Leesha's Lacquer - Trans-Fab Transylvania Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**

Hi guys! Today I have a "new to me" indie brand to show you! Leesha's Lacquer is owned by Alicia out of Minnesota! Not sure how I missed this brand before, as she has been around for about a year and a half. She creates 5-Free, Cruelty Free and Vegan lacquers. Today I will be sharing her new collection, "The Trans-Fab Transylvania Collection", inspired by Rocky Horror Picture Show and it releases today!

We're All Lucky! is a deep burgundy creme that is gorgeous! It's not really what I'd call a duo or multi chrome, but it has several different colors sort of mixed up together (does that make sense?). It shows tones of burgundy, red and copper with a beautiful pinky/burgundy micro shimmer throughout.  I did two coats, plus topcoat. My husband liked this one a lot and said it reminded him of wood grain.

Rock-y Hard Abs is a stunning clear jelly base filled to the brim with gold micro shimmer and glitters, with a touch of holo sparkle! It's so pretty! Another great formula, needing just two coats, plus topcoat!

Janet! Brad! Rocky! is a clear jelly base filled with gold micro glitters, as well as sheer hex glitters in shades of pink, blue, red, green, yellow and lavender. This is my fav from the collection because it was a total surprise. The glitters are sheer, so the final look is really dependant upon what color base you use. Looking at the bottle I was expecting bolder, deeper glitter colors. I put this over a white base (OPI Angel with a Leadfoot) and they totally look like vibrant pastels. So cool. I think this is actually the first polish I own that has sheer glitter like this....

Dr. Lusecrue is another fab glitter topper. It is a clear jelly base filled with small, red hex glitters that at some angles flash a coppery orange color, as well as medium black hexes and a ton of teeny, silver holo hexes. Love! Here I did 2 thin coats over OPI You're So Vain-illa.

Blast from the Past is a blackened jelly base filled with lots of blue and lavender holo hex glitters. It's gorgeous! Here I did three thin coats, plus topcoat.

I loved this collection! One, because the formulas and colors were all awesome and Two, because it's Rocky Horror Picture Show inspired! Haha! I had no issues with any of the formulas, as well as no fishing for glitters...which is a big plus!

The Trans-Fab Transylvania Collection is available in Alicia's shop today at 6pm CST! Be sure to check her out for more information on on this and future collections!

Thanks for reading!
