Hello loves! I have a few fun lacquers from Renaissance Cosmetics to show you today. Renaissance Cosmetics is an Indie polish company that offers a large range of lacquers with unique finishes that simply aren't available in gel polish. You know I'm a sucker for unique finishes, and these certainly do not disappoint.
I'm super excited to have the opportunity to show you these today. I have only recently started branching out into indie polishes over the past year, and I have to admit that the companies I have worked with so far really set the bar high in terms of quality, uniqueness, and customer service. I'm happy to say that Renaissance Cosmetics falls right in line with the others. The polishes are very high quality and apply nicely. I'll go into application more with the swatches, but overall I'm impressed. Add in the worldwide shipping, and I'm sold!
Enough talk. Ready for some photos? The first polish I have to show you is Flirt. Flirt is a wine colored linear holographic polish with larger holographic glitter pieces scattered throughout. The result is a polish with dimension and brilliance. This is two easy coats. I found that the larger glitter pieces did want to migrate down the nail a little, but I had plenty of time to put them where I wanted them before the polish started to set. Major bonus for a gel user like me who isn't used to polish that actually dries. ;)
Nightshade is an amazing blue base with a shifty golden/teal shimmer and holographic glitters. There is no doubt in my mind that Meghan created this polish specifically for me without even knowing it. This is the kind of shade and finish combo that makes my heart sing! Like Flirt, this is two easy coats. I tried to capture it with the light bouncing off the nails from several angles to show the color and the flash.
St. Clair is another polish that makes my heart happy. You know I love my blues! This lovely bottle contains an almost metallic blue polish with a subtle purple shift. This one is also perfect in two coats and applied like a dream. The shift is quite obvious to the naked eye, but tried to escape my camera. I think I managed to capture it a little in the final shot.
The last polish I have to show you is one that really surprised me. It is beautiful in the bottle, but I'm not usually a fan of gold. In the bottle Porcelain Dream appears to be a glitter topper with mix of white and gold glitter with gold holographic pieces thrown in. But on the nail...oh my word! This polish has a little bit of everything! Golden shimmer, white and gold glitters, holographic glitters, and be still my heart - blue glass flecks! What's even more amazing is that this is ONE coat over a base of IBD Just Gel Dare To Be Decadent. One Coat! This makes it perfect for gel sandwiches. :) I did have to place the glitters a little to keep the larger pieces where I wanted them, but like Flirt and Nightshade, I found I had plenty of time before the polish started to set.
If you're like me and love refreshing your mani mid-week, you seriously need to check out Renaissance Cosmetics. These polishes are fabulous! To see more swatches, be sure to follow Renaissance on Facebook and Instagram.
