It's Friday! I think that calls for a fun, sparkly nail polish. So today I have just that for you. Ladies and Gentlemen feast your eyes upon Lumina Lacquers Soleil.
A golden micro glitter polish that is extremely holographic. Soleil is the sister polish to Maleficent and Silver Springs! While all 3 polishes are beautiful, Soleil is my favorite, and the only one I own from the trio. In fact, I fell in love with this polish and found myself hitting the purchase button before I was half way through reading the review from Imperfectly Painted.
The application was pretty good for a glitter polish. I was able to get lots of glitter on the brush and it flowed smoothly. If you're one to apply thin coats you will need 3 or 4 to reach full opacity. The glitter likes to move around on the nail with thinner coats. But if you're like me and tend to do thicker layers you can get away with 2.
Soleil does dry to a rougher texture and is top coat hungry. I used 2 layers of top coat to get a nice smooth finish.
Even though I absolutely love this polish wearing it alone as a full manicure can be a bit much so I decided to add some stamping on top. I used my new Winstonia plate W-04 and Finger Paints Black Expressionism for this design.
Please forgive the picture quality, I took it with my cell phone after being at a BBQ all day. And my flash may have gone off, but you get to see just how sparkly Soleil is this way. I get bonus points for that right.
What do you think of Soleil? This might just be the first polish I've purchased that I want to get a backup for. I can see myself using this all the time as an accent nail, or for nail art. Also, did you notice I use bigger pictures in this post? I'd love to hear your thoughts on that too. Should I stick with this size or go back to my original size?
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
