I only have 3 to show you tonight, the three Liquid Lacquers!  This set is a trio created specially for this giveaway.  Based on the beach, there are two linear holos and one glitter topper.  Let's check it out!

Bottle shots:

Teal Tails

Teal tails is a sea foam green linear holo that flashes teal.  As you'll be able to tell in the photos, it's a real chameleon.  Outside in the sun, it's a vibrant teal, but inside it's a soft sea foam.

Application was like a typical holo.  You have to be swift as you're painting each nail, or you may start to bald or drag.  Otherwise, the consistency was nice and only needed two to three coats for full opacity.

 Indoor lighting.

Dry time was average.  The holo is more noticeable in person than in the photos.

Stick a Fork in Me

I don't really do nudes often.  They don't look right with my skin tone, and I like vibrant and bright colors better.  However, as soon as I saw Stick a Fork in Me in person, it was love.  Fork is a nude linear holo with an orange flash.  Did you see that?  Orange.  Flash.  I've never seen any other nude holos with orange.  It works really well with the theme, too, as it reminds me of sunburned skin from too many hours on the beach.

Again, application was typical to a holo.  I didn't use an Aqua Base, though, but it didn't effect application or performance.

The orange flash is just gorgeous.  I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I wore this beauty.  Seriously unique and so in love!

Washed Ashore

Washed Ashore is a clear glitter topcoat that has teal, blue, gold, and caramel hexes and dots.

Washed ashore is the perfect glitter topper for these two holos.  Over Fork, it reminds me of the waves crashing on the beach, chock full of foam, bubbles, seashells, and other sea creatures.

Application was easy, the glitters were easy to get out of the bottle and easy to place.  Just a great and easy experience all around.

Over Teal Tails, it takes on a whole new look.  It reminds me of looking down into the ocean and seeing all the stuff floating in the sea.
