Finger Lickin’ Lacquer is releasing a stunning and fun end-of-summer collection!
The other day I received an exciting swatch mail packet from Finger Lickin’ Lacquers. After all my oohing and ahhing, I could already smell some sweet scents. And it wasn’t just from the candy included (and you’ll get also) in the packet.
There are six “glorious faded neon jellies” came with fantastic scents within (should you choose to have them added). And I would add the scents if I were you, because they are delicious and not overpowering.
I love summer neons but at times, in certain situations they can be a bit much. However I love these faded neons. Sort of like the gentle way summer slowly fades into the sunset, it’s colors can be toned down, while still being exciting.
FLL’s creator/owner, Jen of South Carolina, says, “All of these polishes are named after songs by Syd Barrett, the former frontman for Pink Floyd. Why Syd Barrett songs? Syd’s music was incredibly psychedelic, and the album covers featured brilliantly bright colors like these polishes.”
Here are the descriptions of each of these pastel neons. Note: I used two coats over one coat of white. Although you could use it alone, the white will bring out the pastel neons much better (still smells divine) and I’m telling you, these babies are glossy. The formulas on all of these are smooth, easy to apply. I don’t normally bother with adding a white base with regular neons, but in this case it totally, and positively changes the whole dynamic.
• Love You is a pink jelly with a strawberry daiquiri scent.
• Long Gone is an orange jelly with a dreamsicle scent.
• Golden Hair is a yellow jelly with a pina colada scent.
• Terrapin is a greenish-yellow jelly with a margarita scent.
• Here I Go is a blue jelly with a fruit punch scent.
• Octopus is a purple jelly with a grape scent.
Remember, any of these polishes can be purchased on August 15 for $8.50. All scents are optional. Overall I found all formulas to be smooth and consistent, easy to apply and on the sheer end of the spectrum. Recommended to be layered over white, and for more fun, used as a watercolor effect is SO EASY!
How are you planning on spending the rest of your summer? Going back to school, last minute vacay, or maybe a staycation to finish up some much needed landscaping?
I might add that Jen can also create custom polishes. Just ask her!
