Regal Ween Lacquer: Middle Earth Part 1

Standard

Today I have the recently released Middle Earth Part 1 set from Regal Ween Lacquer. This is a five part set that is inspired by different locations from the Lord of the Rings world. I did stamping inspired by each theme of the polish too! Up first is Minas Tirith.

image

Minas Tirith is a metallic white inspired by the capitol city of Gondor of the same name. It has a subtle shift of color blue, purple, gold  or cyan with some scattered holo in the mix.

I did brickwork and a castle for the great fort of Minas Tirith. This polish is beautiful. The formula was great, two to three coats for opacity. Dry time was also in par with her other polishes.

Rohan is inspired by the golden grasses of the fields of this city. It is a golden brown creme with gold holo dust. This also can used for stamping, which you will see later.

This beautiful, unique, polish is great, two coats for opacity, great formula and dry time. Clean up was easy as well.

This is The Shire, a vibrant green inspired by Frodo’s home. A shimmering green that can flash gold or purple.

I used Rohan for stamping here. I wanted a subtle tree look, but not to overpower the green and it was perfect for the job. It was opaque in two coats, and I feel this one is a stunner. Dry time was great, same with the formula.

image

This is Mount Doom, inspired by the burning fires of the mountain and the cold metal armor of Sauron’s army. It is a blacked base with red and purple tones and a chameleon shift and scattered holo.

This has a lot of depth to it, it like a little mystery in a bottle. I really love this one a lot. Opaque in two coats and great formula and dry time with no smudging.

Rivendell is inspired by the beauty of the elven city it is named after. It has green, mint, gold, holo white, iridescent and brown glitters, as well as multicolored illusion flakes in a clear base. It can be used as a topper or layered to opacity.

I did one to two coats on each color from the collection. Regal Ween Lacquer has some of the best glitter toppers on the market, they are packed and you don’t have to fish for anything. Formula is great, fast dry time and no smudging.

It’s no secret that Regal Ween Lacquer is one of my favorite brands, and they didn’t disappoint with this new collection. Even though I only stamped with one of the colors, I’m sure all of them will stamp. I’ve used some of her other colors from previous collections for stamping so it’s safe to say any non glitter polish will stamp from them. All info for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Regal Ween Lacquer: New Duos Review

Standard

Today I have a new pair of duos coming out tomorrow, 11/16, at 12 EST from one of my favorite brands, Regal Ween Lacquer.  In my opinion, everyone needs these duos in their life, they’re gorgeous!

First we have the Birthday Duo, to celebrate the owner’s husband’s 30th Birthday, on November 30! 

image

This duo consists of Bling, Bling, a beautiful delicate gold holo, and 30 On The 30th, a ultra packed golden glitter topper.

image

image

Both are beautiful, and the glitter compliments it perfectly!

image

image

The first macro is with one coat of 30 On The 30th,  and the second is with three.  Even with all those coats, it still dries down and isn’t thick at all.  Bling. Bling is opaque in two coats and has easy application.   Dry time is good, with no smudges.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  Bling, Bling, 30 On The 30th, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Next up I have the House Stark Duo, inspired by the Stark family from Game of Thrones.

image

This duo consists of The North Remmebers, a soft icy blue holo, and Winter Is Coming, a fantastic silver and iridescent glitter topper.

image

image

Once again, both beautiful and the glitter goes with it perfectly.

image

image

First macro is one coat of Winter Is Coming, second is three coats.  Again, dried down and wasn’t thick at all even with three coats.  It was very hard to capture all the shifty goodness in the glitter, and I will more than likely post a video tomorrow on my Instagram.  The North Remembers is opaque in two coats, great consistency,  and easy to work with.  Dry time was also great.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, The North Remembers, Winter Is Coming, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

These duos are both perfect and each one has something everyone can love.  All information for the shop is below, and as always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

Regal Ween Lacquer: World of Warcraft Polish Review

Standard

So, I’m a huge nerd, not that I talk about it much, but I geek out about anything themed on games,  fandoms, or anything I get my nerd on with.  I found Regal Ween Lacquer from a post on instagram,  and fell in love.  They are a just launched brand with their first set being based on the game World of Warcraft.   I don’t play currently due to different reasons, but WoW will always have a special place in my heart.  They have each polished themed after the different classes in the game, and I’m going to cover a few of those polishes in this post.

image

image

image

This is Suffer Well, a beautiful glitter topper representing Death Knights.   It’s packed to the brim with black, gunmetal and ice blue glitter. There was absolutely no fishing at all for anything in this glitter.  I hate it when you get a beautiful glitter and can’t get certain shapes out, that is not the case with this.  I used Zoya Dove as a base since it reminds me of their grayed skin.

image

image

This is Circle of Light, which represents the Priest class. It’s a beautiful shimmer white with gold and iridescent glitters, which matches Priests perfectly.  This is such a gorgeous color, and applied wonderfully.   Again, no issues with having to fish for glitter.  I personally think this would make an amazing color for a wedding too!

image

image

This is Life Bloom, and is the polish for Druids.  It’s a beautiful shade of green with bronze and pink colored glitters.  This one is the only one out of the bunch that I had to fish some with.  As long as you gave it enough time sitting upside down and gave it a good shake you can get the pink glitters out.

image

image

This is Cloak of Shadows and represents Rogues.  It’s a shifty grape crelly with gunmetal and black glitter.  Of course it is one of my favorites, since it’s purple.   It applied well, with no fishing as well.

image

image

This is Fel Fire and is my absolute favorite one out of this collection.  Not only does it have a multitude of purple glitter in green polish, my favorite color combo EVER, but represents Warlocks,  my own personal class preference.  I just can’t stop squeezing with joy over this polish.

image

This right here proves how awesome Regal Ween Lacquer is.  This is an unnamed custom glitter topper based on my favorite color, purple.  It has so much bling I it it’s ridiculous.  Their glitter are hands down the best I’ve used in a while.  No fishing, just a blingy brush every time you go to apply.

I personally feel that these are a whole bunch of unique, beautiful polishes.  There are more choices in her store, this is only part of the collection.   Even if you aren’t into the theme of the collection, they are beautiful and I feel anyone can wear them.

All the polishes had awesome dry time, along with easy application.
