Firecracker Lacquer Kissy Face Trio

Are you ready for more love? Yes, of course you are! Firecracker Lacquer has a glorious trio just perfect for Valetine's Day...and pretty much every other day too. I mean, isn't glitter the real reason for the season?


(promotional samples ahead)

My Heart Beats for You Holo
This absurdly sparkly holo topper has something for everyone. There is a linear holo, holo glitter, tiny blue and white hearts, and I swear I spy holo sparks in there too. I sponged a thin layer over Vio-Let Me Down Easy and then topped it with a thick layer of Seche Vite. It is glorious. Glorious.

I Pink I Love You
If you don't know that FcL does pink like a magician...well, welcome to my blog. I'm Nichole and I'll be your guide through the shenanigans and general fuckery around these parts. This pink is a glorious vivid raspberry filled with holo sparks and fine, shifting gold flakes. It is a tiny bit sheer on the first coat, but it only needed two normal coats for the pictures here. I topped it off with a layer of SV, and it glowed like magic. If my backyard wasn't flooded, you'd see the holo sparks flashing like supernovae.

Vio-Let Me Down Easy
Oh purple, when did you become my favorite thing? I don't know, but I would put this sucker in my top ten. This plush violet jelly is full of holo sparks and has a liberal dusting of blue shifting flakes. Unf, you guys. I was worried when I saw this in the bottle, because shades this busy can be a bitch-and-a-half to apply. But nope! Thin layers were super easy to achieve, and I was able to happily build this shade up in three thin coats. I added a thin coat of SV to finish it off.

What is the verdict? Are you in love with all these departures from the typical "baby pink looooove" Valentine's collections that are popping up? I have to admit that I am. I am not the most...squishyloveydovey person, so anything slightly left of center makes me giddy.
