Swatch and Review: Living Dead Lacquer Christmas Trio


Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have swatches from Living Dead Lacquer to share with you. These 3 polishes make up her Christmas trio and I'm super excited to show them to you. If you haven't heard of Living Dead Lacquer yet, she's a Georgia based indie brand that carries polishes and nail care products like mani bombs and cuticle oils. She makes some gorgeous polishes so let's jump right in to the swatches!




The first polish I swatched is Mistletoe Hung Where You Can See, a traditional leafy green jelly filled with tiny gold micro flakies and scattered holo glitter. This one was very sheer on the first coat but built up nicely in 3 thin coats. The formula was a bit on the thicker side but application was a breeze. My swatch shows 3 thin coats plus topcoat. The second photo is with a matte topcoat applied. Look how those flakies pop! The matte topcoat also brightened the green and almost made it lime-y which was fun because it totally changed the look of the polish.

The next one I swatched in the trio is Sleigh Ride Together With You, an orange toned red filled with tiny gold micro flakies and gold shimmer. I don't typically gravitate towards orange based reds but the squishiness of this jelly made me love it! The formula is similar to Mistletoe, 3 thin coats for opacity. It was a little thick but application was easy. My swatches show 3 coats plus topcoat. The second photo shows it with a matte topcoat applied. The matte topcoat on this one brought out the orange!

The final polish in the trio was the star of the show for me. I want to wear this all December long and put Santas and reindeer and snowflakes and, and, and ALLLL the things over this beauty. This is Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, a white crelly filled to the max of all of the most delicious Christmas glitter. Surprisingly, this one was opaque in just 2 coats which surprised me being that its a white crelly. Formula wise, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town was a bit on the thick side due to the glitter but I had no problems with application and all of the glitter came out easily with no fishing. My swatches show 2 thin coats plus topcoat. The second photo is with matte topcoat. I'm going to need a full size of this gorgeousness!
