Envy Lacquer Rock Candy Collection

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I have for you swatches of Envy Lacquer‘s new Rock Candy Collection! This collection consists of two trios – the Bright trio and the Neutral Trio. All polishes in this collection are jellies with amazing holographic flakie shards and micro glitter.

All swatches were taken indoors under a combination of Cree daylight and LED bulbs.

The Brights Trio

“Zapped Apple”

Zapped Apple is a bright neon green jelly filled with holographic flakie shards and holographic micro glitter. Shown here is three thin coats plus top coat. This polish has a very nice formula that is easy to apply and control. As you can see, this polish is packed with those amazing holo shards so you don’t have to worry about fishing for them.

“Razzmatazz”

Razzmatazz is a VERY vibrant fuchsia jelly with holographic flakie shards and micro glitter. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. As with Zapped Apple, this polish also has a nice formula. The dry time on this polish is great so the three coats went on very quickly and smoothly. I am a stickler for visible nail line (VNL) so I added a third coat for more opacity but two would be sufficient if you don’t mind a little VNL.

“Blueberry Blizzard”

Blueberry Blizzard is a cerulean/teal  jelly with holographic flakie shards and micro glitter. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. Although I usually go for the brighter colors in a collection, this one is my favorite from the brights trio! The holographic shards and micro glitter come alive in this polish! Same great formula and dry time as the other two in the trio.

The Neutral Trio

“Unwrap A Kiss”

Unwrap A Kiss is a light steel grey crelly with holographic shards and micro glitter. Shown here is two generous coats plus top coat. The formula here is a little thicker than the other polishes but definitely not thick enough to cause any application issues. Here the holographic shards and glitter are subtle so it’s a perfect color to add to any work appropriate polish collection.

“Nekkid Mocha”

Nekkid Mocha is a stunning brown leaning nude jelly with holographic shards, holographic micro glitter, and added blue/green shimmer. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. This polish is the sheerest in the collection so you may need to add a fourth coat depending on how much coverage you get from each coat. Now four coats is usually a daunting task but this polish dries very quickly and levels very, very well so achieving complete opacity would be a breeze.

Oh and the added shimmer in this polish is to die for! I was able to capture it pretty well in the bottle macro photo below.

“Licorice Whip”

Last but certainly not least is my favorite from the neutral collection – Licorice Whip. This polish is a black jelly with holographic shards, micro glitter, and slightly larger hex glitters. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. This polish is so much fun! It was like having a galaxy party on my nails. The contrast between the black base and the holographic elements is absolute perfection!

Overall Thoughts

I am LOVING this collection! Formulas on all polishes are great – easy application, easy control, and fast dry time. They all apply so smoothly even though they are all packed with shards and glitters. Since they are also quite easy to control, I needed to do very minimal clean up which is always a plus!

My favorites would be Blueberry Blizzard, Nekkid Mocha, and Licorice Whip. ❤

Currently both trios are available for pre-order here for $25 plus shipping per trio. Individual polishes will be available for purchase starting August 1st.
