I have my very first Too Fancy Lacquer to show off to y'all today! I was lucky enough to get a bottle of this beauty because I came up with the name! The name is a play on the word Arcadia. Arcadia is one of the regional units in Greece. It takes it's name from the mythological Arcas. In European Renaissance Arts Arcadia was celebrated as an "unspoiled harmonious wilderness". Since this shade is the hot color of the year, Radiant Orchid, Orchadia was born. :)
Orchadia: an orchid purple linear holographic polish with periwinkle flakies.
Shown as 2 coats, topped with HK Girl.
Those gorgeous little flakies were almost impossible to capture on camera, and honestly I didn't realize they were there while I was polishing. The color combo is a subtle one but very effective. When I was polishing I was thinking I had a clumpy batch, I have very crappy lighting for polishing in my living room so I couldn't see what it was. When I got into regular light and then into my light box....WOW! Those "little clumps" transformed before my eyes into beautiful hidden gems. They add depth to this already beautiful polish. The holo is pretty strong too, these pictures were all taken in my light box since the sun wasn't cooperating with me, so imagine how intense it would be in sunlight! Fully opaque in 2 coats and application was lovely, self leveling, no flooding or dragging and dry time was great. I definitely need to add more of this brand to my collection!
