CDB Lacquer Scattered Holo Thermal Rainbow Summer Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

I have a new to me indie on the blog today!  This is the CDB Lacquer’s Rainbow Thermal Summer collection with scattered holo.  There are 3 different versions of this set you can get.  Aside from the scattered holo version I am about to show you, there is also a regular line (no holo or glitter) and a glitter line, so you can get these hot thermals depending on your preference.

Raging Red

Raging Red is my favorite from this collection.  This goes from a neon pink leaning red to a watermelon pink with a subtle scattered holographic.  I used 2 coats and a top coat for these photos.

Below are photos from cold (red) to hot (pink)

Playful Purple is another favorite (I am a purple fiend!) and this goes from a purple to a neon violet and has a subtle scattered holo.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

As I said earlier in the post, this is the scattered holo version of the Thermal Rainbow collection.  If scattered holo isn’t your thing, you can also get these with glitters or regular with no holo or glitter added.

The scattered holo within each shade is subtle and doesn’t overpower the bright colors or the color shift, but still adds a slight element of sparkle to spice it up.  Application wise, these applied beautifully and dried down to a semi matte (typical with bright/neon shades).  I really liked that the thermal shifts still kept the polish within the same color family.  I own a lot of thermals and most shift from one color family to an entirely different color family.  Because these keep within the same color family from hot to cold they end up looking like a gradual and more natural gradient and it’s slightly subtle and eye catching.

Can you believe that I don’t own any thermals. They are just so cool! I like that these shift in the same color family, too — very minimalist gradient

Roselynn April 23, 2015 - 10:53 am

Gorgeous swatches! I definitely love the scattered holo variation, I’m swatching the creme versions of them now.

I usually like the thermals that dramatically change colors but I never thought of these close color changing thermals. I kind of like that. It’s like an easy gradient. What a great idea!

I like thermals and love them combined with a scattered holo :) These are cute!

Raging Red is adorable! I love that it is classic with a twist.

Very pretty! I love thermals, though I still don’t own any myself!

Although some transitions are not that pronounced, I love the colours and the fact it has scattered holo, so this collection is a WIN!
