Polish Me Silly – Meet My Chromies Part I
16th January, 2014 - Posted by Emily - 2 Comments
Today I am sharing the new collection by Polish Me Silly (formerly known as Lush Lacquer). The talented and lovely ladies behind this brand, mother/daughter team Karin and Lexi are releasing a new collection which is called Meet My Chromies. As you’ve probably guessed, it’s a collection filled with dazzling duochromes and multichromes. Exciting!
As there are over 20 new shades in this collection (and I have more than 50 photos to share!!!) I decided to split up my post into three parts, leading up to the launch which is later today (7PM PST). I’ll be posting the next part in a few hours so stay tuned! The first part includes the six duochrome lacquers.
Polish Me Silly – Metal Mama (3 coats on its own)
Polish Me Silly – Metal Mama (2 coats over black)
Polish Me Silly – Metal Mama: First up is Metal Mama, my favourite out of the duochromes! It’s a stunning deep brownish red with orange shimmer that shifts to gold and olive green. I can spot so many different colours in this shade, it’s really spectacular. The shift is as you can see quite strong too. I love both how it looks on its own and over black, it’s hard to pick a favourite. The black base really amps up the duochrome effect!
Polish Me Silly – Waz Up Girl (4 coats on its own)
Polish Me Silly – Waz Up Girl (2 coats over black)
Polish Me Silly – Waz Up Girl: Next up is Waz Up Girl, an amazing pink to orange duochrome. This is owner Karin’s personal favourite shade! It’s a gorgeous blue-based pink with a stunning silver holographic microglitter. The orange shift becomes more apparent once you shift your nails! I especially adore the silver microglitter in this one. It’s very beautiful.
Polish Me Silly – Tease Me (3 coats on its own)
Polish Me Silly – Tease Me (2 coats over black)
Polish Me Silly – Tease Me: Tease Me has a gorgeous radiant orchid base (hello colour of the year!) with pink/blue shimmer. This one looks very different depending on which light setting you are in, and it looks even more different if you layer it over black. It’s such a complex colour, really stunning. Once you layer it over black it changes into a blue to pink shifting shimmer.
Polish Me Silly – Show Off (4 coats)
Polish Me Silly – Show Off (2 coats over black)
Polish Me Silly – Show Off: A stunning shimmery glass fleck blurple that shifts to pink and gold. As you can see the colour shift is very strong, it has tons of shimmer particles so it’s a very eye-catching polish. For me, this one definitely comes to life layered over black. Love the bright colours of this one!
Polish Me Silly – Steel My Heart (3 coats on its own)
Polish Me Silly – Steel My Heart (1 coat over black)
Polish Me Silly – Steel My Heart: Steel My Heart is a gorgeous steel blue duochrome that shifts to a soft lavender purple. There’s lots of shimmer in this one again, the overall colour is muted but the shimmer is very bright. I personally prefer this one layered over black, as it really brings out the colour shift and colours!
Polish Me Silly – Turtle Time (3 coats on its own)
Polish Me Silly – Turtle Time (2 coats over black)
Polish Me Silly – Turtle Time: Finally we have Turtle Time which is a really beautiful greenish blue shade that shifts to purple/pink. On its own you can see the brownish base creates a sort of Turtle coloured effect which is stunning. Over black it’s a lot brighter but equally stunning.
As I mentioned, the new Polish Me Silly collection, Meet My Chromies, is launching today at 7PM PST on their Etsy page. Prices range between $10.50 and $11.50 a bottle.
