Alchemy Lacquers Winter Essentials Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! For today I have Alchemy Lacquers' Winter Essentials Collection, full of flakes, shimmer and holo, all beautifully done. These will be released December 15th in Alchemy Lacquers shop!

Alchemy Lacquers Evergreen
Three coats
Dark green jelly base with green/teal/blue ultra-chrome flakes, iridescent flakes and scattered holo
A glorious dark and gilded green. Not quite opaque in two coats, but three covers all the patches. 



Alchemy Lacquers Gilded Poinsettia
Three coats
Gold flake in jelly base with gold/silver shifting shimmer and  holo red, gold, and green glitter
A perfectly done holiday season polish. The gold is bright and shiny without being brassy. The base is somewhat sheerish but opaque enough with three thin coats. A ridge builder base coat may be good to start out with if you prefer to use less coats. 




Alchemy Lacquers Lump of Coal
Three coats
Black jelly base with black holo and iridescent micro-glitter and ultra-chrome flakes
A charcoal base, reminiscent of coal, but with all those flakes and glitter and holo added, it is full of sparkle and color. 




Alchemy Lacquers Moon Snow
Two coats
White with blue/violet/teal ultra-chrome flakes and holographic pigment
The softened white is lovely with the ultra-chrome flakes and their flashes of blue and violet and teal. This has a thicker creme formula and is more opaque, with coverage in two coats. 




Alchemy Lacquers Sugar Plums
Three coats
Magenta jelly base with blue shimmer and iridescent color-shifting glitter
A bright and flashy magenta to add to the mix. It's truly as vivid in person as my photos show it as. 




Alchemy Lacquers Tinsel 
Layered over Cirque Colors McKittrick
Clear base with iridescent gold/green/orange flakes
More flakes! This time as a topper with a green/gold shift. You will get a good amount of coverage with one coat, which is how I have it shown as below. 





(With Matte Topcoat)


Alchemy Lacquers Andromeda
Two coats
Violet to orange duo-chrome with scattered holo and teal/blue/purple ultra-chrome flakes
Part of the Moon Shard series.
Deeply purple with flashes of orange, though the color-shift is more subtle on the nail.
