MeLissa Lacquer Swatches and Review

*press sample*

Hello polish lovers!

I am happy to have another indie review to share with you today. This time from MeLissa Lacquer. This is my second time working with the brand and I really like what I got to try this time around, so let's take a look!

This is Viral Video. The glitter in this is pretty sparse but I ended up liking the end result a lot even though it took a little extra effort to apply. This is about 2 coats over a Born Pretty Sweet Color polish. Very fun glitter combo!

This is Social Media. I did one coat over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White Out. This has quite the variety of glitters in it and they all work together really well. I like the girly vibe Social Media gives off too.

QR Code is a versatile black and white top coat which are my favorite kind simply for their versatility. I layered one coat and placed a few extra glitters over Kleancolor Pastel Pink. I think the microbars are what really ties this topper together.

Next up, is Repeat the Past. This is one coat over Milani Purple Martin. Very fun combo! I don't normally go for shredded glitter but these are perfectly proportioned with the rest of the glitters to be just the right accent. I can see this polish being perfect for the winter season as well.

And finally, this is NY on a Summer Afternoon. I haven't been to New York but I can definitely see how this name fits the polish. Lots going on, really colorful and it all works to make a pretty awesome glitter topper! This is one coat over Milani Peacock.

Overall, I really liked all of the polishes that I was sent to review for different reasons and was surprised  by a few that I wouldn't think would be a favorite. I think Melissa does a good job of making polishes that can stand out in this saturated indie polish world.

You can find MeLissa Lacquer on Etsy and Facebook. :)

Tell me your favorite polishes from this batch!
