Alchemy Lacquers: Witches Weeds- Swatches & Review

Hey guys! I have just one more post before I head off to bed. Like I said in my previous post, Alchemy Lacquers isn't just releasing her Apothecary's Cabinet collection tomorrow. Rebecca is also releasing a second Halloween inspired collection called Witches Weeds. Check out all the polishes down below! 

The Witches Weeds collection also consists of five new polishes, including some linear holos! I'm not gonna lie, I have a love hate relationship with Alchemy Lacquers. Hands down, this brand is the hardest to photograph. I live the polishes, they're always so amazing. But I always have a hard time capturing them accurately. And don't get me wrong, that's a good thing because it just shows how much work and detail Rebecca puts into each polish. Remember, this is being released tomorrow, Monday, October 20th at 8 PM

Belladonna is a grey crelly with an intense purple/pink shimmer and silver micro flakes. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. This was so hard to capture! It's not as grey as it's showing, the shimmer is pretty intense but I just couldn't capture it. It's so pretty though, it's a great twist on a grey polish. The formula and application was great. 

Hemlock is a metallic blue leaning teal with linear holo and a duo chrome effect that shifts from green to gold. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. The description I provide is just my best guess and really just describing what I see but it's so hard to describe. It shifts through so many colors that I'm not quite sure what the base color is lol. All you need to know is that it's gorgeous and you need it in your life. Trust me, you do. On top of how beautiful it is, the formula was fantastic #winning 

Mandrake is a light brown linear holo with silver shimmer through out and a gold to red duo chrome effect. I used 3 coats for the pictures below, with no top coat. Are you tired of the same old nudes? Are you waiting for something more exciting? Then wait no more! This polish is just for you! It is so beautiful, it has the strong linear holo, and then you tilt it to front and you have the silver shimmer. And you tilt it back and you have the gorgeous duo chrome. Plus, the formula was perfect. You need this! 

Henbane is a deep magenta red with linear holo. I used 2 coats for the pictures below with no top coat. The holo is really strong, I totally forgot to get a shot of this outdoors. It is so pretty! And of course, the formula was fantastic. 

Nightshade is deep blurple with a vibrant green shimmer. I used 2 coats for the pictures below with no topcoat. I really like this one too. It looks way darker in the bottle than on the nail. It was a nice surprise. It's still pretty dark. My camera kept picking the base up as blue though, but it actually more purple IRL. The formula and application was great. 

I mean, you guys already know that I love this collection. I have a lot of nail polish but I can say, that I have no dupes for almost all of these.
