Top Shelf Lacquer Tropical Cocktail Paradise Collection Swatches & Review

Monday, July 6, 2015

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend! One of my favs, Top Shelf Lacquer, has TWO collections releasing July 15th. This is The Tropical Cocktail Paradise Collection! It consists of 6 vibrant bright crèmes filled with iridescent micro flakes of a contrasting shimmer.

Pink Flamingo is described as "a bright and fun pink crème with gold micro iridescent micro flakes."
Application & Formula: A little on the thick side, but nothing that can't be easily managed.
Opacity: Opaque in 2 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes. 
Price: $9.50
Top coat: Out the Door
Thoughts: A beautiful bright pink that is the perfect shade for summer!
Wild Orchid Paradise is described as "a vibrant orchid crème with pink iridescent micro flakes."
Application & Formula: Good formula. Easy, smooth application.
Opacity: Opaque in 2 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes. 
Price: $9.50
Top coat: Out the Door
Thoughts: This is probably my favorite shade of purple! Wild Orchid Paradise is a beautiful shade that Amy captured perfectly.
Green Iguana is described as "a lush green crème with turquoise iridescent micro flakes."
Application & Formula: Formula is a tad bit thinner than the rest. I still had visible nail line at 2 coats. Easy application. 
Opacity: Opaque in 3 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes. 
Price: $9.50
Top coat: Out the Door
Thoughts: Green and turquoise? Yes please! This is my favorite shade of green. Not too dark, and not too bright either. This one did stain for me, but other swatchers/bloggers did not have the same issues I had with staining. So I think it's safe to say you won't either, I'm just weird ;)
Purple Flip Flop is described as "an amethyst Purple crème with blue iridescent micro flakes"
 
 
Application & Formula: Good formula. Easy, smooth application.
Opacity: Opaque in 2 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes. 
Price: $9.50
Top coat: Out the Door
Thoughts: The blue flakes paired with this perfectly to create an absolutely gorgeous polish! Easily my second favorite of the bunch. Stay tuned for my favorite ;)
Blue Hawaiian is described as "a turquoise blue crème with gold iridescent micro flakes."
 
 
Application & Formula: Good formula. Easy, smooth application.
Opacity: Opaque in 2 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes. 
Price: $9.50
Top coat: Out the Door
Thoughts: Beautiful sky blue shade! Reminds me of clear, blue skies on a perfect summer day. With some gold thrown in there ;)
Blue Lagoon is described as "a Bold blue crème with pink iridescent micro flakes."
 
 
Application & Formula: Good formula. Easy, smooth application.
Opacity: Opaque in 2 coats.
Dry time: Dries very quickly. Less than 5 minutes.

Thoughts: MY FAVORITE! Not just of this collection, but of all time. This shade made my brain turn to colorful mush. It's almost a burple shade, just absolute perfection all around!
