Sephora + Pantone Universe Jewel Lacquer in Parachute Purple Photos, Swatches & Review
Today's post is on the Sephora + Pantone Universe Jewel Lacquer in Parachute Purple. This line of polishes is no longer available on Sephora unfortunately, but I thought I would still make the post in case you're able to come across it somewhere!
The first thing I'll say is that the box it comes in is pretty, ha ha. I don't usually include the box packaging of products but whatever. Moving on!
Beautiul, right? The Jewel Lacquers are "precious shades in multidimensional jewel finishes". I actually first discovered these on another beauty blog quite a while ago.. But I was able to get the shade I liked most (Parachute Purple!) for $6 off Sephora before they were all gone.
I love how the bottle looks but at the same time it makes me go "Ehhhh..." because of all of the extra glass. This bottle contains less polish then a lot of my others from different brands which kind of sucks but it's whatever. While all of the extra glass really isn't necessary it sure does look nice..!
Alright, I'm just going to get into swatches so you can see how it looks out of the bottle! I'll have it swatched both on a nail wheel as well as my own nails.
For the nail wheel I used two thin coats, and on my own nails I just used one thicker coat. It's opaque with either the two thin coats or one thicker one, so it would just be up to your preference what you do.
I found this polish very nice to work with; it was even with little to no streaks and any streaks you did get disappeared once dry. I'm not sure what else to say.. It's just a great polish! The only thing I didn't like that much was that I found the handle to be a bit short, or at least shorter then other polishes - and it made application a little bit awkward.
And once again, the color is beautiful! Love love love it. So, if you love it too then I hope you'll somehow be able to track down a bottle! I would definitely recommend this if you can get your paws on it.
