Right on the Nail ~ Reverie Nail Lacquer Swatches and Reviews: Dog Days and Lily Pads

Reverie Nail Lacquer Dog Days (3 coats)

Review Nail Lacquer Lily Pads (3 coats)

Hello hello! Tonight I have a few swatches from one of my favorite indie brands called Reverie Nail Lacquer. If you are interested in buying any of the ones I'm showing you tonight, rest assured that Reverie is still around and will be back with some fall pretties in a few weeks.

I ended up buying 4 colors from their 4th of July sale and I pretty much love all of them. First I have Dog Days which is pale blue crelly with yellow and blue hexagonal glitters. Reverie is most known for their jellies with intense glitters, so Dog Days is a bit of a rarity. Since there is so much glitter in there, I had a bit of an issue with the application because it was extremely thick. I used some nail polish thinner (bought from Sally's Beauty Supply) and it was as good as new. I used 3 coats, and I would wait an extra couple of minutes between coats to make sure you don't get too much dragging of glitters.

I can only assume that the second color called Lily Pads was inspired by some of Monet's paintings (which are some of my favorites.) It's a blue/green jelly base with tons of hexagonal and circle glitter. Name a color and it's probably in here. The major glitter colors are blue and green with accents of orange, red, white and yellow. It's such a busy polish, but I love it! I can see how it may not be everyone's cup of tea, and I'm totally fine with that. The formula was also thick on this one, but not as much as Dog Days. You may still want to add a couple drops of thinner if the first nail gives you trouble.

I believe their polishes normal cost around $8 and you can find Reverie Nail Lacquer on their Etsy page, Instagram, and Facebook pages.
