Urban Lacquers Swanky Panky, Sugar Britches and Ethereal Girl

Hello my beautiful readers, i hope this Monday finds you in good spirits...if not fear not for i have three gorgeous polishes from Urban Lacquer to show you to brighten your day.  The lovely Brenda sent me these for review, so without further ado here we go.

I am showing you first Sugar Britches...first i think the name is hilarious on this one, it really reflects the, sweet and funky.  Sugar Britches is made up of really outrageously pretty mix of pink glitters. we have fuchsia, light pink, medium pink and dark pink glitters..some are smaller hex, larger hex and square glitters. I think the different pinks and shapes and sized of the glitters really add texture and depth to an otherwise pretty polish...making t stand out.  I chose to layer this over Essie Splash Of Grenadine.  I had no application issues at all, SB flowed on my nail like butter.  I used 3 coats for the shots.

Next up we have Ethereal Girl.  Again, the name is a winner to me.  Now let me be honest, i don't care to much for polishes with a frosty like finish, they seem to draw every imperfection of your nails, and when i  opened this one y heart sank a little as i really wanted to do some pictures Brenda and myself would be proud of. Still i proceeded to the best of my efforts and i have to say this was a surprise to me.  Not only is the colour amazing but it was very very forgiving of any imperfections i had.....enough so out of all the pictures i took (which was many) i could have used them all!  I was really pleasantly surprised and would defo wear this one again.  So EG is a really cool smokey murky green polish that has a silver sheen finish to it.  I used 3 coats for these shots. Application was amazing on this one.

 Last but not least is Swanky Panky...what another wicked name!!  This one is without a doubt my favourite of the three i have showed you, it is pretty and interesting and girly all at the same time.  I chose to layer this over Nails Inc edbury bridge, a perfect combination in my humble opinion.  SP is made up in a gentle light pinky purple base with varying sizes of purple, turquoise an pink glitter.  This is a very happy combination of glitters that work so well together.  Well done to Brenda for making such a pretty colour!  I used 2 coats for the shots shown.  Application was excellent!

Overall i think these polishes were all pretty spectacular in there own right, Swanky Panky has my heart though!  I thank Brenda for sending me these, it has been a pleasure to review 3 such pretty colours.  You can find Urban Lacquer here at her etsy shop or find her on Facebook now rush over and make you purchases!
