Ethereal Lacquer, Kathleen & Co., Nailed It!, PR, Stardust

*Disclosure: PR samples- I received these polishes free of charge in exchange for photography.*

Sale period: 25-28 August 2020

This month’s Stardust collaboration sees Nailed It! join Ethereal and Kathleen & Co. for a harvest moon-inspired box.

Ethereal: Lunar Spell

Ethereal’s contribution Lunar Spell features an inky dark base with red/gold/green shifting shimmer. The blue tones of the base are very subtle, and if you apply three coats the base color will probably just look like a plain black. For this reason I recommend trying to apply this polish in two coats, so some of the blue color is retained. The formula is a bit thick, so you may want to add some thinner.

Kathleen & Co.: Harvest Sky

Kathleen & Co.’s contribution Harvest Sky is a multichrome that shifts magenta/red/gold. Overall the colors of this multichrome are brighter and livelier in real life than they are photographing, although the gold shift at the far end was still relatively muted. I think the color palette of this polish is very fall-appropriate.

Nailed It!: Dark Side of the Moon

Guest maker Nailed It’s contribution is Dark Side of the Moon, a teal blue jelly base loaded with orange/gold/green shifting shimmer. The shimmer here is bordering on microflake, so the overall effect is very sparkly and dynamic. The base color is blue-toned, but all of the shimmer leans the polish as a whole definitively green.

The coverage at two coats was really good, but I added a third coat to completely cover my nail line.
