My Arcane Lacquer Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s brand on my journey through my stash is Arcane Lacquer. Do you own any of this brand?

My Arcane Lacquer Collection


I own 9 of this brand but had only worn 2 of them before today. (You can see those posts HERE.) I’d bought 6 of them in 2014 from llarowe.com and the other 3 in 2016 from Color4Nails.com. I like seeing how a brands’ bottle label evolves over the years. This was an Australian brand that unfortunately closed up in 2016.

Here are the 9 I own:

Circle, Cycles &Seasons
Colour of Panic
Dreary Days
Fear Was Just A Word
Ineffable
The Power, the Passion
Undertow
Vast & Vague
Voice of Contention

Here they are on a swatch wheel in the above order…

As usual, I’m going to look closer at some of these. First up are the grays.

Here are:

  • Circle Cycle & Seasons (2 coats on index)  – I’ve worn this one before. It’s an unusual forest green color. . I like it!
  • Dreary Days (2 coats on middle) – This has been SoCal lately, so dreary outside! I love the blue glitter in the gray base on this one!
  • Undertow (2 coats on ring)  – The glitter gets a little lost in the base color on this one. You can see it, but it’s not as pretty as the bottle.
  • Vast & Vague (3 coats on pinky) – I like this much more on the nail than I thought I would. It has such a pretty shimmer.

Now to look at the purples.

Here are:

  • Colour of Panic (3 coats on index) – I love the color combo here! I may have similar polishes to this one, I’ll have to see.
  • Ineffable (2 coats on middle) – I love the gray/purple base! I’m torn on this one. Should I keep it or purge?
  • The Power The Passion (2 coats on ring) – This is so saturated! One coat is plenty. I love this one, it’s my favorite one I own from this brand.
  • Voice of Contention (2 coats on pinky) – I like this pretty holographic but I’m not blown away by it.

So I’ve decided to purge Undertow (gray ring nail), Vast & Vague (gray pinky nail), Ineffable (purple middle nail) and Voice of Contention (purple pinky nail). There’s nothing wrong with any of these, I just can’t see reaching for them again.

 


Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
