Superficially Colorful Lacquer: Serene, Giggly, Listless, and Poised

Hello there sweets! The Superficially Colorful Lacquer grand opening is in just a couple days now (the shop opens on March 3rd), so I wanted to share a few more swatches of the thermals Jin has sent me. In this post you'll see Superficially Colorful Lacquer Serene, Giggly, Listless, and Poised. I've shown all of them with two coats, both in their natural matte state, and with top coat. The photos for each polish will be in the following order: warm without top coat, cold without top coat, transitioning with top coat, macro with top coat. Let's get started, shall we?

Serene - a pale powder blue (warm) to sky blue (cold) thermal with a silvery shimmer. The color change in this is one of the more subtle ones in her line. Still absolutely gorgeous though. I know I gush over every one of these thermals when I try them, but all of them are stunning in their own way.

Giggly -  a bright fuchsia (warm) to purple (cold) thermal with pink shimmer. I took a couple extra photos of this one in the sunlight because my light box photos weren't incredibly color accurate. Obviously I love this one because, well, PURPLE! The shimmer in this one is really spectacular too. You should probably click these photos to enlarge them... I promise you won't regret it! ;)

Listess - a sage green (warm) to slate gray (cold) thermal with a multicolored shimmer. I don't want to call this polish completely holographic but it does have a touch of scattered holographic particles in it. I normally pick the bright colors as my favorites, but this time Listless was the winner. I am 100% in love with this polish.

Poised - an amber based, burnt orange (warm) to deep, olive-toned brown (cold) thermal with golden shimmer and micro-flakies. I'm not sure if this polish will be available when the shop opens or not because I believe Jin is still doing some tweaking on the formula. I think this one is a really unique color though, I certainly don't own anything like it. The shimmer and tiny flakes are pretty amazing.

I don't know how Jin does it, but every time she sends me more thermal polishes I have new obsessions.

Superficially Colorful Lacquer will be available for purchase on March 3rd. They will retail for $9 per 12 mL/0.4 fl oz bottle. You can see my swatches of Jin's other thermal polishes here and here, and her non-thermals here.

Please tell me what you think of these! Do you love thermals as much as I do? What colors of thermals would you love to see that you haven't seen yet?


  1. You are amazing!! Thank you so so so very much!!!

  2. These are amazballs. That is the only word to describe it. I love that they are a shimmer temp polish. The only other temp polishes I've seen have been cremes! Love this!
