Lacquer Lust Velvet Rope, Pining Over You, Chiffon and I’ve Been A Good Unicorn Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Nothing To Disclose

I was sitting at work the other day when a package arrived.  I’ve been on a no buy for the most part, and I wasn’t expecting anything from this particular indie, so I was rather surprised to see this gift arrive!

I received Lacquer Lust Velvet Rope, Pining Over You, Chiffon and I’ve Been a Good Unicorn, plus a few other goodies you’ll see in an upcoming post.  I put Chiffon on first and thought “Oh, this is DEFINITELY going on the blog!!”

Velvet Rope, Chiffon & Pining Over You are matte shades, but for the none matte lovers, I top coated them (and they look pretty darn good that way too!) and I’ve Been A Good Unicorn will be a Limited Edition release for December.



Before I start, take a moment to really look at how smooth and brush stroke free this shade is… it has no issues at all and hugs the nail perfectly.

Chiffon is the unexpected favorite.  This is a pale ivory with incredibly delicate and subtle shimmer that flashes blue and pink.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

This is a favorite for a few reasons.  1 – look at it.  2 –  perfect nail art base and 3 – look at it again.

This is in it’s intended state, but underneath there will be top coated photos.

It looks just as good with top coat.  I think I found my HG nude polish.

Next we have Velvet Rope which has the same flawless application.  This is a shimmery red matte shade and I used 2 coats for these photos.

Pining Over You is the final matte shade in this post.  This is a dark forest green shimmery matte.  Again, flawless and absolute perfection.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

I’ve Been A Good Unicorn

I've Been A Good Unicorn

I’ve Been A Good Unicorn is a Limited Edition polish for December.

This is a clear base packed with holographic silver micro glitter and small red and green glitters mixed in.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

This was an unexpected, but very appreciated gift.  The mattes are just… phenomenal!  Application wise, perfection.  I’m still stuck on the whole no brushstrokes thing, plus they self level incredibly well.  On top of that, they don’t dry super fast, so you have time to apply it without rushing.  I’ve Been A Good Unicorn is sparkly and beautiful as well, and I love that it’s so perfect for Christmas.

I definitely need to pick up more mattes though when this no buy is over!

Price: $9.00 for Mattes – I’m not entirely sure what the LE December shade will be

Where To Buy: Lacquer Lust Shop

If you haven’t tried Lacquer Lust yet, I would recommend doing so.  I remember trying to buy the Gemstone holos but they sold out before I could and now I regret not going back and checking religiously for them.

I do have one more Lacquer Lust to show tomorrow, and it’s part of the indie collaboration they did with Polished by KPT and Serum No 5.

Fabulous review!! I was so excited about Chiffon, I clicked the link and it’s sold out. :( I’ll have to keep an eye out for it!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:56 pm

Thank you!! Chiffon restocked yesterday!

Deborah November 30, 2014 - 3:33 am

Red and green mattes will always make my heart beat faster, but I totally get the love for Chiffon. It’s so ethereal!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:57 pm

All 3 are gorgeous, but Chiffon is so different from other things I own!

Lara Leaf November 30, 2014 - 4:15 am

I went weak at the knees when I saw Chiffon! What a sweet beauty! And the red and green polishes are gorgeous also. And I think I’ve been a good gal so… that glitter!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:57 pm

Me too! In the bottle I was like “eh, ok” then I put it on and didn’t want to take it off!

The Dalai Lama's Nails November 30, 2014 - 7:03 am

I’m loving Chiffon – it’s a really lovely neutral. What a nice gift!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:57 pm

It really is! Thank you!

Jessica November 30, 2014 - 11:11 am

Chiffon is amazing. I love a good, interesting nude polish and this fits the bill perfectly.

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:58 pm

Most nudes are just ok on me, so I was incredibly surprised at how nice this one was on!

Katherine November 30, 2014 - 5:01 pm

These are all gorgeous but I’ve been mooning over Chiffon since I saw you post it on instagram (at least I think that’s where I saw it). DEFINITELY going on my must-buy list!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:58 pm

Yes I posted it on IG before this went up! Its a must have!

Jess Scull November 30, 2014 - 5:07 pm

They really are!

Marisa - Hey, Darling Polish November 30, 2014 - 8:19 pm

Wow, these are incredible! Chiffon looks amazing!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:59 pm

They are all gorgeous, but Chiffon takes the cake!

Andrea November 30, 2014 - 10:30 pm

Chiffon is perfect on you! I love it, but I have a feeling it wouldn’t look great on my skin tone. I love I’ve Been a Good Unicorn as well!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 7:59 pm

Aww, you never know! I’ve Been A Good Unicorn is a great holiday polish!

Lothwen December 1, 2014 - 3:18 pm

Wow, I’m super impressed by these! Chiffon is gorgeous when matte and Unicorn is soooo fun! The other ones are as good as the Zoyas! Impressive.

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 8:00 pm

They are as good as the Zoyas and the application is just perfection!

Jenny Gilmore December 1, 2014 - 3:31 pm

These look completely fabulous! You are right, Chiffon is superb! <3

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 8:00 pm

Chiffon still has my heart! Wearing it again now!

kelliegonzo December 1, 2014 - 7:45 pm

Chiffon is INCREDIBLE! I definitely need to pick it up.

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 8:01 pm

It’s a must have! And I RARELY say that about a nude shade!

Laura MyNewestAddiction December 2, 2014 - 7:55 pm

I am drawn to Chiffon!

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 8:01 pm

I put it back on! It’s so soft and gorgeous!

Phyrra December 2, 2014 - 8:10 pm

I like Chiffon! The Unicorn one is cute too.

Lisa Heath December 2, 2014 - 8:11 pm

Chiffon is definitely my favorite and Unicorn is unique to my collection, so I love that one as well!

Allison @Never Say Die Beauty December 2, 2014 - 8:26 pm

I find myself strangely drawn to Chiffon. it’s one of the most amazing but odd nudes I’ve ever seen. Love it! And I love the unicorn polish too. So festive!

Justina December 2, 2014 - 9:42 pm

Wow, Chiffon is really gorgeous!

Erika December 2, 2014 - 9:46 pm

These are so beautiful! I’ve Been a Good Unicorn! LOVE!

Miranda | Slashed Beauty December 2, 2014 - 9:56 pm

Honestly Chiffon is my fave. I love clean looking nails

Kath TheFabZilla December 2, 2014 - 10:13 pm

I agree, the mattes look fantabulous, most esp chiffon!

Sheila December 2, 2014 - 10:53 pm

Chiffon is incredible.

Nidia - Lit From Within December 2, 2014 - 11:06 pm

There must be something wrong with me. Chiffon looks like base coat ridge filler to me, especially matte. Lol

Lisa Heath December 3, 2014 - 10:07 am

It’s not going to be for everyone. I have no ridge fillers that look like this though.

Eugenia December 3, 2014 - 1:16 am

I NEED the glitter one now!!

Aleya Bamdad December 3, 2014 - 5:02 am

I like velvet rope the most.

Ashley December 3, 2014 - 7:45 am

I have to agree with you Chiffon is a definite favorite of mine too.

Cindy (Prime Beauty) December 3, 2014 - 11:43 am

Love the glitter one and prefer them all with a top coat-what can I say? I’m an old lady!

StephanieLouise December 3, 2014 - 2:51 pm

Chiffon isn’t normally a me shade…but I love it!

Jess Scull December 3, 2014 - 4:16 pm

These are SO pretty!! great swatches

Betzy Carmona December 3, 2014 - 4:35 pm

Those are all nice colors

Destany December 3, 2014 - 5:59 pm

Chiffon is one of the most unique polishes I’ve ever seen! Excellent swatches – that red looks divine on you :)

Honeygirlk December 3, 2014 - 11:08 pm

Oh chiffon is surely my favorite. I usually have a hard time with shades like that because even with a base coat, it will show all of my ridges in my nail bed. This is nice.

Brooke @ Blushing Noir December 4, 2014 - 5:57 am

Chiffon with the top coat just made my heart stop =O
