Today I have the EDM collection from indie brand B Squared Lacquer to share with you - a collection of six bright and beautiful cremes!
B Squared Lacquer is another new-to-the-blog brand and I'm always excited to try things for the first time, especially when I've seen swatches all over Instagram. EDM of course stands for Electronic Dance Music, and the colours here fit perfectly with the theme!
The formulas are just on the right side of thick and apparently they're wonderful for water marbling (personally I hate doing water marbles but these just might tempt me) the first coat drags a little bit (as do a lot of neon formulas) but builds up pretty well. They dry to a waxy finish so I've added top coat - this also helps to smooth them over. You'll need between 2 and 3 coats depending on the way you apply. I haven't used a white base in any of my swatches, they're this bright all by themselves!
Down Tempo reflects it's name as this one isn't really neon, but more of a subtle blue that still manages to be bright (make sense?!) I've used 2 thick coats plus top coat
Kandi is a gorgeous bright hot pink, supremely summery and girly! I've used 2 thick coats plus top coat
The Drop is a minty neon green, the colour of this may vary slightly to what you see on your screen (green neons are notoriously difficult to capture!) but I think I've got close enough here. This needed an extra coat for perfect opacity. 3 coats plus top coat
Rave is an in-your-face highlighter yellow, SO crazily bright! 3 thin coats plus top coat
Plur is a more teal leaning shade than The Drop, but still beautifully bright. 3 thin coats plus top coat
Trance is a super duper bright neon peachy orange - it sent my camera a bit crazy! It picked up the brightness well though - just imagine it maybe a tad brighter in real life. This is my favourite of the bunch, I think this will be coming on holiday with me this year! 3 thin coats plus top coat
Have your eyes popped out of your head yet!? If you're looking for a set of summer brights then you've found it in these polishes, and the nail art possibilities are endless! What do you think, do you dare to wear polish as bright as Rave and Trance?
