Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"Beyond The Veil"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Lindsey Stirling, specifically inspired this month by the song "Beyond the Veil."

Description: "Beyond The Veil" a soft milky white full of holographic flakes, iridescent shifting flakes, chrome shifting flakes, and rainbow iridescent shifting glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: This glitzy polish has a lot going on, but in all the right ways! The sparkling dense crushed holo flake is mesmerizing. Application was very easy. It dries quickly with a textured finish. A gloss top coat really sets it off.

Heather's Hues

"Everybody Breaks"

Price: $13.00 | 80 Cap

Theme/Fandom: A Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by a photo of Nick and Offred.

Description: "Everybody Breaks" is a black to red multichrome filled with a red-gold-silver magnetic multichrome and an kiss of holo sparkle. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Also shown unmagnetized as a single finger swatch in 2 coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful use of the new black to red pigment! Application was very easy and controlled. The magnetic pigment is dense, so the effect is strong and holds nicely. When unmagnetized, the gold magnetic pigment overshadows the red in the shift and gives it an overall gold look.

LynBDesigns

"Not the Meek and Obedient Type"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Outlander, specifically inspired this month by a quote from Claire, and her blue wool-silk gown and red embroidered jacket.

Description: "Not the Meek and Obedient Type" is a deep bluish black to red to orange to yellow multichrome with scattered rainbows of holo. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is absolutely beautiful, and by far the most unique way I've seen the black to red pigment used yet. The formula definitely sits on the thinner side, so thin coats are best to avoid any cuticle flooding. This polish really feels more like a jelly with surprise shifting shimmer, rather than a true multichrome. The base itself is jelly-like and the multichrome pigment isn't super dense, so it does not quite reach full opacity at 3 coats. But I'm really loving this more sheer look with this one.

Night Owl Lacquer

"It Has Legs!"

Price: $12.80 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by Stalker Guardians, and maker Lindsay's reaction the first time she came across one of these alarming fellas!

Description: "It Has Legs!" is a black base with gun metal micro flakies, silver galaxy holographic micro glitter, bright silver flakes and purple/red/gold & blue/purple/red crystal chameleon flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This beautiful polish manages to be both subtle and glitzy at the same time. The glitters and flakes are dense, and build beautifully in the black jelly base. Application was very easy, with simple clean up/touch up. It dries quickly with a definite glitter polish texture. I would suggest maybe using 2 coats of top coat or a glitter burying coat with this one. Even though it does cloud the holo glitters, this one is still beautiful matte as well.
