Each month Aliquid Lacquer releases a new polish inspired by Roman holidays for the When In Rome collection and some of my very favorite polishes from her have been these monthly releases, so I’m always excited to see the latest one.
Aliquid Lacquer Neptunalia is described as a cerulean polish with gold-green-blue shifting shimmer and copper flecks. I used two coats along with Out The Door top coat. The formula was wonderful, smooth and easy to apply with the perfect consistency. Here’s some information from the maker about the inspiration:
In the heat of midsummer, the Romans thought it would be wise to keep the aquatic gods happy in order to prevent a drought. On July 23 they celebrated Neptune, the patron of fresh and salt water. The details of the festival aren’t well known, but we know they sacrificed bulls and had parties and picnics in the countryside, building huts out of branches for shade. Neptunalia was considered a lucky day to start an irrigation project.
Overall, I am totally in love with this shade which probably surprises no one. This is already available in her shop if you’d like to pick it up for yourself!
What do you think of this shade? Have you tried out any of the past When In Rome releases? Let me know in the comments!
