Lorelei Lacquer Neon Sunset Collection Swatch and Review and Giveaway

**Press Samples**
I am beyond in love with the collection I get to show you all today. I've been a Beach Boys fan since I was little. When Lorelei Lacquer hinted that she was making a collection inspired by Kokomo, I jumped for joy! The song, as annoying as it might be, really puts you in a wonderful mood. And not only was the song inspired by Kokomo, it was inspired by the Muppets music video for the song. This just takes me back and makes me happy on a whole other level!

Not only do I have swatches of Lorelei Lacquer's Neon Sunset Collection, but, at the end of the post, I have a mini set to giveaway. 

Now, I've included the video so you can listen to it as you're reading through the post.

Aruba is described as "a jungle green holo".
Shown is two coats of Aruba.
Aruba is definitely more of a teal than a jungle green. Jungle green I imagine to have a bit more emerald than aqua in it. Either way, the color is perfection! Fully opaque in two coats. Beautiful formula.

Jamaica is described as "a golden, sunshine yellow holo".
Shown is two coats of Jamaica.
Jamaica is one of those perfect shades of yellow that would look good on any skin tone. It has a hint of mustard to it. Perfect formula, smooth application. If you're one who is skeptical about yellows, this is your polish. Can't go wrong!

I Wanna Take You
I Wanna Take You is described as "a white crelly with turquoise and teal matte glitter, and metallic magenta flakes".
Shown is three coats of I Wanna Take You.
I Wanna Take You took me and did naughty things to me. I am a white crelly fan, and this polish is perfection! The color combination of the glitter is spot on and work well together. Combine that to the fantastic application and I dare you not to fall in love with this polish.

Bermuda is described as "a royal blurple holo".
Shown is two coats of Bermuda.
To me, Bermuda is a perfect cobalt blue. No blurple about it. Either way, this was the first polish that caught my eye when I got this collection unwrapped. It has a way of drawing you in and keeping your focus on it. Her creams are beyond fantastic. They pretty much apply themselves. There's no saying no to this beauty.

Bahama is described as "a true coral holo".
Shown is two coats of Bahama.
Bahama is no joke. It is THE perfect coral cream mixed with holo. If you're one of those hoarders of all things coral colored, this MUST be your next purchase. I'm completely in love with this one and I'm not a coral crazy person.

Pretty Mama
Pretty Mama is described as "a baby pink crelly with matte sky blue and purple glitter, and pink-blue micro flakies".
Shown is three coats of Pretty Mama.
I may be a sucker for white crellies, but Pretty Mama is pretty amazing. I love the color combination. It is truly a unique beauty, and from such a new indie brand. Fantastic formula and application.

Key Largo
Source: mapsofworld
Key Largo is described as "a goldenrod holo".
Shown is two coats of Key Largo.
Jamaica is more of a goldenrod than Key Largo is, but this tangerine color is beautiful! It will definitely get you in the tropical mood and make you want a frilly drink in your hand immediately!

Montego is described as "a radiant orchid holo".
Shown is two coats of Montego.
Orchid may be last year's color of the year, but Montego lets you know the color is NOT gone. It is anything but. Vibrant and beautiful, the only thing missing is the actual smell of orchids.

Kokomo is described as "a creamy brown holo with a golden bronze flash and purple fleck".
Shown is two coats of Kokomo.
Kokomo is the perfect milk chocolate shade of brown. It's not one of those shades of brown that is a complete turn off. Then you add the bronze shimmer and that purple fleck and this polish is elevated to the max! A must have!

There you go! The Neon Sunset Collection. If you ask me, the entire collection is a must have. You can get it for $80 ($8 discount from if you bought each bottle separately) or they range from $9 to $10 each. The formulas are as perfect as they come. Like I said before, the creams practically apply themselves. I would be blown away by these polishes no matter what, but I'm impressed that these came from such a new brand. It's just unheard of. Lorelei Lacquer went above and beyond with these and completely nailed it.

I admit that I really don't like the beach boys! Spending a lot of time near Santa Cruz makes you a little resentful towards some songs!
