Static Lacquer Nov. 2020 The Indie Lab Swatches and Review: Clockwork Angel

 *press sample*

Hi folks! Things have been quiet on my front, but things will be picking up again on the blog with the influx of winter/holiday shades being released in the near future. I've seen lots of upcoming Black Friday deals being promoted on social media, and I'm gonna do my best to be good this year. It's going to be a non-traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas for me; it's always been Thanksgiving with my family, and my husband's family for Christmas, and we will not be partaking in any get-togethers this year to keep everyone safe. I do hope you consider doing the same. This also means I'll be sitting at home shopping online which may be trouble. Tonight I have a shade from Static Lacquer for this month's The Indie Lab collaboration. This month's inspiration is Steampunk (!) and the store will be open from Nov. 21-26 so you still have a few days to decide what you will pick up. There are 18 different offerings this month, so do make sure to check them out. 

Static Lacquer Clockwork Angel (3 coats)
Inspiration: Cassandra Claire’s the Infernal Devices and Tessa Gray’s clockwork angel
Price: $12
Cap: No cap

I hope you're ready for some shifty goodness, because Stacy really brought it this month! Clockwork Angel is a blackened blue base with red/bronze/copper shift, holo pigment, gold shimmer and crystal flakies. This one looks like 3 polishes in 1 depending on the angle and lighting. I really don't think I have anything like it in my collection. I ended up using 3 thin coats for my photos, and it had a perfect formula. It dried with very minimal texture (just what you normally get with some flakies) and it was easy to remove. 

So what do you plan on picking up from the shop? I'll be back soon with a few more posts from some new and old favorites.
