Superchic Lacquer: Gaslighted Collection Part 2: Lost My Melon, Shrinking Violet & Fuchsure Drive Me Insane

Happy Friday!

Today I have the other three polishes from the Superchic Lacquer: Gaslighted Collection, Lost My Melon, Shrinking Violet & Fuchsure Drive Me Insane.  I cannot reiterate how much I love all 5 polishes.  The formulas are perfect, the colors stunning.  This is my favorite spring collection so far!

First, this is Shrinking Violet.  This polish GLOWS.  There is a beautiful cast to this shade in the sun and it literally looks like the nail has a halo on it.  I know that sounds cheesy but I swear it's true.  I actually painted my toes with this (I hate feet, too, I'm sorry, but full disclosure yall!) and I never paint my toes with anything except nudes, sooo let that show you how much I LOVE this polish.

Swatches show three thin coats with topcoat.  Love, love, love.  The green/blue/pink flash is amazing.  This is my hands down favorite of this collection.

Next up, Lost My Melon is a gorgeous coral shimmer.  This is a close second for favorite and I know this is going to look amazing with a tan.  The swatches show two coats with topcoat.

I couldn't resist adding a couple Vinyl Stickers by Sam bows to this polish. Love it!

Last but certainly not least, the bright member of the group, this is Fuchsure Drive Me Insane, a radiant purple with flashes of green, light pink  and more. SO pretty, a perfect shade for spring, summer, and fall.  Love how vibrant this one is, and the swatches show two coats with topcoat.

I added dots of Shrinking Violet and Matte-ict by A Girl Obsessed:

I was feeling another gradient, so I used Figmint of My Reality, Shrinking Violet, and Fuchsure Drive Me Insane for this look, topped with HK Girl.  Yes, I need more practice with the gradients, but I like the look!

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
