I have a fun post instore! This one is inspired by a day at the beach and brought to you by Texas-based Sweet & Sour Lacquer! Darlene created a two-part collection in a mixture of shades and invoking salty, sun-soaked moments. Let’s jump right in!
Seas The Day & Beachin’ Cremes
As I previously mentioned, this beach-themed collection is broken down into two parts. The first, Seas The Day features four shades in a mixture of finishes.
[They are] each inspired by a different “feeling” or “sight”, taking our nails to the beach during these times where we can’t or shouldn’t physically be there.” – Darlene
Seas The Day
Sand Between My Toes
The first polish we meet is Sand Between My Toes! This is a tan nude crelly polish with gold holographic glitter. It applies smoothly and flakes pop prettily in there. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Inspired by those moments when you can see the sand sparkling under the sun and you can feel the warmth as you dig your toes in!
Next up, Effervesense! This beauty has a mint green crelly base with matte white glitter shreds, fine silver holographic glitter, and green iridescent shimmer. I love how the shards show up in there! They do however leave behind some texture. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
This one is inspired by the sea foam that forms when waves crash by the shore.
Dance With The Waves
Dance With The Waves has a gorgeous turquoise creme base filled with white shimmer with a hint of violet shimmer. It’s really easy to apply with a nice payoff. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
This one takes me to a breezy yet warm, sunny day, and reminds me of the sound of the water and waves as they dance in the ocean to a beautiful rhythm that touches my soul.
Where The Ocean Meets The Sky
Wrapping up the Seas The Day portion of this collection is Where The Ocean Meets The Sky! The polish has a sky blue jelly base with violet shimmer, blue to violet to purple UCC flakes as well as green, cyan, and sapphire blue UCC flakes. It’s really breathtaking to apply! It is also easy and smooth, sheer, and buildable. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Inspired by the horizon, as far as the eye can see, where blue-green waters meet the bright blue sky.
The Beachin’ Cremes are a five-piece and more of a “punny and feel-good set”! I’m a big fan of cremes so I’m all over these!
Sun’s Out, Buns Out
Sun’s Out, Buns Out is a tan creme polish. The polish wears smooth and glossy. It has a bit of a greenish hue on me in the pictures but not to the naked eye. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
What kind of bun is open for interpretation.
Life Is Better In Flip Flops
Life Is Better In Flip Flops is a pink, watermelon creme polish. Nice and glossy! I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Inspiration is in the name! Flip Flops are a year-round thing for me :p”
Tropic Like It’s Hot
Here we have Tropic Like It’s Hot! This is a fuchsia, magenta creme. Again, I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Reminds me of beach towels and other accessories and how they tend to be so bright and bold in color.
Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care
This is Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care, a luscious grape creme polish! I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
This was the hardest to name. Google showed me the way when I searched for “mermaid hair’ – lots of purple
Havana Good Time
Wrapping this beach day up is Havana Good Time! This is a straight-up blurple (blue-purple) creme. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Just a punny name for Having A Good Time – at the beach, of course!
Beach Day Gradient
Sand Between My Toes, Effervescence, and Dance With The Waves are featured in the gradient mani!
