Lorelei Lacquer - The Legend of Flakies Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the newest upcoming collection from Jeanine at Lorelei Lacquer! This is a four-polish collection that is inspired by The Legend of Zelda! I think Jeanine's name The Legend of Flakies is awesome! Hehe! 
If you want to see them, then just keep reading!

Heart Container is a medium toned, dusty pink holo filled with red metallic flakies! Such a beautiful color! My photos are coming off a tad brighter than I think it appears in person. To me it was a bit more "dusty" looking. For my photos I did two coats plus topcoat!

Zelda's Lullaby is an amazing  dusty blue violet/periwinkle holo filled with pink to purple flakies, with hints of gold to green! Gah! So gorgeous! This one was also just two coats plus topcoat!

Hey! Listen! is a light gray crelly base loaded with blue shimmer and flakies, as well as royal blue and fuchsia holo hex glitters! Such a fun little mix! This one was a bit thin on the first coat, but builds up really nicely. For me it was opaque in three thin coats!

Hero of the Day is my favorite of the collection! If you'd asked me what one of my fav polish colors was a few years would not have been it. Well fast forward and today I freaking love it! This is gorgeous! It is a green crelly base filled with green shimmer and copper to green chrome flakies! Mmmmmm! This one was also just two coats plus topcoat!

Also included were two sets of vinyls created by Vinyl It Up/Midwest Lacquer! 10 Triforce vinyls and 2 Lorelei logo vinyls! (I was in a car accident and broke my arm, so I did not get a chance to use them yet, but they are super cute and I will put them to use soon!) Lizzie of Vinyl It up Up really nailed Lorelei Lacquer's logo perfectly! 
With the broken arm and stress of the week, I of course forgot to take pics of them....ugh!
If you'd like to see the vinyls up close, as well as in use on a mani, I recommend checking out Becky aka Naked Without Polish's review

I loved this entire collection! The colors h ave the perfect "dustiness" to make them feel more Fall-like and the formulas were awesome!

Available in full size only, on Lorelei Lacquers website September 1st at 12:01AM CST!
