Arcane Lacquer Differentia Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have most of the Differentia Collection from Arcane Lacquer to share with you. In total there are 6 polishes in the collection and I have 5 of them in this post today. These are all really gorgeous shimmers, a couple have a little something extra also! Check out the swatches after the jump!



Abandoned Labor is an olive green with orange/gold/pink shimmer and tiny flakes of iridescent glitter. Surprising no one, this is my favorite of the 5. I love a good green and a good green with good shimmer is something I can get behind. The formula was good, it was a touch sheer on the first coat but opaque with 2 coats. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Carnival of Souls is an inky dark blue with iridescent micro flakies and blue/green shimmer.  The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Disarm The Karma is a green leaning teal base with iridescent shards of glitter and golden shimmer. The shards of glitter can be difficult to work with if you get a big one on your nail/brush but with a little patience the polish is gorgeous on the nails. Aside from the shards being a little tricky this was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Shade

Harvest The Wounds is a red based purple with red shimmer and red/orange flakies. This is another favorite of mine in the collection, the shimmer stands out nicely and the flakies give it nice depth depending on the lighting you're in. The formula was good, it was a touch patchy on the first coat but completely opaque with the second coat. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Ocean of Apathy is a dark teal toned blue with blue/purple shimmer. This is similar to Carnival of Souls but the base colors are slightly different, the difference is more noticeable in person than in photos. The formula was really nice, it was a good consistency and had great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




The Differentia Collection from Arcane Lacquer is available at Color4Nails.com, each polish retails for $11.50
