Lilypad Lacquer - Shades of Singapore Collection Part 1

Hello all!

Life caught up with me for a while and I was ripping my hair out trying to do homework for my last classssss of collegeeeee and then I got distracted. In a good way. Screw homework for a while I need to paint my nails. You'll understand why. Lilypad Lacquer did an exclusive collection with Beauty So Fly called Shades of Singapore! All of these polishes were inspired by Singapore staples. They are all SO FREAKING PRETTY. I think they're a perfect excuse to drop whatever you're doing and paint your nails with them. I only swatched 3 of the 6 at a time so that I could, eventually, unfortunately get back to my homework. Take a look!

Singapore Skyline

Inspired by the beautiful skyline in Singapore..this blue holo with copper flakes and an orange shimmer that at times appears a bit pink will dance in your eyes. It is absolutely stunning and definitely a favorite of the bunch. It's just...drool.

Durian Dreaming

This little pretty packs quite a punch, much like the pungent smell I've only heard about of the durian. At first glance it looks like a deep olive green holo with some gold shimmer. But that gold shimmer goes KAPOW when it gets on the nail. And in the sun. And when light of any kind hits it in general.

Chilli Crab

I love some good crab...even on my nails! From a classic dish in Singapore, this color translates quite well into a polish. It's a bright yet darker coral/red/pink holo with some awesome silvery glass flecks in it and it's delicious. I've never had chilli crab...but if it's as tasty as this polish I think someone should bring it to me STAT.

I'm beyond happy that I grabbed these polishes. They are a one time release collection and they're all simply gorgeous (just wait until you see the next three). I think they reflect Singapore really well and they make me want to go there (I'll pass on eating any durian though ;) ) Such a good reason to procrastinate on doing homework!

Two coats plus top coat in all pictures. I think I could have gotten away with 1 coat for most of these but I do 2 for good measure. Formula is a dream.

You can find the collection at Beauty So Fly but once they're sold out they are gone. You can find a bunch more Lilypads while you're there though!

Until next time, stay famous!
