Swatch & Review: Blush Lacquer – C4N Exclusives and Polish Con LE Trio & Exclusive


Well yesterday was the first day of school for my kids and as any parent will tell you, the first day means homework. But not for the kids, oh no, but for the parents. My kids came home excited to tell me about my their day and I dreaded hearing the 6 words they were all bound to utter, ‘you have stuff to fill out.’

So there Jason and I sat, filling out information worksheets, Get to Know My Child forms and What You Can Expect This Year packets. So as my high-schooler told me about how crowded the cafeteria is during his lunch time and my 5th grader asked me what she should put in her ‘All About Me’ bag and the 1st grader squealed with excitement over how cool recess was, there I was signing my life away; you would have thought I was buying a car…lol.

Anyway, I thought you might want to know about my evening on yesterday, and although I missed them being home with me, I was excited to get my house back! From 9-2, there was peace and quite!

The quite was short lived as I delved into these 6 polishes from Victoria at Blush Lacquer. We have a lot to cover today, so hopefully you have paper and pen ready to take notes. Today I have 2 C4N (Color 4 Nails) Exclusives and the Polish Con LE Trio but that’s not all, I also have the Polish Con Exclusive!!!

“The Magician’s Trick Limited Edition Trio” – inspired by the three acts of a magic trick. These are also loosely based on the Christopher Nolan film “The Prestige”.

The Pledge

A lavender base with a red shimmer and scattered holo. The beginning or first act called “The Pledge” where the magician shows you something ordinary.

The Turn

A plum base with a brown shimmer and scattered holo. The middle or second act called “The Turn” where the magician takes the ordinary something and turns it into something extraordinary.

The Prestige

A deep purple base with a coppery-bronze shimmer and scattered holo. And finally, “The Prestige” the third and most difficult act, where the magician brings it back, because it isn’t enough to just make something disappear, right?

Availability: Saturday, September 23rd at Polish Con. (These will only be available after Polish Con on our website if there are leftovers. No plans to restock these or send them to stockists)

Overall Thoughts – Blush Lacquer – C4N and Polish Con

Formula / Application: no issues to report. formula is easy to apply and builds up well in 2-3 coats. Although the finishes on these polishes vary from holo and flakes to holo and shimmer, I didn’t experience any dragging or pooling at the cuticle/side walls. The dry time is quick and even after 3 coats, the build up is not thick.

Opacity: 3 coats

Price: see above

Availability: see above

Overall: All 6 of these polishes are great and if not planning to attend PC, please make sure you have a mule to pick up the Trio and the Exclusive, you don’t want to leave it to chance that they will be available after.
