I have a brand new maker to share on my blog today, Lurid Lacquer is releasing their Thistle and Thorn Collection tomorrow (1/26) and we’re gonna take a look!

If you would like to see this collection swatched – check out my YouTube channel below:

As I mentioned – this is the first release for Lurid Lacquer and it’s been a long time in the making. I was fully planning on buying this collection, but when the offer came to swatch it – I couldn’t resist.

The formula for these shades are all very easy to work with and smooth. I reached near opacity or full opacity in 3 thin coats. I do use Apres Gel X nails with no blurring type base coat – so you can see in my clear tips how opaque shades are.

I do have the next 2 releases in my possession already as well – and all I can say is… this is a brand you’ll want to watch for. Right now they do not have a Facebook Fan Page – so you’ll want to check them out on Instagram to see more swatches (they are very active on there) and future releases.

Okay lets jump in. These do release tomorrow (1/26) at 6pm CST. Things may sell out, but they do plan on restocking in the future.

Lurid Lacquer | Thistle and Thorn

Thistle and Thorn is a cool, medium, dusty turquoise jelly base loaded with a fine purple to pink shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Nettle and Briar

Nettle and Briar is a seafoam green crelly base loaded with a fine pink to orange to gold shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Quiet

Quiet is a soft dove grey crelly base loaded with a fine purple to pink to red shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Unyielding

Unyielding is a cool toned, medium lavender crelly base with a fine purple to pink shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Indomitable

Indomitable is a warm, violet leaning purple jelly base loaded with a fine, vibrant purple to pink to red shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This one made my camera flip out a bit.

I did get mild staining on my gel x nails on removal, but it was a very faint tint.

Lurid Lacquer | Through Drought and Abundance

Through Drought and Abundance is a soft, taupe-ish grey crelly base with pink to orange to gold to green shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Reaching Skyward As You Root

Reaching Skyward as You Root is a cool toned brown jelly base packed with strong green to blue shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | Only Fools Fail To Admire

Only Fools Fail To Admire is a soft pale pink jelly base loaded with strong pink to orange to gold shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The shimmer in this one is much bolder than my photos show.

Lurid Lacquer | The Wisdom of Your Armor

The Wisdom Of Your Armor is a dusty rose jelly base loaded with green to blue aurora micro flake shimmer and bronze reflective glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Despite having reflective glitters – this was a fairly smooth application and I personally did not feel the need for a smoothing topper. Top coat eliminated any mild texture there was.

Lurid Lacquer | You Survived

You Survived is a bright, medium green jelly base loaded with green to blue aurora micro flake and bronze light reflective glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lurid Lacquer | O, Dauntless, Guarded Beauty

O, Dauntless, Guarded Beauty is a clear base loaded with green to purple iridescent flakes, as well as purple reflective glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This can also be used as a topper due to the clear base.

Lurid Lacquer | Now Thrive

Now Thrive is a teal jelly base loaded with green to blue to purple to pink iridescent flakes, micro holo flakes and a light sprinkle of scattered holo. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade is a bit greener in person.

Lurid Lacquer | Thistle and Thorn Collection

I am very impressed with the formula and application and overall performance for this collection.

My top picks are: Indomitable, Quiet, The Wisdom Of Your Armor, and Thistle and Thorn.
