Goombay Gal Nail Lacquer8:59 AM
Hello there my fellow nail crazies!
Been a bit MIA the past few days, been quite the busy bee outside of the nail world. Had friends visiting for a few days and then I stupidly got a really bad sunburn and couldn't really move for a good 24 hours, oops! I am legot burnt shoulders to toes, I cant believe I allowed myself to burn the way I did, I never not wear sunscreen *puts head down in shame*
Anyways, I have a bunch of swatches to share with you that I did last week for Goombay Gal Nail Lacquer. I have swatched for her awhile back so when she approached me to review again I was extremely excited since I know that she makes great thermals which has recently become my new obsession! She sent me 6 thermals and 1 glitter topper. Lets get right into it.
First up is Flag Vomit. Flag Vomit is a clear glitter topper with red, white and blue glitters, including white stars and bows. I used the sponge method to apply this glitter and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. Very little fishing was needed, all but the bows came out without a problem. This reminded me of a big bag of patriotic confetti. A fun glitter polish.
Next is Red Red Wine. Red Red Wine is a deep red thermal that changes to an even deeper red when warm and contains ultrafine glitter. I used 3 thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. This pretty color reminded me of a soda/pop drink like Dr.Pepper or Cherry Coke. Formula was great and applied smoothly.
Third is Holy Holo. Holy Holo is a silver to purple scattered holo thermal polish. It changes from a light purple almost silver to a purple. I applied 3 coats to achieve about 90% opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. Formula was good and applied evenly. I really like the color of this polish. But for the life of me I couldn't get it to change color enough to notice it in photos but I am planning on trying it again soon.
Fourth is Lotty Dotty. Lotty Dotty is a peach to pinkish white thermal with blue, purple and pink glitters. I used 3 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. The formula itself was good but a lot of fishing was needed for the glitters. I really loved the color combo of this polish.
Next is Perry Winked. Perry Winked is a light purple to an even lighter purple thermal and contains baby blue and pink glitters. I used 3 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. Again like the polish above the formula was good but the glitters were very hard to get out of the bottle. I addressed this with the creator and she said she will be adding more glitters to the polishes that go out to customers. Purple is my color so of course this one was one of my favorites color wise.
I have a macro for this but my camera kept turning the light purple tips a pinkish color which is not at all what it looks like in person so I'm not going to bother sharing it because it would be accurate.
Next is Bahamian Breeze. Bahamian Breeze is a thermal that changes from white to an aqua blue and contains tiny dark blue holo glitters. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. The formula was really good and there was no fishing needed for glitters. This was also one of my favorites from this set. Definitely a great polish for summer.
Last up is Apricot Sunrise. Apricot Sunrise is a pastel yellow to orange thermal that contains pink and purple tiny holo glitters. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with Glossy Glam top coat. Formula and consistency was just like Bahamian Breeze, really good and no fishing. This is my favorite out of all the polishes in this set. I love the dramatic thermal change and the color combo makes it fun and bright, perfect for summer.
Overall I give this set a 4 out of 5 stars. All formulas were really good and went on great but a few of them did need a lot of fishing for the glitters. You can get most of these polishes now in her shop now but some are not released yet so follow Goombay Gal on instagram for release dates!
Until next time!
