green micro flakes, and some black and garnet micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Guardian’s Moon
Guardian’s Moon is a muted teal blue linear holographic base with blue, turquoise, light red, and cherry red in a mix of small and medium sizes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Collision of Light
Collision of Light is a slightly dusty mint crelly base with pink to orange to green shifting shimmer, gold to pink to green iridescent flakes and small purple glitters in several shades. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer | The Selenelion Collection
My top picks from this collection are Nomad Sky, Collision of Light and Guardian’ Moon. I had no application issues with any of these shades.
