Lights Lacquer – Individual Shades Swatches

Lights Lacquer is showing a trend of releasing individual shades outside of their collections, and I’m showing a trend of picking up every single polish they release. Listen, I’m a blogger and I’m just CURIOUS, OKAY. And for the first two, okay I was ordering anyways and just chucked them in, save on shipping and everything. Either way you’ll be getting swatches of them in case you’re curious how they look and if you want to order them, so it’s all about helping the reader, really.

They’ve now released two* (at the time of originally writing this, I’m sure there will be many more) of these individual shades. I’ve picked up both so far, and as they continue to release, and I pick them up, I’ll be adding onto and updating this post with swatches of each new shade! That way it’s much easier to find them all in one place. There’s also links to my reviews of their full collections at the end, so it’ll be like a whole Lights Lacquer resource. WOO!

As always, these are available on the Lights Lacquer website, and each polish retails for $9.50 each.

Onto the swatches!

Lights Lacquer Polished Gems Collection

I’m slowly getting all organized and back on a set blogging schedule, and ready to get out even more content this year. I’ve really embraced my Type A personality so far in 2020 and I have about 6 notebooks and lists going keeping me organized and honestly, I LOVE IT. Who doesn’t love lists? And of course, I hope this means more efficient blogging, and more consistent and timely posts for you! WOO! Enough rambling, let’s get into the main focus!

And so with that, here’s the first nail collection post of the year!

This is the newest collection from Lights Lacquer, KathleenLight’s nail polish brand. This was released for Winter 2019, and it’s called the ‘Polished Gems’ collection. There are 6 shades and they’re all themed off of different gemstones.

Listen, I originally was going to practice some self-control and pass on this collection. And I did for a while. But then I started seeing more and more swatches and just feeling more and more swayed, and alright I caved. I bought myself the bundle – as well as the two individual shades they have out as well, Cold Turkey & Moonstone, expect swatches of those coming as well. They were just so PRETTY on the nails and I just wanted them, okay.

The bundle was $52 for all 6 shades, or they’re $9.50 each for individual shades. They are only available online at the Lights Lacquer website currently.

Lights Lacquer GRL PWR Collection

I’m currently battling a gnarly chest cold, and hacking up a nice dry cough, so you know, perfect time to hole up and talk about nail polish! I feel like I use a lot of things as excuses to hole up and swatch and talk about nail polish, but it’s fine, everything’s fine.

In this post, we’re talking about the polish release that we’ve all been waiting for! This is the first collection from Lights Lacquer, the new polish company from Kathleen Lights. Kathleen originally owned and released with KL Polish – and then there were issues with the investors and she ended up pulling out, and then eventually forming the new company Lights Lacquer.

I never ended up trying KL Polish while it was still a thing. I had so many other polishes that I was always trying, it was just never on my list or in my budget. But now with so much hype around this new release, I knew I had to try it out.

Their first release is the ‘GRL PWR’ collection, and it features 6 shades based around badass and strong ladies (who doesn’t love that). It features 3 straight creams, 2 more shimmery creams and then 1 glittery topper. These retail for $9.50 each or $52 for the full 6 polish bundle, which saves you $5. These can be found on the Lights Lacquer website.

Let’s get into these pretties already!
