Nailed It!, PR, Regular release

Release: 12 April 2020

4 polishes

Lush

Lush features a bright, almost lime, green base packed with red/green shifting iridescent flakes and some scattered holo. The scattered holo adds a nice sparkle in real life, but I had a hard time catching the effect on camera. Definitely more visible with the eyes! This is a really bright and fresh shade.

3 coats + top coat

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis features a holographic base with pink/green shifting shimmer and matching iridescent flakes. It looks to be more of a slightly-loose linear holographic effect. As usual, linear holos look much prettier in real life than on camera, at least with my lighting setup. I think my low-light photo (second one below this paragraph) captures the overall polish the most faithfully. The pink shimmer is really bright and luminous.

Sakura

I was quite surprised to see the name Sakura given to a non-pink polish! This Sakura features a periwinkle blue base (that sometimes looks almost purple-ish) with red/green shimmer and some scattered holo. The base color of this one kept playing tricks on me and flipping between blue and purple, and all that red shimmer doesn’t help…regardless, this is a pretty and classic color combination. Again, the scattered holo effect isn’t showing up super well. In-person it is subtle but definitely present.

2-3 coats + top coat

Spotted Lady

Spotted Lady features a medium orchid purple base filled with red/green shifting shimmer. There’s nothing not to love about the colors of this one. Rich and vibrant and perfect for spring and maybe into summer as well.

My favorite of this quad is Spotted Lady. Glowy purples are classic for very good reason!

I really like how these four look all together! I always appreciate a cohesive set.
