As mentioned before, I’ve enjoyed adding a couple smaller brands to my list to regularly review. And today we’re looking at a newer release from one of those such brands!
This is the Loud Lacquer collection titled ‘Aqua Tofana’. It’s in collaboration with Bailey Sarian, a makeup YouTuber. I absolutely love Bailey, and her series of “Murder, Mystery and Makeup Mondays”, where she recounts a true crime case while doing her makeup. (She does her makeup just to have something to do with her hands, she doesn’t stop to talk about products or techniques – it’s just focused on the case as an fyi). There was one specific night when I worked late and just had on a playlist of those videos to pass the time, so they’ll always have a place in my heart.
The name ‘Aqua Tofana’, as well as the shade names of the polishes, are in relation to Bailey’s video about Giulia Tofana, a woman from the 1600s who was a “professional poisoner”. That’s right, we’re combining two interests, nail polish and true crime today.
I grabbed this off the Loud website. The full bundle retails for $55 for the 4 polishes, otherwise they range from $12.50-$14.50 each. The bundle came with a fun look booklet, showing the promotional photos of Bailey, as well as these 2 stickers containing references from her videos! (I say “suspish” far too often). Overall it was so fun, and I enjoyed the little extras! They’re currently out of stock on the website, but I highly recommend following Loud on Instagram, as they notify when restocks happen.
As mentioned we have 4 polishes in the set – one cream, 2 shimmery metallics, and one topper. Let’s get into the swatches.Read More »
