Crazy 4 Crellies - #CrellyCrate (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have a super fun NEW box to share with you! The #CrellyCrate features five brands coming together to share their love for crellies by creating polishes that are limited edition to this box! Don't know what a crelly is? It's basically a mix between an opaque creme polish and a sheerer jelly polish. When combined it creates a magical formula that is still pretty opaque, but also squishy and allows for glitters to show through in layers. 


Pretty & Polished

Hoosier Horizon, inspired by the Indiana sunsets, is a gorgeous sky blue crelly filled with tiny white and aqua hex glitters, as well as medium sized hex glitters in shades of yellow, orange, red, lavender and navy. This applied really smooth and required no fishing. Here I did two coats plus topcoat! (This will be a little more difficult to remove due to the glitters)


Love, Angeline

Sunset on the Rockies is a beautiful deep burnt orange crelly, almost on the edge of being red. It's filled with golden microflakes that really give it a lot of depth! You can see in the macro how it gives off little hints of purple too! This one had a perfect formula as well and was two coats plus topcoat!


Dollish Polish

Island Sun-fetti is a really pretty baby pink crelly filled with matte square and hex glitters in pink, purple, blue, yellow, coral, and orange! Such a fun mix! Another fabulous formula! Here I did two coats plus topcoat! Again, applied smooth, no glitter fishing and took a little more effort to remove due to the glitters.


Lolita Lacquer 

Noche de Verano, which translates to Summer Night is a gorgeous medium purple crelly filled with metallic hex glitters in various sizes and in the colors of pinks, blues and purples! Fantastic, smooth formula that was opaque for me in two coats plus topcoat; depending on your application you may need a third. No fishing required here either!


The Polish Bar

Rainbow Ice is a beautiful white crelly filled with silver holo micro glitters, as well as a a rainbow of glitters in various shapes and sizes. This is inspired by the yummy Hawaiian shaved ice! For my photos I did three thin coats plus topcoat!

Are you a crelly lover? I am! The #CrellyCrate will be avalable for pre-order June 4th through June 9th in Lolita Lacquers shop for $50 + shipping (US and Canada only!
