Alchemy Lacquers: Artic Alchemy - Swatches & Review

Hey guys! How is everyone's year going so far? Now that all the stress of the holidays is gone, I'm feeling a lot better. Let me know what you've done, down below in the comments. Let's get right to it this time cause I have an awesome collection to show you! Alchemy Lacquers has once again hit it out of the park with these gorgeous colors. Take a look at what I'm talking about down below.


Alchemy Lacquers is releasing her new Artic Alchemy collection which consists of 9 colors of which 8 are new and 1 is old. This collection is being released Thursday, January 15th at 8 PM EST. I really love all of these polishes, there are some in there that I can't wait to do nail art with cause of that gorgeous shifting. 

Thundersnow is a blue leaning, cool grey with blue and silver flakies. I used 2 coats in the pictures below. I really like this shade of grey. It's kinda blue, kinda grey and it's just works really well with this combo. The formula and application was great.



Permafrost is a grey creme with linear holo and rainbow colored flakies. I used 2 coats for the pictures below. I gotta say, I love Alchemy Lacquers' take on this grey. I mean, grey polishes are not the funnest colors, but with all those gorgeous flakies, not to mention the holo, this polish is so beautiful! Plus the formula and application was great!




Moraine is a silver flakie polish with holo and gold shifting flakies. I used 2 coats for the picture below, formula and application was great. This is a favorite of mine from the collection. I wish I could have been able to capture this better. It's definitely unique in my collection.




Snow Of The Vale is a white based crelly with white hexes in different shapes and sizes and blue and purple shimmer throughout. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. The formula was great on this one! No bold spots, it just went on really smoothly. This is one of my favorites from the collection! It totally does remind me of snow. It's so pretty.

Gilded Icicles is a gold topcoat with rainbow colored flakies running throughout. I wore 2 coats over black. I really wanted it to stand out behind the black but I'm not sure it worked really well lol. Rebecca hasn't done a gilded top coat ever so I was really excited for this one. It's perfect. 




Graupel is another top coat with white, mint and light grey hexes in different shapes and sizes. I wore 1 coat over China Glaze Pack Lightly . I really like how simple this is, what a great combination of colors. The formula and application was great.




Firn is a minty-blue polish with linear holo and blue flakies and rainbow shimmer running throughout. I wore 3 coats for the pictures below. This is definitely my favorite out the collection! That base color is just so beautiful!  Plus the holo, and the flakies, love it! Plus the formula and application was flawless.






Dawn Of The North is a blue to fuchsia shifting polish. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. That's the best that I can describe it lol. It's just too gorgeous of a polish to describe, you just have to see it. This is also one of my favorites. I'm still debating it in my head whether I like this one more than Firn but I don't know! I definitely don't have anything like this in my collection. Wouldn't this be perfect for some mermaid inspired nail art!? I'm totally gonna do it! 






Overall this collection is perfection. It truly does live up to it's name. I know you guys will love these polishes, they are much more amazing in person. Especially Dawn of the North and Firn. At least get those, trust me! This collection is being released Thursday, January 15th at 8 PM EST at Alchemy Lacquers! Be there!
