A while ago I was contacted by the lovely Madeleine from Cadillacquer, asking if I'd like to swatch and review her first collection. Despite being naturally slightly apprehensive about the quality of newer less-established brands, I couldn't resist her pretty polishes and said yes. Boy, am I ever glad I did; these polishes were all such a pleasant surprise!
Read on after the jump for more on all nine polishes! :)
Formulas first, since they were all similar; all of these polishes are either jelly or milky crelly bases with glitter. Each one applied like a creme polish, with effortless even glitter distribution. I was so impressed!
All photos show each polish topped with one coat of LaCC 2013 top coat.
Remember Me is a "mint green shimmer base with small silver glitter, small fuchsia glitter and fuchsia dots". You're seeing two coats. So cute!
Morning Comes, a "light blue base with small white glitter, small periwinkle glitter and bigger periwinkle hex glitter". This is three coats, as the base was a little on the thin side. Love this periwinkle colour!
The Dark... Whatever is a "sheer blue/grey base with small black, small iridescent and bigger blue hex glitter". Three coats for this one, because the lovely deep jelly base is a bit sheer.
Where Is Carl? is a "white base with blue shimmer, small and bigger ocean blue holo glitter and small dark blue glitter". Three coats for this, such a cute spring polish!
I Wish I Was The Moon is a "blue base with iridescent square and hex glitter and very small purple iridescent glitter". Two coats here, this one was the only one that needed a little manipulation. Totally worth it though, aren't those iridescent glitters stunning?
Dollhouse is a "light pink base with different sized silver glitter, rose square glitter and rose dots". Three coats here. I really like this delicate feminine polish, but unfortunately this shade isn't too flattering on my skin tone.
9 Crimes is a "grey/purple base color with gold shimmer and various sized silver glitter". Three perfect coats here. Absolutely love the shimmer in this, SO beautiful!!
Cute Poison is a "smoky green base with black square glitter and small pink holo, green and fuchsia glitter". This one is another three-coater. I just love this glitter mix, it's so funky and different! Definitely another favourite!
So, what do you think? My favourites would have to be Easy As Pie, 9 Crimes, and Cute Poison. Which ones are your favourites? :)
These polishes are available through the Cadillacquer Etsy shop, and keep up to date with new releases on Facebook! I've only included one photo of each polish so as to keep this post within a reasonable length, but lots more photos are available on both Facebook and Etsy.
