The Lacquer Cabinet: May, Maryam Maquillage for Nailtini

Hi guys! Today I have some swatches for you of the shades from the May edition of Nailtini's lacquer cabinet, and I think this collection is my favorite so far. The curator for this collection is Maryam Maquillage. She took inspiration for her collection from a vacation the took in Southeast Asia.
Ginger Lily - "shimmering sunshine yellow". Two coats, no top coat. Application was smooth and easy, as with all the Nailtini polishes I've tried.
Dragon's Kiss - "creamy magenta spiked with black dragon fruit 'seeds'". Two coats, with top coat. I didn't do any sort of manipulating the glitter, and application was amazing. You could possibly get away with one coat of this if you were careful, but you get a bit more depth with the glitters after two coats. Honestly, I didn't expect to love this shade as much as I did because I'm pretty much over glitter in cream bases, but this won me over.
Lagoon - "sheer pale water blue with silver micro-glitter". Two coats, no top coat. Again, great formula. I love this one, it definitely looks like tropical water. Nice and squishy jelly base to let the shimmer show.
Here's a little quickie patchwork tape mani I did with all the colors. I think they all compliment each other so well, don't you?
The Lacquer Cabinet is available to order from the 'Tini Beauty website. One monthly box costs $25 and comes with three lacquers plus two empty mini bottles for trying your own hand at being a mixologist. You can also save by getting a six month subscription for $23/month or a year subscription for $20/month.
