First Impression Friday: Anchor & Heart Lacquer

Happy Friday! Today for First Impression Friday I have a few polishes from a relatively new brand called Anchor & Heart Lacquer! I saw swatches of a few of their polishes on Instagram and added them my need to try list a little bit ago. They were having a sale around the 4th of July so I took that opportunity to grab a few polishes I had been looking at!

I placed my order on 7/2/16 and received everything on 7/7/16, considering that they were having a sale, it was a holiday weekend and I live on the other side of the country from the maker, I'm pretty impressed with that turn around time! The polishes arrived packed in a beautifully stamped box and wrapped beautifully (picture at the end of the post!), there was also a business card and super cute magnet included. Overall A+ packaging!

Check out what I got after the jump!

The Motivator is a minty green holo with green shimmer and silver holo micro glitter. I didn't end up loving this one as much as I thought I would but luckily the other 2 I picked up made up for that! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply. It was a bit sheer but it built easily. I used 3 coats for the photos below.

The Stubborn is a blue base loaded with blue shimmer and ultra chrome flakies. I honestly don't think I will ever get tired of polishes like this, ultra chrome flakies will never stop being pretty. The formula was good, it was also a good consistency and easy to apply but a bit sheer. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

Wherever I'm With You is a red tone purple with blue shimmer and ultra chrome flakies. This polish is the one that made me push that checkout button, and it sure didn't disappoint! The formula was good, it was a little sheer but it built easily and was easy to apply. It was opaque at 2 coats but I found that a third coat deepened the color a little so thats what I end up wearing.

For those wondering about how adorable the packaging was, here is a photo for ya (brought to you by my paper towels,some wheat thins and my ugly old countertop haha). I forgot to take a real photo of this but luckily I had a screenshot from snapchat that I took to post on twitter.

Here is the little glittery teardrop shaped magnet also, I have to say, I LOVE getting magnets from indies. It makes me happy when I get an order and there is a magnet in it. I have a little corner on my fridge that is all indie brand magnets haha!

Overall I'm pretty darn impressed with Anchor & Heart and will definitely be buying from the brand again in the future! You can find Anchor & Heart Lacquer on etsy by clicking here
