Summer Sorbet Gradient with The Lacquer Lab Miami Collection

Since my first review, The Lacquer Lab have been busy making a name for themselves and bestowing lovely new collections upon us! The Miami collection is new for Summer 2014, and I've used 4 polishes from the collection for this nail art look.

I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (my go-to gradient base) then I sponged on a gradient using Roller Babin', Ocean Drive and SoBe. I topped it off with the crowning star of the collection, Dressed To Kill - a super sparkly mix of iridescent flakes and micro glitter in a clear base. I used 2 thin coats.

Dressed to Kill is the perfect compliment to the gradient! I've also swatched the other shades featured here

Roller Babin' is a sweet sugary pink creme, perfect in 2 coats.

SoBe (a nickname for Miami's South Beach!) is a creamy pastel yellow which still manages to be quite bright! 2 coats here 

Ocean Drive is a baby blue pastel. The formula here was a little thinner than the others and I needed 3 coats, but it's easily buildable.

Also available in this collection is Kickin' It

Another lovely collection from The Lacquer Lab, if you haven't given them a try yet I recommend that you do! Cruelty free, 5-free and British made, what's not to like?!


Available now from www.thelacquerlab.com, priced £7 each or £29 for the full collection (5 bottles)



  1. Amazing nails! How do you reach such a beautiful shape? I have tried recently but I wasn’t successful.

  2. The gradient you created is so pretty and the colours blend together so well! I think Ocean Drive is my favourite! :)

  3. Love your gradient and that topper is fantastic!

  4. The gradient and that topper were made for each other <3

  5. Great colors! Love the gradient with this glitter!

  6. Your gradient is so pretty!

  7. I love it! Looks good enough to eat. I'm doing the 31 day nail art challenge right now, and just did rainbow nails inspired by these <3
