You've Got Red on You, Not Using the Zed Word
Hihihihihihiiii Today I have a new-to-me brand called Cameo Colours Lacquer! Look at the fancy-dancy U in the word "color" :P Bahah This is one of 3 posts I'll be doing for this brand. So I'll shut up and show you some glitter!

How fun is Hex-Sea and I Know It?! (Besides the name hahaha) This polish is a "blue crelly full of neon pink, green and blue hex glitters in a variety of sizes". I love the color of this base and how the mix of glitter pops against it nicely.

I did 3 coats of Hex-Sea and I Know it alone and then on my ring finger, I did 2 coats over Zoya Tallulah (which was a perfect match btw!). It built up nicely on it's own if you don't want to layer it, 3 coats was no issue at all with a little bit of waiting between coats #2 and #3. The application was smooth and the glitter coverage was great and consistent.

This is a pretty unique polish to me. Although it's a simple mix of red and white glitter, it also is a thermal polish! (Which I didn't figure out until afttttttttttttter I had taken it off lmao I'll probably post a picture/video of the color change on Instagram later this week if you follow me, to make up for my not paying attentionness [HERE]) Although I missed the whole "this is a thermal polish" bus, I did layer it over red, so it should give you somewhat of an idea of the color change, kinda haha.

You've Got Red On You is a polish with "red holo glitters, red short bars, large red circles, small white hexes and a smattering of red micro glitter, all in a squishy red (when cool) to clear (when warm) thermal base". Again - duhdoy - I didn't realize it was a thermal haha but the red I layered over kinda gives you the gist of it :|

I did 3 coats of You've Got Red On You alone, and then 2 coats over China Glaze Hey Sailor. It was a little thirsty after drying so the swatches are with top coat. This one had a better dry time with 3 coats than the last and gave me no issues. Application was great as well. I did have to swirl a little bit for the large circles, but that's understandable.

This is a pretty cool polish! Not Using the Zed Word is a mix of "neon blue, green, yellow, and pink micro glitters, violet and silver holo micro glitters, and small red neon glitters in a bar which goes green in the dark". OH YAY, another effect I missed *sigh* I'll stick that on Instagram as well haha *facepalm* (HERE). I really love the mix of colors and the mix of matte and metallic glitter along with the awesome depth this polish creates when layered.

I was going to layer this over a color but it was pretty covering in 1 coat alone, so I just rolled with the punches! So, this was 2 coats of Not Using the Zed Word with top coat. No issues with dry time, it dried pretty quick to the touch. It didn't clump when applied and had a smooth application.

Can't wait to show you the others! Hope you enjoyed these. Overall impression, this brand def worth checking out if you haven't!
