Garden Path Lacquers | Floriography Collection

(Press Sample)
Hello sweeties! I have a beautiful collection to share with you today. This is the 'Floriography Collection' by Garden Path Lacquers, formally known as Lollipop Posse Lacquer. This is their re-branding launch collection and I think the theme fit perfect with the new name since each of these polishes are named after the secret Victorian language of flowers. This collection is in three parts that is designed to inspire truth in the communication of your intentions and recognition of the strongest aspects of your true self. Read on for more photos, info and live swatches!
*All photos are taken indoors under 30W Daylight Bulbs.
*I angle my hand in direct lighting as well as low lighting to capture as many of the shifts as I am able.
*All photos shown with a fast dry top coat unless otherwise stated.

Garden Path Lacquers-Matricaria
(Chamomile)

Described as a a calming, cool gray matte satin. In the language of flowers, chamomile is used to represent perseverance through adversity and healing. The flower is known for its many curative properties, and is typically brewed in tea and consumed in order to allow your body and mind to rest and renew. Wear this shade to inspire your best physical and mental self and to see you through times of hardship or difficulty.

Shown here in 2 coats, plus top coat. Formula was good and applied well. If you have more of a free edge than I do then you may need 3 coats for full opacity. Dries smoothly with no texture. This is a matte polish but you can always add a glossy for a whole new look!


Garden Path Lacquers-Clematis

Described as an incredibly lush, saturated blurple matte satin. The clematis is a flower known for its ability to climb walls and trellises, and in doing so, represents cleverness and ingenuity. Wear this shade to remember that you always have the ability to find your way up and through difficult terrain.

Garden Path Lacquers-Lathyrus Odoratus

(Olive)

Described as a rich, blue-leaning teal crelly filled with red/orange/green/gold shifting shimmer and holographic microflakes. The olive branch is commonly known to represent peace and reconciliation.

Ferns represent a fascinating duality; they grow in wet areas, yet their leaves repel water. In this vein, ferns are used to represent magic. Wear this shade to remember the true and powerful magic that is held within your heart.

(Forget-Me-Not)
