Philly Loves Lacquer

Press Sample

I am so excited to share some Philly Loves Lacquer with you today! I have been wanting to try this brand for a while now, and I am so glad I was able to swatch these! Philly Loves Lacquer is releasing their Seeing Isn't Believing Collection on November 28th, and I have the five that will exclusively be sold on Philly Loves Lacquer's website.

There are 11 other polishes in this collection: 7 for Ella Ann Cosmetics, 3 for Lacquer Chic Shop, and 1 super secret one for the Indie Gift Box. The Philly Loves Lacquer exclusive set is comprised of 5 polishes: 3 linear holos, 1 sparkly glitter crelly, and 1 dense micro-glitter topper.

  • Field-Dressed a Cat - a bright hot pink linear holo with a darker pink flash 
  • Denny's: An American Institution - a sunny yellow shimmery base with red crystal micro-glitter and a very subtle holo 
  • Shots of Brown Liquor - a chocolatey brown linear holo with gold micro shimmer and a gold flash 
  • Christmas at the Pound - a reddish-brown linear holo with a red/green shift and red/green micro-shimmer 
  • When I Wake Up, I'm Getting a CAT Scan! - a dense micro-glitter topper filled with a rainbow of metallic and holo micro-glitter. 

This part of the collection will be sold exclusively through Philly Loves Lacquer and will be available on November 28th for $9 each, as part of my Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday sale. On December 2nd, they will go back up to $12 each.

Christmas at the Pound is a beautiful linear holographic polish. It appears rose gold on me, which I think is a gorgeous neutral color to have. The formula is amazing and I only needed two coats for full coverage. I was really happy at how well I am able to control the polish. There are no pooling issues at all.





When I Wake Up, I'm Getting a Cat Scan! is gorgeous! It is a full coverage micro-glitter! There are all colors of glitter in this and holographic glitters! I'm in love! I seriously appreciate full coverage micro-glitters. I used three coats for good measure here, but two is sufficient. I love the formula, again, it is super easy to control. 





Field-Dressed A Cat is a bright pink leaning fuchsia with hints of a blue tint. It is also a linear holographic polish! This really isn't my type of color, but I ended up wearing it for a day when I was only going to swatch it. It is lovely and has the same great formula. I used two coats here.





Denny's: An American Institution is such a great, unique color. It is a yellow with shimmer and red glitters throughout. I really have nothing like it in my collection! The formula is wonderful, again, and I really thought this color was pretty cool!





Shots of Brown Liquor is a lovely bronze/gold/brown holographic polish! It is really multi-faceted and lovely in different lights. This one has a bit thicker formula than the rest, but still amazing! I used two coats here. 





So, what do you think? I think I am 100% in love with Philly Loves Lacquer now. I love that there is so much holo in this collection, but the thing that sells me on this brand the most is the amazing quality of the polish! This really made me happy while I was applying. My favorite colors are When I Wake Up, I'm Getting a Cat Scan! and Shots of Brown Liquor, but I really do love them all. As I posted in the beginning, they are having a sale for Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday, so be sure to check that out on her website starting November 28th aka Black Friday! No stress of fighting off people in the stores! I hope you like these as much as I do. Thanks for reading.
