Swatches & Review - Two Birds Lacquer 'Just So' collection

Hi lovelies!

I am really excited about showing you the new collection from Two Birds Lacquer today - I think Stacey from Two Birds Lacquer somehow got into my brain and made some of my wishes come true for autumn. Fans of a jewel tone or autumn shade will be very pleased with this collection, as will the jelly glitter lovers!

Two Birds Lacquer Just So collection




AGREEABLY AMBER

Two Birds Lacquer - Agreeably Amber

Squeeeee! Brown glitter jelly! This is a gorgeous burnt amber jelly with orange, copper and bronze glitters in a few different sizes. I love the reddened orange glow when the light hits your nails. This is the squishy brown goodness I've been looking for.

Formula on this was good, a little bit of dabbling helps spread the glitters and it's easy to do this. I found it was opaque at two coats but it just gets richer with a third, which I did for my swatches. You will need a nice glitter feeding top coat to get a smooth finish

CANDIDLY CARMINE

Two Birds Lacquer - Candidly Carmine

Velvet anyone? Even glossy I still read this as a soft and lush burgundy velvet, flecked with black and bronze. I love how refined and regal this feels, a soft shimmery twist on a classic polish colour.

Again I found this polish was opaque in two coats but just got richer with three. Formula is smooth and lovely to apply.

MERELY MOSS

Two Birds Lacquer - Merely Moss

Hello dream polish! Juicy jelly glittery moss, you are my everything. Totally filthy gorgeous. The khaki/forest green jelly is full of forest green micro glitter and perfect teeny tiny bronze glitters.

I did three coats to reach full opacity and found the formula a dream - no dragging glitter and a nice easy finish that isn't too thirsty for top coat, however a nice thick glossy top coat will up that sparkle and depth to perfection.

MODESTLY MAUVE

Two Birds Lacquer - Modestly Mauve

Shimmery pearlescent lavender with a smattering of holo micro glitters. While I think it's a pretty colour I don't love the finish, the shimmery pearl base obscures the holo glitters a bit too much for my liking. Top coat made the holo glitters look a bit like air bubbles in certain light, but it's not entirely necessary.

The formula was really nice, it applied smooth and evenly with no dragging or balding. I only needed two coats for perfect opacity which means a quicker dry time if you decide to skip top coat.

NATURALLY NAVY

Two Birds Lacquer - Naturally Navy

Another polish that I swear was plucked directly from my brain is this sapphire stunner. A rich navy jelly full of sapphire glitters and gold flecks. I love that the blue jelly gives the gold flecks a slightly olive tone - so uniquely beautiful.

I needed three coats for the perfect finish, but I found this really great to work with. The glitters spread really easily across the nail and the base was a lovely consistency. This is another glitter hungry polish so you may need an extra layer of top coat for a nice glassy finish, I have only used one or my swatches.

SIMPLY SAGE

Two Birds Lacquer - Simply Sage

Lovely soft dusky sage with a golden shimmer. Somehow despite the range of greens I hoard this is a truly unique colour joining my collection so I am thrilled with this one! The shimmer is subtle but just right. It brings a nice warm light to the overall look without overpowering the soft base.

The formula was really lovely, applied smooth as butter and self levelled well. I only needed two coats for opacity and a lick of top coat to gloss it up.

Once again, I'm truly impressed by Two Birds Lacquer and the Just So collection. Beautiful range of colours, and a few different finishes to mix things up. Formulas were wonderful on all and I am super happy with the squishy jellies.

The Just So collection is available via Two Birds Lacquer tomorrow (Saturday8/5) for $9.95 each or $50 for the entire collection. Bargain!
