Envy Lacquer Sugar Skull collection swatch and review

Hey lovelies!

Ready for some swatch spam? I have Envy Lacquer's Sugar Skull collection to show you all.  The Sugar Skull collection will be released this Saturday October 17. Collection consists of 6 polishes; Illuminacion, Careta, Golletes, Ofrenda, Papel Picado, and Calacas. This collection is based on Dia De Los Muertos also known as Day of The Dead. 

First let me give you some short definitions for the meanings of the names and then we'll get to the swatches so please stay with me.

Illuminacion:
Is a ceremony that takes place in the cemetery. Candles are lit to guide souls to their altars.

Careta:
A mask worn by dancers at the end of the celebrations to scare the dead back to their resting places.

Calacas:
Skeleton figures that represent death.

Golletes:
Doughnut shaped bread with pink colored sugar which is placed as an offering.

Papel Picado:
Colorful tissue paper cut out with different designs.

Ofrenda:
An offering which are altars with all kinds of goods for when the souls come back from the dead to visit their loved ones.

I'm really excited to show you guys this collection. So let's get started.

Sugar Skull collection from Envy Lacquer

First up is Illuminacion: This is an off white with tons of iridescent glitters and silver shimmer. I did three thin coats plus Seche Vite top coat. This one is the sheerest from the collection but it's gorgeous!

Formula on all these is amazing. It stays where you put it, dries quick but still gives you time to work with it. Waiting in between coats is best to prevent it from pulling previous coat. I loved every single one and it made me sad to take them off! I don't think my pictures are doing any of these justice! 

Will you be getting these for yourself? 

These will be available this Saturday on envylacquer.com retailing for $9.99 each.
