Aphrodite Lacquers- Montagues & Fortune's Fool

Today I have two gorgeous polishes that were sent for review from one of our favorite indie sellers, Aphrodite Lacquers. These polishes are from her Romes and Jules collection. I'll let you guess what inspired this collection :)

First is Montagues- a black jelly polish with pink, green, blue and purple shiny glitters. The black jelly base is a bit on the sheer side so I showed it here with 4 coats on its own (pinky and ring) and one coat over black undies (middle and pinky). There was still some VNL (visible nail line) after 3 coats so I added another one to cover that up. The two looks don't seem very different in this shot but check the macro shots below to see the differences up close.

One coat over black
Four coats- The polish doesn't look this light in person but this shot shows the depth of the polish and all of the layers of glitter

Next up is Fortune's Fool- a milky light blue polish, lots of different blue and holo glitters, with a hidden light blue shimmer. This is my favorite thing that Aphrodite does SO well. The hidden shimmer is just to die for. I love it so much. The milky base is a little on the sheer side as well so I have two different looks for you again. 

Macro bottle shot. LOVE!
3 coats alone
Apparently I smudged the side of my ring finger!
Fortune's Fool was a little too soft on its own for me so I wanted to try it layered over another pastel I had on hand. Here is one coat over Essie-Bangle Jangle (watch out for a full review soon!).

Pros- I love love LOVE the hidden shimmer that Aphrodite uses in a lot of her polishes.

Cons- The glitters in Montagues didn't apply as evenly as I'd hoped. I had a dab a few of them into place.

Overall- This is another gorgeous collection from Aphrodites Lacquers. It's cohesive and the names are so fitting.

Where to Buy- You can purchase directly from etsy. Keep up with new collections and shop restocks by liking Aphrodite Lacquers on Facebook!
