Guess what launches tomorrow? The Ethereal Lacquer The Frost Collection!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I started a new job and I’m on week 2. It’s WAY different than my previous job (I went from administrative assistant in an accounting firm for almost 20 years to patient coordinator in a stem cell regenerative therapy facility) and so far while it’s been busy and all new for me – it’s been a good change. 2020 has had ups and downs, but overall it was a good year for our family. Moving to Massachusetts due to Nick’s job, Jacob is getting a better education at the schools out here (and taking Game Design as an elective!) and I made a job change as well. 2020 has been full of surprises. We are still pretty much practicing quarantine like stuff, aside from me going to work – and my work has the policy that we mask up at all times and stay 6 ft away… so they are actually pretty safe as well. Jacob has adapted well to the move, as well as this whole distance learning schtick for school.
Anyways, now let’s move onto why we’re here – Ethereal Lacquer The Frost Collection! For each series of photos – I do show each polish glossy and matte. If they are sheer enough to function as a topper, I show that too.
This is a 7 piece Winter collection with shimmers, flakes and shifts… oh my! Let’s take a look.
Ethereal Lacquer | Everfrost
Everfrost is a sheer, cool toned green jelly base loaded with red to pink to copper to green iridescent shifting flakes, holographic micro flakes and copper to green shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats on it’s own, and 1 coat over a black creme for these photos.
I do enjoy this polish on it’s own, but wanted to show it as a topper as well. Dries down with a very mild texture – but should only need 1 coat of top coat to smooth.
Ethereal Lacquer | Frosted Bauble
Frosted Bauble is the newest Bauble in the series and this one is a sheer, icy blue grey topper with red to copper to green colorshifting shimmer and holo flakes ranging from micro to medium sizes. I used 3 thin coats alone and 1 coat over black for these photos.
This Bauble is in my top 3.
Ethereal Lacquer | Frozé
Frozé is a semi sheer, pale rosy pink jelly base with red to copper to green shifting shimmer and medium sized silver holo flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I really enjoy this polish, however – it does give me a slight touch of the lobster hands due to my cooler toned skin. It is still beautifully done, but in the future I will most likely layer this over another polish to balance out the warmth and make it slightly more wearable for me.
Ethereal Lacquer | Nightfrost
Nightfrost is a deep midnight navy blue crelly base loaded with red to gold to green multichrome shimmer and medium holographic silver flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This polish matte is amazing.
Ethereal Lacquer | Plumfrost
Plumfrost is a deep jewel toned violet jelly base with strong pink to orange shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat.
This is another incredible shade with a matte top coat.
Ethereal Lacquer | Skyfrost
Skyfrost might be my favorite of this release. This is a cool, sheer raspberry pink base with red to pink to copper to green iridescent shifting flakes, holographic flecks, and red to copper to green shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
While this is my favorite polish, it was the thickest to apply. It wasn’t overly difficult, but the flake content down make it thicker in application. Depending on your preference, I would recommend a couple drops of thinner if needed.
It does dry down with a mild texture, but you should only need 1 coat of top coat for a smooth finish.
Ethereal Lacquer | Snowfrost
Snowfrost is a sheer, pale ivory base with turquoise to purple shifting shimmer, as well as green to aqua to violet to blue shifting flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Now first off – when used alone, this type of shade always looks dingy on me in photos. It is not like that in person. The pale ivory base is honestly not that noticeable and applies clearer since it’s so sheer. I much prefer this as a topper though and it’s glorious over black.
Shown below in 3 thin coats as well as 1 coat over black.
Ethereal Lacquer | The Frost Collection
This is a beautifully done collection and has some clear winners in it. Among my top picks are Plumfrost, Frosted Bauble and Skyfrost.
Application was decent with all of them, the ones I showed over black are the sheerest of the 7 and can double as a topper or be worn alone.
All 7 shades will be available tomorrow, and you’ll also be able to purchase mystery bags (one per person) as well as an iridescent Ethereal mug!
