L->R: Lacquer Lust Taurus, Eternal Bliss, Purple Reign

Good day! Today I have 3 polishes from Lacquer Lust to swatch and review for you today! These are some pretty awesome polishes, worth taking a peek! PSSSST,  HOLOOOOOO


First up, my favorite one ;]

This was my favorite of the three Jo sent me to review. Look at that close up, f*cking stunning. Lacquer Lust Taurus is a black jelly polish with holo dust, and flakie like glitter that flashes orange and green/blue. This one really came to life in the sun, as you can see! I'm not a fan of black polishes, but the complexity of this polish has me all excited haha

I did 3 coats for full opacity. No issues. Dry time was great, I let the layers dry completely before each layer though because it is a jelly. Nice smooth application, too!

Eternal Bliss seems to be what everyone is lusting (yes that was intended haha) after! A white(-ish) holo, oh me oh my. Another polish that pops great in the sun. Although, the linear effect of the holo isn't strong.

I did 2 coats of Eternal Bliss, which surprised me because I was expecting 3! Application was smooth and painless. Dry time was also good :]

L->R: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Lacquer Lust Eternal Bliss,
Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Bottom: Zoya Dove

Above is  a quick comparison to show you where Eternal Bliss lies in the white-grey scale of polish. I'd say its not stark white like Sinful Colors Snow Me White (a regular white creme), not as dark as Zoya Dove, and pretty close to the white-grey color of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

L->R: Lacquer Lust Eternal Bliss and Glitter Gal Light As A Feather

And here's the ultimate comparison. Lacquer Lust Eternal Bliss VS Glitter Gal Light As A Feather.

Glitter Gal Light As A Feather: Pointer and ring fingers
Lacquer Lust Eternal Bliss: Middle and pinky fingers.

The Glitter Gal polish is a little more grey in color and the linear effect is much stronger. Lacquer Lust's Eternal Bliss, however, is more opaque than LAAF and takes less coats (2 VS 3+) I wouldn't raise the dupe flag for these two. They're pretty similar in color but there's a bigger difference in the holo effect. I like them both equally, for different reasons!

Please excuse the difference in light, I ran out of time the first day of swatching! Purple Reign is a purple, jelly, thermal polish with purple micro flakies! I love how squishy this looks on the nail :) As you can see the thermal effect, the darker purple is when your nails are cold and the lighter purple is when your nails are warm. I really like how this polish is more hot/cold sensitive compared to the other 2 thermal indies I own (Polish TBH and Twenty Seven Polish)!

This was 3 coats. No issues in application or dry time, I did wait in between coats due to the jelly finish. :)

  1. i'm so glad that you posted these swatches b/c i'm suddenly not lusting after many of these (good for my wallet)! taurus is a must-buy, though -- so unique and probably only dupeable by layering several different polishes. it's *so* much nicer to just do a few coats of one polish lol. looking forward to the next restock.
