I have so many pretties to share with you over the next week or so. Prepare yourselves to see a lot of beauties, and heaven help all our bank accounts.
Today I have a new polish from Australian indie brand, Arcane Lacquer. Over the holiday period Arcane Lacquer got a little facelift and emerged with a new collection and sassy new labels that match her classy style to a tee. And, yes, I call brands ‘her’….like a car, not weird. Anyhoo, this polish is from Arcane’s new Soft Pulses Collection, which I absolutely love. It consists of six polishes, three being neutrals, the other three being a little saucier. Unfortunately I was monetarily depleted and could only choose two, so I picked my favourite neutral, and my favourite deep tones.
This is the neutral, State Of Grace. I adore it. The base is a mushroom grey creme that is almost crelly-like, in that it is not too dense to let the golden flakies and shimmer shine. This polish truly is graceful.
I am constantly amazed at the utter classiness of this indie brand and I really hope this is something Bec, the owner, has purposefully set out to achieve. Every polish is a ‘lady’, some demure, some statement makers, some a little raunchier. I feel this brand epitomises indies for real, grown woman who have style, and, in the case of this polish, Grace.
For the look I have here, I have applied two coats, and one of topcoat. I also added some gold bar studs to a feature nail, just for something different, but I’m still not sure if that ruined the ‘grace’ of the polish by being ‘too much’. The polish simply shines on it’s own in such a subtle way.
I really love this polish, I think I love too many polishes sometimes. Stop wowing me indie makers!!
Have a look at the others in the Soft Pulses Collection at Arcane Lacquer’s Store and follow Arcane Lacquer on Facebook to see more swatches of these polishes.
Thanks for reading.
