SuperChic Lacquer Diamond Heist Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Tonight I have the newest collection from SuperChic Lacquer – the Diamond Heist Collection!  This is an interesting collection of 5 texture shades that can be layered alone or over another shade.  In this post I decided to layer it over a similar base color, but if you check out Love for Lacquer’s review, you can see it layered on it’s own.

All 5 shades in the collection are certified to contain 1 carat weight of genuine natural diamond crystals.

I’m going to start this off by saying that if you aren’t into textures, these may not be for you.  I personally love textures and I like the concept of the Diamond Heist collection.  I can layer each shade over a similar creme shade for an instant, mild texture or I can layer it on it’s own for a much more pronounced texture.

Let’s take a look

Flawless

Flawless

Flawless is a pure white diamond crusted, textured micro glitter in a clear base mixed in with 1 carat total weight of natural diamond crystals and accents of silver shimmer and subtle sparks of holo.  I used 1 coat of Flawless over Nicole by OPI Yoga-Then-Yogurt.

As you can see from the photos, 1 coat added quite a bit of texture.

Priceless

Priceless

Priceless is a black diamond, highly textured micro glitter in a clear base embellished with 1 carat total weight of genuine natural diamond, silver shimmer and subtle sparks of holo.  I used 1 coat over Sinful Colors Black on Black.  Of the 5, I found Priceless to have the most texture.

As soon as I saw the name of this one, I got the song Fancy stuck in my head…

Fancy is a pale pink diamond crusted, highly textured micro glitter in a clear base, embellished with 1 carat total weight of genuine natural diamond crystals, silver shimmer and subtle sparks of holo.  I used 1 coat of Fancy over Nicole by OPI At Least I Pink So.

This was my second favorite in the collection and one I will wear again.  I like the color and the texture over a creme base was perfect for my tastes.

Precious is a sultry blue diamond crusted, highly textured micro glitter formulation in a clear base, embellished with 1 carat total weight of genuine natural diamond crystals, silver shimmer and subtle sparks of holo.  I used 1 coat of Precious over Nicole by OPI Live In The Momentum.

I saved my favorite for last.  Rarity is a sweetheart red diamond crusted, highly textured micro glitter in a clear base with 1 carat total weight of genuine natural diamond crystals, silver shimmer and subtle sparks of holo.

I used 1 coat of rarity over Sinful Colors GoGo Girl.  Of the 5 this has a much lighter texture in 1 coat.

Overview

Like most texture shades, not everyone is going to love them.  I personally like them layered over a similar color so I get a textured effect without feeling it’s too much.  Application is a little tricky and when layering on it’s own you have to do it just right so you don’t get glitter build up and make it overly textured.  As I said, for my preference, I liked 1 coat over a base and no top coat (I like the more matte texture look).  If you want the look without the texture, Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat (also found in the SuperChic Lacquer shop!) works well to smooth out the texture in 1-2 coats.

If texture really isn’t for you, I still suggest heading to the SuperChic Lacquer shop and checking out her past creations – the Frozen & Flurrious collection is still my favorite that she’s done.

Like these better as a top coat, you paired them so nicely with a base!

I’m still on the fence about these but I am a huge texture fan. I might need to try them for myself.

You did a great job with choosing your bases here! I don’t know how you do it because I’m always horrible at matching colors haha!

Great idea layering these! I’m going to do that when I swatch them :)

Hmm, seeing them layered I can now definitely say these aren’t working for me. But, you captured them very well, the texture is even visible on the lightest shade!

After seeing them both ways, I definitely think I prefer them over a base like this. I still like the way the blue looks, but I still don’t think they are for me overall. I love your macros, they look great!

These are so not my taste :(

I like texture but unfortunately these are nowhere near glittery enough for me.

These are so odd but somehow still interesting. They look fab on you.

Cool! I just saw the other swatches and it is good to see the difference between layering or not! I would love to try these polishes.

This collection isn’t quite my cup of tea, but the polishes do look better over a similar color base like you did. Great pics!
