Swatch and Review – Lilypad Lacquer

Hello everyone!!! Today I have a review of some absolutely beautiful polishes from Australian Indie polish maker Lilypad Lacquer. Lilypad Lacquer is a new-to-me brand that is both 5-free and cruelty-free.

Spellbound Cashmere Coat Sweet Viola Lilypad Lacquer

I was sent 3 polishes to try – all swatches are two coats plus top coat, and were photographed in natural light. And because I can’t resist, I did some nail art with each one!!!

First up is Spellbound.

Spellbound is gorgeous multi-chrome, multi-colour flakies and a silver shimmer all packed into a mint jelly base. It reminds me of Halloween, especially with a name like that!!! Spellbound was opaque for me in two easy coats, but you may need 3 depending on your application.

I wanted to see how it looked layered over a black base. This is one coat:

And with some stamping!

Next we have Cashmere Coat, and let me tell you the name is spot on!

This polish is a beautiful nude holo packed with multi-coloured flecks and shimmer, and it’s just lush on the nail.

Last but not least, we have Sweet Viola.

This is a violet polish that shifts to a blue/green/gold. The first coat was sheer but surprisingly it built up for me in only two coats! I do think if you had longer nails with more visible free edge you may need a third coat to prevent any visible nail line.

How rich is this polish?? This is a great example of a polish that just glows from within.

The formula on all three of these polishes was just stellar. Easy to use, didn’t run or pool down the side of the nail, no streaks or patches. Removal of all three was easy too although I did have to work a teensy bit more at Spellbound just because it’s so packed with all that gorgeousness!! 

These are all currently available at www.lilypadlacquer.com, and they ship worldwide! You can also visit them on Facebook and Instagram for latest news and restock info!!!!

And as always, feel free to visit me at @thedotcouture for all things nail! Until next time, happy painting!!!

    1. Hi Shannon! So I actually had to open them up and give them a sniff because I didn’t recall one way or the other! They have a nail polish smell, however because they are 5-free, they are free from the dangerous chemicals found in a lot of nail polishes. Therefore they don’t have that overwhelmingly strong chemical odour you can get with a lot of polishes. Also to note – some pigments just have a strong odour (blues and purples come to mind). So if nail polish smells bother you, you may need to keep that in mind. A good rule is to always polish in a well-ventilated area! I hope this helps!
