Initial Lacquer Spring 2014 Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Initial Lacquer has released her Spring 2014 Collection, and I have all 7 shades on the blog tonight to show you!

Once again Initial Lacquer created some shades that are unique to my collection and are so perfect for Spring!

Take a look!

Above The Clouds

Above The Clouds

Above the Clouds is a light grey base with fine aqua shimmer and a touch of fine holographic shimmer.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Last Day Of Winter

Last Day Of Winter

Last Day of Winter freaked my camera out!  It’s actually a touch lighter in person than I could pick up.  Last Day of Winter is a light to medium periwinkle base with gray, white and silver holographic glitter.  The medium circle glitters were a little chunky in the base, but were smoother than the photos look.  I used 2 coats and glossy top coat for this photo.

Circle Of Love

Circle of Love

Circle of Love was one of my favorites of the collection.  This is a pale pink crelly base with pink, lavender and white glitters mixed in.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Love Me Some S’mores

Love Me Some Smores

Love Me Some S’mores was the only polish I had an issue with.  This is a chocolate brown crelly base with tons of red, gold and silver holographic glitter mixed in.  The base was a little thick and the glitters clumped a bit which made it lumpy.  I used 2 thin coats for these photos.

Lucky Me!

Lucky Me

Lucky Me! is a mint crelly base with matte yellow, white and purple glitters mixed in.  I love this shade!  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.

Radiant is a glitter top coat that has purple, blue, pink and silver holographic glitters mixed into a clear base.  I used 1 coat (yes, it had THAT much glitter!) over Above The Clouds.

Viola is a purple jelly base jam PACKED with glitter.  Viola has purple, blue, pink and silver hex glitters and is a bit bumpy.  It wasn’t as thick as I thought it would be to apply, but take your time.  With all the glitter it will lump up a bit.  I only used 1 coat of top coat, but 2 would completely smooth it out.  I used 2 coats of Viola for these photos.

Overall, this is a cute Spring collection.  I had some favorites, but I also had some issues.  Love Me Some S’mores was thick and difficult to work with and Viola wasn’t as difficult, but all the glitter gave it a slightly lumpy appearance.  The other 5 were really pretty and easy to work with though.

Price: $9.00 Each

While I did have some slight issues, Above the Clouds, Lucky Me! and Circle of Love are my favorites of the collection.  I did have mini bottles of these shades, which sometimes does make them harder to work with (more glitter in less base at times due to the small bottles).  But Initial Lacquer is still making some shades that are unique combinations to my collection.
