Black Cat Lacquer Review #3

10:25 PM

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, MY LOVLIES!!! I hope you all are having a wonderful and safe Halloween so far! I can't believe it will be November tomorrow! This year has flown by!

I have yet another Black Cat Lacquer polish for you today (and there are still 2 more to show you after this). This is one of my favorites from their "Party Monster" (It's not what the collection is called, but it's what I call it because all 5 of them scream the movie) collection. It's one of those softer, not-so-in-your-face but still catches your eye glitter top coats. 

Black Cat Lacquer - Eye Candy


Eye Candy is a clear base with large matte red square glitter, medium matte purple hex glitter, and multiple shapes and sizes of pale blue glitter. The pale blue glitter isn't holo and it isn't matte, it's got this soft shine to it, but that's all. The combination is just lovely. You look at the bottle and all the pale blue is so etherial then you hit the red and the purple and it just kicks you out of your dream. It's definitely two-faced and I love it! 


Left to right: 1 coat, 2 coat, 3 coats


It was smooth and easy to work with. I had to fish for red glitter, but the blue and purple had no problems attaching to the brush. No fighting for them to place on my nail. 


This is 3 coats of Eye Candy. 


Left to right: Cult Nails - Nevermore, Essie - Mezmerised, Max Makeup Cherimoya - Matte.n.a - Matinee, L'Oreal - Paparazzi Pleaser and Nicole by OPI - All Kendall-ed Up.


This is 1 coat of Eye Candy over 1 coat of Cult Nails - Nevermore. All that is missing here is 1-2 red squares. They were just so hard to get out. This would have looked amazing had I have been able to get some of all the glitter on there. This was still a great combination to show off Eye Candy, it just needed that other addition.


This is 1 coat of Eye Candy over 2 coats of Essie - Mezmerized. Mezmerised didn't do a single favor for Eye Candy. I thought the dark blue would make the pale blue pop a bit more and I was just completely disappointed in the whole thing. And, yet again, no red squares. 


This is 1 coat of Eye Candy over 2 coats of Max Makeup Cherimoya - Matte.n.a - Matinee. Once again, I love glitter top coats over matte polishes. Especially matte WHITE polishes! I loved how the pale blue glitter looked over the white. Still, some red squares would have looked amazing on here. They were so tricky trying to fish for, so I gave up. 


This is 1 coat of Eye Candy over 2 coats of L'Oreal - Paparazzi Pleaser. I totally picked the wrong purple to pair with Eye Candy. Paparazzi Pleaser is gorgeous, but too dark. I didn't like this because the purple glitter didn't show up at all. 


This is 1 coat of Eye Candy over 2 coats of Nicole by OPI - All Kendall-ed Up. I can honestly say that I think the only reason this combination works is because, once again, the red glitter stayed in the bottle. However, the purple and pale blue looks great over the hot pink! 

Despite the issues with the red glitter, I really do love Eye Candy. The colors are so well put together, the formula was great and so easy to work with. I am going to definitely going to continue to use this and try to get those red glitters to come out and play! 

You can get Eye Candy and several others on Black Cat Lacquer's ETSY shop for $9 a bottle. Trust me, you'll want to snag some of these beauties!! You can also keep track of news and swatches on Black Cat Lacquer's Facebook page
