Lorelei Lacquer Neon Sunset Collection Part 2!

**Press Sample**

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have the second half of the upcoming Neon Sunset Collection by Lorelei Lacquer to share with you! As I stated in yesterday's post, this collection consists of 9 polishes: 7 holos and 2 crellies so I split it up into 2 installments. You can see part one here. Keep reading after the break to see individual swatches!

Lorelei Lacquer Pretty Mama, $9 full size, $5 mini 
Carrying on from yesterday, the 6th polish I swatched from the Neon Sunset Collection was Pretty Mama which if you know me, you know is another favorite! I do love a good crelly and this one is GOOD! This polish can best be described as a light baby pink crelly with blue and pink matte hex glitters with blue and pink shimmery microflakies throughout. The formula was really nice on this polish, its shown here in 2 coats plus topcoat. I likely should have done a third coat for this one like I did I Wanna Take You because I still have slight VNL but it didn't bother me when I swatched it. The first coat was a little streaky as is typical with this type of crelly polish but the second coat self leveled and just turned out lovely. I really like the addition of the microflakies to this polish, it almost gives it a lavender tint.

Lorelei Lacquer Key Largo, $10 full size, $6 mini

The seventh polish from the collection is Key Largo, a goldenrod shade of orangey yellow that reminds me of marigolds and mangoes. Yeah, I was kind of all over the place when I was swatching! All the while singing, "Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go..." This polish isn't really my favorite shade because I have a hard time wearing oranges and yellows with my skin tone but that is really a personal preference issue. The polish itself has a wonderful 2 coat formula. It wasn't streaky and self leveled really nicely on the second coat. Its shown here in 2 coats plus Seche Vite topcoat. I really love the subtle scatter of holo with this color.

Lorelei Lacquer Montego, $10 full size, $6 mini 

The eighth polish I swatched from Lorelei Lacquer was Montego. This polish is a really beautiful vibrant orchid shade with subtle holographic micro glitter throughout. This is one of the ones that I was most excited to swatch when I saw it in the bottle and it turned out to be just as beautiful on the nail. The formula and application were good for Montego, shown here in 2 coats plus Seche Vite topcoat. This one wasn't streaky and self leveled nicely on the second coat. I love the subtle holo in it, and like Bermuda, I think it will make a great base for nail art.

Lorelei Lacquer Kokomo, $10 full size, $6 mini 
Feast your eyes on Kokomo, the final polish in the Neon Sunset collection by Lorelei Lacquer. Let me be really upfront and tell y'all that I really wasn't looking forward to swatching this one because I don't wear brown polish but...oh my how wrong I was. This is one of my 4 faves from the collection and such a great polish. I think that if you're going to wear brown in the summer, Kokomo is the way to do it. This polish had the strongest holo of the entire collection and the formula was like butter. Shown here in 2 coats plus topcoat, I really feel like this had the absolute best application of the collection. I was telling a friend about it and referred to it as holographic chocolate. :'D No streakiness, no issues with pigment, just perfection. I already have plans for this beauty in some nail art.

And there you have it, the second installment of the Neon Sunset Collection by Lorelei Lacquer. Overall thoughts for the collection: As with the first half of this collection, I really enjoy the variety of colors and finishes. I think this collection has something for everyone and has an overall great formulation. The Neon Sunset Collection launches Friday, June 26th at 6pm CT and retails for $80 for the full sized set and $50 for the mini sized set. You can grab them from
