Christmas Swap Package from Galactic Lacquer + Swatches/Review


During the month of December, there were SO many sales that I can’t even count them on one hand. There was one such sale where trios and sets of butter Londons were available for excellent prices! I scored one trio of polishes and one trio of Lippys, but there was one in the trio of polishes that I already had, and the same situation arose with Galactic Lacquer, so we arranged a swap and decided to add extras and goodies! SO.MUCH.FUN. I had lots of fun picking up random goodies and polishes for Galactic Lacquer.

So, here’s my haul from Galactic Lacquer minus a few extras (candies, stuffed bear for my son, etc.) + swatches!!!!



First up are the Milanis! They were all on my wishlist, and Galactic Lacquer sneaked a peek and surprised me with the prettiest of the bunch! 🙂

Lavender Fizz is a gorgeous lavender glitter mix that reminds me of grape soda, probably the reason it has that name! It’s bubbly and delicious! It took 2 coats to be opaque, which isn’t bad at all.


Pink Flare is an amazing light pink glitter with holographic sparkle thrown in. So pretty! It boasts to be a one coat glitter, but it needed 2 coats. Not bad, though!



Silver Dazzle was a pretty pewter grey glitter and took 2 coats, as well.



Gold Glitz is a gold and copper glitter blend that needed 2 coats, too.



I was really excited about these two from the recent Holiday Joy collection! Beautiful red and beautiful glitter mix.

Red Satin was really satin-like and such a gorgeous red! I’m sure I have this color in my collection, but who can have enough reds? Not this girl.



Pure Joy really gave me pure joy because it’s such a pretty glitter that would look amazing with a LBD (Little Black Dress). I layered this over Red Satin. As you can see 1 coat did quite a number, so this could very well be opaque by itself.




This is what the whole swap was really initially for, but since it was around Christmas Time, we really made it more of a Christmas gift! Black Knight has been on my wishlist FOR.EV.ER. It’s just as gorgeous as I imagined, and it surprised me in a good way by being a 2 coater. It’s extremely thirsty for a top coat, however, so you will need 2 coats of top coat.



I also decided to matte it because it looked like it would be amazing matte, too. Was I wrong? No. It does look fab.


I love ALL of these! Which ones are your favorites?

A BIG THANK YOU to Galactic Lacquer!!
