Alchemy Lacquers Cupid, Gilded Orchid, and Love Potion No. 9: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hello! I have a new-to-me brand for you all today. Alchemy Lacquers is a brand that has been on my radar for a while and I finally succumbed and purchased Triton a couple of months back (which I loved). So when I was excited to have the chance to review some new polishes from this line. I received these three polishes, all themed around Valentine's Day. And if you like what you see, they are available right now in Alchemy Lacquers shop!

Alchemy Lacquers Cupid
Two coats
White creme with red to pink color-shifting shimmer, purple/magenta/pink/gold ultra-chrome flakes and holographic pigment
Cupid has struck me, for I am in love with this polish.
LOL so yeah that was written and I know, you all are just shaking your heads at me for uttering such sap. But come one now! Can you blame me? How gorgeous is this? The shimmer is lust worthy and the added holo is the cherry. Application was a tad thick but not problematic.

Alchemy Lacquers Gilded Orchid
Three coats
Dusky lilac with gold to silver metallic shimmer and various magenta, fuchsia, and red holographic glitter
I like how the red and magenta contrasts with the purple/pink base. And the shimmer is way intense, giving it a very metallic look. This needed an extra third coat for complete coverage and a generous layer of topcoat to smooth it all out.

Alchemy Lacquers Love Potion No. 9
Two coats
Holographic shimmer base with hot pink and pink/magenta/green ultra-chrome flakes plus pink metallic and holographic micro-glitter
This comes with a sheet of red heart nail vinyls stickers. This is also part of the Potions Collection and will be a limited edition polish, available only for the month of February. 
My oh my, this is a stunner of a polish. So. Much. Going. On. and I love it! It is on the thick side but two careful coats gave me opaque coverage.
