The Lacquer Cabinet: Amber Norell for Nailtini

Hey there, reader! I haven't had a Nailtini Lacquer Cabinet collection to share with you for a while, so here is one that was released over the summer. The curator for this collection is Amber Norell, who is a makeup/hair artist, model, and blogger. The theme she chose for this collection is versatility.

 Absinthe - "creamy, slightly dusky lime green". This bright pistachio green creme has a nice formula and covered easily in two coats.

Blue Blazer - "deep, intense periwinkle". The formula on this one was a little bit more on the tricky side. It was a little thick and I had to be a bit more careful with my application. It dries to a sort of satin finish without top coat added, as I've shown it here. I also had some trouble photographing this color, its not quite as bright or cobalt as it looks here.

 Opal Fizz - "sheer pink opalescence with strong blue fire". This one is not a polish I would wear alone, it is intended for layering or mixing with other polishes. I've shown one coat of Opal Fizz over both colors in the collection.

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.
