Gunpowder Lacquer Sunshine and Whiskey Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone! It's been a little while because my camera crapped out on me, but I'm back with the debut collection from Gunpowder Lacquer called Sunshine and Whiskey!  Gunpowder Lacquer has a country edge and is all about celebrating a woman's power and femininity.





Let's get to the swatches!

First up is Till I Sea You Again.  It's a medium blue crelly holo.  I love all the blue holos and this is no exception!  No formula issues either.

This is 2 coats.

Drivin' Me Paisley is a bright fuchsia creme color with violet shimmer and some sparse holo.  No application issues!

This is 2 coats.

Floatin Trailer Park is one of my favorites from this collection.  It's a bright turquoise with violet/blue shimmer.  This one applied nicely.

This is 2 coats.

This is 2 coats.

Meet Me in Margaritaville is a neon green creme with a bit of shimmer throughout.  I did find this to be on the thick side.  One other blogger had the same issue, but the rest were fine with it.  Carly plans on thinning it a bit before the release.

This is 2 coats.

Little Red Wagon is a gorgeous warm toned red jelly holo.  If you're on the hunt for a red holo, this is definitely one to check out!  It applies perfectly!

This is 2 coats.

Last but not least is Sundaze.  It's a bright coral cream with subtle holo and a hint of gold shimmer.  This one had a similar formula to Meet Me in Margaritaville and Carly plans on thinning this one a bit as well before the release.

This is 3 coats.

Over all this is a great debut for Gunpowder Lacquer.  I can honestly see myself wearing every single one of these colors, but my favorites are Floatin' Trailor Park, Till I Sea You Again and Little Red Wagon.  I have to say I'm really impressed.

Gunpowder Lacquer will be releasing July 1st, 2015 and are available in both full sized and minis.  Be sure to check Gunpowder Lacquer out  in the following links for more updates!
