I had the opportunity to play around with the Bright and Bold collection, which includes six lacquers in purples, pinks, and red-oranges. They all look beautiful together and the purples are so up my alley.
I began with a base of Seche Not Easily Swept Away, a lighter lilac shade. The formula was impressive; I achieved full coverage in just two thin coats. I think if you had a heavier hand with your coats, you could even get away with one. That's a big deal for lighter shades like this!
Then, I added small flowers using Seche Wild One (the orange) and Seche Pretty Little Heartbreaker (the pink). To finish off the look, I added dots in the middle of the pink flowers using Seche Scorchin' Hot, a fiery red.
Based on my experience using the shades in my nail art, I would venture to guess that Pretty Little Heartbreaker is similar in formula to Not Easily Swept Away, and Wild One and Scorchin' Hot would only need one coat when worn alone.
I know floral isn't exactly groundbreaking (for spring or otherwise), but I just can't get enough of these little full nail floral patterns. They're easy, take almost no time to do, and look fresh and fun.
Overall, I was really impressed with my first Seche lacquer experience. Of course, I topped the whole manciure off with a generous coat of my bestie -- Seche Vite!
Seche lacquers are available on Ulta.com, though this particular collection isn't on there (yet?). You can also find them on Head2Toe Beauty, and in professional salons and beauty supply stores. Be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter for more info.
