Loaded Lacquer Swatches and Review (recent haul)

Hey guys! Today I have a little mini-haul from one of my fav indie brands, Loaded Lacquer. One was a gift I haven't posted about here yet and the other 2 were recent purchases!

Toasted Marshmallow is a gray jelly polish. I apply jelly polishes with one thin coat and one thicker coat, that usually works for more opaque jellies like Heather's! Thinner jellies require way more coats. They also dry down a little dull so you definitely need topcoat! This is 2 coats plus HK girl topcoat.

Achieve-mint is a mint green jelly I've been wanting for a while, I finally had good enough reason to order it! After 2 coats it was still a little streaky so I added a partial 3rd coat in some places, if that makes sense! Topcoat also helps to smooth everything out. I think there's a trick to applying this type of polish, I haven't quite mastered it yet but I'm getting there!


Lastly is the "January Jelly of the Month" which is what it sounds like, Heather is creating a different shade each month in this series. I don't usually get too into "mystery" polishes but this one was calling my name as soon as I saw it. I mean, you guys know me, right? I couldn't NOT get this. So I ordered this and Achieve-mint! January is a bright robin's egg blue, this is 2 coats plus topcoat. Perfection. I wore this for a good long time before I took it off :)
