Yume Lacquer Swatches & Review

Hello my poor little blog! I cannot even believe that it has been two months since I last posted. There's no need to spend too much time getting into why, same old story -- rough couple of months; too busy; just wasn't feeling up to editing photos; etc. I am back for now though and have quite a bit stored up to share with you, so hopefully I won't disappear again any time soon!

Today I have a new to me brand to share with you! Yume Lacquer has a wide variety of different pretties -- holos, glitters, shimmers; you name it! I especially enjoy this brand because the creator, Amanda, draws inspiration from all sorts of amazing things like Pokemon (!!), Sailor Moon, and Final Fantasy -- which of course totally calls out to the nerdy, Japan-obsessed side of me, lol. Take a look at the pretties I've got for you today!

left to right, up to down: Marukyu Striptease, Let's Positive Speaking, Sand Pearl

To avoid repetition all swatches are three coats + 1 coat of KB Shimmer Clearly On Top

Let's Positive Thinking is a shimmery medium brown full of pink shimmer (click the photo to view full-size and you will definitely see the sparks of pink!). Application was great, no problems to report. I love this shade of brown, it's so warm and chocolatey!

Sand Pearl is a nude shimmery base loaded with matching microglitter, holo diamonds, and tons of pink shimmer. This one leans very light pink on me. The diamonds were just the teensiest bit tough to grab but other than that no issues here. I really really love this color! Have worn it a couple times since swatching; the pretty pink shimmery sparkle jazzes it up just enough that this may have become my go-to neutral (or as neutral as you can be covered in rainbowy diamonds, anyway -- never been one for nails that demand attention, after all).

Lastly, Marukyu Striptease is a shimmery fuschia base packed with blue green, red, pink, and purple matte glitters. This one is so packed with glitter that it was kind of hard to apply -- just make sure to let layers dry so you don't catch previous layer's glitters and peel them off, and that should do the trick. So colorful and pretty though, I love it!

And there you have it! My first blog post in months.. have missed it, lol. And what pretty polishes to kick my return off with! I especially love Sand Pearl (dat pink shimmah) but all are great!
