Lac Attack: Cell Block Tango - Review and Swatches

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Hey guys! Today's blog post is a review on Lac Attack's new polish collection called Cell Block Tango! It's based on the musical Chicago! I was so excited to get the opportunity to review these polishes because I absolutely adore Chicago. It's got some pretty catch tunes....mhmm!

Below is the set in minis that I was sent for review. I was so pleasantly surprised to find out how BIG these minis were! They are 6ml whereas the typical minis are 3-4ml.

Here is a brief description of each color in this set as described by Lac Attack:
  • Uh-Uh: Uh-Uh is a purplish/magenta color with a beautiful shimmer.
  • Lipschitz: Lipschitz is a lovely medium green shimmer and tiny charcoal-colored flakies.
  • Cicero: Cicero is a deep purple shimmer with coppery flakies.
  • Squish: Squish contains black, gunmetal silver, and red glitter in hexes and bars.
  • Pop: Pop contains hot pink and black matte glitter in circles and hexes in a clear base.
  • Six: Six contains six different kinds of metallic glitter in a clear base, in green, purple, and blue!
All swatches below are shown with top coat.

So let's begin this wonderful review with Uh-Uh. This is pretty much exactly how Lac Attack describes it. It's a beautiful purple/magenta shimmer polish. It does shimmer more with a top coat on than without. I applied 2 coats of this polish and if you do decide to wear this without a top coat, it does appear suede-like.

Jade green shimmer polish. Yes please! I also applied 2 coats of this and it performs just like Uh-Uh. I am disappointed how little the flakes appear on the nail though. They just get hidden by the gorgeousness that is the GREEN SHIMMER. This is an appropriate green for any time of the year. Get your holiday nail art ideas ready with this one!

YAY, the third shimmer finish in this collection! Again, the flakies disappointed me because you honestly can't see them with all the purple shimmery goodness. I DO love how deep this purple color is though. At first glance, especially looking at the brush right out of the bottle, it looks a bit grayed out. Don't worry though because with just 2 coats anda  top coat, you'll have a perfect Fall purple mani.

Gimme all the bar glitters! Gimme all the hex glitters! SQUISH them all together and make it a glitter topper! At first glance, doesn't this look like the epoxy garage floor? I always loved that look. I also really love this glitter topper. I applied just ONE coat over 2 coats of China Glaze Recycle. The formula is not thick at all and you get a GREAT base to glitter ratio. Definitely recommend this to any glitter lover out there.

Pop is a bright and fun glitter topper. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use China Glaze Surreal Appeal under it. Although it cancels out most of the similarly colored glitters in this mix, I LOVED how it looked on my nails.

Green, purple, and blue glitters. Who wouldn't love this? It looks amazing in the bottle and I thought I would love this to pieces! I applied 1 coat over 2 coats of China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. I didn't love this one as much as I thought I would. Don't get me wring, it's a GREAT topper with GREAT glitters. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
