Aaaah February. A time for romantic dinners, moonlit carriage rides through the streets, and sweet confections in all shapes and sizes!!!! So it makes sense the February theme for Polish Pickup is Sugar Rush!!! Today I have some beautiful swatches from Night Owl Lacquer. This post is extra exciting because it’s a two-parter in that I got to try out TWO very different products!! Read on for more…..
First up I have swatches of the beautiful Tastes Like Purple. Tastes like Purple is described as a purple base with purple shimmer, purple metallic flakies, purple to blue shifting iridescent shreds, purple crystal flakes and holographic micro flakies.
Below is the inspiration picture:
My swatches below are two easy coats plus top coat. Application was a dream, and let me tell you to say this polish is eye-catching would be a massive understatement. How about you be the judge:
I have to say, this polish is exactly what I think purple would taste like 🙂 I adore the purple-to-blue shift.
Even though this polish is full of bling and shine, removal is super easy! It retails for $10 USD.
Next up we have a wax melt!!! Caramel Popcorn is a handcrafted wax melt made from a custom scent mixture and soy-parafin wax blend. It is described as a buttery popcorn smothered in salted caramel, with scent notes of butter, roasted corn, salt, caramelized sugar, vanilla & maple.
I’m just going to say – nailed it! The scent as described is SPOT ON. It comes in this little container with a snap-on lid:
I burned this in my Scentsy warmer, which if you don’t know uses a low-wattage bulb as a melting mechanism. This means it melts at a lower temp (it’s been my experience that soy wax bends have a lower melting point). I used 1/3 of the container in my warmer and within minutes had my children hunting me down to ask what smelled so good, and what was I making them for dessert! Amazing throw that lasted for a long time (I’ve melted it for quite a few hours and it is still throwing with no sign of letting up!) I appreciated an almost nutty scent note in there too.
This wax melt retails for $2.25 USD for 1.8 ounces. There is a cap of 200 on this item, meaning that once the first 200 are sold, the item will be sold out! So don’t hesitate if you love yummy smells as much as I do!
Both Tastes Like Purple and Caramel Popcorn are available from 11 AM EST Feb 2nd until Feb 5th at midnight.
This is a pre-order and shipping will start approximately 3 weeks after you place your order. Shipping is a flat-rate of $3 within the US and $5 to Canada, regardless of how many polishes you order! International shipping is available at cost.
