Black Dahlia Lacquer Dash of Neon Collection Swatches & Review

Friday, May 6, 2016

Hey guys. I was thrilled when Deanna asked me to swatch her spring collection, and I was floored when I saw it was a 10 piece! This is the biggest collection I've swatched to date, so prepare for LOTS of pics after the jump!

Description: A neon turquoise jelly holo
Application & Formula: Perfect formula. Easy, smooth application
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full
Description: A full coverage glitter polish featuring holo neon blue, turquoise, navy and sea green glitter, with an accent of matte aqua hexes in a clear base
Application & Formula: Unfortunetly I found the formula to be very thick and difficult to apply. The glitters pool on the brush so you may be better off applying with a sponge. I didn't have any make up sponges for these swatches.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.00 8 ml mini / $9.50 14 ml full
Description: A neon Shamrock green jelly holo
Application & Formula: Good formula, first coat goes on very sheer but builds up nicely. Easy application.
Opacity: 2 thick coats / 3 thin coats
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full
Description: A neon iris purple jelly holo
Application & Formula: Good formula, first coat goes on very sheer but builds up nicely. Easy application.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full
Description: A pink-leaning peach crelly packed with holo light and dark gold micro glitter, neon lemon micro glitter, and glass flecks that shift from gold to aqua to green, finishing with a scattered holo finish.
Application & Formula: I found the formula to be a little gritty but apply top coat and problem solved. Can you believe this is ONE COAT? I didn't even need to do another coat to even things out because it applies so smoothly.
Opacity: 1 coat
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full
Description: A bright plum crelly featuring matte red, bright orange, neon blue and neon pink glitter hexes of varying sizes, with an accent of large lavender dots
Application & Formula: The big glitters are hard to fish out, so putting the bottle upside down a while before applying will benefit you. Glitters don't pool on brush or nail, applies smoothly.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.00 8 ml mini / $9.50 14 ml full
Description: A light fossil grey crelly packed with bright red, neon pink, neon violet, green, tangerine, yellow, neon blue, gold and white flakies
Application & Formula: Perfection! I adore this shade SO much, it's super unique and I have nothing like it in my collection!!
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.00 8 ml mini / $9.50 14 ml full
Description: A muted neon yellow-orange jelly holo
Application & Formula: Good formula, easy smooth application.
Opacity: 2 thick coats / 3 thin coats
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full
Description: A current red crelly with a hint of magenta, loaded with navy, light blue, aqua and violet holo glitter with a touch of holo neon lemon glitter
Application & Formula: The big glitters are hard to fish out, so putting the bottle upside down a while before applying will benefit you. It's easy to get overzelaous with the glitter on this one, so watch your brush and make sure you don't have *too* much on there before you apply, or your glitters may pool on the nail.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.00 8 ml mini / $9.50 14 ml full
Description: A neon watermelon pink jelly holo
Application & Formula: Perfect formula. Easy, smooth application
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $6.75 8 ml mini / $10.75 14 ml full

Price & Availability: $6.75 for the 8 ml version and $10.75 for the 14 ml full size. Rose Bud, Purple China Aster, Blue Spirea and Wargrave Geraniums will cost $6 for the smaller size and $9.50 for the full size version. Releases Friday, May 6 at 5 pm CST

Final thoughts: If you made it all the way through this post, then I applaud you! I love this collection because there is something for everyone. The only miss for me is Blue Spirea. My picks: Rose Bud, Peach Crocuses & Lavender Bellflowers.
