Anchor & Heart Lacquer - Haul & Swatches

Hello! Today I have swatches of a small Anchor & Heart Lacquer order I placed recently. I have a couple of Anchor & Heart's polishes, but had yet to order directly from the US website to here in the UK. I had a discount code to use so figured I'd give it a go! I'm happy to report that my order arrived safely, didn't take too long to arrive once posted, and shipping costs were reasonable. I also managed to escape any customs charges. I ordered three polishes, all of which are prototypes. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

'Royals' is a rich purple/blue crelly base with linear holographic, and both black and navy blue glitters. Being a crelly base this is on the sheerer side, but I found it built up really well. Below is three coats with topoat.

'Love Song' is a bright watermelon pink crelly base with white, pink, and red glitters. The base is more on the jelly side to help the glitters show through, so it is quite sheer. I could still see my nail line after three coats, but the glitter helps distract from it. Below is three coats with topcoat.

'Encourage Mint' is a bright minty green crelly base with teal, mint, purple, baby pink, and orange glitters, and a blue to purple shimmer. Similar to 'Love Song', this is more on the jelly side, so I could see nail line after three coats. Below is three coats with topcoat.

What do you think? Are you a crelly person? I definitely find myself more and more drawn to crellies. I think they're fun, and can be so unique. I think 'Royals' was my surprise favourite out of these three.

You can find all three polishes mentioned, along with a lot more, on the Anchor & Heart website here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
