I'm super stoked - SUPER STOKED to show you this duo!! There are two reasons for this. First, when Taryn (creator and alchemist of Anchor & Heart) asked me to swatch this duo, I had a fangirl moment. And I may have had a fangirl seat wiggle, where I wiggle my butt back and forth and do a little disco thing with my arms.
Don't judge me.
Secondly, when these arrived, I was so giddy - they are the *perfect* colors for the season. PERFECT I SAY. They are called "Melty Ice Cream" and "Lime Berry Slushie."
JUST LOOK AT THEM:
I am reminded of a vintage, 50's styled summer in an ice cream parlor when I look at these. SO CUTE! Let's just get to the swatches before I burst.
First is "Melty Ice Cream"
Melty Ice Cream is a lovely pale bleached neon pink with a rainbow shimmer, subtle holo pigment, and pink microglitter. Opaque in 3 thin coats, and it applies like a dream! No streaking or pulling or anything! It did take closer to the 5 minute mark in dry time, but I don't know a single crelly that doesn't take that long due to the consistency.
And of then there's "Lime Berry Slushie:"
Lime Berry Slushie is a bleached neon lime green crelly with iridescent green microglitter and a speckling of matte and holo blue glitter in different shapes and sizes. The larger sizes tended to fall to the bottom, but that is because this formula is less on the thick side (which I appreciate). A good shake before application is all you need - no fishing required. Opaque in 3 thin coats.
I love this duo. I LOVE this duo. This is the Real Talk talking, not the Fan Girl. The formula is perfection - I have a love/hate relationship in general with crellies because they are usually on the thick side in order to suspend all the goodness. But I don't mind giving the bottle a little shake before application if it means I get an easier formula to work with.
You can purchase this duo tomorrow, Thursday, at 9pm EST at the link listed below with all the Anchor & Heart Lacquer social links. This duo is LIMITED EDITION, so...get it quick, mmmkay? :D You can purchase it as a set or separately. There will also be a re-stock of a lot of other colors, as well as past duos that will now be available individually (whereas before, you could only purchase the set). Here's all the info you need:
What do you think of this duo? Do you also prefer a thinner formula with a little more shaking required, or do you like it better thick? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Polish was sent to me by the maker for photography purposes and an honest review, as I have provided above with full disclosure.
