Leesha's Lacquer OOAK of the Month Swatches and Review: Hypnotized

*press sample*

Leesha's Lacquer Hypnotized (2 coats)

Hi guys! I'm back again to show you a shade from Leesha's Lacquer that will be available tomorrow (Feb. 27th) at 6 PM CST in their website. This is a One of a Kind (OOAK) polish that will be made in a 16 oz batch and will be available in full-size bottles only for one time only. When they're gone, they're gone forever. Leesha's Lacquer is in the second year of this OOAK series and this month's polish is called Hypnotized. 

Hypnotized is a magnetic dark magenta base with a purple/gold/green shift. When the magnet is applied, the purple is pulled and and it darkens the base. The green and gold are most evident at extreme angles, while the magenta and purple are prominent straight on and in bright lighting. Even if you're not a huge fan of magnetic polishes, this one is still a beauty and you get that shift, just without the line. I used 2 coats for full opacity, and it applied easily. Here are my instructions on getting the best magnetic line on your polishes:

Yes, you will need a magnet to get the effect. If you don't have one, lots of brands or stockists carry them. For example, check out Lantern and Wren for a wide variety of types with good prices. To get the effect, I first applied my base coats and the first coat like normal. I then applied a thicker second coat to a single nail and quickly placed the magnet as close to my nail as possible for at least 45 seconds (or until my hand got tired) before moving on to the next nail. After all nails had 2 coats, I applied a quick-dry topcoat to each nail and placed the magnet over the nail again for about 15 seconds. It sounds like a long process, but it goes pretty fast once you get the hang of it. 

If you love this one as much as I do, stop by the Leesha's Lacquer website to pick it up for just $10. There will only be 32 bottles if this made, so don't dally. You can find out more about Leesha's Lacquer on their website, Facebook Group, and Instagram pages.
