Hi Guys! Today I have the Lakodom Collection from Cadillacquer to share with you. This collection was made in collaboration with the the ladies behind Russian etailer Lakodom. Each polish is named after the lady it was created with which I think is pretty fun. I love the variety in the collection, there is a little something for everyone! Check out the swatches after the jump!
Alexandra is a dusty blue jelly base with bright blue glitter and violet shimmer. The glitter/shimmer in this shade is pretty subtle, you can see it indoors in regular lighting but outside in brighter lighting it tends to blend in with the base. The formula was good, it is a little sheer due to the jelly base but it built up easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
Anna is a magenta base with small holographic glitter throughout. The glitter is small but dense so the effect of it is really nice. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
Elena is a dusty raisin base with a scattered holo. The base of this polish is a really pretty shade, my skin tone pulled the purple out nicely but I think it might pull more brown on deeper skin tones. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had nice opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
Julia is a white crelly with holo glitter and golden shimmer. Contrary to how it looks in the photos this polish actually makes me look a little tan which I always appreciate. The formula was ok, it was easy to work with but I found it to be a bit patchy. I used 2 thin coats and 1 thick coat to get it even and opaque. This did dry down a little dull so you'll want to top coat it.
Kate is a dusty cherry red with a subtle scattered holo. The holo is pretty subtle in this one but visible in the sunlight. The formula was really nice, it was a good consistency and had nice opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
Katerina is a dark purple jelly with gold glitter. This is my personal favorite of the collection, these types of polishes are what originally drew me to Cadillacquer and they are what I look forward to with each collection. The formula was good, it was easy to apply but a little patchy on the first coat. It ended up evening out easily with the second coat. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
Polina is a bright sky blue base with silver flecks and shimmer. If not for Katerina this would have been my favorite, it just makes me happy to look at, plus it reminds me of an old No Doubt song :) The formula was good, it was a little thick in a way that made application easy. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.
