Sheswai Lacquers: Swatches & Review

I love this nail polish. I love that this nail polish brand has a manifesto. I love the bottle design. I literally gasped when I first saw them. Sheswai Lacquers are 3-free and sold in Anthropologie stores and online for $16. They have caps made from sustainably harvested wood, grown on family owned tree farms. HOT. And a portion of their sales is "given to organizations that help educate, and sustain our beautiful planet." I got the opportunity to try out two of their colors, which have freaking adorable names, and I was just as impressed with their quality as I was the brand image.

Honeyfox is a bright true red that seriously seduced my eyeballs. There are many reds out there, that is sure enough, but this one is pretty on point. It slid over my tips without any trouble and covered beautifully in two coats. It dried quickly too, I don't usually put topcoat on when I'm swatching and I happened to nick my nail against the bottle before I had taken any photos and it was already solid. Amazing.

Stoned is described as "a smooth pebble grey with a touch of lavender and a hint of shimmer that will leave you feeling blissfully happy." Well it damn well left me happy, it left me ecstatic! I absolutely adore this taupey shimmer bomb, it is so classy but still suitably bold. This is two coats as well.

I know many folks won't splurge $16 on nail polish, but you have to admit, they are awful cute. And from my experience, they perform just as well or better than other high end brands. Check out Sheswai's website, http://sheswai.com/, to see their philosophy on life and polish. I think you'll like what you see.

  15. I wonder if Stoned is a dupe of, or at least similar to, RBL Leila Rose. I'm always on the lookout for a backup bottle of that, but they're hard to come by.
