Black Dahlia Lacquer is a mother-daughter created vegan and 5-free indie brand who got a ton of positive feedback right out of the gate when they launched recently. So, when I was recently asked if I’d be interested in taking a look at some of their newest polishes, I had to agree!
The Black Dahlia Lacquer Holiday trio is recently released in their shop and consists of three super sparkly microglitter shades- Texas Ice Flower, Vibrant Poinsettias and Silver Lotus.
|I’m not one to care about packaging usually but….HOW AWESOME IS THIS WRAPPING PAPER?!|
Black Dahlia Lacquer Texas Ice Flower is described as a pale turquoise shimmer with blue glass flecks, silver micro glitter and a mild linear holo finish. Two coats. The formula was wonderful, not too thick or thin and easy to apply.
|The bottle shot got kinda washed out, it’s not color accurate but you can see the pretty sparkles!|
Black Dahlia Lacquer Vibrant Poinsettia is described as a rich red shimmer with light and dark gold micro glitter, red glass flecks and the appearance of a scattered holo finish. Two coats. The formula was great, the perfect consistency and easy to control. This one was easily my favorite!
Black Dahlia Lacquer Silver Lotus is described as a shimmering silver micro glitter with a mild linear holo finish. Two coats. The formula was similar to the last two, not too thick or thin and went on very easily.
Black Dahlia Lacquer Sparklefest is described as a top coat filled with silver holographic glitter of different sizes in both squares and hexes and loaded with blue shimmer, allowing it to provide a different look based on the base coat color choice. One coat over Zoya Pinta. The formula was good, a little on the thick side but not gloopy and still very easy to apply.
Overall, I think this is a wonderful set of polishes! Wintery with a twist, I can definitely see myself wearing these again and do highly recommend this brand. The only thing I didn’t love about the brand (and this is 100% a personal thing, I know many people who love it) was the bottles for two reasons. One, although they aren’t so tall that they don’t fit in a helmer drawer, they get knocked over/fall every time I close it so I have to basically store them laying down which I don’t like doing for space reasons. Second, the brush handle is also pretty long so you have to take care to make sure all of the polish has fully dripped down off of it before wiping the excess off on the bottle opening (I like doing thin coats and I have short nails so I almost always do this), otherwise you risk a random lava flow of polish onto the brush while you’re painting. Minor gripes, everything else was top notch and impressive. Again, this collection is already available in their shop to purchase, so head on over if you want to grab any of these up!
What do you think of this collection? Which shade is your favorite? Have you tried out any polishes from this brand yet? Let me know in the comments!
