Right on the Nail ~ Reverie Nail Lacquer Swatches and Reviews: Open Water and Rosebud

Reverie Nail Lacquer Open Water (3 coats)

Reverie Nail Lacquer Rosebud (3 coats)

Who's ready for a long weekend? This gal! Things have been pretty crazy at work lately (but when isn't it?) so I'm ready for an extra day off. Be on the lookout this weekend for some great Labor Day sales!

Tonight I have the final 2 colors I bought from Reverie Nail Lacquer. Being a scientist, I've been fortunate enough to visit some awesome places. I just so happened to visit parts of the ocean that aren't often explored (I crossed the equator on at boat!) and got to see some true open water, and it is as brilliant as you'd imagine. The polish Open Water captures this perfectly with this sheer jelly color packed with circular and hexagonal glitter. The hints of red and yellow glitter are great pops of color as well. Being a jelly it is sheer, but the glitter helps cover any visible nail line that remains after 3 coats. I found that this one had the best formula of the 4. 

And finally, we have Rosebud which is so complex. I usually try and take a stab at describing polishes, but I think Reverie said it best by stating that it's a "ruby jelly base loaded with shimmer, flakies, microglitters, and tons of red and pastel mint, pink, orange, and yellow glitters in hex and circle shapes." Whew! Get all that? It's beautiful, but also the biggest pain to apply. I would recommend some polish thinner and extra time between coats. Photo show 3 coats.

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