Nine Zero Lacquer June 2016 + Valley Isle Collection Swatches & Review

Hey kids! I'm excited to show off some new polish shades from indie Nine Zero Lacquer for you today! I've been loving everything they've come out with, I almost can't believe they're less than a year old, because the quality of their products is SO great! I think it helps that the brains behind the brand, Jess, is a content creator on YouTube, she's been reviewing nail polish for years so she knows her stuff! I have the new Polish of the Month shade (a new one is created for each month of this year, see the previous shades here) and the upcoming Valley Isle four piece collection inspired by Jess's recent trip to Maui!

June 2016 is a light purple linear holographic with added holographic silver microglitter. Like all of her previous polish of the month shades, this applied easily and covered in two coats. My birthday is in June so I was hoping to really love this shade...and I do! So beautiful!

Now for the Valley Isle collection shades! Volcanic has a rusty red base filled with copper and bronze flake shimmer. The sparkle bits in this almost remind me of glass flecks, they are SO blingy! Much more so than a photo can convey. Amazing formula, smooth and opaque in two coats.

Coconut has a custard cream colored base filled with gold flake shimmer. I found this a little thick and draggy, I needed to wait for it to dry well between coats or else it would pull up on itself. This is three coats.

Trade Winds is a light blue jelly with blue shimmer, color-shifting flakies, gold flake shimmer and holographic micro shard glitter. Sheerish on one coat, because of the jelly-ness, but it builds up nicely without getting thick. I used three coats for full opacity. This has that skunky sort of smell to it that you get with some blue polishes, not a big deal but something to mention.

Black Cove has a black jelly base with silver holographic micro shard glitter and what looks like teeny tiny bits of holo. Sheer on the first coat, but surprisingly this got opaque in just two layers. Dries dull and a tiny bit bumpy, so you'll want a thick top coat for shine and smoothness. It surprises me how much I liked this, the holo stands out really nicely!

The polish of the month color is already available on the Nine Zero Lacquer website for $11. The Valley Isle collection will be up on the website for pre-order on June 3rd at 11am EST through June 8th at 11:59pm EST. I believe they will be stocked for regular purchase once the pre-orders have gone out. Are you interested any of the colors I showed you today? I love these small collections with fun inspirations, I hope to see more of them from Jess!
