Arcane Lacquer is a relatively obscure Australian indie brand, created by the blogger behind Nail Gun XS. I’ve been eyeing these polishes for a while, as I find her choice of colours and glitters quite interesting. So I finally took the plunge and purchased a couple, and the first one I’ve tried was Erudite Charm – you’ll find more swatches of it after the jump!
Arcane Lacquer Erudite Charm is a dusty blue crelly filled with tiny glitters in black and light blue, as well as a good dose of pink shimmer. It applies quite well – the glitter doesn’t get in the way and the formula is just right, not runny or thick.
My swatches show 2 coats of Erudite Charm and 1 coat of topcoat. It doesn’t need any real “smoothing”, although it does look much more “finished” when topcoated. These swatches were made in direct sunlight to capture the lovely shimmer, so bear in mind that this polish will look a bit darker in the shade.
So what do you think of this polish? I loved the combination of base & shimmer. Have you tried anything from Arcane Lacquer yet?
