Lemming Lacquer Curiosities From Wonderland Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Today I have a new-to-me indie to show you!  This is Lemming Lacquer’s Curiosities From Wonderland collection which is inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the various books, movies, video games, and other media inspired by Lewis Carroll’s characters and fantastical world.

This is a 7 piece collection that features a glittery top coat, 3 jelly glitter shades, 2 holographic shades and one thermal – so there is a nice mix for all sorts of preferences.

Make sure you read through to the bottom!  Lemming Lacquer has a Memorial Day sale going until tomorrow night (5/25)!

Curiouser and Curiouser!

Curiouser and Curiouser

Curiouser and Curiouser! is a delicate pale sky blue holographic with gold shimmer.  This shade was inspired by Alice’s iconic dress.

I used 2 coats for these photos.

Whooo R U?

Whoo R U

Whooo R U? is a smoky, duochrome gray holographic polish with pinkish purple hazy overtones and bright blue sparks of shimmer.  This is SO perfect to represent Caterpillar!  In Lemming Lacquer’s words – This polish embodies the Caterpillar’s languid smugness and captures the image of him taking long, cloudy drags off his hookah.

I used 2 coats for these photos.

This was a fabulous collection and I loved each polishes inspiration and found the polishes to fit the descriptions.  I was incredibly impressed that all 3 jelly based glitter shades were completely opaque in just 2 coats.  They were still squishy and jelly like, but the pigmentation was fabulous and gave full coverage in 2 super easy coats.

My favorites were the 2 holographic shades of the collection, Curiouser & Curiouser! and Whooo R U?

There are a few I like quite a bit in here! I am of course drawn to Curiouser and Curiouser.

Viktoria May 25, 2015 - 12:14 pm

These bottles!! They made my heart melt.
And what a nice touch – on each label the lemming hugs a miniature bottle of the respective polish :)
I couldn’t resist, I went straight to the site and bought both holos.
A great collection to start with! I wish them success and I’ll definitely keep my eye on them.

I love I’m Not All There. I have a similar one from Jindie Nails and Different Dimension but neither are thermal which is why this one is awesome!! This brand is also new to me. Thanks for sharing

I already picked up the two holos when she launched! I had been eyeing her swatches on IG for some time and was excited when she released them.

Wow, such gorgeous polishes. Your swatches make me wanna buy all of them.

Simona May 26, 2015 - 10:18 am

I definitely agree with you: both holos are super pretty!

This collection looks pretty solid! While they don’t look terribly unique compared to all the indies out there, the quality seems good and I like the versatility within the set. Like you said, something for everyone’s taste!

I swatched this collection a few months ago and it was so memorable to me. Gorgeous shades all around.
