BCB Lacquers

"Witches Broom"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Galaxies, specifically inspired this month by the Witches Broom Nebula.

Description: "Witches Broom" is a crimson red polish with a red/orange shifting shimmer red/orange/green flakes and holo. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: What a bombshell of a red! It is so beautiful and elegant, ready for fall! This gorgeous polish has a wonderful, smooth jelly formula that applies easily. I opted for 3 thin coats to get the most out of the ruby red base, but some may find 2 coats to be enough. It has a gorgeous glow when matte as well.

Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"Ignite The Spark"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Disney Parks, specifically inspired this month by Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Description: "Ignite The Spark" is an indigo base with orange, yellow, aqua, and blue glass flakes. Shown here in 3 coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: I love this dusty denim blue base! There’s also some nice big chunks of flakes in there! It applies smoothly, but individual coats are quite sheer. Most of the opacity from the polish comes from the dense flakes themselves. The metallic flakes shine beautifully when glossy, but this polish is wonderful when matte as well!

Cuticula Nail Lacquer

'Quenched'

Price: $8.00 | No Cap

Description: Quenched was created to drench the glitters and leave a glassy smooth to the touch finish on your nails. No longer will you be scared to wear your favorite glitter or flake heavy polishes. This formula simply creates a shield over the glitter allowing it to completely smooth out your polish. With Quenched you can be rest assured that your mani will stay glossy and smooth the entire time.

Thoughts: I spent an embarrassingly long amount of time on a somewhat Lisa Frank inspired look, and decided to push Quenched to the limit. I tested it on a fully loose glitter look. I used 1 big ole hefty coat of Quenched to soak into all that texture from the loose glitters, and 2 coats of Limitless. It did a wonderful job with filling in the glitter texture! Any deeper dips in the texture are my fault for not being great at laying loose glitter evenly. lol

Heather's Hues

"I Can't Move On"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by Nick & June's sultry and fiery relationship that's filled with dark secrets.

Description: "I Can't Move On" is described as a rich deep red-violet base filled with black to red multichrome flakes Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I love the vampy feel of this polish! It is such a beautiful, rich burgundy jelly filled with shifty micro flakes. Application was smooth and easy, with coverage building with each coat. It has a neat look when matte, but the forefront purple shift of the flakes seems to disappear.

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by

Description: "What is This Sorcery?" or "WiTS" Lotion is packed full of skin-loving, nourishing natural ingredients that absorb quickly and leave your skin ultra moisturized.

It has top notes of Lemon, Orange, Bergamot, and Raspberry; mid notes of Carnation, Tuberose, Orchids, Hydrangea, and Calla Lily; and base notes of Vanilla, Oak Moss, and Tonka Bean. *Please note: WiTS contains oils derived from seeds/nuts.*

Thoughts: I've said it before, but WiTS has been my go-to lotion for years now! It provides wonderful moisture while quickly absorbing into the skin, so there is no greasy reside left behind. I love this scent! It's hard to pinpoint the exact scent notes, but prior to having the description, it smells warm and lightly floral. It also has a bit of sweetness that comes through too.

"Luxurious Raccoon"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Animal Magnetism, specifically inspired this month by the raccoon!

Description: "Luxurious Raccoon" is described as a rust colored base with purple to green shifting magnetic pull, red to orange shifting crystal flakies, and a hint of holo sparkle. Shown in 2 coats magnetized, plus gloss and matte top coats. Also shown in a single finger swatch as 2 coats unmagnetized.

Thoughts: This is a super unique polish! I'm loving it! The formula is fantastic and the magnetic line seemed to hold very well. The unique mustardy brown base is perfectly speckled with the crystal and holo flakes. The sparkle of the green-aqua-purple magnetic pigment is stunning as well, contrasting beautifully to the base color.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Shout"

Price: $12.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Psych, specifically inspired this month by S2E1 'American Duos.'

Description: "Shout" is a black with silver holographic micro flakies and red holographic micro glitters. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: First off, this is a GREAT polish for us UGA fans, and welcoming back the football season! lol. It applied smoothly and easily and dried quickly as well. It does have a bit of texture once dry, so you may opt for 2 coats of top coat or a glitter burying coat for a smoother finish. Although it clouds the holo of the glitters, I actually really do like the look of it when matte.
