Night Owl Lacquer Dreams Trio - Swatches & Review
Hi all! I'm excited to share today's post since I know so many of you loved Night Owl Lacquer Chasing Dreams, which was a Polish Pickup exclusive and is no longer available. Lindsay (the maker behind NOL) had so many different versions, or "sister polishes", of Chasing Dreams that she loved, she's decided to release a few of them in the shop! Let's take a look.
Night Owl Lacquer Dreams Trio Release Info:
- RELEASE DATE: Friday, February 16th at 8 PM MST in the Night Owl Lacquer shop
- PRICE: Full trio: $32.00 They'll also be available individually at $12 each, with the exception of Reverie which will be $11.
All photos in this post are taken under artificial light. All are topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. These polishes were provided for my honest review.
Maker description: This is the allllll the flakies version of Chasing Dreams. After I posted a mixing video showing all the flakies Nichole of Bedlam Beauty came to me with the idea of doing a just flakes version and she named it. It has a slightly platinum tinted base packed with bright silver flakes and 3 different shades of color shifting ultra chrome chameleon flakes. It can be opaque on it's own in 3 coats but it would probably make an awesome topper too.
Pointer and middle finger: 3 coats + topcoat
Ring finger and pinky: 1 coat + topcoat over a grey creme base (NOL Howl at the Moon, to be specific)
My thoughts: I'm personally not a huge fan of an all-flakie mani, but as far as the formula and variety go in this one, I was really impressed. I had good, but not quite full coverage in three generous coats on its own. I think sponging would give better opacity. I really like how it looks in just one coat over a dark base. I had great, even distribution of the flakies in both applications and all the flakes lay nice and flat.
Reverie + Matte Topcoat
My matte topcoat isn't cooperating lately, so these still have some shine, but you get the idea. Flakie polish + matte topcoat = dreams.
Follow Your Dreams
Maker Description: a light green linear holographic base with a pinkish red to yellow shifting shimmer, charcoal flakies, bright silver flakes and 3 different shades of color shifting ultra chrome chameleon flakes.
2 coats + topcoat
My thoughts: Great formula! This had excellent coverage for such a light holo. If you like this particular shade of green, you'll want to snag this polish. It's so unique. It's more of a light yellow green to me than just a light green. Hard to describe, but very pretty and fun for spring.
What Dreams Are Made Of
Maker Description: a teal linear holographic base with a pinkish red to yellow shifting shimmer, charcoal flakies, bright silver flakes and 3 different shades of color shifting ultra chrome chameleon flakes.
2 coats + topcoat
My thoughts: My favorite of the bunch! I'm always drawn to teal holos, but I buy them and never wear them because they're a little too *much*. Not this one! It's still a very rich shade, but more of a subdued teal, making it more wearable in my opinion. Great formula, strong holo, flakies disperse well, and gorgeous shimmer. A total win! Also, I had this Lizzie McGuire classic stuck in my heads for days thanks to the name of this one. ;)
Here's a look at the three new shades next to the original, Chasing Dreams, on my pinky. They compliment eachother so well!
Remember, you can grab the Dreams Trio Friday, February 16th at 8 PM MST in the Night Owl Lacquer shop.
