Tomorrow, Cuticula Nail Lacquer will be releasing a super fun trio of polishes inspired by maker Amanda's love for fireworks! These flakie packed beauties are very versatile in that they can be worn alone in 2-3 coats or be used as toppers. While these are perfect for the upcoming July 4th holiday here in America, they are lovely enough to be worn any time of year!

The Sparkler Trio is set to release this Friday, June 11th, at 8am Mountain (10:00am Eastern) at shopcuticula.com!

"Flare"

Price: $12.50 individually | $36 for trio

Description: This is a shifting shimmer base of pink, gold, and green shifts with red and blue metallic flakes. Shown in 3 coats, plus Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats. Also shown as a single coat topper over Cuticula’s “Blue Velvet” [purchased] and over Heather’s Hues “Jolly” [PR], “Illuminate” [gifted], and “Shadow” [gifted].

Thoughts: Perfect for the shifty shimmer lover! In addition to the beautiful, metallic red and blue flakes the trio has in common, “Flare” is also filled with a stunning glowy shimmer. Application was easy and smooth. This is the most sheer of the trio, but full coverage can be built in 3 coats. It is beautiful with a glossy top coat, but I'm surprisingly a big fan of it when matte! As a topper, it looks great over all the typical July 4th colors. I personally love it over white! Due to its sheer nature, this may be the best of the trio for use as a topper.

"Sky Rockets"

Price: $12.50 individually | $36 for trio

Description: This is a clear base made of metallic red and blue flakes with silver holographic flakes. Shown in 2 coats, plus Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats. Also shown as a single coat topper over Cuticula’s “Blue Velvet” [purchased] and over Heather’s Hues “Jolly” [PR], “Illuminate” [gifted], and “Shadow” [gifted].

Thoughts: Perfect for the metallic flakie lover! The foil-like metallic finish is gorgeous! Application was quick and easy, with dry time being nice and quick as well. I was also rather surprised with how beautiful this was when matte as well. I found “Sky Rockets” to be the most opaque of the trio. So while it is pretty dense with flakes, thin coats will work well for topping. I personally thought it looked best over blue and black.

"Brocade"

Price: $12.50 individually | $36 for trio

Description: This is a holographic base made of holographic pigment and flakes with metallic blue and red flakes. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats. Also shown as a single coat topper over Cuticula’s “Blue Velvet” [purchased] and over Heather’s Hues “Jolly” [PR], “Illuminate” [gifted], and “Shadow” [gifted].

Thoughts: Perfect for the sparkly holo lover! This beaut is definitely the most glitzy of the trio! The formula is great and is packed with both linear holo and holo glitters in addition to the metallic red and blue flakes. Individual coat opacity sits in between the other two of the trio, so toppabilities are numerous! It looks great over all the colors I tried, with the black and white bases being my personal favorites. While it is still a nice silver flakie polish when matte, do yourself a favor by keeping the matte top coat off this one and letting all that glossy holo goodness shine!

Again, the Sparkler Trio will be available this Friday, June 11th, at 8am Mountain (10:00am Eastern) at shopcuticula.com!
