Whoa, can you believe it’s almost Halloween already?? Polish makers are already releasing Halloween collections and I’m still stuck in January hahaha.
Anyway, Lyz Cosmetics is a new-to-me Aussie indie brand operating out of Melbourne. This collection was made in collaboration with @nerdybroccoli in releasing mascots representing the brand? I think! Haha it’s been a while since I’ve been on the swatching grind, but I definitely recommend visiting @lyzcosmetics on Instagram for proper info about their giveaways and deals.
Onto the polish!
Boo! I Sea You! is made up of blue and gold holo glitters in a clear base. I originally attempted reaching opacity with it on its own but the layers got a bit too thick around 3 coats for my liking. I ended up layering this over black and it applied very well in 1 coat plus top coat. The glitter was distributed pretty evenly. A few coats of top coat will be necessary to smooth the surface.
Mistress of the Dark is a purple chrome-like base with strong pink shimmer, particular in the sun. This was on the brushstroke-y side during application but it evened out when it dried. It’s also one of those foil-like polishes that show every ridge on your nail bed so I recommend base coat. This was 2-3 coats plus top coat.
Dead Partying Bride is made up of tiny blue and pink circle and silver diamond glitter in a shimmery pink base. The formula was on the thin side but easy to use. It took me 4 coats plus top coat in this swatch but definitely layer it over a similar base colour for a more opaque result.
Salem’s Eye is made up of gold holo glitters in a black jelly base. Formula was on the thicker side but easy to apply in 2-3 coats plus top coat. This is require a few coats of top coat to smooth out the surface as well.
And last up is Pumpkin Chunkin, a bright, and I mean bright neon orange with strong pink shimmer and small silver glitters. The formula was fantastic and fast-drying; good in 2 coats plus top coat.
For this week only, for any purchase of 2 or more of their polishes, Lyz Cosmetics is giving away a free Heart Crossed Lovers Chain Ring valued at $11.95. How fab is that!
